Hey everybody, welcome back to my blog! I hope your Wednesday is going well for you. It's hard for me to believe that Valentine's Day is right around the corner...in just 2 more days! Do you have all your cards and treats done that you wanted to make? Yeah, me neither! Today though, I'm not here to focus on Valentine's Day makes; let's talk about Friendship.
Do you make many (any) friendship cards? I have to admit that I do not...if you've been here awhile, you know my main focus is on Christmas cards! I am trying to branch out some and get more birthday cards into the mix though, so that's good, right?
Well, to get me headed in the right direction for making more friendship cards, I am taking part in a hop today that is all about just that!
This hop was organized by the FABULOUS Courtney Kreeber. In case you don't know who she is, she is a very talented Copic colorist, and the queen of one layer scene cards! Anyway, here is a complete list of all the hop participants, in case you lose your way, or there is a broken link:
Here is the card I made for today's hop:
My apologies for the shoddy picture; I'm really at a loss as to how to make my pictures turn out better! Anyway, I had the SSS Emma Background stamp panel already finished months ago, just waiting for a good card. This seemed like a great opportunity! I had colored the white heat embossed image using Prismacolor colored pencils in red and white on this light tan colored card stock. To add more interest to the panel, I cut a circle directly out of the center. I decided to pop the circle up on dollar tree foam tape for added dimension. The hello die (Recollections) was cut 5 times from red card stock, stacked up, covered in clear Wink of Stella, and coated in Glossy Accents (Courtney's favorite!). The friend sentiment is actually part of the inside sentiment, and I embossed that in white on black.
I also rarely ever finish the insides of my cards with anything more than a sentiment, but since this is a 5.5 x 5.5 square card, I thought I should fill up more of that space. I grabbed the stamp and positioned it all in the MISTI, and stamped it with Versamark ink twice. I quite like how it turned out, and I hope that whoever gets this card will like it too!
So, the next stop in the hop is Dana Joy. You will be wowed by her card; I know it!! I hope you have time to make it all the way through the hop, because I know there is LOTS of wonderful inspiration for you! Thanks for stopping by, and until next time...
Take Care, and God Bless!
