Happy Monday to you all. Normally this is the time for Sunshine Monday, however, Sunshine & Giggles is sponsoring this weeks Midnight Madness challenge so I will be playing along with them and will have my Sunshine card for you tomorrow. And speaking of Midnight Madness one of my cards today is for last weeks challenge but first I thought I would share some thank you cards I've made.
Last week was my baby's 7th birthday and he had a Star Wars themed birthday party. His invitation had to have something from Star Wars but for his thank you I found the cutest digital image from a company called Wink, Wink Ink. It still goes along with that whole space theme thing. I had intended this card to go along with Mojo Monday's sketch challenge but realized I had veered way off course. This is my first hinged circular card. So easy but so time consuming when you have to put together 6 of them!
Isn't he just the cutest little alien!! Do you know how many sites I looked at before I found him, LOL! I found a forum by Karen Pullen and she lists several digital stamp companies and that is how I found Wink, Wink Ink. What a very useful tool.
You can find her forum here. This image is called, appropriately, little green man. I colored him with my copics and used my white gel pen on his eyes. I purchased this dp eons ago and have no idea who it is by as it's not marked but it goes great with our
Ok now for my sketch challenge. This card contains another first for me- Flower Soft. I just love the look and it's relatively easy to use. As I said the sketch was provided by Midnight Madness.
So how do you decide what papers you will use? I designed my whole color scheme around the large green button on my card. I came across it in my bag of buttons while looking for yellow buttons and decided to leave it out. It was perfect for this weeks sketch design.
Isn't that a great button! It came from one of the big bags from Foofala and I actually found papers in my stash that were a perfect match. I don't know who they are by-again not marked but all cardstock is from Bazill. I accented my pieces by sewing around the edges. My stamp is from Lockhart Co. This is th first time I inked it up and I love it! The flowers in this stamp are actually tulips but I thought I would give my flower soft a try. I love the dimension it adds.
What a cheery little window on another cold winter day!
Be sure to join me tomorrow as I join in on another Midnight Madness challenge.
