I finished my last DTGD card on Sunday, and am now anxiously awaiting the reveal of the prize winners--I read they picked up quite a few items at CHA. Yippee!
Darlene's fan club card, I knew I had to CASE it! I've had this Cuttlekids pig die (named Ian!) since about the first month I started stamping, but have never used it on a card. I cut the body out of October Afternoon paper, and although the die has a separate snout, I liked Darlene's use of the button. The wings are the big butterfly from the SU Embosslet, cut in half and bent back a little. I used dimensionals three-deep to accommodate the wings. The sentiment is from PTI Enjoy The Ride and I added sewing around the Sage Shadow embossed layer and the cute striped OA layer. Get ready for some extreme cuteness:
I'm not sure I'm going to be able to give this one away. This next one, however, I made just for my MIL, so I did give it away to her.
the Leatherback Trust and when I saw this $1 turtle stamp, I had to pick it up. I really would have preferred that she had picked a prettier turtle to love, but I knew she would like the fact it was personalized for her. The shell was colored with copics and the body with prismacolor pencils, then I used a white gel pen for the dots. I used an old SCS layout and some Maine Blueberry dp, and of course some Soft Suede because I have addiction issues.
We went to lunch and a movie today since it's the last day that DH & I are both off before school starts on Monday. Since we finished lunch early, I suggested popping into the Hallmark store. And yes, now we will have Boba Fett and Han Solo (in carbonite) on our tree. I also think I could buy the entire line of Fresh Ink cards. In fact, you may be seeing some "inspired by" cards here pretty soon. Does anyone else miss buying store-bought cards?
