Sneak Peeks: Sweetheart paper w/ Baby Love & A Game...

I finally got time to play with the NEW Spray Pen from Close To My Heart. So fun! I filled it up with Cotton Candy Re-inker (6 drops), water (to the 5th line) and Create-A-Shade Pearl Paint (1 drop). This color paired perfect with the NEW Sweetheart Paper (avail 2/1) from the 2011 Spring/Summer Idea Book for some cute Valentine's Day cards.

In this first card I used the adorable new stamp set called Baby Love. It would be great to use for baby showers invitations, baby albums, kid cards, birthday invitations, love cards, etc. It was a must have for me as soon as I saw it! I cut a circle to sprits with my spray pen mixture, I sprayed the circle a few times and set it aside to dry. Once the cotton candy cardstock had been run though my cuttlebug with swiss dots and the edges of all sweetheart papers were inked, I assembed and got to work on my circle. Now that it had a chance to dry I got out some Staz On black ink to stamp my image. You don't have to use the Staz On.... in my second card I used the regular black ink from CTMH. I added the embellishments and viola. It's so hard to see the result of the spray pen in the picture but it looks gorgeous and shimmery in person.

FYI I think my circle is a bit to large, I would have liked it slightly smaller but I used my Martha Stewart Circle cutter and the smallest size it cuts was a 4". I didn't realize it looked too big for the card until I stamped the babies which was my last step. So maybe on my next go around if I recreate this card I would do 3"-3.5" and cut it on my cricut. But anyways.... back to the cards. 

In this second card I used the new tic tac toe stamp set called A Game that is featured in the Inspirations Brochure for January. I went ahead and cut another 4" circle but cut the bottom and side to place along the edge. This was a way for me to make it appear smaller and not have so much space around the stamped image. After the cotton candy sprits was dry, I stamped the tic tac toe grid with the 2 x's in black ink, then stamped the 3 hearts to white daisy cardstock and added tic tac toe top of each heart. Once those were cut out, I put adhered them with some foam squares and added to make the winning game = love!
