I got to play a little bit today with some new stamps and my March Counterfeit Kit. I struggled a bit with these colors, and I'm not quite sure that I was successful. Getting inky made me happy, though! Here are the 4 cards that I made today-but I still have a ton of paper in my kit that I want to use up! I see a few more blue and yellow cards being created before the weekend is over. :)
This card uses some older stamp images from Hero Arts and Art Impressions. My wonderful sister-in-law, Patti (the one who got me hooked on stamping a few years ago), recently passed all of her stamping supplies along to a few lucky recipients. This is a thank you that I made for her using some of those stamps.
I am in love with this little bunny stamp from Unity and Jillibean Soup's "Chicken Dumpling". Isn't he sweet? This is a super-simple CAS card that used just a few scraps of patterned paper from my kit.
I'm not quite sure about this card. I think it needs a "pop" of color somewhere. What do you think? I think it just may be a bit too much blue for me. I love the white lace over the kraft, however. To make the kraft border, I traced a blue die cut border from my kit onto kraft, trimmed it with scissors, then used a brass stencil to dry-emboss the edge. You can see just a hint of it in the picture. Adds a little "oomph". :)
This card is super bright and cheery. I used a Hero Arts flower set and a "vintage" sentiment from PSX (another pressie from my SIL.) The blue and green patterned paper on the bottom is actually a journaling box that was on the back of one of my kit papers. It worked perfectly as flower stems! I added some bling to the centers and a little notch to the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by today-and remember the Lily Pad Cards' Birthday Blog Hop starts tomorrow morning at 9 AM! Lots of inspiration and goodies up for grabs!
