Lean On Me

Hello everyone!! If you didn't already know, I was chosen by Melanie Muenchinger to be her guest designer for this past release. Her new set Cuddles and Hugs is by far one of my favorite sets of hers. The sentiments and images are so perfect and fun to work with. Not only does she design them, but she makes up a tip sheet for each set so that you can SEE all the possibilities with them. She has them linked on her blog in the sidebar if you wanna go check it out AFTER you read my post of course!! This was one of the samples that I made for her to choose from for the release. I love this super cute image of these two lions cuddling. I stamped it twice and colored them both first with my SU markers and cut out just the top lion on the second one. I then glued it back down to the main panel just to give it a tiny bit of dimension. The ribbon is from a share that I did with the super FABULOUS Jody Morrow(texasjodylynn) and matched my Really Rust card stock and this super pretty dp from the Fall Flowers pack by SU. The brads are So Saffron from the Rich Regals brads by SU. I loved the sentiment on this one, made me wanna sing and dance-trust me when I say you are happy you missed it!! To highlight the sentiment, I added a row of piercing just below it and also in the corners of the main image. Of course I had to have a spiral clip with some white taffeta on it, what can I say, it's a sickness!! The scallops were made with my corner rounder. This card is 3x6, an awesome size for this long image. So in closing, if you haven't bought this set, what you waiting for!! Trust me, you will LOVE IT!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
