Two cards today!
First is for Cute Card Thursday. The theme this week is a simple but always needed. A Birthday Day Card. I pulled out my new Alota Rubber Stamps Three Scoops stamp and inked it up. Ok, it was 102 here yesterday and ice cream would have been wonderful!
I colored it with my Copics and then covered the ice cream, topping and cherry with Diamond Glaze. The whipped creme I colored in with my white gel pen. I set that aside to dry and then pulled out a yellow card stock, and a blue scrap and ran thru my Cuttlebug Happy birthday embossing folder.
The pattern papers are from DCWV Summer stack as the bright colors matched perfect. Then sewed everything down with a pink zig zag stitch. Including the image. I also added 4 large pink brads to the corners of the matted image. I ran a pink Catseye ink over one line of the embossed Happy birthday to make it stand out just a big more.
I then stamped the matching sentiment "Hope you have a three scoop kind of day" on white and matted with the pink and placed on the inside of the card. I doodled around the inside edge with pink Sakura Glaze Pen. Fun and Bright and ready for someone specials birthday!
Second card is for A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge Blog, loving this site! I happily have a few more images, THANKS DONALDA!!! She sent me a few Rachelle Anne Miller and Sweet Ebony as I was sad and didn't have many to play with. The challenge this week is to make a card of celebrations. Well I figured this image was perfect to make a wedding or anniversary card. I wanted to stick to a red, black and white colors. So I colored the image in with shades of red (pink is a red right?), black, grey and whites, other than their skin and hair that is. I then used a piece of Bazzill Bling dark red card stock as the base. Then a few pieces out of a Making Memories kit. Love the deep colors in this set, I matted the image three times. And then stitched down with a Sakura Black Glaze Pen. I took my Fiskars extra-large heart punch and cut a heart out of the corner of the main pattern paper. After sticking down the paper I stitched the inside of the heart, this is the base of the card showing through. The tag, and the Amour sticker are part of the kit, and seemed to work perfect here. I also doodled around the edge of the card, just because I couldn't stand to not do it. =) Hope it works for the challenge, I am happy with how it came out... don't you just feel the "love"?
Well I am excited - today is crop day! It has been over a month since the last crop at my LSS, The Scrapbook Corral. I will admit, I probably am going to need some extra caffeine for tonight's midnight fun, but it will be so worth the fun with my buddies. And I have some fun Gato photos to scrap. Then it is an all day till midnight crop tomorrow! Whoo Hoo... I can sleep on Sunday! =) Hope you have a great Friday!
