First up today is Beth's newest set, called Bella Elephant...which is just sooo stinking cute! Here is what I have for this:
I made her sitting on some crass in the cool sun! LOL! really a super fun and quick card on this one! I watercolored on this one. The sun was made from a die that matched one of our STV kits images way back and then used the faces from one of Claire's sets so sun would be a happy sun! :D
Next up is Claire's newest ...I was suppose to two of her sets but I did a card from each one, lol! so, first one up is Petite Patisserie...
Ok next up is is Claire's Sweet Thing stamp set:
i made a fun and festive creation! for someone's birthday! I watercolored this also, although I kind of ended up covering it up! but swooshed on some background and the cupcake cup? I stamped it onto a sheet of that ink toner for foiling and then cut out the shape..I think scored the lines on it, it looks lots better IRL though! lol.
And the next is Claire's My Island set:
For this card I used some distress paints to do the background behind the black rays of sunshine. I did a bit of distressing on the vellum sheet and the little image. I love how this one turned out! :D
Ok, that's all from me for now! Ready for more awesome inspiration?!! here ya go!
