Awe...isn't that what every woman wants to hear from her honey?! I know I enjoy hearing it from mine....I'll wait while you recover from choking and gagging....better?! Now, seriously it's so sweet to know when someone loves you SO much right?! Lately my DH has really been showing his affectionate side and I've been loving every minute of it! So when I got these TOTALLY ADORABLE stamps from The Rubber Cafe, I totally "felt it" and knew they were perfect to make a super cute card! These little guys are called "Stella and Angus" and don't they look like they're SO in love with each other?! Sweethearts! Well here's my first project with them;
I chose to color these with my colored pencils and gamsol. I am SO in love with that technique! I was able to achieve the same level of softness in the paper I used which, by the way, was a scrap on my table so I apologize for not knowing the maker! The shape around the turtles is cut using my Cuttlebug and my nesties. I had to add some bling too so there are Stickles in the centers of all the colored in flowers and the smaller Prima flowers. I am a big fan of pearls, both my girls have pearl birthstones! I used little half pearls from Bella (gotta love the name right?!) for the center of the big flowers. That fun ric rac...I'm pretty good at scavenging in store sale bins and was lucky to find this at JoAnn fabrics for 99cents! I love a good deal!!!
Here's some great news about Stella and Angus too....there's more in the series! Interested?! Well head on over to Melissa's store, The Rubber Cafe, and check them out! They're a little on the big side so be sure to grab a set of her "Rock-a-Blocks" too! I know they're on my next order too! I'm always looking for great blocks for my stamps too and think these will be a perfect fit!
I hope you liked my turtles!!
Until next time....
