Hello & Happy Saturday everyone! Hope your weekend is off to a great start! It is in the 70's here and my windows are wide open & I'm soooo lovin' it. Now if the trees would bloom & everything turn that wonderful spring-y green :o) And we get to turn out clocks forward tomorrow (so don't forget, hee hee)--more daylight, yay!!! I have 2 projects to share with you today that I hope you'll enjoy.....
I finally got my Medieval Whiff of Joy stamps this week, after waiting patiently for weeks (not really, hee hee). Seems that someone in the customs office likes WOJ stamps cuz' they're not getting to me when they should, LOL! Anywhoo, I've got two very different projects to show with them today for ya! If you love these stamps, 7 Kids College Fund has them for pre-order right now(soon to be in stock) if you want to order them here in the States!
This little cutie is "Maid Charlotte"--I just love her & her pretty dress & flowers! I paired her up with this yummo-licious dp from My Mind's Eye (Laundry Line--love this stuff)--I thought the criss-cross pattern reminded me of her dress bodice. She's colored with Copics of course and I added some diamond stickles to her flowers! The flowers are Prima & Petaloo's and I used my Goldilocks Bella Baubles in their centers! Sentiment is from Verve Stamps! Do you love her?Now, this one is totally different from what I usually do and I love it for that reason! Looks like a simple card but it took me forevah' (isn't it always the simple cards that take longer, hee hee)! This cutie pop is "Warrior Charlie" from the same WOJ Medieval Line--love him! The dp is from DCWV "fantasy" stack--I distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz paper distresser and inked the edges real good too. I wanted this card to be ALL BOY--totally masculine and roughed up!
Now don't faint my friends, but yes I actually hand-sewed around the edges (I know how to sew, just don't like it, lol) with brown Scrappers Floss. I wanted to use twine but it was just too thick, so to the rescue--Scrappers Floss--worked wonderfully and sewed beautifully, lovee this stuff! This little knight was colored with Copics and then I added Diamond Glaze to his shield and a few Armor spots and lots of Shimmerz (angel wingz) on his shoes & sword, and Copper Bella Baubles too! That fun sentiment is from a Gina K set called "Kindred Greetings for Him". My son said it was a "cool" card, so I guess it passed the boy test---hee hee! You likee?
That's all for me today! I'll see ya back here on Monday & hopefully my laptop will be back up & running by then! Have a great weekend!
