Road Map to Happiness by Jenny Gropp

Gorgeous card from Jenny Gropp!

Jenny used Road Map #J15058 and Warm Fuzzies #CL492

 
 

 

 
 I used my Mini Mount to stamp. This is perfect for those larger stamps and really helps me get a better stamped image. I always stand up when I use the rocker type blocks... I do think it gives me more even pressure.  You can see I stamped the image twice and did a little paper surgery with one image, cutting out the inside using an Xacto knife.
 
 
At first I started coloring trying to follow the lines weaving in and out. I soon gave up and just went for a color blocking look.
 
 
 On the inside of the cut out portion I did use a Memento Black Marker to edge... just giving the edges a little extra definition to help them stand out. Foam tape raises the top image up slightly to create the window. The little white dots I embellished with Viva Clear Gloss Gel so they look like little raised glass pearls.
 
 
On the inside I stamped a simple sentiment from the Warm Fuzzies Clear set. Finished card is 4" x 5 1/2" and opens tent style.
 
Have a great day!

Sweet Bunnies by Karen Amidon

SWEET bunny card by Karen Amidon that is not only good for Easter but would also be great for any Springtime occasion.

Dies used: Impression Obsession-DIE257-D Easter Joy, DIE268-Y Floral Panel Cutout, Die277-E Egg Bunny Trio

 
From Mondays Farm Girl to yesterdays Chickens and Roosters,  now we have Egg Bunnies! This is a sweet Egg Bunny Trio that has been highlighted with Pearlescent Chalks and a little Wink! I have used the inlayed technique on the Floral Panel Cutout and Easter Joy. 
 
 
 Have a great day!
