...not to mention her birthday too!! Woo-hoo!! It's a CEL-E-BRATION!! And to kick off the festivities, Em is releasing the most AWESOME new stamps today!! Ya gotta go check out all the new images at Stamping Bella!! **sniff-sniff* Smell the new rubbah??? Dudn't get any betta than new rubbah! Ahhhhhh!!
So whaddaya think of my new little Skater dude? Ain't he a cutie?? He's one of the new images being released today. I don't get to make little boy cards very often since I have a little girl, (well she's 24 - so not exactly little but you know what I mean) so little boy cards are a nice change of pace for me. My little guy is on SU Natural Ivory CS and is colored with my Copics. I cut him out with my circle Nesties and embossed the edges too! I added some little faux stitching dots along the embossed edge just for some interest and attached the sentiment, stamped on a tag, with a brad. I matted the image with some SU Real Red CS cut with my inverted scalloped Nesties and added a few dimensionals to the back so he'd pop off the card a little. The card base is SU Sahara Sand and I found this great DP from Crate Paper in my stash. When I saw the little monsters riding on skateboards I thought PERFECT!!! Oh, I almost forgot to tell you! Guess what I ordered off HSN?? Seriously, I NEVER watch this channel, no really - I'm telling the truth!! You don't believe me do you? Ok-ok, I do occasionally.. so when I saw this item, a "We Are Memory Keepers Corner Chomper" I thought - helloooooo!!! Is this thing cool or what?? Ok, so the UPS man (LOVE my UPS man! MWAH!!) pulls up and I'm standing outside like ready to attack him and he says, "been standing there all day waitin' on me huh?" and I say, "YUP", now give me my box and run along so I can go play!! No, I didn't say that part but that's what I was thinking... So I ran inside and started punching whatever piece of paper I could find. Bwha-ha-ha-ha!! I had to test it!! Geez!! I used it on the DP and the mats on this card and seriously, it's like cuttin' buttah!! Smooth as a babies butt!! The directions say it'll even cut through chipboard!!! Whoa!! I thought it might be too big and heavy but actually it feels really nice in my hands and it appears to be made really well too! Ok, so after playing with my new toy, I stitched the edges and finished with this cute striped ribbon from SU. What a cute little boy card, huh?
Be sure to leave a comment below and let me know what you think of him. I hope you all have a GREAT day today.
