Yes today I have two cards to share...
First it is Tuesday and that means it is time for A Spoon Full of Sugar!! And let me tell you I really enjoyed this challenge! I just love DT member LIM's cards and this week she shared a sketch for us to all play with!!
For my card today I had just gotten my Magnolia Spring kit... which really confused me, I haven't gotten the past two kits hmmm?? I emailed a million times trying to find out why and then decided that oh well I guess I just need to give up and not worry with them anymore. And then what arrived in the mail? Yep the next kit - I started to send it back, then decided it wasn't worth the trouble and besides they were awful cute.
For my card I used K &Company Classic K paper collection. You can't tell in this photo but the dot pattern that I used as the back paper, has a dark rose dot... that is where I got my colors for Tilda from. She is colored with my Copics, the background I used E53 Raw Silk and just went the same way vertical over and over... I think it give a linen look for the background to her. I cut her with my Nestibilities circle and then out of one of the pattern papers I cut a matching scallop. I high lighted her and gel pen stitched the edge with a white gel pen.
I followed the sketch and picked the patterns and the base. I inked the edges of all the pieces, and matted some of them. After putting all the pieces together I added dew drops for the "spots" that are part of the sketch. Prima flowers on the bottom corner, and a ancient sticker from my stash for the sentiment. This sketch looks like a lot - but wow just following it I think makes one fabulous card! Please do take the time to pop over to A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge and see all of the really gorgeous cards the DT put together and then get the sketch and take part yourself! A great prize again this week!
And now the card I just had to show off today!!! A sneak peak of one of the new Digi images from The Greeting Farm that will be available April 1st! No joke!
Meet Grad Ian! Is he one smart looking dude or what?
My Ian is colored with my Copics, and then cut out. The base of my card is black card stock with a piece of scrap yellow as a partial mat. The red dot scalloped paper is from Sassafrass Lass - love those scalloped bottoms. And then I just couldn't resist a piece of Karen Fosters grade school paper :) I punched the left side with a EK Success spiral punch. I tied a piece of gingham black and white ribbon around the center, and then typed out the sentiment with a label maker. Three vintage buttons from my Grandmother's button box and then white gel pen stitching around the edge finish off this card!
How perfect is this for a coming Graduation card? And if you don't have a gentleman graduating... don't worry Anya is a Grad too :) Do make sure to check out The Greeting Farm Site and see other sneak peeks and for more see the Club Anya Blog too!
Whew... that was a lot - I think I am going to go and get my bowl of Shredded mini wheat and visit a few blogs before I get busy -
Have a great day!
