Your package will include clear letter bubble stickers, dimensional stickers, some metal plaques, a good luck stamp and....an Ellison diploma die!
So...as usual I or DDs' will pick a random number and that comment will be the lucky winner. All you have to do is tell me your favorite teacher and why...if you don't have one - that's ok - just leave any old comment (assuming it's a nice one ;-) ). I'll go first...my favorite teacher was my HS Spanish teacher...she loved to have fun, made the class alot of fun...took us on "Spanish" field trips to NYC where we did everything but Spanish related things!!! No wonder I got straight A's (in that class) three years in a row!!!! Learning IS fun!!! ;-)ETA: We will pick a number Saturday evening (4/28) around 8p...I'll post the winner shortly after that!
Moving along to today's cards...in honor of the month of June! A new image from DRS - isn't it cute?!
This first one was done with combo#2 of last weeks color challenge and today's technique challenge to put a little tag on the card...kind of like the tag on jeans...http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=242692I love these colors together. The focal point and bottom border are stamped on watercolor paper and water colored. This sketch is just like my ladybug one from the other day. I used my swirl embossing folder and added square (or diamond!) brads in place of the eyelets. The focal point and tag are popped.
For this one I used up some scraps of patterned paper...
I decided it might be neat to, instead of coloring the main image, fill it in with patterned paper. So, stamped my image on white, then I stamped it on my pp scrap and cut out just the flowers...adhered that piece to my white and then colored the remaining spaces. I colored the lady bug then stamped it again on white, colored that, cut it out and then popped it with half a pop dot! Hard to see in the photo, I know. I adhered two scallop punches together for my mat and since it is the same color as the piece behind it, I used my white gel pen to make an outline, following the ins and outs of the scallop punch.
I added some buttons that I ran thread through and knotted...they are adhered with glue dots and are flush to the flowers. I also added some ribbon to the break between papers...the focal point is popped. I doodled some dots in the corners with my white gel pen as a finishing touch.
Gotta run...dance and soccer night!!!
Good luck and see you soon!
