Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday :) Well, luckily the big snow storm that hit the east missed us (literally by just a few miles), but it sure is cold here. I'm so ready for warmer weather :)
Well, today is Tuesday, which means it's another challenge day over at Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart. Our challenge this week was to use any of Susana's own stamps from her own stamp line, Susana Loves Stamps as a charm element on our card. I had so much fun with this project, I decided to do two cards :)
For my first card, I used this wonderful Rubber Romance stamp, Vivian as my main image. I inked her up with Memento Black Ink, stamped her onto PTI cardstock, and colored her in with copics. I paper pieced her purse, the shoe boxes, and her dress with paper from DCWV's new La Creme paper line (this paper is gorgeous and very elegant). All cardstock is SU (Basic Black and Very Vanilla) and all design paper is from the La Creme stack. I added a cream ribbon and then I used one of Susana's stamps, the High Heel as my charm accent. I stamped it onto Very Vanilla cardstock and used my SU 1 1/4 circle punch to punch it out. I placed it under the ribbon to look like a charm.
For my second card, I used Melanie as my main image. Again, all cardstock is SU (Basic Black and Very Vanilla) and my design paper is from DCWV's La Creme stack. I paper pieced her dress and shopping bags and colored her with copics. I added black rhinestones to the corners of the image, added a black ribbon, and used the high heel again as my charm element. What do you think?
I'd love to hear what you think of my cards. Make sure to check out the store blog, Follow Your Heart to see the amazing creations of Susana's DT. Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with another project.
