I have plenty of left-overs so this was no problem, but I wanted to do something different. I went thru all of my Magnolia stamps and tried to get some inspiration. I then pulled out my Fiskars square squeeze punch and got myself a bunch of 1 inch squares. As they piled up they reminded me of a "quilt"! Oh I can make a crazy quilt, and place Tilda in the grass, on the quilt! I Colored Tilda with Copics and high lighted with white gel pen, then cut her out. I cut my ATC size and then place all my squares randomly onto the ATC, then cut down again. I used a dark green Sakura Glaze pen and did crazy type of stitches on each block. Now Tilda needed some pillows. I started to try and cut out a pillow shape, but then thought these large buttons had a fun look. So did you get it?
My second card is for the Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge. Which was really fun this week. It is a 3-2-1 Challenge. 3- brads or buttons, 2- pattern papers, 1- flower. So I got out one of my new Sugar Nellie stamps. I picked Dress Up Maggie, cuz she looked just too fun to color it. I reached for my Copics and did her face and hands and then stopped. I need to try something new... So I pulled out my Twinkling H2O's and colored the rest of her with them. Ok, need to practice this cuz I am not happy with my results. I highlighted with the white gel pen, and Sakura Glaze Pens, but I just am not happy with it. I will be trying this again and doing lots of practice I guess. I cut her out with my Nestibilities Oval, and then matted with pink Oval scallops. I chose two piece of scraps that matched her dress and boa, then chose the base for the card out of my stash of card stock. I used some of those Cloud 9 gel stitch stickers to place around the edges of the pattern paper, I think it gives it a lace look. Now I was trying out lots of brads.....then due to the girlie theme in the card I went to my vintage buttons and found three matching pink buttons. I ran mini ribbon thru it and tied. My flower is a I think from Creative Impressions, it is a left over, but had some bling glitter and I thought it would work. I have a million primas... really I do, but not one was the right shade of pink! The sentiment is from Hanna Stamps and I think is perfect for Maggie.
Lots on the schedule today, including Bonnie Blue's full tune up. (Bonnie is my border collie, my child) Today is all of her shots, and full physical. Love her vet as he really checks her out top to bottom and makes sure she is doing ok. Hubby is off to go with us, so I am sure we will be doing some chores that he has on his list today. Hope your Thursday will be great!
