Yes...I slept (more or less) and I'm back, revived and in a hectic scramble to get my online class homework done and posted. Another rainy day...getting closer to back-to-work...must play while I can.
My trio of cards here were inspired by the lessons on Day 3 of Stretch Your Stamps 2
First up - Star Shine, where I repetitively stamped *sparkle and bright* from my NBUS Winnie and Walter Big, Bold and Fun set on the star in a deep yellow,then inked it with two shades of lighter yellow. Add a speech-bubble transformed into a cloud, some blue sponged stars, a blue-ink stenciled background, a bold sentiment and voila...a happy little card. I like it.
ETA: I only just discovered (Aug. 29) the AWESOME *Join in and win* gallery over at Winnie &Walter's blog, and since this amazing sentiment is a W&W stamp, I am sooooo heading over to the party! Yayyy.....
My second card features a PS *Hello* sentiment white embossed on the butterfly die, inked with light pink and coral, set atop my TH lines stencil (which was far more cooperative than my previous attempt at water-colouring with it...sheesh!), and a die cut sentiment. I used sequins...again!! I like this one, too.
This little number is a repeat of the techniques above, using Simon Says *baby* and *sweet* stamps and the baby die. Pink sponging, pink heart stencils...done.
Another *like*, which I'll be entering at Paper Crafting Challenge #16~ Baby and CAS on Sunday #40~ Rock-A-Bye Baby.
Here's my Debby Hughes' inspired trio, posing together, which I'm adding to Iron Craft Challenge 3: Inspiration 3~ Muses for Iwona...
