Just two more days until the December release from My Favorite Things is available. So, so close.
Hate for you to be too anxious so how about a couple cards to pass the time? You in? Hope so.
So meet card #1.
So MFT has some new Die-namics called Leafy Greens. If you are a fan of leaf dies, these are for you. You get so many. It would be easy to make something kind of wild and botanical like with them.
I wanted to take a walk on the graphic and bold side so I used one of my favorite ones from the set for to create the black leafy accents for this card. I like how they just kind of move your eyes down and up the card to the sentiment.
That sentiment? Yep. Once again, the new Doubly Amazing Die-namics and Amazing stamp set came out to play. They are good stuff. I highly recommend them.
And meet card #2.
I was feeling a little playful when I made this one. The new Sweet Safari stamp set is so fun. It’s got all these sweet little wild safari animals in it.
I heat embossed the tiger and giraffe onto cardstock and then added some color with watercolors. I purposely went out of the lines. Yes, yes. I did. I wanted them to have a more artsy feel about them… and to also mimic the “color outside the lines” look you see with a lot of professionally printed stationery.
By the way, the hearts were just kind of a for fun thing. I think they (cut with the Tag Builders Blueprints 3) just added fun feel. So often, we use pink and red for love cards. It’s fun to use a non-traditional scheme… and a scheme that a guy might appreciate.
So that’s what I have today.
