Carte-licous

Images ©Melanie Muenchinger & Starving Artistamps


Stamps: Just So Sporty (Melanie Muenchinger/Gina K. & Starving Artistamps)
Card Stock: Riding Hood Red, Naturals White, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Mellow (BasicGrey), Neenah Solar White
Ink: Palette Noir, Memento Rich Cocoa, Wild Wasabi, Copic Sketch markers
Accessories: Circle & Scalloped Circle Nestabilities, 1" & 1¼" Circle punches, Martha Stewart Leaf punch, Antique Brass Clip, A Muse stitched ribbon, Tomo Mono Multi Glue, Scotch foam tape

It's time once again for another Carte-licious challenge with my friends Sue and Melissa!! It was my turn to send images to the others, and I chose this cozy hoodie from Melanie Muenchinger's Just So Sporty set. I decided to make a Z-Fold card (you may find my tutorial here). The patterned paper is from my BasicGrey Mellow pad. The hoodie is colored with Copic markers, and mounted with Scotch foam tape. I also colored and mounted another pocket for dimension. The sentiment is from my Give Thanks sentiment set from Starving Artistamps. The little leaves are from my Martha Stewart punch.

Please be sure to check out the blogs of Sue and Melissa (click on their names above) to see their wonderful challenge cards, and thanks for stopping by today!

*Personal/non-stamping update:
I took my dog for an ultrasound and urine test today. It looks as though he may have cancer. More results should be in tomorrow. We are just trying to keep him comfortable, but his health is deteriorating quickly. Very sad.

I love this RoseAnn... Thanks for the tidbit of info too. I always forget to color the edges of my work.!!

What a cute card, Rose Ann! Thanks for the tip about coloring the edges! I'm sorry to hear about your dog...I hope he will be comfortable and that you will be comforted. Hugs, Jackie

Leslie Miller said...

Now that's my kind of fall fashion! I always love the look of cut outs and your tip is great. I do that, too. Thanks so much for sharing it. I'm truly sorry about your dog, Rose Ann. It's so very sad to look toward losing a friend. We lost our beloved Otto to cancer and it was heartbreaking. I'm so very sorry for you and your family. I think I saw a picture of your dog once, if this is the same one. I forget the breed but he looked very huggable. Again, I'm so sad for you.
