KBD - CH #16 - Valentines/Love Sponsored by Chi Chi Memories

Happy Aloha Friday!
Happy Lunar New Year!

Today over at the Kitty Bee Designs Team blog we're starting a brand new challenge and something new!  Starting in 2014 most of our challenges will now have sponsors from other companies!!  Our gal, Kel, has been hard at work getting some really amazing sponsors for each of our challenges and we're excited. We're still going to have Kitty Bee Design images to use, but you'll get the benefit of the sponsor's prize.


Stop by the Kitty Bee Designs challenge blog to see the details of the challenge/prize and then link up your card or project.  If you're stuck on what to make, check out my teammates adorable inspirations.  They're bound to get your creative juices flowing. 

We have a choice of using the sponsor's image or a KBD image.  Today I have a Kitty Bee project to share. 

This is another card/tag/envelope featuring an adorable bunny squeezing a heart from Kitty Bee Designs.  


So I'll share the project backwards.  First up is the tag itself.  I blew up the image to a bigger size than I normally would.  I used Copic markers to color the image, then I trimmed it out leaving a good enough amount of white space around it.  Stamped an old Happy Valentine's Day sentiment ($1 stamp purchased from Michael's) just below it.  Matted it with kraft cardstock and a strip of red/cream swiss dots designer paper.  The ribbon/seam binding is from my stash.  So you know what the tag looks like here's what it looks like inside the envelope:

The envelope is made out of kraft cardstock and the same red & cream swiss dots dp. I also went a little bit cray-cray with the embellishments.  Added flowers & gems from Recollections; the paper flowers are made with an MME designer paper and punched out with a Noor Designs 8-petal flower die.  Instead of the regular circle window I went with a heart window using two Spellbinder dies.  The regular heart for the kraft cardstock and the scalloped heart for the red/cream dp.  You can't really see it, but I stamped the word "Hugs" in the bottom right-hand corner.  You'll see it in a later photo. 

I stamped the sentiment, "Big squeezes ones that really squish you" from Make It Crafty, inside the window.  This sentiment is so cute and could be used for different occasions.  It just happened to match my project.  (yay)  Here they are side-by-side...

I had so much fun with the backside of the envelope.  I used up all the scraps from the front include the hearts...

The designer paper is from MME (The Station).  I matted it onto the red/cream swiss dots paper and as you can see I used the cut outs including the scalloped heart one and randomly placed them here and there.  Looks so cool with the pretty MME dp.  Added a swirly crystal above the E in the sentiment.  This could actually be another card.  :)  Last I have a couple close ups.

This next one shows the "Hugs" sentiment, I might have to go over it with a darker marker...

Okie dokes, it's now your turn to get creative.  Don't forget to read the rules and then link up.  Looking forward to everyone's project.  Mahalo for stopping by!!  Have a happy Aloha Hawaii Five-O day!! :P
