Not 2 Shabby

Digital Stamps + A Valentines Kits = 2 Cards

Hello my stamping friends! Today's post is jam packed with goodness!  I am showing off the new Valentines Box from Not 2 Shabby. And using a coordinating digital stamp set (Sprinkled with Love) with the kit to make 2 cards. In the making of these two cards I have a tutorial on how to use the Cameo Silhouette electronic cutter to combine two images to make one new one and then print and cut that image. With this new image print and cut I will show you two cards, one for Valentine's Day and one for Christmas. My Christmas card is for the Crafty Christmas Club monthly hop. Be sure to read to the end of this post to hop along and get your monthly dose of Christmas inspiration!  Okay, let's jump in! 

Check the Not 2 Shabby Valentines Box, the Cameo Silhouette tutorial, and the cards in the video below.

Now let's take a closer look at the cards I made with the Sprinkled with Love digital stamp set

Here you can see I made one card for Valentines Day and the other for Christmas.

Both of my cards are MINI Slimline cards, which is a 6" x 6" piece of card stock folded in half at 3". Cute and easy! And the perfect size for using a 6" x 6" paper pack. Just cut the paper in half and you have a card front. But for my cards I cut my paper to 2-7/8" x 5-7/8" to have a very thin white border around the paper. The paper is from the Frosted and Tufted paper pack (currently only available in the Valentines Box)

My cupcake and cookie image is actually 2 digitals stamps that I combined to make one before printing it out and cutting it out with my Cameo Silhouette. You can see how in the video above. 

I used Copic Markers to color up my image. When I work with Digital stamps I used light weight card stock from Walmart that comes in a ream. It reads through the printer very easily. I use a HP Envy 7645 for printing and have not had any issues with the printed image bleeding when I Copic color them.

My sentiment is from the Sprinkled with Love stamp set. So, the Sprinkled with love set comes in a clear stamp set and as a digital stamp set. It was fun to mix the digital stamps with the actual stamp set. I added a few stickers and sequins from the Valentines Box around my sentiment to finish off the card. 

And now for the Christmas version of my card for the Crafty Christmas Club Hop.

The Crafty Christmas Club is a group of crafters who share Christmas creations on the 25th of every month.

To make some Christmas treats for this card, I went with red frosting and a green cupcake wrapper. I think this cupcake would be so much fun to color up for different holiday and themes. I feel like this cupcake is chocolate peppermint. Red and White frosting would have been another great choice for this card. 

For the background I used the white tufted print from the Frosted and Tufted paper pack.

I added one of the bows from the Ephemera pack, it was not quite the right color to match my card so I colored over it with my RV11 Copic marker, which is one of the colors I used to color the frosting. 

I used the same sentiment on this card, To my sweet friend. And on the inside, Merry Christmas. 

To accent this card I added a few of the small white sequins.  I think it is a yummy Christmas card, even thought my daughter says it looks more like it's a watermelon cupcake. What do you think? 

Now it is time to hop along and see what the other makes did for the Crafty Christmas Club January Hop. Next up is Tania Cordie, check out her creation right here. Continue to hop along from there for more Christmas inspiration.
