CANDY!

TGIF!  It’s a cloudy day here in Southwestern Ontario, but it’s still nice and warm!  🙂  I completed a couple of cards for some swaps over at Lil’ Scrappers! (www.lilscrappers.ca) These swaps are so much fun.  It’s an ideal way to get your mojo going, and to see others’ creations.  The first one is a card I made, and then I sent the products to (the very talented) Tamara, who created a completely different card with the same products! 

Here’s my original card:

I’m really not entirely happy with my card.  But, there are aspects of it that I LOVE – including the Basic Grey, Two Scoops patterned paper!  But, the beauty of this process, is that I got to send similar products to someone else.  In this case, I think Tamara’s card is far superior to mine:

 

Next, I got to make a card with products that Tamara sent to me.  Remember, I didn’t see Tamara’s card until after I made mine.  In this instance, I love them both! 

Here’s Tamara’s:

And, now, mine:

Next, I completed a 3×3 card swap, hosted by my fabulously talented, Lil’ Scrappers DT member, Michy.  For this swap, I completed 10 cards.  11 other participants are doing the same thing.  Michy will be sending each of us 10 DIFFERENT cards from 10 other artists!  FUN!  Here are my cards.  I used some of my little shrink charms for the sentiment!  🙂

So, what do you think?  I like the way it turned out!  Recipe:  Stampin’ up products:  black eyelets; Close to Cocoa stamp ink; cardstock – Kraft card base, shimmery white, and fuschia (that’s not the Stampin’ up name for it…can’t remember what it is lol); markers to colour the image, which I watercoloured using the SU water brush; background stamp is an SU wheel stamp; hemp string is also SU.  Black cs is Bazzill.  Stickles were used for the heart; Uniball Sigma white pen for the dots on the background; shrink plastic charm stamped with a Michael’s acrylic stamp sentiment, using Stazon black ink.  The Hedgie is by Penny Black.  I think that’s it! 

And now, BLOG CANDY!  All you have to do is create a card using any one of the cards within this post as inspiration.  Link me to your creation, and I’ll send you a card kit, which will include some of the Hedgehog stamped images, along with a shrink plastic charm, and some cardstock and pp, and embellies.

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your day!

    I used Tamara’s “A little bird” card as inspiration for my Christmas card.
