2nd card for One Crazy Stamper

Good Morning Peeps.

This is the second card I made for my guest DT Member for One Crazy Stamper.
I used Heartfelt Creations Posy Bouquet Precut Set. You can find this set here at One Crazy Stamper. I love these stamps.. they are made of real red rubber, deeply etched and amazing quality. They are unmounted, but on cling foam. AMAZING images as well. So versatile.

I also used Spellbinders Ovals and Scalloped Ovals. (and they are 20% off right now at OCS) The DP is Momenta. The ink I used is momento Grape Jelly. I stamped the image 2 times and cut some of the little flowers out to pop them up a bit and give some dimension. I then added little half pearls to the centres. I also used a little corner punch from EK Success to soften the edges a little. VOILA'

Come on over to One Crazy Stamper and join in the fun, the theme this month is "Food or Drink" Here are the rules...

The Rules:
You have until the end of the month to join in. Only new projects (no back linking to old projects). You must link us in your post. You may combine with other challenges. Only 5 entries per person each month.

Nov Guest DT Member for One Crazy Stamper

Good Morning,

Well like I said I am baaaaaaaaaaaaack !!! I am so excited to be a Guest DT member for November for ONE CRAZY STAMPER !! Here is the first card I made for them.

I made this card with Art Impressions "Out To Lunch" Love these old gals.. and the sentiment made me think of a lady at work on Weight Watchers LOL ... She to cannot pass up on a piece of cake .. so I found this quite funny .. I will give this card to her.

I colored with copics, used my clear spica pen to add a bit o sparkle and a bit of chalk on the ladies cheeks. The Spellbinders I used were Fancy Tags 3 and deckled rectangles for the main image. I added a little rhinestone for the earing and on the dress. I also paper pieced the table cloth to match the DP, which is from ECHO PARK called Country Drive. I also used some cardstock from Stampin up called Pear pizzazz and Pink Passion.

This was a fun little project and I hope you enjoy.

Stop on over at One Crazy Stamper for all your stamping needs. It is an awesome Canadian company and her shipping is so fast ......Love it !!!!

Have a most awesome day!!!!
