Happy World Heart Day!!

"Love Bug Lyndsey Buggmee" provided by Lacy Sunshine

This is in celebration of World Heart Day! I chose this image from a Lacy Sunshine series by  Heather Valentin. She has done a series of what she calls "buggmees", and I find them quirky and quite appealing!  This one is "Love Bug Lyndsey Buggmee".  I have also collected "Sue Shu Fly Buggmee" [you can click on the link to see what I did with this one] and "Tussa Milkweed Tussock Caterpillar Buggmee".  They amuse me greatly - what can I say.

613 Ave C is celebrating World Heart Day by challenging you to use a heart in your project.  You can see the very creative examples by the designers here which will give you sooo many ideas!  You may enter up to three projects before the deadline 10/4. - an easy project, let's see what you come up with!
[Note: specific information on supplies and sources will be found below under “Supplies”.]
  • An A2 card with a left fold was prepared with a background of 3 layered DPs.
  • For the main image I used a "Paper Sculpting Technique" that consists of:  printing the focal image three times, coloring with Copics, fussy cutting different layers, sculpting the individual pieces [dry embossing each individual piece from the back using a large ball tool] and layering with foam tape to maintain the dimension. 
  • Three hearts were punched from some of the DP used on the front.  They were sculpted and mounted with foam tape.
This card should be eligible for the following 
Through the Craft Room Door – ATG
Crafting from the Heart #37 – ATG
Papertake Weekly – Oh so Cute

EMBELLISHMENTS: punch used for the hearts
INKS: the images were printed on a Canon PIXMA printer & colored with Copics:

  7. This is such a super cute card! Thanks so much for playing along with us for Anything Goes week over on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

  8. Hi Ginny..Even though I could not visit you as often, I am very grateful for your wonderful and sweet comment on my projects. Your comments make me smile cause I know that you didn't just look but you examined every detail of my work. That is awesome for me! Now, I can't deny all those colors outside of the lines anymore...LOL. Just to let you know that I appreciate you a lot and even though we haven't met., I can sense you have a wonderful sense of humor and I love that! I am glad enjoyed my latest card project for our Challenge at 613 Avenue Create. Sometimes, I want to incorporate lots of DP's but at times, I want it just embossed and with little colors. It really depends on what God impressed upon my heart at the moment of creating. Anyway, I also love the coloring of the image in this Blog post and how you pop-up the image. I know how much coloring is needed when we layer those images and you did a superb job. God bless, till next time!
