Happy Hump Day!

Hello! I have a couple of cards to show you today ; ) This first one is the one I made for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS. I really like this layout! I pulled out my fabulous set from Verve called Up, Up, and Away. I stamped the balloon with Memento Tuxedo Black, then stamped it again on some Basic Grey Wisteria dp. I cut out the balloon part and paper pieced it. The sentiment is from Verve's Grateful Elegance set. I punched it out with my SU Oval Punch and sponged it with Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink. I layered it on top of a scalloped oval that I punched out of Bordering Blue with my SU Scalloped Oval Punch. I added a zigzag stitch all around the perimeter of the card, and the bow with the button detail. I also added some Stardust Stickles to the clouds.
This next card is my card for this week's Fun-Frilled Challenge to make a Father's Day card. I decided to use this adorable mouse from the Artful INKables set Rodeo Rodent. My husband and I both grew up in Wyoming, so we've been to lots of rodeos, etc. He really misses living out west, and me....not so much : ) I do miss the mountains though : ( Anyway...I stamped the mouse with Memento Tuxedo Black twice, cut one out and used it as a mask while I stamped the cacti (I think that's plural for cactus). I used Copics to color, and Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink to sponge. The base of the card is Chocolate Chip, and the green is Old Olive. I added some texture using a Sizzix Texturz Plate. The dp is from Bo Bunny and I added the scalloped border using my SU Eyelet Border Punch. I also added a zigzag stitch around the perimeter and brown brads to the corners. You can't tell but I added Glossy Accents to the star and belt buckle for some shine. The sentiment is from the new Stampin' Up catalog coming out next month called Teeny Tiny Wishes and fits perfectly in the Word Window Punch. Whew! I feel very long winded today : ) Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!!!

Hey what happened to you’re going to be putting the ingredients on here? I like reading that stuff. Yes, I am too lazy to do it myself, but I always read that part. Love the colors in your lil’ balloon card – very pretty.
