another chillin’ card December 3, 2007

Here is another take on MFT’s Baby it’s Cold Outside stamp set

But first, I wanted to share with you this bizarre pic (somewhat scary — from my vacation).  Looks like a shark right?  Well, it’s a dolphin.  What a cool pic I will be sending out to my family to trick them…he! he!

is it a shark? this is my daughter & son…I cropped myself out cause it was humid and I was having a bad hair day:)

Back to my card:

chillin’ new release

I love these colors.  I used KI Memories My Guy Disco Fever & My Guy Funky Stripe Patterned Papers.  Also, pulled out my stash of Adornaments Vegetation Fibers to add a little flair on top of a strip of ribbon from Jersey Ribbon Originals. 

The card size is 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ Mellow Moss CS folded in half with edges sponged with Chocolate Chip ink.  Next layer is 4″ x 4″ of River Rock CS and edges sponged with River Rock ink.  Top layer is 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ Disco Fever Patterned Paper and edges sponged with River Rock ink and Ticket Corner Punch to all 4 corners.  Added 4 Pewter Brads from Vintage Assortment (also added to snowman buttons to coordinate). 

Sentiment stamped with Brocade Blue ink on Papertrey White CS and punched out with Word Window Punch and held to card with a SU! Pewter Mini Library Clip.

The main image was stamped with Stazon Jet Black ink.  Used Aqua-Painter, Soft Sky, Brocade Blue, and good ol’ Cool Caribbean inks.  Stamped image again on Funky Stripe Patterned Paper, cut out, and adhered to images scarf & bottom of dress.
