January Release with Foodie Valentines

Happy New Year TCP Friends!  It’s Christine here today kicking off 2024 with lots of love.  I think it’s the best kind of theme for a new year, and a brand new release that is full of adorable for January. 

Foodie Valentine Postage Cards Tomato and Mushrooms

 I’m starting with a set of mini Valentine cards in a postage stamp shape that are perfect for tucking in to a lunch, school Valentine’s or surprising your child or sweetie with a little note at any time of year.  I have 5 cuties to show you using the brand new Food of Love Digi set.  Oh my WORD, it’s just so darn cute!  Little pairs of food buddies and punny sentiments that have to make you smile.  

Mushrooms Valentine

We’ll start with this adorable little mushrooms!  I coloured all of the images with Copics, and finished off the detailing and blending with coloured pencils.  
Because I wanted to make the images coordinate like a set, I ink blended a little soft blue around the edges of each little card as a nice backdrop, then I used a retired TCP postage themed die to cut out the shaped cards.  

Each card is stamped with a postage mark from a retired TCP polymer set, and a coordinating heart “stamp”.

Each little card is then completed by cutting a folded inside just smaller than the postage die, and the coordinating sentiment from that pair.  I also created coordinating envelopes in the same theme, with blue patterned paper (cut 5”x 5”).  

Tomato Card

Here’s the sweet tomatoes.  You can also see the front of the envelope has a smaller rectangle postage die to address with a coordinating heart stamp.  I love those sweet matching details. 

Tomato Sentiment inside

Love you...right down tomatoes!  
Pizza postage card

Next, you stole a pizza my heart!  For this savory pairing I added little pieces of cheese with a white gel pen.

YUM, pepperoni!

I also added a heart on the outside of the mini envelope where you can close it.  

Lime card

This one might be my personal favourite because I just love limes, and they were really fun to colour wiht the addition of highlights on the lime with gel pen.

I AM so glad you’re mine :)  

And finally it’s a berry cute pair...

Blueberry and raspberries are perfect together.

Because you are berry special.  Such a delight to create these cuties!    I’m including a peek at the whole set.  Just look at the cute shadows you can use too!  Thanks for joining me today!
