That’s Amore!



Hi!    Sorry, I’ve been missing in action for the past week or so – I was soooo far behind in my Christmas preparations, that I just had to take a break.    But, I’m back, refreshed and ready to go!!    😀

And, now trying to get ready for that big day in February.    As soon as I saw this guy from High Hopes, I knew he would be perfect for a Valentine – It’s Luigi!     Hopefully I’m not showing my age by using a line from this song on the card, but I thought it was so perfect for Luigi …



Of course, the entire time I was working on this card – I was, unfortunately, singing this song!   Good thing I have a separate area in the house for my stamping!  

Luigi is colored with Copics, cut out and attached with dimensionals.  I used a classic Italian restaurant tablecloth design of red and white checks for the background by Karen Foster – Picnic Cloth.  I also added some Diamond Glaze to the pizza to make it look a little more authentic.   

 This stamp from High Hopes is currently out of stock at 7 Kids, but on order and should be arriving soon!   I will definitely let you know when he’s back in stock.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday with family and friends. 


Copics Used:   E000, 00, 01, 07, 08, 09, 11, 30, 31, 33, 37, 41, 42, 44, 47, 95; R00, 20, 30; YR20, 31; W0, 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8;  N1, 3, 5; C5, 7, 10; T1, 3, 5
