Stinky Love and TS Card Hero Auction

Hello friends!  Happy Friday and I hope that your having a great week so far!  I’ve been having some fun creating a couple of Valentine’s Day cards with a fun/snarky inside greeting.  Plus, I wanted to share something going on starting today for a worth-while cause! (Scroll through post for details!)

So I absolutely fell in love with these STINKIN’ CUTE skunks from Lawn Fawn!  A few weeks ago, I caught a live on FB and enjoyed the crafty products shown with these Lawn Fawn Scent with Love stamps!  I wanted to play with them and decided to order it!  I didn’t have them on hand during the video, but I decided to do my own spin from their cards once mine showed up in the mail.

I didn’t use the heart stencil they had as I decided to use my TE Heart of Hearts Layering Stencil on both of these cards.  I’ve used some clear glitter paste over the first layer without using the largest heart, let it dry and then used some red ink for the second layer.  The red strip was embossed with a 3D heart folder.  I’ve used the Lawn Fawn Scripty Love die that was ink blended faded with the red ink and layered over another die cut sentiment with glitter cardstock.  All of the images were colored with Copic markers and die cut with coordinating dies. I’ve used some black glaze and white gel pens for accents.  I just glued all of the pieces down with the exception of the skunk that was popped up with foam tape.

OK, I had share the inside of the card that the recipient will be receiving as I thought they would get a kick out it. 😆  I’ve used the SSS Sassy Insides stamp set for the inside of both of these cards.  I finished with the Valentine sentiment and the tiny hearts from the Lawn Fawn set.

And so this is also a “spin off” from the second card they did on the live, but I decided not to add another layer to it; instead, I used the large heart within my stencil to center these darling hugging skunks.  I did about the same thing that I did on the card above with different colored inks.  The only thing popped up is the skunks over the sentiment banner that I cut out using the MFT Stamps banner dies.  I think this turned out so cute for a one layer simple card.

And then here’s what the inside of the card looks like with another sentiment from the same SSS stamp set that I’ve used on the above card! 😆  I think this one was so appropriate for using with the skunks!

So I’m thinking that these cards would be something fun for the recipients to receive in the mail.  It’s a great time of year to get something to chuckle about especially if it’s unexpected!  I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing them too!
