Today while doing my daily inspiration hopping... i came across Shannan Tuebner's blog. Her card is grogeous by the way! Anyhoo - she's taking part in Skipping Stone's Blogs 4 Boobies blog hop! Skipping Stones... i know them! I have some of their stamps that desperately need to see ink... the wheels in my head begin to turn!
Ok, back to the Blogs 4 Boobies hop because you NEEEED to know about it!
You can read the special info at the start of the hop HERE. Basically... all sales from Skipping Stones will donate $2 per stamp set to the Susan G Komen foundation. There is also a release of 2 new sets that are super cute. :D And not only that, but you can BID on cards in the hop from some of the top notch crafting girls in blogland and those winning bids will also go to the Susan G Komen foundation. Pretty cool huh?!
So i looked at the clock... and thought... yeah i have time before preschool gets out. Mind you i have other things i'm supposed to be doing, but shhhhhh. :D
Also in my daily inspiration with my coffee i saw that the Color Throwdown color challenge is one of my all time favorite color combos. Um... how can i NOT play?!
So i got to work on this card.. i wish i had paid more attention to the Blogs 4 Boobies hop because there is a sketch challenge issued. WOOOPS. Oh well. :D I still like my card. :D
I comboe'd 2 stamp sets for this card. The dandelions, extra seeds and sentiment are from Dandelion Dreams (you know i cant resist a dandelion set!). The butterfly is from a wonderful heartfelt set called Healing Wings.
Here's a detail shot. I stamped the butterfly on a scrap piece of paper, colored it using copics (R81, R83, R85, R89, N2 & N4) Then i cut it out and set it aside.
On my main piece of cardstock for the cardfront, i stamped the dandelions in grey ink and then used the separate seedling to stamp some fluffs scattering the sky.r Inside the seedlings and main dandies i used a silver glitter pen from gelly roll. Then i stamped my sentiment in Rich Razzelberry ink and sponged the edges.
Then i took the butterfly, bent it back a bit from the "body" and glued just the body part to the top of one of the dandelions.
One more detail shot... I decided the card didnt look "done" enough after i put the ribbon down along the bottom so i added some extra bling by using pink rhinestones and dotting all along the edge with the same silver glitter gel pen.
And that completes my card!
Be sure to check out this spectacular blog hop... maybe bid on a card or 2? Buy yourself a fabulous new stamp set (i didnt mention this... but Skipping Stone Design stamps are clear stamps of great quality and a great price point!) You really need to check them out!
Have a great day!!!
