Hello friends & happy "almost-Friday", LOL! I sure am hoping for some blue skies & sun today--the gray weather & rain is making me grumpy :o( Just for fun, I was perusing realtor.com last night looking at homes in Hilton Head Island, SC---found quite a few that I could buy & move in to, hee hee! Always good to have a goal & dream in hand, dontcha' think? One of these days I'll live in the South where I belong, sigh..... and yeah I'm kinda crazy I know (ROFL)!! But onto to a couple of cheery, springy cards for ya today!!
For both of my cards today I used this week's SCS sketch #224--so versatile! On this lovely Magnolia card, I flipped the sketch sideways. I adore this "Tilda with Lamb" from Magnolia-licious and was sad I didn't get to use it before Easter, but I believe alot of these cute stamps can be used for so many more events than just one specific holiday! I wanted Tilda to look like she was sitting on a hill of wildflowers with a baby lamb friend who just happened to wander by.
The background stamp is "Summer Background" that is available at Magnolia-licious too! After coloring with Copics I added some Flower Soft (sunshine yellow & heather) to the hillside for some pretty wildflowers! The yummy dp is from SU paired up with PTI cs (plum pudding & lavender moon). Tilda was cut out & popped up and the sentiment is from a Hero Arts set I've had for a bit. Flowers are Primas, Doodlebug brads & stickles on the clouds & sun! I really love this card--YILM (NOT)!!!! (This card is for sale in my Etsy shop--link on sidebar)
This second card was done using the same sketch, just flipped! I LOVE, LOVE this image of Charlotte (Rogue Charlotte) since I first got a peek of it months ago--she's one of the new stamps in the new Medieval Collection from Whiff of Joy! She's so cute & gives off such a great attitude--reminds me of myself, hee hee! Girly on the outside, but strong & tough as nails inside!! So of course I had to have an appropriate sentiment that had some 'tude in it, LOL! This sentiment is from a Sweet 'n Sassy set (Stylin Shoes--now 25% off too)--lovee the sentiments in it!
The dp is by My Minds Eye (Tres Jolie) paired with PTI cs & ribbon (melon berry)! I added a few Bella Baubles to embellish it too! Lovee this card so much :o)
Just a close-up to show you all the Shimmerz (Angel Wingz) I used on it; the arrow was colored with my gold spica pen. Make sure and check out all the new Medieval stamps now available at Whiff of Joy--they're fabby & I'll have more projects with them over the next few days!
If you haven't purchased the "Summer Kit" from WOJ yet, you have until May 4th to do so! You get 11 stamps by Elisabeth Bell & 4 sentiments by Katharina for only $37--its a deal baby!
BTW, Paper Trey Ink had their release on the 15th and yes I ordered everything again---cuz' I can't help myself (its a sickness for sure)! I wish they'd take a month off, so my checkbook can get a break, LOL! Make sure and check out all their new goodies (love, love the new teapot set)!
And no, I don't get paid by them (I wish) just really love all their products :o)
Make sure and stop by Susana's store blog "Follow Your Heart" today to see a tutorial by DT member Christine--she's showing you how to make those fun Pizza Boxes!!
Have a great day!
