Luigi


Happy Valentine's day. Love comes in many forms. It doesn't just have to be from a spouse or significant other. It could come from your kids, extended family, best friends and even those four legged fur balls that we love so much. Whoever it may be, I hope that you are surrounded by love today. This is the card that I made to give to my hubby. Luigi is a High Hopes stamp and he just tugs at my heart. The mitts and pizza were cut out and raised with a dimensional. I also paper pieced the brim of the hat and the pants. I thought that the pattern paper looked like those crazy pant prints that chefs love to wear. I kept the colors palette dark and the embellishments simple since I was giving it to a guy. I do have a quick shopping question for y'all. If I'm at Michael's or Hobby Lobby and I'm looking for the equivalent of Crystal Effects, where would I look for it and what would it be called? Anyone, anyone, Bueller, Bueller?? Thank you in advance for answering my question. Enjoy the rest of your day. Each some chocolate for me!!!!

You don't know me but I look at your blog daily and love it. You asked in today's post about crystal effects ... look for glossy accents by Ranger. It will be located in the area where the adhesives are. Hope this helps.

Such a cute card! I love this guy too. I also use Glossy Accents by Ranger. In Michaels, I believe it's in the same area as the Tim Holtz stuff. Happy shopping!

I see you already have the answer. Good luck finding it and I'm glad you liked the card Kim! Sure hope the little letters were still on the card when it arrived.

So cute, Kim! Love how you added the pen to his boots, and hat. And that glue is what I've used. It looks like the bottle just like Crystal effects same size and everything.
