For You

This stamp set was blog candy received from Christina Hor, Memories Crafter, offered at the time of the Coffee Lovers Winter/Holiday Blog Hop, along with many other goodies.  I selected this stamp set to use for The Outlawz Challenges for "Monday Greetings" because the little girl "Darcie" holding the bird was just right for releasing the bird to his home in the tree branches.  

The tree and frame was a die cut from Cricut Design Space, CTMH Artbooking, reversing the tree to the opposite side and sizing for 5 x 5 card.  A layer of green glitter paper was added to the back of the tree leaves.  Cut the larger leaves also with the green glitter paper and rolled and glued on to the tree to give the leaves dimension.  The trunk was cut from design paper and glued to the tree.  Placed another layer of design paper in back of the Tree Panel and then adhered to another layer of lagoon cardstock.  

The Stamp Set used is Darcie's Heart & Home...stamped Darcie and pup with black ink, colored with ShinHan pens and fussy-cut adhereing a second layer.  Stamped the little girl a second time in the Design Paper, fussy-cut dress and pieced the dress on Darcie.  Pups was adhered with 3D thin foam tape, and the little girl was adhered with the regular 3D foam tape to show more demension. Sentiment was stamped on card and liquid glass was put on her shoes.

Hi Sue! What a lovely surprise! You know I am having a good laugh at myself right now. I just commented on this beautiful sweet card of your over at Outlawz and didn't remember I got you this sweet girl and dog stamp set until right now. Oh my memory must be slipping and I'm still young too. Haahaa.

Okay, back to your card. I just love the pop out of the leaves. Such a simple way to add beauty and dimension to a card. Just LOVE the glitter! And oh yes, haahaa, I just adore how you colored the little girl and dog. They are just too cute!

I'm so glad you enjoy your gift and what a beautiful card you made with it too. Thanks so much for sharing and for the good laugh at this early morning (3AM)! Now, I think I better head on to bed. Wishing you a lovely start of the new week Sue.

Hugs, Christina
