Bit of Humor


I promised something totally different and I think I found a very simple "different" from what I've posted the last couple of days. LOL!

Meet a new stamp line I discovered, Stamping Bella's Cool Chicks Collection . . . full of humor! My sis-in-law has been trying to exercise and I haven't quite jumped up to join her yet. So I thought this card would be most appropriate to send to her.

On white card stock, I stamped with Memento in Tuxedo Black. Used my Copic Markers to color in the chicks.

I had a left-over die cut from a new PoppyStamps' die that I had practiced with, so I framed the chicks with it (after I had stamped the sentiment). The sentiment, from the same stamp set, was inked with Memento Ink as well and applied with my MISTI.

I framed it all with a scrap piece of Japanese Linen card stock, Tsumugi. That was adhered to a scrap piece of Hero Arts decorated card stock, which was then adhered to the base A2 card. Gray adhesive-backed pearls were added.

Stamping Bella Cool Chicks Collection: Sweaty Chicks EB347

PoppyStamps Die: Grand Stick Frame 1537

IMAGINE Crafts' Memento Dye Ink from Tsukineko in Tuxedo Black

Copic Markers: Chrome Orange (YR04); Cadmium Orange (YR07); Tuscan Orange (YR27); Lipstick Orange* (R17); Cerise (RV06); Cool Gray No. 5 (C-5)

Conqueror 118# Cover Card Stock in Diamond White (base card and inked panel)

Hero Arts decorated card stock

Hanko Designs' Japanese Linen card stock (Tsumugi) in Bright Blue (framing panel behind white card stock)

Eyelet Outlet adhesive-backed pearls in gray

*it's hard to tell in the photo; the Lipstick Orange was used on the bottom beak. Tuscan Orange was used for the feet and top beak.

From the Memory Box blog, this is a lovely birthday card that could easily be given to either gender. We all know how difficult it is at times to find a card design that is suitable for the male gender!

On the PoppyStamps' blog, I just love this card design by Olga. It uses the same Stick Frame die that I had used but in a totally different way.

Did you see that IMAGINE Crafts has come out with new colors to their Delicata line of shimmering inks? And one of the new full-sized ink colors is the Celestial Copper that has only been available in the small cube size. Yay!

I belong to the RubberMoon Mail Club. For a nominal fee each month, we receive a special designed stamp from RubberMoon. An optional feature is to swap a card using the stamp-of-the-month. My "swap" is going out into tomorrow's mail from the April mail.

To an ATC-sized card stock, I adhered a similar-sized double-stick adhesive sheet. After taking off the top protective overlay, I applied microfine silk glitter from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Why that glitter? Because it's the only one that doesn't release any of the glitter particles once it's burnished on with your fingers and I can use my Copic markers to color it. I used two stamps that I inked with IMAGINE Crafts' Memento dye ink in Tuxedo Black so it wouldn't react to the alcohol based markers. Yes, the mixing of the two stamps is a little abstract but you'd better understand if you're a moony. A glitter pen was used for the stars and the arrows on the hair beams.
