Critter Card

I used a stencil to make the background trees and a favorite stamp from Ampersand Press. I stamped with black onto grey paper and used the very lightest of grey and brown Copics and a white pen for detail. 

All too familiar...

The challenge is to make a card for a teenaged boy...


Stamp sets used: "Distressed Lower" and "LOL" by Close to My Heart.

I simply stamped on a piece of notebook paper and let my son carry it around in his backpack for a day. 

(Jut kidding, but not really.)

Through thick and thin...

Here's a thin card.. Just right for our heroes to send home to a loved one.

And the juicy version to send to any hero... 

Can you spot the difference? The diet version has one less layer, and no dimensional elements. The other has a fat pocket embellishment, thicker "dots" in the flower centers and real buttons.

To make lighter versions, use punched paper centers and paper die / embossed buttons. 

Used: SU petite petals, DCWV paper, sentiments by Hero Arts.

The little white scalloped/embossed squares are more paper "coasters" that I picked up in party supplies somewhere.

VCMP Weekend!

I'm blogging from my phone :) in an attempt to post my entries for the VCMP!! 

Here's my cards for today. I'm going to have to work backwards from Sunday, in between chores.... 

My first for this weekends' sketch. 

Tiddly Inks digi, DCWV HarvestGathering may stack, Darcie embossing folder, Copics for coloring and a Dazzles sentiment. I'm already loving fall colors. Is it too soon??

I can't figure how to link in this app.. So if you'd like to play along with the Virtual Catdmaking Party for Operation Write Home, head on over to their blog, Stars & Stamps. Http://
