On Cloud 9 …

Thank_You_head
if i may say so….. lol. Some of you may remember my friend Crissy…. she has been a reader of my blog since the very beginning and over the time we have developed a friendship that i treasure. Well.. what can i say.. the other day i received a wonderful present and i made her this card with some Hanglar stamps because i know she loves those very much. Crissy does not have a blog but she has a gallery over on SCS (i know she is does not like if i tell that lol) and she makes the most darling cards with Hanglars, Magnolia and Motivet stamps! If you have a minute, check it out. :-)
Thank_You_1
as for my card.. i have used some scraps that i kept from this wonderful My Minds Eye paper, i think it is a line from 2007?? Than i thought of using the Nestabilitie label 6 to make a cloud to match my Hanglar stamps. On the cut out i have airbrushed clouds with a a little scallop oval. I just layered this shape onto my Label 6 cut-out randomly and airbrushed with blue over it to create the clouds, i am not sure if you can see those cause the Hanglar’s cover most of them but it is a nice extra touch. The sentiment is from one of my favorite Stampin up sets “Fresh Cuts” – and i cut it out with Nestabilities Fancy Tags. BEFORE i adhered the Hanglar images to my card i spritzed the card with Shimmerz “Babies Breath” heavily to give it a nice shimmer. Than i added the Hanglars with pop-up-dots onto the “cloud”. All images are colored onto Neenah Ultra white with Memento Black ink.
Thank_You
Other used: Karen Forster snowflake brad, pearl brad from Archivers, Stickles and Nestabilitie Label 1 , Martha Stewart Loop border punch.
sorry for the longer post today :-)
have a wonderful day xoxoxox
