Addicted to Stamps-Anything Goes
This was fun to make and quite quick. I actually made these 2 about 3 weeks ago before, well, blah blah. I need to get my jolt juice again! So I have this little ladybug stamp which I stamped and embossed in black. I took a red tombow marker to colour the little bugs. I added a scrap red paper plus my heavy, sparkle, black felt and glued them down. I inked the saying in black and added black sparkle embossing powder to most of the words but added red sparkle to the word "loves'. I used my flower punch from a yellow and orange scrap paper for some zowie colour burst with 2 red gems for the centre.
Birds Stamp, silver embossing pad, various embossing powders, cherry blossom pink stickers, flower gems, dark blue chalk, Q-Tip, pink and shimmery navy blue cardstock.

I have a weekly day planner and, each week, a new picture is shown for that week. There are these beautiful birds, don't ask me what they are, but they have light blue head, iridescent body in blue and red legs. I decided to try to reproduce this using embossing powders that I sprinkled down in the area I wanted that colour to be. I heat embossed it so the colour is melted on (one uses the heating tool every time you emboss with embossing ink and powders). I took a Q-Tip to spread some darker blue around the image and adhered it to the cardstock. I finished it off with some pretty cherry blossoms and the flower gems. Oh, to make sure the chalk plus other stuff, like Perfect Pearls, doesn't come off your fingers, I spray hairspray in the air and move the card through the mist.
Can you believe June is already here?

I hope you are feeling better as a new week begins, dear friend! As always I admire your artistry on the latest greeting cards. The ladybugs are cute and the birds are otherworldly beautiful and posed in an unusual way creating an interesting composition.

Yeah. Crazy year is flying on by. Great cards indeed.ReplyDelete
Oh I love these gorgeous cards Brigit, both are beautifully designed, love the little ladybugs, and the card with the birds is exquisite, what wonderful colours, Kate xReplyDelete
Love the ladybugs. The hairspray is an interesting solution.ReplyDelete
These are grand. Especially some buggie loves you:)ReplyDelete
Both cards were incredible. I love the ladybugs because they are so cute, but those birds are incredible. Never thought to spray hairspray in the air to keep the chalk and PP off your fingers and hands. Hope you are feeling good.ReplyDelete
Very pretty. Love the colour palette. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely creation with us at Sparkles Monthly Challenges.ReplyDelete
Your cards are so pretty! I plan on doing a lot more once I get my home office moved to my dining room, and my dining room moved to my kitchen. So? Probably not anytime soon, but we will see.ReplyDelete
Happy Birthday. Hope you celebrated in spite of having to work.ReplyDelete
"Some buggie loves you." That's a very cool line, Birgit!ReplyDelete
