Hi Peeps...Valentine is over!! but isnt quite sad when you use your valentine stamps series only during this season? Well i have a simple solution like i mentioned in the previous post. I will be sharing with you how to use you valentine stamp for another purpose (in this time i will use mimi and miles clear stamp set from penny black for inspiration). I have 6 inspiration projects in total but just a reminder that all of this will be simple and clean look cards :P.So stay tune :).
So..this will be the very first card! :)

I used mimi for for thanks card. honestly..you can actually use it for easter event as well..this cutie girl goes well for that even that hold every year..so dont pack your stamp first! :)

Instructions :
I stamped mimi on white cardstock and coloured it with various prismacolour pencils.
For the hair i used golden rod,chocolate and dark brown, Heart shape : jasmine,Bunny ear : caran d 'ache pencil rose pink, Clothes : rose pink,olive green and jasmine. Applied stickles for the finishing touch. cut out once it is dried

Stamped several cupcakes that available in the set with colorbox ink frosted white. Trace the kraft paper line with white gel pen. Cut a strip of pattern paper from my littleshoes box and affix it on top of the kraft papers. stamps some sentiments and flower shape from Penny Black Clear stamp sentiment 30-025 used versafine vintage sephia. Tied few round of pink twine on the card and create a bow. paste the mimi on the left side of the card. Voila you are done!! :)
