WWC157 – Heidi’s “All About Occasions” Challenge

This week at Watercooler Wednesdays Heidi is hosting our all about occasions challenge! And given that today is Valentine’s I decided to share a set of Valentine’s notecards I created with the Simon Says Stamp Foodie Friends stamp set, which came in the recent Valentine’s card kit.

I started by using MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink to stamp each of the sentiments and their coordinating images onto the little white note cards that also came in the kit. There were more cards than sentiments, so I mixed and matched a couple to fill out the last cards without having direct duplicates.

Next I moved on to colouring the images. There was a little trial and error, but in the interest of consistency I tried to use the same colours across the cards. For example the red of the tomatoes is the same red I used on the stripe on the bottle, or the sauce of the pizza.

Once all the colouring was done I needed to turn the panels into cards. I did this by cutting some coordinating brightly coloured card stocks into rectangles just wider than the panels. I then scored them and adhered the panels to them to create side-fold cards.

Finally I matched each card up with an envelope, which also came in the kit. The envelopes mostly matched well, although it would’ve worked even better if the three pink envelopes were blue or green!

I really had a lot of fun creating this set of notecards. I love the punny sentiments and cute images from the stamp set. Some of the colouring is not as good as I would prefer, but that’s what happens when I wing it rather than testing my colours out first!

  2. Hi Charlotte, I love those little note-cards! There is something especially fun about punny sayings, isn’t there? There are some really great sentiments on those cards. One really popped out at me–the “Hey, Hot Stuff” between the chili peppers–since it would be perfect for my hot sauce loving grandsons. Until I saw the note-cards next to your hands I didn’t have an appreciation of their actual size. Very small but they all have a big impact. Nicely coloured and such fun.
