Uh Oh, There's a Face in My Flower!

Pin It

Happy Stump Day, Hampers! Hard to believe that we're half-way through another week. I seriously need an extra day or two in my weeks.

Today's card project was created using one of my very favorite color combinations and this fun, vintage-inspired stamp:

I stamped my image on card stock twice using dye ink, then cut out the flower petals, the text block, and leaves of the second image. I colored my images using Copic markers, then layered the second images over the first for some dimension.

I added some SU Filigree brad-thingies, turquoise brads, and a bit of sheer polka-dot ribbon. Finally, I added some sparkle with several different colors of Spica glitter pens. So easy, even I could do it!

For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo ... and for all of the mind-bogglin' product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Soooooooo, as you may recall, Dreamy Jack and Crazy Jill are moving in together ... yup, into the "Self-Cleaning House." If you want to know more about the Self-Cleaning House, clicky HERE.

The delusional lovebirds are spending nearly every spare minute working on their new l'il love nest, so when I saw them last weekend, I asked how the new house was shaping up.

"Good, we've been spending the weekends there so we can start work early. And we've got a lot done: we stained and water-proofed (hahahah) the woodwork and painted all the walls. Oh, and we got started on stripping the kitchen cabinets." Jill told me.

"Wow, you have been busy!" I said.

"Yeah, but all of the fumes have been getting me high." Jill giggled. "I think I'm finally starting to come down though, because the monster in my broom closet wasn't there this morning."

And she doesn't have a broom closet either ...

Thanks so much for swingin' by today ... you rock!

Hi Deb! What a wild card! The colors are waking me up! (well, that's a good thing) I love how you've put this together - it's got a lot of interesting details! The newsprint petals and the filigree thingies with the turquoise brads - awesome! What a great job coloring her face, too!


Joan said...

Very cool card - I love how you've put it together. I haven't used those filligree thingies in a while and I love how you've used a coloured brad instead of a silver one!!!!! Have a great day.
