A Couple of New Cards

Well, I haven't gotten any more done in my efforts to revamp the sewing room into a craft room, but, I will get back to it. It is really a bit overwhelming at times. I did however make a couple of new cards.

This first one is okay, but not really that good. But, I love bright colors and pinks and purples so I had to make a pink or purple. It just didn't turn out as well as I would have hoped. And, I discovered I'm not as thrilled with stickles on a large scale. But, it is what it is and I did like the teddy bear, so here I post it. This stamp is Being Together by Gillian Roberts of Stampavie.


This next one I did this morning and I really like it. Of course, being one of my harshest critics, I do see flaws with it. But I really like it. This is my first attempt at coloring something other than cute little girls. And . . . this is also my first card made with a digi stamp. However, it is not my first attempt at coloring a digi stamp. With the first one I colored I discovered I needed to heat set the printer ink a slight bit longer than I originally thought. But, in the end, it is all good. I also was dying to use some of the paper in the Basic Grey Cappella pack I bought, and I must say, for someone who ranks green in the bottom of her color preferences, I really like this collection. I know I will be making more cards with it.
