Im Back! Plus Valentines Day Card

Hello fellow crafters! I am so sorry that its been so long. I have been trying to accomplish a personal new years resolution and in doing so I have been putting my love for crafting aside, but no more! I know that can accomplish both my new years resolution and share my love for crafting in the bloggy world:)

So heres my card I would like to share, with all of you. Its yet another Dr. Who inspired card. My boyfriend and I are so into the BBC show called Dr. Who:) I wanted to make him a special Valentines Day card, so naturally it was going to be a Dr. Who releated:)


The cute little white marshmallow creature is called an Adipose. I hand drew it, cut it up and embossed it with the "Love Language" embossing folder from Cuttlebug. I added a bow to make the Adipose into a girl:) The bow is from Peachy Keens January 2013 Monthly Release. For the layout of the card I used the card sketch from Funn Flair stamp's.

I also used Tim Holtz Weathered Wood to ink the edges of the Adipose. I used Martha Stewarts Doily Lace punch and Thistle and Platinum Stickles on the card.

Of course I had to put this cutie on an action wobble:)lol. The heart is a die cut from from My Creative Time's 100-Sweetness Stamp Set, and the sentiment is also from the same stamp set.


The heart shape balloons are  from Peachy Keen's January 2013 Monthly Release. The hearts were actually lollipops but I cut them and added some Glossy accents, and twine from my stash to make it into balloons. The Happy Valentines Day sentiment is also from the same Peachy Keen stamp set. 

The papers I used for my card are form my stash. The polk a dot paper is from My Minds Eye and the Heart shaped paper is from Joanns (got about two years ago).
