Big Hugs

Hi everyone,

A new Monday means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. It's almost Valentine's Day and therefor this week's the theme is 'Love Letters'. Will you make a card with heart? Create a journal entry about someone (or something) you love? Perhaps use vintage postage as your latest inspiration… whatever inspires you – we can’t wait to see your love letters!
 

This card I made for Patricia, a dear friend of mine who I met in blogland. A little while ago, it was her birthday. So it's not a Valentine's card but a birthday card. She is such a sweetheart!



I started with the collaging pieces of paper from the Printery Paper Pad  collection. And colored each area I in red or pink with my Gelatos.



It was not quite how imagined it. I wanted the background color more intense, so I painted painted over them. To get more dimension and creating shading effects I used the Gelatos and the Big Pens.



For the design, I used the exclusive Big Hugs die from Simon Says Stamp. Before I cut it out I covered it with Kelly Purkey's Red Chevron Washi Tape. I'm still absolutely in love the Label Letters! Wink (as the theme is love letters...)

  10. I love the bold reds. That's my favorite color! And I love how you did the "Hugs" word. At first look, it appears to be an aged metal. Very, very cool!

  13. Absolutely amazing collaged background and I always love your use of vibrant colors. The other thing I admire is that so often you are creating art as gifts for your friends and loved ones. That is wonderful that you are spreading the creative joy with so many of us. You're not only brilliant, but you're also generous and that's a great thing to see!

  20. Wow Sandra! This is just a fabulous birthday card. Incredible dimensionality (is that a word?)! Anyway, I adore the colors and that chevrons. The die cut Hugs with the label letters (I just got some of these ... how cool!) are such a wonderful way to share a sentiment. Love it! -- Mary Elizabeth
