Happy New Year!
2015 was such a whirlwind...so much wonderful change it's hard to remember everything that happened. But I'm hoping for an even better 2016! I hope everyone has had a wonderful couple of weeks celebrating holidays and relaxing with family.
We have a fabulous new release to share with you today at Sami Stamps - Fuzzy Cup Friends!
I got to work with the sweet little Cup Bunny image:
leopard print stamp from Hero Arts for Christmas and I couldn't wait to use it. I thought a monochromatic stamping of it would work well for this card. The base is a piece of Surf Blue cardstock from Simon Says Stamp and I used Soft Navy for the stamp.
I cut a piece of vellum just slightly smaller than the card front so that it muted most of the background but not all of it, so it seems like I have a border around the outside of the card. I cut out a stitched scallop circle along with a thin frame to go on the inside, and then inked that little frame with the Soft Navy as well.
Then worked on my image. I colored up the bunny with my pencils to keep him super cute and soft. I really wanted some stripes on the cup but Matthew also bought me a laminator for Christmas so I could start foiling things! So I added a few silver foiled stripes to the cup!! So cute! I'm still learning how to get it just right, so there are a few patchy spots in the foil...but I'll figure it out!
I almost forgot about our new challenge starting today as well to add sparkle...but good thing I can't seem to make a card without some sort of glitter on it :) So I added a stripe of silver glitter paper around the image frame and then finished the whole thing off with a super cute sentiment from the Talk Bubbles set from Simon Says and a few sparkly dots of glossy accents.
I hope you will stop by Sami Stamps to see the rest of this release and to join in our fun challenge!!
Thanks for visiting!! <3
