Hmmm…looks like this boy is in a bit of trouble. I’m happy to say I’ve never had an experience like this (including having to wear a business suit to work)!
Well, you know… my mind wanders when I start thinking about combining sets, and My Favorite Things stamps are absolutely perfect for mixing.
This card took a bit of planning. I actually started by stamping a beer bottle, then masking it, stamping another and masking that one as well. I started with only three bottles on the floor but then thought, no, there needs to be more (because he’s in LOTS of trouble). But before adding bottles, I stamped the dude image. I masked him, then stamped the woman from the Back to School set. Next I stamped four more bottles, colored and cut them out and adhered each one individually in the pile. The hat and fish plaque are mounted on dimensionals.
Since I haven’t used them in a while (and I need the practice), I got out my Prismacolor pencils to color the images.
I have really appreciated everyone taking a peek at my blog. I was hesitant to start it, wondering if anyone would even be interested in what goes through my mind or how I do things. So as a “thank you” I’m having my first give-away. I’ve tried to cover the boys, both big and small. I’ve included the newly released set Let’s Hear it for the Boys from My Favorite Things, an 8″ x 8″ pack of the new Little Boy Biography Collection by Cosmo Cricket (VERY cute patterned paper with alphabet and journaling cards), a set of Karen Foster mini tool charms (many of you know how much I love those!), Boy Crazy mini sprinkle brads by Queen & Co., and three yards each of red/cream striped ribbon and brown/cream striped ribbon (both May Arts).
All you need to do is leave a comment on this post (one per person, please). You can just say hi, ask a question, whatever. You can comment through Tuesday, August 14th. On August 15th I’ll use the random number generator to select a winner.
Thanks again for visiting! I really appreciate your interest!
