Well, this just so happens to be my first blog post! I started this blog several years ago before I had kids when I had so much more time on my hands to make cards and other projects. I didn't get very far with it (only one post!), so I decided to start fresh once again. This blog certainly won't be updated on a daily basis , maybe not even weekly right now, but I am going to post my creations as they come. Ah, the life of a working mom with preschoolers! I am fortunate to only work part-time and get to spend more than just the weekends with my little ones. I am also thankful that they are now old enough that I can enjoy my passion of card-making and stamping in little chunks of time once again. They even join me sometimes making creations of their own!
I made this card for Your Next Stamp's Color Challenge #60. I love these spring-y colors!
Not only is this my first blog post, but believe it or not, it's also my first time submitting a card for a challenge/contest of any sort. So I'm doubly excited!
I started by cutting my white card base which is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Next, I stamped the clouds and stars (Mama Elephant stamp & die set-Over the Rainbow) at the top of my card base in Stampin' Up Basic Black ink. I then traced over those images with my Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust pen to add some shimmer and soften the black a little. I added some light sponging around the clouds and stars using Stampin' Up Cool Caribbean ink. Next, I adhered my pattern paper, green, and blue cardstock panels to the card. I stamped the "fly away with me" sentiment (Papertrey Ink-Up, Up & Away) using my Kaleidacolor ink pad in Blue Breeze. Lastly, I stamped and diecut the unicorn (Mama Elephant stamp & die set-Over the Rainbow) in SU Basic Black and colored the image using Copic markers. The unicorn is popped up with adhesive foam squares. I finished the card with iridescent sequins (Target $1 Spot) adhered with glue dots.
