PYL Blog Hop Happy Hello Card

Hi all - it's the last day of the Stampendous Pink Your Life blog hop - I hope you've enjoyed it! Today I have a really simple card to share with you using one of the newest releases - Whisper Sunflower.

I simply stamped the Sunny Tile repeatedly in yellow ink then added a strip of twill ribbon. Centred on the card is the Whisper Sunflower image coloured with Graph-It markers, cut out and added with 3D foam. I actually stamped the image on the card blank as well, for placement and so I could add the grey shading before sticking the cut out image in place. A simple greeting finishes the card.

Thanks for visiting today

PYL Blog Hop Christmas Tag

Hope you are enjoying our celebration of Pink Your Life stamps this week at Stampendous. I've used one of the Christmas releases today to create a seasonal tag. I don't like a lot of Christmas stamps but this Santa is just adorable isn't he?

Here's how I created it:
1 Repeatedly stamp the snow background with Versamark onto a kraft tag, emboss with Sparkle Puff embossing powder.
2 Press a Versamark pad through the stencil that comes with the snowflake set. Emboss the area with Sparkle Puff. Stamp, emboss and die cut another snowflake and place it offset over the other snowflake.
3 Tear a scrap of kraft card, dab the top edge with Versamark and emboss with Sparkle Puff. Glue to the tag so that Santa can 'stand' on it.
4 Colour Santa with Graph-It markers and ad him on 3D foam. Use a Stabilo All pencil to add some shadowing around him.
5 Rub the edges of the tag with white paint and finish with a bow.

Thanks for stopping by!
