I hadn't planned on posting additional cards for the Less is More challenge this week, but I finished these cards today and wanted to share them. I can't however bring myself to make two separate posts...sorry Chrissie and Mandi.
These cards are for our new grandson (Pierce) who will be arriving on October 21. He might be our 17th grandchild, but the anticipation of his arrival is just as great as it was for the first 16. There's nothing sweeter than a precious little one! My daughter in law will be having two different baby showers, so I needed two cards (I was thinking of asking her to just give me one card back and I'd give it to her twice, but my daughter told me that was tacky! LOL!). So that's why there are two baby cards for Pierce.
These cards are both 4x4 inch cards. For this first card, I stamped the bear (a very old PSX stamp from my stash), then cut out a mask to cover him so that I could stamp the gingham background. The background stamp is a Papertrey Ink stamp. After stamping the bear and the background, I printed the sentiment on the card...rather risky, but it worked out fine for both cards. I colored the bear with Copics and added a tiny blue bow.
This second card is also 4x4 inches. The sentiment is computer generated. I stamped the giraffe after printing the sentiment, then stamped him again on card stock, colored him with Copics and cut him out and popped him over the stamped image. The doodled lines were to cover up a boo-boo, but I think it turned out okay with the doodled lines.
This card is also for the One Layer Wednesday challenge from Susan at Simplicity. Our challenge is to COLOR IT! Stamp an outline image and color it using any coloring medium you want: colored pencils, watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons, paint, Copics, Bics, Sharpies, markers of any kind, or your kid's box of Crayola crayons. Doesn't matter...just COLOR IT! Well, I colored the little giraffe (I hope the fact that he's pop dotted doesn't disqualify this card as a one layer card!)
Thanks so much for stopping by! If you've already visited the first post, and you've come back again...bless you...and Thank You for your visit and for all your fabulous comments! Until next time....
