Hi Friends and Stampers,
Happy Holly-Day Friday! It's my turn to post over at the Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Blog. I hope you are all enjoying this Friday and have the weekend off! I have to work tomorrow, but I am off on Sunday, so I cannot complain about that.
I made this card for a very nice couple that works closely with our department. They are so warm and helpful and the cutest couple ever. I mean literally, she is beautiful and tiny and he is Mr Personality and eye candy. And they are so super sweet to boot! lol. Anyhoo, they just had a baby boy and I wanted to make them a card from the department and we are going to put a little gifty in that pocket. This is the first time I have used my Gift Card Verticle Pocket and I can't say enough how much I love it! Easy peasy and already to fold and glue. Wow. It was so worth the money because it's a total no brainer, and it looks so neat and tidy. I airbrushed by background and stamped the cute scene over that, and then colored in the images. Sometimes I will fussy cut a mask and place it over the images but in this case, it was so intriquet and I decided it was not worth it. Light blue was easy to color over, lol. The little bit that does show up in the yellow makes it appear more realistic anyway. My bird started out blue, but it blended too well, then I added some red and the some yellow red. The tail was green because I mistook it for a leaf until I actually looked at it, lol. But you know, I love this little bird and how he turned out.
Have you had a chance to see the New Items in the store? Have you played in our current challenge? Anything Goes! Hope to see your cards there!
