Courtney





 Stamp Set Used 
Cricut Cartridge Used
 Wrap It Up: Card base 4.75", All Layers of Ship 4.5"

Design Notes: I used a brown sharpie to go back over some of the highlights of the stamping so that it gave it an old, distressed, written-with-a-quill-pen look.

Sonia




Stamp Set Used
My Pink Stamper Friend-tastic

Cricut Cartridges Used
Car Decals at 4"
Design Notes: Kraft paper cut at 4.25" x 11" and scored in the middle for a 4.25" x 5.5"  for a vertical card. Card body: cut a piece of paper at 4" x 5.25". The second piece of paper is cut at 4" x 2.5" and I used a punch to cut the scallops. Glue it together and stamp the sentiment.  For mine, I used one stamp from the NEW release My Pink Stamper called Friend-tastic.  OMG! what a super cute bunch of AWESOME! stamps...then, I did some stitching with a sewing machine, just randomly around the card twice, and last,glue this part to the card base. I used Car Decal cricut cartridge to make the boy.  You can find it in page # 36.  This lil guy was cut 4 times at 4" each.First cut was using kraft paper for the shadow, and the other 3 cuts in black, then red, pinkand put the colors where they needed to go.  I did some pick cheeks with a copic marker andpearls for the eyes... Finally, put some pop dots in the back and stick it to the card body.


Check out all of my new stamps that were released yesterday HERE.
