WHEW! I've just finished my third post...in a row! I think I should get a little more organized and get things posted in a timely manner! LOL!
It's time again for the Less is More weekly challenge from Chrissie and Mandi. This being the second week of the month, our challenge this week is a one layer card challenge...and it should be a card with either fur or feathers...hmmmm....
After digging through my stamps for a while, I finally realized that I have relatively few stamps that would qualify for this challenge. So...what to do? Why digi stamps, of course!
This card was made with a digi image from Mo's Digital Pencil. I got it last year when I was inspired by a card that someone had done for the LIM challenge and just had to have this image! Well, I finally got to use it! Colored it with Copics and added a touch of glitter to the bands and ball on the Santa hats...then stamped a sentiment from PTI.
This card was actually the first card I made...and it's the only one that I used a "real" stamp on. The image and sentiment are both from Flourishes, stamped in black Mementos ink and colored with Copics.
This is another digi image I found in my file. I have no idea where I got this image...but it's kinda cute. I colored it with Prisma color pencils and added a touch of stickles. Sentiment is from HA.
This last card is a just for fun card. Our youngest son finished his last final and has graduated with a bachelor's degree (in some kind of interdisciplinary computer science). It's taken him a few years, but he will graduate with high honors...and while getting this education, he's been full-time employed, done a little part-time work for someone else, and taken care of 3 children while his wife has been working some crazy hours! That's dedication...and I'm so proud of him!
I found this image (again, no idea where it came from) and I decided to make a fun card to give to him for achieving this goal. Sentiment was added on the computer and the image was colored with Copics.
What?!...you thought I was finished? LOL!...just wanted to share another layout I finished last week.
This photo is my hubby when he was about 8 or 9 years old. I have no idea where it was taken. Papers are from Echo Park Sunshine collection. The truck on the bottom right is a SU image that was colored with Copics, cut out with a Spellbinder die, and matted on green card stock. The ferns are cut with a MB die. The title work was cut with the Cameo and 4 layers were put together to form a chipboard like letter. I made the little tags with descriptive words using an old typewriter font on the computer, then cut out the flags and backed with paper. The "flagpole" was cut from gold paper and I added a pearl to the top of the pole. The "memories" sentiment was a very old DaisyD rubon that I've had for years. The round tag with his name and the date was made on the computer, then backed with a polka-dotted piece and cut with pinking shears. The "remember" stamp is an old TT stamp. I added a bit of doodling and faux stitching to finish it off. The black border is not on the layout...it was added digitally to keep the edges from fading away.
Now....I'm finished! LOL!...Thanks a million for stopping by. Your comments are ALWAYS welcomed! Until next time...
