Without you, I'd go off the peep end!



Hello everyone,

     So I had this thought in my head that I could make a card using some type of window frame and have little peeps popping out, so I stamped the peeps using My Favorite Things, Hybrid Ink in Black Licorice, water colored and die cut the little peeps from the recent SSS monthly kit (the most adorable set ever) and started to create.  As I was going along I decided it would be really cute to make it a shaker card and I wanted lots of color, so why not a rainbow, right?  I love the way the Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors melted together so seamlessly on my Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock.
Once my main scene was created I picked out a cute piece of 6x6 paper from the "Spring" pad from Carta Bella that was in the SSS kit and cut that down to fit the front of an A2 card.
The hardest part was choosing which of the awesomely cute sentiments to use from the stamp set.  I decided that this card would be going to my mom, so the sentiment was perfect- she is always there for me and over the last 3 months she has helped with business stuff and accounting stuff and so much more and kept me from going crazy with stress, and this card is right up her alley and I am sure she will love it!
So I have included a detailed list of supplies used and hope you will come visit my blog again soon!
