Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a fun and safe New Year's Eve. Today is the first challenge of 2010 at Stamp Something, and in honor of the new year, our theme today is "Something New". So pull out those new goodies that Santa left under the tree for you, and Stamp Something! LOL! (Sorry, I couldn't resist!)
This week, we are being sponsored by KLM Digital Designs, and they have generously donated 3 digital images (winners choice!!!) for our prize! They are releasing new images for Valentine's Day today, one of which I will be showing you in a sec, so be sure to pop over and check out all of their cute images! You'll be glad you did!
Now on to my card...
KLM Digital Designs was sweet enough to give the Stamp Something design team images to work with for today's challenge, and it is with great pleasure that I get to show you the adorable new image, Valentine Bear. Isn't he a cutie? I like that he isn't specific to Valentine's Day and can be used for just about any occasion. For my card today, I used him to make a Thinking of You card for a friend who is going through a rough time. There's nothing like a little happy mail to perk you up!
I printed Valentine Bear twice so that I could pop up the hands and heart for a 3D effect. Both images were colored with Copic markers, and then cut out for layering.
My "Something New" is the pretty little heart charm dangling from the ribbon. Santa was a dear, and left a package of them in my stocking this year. They didn't come in blue, so I used a B97 Copic marker to color the center to match my project. I love that you can do that with Copics!
Copic markers used:
Now head on over to the Stamp Something blog to see what the rest of the design team cooked up! If you'd like to play along and get entered for a chance at the prize donated by KLM Digital Designs, make sure to leave us a direct link to your project in the Mr. Linky on the Stamp Something blog by 7pm EST on Thursday, January 7th. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
