A couple of cards for you

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Wednesday, March 11, 2009
Here are 2 cards that I made today... I think my "big" card, my House Mouse Monday Challenge card stole all my Mojo before I got to these 2.. but here they are anyway!
This first card uses my new High Hopes stamp, Huggable Hank. I was trying to follow a sketch posted in the Cute Critters Club.. but I didn't stick much to the sketch, and it didn't turn out like I wanted. I'm not entirely happy with the coloring that I did on poor Hank, he ended up looking almost like an astronaut to me. Ah well.
High Hopes stamps, Huggable Hank, Stampin' Up! cardstock in Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla. Stampin' Up! stamp set, Lots of Thoughts. Patterned paper from The Stack. Orange patterned paper from my scrap pile. The ribbon is some that I saved from a shirt that Iain had bought last year.. it came wrapped in this wide brown ribbon. Colored with Copics and Stampin' Up! markers and blender pens.

This second card was also trying to follow a sketch in the Cute Critters Club... I just now realized I forgot to use a critter. Again, Ah Well.. I have no idea who makes this stamp, I found it in a pile of unmounted rubber in my craft room and said, "Hey, I've never inked this!" So, now I have. He's a cutie and I like the dimension and coloring and layout of this card.. but I think it's missing something. Maybe patterned paper in the background would have been nice. And this weird ribbon won't lay straight, no matter how I try!Stampin' Up! cardstock in Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla. Red cardstock from my stash, has some sparkle to it. Ribbon and embellies from my stash as well. Colored with Copics and Stampin' Up! markers.
