Bugaboo Stamps (7 images to winner)
Eureka Stamps (5 images to winner)
I literally agonized for days over this card:( When I found out that I had to create a background using no decorative paper and no image with scenery I was like "How do I do this?" I have seen incredible backgrounds at Floral Fantasies. She uses Pan Pastels and makes gorgeous background scenes. I thought maybe I could use my Gelatos, but since I have never even attempted it before, it did not turn out so well. It isn't totally awful, so I used it anyway, but it is not what I was going for. Once I decided on that, I had a difficult time figuring out my details and embellishments. I could only stand to do a little at a time. Here is the end product:
This image is from Bugaboo and is called "Unicorn". My granddaughter will be having a birthday in March and since she loves everything horsey, I figured this would be the perfect image. I found out that she is having a princess party, so it worked even better. She is cut out and popped up using foam squares as is the grass (cut using Sports Mania Cricut Cartridge). It did take a long time to cut around those flowers. Normally we are not to use another image on our creations. We do not want to take away from our sponsor's images, but what is a princess party without a princess? I thought I would tuck one out of sight on an inserted tag:
I do not have a princess stamp, so I had to get creative and turn Happy Spring Mini Tilda into a princess by giving her a fairytale princess hat. It is actually a birthday hat cut from the Plantin' Schoolbook cartridge. I just altered it a little.
I cut another bigger hat to use on the inside of the card. All in all, I am pretty pleased with this card.
I think that you may get a laugh out of this:
I had left the card out because I was working on it. My granddaughter (Keianna) found it and grabbed it right up. "OOOHH! It a unicorn! Is this mine?" she said. I asked her if she thought it should be hers and her reply was a definite yes. I told her that just maybe it could be her birthday card. She put it down on the table, looked at me and said, "Thanks! You are really good at this!" She is only 3. My mom and I got a chuckle out of that.
