Ahhh, Friday at last! I'm really looking forward to the weekend and getting a chance to relax a bit. And we are only a few more days away from the launch of the new Whimsy Stamps digital stamp collection, so that's exciting! I hope you will join us on Monday for the release party blog hop beginning at noon EST! Have a wonderful weekend!
Today I have two cards to share with you. The first for Stamp Something and our challenge this week of "Stitch Something." You can use real stitching or faux, a little or a lot, but you must have some stitching accents on your project to be eligible to win the prize and be selected as a Top 5 Stamper.
This week our sponsor is Paper Jewels and they kindly gave the DT Bildmalarna or Sweet Pea images to work with. I've used a Sweet Pea image, it's my first time using one of these. I have to say I didn't think they were really my style, but after coloring her, I might be changing my mind. She's definitely different from what I'm used to working with, but coloring her was a lot of fun, so I may need to do it again!
Crissy's dotty background tutorial to color the background around the image. I also added some Stickles to her fin and in the background for added shimmer. The papers are DCWV and BG Wisteria. I've stitched all the edges of each layer and matched them to some Baja and Eggplant card stock from Stampin' Up!. The embellishments are Prima flowers and sticky gems.
This card fits the challenges at:
Truly Scrumptious: Sketch
Stamptacular Sunday: Girl Cards
Paper Play Challenges: Shiny Happy People
Next I have my card for this week's Just Magnolia challenge, which is Punch It Out! We'd like to see you use your Magnolia images with some punches to create a project. I've also decided to try a new fold with my card today, it's a Joy Fold and I got the idea from my teamie Sheila from her card last week.
For my punches I've used Circle and Scalloped Circle Nesties, lace border punch, Heart Corners Nesties, and the modern label punch. Here is a picture of the inside...I've used a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.
This card also fits the challenges at:
