Due to unforeseen circumstances, I wasn't able to get a card made with the Let's Picnic set but I do have a couple of samples left from last release that I haven't shown here yet!! The first is from the Who's That Girl set, Girls Day In. For my card, I stamped the bottle image on three different pieces of Urban Oasis DSP. I then stamped the words and used a copic to color in the stopper. I added them to small square panels that were punched out with my SU punches. The colors on this card are Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze. All the ribbons are from the Valet Ribbon Originals, and the brads are from SU. My Spiral clips came from AC Moore online.
For this next card, I used the new Snuggle Bunnies set. It is part of the MFT Presents line and was illustrated by Stephanie Fizer. I stamped my bunnies on an MFT Perfect Panel and then colored them in with my Copics. I then layered them with Regal Rose and Tempting Turquoise. I used DP from the Georgia Peach and Pink Flamingo DSP. I added a bunch of piercing , some large silver SU brads, and a spiral clip with Regal Rose ribbon on it. I believe this sketch was one on SCS, but it has been awhile since I made this one!! The sentiment was punched out with my SU punches. To make the tails fluffy, I used some liquid applique. I let it dry overnight before heating so that it would be nice and even instead of lumpy and bumpy...thanks Jody, you are a genius!!
Well, that is it for me now!! Thanks for stopping by, now get shopping!!

I Know, I Know...

The other day my Dad came into my room and asked if I could make him a graduation card for my cousin Drew who is graduating from High School tonight. I of course said yes, but knew it wasn't going to be easy. I swear, for some reason I struggle so hard with Graduation cards. I usually feel forced to use the school colors and I NEVER have an image that will work. I have never cared much for any of the Grad. sets that SU has come out with, so I have never invested in one, and the only other set that I had that had any sort of grad themed stamps in it, I sold. So, I decided to do some searching last night and I came across a card using this super cute Digital Stamp from The Greeting Farm. I had promised myself NOT to buy any new stamps for awhile, but for three dollars, it was worth it!! I still stuck with the school colors, although I used Basic Grey instead of Black. I colored my image with my Copic markers, cut and embossed it with my Cuttlebug and Oval Nesties, and layered it with Basic Grey. The DP is from the Walk In The Park DSP from SU. The sentiment is from one of the older All Year Cheer sets from SU as well. I added some Basic Grey taffeta, but I didn't do much else cause I didn't want it to get to girlie!! Hopefully he likes it, I know I do!! That is it for me now, thanks for looking and have a great day!!
