Sent With Love-Cuckoo Clock

Hello everyone. I'm back, rested and ready to create...I think. Anyway, today I have a Valentine's Day card to share. All supplies are from Gina K Designs, the Stamp TV kit, called Sent with Love. To learn more about this kit, click HERE. I am head over heals in love with the images from this sweet set, so be prepared to see cards featuring them in the next week or so. If you've never purchased a Stamp TV kit from Gina K, you're really missing out. They are such a great get loads of delicious card stock, yards and yards of yummy ribbon, a lil' bag of brads and/or eyelets and some kits even have coordinating patterned papers. Everything comes in a nifty plastic storage box so all your goodies stay together. Okay, on to the card...

I made this one for Gina's color challenge. You can see details for that HERE. I decided to use the darling little cuckoo clock image to make a gatefold card.

 Cute image, right? I know! I was excited to discover that the colors in Basic Grey's Curio line, coordinated with the colors in the challenge. I stamped the image onto the paper, so I could do some paper piecing. The rest of the image is colored with Copic markers and I lightly sponged the focal, while still in the die, using Antique Linen Distress ink by Tim Holtz. I used oval Nesties to die cut the focal piece. And of course, I had to decorate the inside too...

The 'cuckoo for you' sentiment is one of the many cute phrases from the Stamp TV kit. The 'Happy Valentine's Day' stamp is from Michael's dollar bin. You may notice the sweet little birdie in the lower right corner of the card. That little guy is from this stamp set HERE. The border punch is from Stampin Up!, the bitty hearts are from a punch I've had for years and I used inks from CTMH.

Thank you for visting with me today! I appreciate it!

Absolutely fabulous, Barb! I love all the attention to detail in this. The papers are so pretty and that you "finish' the inside makes it even more special.

I love your blog look, too!
