A New Adventure

Monday, May 13, 2013

Hey, y'all!  I'm so excited to be here today announcing that I have been asked to join The Craft's Meow Design Team and accepted.
I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to get to be designing not only with this talented team of designers, but also with their gorgeous images and hymn and scripture stamps.  I'm one blessed girl and can not wait to share what's new for May!  It all begins, in just a few short days, on Friday, May 17, 2013.  I hope you'll come along and join us for all the fun!  Until then, how about a little number, boasting a sweet, Sending You Sunshine, stamp set from The Craft's Meow Online Shop, just to say hello to all you TCM lovers?
I started this card by stamping the tree image, in Jet Black ink, on a piece of White cardstock; coloring it in with colored pencils and mineral spirits; piecing the grass from an olive, wavy, patterned paper; and adding a few touches of glitter and Crystal Effects for shine.
I then framed it, above and below, with a trio of color-coordinating patterned papers; ink distressed their combined edges; adhered the resulting piece to the Kraft, cardstock, card face; and machine stitched, with both white-threaded, straight and zig-zag stitches, to anchor it.
The "HELLO", banner sentiment, was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, on White cardstock, colored in with pencils and mineral spirits, hand cut out, and popped off the original hanging banner with foam tape.  A length of pink ribbon, wrapped, around the card face, just below the colored image and embellished with both an aqua, ribbon bow, as well as a yellow, button blossom, laced with a white, chord bow, completes the look.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be blessed!
