Cards 6,7 & 8 oh yeah and blog candy
This card is number 6 of my 14. The basket is Scissor Sisters paper and for some reason looks really dark in this picture and doesn't show the pattern..sorry. The majority of the items on this card are from Eye Lets Etc. They have just started carrying paper flowers which I am dying to get my hands on. The ones I used here are just cheap ones from the Target dollar spot. I used a bunch of eyelets today and added brads to the centers for a little extra bling. I tried to use my crop-o-dile to set some of these eyelets and it just mashes them regardless of how gentle I am with it. My spring-let eyelet setter works so much better for setting eyelets, so I highly recommend this little tool.
Card number 7 is a quick one I put together. The stamp is a Stampin' UP! Sell-A-Bration set called So Many Scallops. The paper is all SU as well. I used markers to color right on the rubbah and then stamped on SU white cardstock. I have tried a ton of different brands of white card stock and no one beats SU! You always get a crisp image and no bleeding...love it!
Card number 8 is my favorite of the day. This cute little chick is another Stampin' UP! image from the set Good Egg. I stamped him on white card stock and then again on a piece of bright yellow mulberry paper. I used a blender pen to write around the edges of the images and then pulled gently where the paper was wet. This makes my little chick look all nice and fluffy. I was going to paper piece the egg shell with soft sky and had it glued on then changed my mind. The bottom half stuck and well...I kinda liked it so there it stays. I then covered the egg shell with Stickles so it sparkles. The pretty patterned paper and eyelet are from Eye Lets Etc. I added a big chunky Memory Makers brad to the center of my purple eyelet for a little more color.
Well that is it for tonight. I will be back tomorrow night with three more! Don't forget to leave your comment for a chance at those blog candy gifts!
