Hello! Hope that everyone is having a bright and sunny day! : )
Soooooo, I belong to the Paper Pretties Stamp of the Month Club and fell head over heels in love with this month's stamp!! She reminds me so much of my youngest daughter! How cute is she?!! I wasn't sure what I was going to do first with her, but knew right away that I couldn't wait to ink her up! I played around with several possibilities this morning and came up with this card! I used a ton of miscellaneous products on it! My first thought was to make a 3d pile of punched out leaves, but no matter how hard I tried to arrange them they were just a little too big and just were not working! So I scrapped the leaves and dug out the other punches and tools! I also used my new Nestabilities for the very first time! I have to say I am not really all that impressed with them. I hope that the more I play with them and use them the more I will like them, but so far I just am not in love. I have the Cuttlebug and broke my B plate trying to make it all work out. That was a big bummer! I added a faux cross stitch pattern to the outside edge of my image and some stripes of color behind it. I used some clear half bead embellishments that my sweet SBS2 sister (Hi Karyn!!!) sent me and a little snippet of ribbon that arrived the other day with my new stamps from Sweet N Sassy! I just kept adding and adding to this card until it finally felt done! : ) I also stamped this little cutie twice and layed her for a more 3d look!
My home school group is having a Fall Party next week and I am going to try to come up with some sort of cutsie patootsie treat basket with this stamp!
Hubby is home safe and sound and I am so happy about that! Looks like he actually may get to stay in town for a while this time! Big grin! : )
Hope that you have a wonderful day!! Be back soon!
