Coffee and Candy

For this week's challenge at QKR Stampede I made a card using a QKR digi images and a Eureka sentiment (Q-digi6501-toothfairy and ES-digi28605 Happy Valentine's Day) that you can find at Stamponit.
I repurposed the Toothfairy stamp, giving her the fun task of delivering candy hearts for Valentine's Day. Colored her with Spectrum Noir and a white gel pen, fussy-cut the sweet image and then cut around the hands with an Exacto blade. After adhering the Toothfairy to the corner of the card, I carefully lifted the hands, then tucked a Jolee candy heart sticker inside. The sentiment on the front is a freebie from Desert Diva. You can find it HERE. For the inside sentiment, I covered the three hearts on the Eureka digi with another candy heart sticker. So fun.

I've had this wonderful Printworks wood mount stamp for several decades and have always loved how it looks when embossed in silver or gold. I wanted to use a different color scheme this time and really like this navy, red and kraft brown combination. The die is from Stampin' Up and the inside sentiment is from Eureka (ES-digi28605 Happy Valentine's Day)  Am entering this into several challenges including AZ scrapbooking Mood board [inspired by the red, word LOVE and also the metallic gold hardware on the door.]

This is my third card as a Guest Design Team member at the Colour Crazy Challenge. One thing I love about their challenge is that it requires that the images used are not pre-colored. Since I love to color… this is a perfect fit for me. I colored an image from Polkadoodles- named "Barista Coffee Cake Digi" on my card with Spectrum Noir markers and a white gel pen.  Found this yummy brownie scrapbook paper at JoAnne's a few months ago and it worked perfectly for this card.  The sentiments on vellum is computer generated. The sentiment on the inside of the card is a freebie from Desert Diva. You can find it HERE. I also added several of my puffy heart stickers because I'll be giving this card to my favorite barista at a local coffee shop.
