I'm writing my second post for today as I'm watching some tennis on the Tennis Channel. After baseball, it's my favorite sport to watch. It's getting pretty late, even here on the west coast, so I'm headed off to bed soon but thought I'd get this written up first.
I mentioned in my earlier post that I got some new Paper Smooches stamps. This card is made with one of the new sets and dies. I've used this week's CAS(E) this Sketch layout by N@ Ali. The inspiration for the colors and theme come from the new Inspired By All the Little Things inspiration photo. This week, Hannelie Bester is guest designing and she truly makes fabulous designs and cards.
The card base is SU heavy weight Whisper White card stock. I stamped the little bear onto X-Press It Blending card stock and colored him with Copics and cut him out with the die. The large red heart is an older SU die cut from Real Red card stock. I placed it on the card and then used my Misti to stamp the greeting because I wanted to stamp it two or three times to ensure that there wasn't halo at the edge of the heart due to the different levels. The tiny red hearts are part of the same stamp set and I randomly stamped them in Real Red and colored over them with a red Spica glitter pen. The bear is popped up with dimensionals and finally the sequin was added for the elements in the sketch. (Plus, I love sequin!)
The inside greeting is super simple and is from another new PS stamp set that coordinates with the first. The little red heart got the same glitter treatment as the ones on the front.
I'm off to work in Los Angeles this next week. Hopefully, traffic will be lighter than normal tomorrow since it's a holiday for many. Unfortunately, not for me. I hope you all have a great week.
