Today's sketch for Try Stampin' on Tuesday is a really good one (well aren't they all)! I love how so many ideas flow from this sketch.
I decided to give this first card a masculine feel. Since I'm so low on Birthday cards. I used the emboss/resist technique with Distress Inks on the stamped panel. I used the yellow pp for this panel just so I got some added texture. I really love the colours of Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge & Pumice Stone together. They really make that fern leaf stand out. I'm breaking out some stamps I haven't used in ages as well, which is helping the Mojo return as well.
This next card has to me a retro kid feel about it. Not sure why though? Maybe it's the colours of the red & blue. Anyway I did a little paper piecing on this card for the cupcake, fussy cut the red banner & balloon out. I used pop dots on the balloon to make it look like it's floating. The best bit was this was a really quick card to make.
snakes kidlets seem to be very quiet at the moment so had better go & find out what chaos & mayhem they've gotten themselves into this time. Take care & sending hugs to you all. Oh please don't forget about my little give away here.
