I got a chance on Saturday to make some cards! Shocking huh? The first I made was one of the new Tina Wenke images from Stampavie. Ok now these images are just too gorgeous. I am so in love with coloring them and making cards with them, just too cute! This one is Mouse in a Nutboat. How sweet is this for a baby card?
I colored with my Copics and then high lighted with white gel pen. And the back ground is chalk - love the soft look it gives to the backgrounds, so the image can pop.
For the card I started with a white card stock base, then pulled a few patterns from K&Company's Gypsy baby stack. (I think that is the name.. ) I created a "ribbon" or band across the middle with one of the patterns and two EK Success border punches. Everything is matted with the white card stock and sewed down. I couldn't decide which flowers I liked better with this card... the prima flowers or the Creative Inspirations felt flowers - so I used both! With a large button, jewelry spacers and mini brads, and Martha Stewart frond leaf and branch punches. The sentiment is from Hero Arts, punched out with a Stampin Up Word Window punch.
I hope you have found the new Tina Wenke stamps in your stores... if not ask them to get them in - they are just tooooo cute! Or you can shop at any of these links from the Stampavie Store Locator's page... ( just helping enable you!!!) Just click the location you would like to shop from, then you will see a listing with all the info for every store that has Stampavie images! Love the Google Map feature... you can print out a map for directions and even see the photos of some of the stores.. :0)
Better get my day going... Hubby is home working on my craft room... :0)
