Eggstra Spectacular

Oh my goodness!  I've been a BAD blogger!  Really, until today I hadn't felt my mojo.  But, I know the "cure"…get in my studio and start copying something, then tweaking it until it does come back.  As of right now, I've made 3 new cards!  I'm very happy with myself!  lol!  I'm also getting ready for my Retreat weekend and I wanted to prep myself mentally on what I need to take with me.  Of course, I always take WAY too much!


So, here is one of the cards I made this morning.  Literally, it took about 5 minutes!  But, I'm very happy with it!



A very sweet card, don't you think?  Here are the details:

  1. The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Smoky Slate, folded in half, then embossed with Delicate Dots folder on the front.
  2. I cut a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 piece of Whisper White and stamped the darling little lamb from Stampin' Up!'s Eggstra Spectacular stamp set towards the top with Black Stazon Ink.  I watercolored with Smoky Slate, Pool Party, Crisp Cantaloupe and Summer Starfruit.
  3. I layered it on a 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 piece of Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock.
  4. Then I cut a 1 x 3 3/4 piece of Sweet Sorbet Designer Paper and used the FUN Fringe Scissors on it.  I adhered it behind the Crisp Cantaloupe.
  5. I wrapped the Pool Party Twine (Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack) around three times and tied a bow.
  6. I placed everything with Stampin' Dimensionals in the center of the base card.


See…I told you it was VERY quick!  Hope YOU have a great "stampin" day!

Nice to know that I'm not the only one who takes tooo much when I go stamping!!!    Yes, your card is very sweet, adorble…I really love our Delicate Dots folder and feel it really adds lots to our designs.   Your choice of the Smoky Slate for your background is wonderful and love the little lamb in the same color!   Wonderfully simple card…that does not look like your mojo is missing at all!

What a cute card. I really like the addition of using the fringe at the bottom of the little ewe. I think I will be casing this one. Little ones ( or big ones) would love to get this card!
