Twofer and NBUS!
It's been quite the day here in the UK with gusty winds, heavy rain and hail! So when my latest stamp from AAL arrived this morning it felt like the right time to use her. I have been hankering after some Vera Lane stamps for ages and have made a purchase as digis, but this little lady is exclusive to AAL and I just had to have her.
For my first card I used a circle cut from a gelli plate background I created with a water droplet stamp. I them fussy cut out her and an umbrella from an old magazine set and coloured with promarkers. The sentiment inside reads "bring May flowers" and was also with the magazine set by Clearly Besotted.
I've angled her back a little more than she should be to give the impression of a gust of wind!
I see this being a card to send to a friend for many different circumstances.
For my second card I used yet more NBUS! The plaid background stamp came only the other day and so did the die cut which is part of an old CC mag but I cut away the flower inside. I was actually making some cards with this die when the inspiration struck for these cards, so watch for those soon!
I used a combination of sentiment stamps from Lawn Fawn and Papertrey Ink - I think this could be a birthday card or a just "Happy wishes" card.
These cards are for the Twofer challenge. Where this month you have free reign!
As per the rules I have used exactly the same stamp set on each card. I added her hat and the dog to the second card.
As I alluded to earlier, this stamp set, the die and the plaid background are all NBUS so I am also entering into the current NBUS challenge #24.
