Rawr Wild Thing!

Needed to make a second card from this sketch, I liked it so much. I can't get enough of these My Minds Eye papers! I just love them! Broke out the felt for added texture. Lots of brads too. Such a fun image to work with. I am really enjoying stamping again after a long break. I think the sketch challenges keep me going.

I am in love with the new dies from MFT! Even though I spent more time punching out the little tiny pieces from all the fancy cutouts than actually constructing the card, I still think they are awesome! This card was made for my nieces confirmation this week. I hope I can get it in an envelope! Paper: PTI Pink, SU gray, MFT perfect panel

Big Ass Flower

dimensional view
Way back in October of 2010, I was lucky enough to attend a card swap at Lonestar Retreat Center with lots of talented stampers all from Splitcoaststampers. One of the very talented ladies swap card was made using this Huge flower from Hero Arts. I just had to have my own huge flower. I asked her what the stamp was called and she said, "I just call it the big ass flower stamp". I laughed and it stuck in my head and now I call it the big ass flower stamp. I found my very own big ass stamp at Achivers, and now they have several styles of big ass flowers.

Stamps: Hero Arts Large flower, Sentiment from Stampabilites
Ink: Momento Black, SU chocolate
