SOME CARDS

I fancied doing some Challenges yesterday and having a browse through my stamps and images to see what took my fancy and fitted with the challenges.

My first one uses a new set of stamps from PINK & MAIN.     The set is called " FurEver " and you get a cat, a dog and a teddybear. You have to buy the stamps for the faces separately - they have about 4 different packs.

My backing is a new set of papers which were a Freebie from FAR FAR HILLS and this set is gorgeous and is called ' Spring Day '.
The weather is lovely here - all the birds are singing and the trees budding and the Almond blossoms are amazing. I really felt like Spring yesterday, so I used these lovely sunny papers.



I stamped my cat onto a piece of one of the background papers and made a heart to stamp the sentiment. The cat stamp was enhanced using Spectrum Noir markers for the shadows etc. and I added some white pen for eye shine as they looked a bit 'blank' left as they were.



My second card features digi images from SCRIBBLES BY SANDY and I have used " Hang 10 Brr " and  " Dog House ".


Rather than surfing the sea, he is having a go at snow surfing LoL   :-D
I don't have any of that white puffy stuff people use for snow, so I went with thick glitter. It looks ok and gives a real good frosty look on the ground :-)
The images were coloured with Spectrum Noir markers and Brr was popped up with some foamies.
The backing card was some from my stash and I used a Silhouette cutting file for the icicles.



I'll be back a bit later. Thanks for popping in to look xxxx

  8. Great cards! I love how the cat matches the paper and you were so right to put the white dot in. It gives him extra personality. The penguin on the doghouse is adorable and a great show of your comedic side. The snow is a perfect touch of glimmer. Good luck!
