Found a Peanut

This weeks featured stamper over on SCS is Denise(Peanutbee), and she has an AWESOME gallery and blog!! She is also super sweet and always leaves me the sweetest comments. I had a super hard time picking a card for the challenge, so I had my pal Jodi(kharmagirl) pick a card for me to do. Does she know me or what!! She picked this card here, and as you can see, I changed a few things. I changed the colors, ribbon, added piercing to the sentiment but didn’t go all the way around the image, and the sentiment. The main image is actually one that I received from Jodi in a ridiculously huge package of stamped images. I believe it is from Inky Antics along with the sentiment. The flower is from the Paper Pretties set Rainy Day Friends. I colored all the images with my SU markers and used an aqua painter to lift some of the color.
Stamps- Rainy Day Friend and Inky Antics

Ink-Black Stazon
Tools-SU markers, aqua painter, white taffeta, silver brads

My second share for today was made for the third challenge at the Paper Pretties release party Thursday night. The challenge was to make a box. I chose to make a 2,5, 7, 10 box using this tutorial from SCS. I started with a Tempting Turquoise base and stamped the dots from the Sassy Circles set by PP. The main image is Flutter By by Paper Pretties and I paper pieced her dress with some paper from Imagine That. The rest of Sophia was colored in with my SU markers. The sentiment was made using several circle punches and the Riveting set from SU. I added some button brads to make it cuter!! The top flap was punched with my Martha Stewart edge punch and I added some white taffeta to hold the box close. I can totally see this as the favors at a little girls birthday party, so cute!!
Well, that is it for now. I have one more card to share, but I will post it later, just incase I decide to finally tackle the GSG survivor challenge, it’s a hard one!! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are all having a happy and safe weekend!!
