Butter and Jam, please...

OMGosh... I have to say... I LOVE this card!! LOL Not so much for the design or anything... but simply because of the toaster in checked pattern!!! HA I did this card for an Inspiration Challenge that Gina K posted over on Stamp TV. She showed us a bag with a checked pattern on it and asked us to make a card based on the inspiration we got from it I love checks and went with the paper to do my card. I used Rupa Shevde's, "Sung from the Heart" set for the toaster and sentiment. I paper pieced the checked pattern on the toaster and used my Sakura Glitter pens to color in the heart on the bread and the handle of the toaster. I also used the black gel Sakura pen for the slit in the toaster and the heat indicator. For my background I used my Cuttlebug Heart Blocks embossing folder. My heart was cut using my scalloped heart Nestabilities and I used it to act as a stencil to add color to the inside of the heart. I actually cut it out twice and used one to cover it and add color around the outside of the heart as well. This way, I still have my small ivory border around the heart... just enough to separate the color on each side. I think I will add this to my stash of cards I have for Valentines that I am planning to put in my Card Box I created using Gina's wonderful video example and give to my daughter's teacher. You really should stop over to Stamp TV. There is so much inspiration and examples there that you would be hard pressed to lose your mojo after seeing all it has to offer. Have a great day and... stay warm.. hee hee. *smile* Signature
