I'm popping in to share a card I made when I had a short break night before last. The kids and I are having chill time this afternoon and a half-folded basket of laundry still awaits me. LOL. I'm not moving very fast on it! :) I started out ambitious, but now I'm just lazing around. I will admit -- it's kind of nice. And I think the kids are having fun. I sure am going to miss them in a couple weeks when they go back to school.
This time I'm playing along with Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge again. It's been a few weeks since I've played. And, I had a new set to experiment with.
I made this card using the Green Thumb stamp and die set from Paper Smooches.
I first stamped the "scene" from my PTI On The Farm stamp set. I colored up the stamps in CTMH Sky blue for, well, the sky and I used Desert Sand and Chocolate inks for the garden dirt. I have the Chocolate layer popped up using 3-D foam tape, so that the carrots can easily be tucked behind. I die cut, stamped and colored the carrots using my SN markers. I layered this panel over scrap pieces of my CTMH Dream Pop paper that was laying on my desk from another project. I stamped the sentiment from my PS Sentiment Sampler stamp set. I attached the Honey colored metal circle and sketched the yellow rays using my SN markers again. It was so much fun, I had to decorate the inside of the card to coordinate, as well. 8-)
I finished the inside off simply by outlining the sentiment panel with a black journaling pen. (I recently got a new one and it's been the best $2 or $3 I've spent in a long time!)
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!
