I went easy on the stickles - only the "golden" egg and the chickens combs are glittery! Aren't they just the cutest? I have recently purchased a lattice die for my cuttlebug - it didn't cut well, but I love the idea so you get to see the part that it did cut! Guy card = button instead of flower. Liked that little rubbery button that says you're the best. I used a dashed line punch and threaded the twine through. I like the different look. This card is on red cardstock. Amy R of Prairie Paper and Ink does a lot of videos and she has shown me over and over to cut some extra pieces of dp when I am making the card front. These will be used to decorate the inside of the card. Life has become a lot easier since I do that! Not only, but the inside of the card isn't hard to make anymore and it actually makes sense! What do you think?
The copics I used on this card are: E00, E11, E51, E53, E57, E59, E18, R20, R22, R27, R29, BG000, BG01, BG05, Y21, Y26, YR23.
This next card is for one of the younger grandsons. Actually this one is nine.
I couldn't believe my luck when I found that ribbon in my stash! And that paper, too! How perfect that was for this image! I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to lay out the scene and paper pieced the clouds. If you go ahead and stamp them first you will have that nice black edge even if you accidentally cut some of it off when cutting out the pieces! (Thank you Kristina Werner!) I used a few Tim Holtz distress inks on the inside. They really do match the dp! I recently bought a Tim Holtz die that cuts a bunch of different tags all at the same time. Just had to give it a shot, and found a stamp with a cute sentiment that fit on one of the tags. See what I mean about the inside? It looked ok just plain, but I love to ink anything I can! So here are the copics I used on this card: E51, E57, E18, E53, E00, E11, E59, C2, C3, C5, C7, R20, R27, R29, R14, YR23, Y21, Y26, BG09, BG05, BG01, YG23, YG13, YG09, YG17.
I don't usually post two cards at the same time, but it has been quite awhile and since they are both done ---. Sure hope you all enjoy them. Please leave me a comment! I just love hearing from you! The next two cards are for women, so they will be (hopefully) more frilly. I love frilly, I just don't make mine real fussy. I just might though this time! Stay tuned! Hugs to you all, Barb F
