Happy Birthday Partner! How fun is this card, I used my Alota Rubber Stamps Western set to create this fun little scene. I love this set, but I do tend to like the country western stamps, if only they would have some donkeys...... But seriously this set really has a lot of stamps, at a really great value- check it and the other sets available in the store.
This card is made with a kraft paper card base and scraps of pattern papers. I think they are Daisy D's. I colored in the cute images with my Copics, white gel pen, Spica Glitter pens and high lighted with twinkling H2O's. I distressed, inked and sewed around everything. I pop dotted the cute little dude to give the appearance that he is sitting out in front of the blacksmith shop.
I then sewed around the outer edge of the entire card randomly. I then pop dotted the sentiment as well. I love that this set comes with more than one sentiment, so you have lots of options for types of cards. Fun card, that I just realized qualifies for the Cute Card Challenge of cards for kids!
My second card is for the Penny Black Challenge blog. They gave a great sketch for this week, and this card came together really fast, I got this cute little cat a couple of weeks ago and just knew he would be perfect for a summer time smile card.
I colored him with Copics and white gel pen. I then found a yellow Bazzill card stock for the base and a scrap piece of orange to match the image.
The pattern papers are from DCWV Summer stack and match perrrrrrfect!
The round sentiment is from Aud Designs and is then cut with my Fiskar's Circle Squeeze Punch. I doodled the edges of everything. Love how summery and fun this one came out!
Hope you week starts out great and you have a wonderful Monday!
