I just finished this card that I made for the Humble Artists swap that I participate in every 2 months. The guidelines for this month's swap were to make a 6x6 or 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card that needed to have an animal, an embossed image, at least 5 layers, a background stamp and at least 2 embellishments. I believe I have met all requirements. Now, I just need to make 4 more and send them off!! Vicki has a gorgeous card that she made for the Humble Artists swap also, so go check out Vicki's blog to see it! I have the real thing sitting right next to me and it is even MORE gorgeous in person!! Thanks Vicki!!!
I just can't get enough of this little bunny from CTMH's Bunny Love or the CTMH Creative Basics Emporium Collection!! I embossed the bunny with Versa Mark, Staz on and fine detail embossing powder on watercolor paper. I colored in with Bamboo, Desert Sand and Cocoa then used a blending pen to blend all. The 1/2 circles are Circle Window Charms with crystal blue cs and the circle inside is from the circle b&t from emporium.
I colored in the bubbles with Crystal Blue then used my glue pen to adhere Prisma Glitter. The tail is Liquid Applique. The scalloped circles are Nestabilities and the scalloped border is a SU! punch. All other supplies are ctmh. For the card sketch, I used CPS #97.
Stamps: Intrinsic Backgrounds, Bunny Love
Paper: Creative Basics Emporium Collection
Embellishments: Heavenly Blue Ribbon Collection, Circle Window Charms, Prisma Glitter
Stampin' Up! scalloped edge punch, Circle Nestabilities
I hope that it is swapworthy!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
I hope that you have found inspiration in my creation!!

OK......I know I have been a little quiet lately!
Life has a way of throwing us curveballs when we least expect it. What we do and how we react to those curveballs, is up to us. Who would have thought that at the age of 45 I would be starting my life over, reinventing myself and finally figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. Well, ALMOST! lol I want to play with ink, paper and ribbon and share Stampin' Up's wonderful products and opportunities with you!! I am THRILLED to be part of this company and am looking forward to seeing where the wind takes me. Happy Stamping!!
