Tote-ally Tess: Sending a Little Love


I just love this Tote-ally Tess stamp. I guess I never got on the Stamping Bella kick so this is all so new and exciting to me! Since this is a Valentine’s day card, I stuck with the classic (in my mind) Valentine colors–pink, red, and chocolate. Speaking of chocolate, I just had a great idea!! Tess could be holding a chocolate, or a chocolate heart box! I’ll get on that but for now, I’ll tell you about this card.

The base is Kraft card stock, layered with Chocolate Chip Designer Series Paper in the polka dot pattern. I stamped Tess onto whisper white card stock in Chocolate chip ink and colored her in with my Stampin Up Markers. The heart she’s holding was made with the Small Heart Punch and Real Red card stock. I attached it with a Stampin Dimensional. Next to her, I stamped the “love you much” from Well Scripted in Real Red ink.

I layered the stamped image on Pink Pirouette card stock and adhered it to the Chocolate Chip DSP with Stampin Dimensionals. Then, I tied some 5/8″ Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon around the DSP and attached that to the Kraft base with Stampin Dimensionals again for a layered effect.

Tote-ally Tess Made you a Cupcake


Ever since I saw the stamp set Tote-ally Tess, I knew I was going to have her holding a cupcake! The set comes with stamping stuff, which is cute, but I hope they come out with other kinds of accessories for her too!

The card base is Pale Plum. I layered Shades of Spring DSP on to Basic Black card stock to make it pop more. Tess is stamped with Memento Black ink on white card stock. I colored her in with Copic Markers. The cupcake is from Crazy for Cupcakes, also colored with Copic Markers and popped up with a Stampin Dimensional.

The sentiment is from Tote-ally Tess stamp set, which I stamped in Memento Black ink on Whisper White card stock. Again, I layered it with Basic Black and attached it to the base with Dimensionals.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! Hope 2010 is going to be a good year for my family and yours!
