"EYE" LOVE YOU

Hey Everyone! Ken here with Ken's Kreations.

Well as everyone in America, I am getting ready for Valentine's Day!! Well with Close To My Heart Product this valentines card was super easy to make and was completed in less than an hour.



So for this card I started with the Hopscotch Workshop On The Go Kit. Now usually you would take this kit and make a few scrapbook layouts, however I took some elements (paper & Extra Thick twine) and made this card. This card measure 5 X 7. The printed card base is measured at 5 X 7 and the smoothie card stock is 4 X 6. the cream card stock is 3.75 X 5.75. Before using my Scotch ATG to adhere the papers down, I took some Pink Floss and Gold Floss and wrapped it around the cream card stock. Once I was done with this I moved onto the stamps. 


I used the Love Ya Silly stamp set and using the FlaxenSunset and Glacier ink pads. Once I had stamped my images on White Card stock I used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut out the 3 monsters. I used some Foam Tape to raise the monsters up form he card stock. Behind the monsters I took the Forever In My Heart stamp set and stamped some hearts in Smoothie Ink.


To The side of the monster I made a spot for my sentiment. I took a pattern off of the Brother Scan N Cut and cut 9 of the above pattern in 3 different pattern papers form the  Hopscotch Workshop On The Go Kit. Under each of the blue pattern paper I raised the edges up using Foam Tape. Using the Love Ya Silly I stamped the sentiment using Black Ink on one of the Tags From The Dimension Sets. Using the thick twine from the  Hopscotch Workshop On The Go Kit I tied the top of the tag. I raised this up with Foam Tape.

YOU MAKE ME A HAPPY CAMPER CARD

Hey everyone Ken here with Ken's Kreations.

I have been so excited to show you my card that I made for my Assistant Manager at my bank. He has really been an amazing co-manager with me, so I wanted to show my appreciation in a card. Now as you know, masculine cards can be difficult. However I was really happy with the way this thank you card turned out. 


I started this card with the Wonderful Paper Packet and cut the Passport card stock at 5X7 and the blue polka dot at 4X6. At the bottom of the Blue polka dot pattern paper I wrapped Forest Green Twine along the bottom of the card. I affixed the twine to the card using Mini Glue Dots


Then I could concentrate on the stamps. I started with the camper which I found on the Close To My Heart Camper Crazy stamp set. I stamped the outline of the camper in the Close To My Heart Black Ink. Then I got to do something that I have not done in years.....COLOR! I used the following ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ MarkersPastel GreenLeaf GreenCerulean Blue LightGrey 7Golden YellowCarmine and Black. Then I could focus on some more stamps on the Camper Crazy stamp set. I used the Tiny trees on this set behind the colorful camper in both Sweet Leaf Ink and Topiary Ink. Now I can focus on the elements. For the clouds and Sunshine I used the Rain of Shine stamp set. For the clouds I used the Crystal Blue Ink. Once everything was stamped and dry I was able to use my Brother Scan N Cut to cut out all the stamps. I could than use the Foam Tape to raise the camper and blue clouds up from the back of the card. The last thing I needed to do was pick out the best sentiment for the card. Since this was a Thank You card for my Assistant Manager, I thought the sentiment off the Camper Crazy stamp set was perfect. I used the Gypsy Ink for the sentiment.

I just love how this masculine card turned out. Make sure to check out the shopping list below. You can get all of these items at my Close To My Heart Site. Don't forget with a $50 qualified purchase you get the stamp of the month set for just $5. Thanks for taking a look at today's project!
