Did you ever forget someone's birthday? I do that all the time! I'm hoping to get more organized so that doesn't happen. I made a birthday box (a la Lauren Meader), which I'll share another time, that will hopefully help with that. But I purchased this stamp set from High Hopes a while ago just in case I did forget someone's birthday. She's Ellie, and isn't she cute? I just love that ribbon tied around her nose! I didn't decorate the inside yet, but there is a sentiment that goes along with it that says "I can't believe I forgot!" Cute!
I started this card with a sketch from High Hopes. I knew I wanted to color him with gray copics, so I looked in my stash for paper with gray in it. This dp is from Basic Grey's Ambrosia line. I love the stripes in this. The orange color paired nicely with SU's pumpkin pie and basic gray. After coloring Ellie, I ran a piece of pumpkin pie through this cuttlebug folder I just purchased. I layered all the pieces and paper pierced a line of holes along the right side of the gray piece. The ribbon is SU's taffeta basic gray, the large flower is a prima, and the small orange felt flower is SU's, as are the orange brads. The sentiment was stamped, cut and embossed with a tag die. I took a stipple brush and stippled pumpkin pie ink over the sentiment while it was still in the die. It looked too white, and this softenend it a bit. The main image and sentiment are on dimensionals. The peanuts at Ellie's feet is actually one stamp that I stamped three times. That's it! Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy your Sunday!
