March CDS Sneak Peeks - Day 2

Hello friends! I have three sets to show you today and they are all different styles. Isn't it fun?! The first set is Daisy by Wendy Hall. It features an adorable little girl and her toys... like these little friends - the bunny and bird. I colored them with prismacolors on textured white paper and then simply matted them on some bright colors of cardstock that coordinated with my scrap of dp. And I used eyelets! Another treasure from my stash. :-)

Then we have Daisy herself...

Here she is - sittin' pretty on some scraps of Basic Grey Wisteria dp. She's colored with Copics and trimmed out and applied to the card front with dimensionals. I love how she matches the paper!


Next up is the companion set to last month's lady gymnasts, simply called - Male Gymnasts. I chose to use a black and white color scheme and I just love how it turned out. I pulled out another treasure - my glossy paper and embossing powder - and simply put the ep over my image that I stamped in Memento Black and heated it. I didn't have to use a slower drying ink since I used the glossy paper. Somewhere along the way I think I put a little iridescent ice ep back in my clear ep container... so if you look really close I think Mr. Gymnast is sparkling. Maybe it's sweat?? ;-)


Last we have these two stamps from the $1/$2 section... Spot the Dog and I Woof You. I colored the image with prismacolors and oms on Ivory Natural cardstock. I like the "manly" feel to the card. Great for my dh or ds!

Don't forget - there is lots more to see at the other designers' blogs!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Hi Tricia! Great card samples today!

Your Dylan's friends card is so bright and cheery! Love the happy colors on this and the cute layout and eyelets, too! (I've totally forgotten I even have eyelets! LOL)

And Daisy is colored fabulously in that Basic Grey Wisteria and perfectly compliments that great layout!

I love your black and white gymnast card, as it really spotlights the gymnast, himself. Great layout, too.

Spot the Dog is as cute as can be on this cutie pie card...you've colored him adorably and the sweet brads and buttons are perfect here!
