I've been trying to blog ALL DAY but no time! We have SEVEN children here right now so it's a crazy.....but FUN........night! So I'm going to keep this fairly short, so please enjoy the photos!
I made three cards last night while waiting out the storms. I used my hand stamped patterned paper that I posted on June 3rd. It's SO MUCH fun to make your own patterned paper. You get exactly what you want.
This first card uses one of my favorite images from the Crafty Secrets Bugs set. Isn't it fun to think about being SO tiny that you have a cherry for a house? I used to love little story books with themes like this. Cute, cute image! Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. Spellbinder's Nestabilities Die Cut.I love this chair from Karen Lockhart, available at Ellen's store! It SO reminds me of the ones my folks still have. I can't recall how many colors they've been painted. I love this pink version! Sentiment from A Muse.
And here's another kitty from Anna Wight's Cat's Life stamp set from Whipper Snapper. Don't you love the jewels on her hand cut crown? I think she's SO sweet! I took the photos on one of Jordan's new finds for her room. I got this at a little sale that these ladies has trash to treasure items. This is a seat, painted shabby pink. I believe that many of these seats are meant to go around a big picnic table. There was only one at the sale so we nabbed it! Jordy's going to sit her American Girl Dolls on this or maybe use it to sit and tie her shoes before school. I love it!
And here's the sketch I used for all three cards. I used different snippets of my hand made patterned paper for each card. All ribbon and cardstock by Papertrey Ink, Spellbinder's Die Cuts, Copic Sketch markers, Palette Black Noir ink.
Note: I'd love to elaborate on some Copic tips but I gotta run. Be sure to check out Marianne's blog for some good information. I would just jot it in journal to check daily.....or sign up for her email updates. Awesome stuff! Okay, I reallllllllly gotta go now, the kids are wanting food!!!
