For my card this week I again have used one of the new sneak peeks from Stampavie's Leere Aldrich brand new line!
This is "Mother and Daughter" but I think they look more like best friends. I stamped my image first on my white card stock, then a second time on a scrap of pink pattern paper from My Minds Eye, the a third time on a scrap of blue, that I have no idea who it is.. scrap no name. Both of these pattern papers are two sided, so I then stamped a fourth and fifth time on the back sides to create their "pants". I colored my image with Copics, then cut out their clothes and "dressed" them. Don't they look cute? I used the scraps for the papers on the card, I just love that pink My Minds Eye.
I used brown card stock for the base, the pink papers I cute and then used the Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch on the edge. I inked the edges of everything with brown ink. I found ribbon that matched perfect in my stash, but I thought it was too narrow - so I ran it twice lining up the stripes created a checkered look. You again today see the new sentiment from Leere Aldrich... told you that I would be using it a bunch! Now for my flowers... what do you think about those big silver circles? I am not sure about them, kind of odd, but you see I purchased this big box of silver jewelery making pieces at the LSS garage sale the other day and there is a bunch of these circle things - so I thought I would see how they work on a card.... still wondering here - LOL I stacked Prima flowers, spacers and mini brads. I love those printed primas.. add so much drama!
And of course I had to gel pen stitch down everything -
You just must go over and check out the other DT cards at A Spoon Full of Sugar, wow these ladies piece things together!! Really wonderful work!
I have to tell you I have a great Hubby... I have been calling all of the Micheal's stores around town waiting for the new Martha Valentine border punches, I must have them... I collect hearts...so I just must! Well they still don't have them in stock! And yesterday he came into the room while I was calling again. He asked why I didn't check another town - uh hello I didn't want to drive 1.5-2 hours to go to the next town. He said well just check and see, and if they have them we will make a little day trip out of it. Well they did! They held them for me, we went and I now have them!!! Isn't he just the bestest! Thanks sweetie!
Now some time for my Wii Fit, breakfast, then I am going to squeeze in some blog surfing before I start cleaning out a closet.. uuhggggg!
HUGS and hope you have some fun planned!
