Out Of The Box

I made this for a friend's birthday (I am sure she has gotten it by now so it should be safe to post this). This is kind of an out of the box for me. I don't tend to use these colors very often because I never feel like what I do with them works well. If that makes any sense.

I used some Not Quite Navy(SU) and Bravo Burgundy(SU) with some light cream color cardstock. I sponged around the cream with Close To Cocoa (SU) along with stamping the sentiment. I used burgundy ribbon and round button as well as a green heart button. I can not remember who the papers are by, but I had bought them long ago at Hobby Lobby. I used a black marker to make dots around the circles.

Sorry for the pic quality.

I Created Something Today

I actually took a couple hours in my craft room today and made these 2 cards that I have been wanting to make for a long time now. These cards were based on designs I saw from Dawn G (sorry I can not remember the last name).

3D card made with the SU scallop punch for the body of the lady bug. 1 inch circle punch for the head. Regular hole punch for the antenna. Pencil eraser and black ink for the dots. The stamped Hello and Friend are from the Michaels $1 bin.

Here is a different view to show the bugs body better.

I love how this card turned out. Again I used the SU scallop punch for the faces. All the black mouths are cut from 1 1/4" circle punches. The white eyes and Elmo's nose are maybe 1/2 inch circles?? I used a flower center from the Walk in my Garden cricut cart set at 1 1/2" I think. The black of the eyes are a regular hole punch. Cookie is also the center of the flower at 2" and cut with a scallop scissor for a 'bite'. Birds nose and Oscars eyebrows were free hand cut. Oscars tongue is the tip of the SU window punch. I think the stamped words are from an SU set called Happy Everything.
