First up I used the Sugar Rush set to create this little cutie:
|(Please pardon the poor lighting - I failed to snap a pic during the daylight hours today. That nap wasn't going to take itself!)|
My card design was inspired by this weeks challenge at Freshly Made Sketches:
I am also playing along with 4 Crafty Chicks "Anniversary" challenge.
My next card I played around with a couple of new Avery Elle inks and the PS Leafy Greens stamp set:
I used Avery Elle's Fog and Mint To Be, CTMH's Sunset, and PTI's Hibiscus Burst. The sentiment is from PS Spiritual Sampler.
My card design was inspired by the sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch:
I got a little wild and crazy and tilted my panels; it wouldn't be the first time I've been called a "non-conformist". I try not to advertise that, but sometimes my true inner self slips out like that. I just wanted an excuse to stamp those leaves all around my card! Luckily, I had restocked some of my enamel dots (I've been hoarding what little I still had) and I had perfect matches to the inks I used on this panel. I love how the extra dimension they provide without the bulk.
I'm also playing along with Crazy 4 Challenges - use the first thing you think of on your card (the Wink of Stella pen for card #1 and the new Mint ink on card #2 -- I had to use that color on something). Additionally, I'm submitting to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge -- use something new (most all of my goodies used on these two cards were from Christmas gifts.)
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit! I hope everyone is having a great new year so far! (I'm such a "winter wimp" I'm already counting down the days til springtime. Ugh.)
