So, it goes like this... a while back the inspiration challenge went to a site with umbrella's... remember that? well the thing that struck me a whole bunch was how many mug shots there were with people with red umbrella's... and somewhere after that those people at Unity Stamps had a fabulous sale with .99 cent shipping... so, Of course this chickie jumped into my shopping cart because somewhere in recent memory Susie did an awesome card with her in shades of grey. no clue how long its been or what her card really looks like anymore but, that was the thought behind this one is lets make the umbrella red and everything else mostly grey. ( its A-7 in real life) that ribbon came from big lots when ours first opened years and years ago. the sentiment is from Verve Stamps.
Another new one from Unity Stamps. ( I think its name is someone to be there) from the Phyllis Harris line. its colored with copic markers on some Neenah solar white the lace is vintage the printed paper was a scrap with no mfg info on it but, if I remember right it came from like joanns fabrics a million years ago ( and its literally paper thin so, you have to be careful putting good glue on the backside)
Now this one is firmly Jeanne's fault last year during HYCCT she had a pink balloon challenge and she used this taylored expressions die set with kraft paper some how. ( dont really remember the details but, it was so fabulous I promptly put it on my wish list and eventually bought it) today is the first time it was played with. the center balloon is up on pop dots over the three along the edges and the whole frame is also up on pop dots. the sentiment is from the Avery Elle set called sending you. this one is also A-7 in real life. it was going to be a cas card... and I out smarted my self. drew some faint pencil lines on the pink cardbase and stamped the sentiment. so far so good... then put the frame onto it... crooked... so, it was trimmed and mounted to a second cardbase. ( such is life)
just something silly. I know the guy and the fish are from river city rubber works. ( have to look up the sentiment)
this one is A-7 also. the colored panel was diecut with a avery elle die set ( dots? dotted? something like that its a frame with a bunch of banner/flag type dies in the set)
now this one, eh... I wanted it to be quirky but, the ribbon is really bugging me colorwise so, I had to just wrap it up and let it go. ( also A-7)
the entire lotv image is covered with clear wink of stella and she sparkles in real life.
used up a few scraps on the table. the larger one is 4 1/2" square and the smaller one is 3" square.
