THANK GOD…IT’S FRIDAY!!! I don’t know about you all, but it has been one long week here at the Kerin house! The boys are finally settled back into the school routine, and I am slowly getting back into the habit of stamping during the day again.
Speaking of stamping, I wanted to let everyone know that I’ve stepped down from the TGF Design Team, so my Fridays are open for whatever I want to showcase. I love Marie, Jessica, all of the Farmers, and all of the fans at TGF…but I really felt the need to step down since my mojo and heart just weren’t in it anymore. I will still be using their FABULOUS images, and I might even be participating in a few of their challenges. LOVE YOU, LADIES…and thanks for being such a wonderful design team!!!
Now for today’s card for yesterday’s BLD Challenge #2 at the By LORi Designs’ Blog…a Color Challenge (Red, Saffron, Chocolate, Kraft). Once again, I have combined three different images using Photoshop Elements 8.0 (you can check out my Video Tutorial to see how it’s done). I used “Wagon Tales PJ Katie”, “Puddle Jumpers Winter Landon”, and “Puddle Jumpers Party Time Piper” to create the focal panel.
Once I saved the new image, I printed it out and colored it all with Copic Sketch Markers. The panel was cut out with a Nesties Die, and I added a sentiment panel using one of the sentiments from the new “Little Talks 2” set. I paired the completed image with some patterned papers from SU’s Bella Rose and Tall Tales Designer Series Paper packs along with some Kraft and Chocolate Cardstock. After adding some Stitching, a Button with Twine, Silver Nail Heads, and several Dimensionals the card was complete. Whatcha think?
That’s it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to head over to the BLD Blog to play along with this week’s challenge! I’ll see you back here tomorrow with a peek at some of my new favorite stamps! Until then…
