Studies in Green


     I have two cards to share this morning.  My first is for Simon Says Stamp, and is an Anything Goes Challenge.  I decided to case a sweet embellishment I saw over on Pinterest.  This little tutu is created using the SU! Tab punch and one of the petals from the SU! Blossom Petals Builder punch.  You create the neck with a circle punch.  The skirt was punched from green vellum and I scratched in some lines with my piercing tool.  The rest of the card was created with scraps, gems, ribbons, unknown stamps, except for the sentiment which is from Clear Dollar Stamps.



     My second card is following the sketch over at the Repeat Impressions Blog.  I needed a retirement card for next week, and when I saw this stamp with the hammock, I knew it was a perfect choice.  I only own this one stamp set from them, but boy did that work out!  I stamped the image in Rich Cocoa, colored with Copic Markers, sponged with Pool Party and Old Olive ink from SU!, and cut it out with a SB Postage Stamp die.  The banner was created with olive glitter card stock, and the designer paper is from Wild Asparagus. The sentiment is from the Congrats! set from SU!.


     Phew, I am sure glad I was able to get this loaded.  If I disappear, know that I am having computer trouble.  My computer just didn't want to wake up this morning.  It is kind of like me, LOL!  Thanks for popping by, and have a great day.

Oh how nice is that tutu? I love the line work you did on it also. Your second card is just perfect for the retiree. I have to make one for a friend of out and I want to do something with the hammock on it. I may just have to case this one of yours. Enjoy your upcoming weekend.
