Happy Wednesday, my friends! The days and weeks seem to be flying by for me as I find myself here, posting another Wednesday project. Between the 18 inches of snow, the crazy weather and my grandchildren coming and going through what seems to be a revolving door on my house, I'm as dizzy as can be. As I type this, two of them are just waking up from a sleepover and I've got to get them ready for school and out the door. A move to Florida is sounding real good right about now :)
Okay, now that I've vented, let me share my Whimsical Wednesday project with all of you. The Challenge this week is called Three, Two, One....include 3 of something, 2 of something and 1 of something. For example, 3 papers, 2 buttons, 1 flower. You may include other items, but just be sure to include your 3, 2, 1 in your post. I doubled up on my 3, 2, 1.... I have 3 flowers (and 3 pearls), 2 bows (and 2 tags) 1 image (and 1 embossed panel). Just use your imagination and be creative!
The oh-so-sweet girl is a Swiss Pixie by C.C. Designs and her name is Miss Rosalie. I believe she is available in both rubber and digi. I colored her up with Copics and then cut the image using an oval Nestabilities die. My dear friend, Carole, sent me a RAK several months ago, sharing some gorgeous embossed panels, and this is one of them. Isn't it beautiful? The oval was already cut out and it frames little Miss Rosalie so perfectly.
The flowers are from I Am Roses. The white ribbon is from Ribbon Carousel and the twine is from The Twinery. The two little tags are a Quickutz die.
The sentiment, Happy Hello is from the Whimsical Designs Everyday Sentiments set. You can find all of the Whimsical Design stamp sets HERE.
I used a piece of scotch tape to mask each word so I could stamp them separately and I used a lavender ink pad to match the card stock and colored image.
To add some dimension to the card, I cut a piece of craft foam a little bit smaller than the embossed panel and then used an oval Nestie to cut the center. So the finished piece of craft foam acted as one giant pop dot. I actually cut two of them after deciding that I wanted it thicker.
We would love to have you join us this week in our fun challenge. Head on over to Whimsical Designs for some inspiration and ideas. Stephanie has all of the challenge details listed at the end of the post.
