Have any of you tried these Carousel notes from SU?? They are very addictive! And they are HUGE!! The envelope they fit in are 6 x 6" squares! With my vacation time, I have had more time to stamp and decided to give these carousels a whirl!! :)
I made this one for one of my favorite stampers in the WORLD, Gina K...in case you haven't seen her new stamps, Kindred spirits, you HAVE to get over there!! She is such a tremendous business woman and now with this stamp release...well, let's just say she will revolutionize rubber stamp images with these real to life stamps of woman of all shapes, sizes, ages and heritages....to follow the journey of introduction to this absolutely fabulous set on her blog, click >>here!<< and if you like recipes, plan to have your printer hooked up and going while you travel!!
By the way, the stamps on this first card are from one of my other favorite stamp companies, Papertreyink. The sentiment is from Mixed Messages; the pot and stems from Green Thumb and the ladybug from Little Lady. I LOVE PTI stamps....Nichole's PTI is my "Stamps of True Beauty" company!
This card was for my niece Jackie's birthday last week. I used SU rub ons for the sentiment and around the edges and an image SBS9 sister Jackie (hey, same name! Funny!) sent me in a swap of Penny Black images! I colored this adorable kitty and tulips IMMEDIATELY after I got the image...Copics are so BEAUTIFUL to color with!! Can't you just reach out and pet that kitty!?
And finally, this carousel card is for a faith-filled friend who has blessed my life recently...she has brought great joy to my heart! I love the color combinations! The flourishes and sentiment are SU Love and Happiness rub-ons, but the "Joy" image is from Papertreyink's Snowflake Serenade set...I am totally ga-ga over the font...as I am ga-ga over all words beautiful!! BTW, the green background easel is the only thing I could find to hold up these carousel notes! Doesn't the color of it match my card! LOL!
Are these carousels fun or what!? Whee!!! More pix to post tomorrow!! (darn camera!!)
