I'm so happy that I stamped and crafted a ton before Sofia went into her surgery. It helped to calm my pre-op jitters, and even though I'm too exhausted to craft anything right now, I still have things to show you. Win-win.
You know me & cute images, so I obviously had to snap up the new Mama Elephant set, "bootastic." I made a few cards, just for fun:
I selectively inked the greeting, so I could stretch out the joke a little more... you have to be looking for that "just kidding" at the bottom! And I used the solid stripe from "message bands" to create the background.
The images are adorable. especially the mummy. but I can't help thinking they all look stunned, like they were all making spooky noises with the light off and then someone's mom came and flicked it on. how embarrassing.
I went somewhere different for the next card:
Before I chatter about the card, I would just like to point out that these cards were photographed one right after the other. (same location, same lighting.) The choice of background made a huge difference! I'm not usually a fan of red or orange backgrounds, but for halloween I'll pretend that it works. I much prefer the cool, blue backdrop.
I used lawn fawn's new journaling card die, and a sentiment from "critters ever after." They work perfectly with this little princess.
I masked the edges of the journaling card die and the cloud border to be able to sponge a blue sky behind our girl. A few touches of gold glitter and some rosy cheeks and she's positively regal. hee.
Until next time!
