Using a different shape

Hi again my fellow has been awhile since I have been able to spend time on my blog and I do apologize for that but I have been babysitting family children ages 4 and up since I arrived back home and I am sure you know how they make the day pass quickly.

Now what got me back to posting is due to a sale that I went to this weekend where I bought a set that I had wanted to buy before but thought it was too limited as it was a heart shape. The set I am talking about is SU's Take It To Heart.

I sat and looked at it today and decided to try to stamp it with out the heart line around the edge of it.....I know you can put masking tape on but I was in a hurry so I inked it up then just took a damp kleenex and swiped the ink off the line and stamped. I didn't get as clean an image as I wanted but I was sure I would be able to do something with it sooooo I placed my oval die on and moved it around until I was please with what I could get from the stamped image.

I had not cleaned the heart line off enough so I stamped a little butterfly over and poof..... the heart line disappeared and I think that little guy even added to the image. LOL

OK so here is the card I came up with. I think it could have used some embossing on the white......let me know what YOU think....... I love reading your comments.

To me this card gives the promise of spring in the air as these are one of the first bulbs to show in my garden....even with some snow still on the ground.

Here is my card.... and I hope you like it too.

Colours make a difference

Hello my blogging friends, so glad you took the time to check out what I did today.

I just saw this new sketch and just had to give it a try. I played around with two colours and ended up making two cards from them...... so you can see what a difference colour can make.

I made the first one using SU Daffodil Delight as I was thinking Easter card and I think it looks very cheerful and spring like..... and my friends up north sure want spring to come soon. LOL

The second one I did in SU Rose Red .....just because I have been using a soft pink too much lately and I need a change.

I think this makes a clean and simple card too.

Now take a look at both and let me know which one you like the best. I always love the input.

OK here are the cards. Hope you like them....I love this sketch and will use it again for sure.

Yellow first....just because I did this one first.

And now the Rose one.

I hope you are finding something on my little blog to inspire you ...even if it is just a small thing you see that you can use.

Have a happy carding day.
