Hoppy Day

This card started out with a scrap of embossed cardstock, which I eventually tossed. It was a funny color, and although I chose these stamps to coordinate with it, I didn't really like the combination when it was ready to put together. I like this better.

The green cardstock was embossed with an embossing folder from The Paper Studio. All of the stamps are from a set from Papertrey Ink. I colored with Copics, added googly eyes and also Star Dust Stickles to the fly's wings.

Thanks

Another card part:) I'm working like crazy with them - and having such a great time!

I found this angled, die-cut piece in with my parts. I wish you could see the texture of it - it's almost like a textured vinyl.  I'm sure I used the "positive" of it years ago. I liked the angle, so I left it. I placed it on a piece of blue cardstock and then scored three parallel lines with my Scor-Pal. The cardbase is white.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Birthday Owl

Years ago, I used a texture plate to emboss a full card-sized piece of this colored cardstock. (I don't know what color to call it!) I cut it in half for this card and added it to an ivory cardbase. Then I chose to use this already-cut scalloped circle, which was done with a Spellbinders die. I cut an ivory circle to fit inside the scallops. I stamped the dotted circle with a Papertrey Ink stamp. The owl is from Inkadinkado. The sentiment is from Hampton Art. The circle is mounted on foam squares.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Ladyslipper Just For You

I've had this die-cut doily for years, too. (Thanks again, Annie!)

I cut a piece of "mottled" pink cardstock for the bottom layer. I sponged pink ink along the top, bottom and right edge. I trimmed down the doily to fit right along the edge of the cardbase. I sponged the pink ink around the edges of the doily except for the left edge. I stamped the ladyslipper, which is from Repeat Impressions, and colored with Copics. Then I stamped the sentiment, which is from Hampton Art.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Christmas Wishes

This colored snowman image was left-over from when I made my January 2013 calendar. (So, I made it in January of 2012, likely, or shortly after that!) 

The image is from Stampin' Up!. I colored it with Copics and added some sparkle with Star Dust Stickles. I matted with black and mounted on foam squares. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches. I cut the bottom layer using one of my Memory Box Stitched Rectangle dies.
