Well, today at Convention we will start out with General Session! It is SO energizing to go in, hear the band/disc jockey playing music…people up and dancing and FRANTICALLY swapping cards! I only brought along about 20 for general swapping, but I always have a good time. Later this afternoon will be some classes. I always learn a lot and love hearing how others run their business.
This week’s Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps card is from Sweet Dreams stamp set. I love the look of bliss on this owl’s face! Relaxing is always a good thing!
I colored the owl and tree branch with my Copic markers! I’m having a lot of fun experimenting with these. I wanted a few more leaves than the stamp actually has, so I stamped the branch again and cut out just the leaves. I added them to the branch with dimensionals.
The Designer Paper is from Stampin’ Up!’s Good Morning Sunshine. I paper pieced the hat with the same paper as the background. The base is Pacific Point cardstock with a layer of Whisper White. I used a couple buttons on the 5/8 White Satin Ribbon, and tied the center one with linen thread. Relax was stamped with Basic Black and punched with the Large Oval punch, layered on a Pacific Point Oval Scallop punch and then the Lots of Tags Sizzix die.
Tomorrow is Bloggers’ Challenge…stop by for a color challenge of Soft Suede, Crushed Curry and Old Olive!
