ONE MORE CRITTER CARD FOR EWE!

I could not resist one more little cutie today!  Here is a little fluff and bling for the very LAST critter card I will do in a while and that I will post here!  No more critters. . . I promise!

Check back next week as I’ll have my watercolor cards featured!  These were a blast to make and I actually taught classes for these cards.  I showed my students how to create natural scenes with stamps and watercolor paint. . .it was stamping 101 meets fine arts watercoloring.  My students LOVED the class and said they continued to experiment with the techniques I taught them. 
After that. . .I’ll be featuring CHIPBAORD cards, that are almost ENTIRELY made out of chipboard. . .including the card itself!  They are truely unique and a cinch to make!
Enjoy and have a great Sunday!

FABULOUS FRIDAY!

BOOK RECOMMENDATION:
A Card A Day
I recently bought the book published jointly by Paper Crafts Magazine and Leisure Arts Publication, A Card a Day, and just had a chance to sit down and have a look at it last night.  AMAZING!  THUMBS UP!  I highly recommend it.  The layout of the book is extremely organized with such amazing photography and vivid pictures and quick and easy instructions for each card design.  The index in the back is a rare and wonderful addition too.  You don’t usually get an index in a paper crafting magazine.  It also has added sections for card sketchs, color schemes, organization recommendations, and a detailed supply list in the back for each card design. Best paper crafting book I’ve seen on the market in some time! 
TODAY’S CARD:
 “I Stink You’re Sweet!” 
The last of the Critter series cards this week!  I love cards that have a pun on words or just offer a funny and cheerful sentiment!  I’m always checking out commercials or magazine advertisements for some clever word play that I can scraplift for my cards.  Feel free to share any great sentiments and funny or clever phrases/words that you have put on some of your past cards! 

BLUSH TRICK: I never could seem to be able to get just the right amount of color on the cheeks of my stamped human and animal figures until I learned the powdered blush trick: use a Q-tip and swirl it in your powder blush and then dab or lightly swirl it on the cheeks of your stamped image! Works perfect everytime!

Have a great weekend everyone!

BABY SHOWER INVITATION

TODAY’S CARD:
I’m having a baby shower for a friend in a few weeks, so I came up with a design for her invitation.  The front is a pocket and the tag pulls out so it can be attached with the paper clip to the invitee’s calendar as a Save The Date reminder! 
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
