Fab Friday 41

I have been having a lot of fun with this stamp set - originally designed for the folks "Down Under" in Autstralia and New Zealand.  But when the CTMH consultants in North America saw it (and several others), we wanted them as well.  And Close to my Heart responded and added them to our inventory!

The sketch at Fab Friday was great for this little kangaroo - I used it in a card swap with members of my CTMH team last weekend. 

Here you can see some of the details - I love popping up certain elements of a stamp, so I did that with the center balloon and the cake.  I used my PrismaColor colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits to color most of her - I only have a few alcohol markers and used them to add the yellow and the bold red.

Here's a list of the materials I used to create this card (all CTMH)
Kraft cardstock
White Daisy cardstock
Balloon Ride background paper
Hoppy Birthday (D1597)
Kaboom (S1406) the FUN circle - this is the Stamp of the Month for June
PrismaColor Colored Pencils (not CTMH) and misc alcohol markers
Mounting Foam
Corner Rounder

"Hop" on over to the Fab Friday challenge blog to check out the other cards created with this sketch.

SUNDAY STAMPS- SSC75...It's looking like Spring!

Sunday Stamps had a color challenge this week that I decided to try.  These are not the colors I would have typically used for this project, but as it was going together, I was so glad that I ventured forth into this one.  I used the Deconstructed Sketch #150 - that challenge closed before I could get this done.  But at least I had a good sketch to work with so that I could use this cute little stamp image!
We will make this tag in my June Stamp Clubs.

Here are the products I used - all CTMH
White Daisy, Lagoon, Cotton Candy and Black cardstock
Lollydoodle background paper
White Daisy pigment ink
Lagoon ink
Stamp Sets:
Hope (main image) A1153
Distressed Backgrounds (banner texture) D1544
Girls Rock (leaves) C1538
Damask embossing folder Z1927
Pink Glitter Gems Z1807
Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge - cuts for tag, scallop square and flower
Lagoon Satin Ribbon (retired from Chantilly Cardmaking WOTG)
