Wolf and Fox EOS Valentine

I posted a few days ago a valentines card which included an EOS lip balm for my son’s teachers, which you can find HERE.   I mentioned on that post I designed two more for my boys.  Well here they are.

wolf & fox EOS Valentine ~ Catscrapbooking.com

I really love these two little critters.  I cut theses with my Silhouette and added a 1.5 inch circle to the design where the nose of the fox and wolf would be. Each of the critters has seven layers so I had to line up the 1.5  inch circle in the exact same place on each of the layers. I decided since I was giving this to my son and husband it would design this one with just the EOS and not including the packaging.  I added the double heart and stamped it using Holiday Tags stamp set 1560.  As my son will say “thats so cute”.

Happy Crafting!

Valentines using EOS

Have you discovered the cute egg shaped lip balms called EOS?  I have been seeing them everywhere and there are a lot of knock offs too.   I purchased one for my son as I thought it would be easy for him to use and flavored.  It was a hit so I was then hooked.  Then I saw where people were designing cute gifts using these little eggs.  There are a bunch on Pinterest for Christmas gifts and I have been seeing some for Valentines.  So I decided this would be the perfect valentines gift for my son’s teachers.

Fox EOS Valentine ~ Catscrapbooking.comI just love foxes, so I knew this design would be prefect. This with a Silhouette image which I modified.  I added an oval to the heart to accommodate the EOS.  Since I was giving this as a gift to someone I did not want to open the package like most people do, so instead of using a 1.5 inch circle, I used an oval which was 1.982 inches wide and 2.287 inches tall.  This worked out great!  I used Close to My Heart cardstock ~ White Daisy, Ruby, Goldfish and Black to make the fox and heart.  I did cut a second heart which does not have the oval for the back piece. The bow was cut from some scraps of paper I had.  Isn’t this just so adorable??? Sorry I think it is stinking cute and I hope his teachers will think it is cute too.  Stay tuned for a couple more EOS as I designed one for each of my boys and will post in a couple of days.

Happy Crafting!

January 2013 - Valentine's day 2 - Version 2

For this card I took a piece of cream cardstock 8 1/2″ by 5 1/2″.  I then scored it at 2 1/8″  from each end.  I used my 2″ scallop punch to create the window in the card.  I stamped one of the rose images so it would show through the window.  I used my Copic markers to color in the rose.  I used blush ink on a dauber to accent the scalloped edge.  Using my Silhouette I created a  2 1/4 ” circle and did an off set on the inside about 1/8″ so it would result in a ring which was cut on slate card stock.   For the bottom strip I used the new Slate Polka-Dot Washi Tape (Z1817) which is one of the new items from the Spring/Summer Idea book.  I also used blush card stock 1″ by 4 1/4″ and random stamped the small rose stamp with Slate ink.  I cut the 3″ by .8″ oval using my Silhouette on colonial white card stock and stamped the “happy valentine’s day” in Slate ink.  I inked the oval edge in blush and attached it only tho the left side of the card.
