Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge: Valentine’s or Love Cards for Kids

Happy New Year!  It’s the first Saturday of 2015 and time for a Send a Smile 4 Kids Card Challenge!  We have continued our tradition of having great sponsors who have generously offered prizes to our randomly chosen winners.  They are:

1) DRS Designs: Offering a prize of $10.00 Gift Certificate to Random Winner

2) Doodle Pantry: Offering a prize of $10.00 Gift Certificate to Random Winner

3) Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet: Offering a prize of $6.00 Gift Certificate to Random Winner

Now, how about some inspiration!

My first card uses DRS Designs “Allie & Callie“.  I colored them with Copic Markers and used Glitz’s “Felicity” 6 x 6 paper pack.  Sentiment is Paper Smooches as is the “love” die.

Monkey Love-wm

My second card uses a digital image from Doodle Pantry called, “Heart Candy Ants”.  I brought the image into Photoshop Elements and inserted the sentiment into the heart.  This image is full of great sentiments for Love and Valentines cards and is perfect for this challenge.  I used Copic Markers and Lily Bee’s “Head Over Heels” 6 x 6 collection then finished it off with some pearls and chipboard arrows painted with white.

The last card today uses Stitchy Bear Digital Designs “BBKakes, Balloon Boy I” which I colored with Copic’s and used recollections ticket embellishments and a die cut heart spray painted with some cool new Liquitex spray paints from Blick Arts.  So cool and great coverage.  Perfect for all types of paper crafting projects.

  2. Well, our Thrice As Nice challenge was to use three patterned papers, and while your balloon card doesn’t fit that requirement, your ant card does. That ant is adorable.

    Thanks for joining us at Shopping Our Stash!
