Where does the time go? It flies, I tell ya’! At least when it’s not a long work day, it sure does! We have t-ball games and dance recital this week – that makes for a busy week for us – but alas, it is a good week.
I adore these incredible cards Carol has made to inspire us this month. She made these while she was waiting on her new goodies to come in, so I suspect she has some more gorgeous cards up her sleeve!
These cards all use a great stamp set that really is nice for watercoloring – it is called Zoo Review. I have used this stamp set for cards as well as scrapbook pages. A few years ago I used these stamps to embellish pictures from our stay at the Animal Kingdom lodge! I love the realistic sketches of the animals.
First up is Mr Lion – he is looking fierce, I tell you – love how these Soft Suede and Cherry Cobbler colors make this card so manly.
Check this out!!!! Why did I never think about this? How cool is this idea to create spots on the mat of the card that resemble the giraffe?! Wow! I love how is it embossed with the lattice folder also, great texture!
Here is a great birthday card – love the delicate bow with the stamped birthday image. These penguins have just the right touch of color to make them pop, also!
Again – just a little bit of coloring on this polar bear really makes him stand out – this is a great color combo for the polar bear. It would make a great baby card, too!
And one more incredible background for this zebra card – Carol – you knocked these cards out of the park, my dear! I just love the zebra background – these are truly outstanding! Thanks for some awesome inspiration!
