Can it be that time already?! Absolutely!
Welcome to the first of the There She Goes January release blog hop!!!
If you loved Friendbots, you’re going to love Lovebots. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, Torico has created an adorable set that will have your heart
bursting with joy. This adorable mini set will have your creating cards and gift tags that carry your message of love and friendship to all your special Valentines.
Lovebots is a 4x4 set that includes a total of 7 stamps $10.
Torico's done it again! I am head over heels in love with this little 'bot and his friends! And this month he's bursting with love! Perfect for Valentines Day cards for those men in our lives!
I use the main image from the set to whip this card up. The base was made by sponging and distressing a piece of patterned paper from Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry paper. Then I cut two strips of coordinating paper from October Afternoon's Farm Fresh collection with my small scalloped scissors. I sponged them with some Distress Ink and decorated it with some of PTI's Bakers Twine in red and one of my coverted heart buttons from Michaels! The sentiment was cut out with a Labels Eight Nestie, sponged and tucked behind the horizontal strip. Add a little stitching with some embroidery thread and it's all done!
This was another quick and easy card using the other image from this set. He was too cute not to color up! Again, I colored him up with my reinkers and aquapainter brush. Then I used some more scrap paper from Basic Grey's Nook and Panty line for the vertical stripe down the middle. I used PTI's Half and Half die to create the stripe. Spellbinders Oval Nestie, some more scrap paper from Bo Bunnies Dot on Dot Collection and some Bazzil Basics cardstock created the oval panel. I used a brown pen to draw the line around the edge. The base of the card was made with some left over paper from MME and running my sewing machine around the edge with no thread in it. Last, I added some buttons, ribbon and another sentiment from the new set. Easy peesy!
