Sorry I’m posting late today! I wanted to share the card I made for Jen’s Sketch For You To Try which YNS is sponsoring this month! I used this super adorable image called Chompy~Love Him!!! I colored him up with some Copic Markers then cut him out and popped him up on some Dimensionals. I added some Stardust Stickles to his spots and some Glossy Accents to the water droplets on the leaf. The dp is some Echo Park Paper Co. A Walk in the Park, and I computer generated the sentiment.
Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day!
Kerri Recipe: Stamps: Your Next Stamp Chompy Paper: PTI Aqua Mist, SU Kiwi Kiss, EPP A Walk in the Park dp Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, PTI Aqua Mist Accessories: PTI Ribbon, Sewing Machine, Circle and Lacey Circle Nesties, Buttons, Dimensionals, Stardust Stickles, Glossy Accents
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! We had fantastic weather all weekend and the sun is shinning again today! YAY! Brandon is so excited about this new park we have down the street that he woke up at 7:30 am and asked if we could go to the park…I got him to wait until 10 am and then we headed out for some play time.
Now you aren’t required to incorporate both themes for the challenge to enter, but I was able to by using this happy little flower, Dixie Daisy. This image was part of the March YNS release and I LOVE it and couldn’t wait to create with it!! I’ve used DP from My Mind’s Eye, Fine and Dandy which begged to be paired with kraft cardstock. The kraft cardstock was embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. The paper panels were all machine stitched and I used tiny champagne colored heart rhinestones for a simple yet sparkly accent. The image was stamped on Vintage Cream cardstock and for fun I stamped the image again and popped the eyes up with foam tape for dimension. The petals were given a sparkle treatment by using my mixture of Shimmerz and Stickles.
Craft us Crazy is owned and operated by my dear friend Jeri, so this a real treat for me to be designing along with her and her very talented design team. I hope you will stop by the Craft us Crazy challenge blog and link up your Mother’s Day and/or Flower project for your chance to win a $10 Your Next Stamp Gift Certificate.
