Warm and Fuzzy



I received a Gina K. order on Monday (Happy Day, Happy Day!) and yesterday I finally had a chance to stamp :o) I have got to say the images from Warm and Fuzzy are so cute! It is a companion set to Framed Friends by Asela Hopkins.

I recently picked up a set of oval Nestabilities and still need a mat in order to emboss (sadly Hobby Lobby was out of them) so I thought I would just sponge the edges. I colored the image with Copics and incorporated a challenge of making a tailored bow from Joanne B....you can find how to make one yourself *HERE*. I promise it is easy and adds a nice touch. I included a photo as well of how I popped the bird image up on dimensionals.



I actually stamped the bird on the swing twice and paper pieced it onto my sponged oval (which kept the swing white since I got a little heavy handed on the sponging...it's like I don't know when to stop, LOL!) I adhered some little metal bling to the chain holding the bird swing and added one to the sentiment as well. All in all it was a fun card to put together. Well, it is Friday and I have quite a bit to do today. If I want to find time to stamp tomorrow, I need to straighten the house today! Nothing says "free time" like a clean house :o) Have a great day!

I like your angled band and the dimension of the bird.

Btw... you don't need a fancy mat for embossing. Go to the hardware store and get a piece of plumbers gasket. It comes in a sheet about 8" square and costs under a dollar. It comes in two thicknesses so you have to decided which one is best for your die cut machine. Personally, I use the thinner one. I just trimmed mine to fit the size of my machine. Works perfectly.
