Today I have a two for one posting to share with you. I just love it when I can take multiple products and use on one project. The main products on this posting are from Pinque Peacock and Scrapbook Stamp Society.
Today I have a great little card to share with you. This beautiful little lady is a Sherri Baldy Stamps My Bestie. I just love the big eyed beauties. There are so many wonderful things you can do with them.
I decided to try my hand at something a little different this go around. This time instead of making just a card, I wanted to make a step card. *sigh, what was I thinking*!!!! Thankfully after a little bit of searching, I found a nice card on the Silhouette Online site and the hard part was done. I did not have to do the measurements.
I love using my Silhouette and try to use it as often as I can for my craft projects. So this time around, I tried something really different. I took my digi and imported her into my software then did a trace. However, because of the little hairs and other tiny lines, she did not cut out as neatly as I would desire. So, instead of trying to cut her that way, I did a very small offset on her and it worked beautifully. I then did an offset of the offset (yes, I realize that does not sound quite right) so that I could have a shadow for the adorable little girl.
I embellished my card with paper piecings from Miss Kates Cuttables, the Silhouette Store, and some stamped images. However, I felt she still needed something more, so I turned to my trusty stash of fabulous Pinque Peacock pretties to see what I have that night match. The beautiful pink popper was perfect for this little lady. A perfect addition, doesn't it look like a tiny carnation? I then added one of the wonderful pearl stick pins as well. I think the combination set the card perfectly, what do you think?
