I made these for a friend for Christmas and have decided to make some or myself. Hmmm, that gives me 4 days to get them done! ") Nothing like waiting until the last minute, huh. LOL I'm sure it will be after Christmas before I get anything else posted. Merry Christmas! and a Happy New Year!

The swirl stamp is by Rhonna Farrar of Autumn Leaves (?)......... The photos of the cards out of the envelopes were taken before I sent these submission to Stampington. I try very hard to remember to photograph everything I send as a submission because I very rarely have them returned...........cards, that is. If I send in a book or a journal, I send postage money so it can be returned to me.
I stamped her 2X and cut the dress out of the decorative paper and layered it over the little girl image. She just looks like she might be missing someone. ") Sentiments are by Stampin' Up!
This paper is by SEI (Mimosa) and the page that has the little flowers on it is just loaded with them. They are perfect to cut out and layer..and snip so you can curl them up and make them look three dimensional.
The Birthday Girl is one of my favorite images from B-Line. The envelope is a flocked cardstock.
The paper I used for "family reunion" is from Scenic Route......
alas, it is no more :(..........I bought several of Sarah Milne's craft papers that have a design running up the left side of the papers. This one had a tree and just begged for those little birds of Beverly's to be stamped onto it. ") I used one of Allie Gower's "Metal Works" flowers for the center of the ribbon.............and they didn't even give her credit for it!!! I've
sent in several cards to Stampington with her Metal Works on them and this was the first they've published. (sorry, Allie :(
I stamped the lady three times to get skin tone, the dress and the bowtie; then, I cut the dress and tie and layered over the skin tone image. I used Copic markers to color in the hair and face features. And, then stamped the tea tray from the same papers as the dress and used it to embellish the paper ribbon around the envelope. (These are my very favorite colors!)
