I don't normally post on Saturday -- but I had to show you some of the work I made yesterday. I worked on two cards and they turned out fun!
WATERCOLOR MINIS/ AUTUMN LEAF PRINTS: This puppy card is my entry into CC116 on Splitcoast. I got this adorable Penny Black puppy in the mail today (and 6 other stamps -- shhhh- don't tell). I did some retail therapy the other day and it arrived! WOOHOO! I stamped the background with SU "Watercolor Minis" (retiring) using timber brown staz on ink on the chocolate chip card stock. I like the timber brown as it is just a touch darker than the chocolate chip. It is hard to see in this picture because I took this shot at night -- I will probably re-upload in the morning when I have better light. Everything else on the card is pretty self explanatory. The tab I punched and stamped with "hello" from Autumn Leaf Prints (*is sad that it is retiring*) Buttons are adhered using craft glue (fast drying super hold kind).
This second card is another image from Penny Black. I am seriously in love, *heart muchly* the whole Penny Black collection. This time I paired this adorable cow image with some paper by Die Cuts With A View. I love the colors on this paper. The colors used on the card are green galore, bashful blue, rose red, orchid opulence, pale plum. It is hard to see (I took the picture late at night) -- They are gorgeous. I watercolored in the flowers in the cows hooves to match the paper. The layout was totally "inkspired" by WAXYO -- Meg has this most wonderful gallery and this layout was no exception. I found this ribbon and thought it matched perfectly. I used my oval punch to create the tag that says SMILE! Oh and SMILE is stamped using my Karen Foster Snap Stamps Small Casual set. I added stickles to the flowers to make them sparkle (well, that and I am addicted to playing with stickles). All in all -- a simple, cute card!!! Tell me what you think?
I am nearing 85K page loads on my site. I think that for my 100K page load I am going to have to give some cool stuff away, so keep tuned in to see when that will be. Oh and be sure to leave me some blog love.
