Ladies and Gentleman, introducing... Mr. FLUFFY the Owl!
Isn't he CA-UTE????? I love him! If you want to win this super cute lil owl, just leave a comment for me on this blog post by midnight tonite! I'll pick a winner Sunday Morning and announce her right here!
Here's a sample I made with Mr. Fluffy today, using Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge and the Inspiration Challenge on SCS today!
You can't really see it, but I stamped by Distressed Dots background stamp in versamark on the black background and embossed it with clear ep! Isn't Fluffy adorable? I love him:)
Mr. Fluffy is from the kit called "Keeper of my Heart" and this WHOLE kit is really fun! As you can see from my Mr. Fluffy image above, I compared the size to a penny. These images are not small, there big and beautiful and PERFECT for the main images on your cards! Here is another card I made with Tweety Dove from the kit! The sketch is from the Wednesday Unity Challenge!
I stamped the bird on a piece of So Saffron dp and cut it out so the pattern could be repeated, love how it turned out:) That sentiment is from AJ Otto's new kit called "Simply Said" and it has THE best sentiments in it! It's a brand new release, check it out!
Okay, next card is seriously bright, pull out your sunglasses (and blame AJ, Maren, and Jennifer B for these colors...)
I don't really remember what got us started on horrible color combos, but we were talking about what our Monday challenge was going to be this week and one of the girls mentioned Yo Yo Yellow. Then we started getting hot heads and talking about adding Orchid Opulance and Green Galore (I take no blame for this people, it HAD to be one of them!) and the challenge was born, even though we didn't really realize it! Obviously it's not our Monday challenge, but Maren, superstar that she is, said she was going to do this color combo cause she's the illest, so I said..."Oh yeah? Well so am I!" Cause I wanna be Maren when I grow up. So here is the bright, not as disgusting as I thought it was going to be card, lol! The stamps are all from Flirty Flowers! I actually had fun making this card, it really was a true challenge cause I LOATHE these colors, bwhahahah!
Last card for today (I know, do I have a life outside my stampin' room? Yes, I do, it's just not as fun, heehee) is for Lauren Meader's Saturday Sketch Challenge!
Mmmm...doesn't it make your mouth drool for ice cream? My mouth is watering! LOL! I used the "Delectable Delights" kit for this card, it's PERFECT for the sketch! I colored the images in with my Copics and added some white high-lights with my gel pen (I'm just learning to do this, so it might not be perfect, lol!) I got the color combo from that ribbon! I have had it laying around for ever and wanted to use it! This is not a new color combo for me though, as I'm sure you know. Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red have been fave's of mine for awhile! I got a couple people asking me how do I attach my dew drops. I just use a drop of my Mono Multi and those babies stick forevah! I hope it'll work for you! If you don't have Mono Multi, try Cryal Effects or some other type of liquid glue. I also use the Mini Glue Dots by SU! They all work!
Unity Stamp Co. is also hosting a Cards for the Troops drive! If you'd like to be a part of this, please see THIS thread for the details. Basically, you send in gobs of cards (they can be new ones or you can even clean out your stash!) and send them to Unity for distrobution to the troops! There is a HUGE prize for the person who sends in the most cards (they MUST have envelopes to qualify), a one time 50% off shopping spree! It includes everything in the Unity store with the exception of the handles! This drive is for a really good cause, one close to my heart as my dear sweet hubby is over there right now too! He's been gone for 3 months and has 3 months to go! I know how much these guys appreciate getting mail and what better way to support them than to send them cards for them to send home to their loved ones! Remember, these cards are not addressed to the troops, they are for the troops to send home so please don't write in them! Thanks sOOO much for any cards you can send in:)
Okay, that's all I have for today but I'm sure I'll be back tomorrow with my WCMD challenge cards from SCS! Don't forget to leave a comment (by midnite tonite!) to win Mr. Fluffy, he wants to move in with you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
