Peachy Keen Stamps Valentine Cards

Today is my first solo post for Peachy Keen Stamps.  The new year is cruising along and it is time to start thinking about Valentines.  My first card uses the new January Release set.  I stamped the candies onto Cryogen metallic text weight paper and then colored the entire thing with my black Copic marker.  I carefully trimmed each candy out and then using an embossing tool, dry embossed the wrappers so they bow up around the candies.  I stamped the candies again onto Cryogen metallic card stock and trimmed just the candy portion out.  I colored them and then added Glossy Accents to give them a yummy shine.

I added this fun saying which is also part of the new January Release.  I used card stock from K&Company, the heart embellishment is Cheery Lynn Designs.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

For my next card, I have used this adorable stamp set called Valentine Cupids.  Isn't he a happy little guy!  I stamped him onto Cryogen metallic paper and then added the hearts around him.
Copics used:
Mouse - E41, E42, E43, R20, R21
Bow - E33
Hearts - R32, R35, R39
Wings - Clear Gelly Roll
I combined two of the sayings along with the arrow to create my sentiment.

The paper is from the Bo Bunny Love Letters Collection; the flourish and flowers are from Cheery Lynn Designs.  Finished size is 5.5" square.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out this week's 3D Bears challenge.

Love both your cards! Yes it is time for Valentine's day! I like the glossy candies; very effective for a realistic look. Also the 'chocolate' heart in the center of the die is perfect! The little mouse is sure cuter than the real thing!! Love the flowers on your flourish! The color of the DP is unusual for Valentine's day and I like that!!

Well the first one is so realistic you feel you could just snatch the chocs right off the card!! The second card is dead cute with the Cupid Mouse surrounded with hearts! Lovely DP sets it all off a treat. Great job on both cards Sandy! xxx
