I know we will get through the next 7 months (or so!) and I KNOW that all of your prayers and well wishes are helping. Please continue to keep my kids in your prayers as the reality slowly sets in for them.
Over the past week, I chose not to spend any time blogging but I did make a few cards while my husband was out and about and the kids were in school.
Here is a card I created for the Moxie Fab Gradient is Radiant challenge. I wanted to represent gradient color in a different way than using cardstock or ink....so the gradient part of my card is the fun sun I created with ribbons. I selected ribbons in white, yellows (3) and orange to create the sunbeams.
I used Warm Winter Wishes set from Gina K Designs on this card.....and I played off the snowman and "You melt my heart" stamps by creating a fun sun to go with them.
I chose to stamp the snowman from the set without his hat and so I just rubbed the ink off the hat after I inked the stamp up and then drew in the top of his head after I stamped. EASY. I used a piece of ribbon for his scarf (just adhering it right over the stamped scarf!)
I stamped the sentiment in two colors---easily done by inking the whole stamp in pumpkin ink and then taking a black marker and going over the "You" and "my heart" part.
Finally, I stitched the little hills for some more fun texture and added some orange stickles to his carrot nose.
Materials used: Stamps-Warm Winter Wishes (Gina K Designs); ink-memento black, black stampin write marker (SU!), pumpkin ink (SU!); cardstock-white (Gina K Designs), iced cobalt (Prism); various ribbons (SU, May Arts!, Offray); sewing machine; circle punch (SU!); Spellbinders scalloped rectangle die; Cuttlebug (Provocraft); corner rounder punch (Creative Memories); Copic markers; orange stickles (Ranger); stapler.
Hope it makes you smile!
