Wee & Whimsical Wednesday

I've run into a few local readers lately, and I just have to say, it is so nice when you tell me who you are! I love knowing that I'm not sitting here talking to myself like a mad-before-her-time woman. And I promised one of you the other day that I was going to get back into the swing of things - so here, for your viewing pleasure (hee hee) is the first official Wee & Whimsical Wednesday of 2011. Whoo hoo!

I opted to make a vintage-feel Valentine for today's post. I stamped the Itty Bitty Chintz heart, the Cupcake with Sprinkles and the Coffee To Go Lockhart images onto Inchie, Inchie + and Twinchie squares (respectively, all from Inchie Arts. I used Dark Cream for each of these, lending a great continuity with the images. For further continuity, I used the same colored pencils for all three images.

Here's a closer look:

For further detail, I used Liquid Applique for the whipped cream on the coffee, and Rock Candy Distress stickles for the sprinkles on the cupcake. Each of the squares were edged with the Vintage Tea Dye Duo from Papertrey ink. All squares from Inchie Arts are made from artist-quality matboard, so you can really put any kind of medium on them without having to worry about them breaking down. They're tough in a beautiful way!

Valentine's Day is sneaking up on us quickly, so why not pull out your Inchie Arts squares and Lockhart stamps and create something beautiful? Your Valentine will be sure to appreciate your thoughtfulness! :)

Have a great day & be well.

Jenn! This card is great. I can totally see it in a hometown coffee shop... framed. Very charming and comforting at the same time. :)
