KLM Digital Designs - Jan. Release #2 and #3

Here is another cute stamp from the KLM Digital Designs January release. She's a cute little rat (who would think I'd say "cute" and "rat" in the same breath?!). I printed the image, then colored it with pencils, then paper pieced the large heart and the little heart on her tail.

The cardstock is SU kraft and the printed paper is Basic Grey Two Scoops, from a 6x6 pad.

I stamped the sentiment (Hampton Art) onto the large heart with timber brown Staz-On. The other little sentiments are Close To My Heart. This card is also for 365 Cards Day 311, which is to replace a word with an image. You can see how I did that below. Well, ok, it's a cheat as the stamp did it for me!

I cut the circles with Nestie dies and the little "I Love You" heart, I stamped and then trimmed out with scissors. I've had these little "country" stamps for a long time, but I still like them. I give them love every Valentine's Day!

This card is also for the Practical Scrappers sketch that was posted on Dec. 25th. I took some liberties with the sketch, but...don't I always?!

This is another KLM Digital Designs January release - a cute angel (or Cupid?). I printed the image and then colored it with pencils and markers. I then sponged some Tim Holtz old paper distress ink around the edges to make it look "old." I also added some punched hearts for some dimension.

The cardstock is Bazzill and the printed paper is Cosmo Cricket from a kit I purchased on QVC a few years ago, and you guessed it, never used! I distressed the edges a bit to go with the vintage feel.

I used the Truly Scrumptious sketch for inspiration. I was also to use vellum, so I added little vellum hearts. The greeting is Stampin' Up - an old foam stamp that was probably one of the first sets I ever purchased from them! So, it's old!

That yummy crochet flower was made by my mother-in-law! God love her, she's made me 100's of these, in all sizes and colors. I may have to start sharing them with friends. The button is from Buttons Galore. I love the look of the twine with the button and flower. Very vintage.
