Altered Playing Cards - Valentines - Set 2

  Love all the blueprint stamps from Stampers Anonymous and Tim Holtz! You either hate them or love them! This is the mini Valentine set.

  I stamped the images on the background paper, then I stamped them again on fairly heavy card stock. Used my Distress Markers to colour; cut them out, and then attached them with foam adhesive on top of stamped image on the background paper. 

  Added some doodling around the edges, tissue tape at the top, drywall tape under the Tim Holt Small Talk stickers, and heart stickers at the bottom. Stickles Pink Taffeta applied overtop of images for sparkle and crunch.

Here they are individually:

**** I have been asked what adhesive do I use to adhere the paper to the playing cards, as the cards are plastic coated.

 I use my trusty ATG: 
  I run strips down the sides, except a corner where I will tear off the paper to show the number. Place the card with the adhesive to the wrong side of the paper, and then trim the card. Tear the corner to expose the number. I take a corner rounder punch to trim the 3 corners of the card, or sometimes I use my small scissors to trip around the rounded corners.

Entering in:

  Love The Olympics! The only time I watch sports (except for golf!). Going to try and watch on my iPad while I get inky! GO CANADA GO!

Thanks for stopping by!
i made it myself!

Do you have to sand the playing cards first. Or what adhesive do you use to get the papers to stick to the cards. Your cards are beautiful and have really inspired me to do some.
