Happy Singles Awareness Day!

Valentine’s Day is my least favorite holiday. Every year when it rolls around I groan a little. I don’t have any particular reason on why I do not like it. It does bring a smirk on my face when I can create sarcastic cards for it though. Joy Clair has a new stamp set that is perfect for all the folks out there who don’t like cupid and his holiday. It is perfectly title “#Single”. I created this card using the new stamp set:

How to Create “Happy Singles Awareness Day!” Card

Tim Holtz Distress Oxide is how I created the background. When working with water based pigments it is important to keep the color theory in mind. Basically you want to keep all your red undertone colors(warms) together and blue undertone colors (cools) together. If you mix them you will get mud. That is okay if it is the look you are going for, but if not don’t mix things like green and red. The color that is the exception to this rule is purple. The only colors you can mix purple with are red OR blue. If you mix it with any other color you will get mud for this card I stuck with pink, red and purple (on the bottom).

This card has a square cut out that was created to use as a shaker. It also looks cute with an image in the box. I stamped the hearts and colored them in. I finished them off with a little clear glaze by Nuvo and Dew Drops.

After the sentiment had been stamped on the bottom, three coordinating ones were stamped along the bottom and finished off with the Nuvo Clear Glaze.

If the card front was not enough to make the recipient giggle the inside is sure to do so.

  4. Super set that I need for my single friends as they would love the snarky sentiments. Love your talent!


  5. I LOVE THIS!!!!!!! It’s sassy but not nasty. Nice. I am not thrilled with Valentines Day, either. It feels so forced!!!!!!!!! I’m a bit rebellious, so I think: No one is going to tell me to be all lovey dovey on a certain day. Luckily my husband feels the same way 🙂


  6. These snarky sentiments are fab in this set. I’ve never celebrated Valentine’s Day in my 40 odd years. Thanks for sharing this inspiration with these fun products.
