Maybe this is where Sarah Kay lives...

It is Tuesday - that is Spoon Full of Sugar Day - and today we are shifting the shapes!



"We would like to see all different shapes of cards and not the normal square one's we all like to make ;-) We have a great prize this week of the two cute stamps (Easter Jar & Chick in Egg). These have been kindly donated by Helene from Alota Rubber Stamps. "





Me... ok, so it still has corners, it is a long rectangle, with a top off of it. I started with the background stamp. I purchased this stamp a long time ago at a craft garage sale, it is from Arts Uniq' Inc. - I just loved all the details, but well it is HUGE! The stamp measures 5x7 (that includes the tree off of the top). And well I really didn't know what I was going to do with it, but I just loved it. The wording around the edge reads.



"One hundred years together - Would surely be too few - For every day , all over again ... I fell in Love with you. D Morgan."

Well it took a couple of tries to get a good image - takes a lot of pressure to get the entire thing evenly stamped. I colored with my Copics - yes it took some time, but not as long as I thought. I then stamped out one of my Sarah Kay images - she was PERFECT for this, can't believe I hadn't seen that before - She just looks like she is getting ready to walk down the path to the house in the background. I wonder ... do you think this is where she lives? or visiting a friend? What ever the store is, she fits. She too is colored with Copics and then I cut her out. The large image is also cut out. I went with the straight lines of most of the image but then popped out the tree at the top of the card. The Sarah Kay image is pop dotted off of the background so she has some dimension. Only other thing is a simple white gel pen stitching around the edge of the light blue card stock base.

Hmmm guess I am gonna have to make an envelope for this one as it is bigger than a 5x7....


Make sure you pop over to A Spoon Full of Sugar and see all the wonderful shapes! And welcome our two new DT members, Caryn and Karen... really wonderful cards to see.

HUGS and -
