I am trying to get my mojo in gear but I think Dr. Evil syphoned it out so I must go looking for it. I had a weekend of not talking to anyone except my hubby and 4 phone calls which was great. I had to create another sympathy card since someone in Credit Counselling land lost their father. The other card is for my Hubby's Aunt which I hope she will like. So here we go..
the cuddlebug, leaf punch, stamps, cardstock. stickles.
Crafty Creations-Anything Goes
Simon Says-Use a die or punch
This is for the lady who lost her dad so I kept the colours soft and tried to make it feminine but something a man might like. I took a folder with the embossed design, placed the paper on it and put it through the cuddlebug to imprint the design. I took a light green scrap paper and punched out a number of leaves. I glued the white cardstock onto the embossed design, glued 4 leafs down and used pop up dots for the other 4. I stamped the bird and flowers plus the saying and embossed it with 2 different powders. A dark green for the saying and a pearl green for the others.I finished it off with some light green stickles to create a border.
sizzex machione, cuddlebug machine, die cut oval piece, gamsol colours, birdie stamp, silver ribbon, blue marker, border stickers.

Color Throwdown-Greek blue, sky blue and grey-I'm too late!
Who knew? Here is some blue:). I used my sizzex to cut out the oval piece and put it through the cuddlebug to emboss the areas. One can use the Sizzex for all things but I like using the cuddlebug for the embossing part. I stamped and embossed the bird in white on white scrap paper, cut out an oval from the scrap white paper and rubbed on blue distress ink. The image appears since the colour doesn't stick to the embossed part. I adhered it to the blue filigree which, in turn was glued onto the silver/grey base. I took some white cardstock to create the card and then just scribbled 2 blue colours from the Gamsol prisma colour pencils around the edges. Everything was placed together with the sticker borders, I painted in blue, stuck on each corner.
It is hot and sticky and I don't mean hot crossed buns! I can't wait for cooler non-humid days.
