Basket Full of Love
I've been making cards this week. Though not the colorful, whimsical ones I long to do...rather, the 47 Kindergarten report cards I spent my every available moment on during the week. I am happy to say I am finished, and now I am faced with a guilt-free three day card-making weekend! Yahoo!
To make this card, I reached for this almost forgotten image I have from Art Gone Wild, called "Puppy Basket". Too cute! I stamped it with Marvy black dye ink onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers. I cut around the image with a Nestabilities oval die.
The layout of this card was inspired by the current Mojo Sketch Challenge #173. Brown cardstock frames various pieces of patterned paper from Making Memories, Lasting Impressions and The Paper Studio. The scalloped brown oval was cut from a Nestabilities die, and the computer-generated sentiment was cut with a Cuttlebug die. A white gel pen was used to dot around some of the panels. Dog paw brads and red heart brads embellish this card, along with a sheer red ribbon with white dots.
No clue as to how I forgot about having this adorable stamp, but I did. It was hidden behind some other stamps on one of my shelves...and I thought it would make a great Valentine. So, I will submit this card for the challenge, Forgotten Stamp Friday #6.
Stay tuned for more cards. I have a couple of birthday cards I must make, and I still haven't forgotten about my BCS series...just got a little sidetracked and disgruntled that Auburn won on Monday.
As always, thanks so much for visiting my blog. I truly appreciate you taking a look at my work.
