You know every respectable bovine has a shawl to wear. Right, Bossie? Bossie comes from Creative Vision Stamps' Foilable "Animals" package. Our girl here is wearing a very fashionable shawl over her gorgeous shade of blue foil!
This little shaker card - that needs a whole lot more flies in it - features images/sentiments from Creative Vision Stamps' "What Bugs You" clear stamp set.
As promised, here is another card using the "Beary Merry" set from Creative Visions Stamps. This time, I focused on the trees, rather than the bears.
This card, created with Creative Vision Stamps' "Beary Merry" set, reminds me a bit of a chapter from one of the Mary Poppins books by P. L. Travers. For those of you who've only seen the movie musical, you haven't experienced the real Mary Poppins. She is certainly magical, but she is also self-absorbed and prone to teaching scary lessons to misbehaving children. Nonetheless, I love the magic and have read all the books more than once.
The chapter I reference has to do with putting stars up in the sky. Here's a paragraph from the book:
"Then Jane and Michael saw a most amazing sight. As soon as she arrived at the top of her ladder, Mrs. Corry dipped her brush into the glue and began slapping the sticky substance against the sky. And Mary Poppins, when this had been done, took something shiny from her basket and fixed it to the glue. When she took her hand away they saw that she was sticking the Gingerbread Stars to the sky. As each one was placed in position it began to twinkle furiously, sending out rays of sparkling golden light."
Another fabulous Foilable from Creative Visions Stamps!
Back with another hit from Creative Vision Stamps' latest release. "Pet Monsters" is a fun mash-up - literally, in the case of that zombie raccoon! - for cute Halloween cards. For this card, I colored the two images with Copic markers and attached them to the Halloween sentiment. I didn't have a spider web die, so I opted for this one with the boxes.
Whoo-hoo! There are a lot of fantastic new stamp sets at Creative Vision Stamps; it's an incredible new release of stamps and Foilables!
Better late than never, right? This card uses the eclipse technique. I think the way to do the technique successfully is to go slowly and plan. Definitely start with the middle letter to better define center so your letters are balanced across the card. I sponged the edges of the letters in yellow to help them stand out a bit from the background paper.
You know I had to work in some Wink of Stella on the butterfly, which is popped up with two layers of mounting tape under the wings and one layer under the body.
Mom and I went to see "Dixie's Tupperware Party," which was hilarious and darned naughty! Five out of five stars! (And actual Tupperware can be purchased from Dixie!)
It's Just Me!
