Okay. I did these two up last nite as part of my Siphoning through the stash challenge. I think they turned out pretty well.
This first one I am using for a swap card the theme being ‘A’ which of course is for Apple. I used some PP from my stash and I have no idea who it is by. The apple image and wording I cut using my Cricut using the Just Because Cards cartridge. Then I added glitter to the the apple to give it a bit more dimension. I ran the card base through the trusty cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder (ha! I got some new CB folders so watch for a new dots folder. I got two new different dot ones and I can’t wait to use them), and then some ribbon from my stash.
The second card I used an image I got from an image swap I did over at SavvynSassy. She looks more blue in this picture (man I take crappy pics) but she’s actually colored in shades of purple to match the paper. I colored her with my copics and then used some scrap PP for the card. I cut it out using my Spellbinders #4. The ribbon believe it or not comes from someplace like the body shop. If you look closely it has their symbol on it, but I thought that it went well with this card so I used it anyway. LOL You’ll also noticed that I did some stitching. My very first time!!! I picked up this little sewing machine at a 2nd hand shop for $10 brand new! It has tonz of thread, bobbins, buttons, needles etc in it. It was a wicked deal! I’m hoping to do more stitching in some of my cards. We’ll see how it goes.
I hope you liked these. As always comments are always welcome!
BTW.. I didn’t do any new cards today as DH and I took DS out for a day at the park and then we went on a cool Cemetery Tour in the city! Great fun! Lots of family time. Tomorrow back to our regular scheduled programming.
