The images in the Wildly Happy stamp set are just so cute. I love the parent and child cuddling together. I colored the foxes using the Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends and the Color Lifter. The background is the Buffalo Check background stamp in Merry Merlot on Crumb Cake with lines of Cajun Craze added. I love how the Buffalo Check can be easily changed into a plaid.
I’m playing along with the Global Design Project for this card. #GDP198
This is the second time I’ve used Timeless Textures and I don’t think I’ve used Thankful Thoughts much either. I’m horrible at actually sending thank you cards and I like clean lines so maybe that’s why neither got much use. 🙂
I colored the pearls with the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends and you can’t really see it but the background is embossed with the Subtles Embossing Folder.
I’m joining two challenges today, PCC338 over at PaperCraftCrew.com and the FabFri164 color challenge over at FabFridayStampinChallenge.blogspot.com.
I think the Hedgehugs set is just so cute but I didn’t even notice the mushrooms until I made this card for today. I colored in the bird image and the flowers using the Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Real Red, and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers. The rhinestones were colored with the Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Marker but it may be hard to see the color.
I’m trying to do more scrapbook layouts so today I’m playing along with the Let’s Scrap challenge. I had a minor issue with this layout because I put one piece of Designer Series Paper on upside down, so it’s not exactly like the sketch. I used my Stamparatus and applied the ink with sponge daubers and stamped twice to get a clean & bold image for the pennant stamp.
Here’s the sketch I was following:
Here is what it was supposed to look like but then things would be upside down. 🙂
Over the weekend we celebrated Rachel Tessman’s 50th birthday and I made this card for her. I have a woefully small selection of current “Happy Birthday” sentiments that fit in this banner. For the flower, I used a sponge dauber to apply the ink and my Stamparatus to stamp it twice.
I’ve had a hard time finding my mojo lately and so I really needed a sketch. This one appealed to me because it called to my designer series paper which makes cardmaking so much easier. How beautiful is that paper! I had an issue putting it on the Soft Suede layer straight so out comes the trimmer and a new Soft Suede layer. If it wasn’t for the dimensionals under the Blackberry Bliss pattern, you may not have known I had an issue putting it together straight. 🙂
I used the Stamparatus to do the sentiment so I could emboss it twice. I stamped it with Versamark ink, sprinkled with copper embossing powder, and heat set. Then I stamped it again with Versamark ink, sprinkled it with copper embossing powder, and heat set! Three times is even smoother but I was late with this post already. 🙂
