For my second card, I used the “embossed” side of the panel. Embossing means the design is raised above the panel. The August embossing folder is beautiful embossed (below) and debossed (card #1 above)
I am going to a baby shower and the theme is giraffes.
My friend\’s daughter is having a little girl so I went with a pink and yellow color theme. SSS\’s Stacking animals is one of my favorite stamps sets and the giraffe always makes me smile.
I started by watercoloring a background panel with Rose Madder on Ranger Watercolor paper. I colored the silly giraffe with Copic RV04, Y00, Y06 and Y08 and then die cut.
My idea was to have the giraffe peeking out of a circle die cut window with the pink background. I stamped the Stamping Bella (Baby Carriage) sentiment added some Pretty Pink Posh jewels and paired with a bright pink envelop. This card came together very quickly.
One of my girlfriends is about to become a grandmother and I wanted to make a card for the shower. The baby is a little girl to be named London….so cute.
When I saw this Polkadoodles \”Hanging Out\” stamp , I ordered it that very same day! I\’ve made three cards so far and I love them all. For this card I embossed the image on Bristol cardstock and then used my Tombow Watercolor markers. Since London is a girl, I thought a pink bunny would be appropriate. I then hand striped the A2 base card and added some Studio Katia clear drops. This image is so fun to work with.
I am entering this card in the following Challenges:
Alphabet \”W is for Winged\” Challenge I love owls! We have an owl family that raises their owlets on the column of our front porch every year and we really enjoy watching them. The owl on this card is just adorable.
