This is a card I made Saturday morning for the Inspiration Challenge. I just love this new set. I've always loved 2-step stamping. I'm going to have a good time with this set.
We had an uninvited guest at the bird feeder last night. The picture is blurry since I couldn't get very close, nor did I want to! LOL This was a skunk with the white on his head and body but NOT on his tail. Hopefully this won't be an every night meal stop for him.
I made a few cards while Emily was here last night. Take a peek. Isn't this Inky Antics Giraffe just darling? I colored him with copic markers then used my close to cocoa ink on the summer sun card stock. I ran it through the cuttlebug with the giraffe embossing folder. I added giraffe ribbon and two rhinestones that looked like giraffe spots. I added grass for the giraffe to walk on too. :)
This was shiny cardstock which I stamped on with brown SU ink which is permanent. I stamped on glossy cardstock. Next I dried it with a heat tool. Next I colored the train lightly with makers and wiped most of the color off. Then I used the Tim Holtz distress ink pad, linen to drag across this image. I ripped the edges and added ink to the edge of the image. Next I took a piece of crumb cake and ripped it so it would be a bit bigger than the image panel . I added ink to the embossed card which was saffron based. Lastly I added the large hole eyelets and ribbon.
Sarah and I went shopping today for 2 1/2 hours. It's only by the grace of God that I lasted that long. We went to Plato's Closet and Forever 21. Sarah found lots of clothes at Forever 21. I was so happy that it was a fun and successful trip. When we got home I asked Sarah to model her clothes since I didn't see them at the store.
I just found out that Forever 21 Has John 3:16 written on the bottom of their bag! Cool huh?
It's time for sleep, I have a busy day tomorrow.
Blessing from today: I lasted the whole time we shopped and I don't have to take her out again for a long time! :)
