Isn't she CUTE?! I've never met a Pure Innocence image that wasn't! :)
My card base is Steel Grey, sized at 5-1/4" square. The layers are Steel Grey, Primitive White, and X-Press It Blending Card. I stamped the houndstooth pattern from Textile Backgrounds in Sweet Tooth pigment ink down the left side of the card. I divided that section from the rest of the card with a bit of Orange Fizz Grosgrain.
I die-cut several layers of card stock with the Pierced Rectangle Die-namics, and airbrushed a pretty scene on the top layer. I used the Cloud Trio Die-namics, my Copic Air Compressor, and several Copic markers to create the background.
The sentiment was stamped in Steel Grey and die-cut from Primitive White card stock with the Sentiment Strips 2 Die-namics. I added a few orange enamel dots for balance.
I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It Blending Card, and colored her in with Copic markers. I stamped the cornucopia twice, colored and cut one of them out, and popped it up with double-sided foam tape. I then cut the girl out, and popped her up with double-sided foam tape as well.
Inside, I added a layer of Primitive White card stock, stamped the argyle pattern from Large Scale Backgrounds across the top in Gumdrop Green, stamped the girl in Orange Fizz, and stamped the sentiment in Steel Grey.
My second card also showcases the PI Cornucopia set and Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-namics.
My card base is Kraft, and the layers are Hot Fudge, Primitive White, and X-Press It Blending Card. I created the rectangle layers with the Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-namics. I added Olive Buttons and bits of twine to the end of each one. I stamped the sentiment, one word at a time, on each of the three small rectangles using Hot Fudge ink.
I created a simple background behind the girl using my Copic Air Brush System and Copic markers.
I stamped her in Memento Espresso Truffle ink on X-Press It Blending Card, and colored her with Copic markers. I then cut her out and popped her up with double-sided foam tape. I created texture on her sweater by simply "dotting" the colors on, rather than blending them.
Inside, I added a layer of Primitive White card stock, stamped the girl in Kraft, stamped the sentiment in Hot Fudge, and added a strip of Berrylicious card stock across the top.
It's hard to believe it's back-to-school time already, isn't it? We've had such a busy, fun summer, and are ready for a great fall too.
These photos of Nick & Abbi were taken just last week on their first day of school this year. I am feeling pretty blessed that they'll still pose for these photos for me. They'll be glad they did some day!
The fun number border along the botton was created with the Border It - Numbers Die-namics. I stamped the Lemon Drop card stock with the Textile Backgrounds set.
I just love this new Celebrate LIfe set from the brand new Sunny Day Doodles line. I stamped it on X-Press It Blending Card with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored it with Copic markers. Then, I die-cut it with the Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-namics.
I stamped "First Day of School" using Sweet Tooth pigment ink, added a strip of Lemon Drop card stock across the top, and topped it off with a fun arrow element created with the Blueprints 7 Die-namics, Sour Apple card stock, Red Hot ink, the Head of the Class stamp set, and Smooth White card stock.
The sheet of notepaper was created with Smooth White card stock, the Head of the Class stamp set, the School Days stamp set, the Take Notes stamp set, and the Document It - December set (numbers). I hand-wrote their names using a .7 black Copic multi-liner.
The sweet apple element was created with the School Days stamp set, School Days Die-namics, Smooth White card stock, and Red Hot ink. The date was die-cut with the High-Rise Numbers Die-namics and Nightshift Blue card stock.
