It’s all about Hearts and Love


I hope that everyone has had a wonderful week. Hopefully the majority of the US is warming up. Oklahoma is supposed to be in the 60s. It’s going to feel like spring.

It’s also Valentine’s Day today and Dilly Beans has a new challenge that will put you in the mood. Megan also has some new digital designs in her shop.


I would like for you to meet Mimi. This digi is “Mimi’sHearts Framed.” This little charmer was colored with Copics and accented with some Spica pens. My cardstock colors are Stampin’ Up!’s Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, and Eggplant Envy.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, R20
Hair, Eyes, & Leaves: YG21, 23, 25, 67
Dress & Eyelids: V000, 01, 05, 06, 09
Hearts, Borders, & Dress Trim: R32, 35, 37, 39, 89
Background: W000, 0, 1, 2, R32

I decided to make my own background paper with some sprays and watercolor paper. At first I did not like it, but it has grown on me. I love it when I do make my own backgrounds. Getting messy is a joy for me!

My recipe for the background paper is Dylusions inks in Cherry Pie and Crushed Grape. After that was dry, I sprayed with some LSG Hottie Patottie Hot Pink. That was not red enough for me, so I covered that in Fired Brick DI. There still needed some movement, so I pulled out a little heart stencil and went to town tracing with a Pitt marker. The added sparkle was completed with Red Wink of Stella brush tip marker.


I finished up the card with some Spellbinder’s classic hearts and scalloped classic hearts dies. The red hearts were given some sparkle with the clear Wink of Stella brush tip marker.

You won't want to miss Megan's Bogo Sale. This is in celebration of her birthday. Happy Birthday Megan! Buy One, Get One, can't beat that!


I hope you join us in our Hearts & Love challenge. Remember to use a Dilly Bean’s digi stamp. When you do enter, please come join our Dilly Bean Facebook group and share your “Hearts & Love” project.
