ok, so, i've mentioned before that tiny kawaii stickers are like catnip to me, i can rarely walk past a display without buying some. but... i make big, grungy cards! so they tend to accumulate and become a sort of tiny sticker museum instead of a supply source. thus i've been making an effort to dip into them more.
something else i can never resist is patterned paper with clouds on, but i'm not even going to pretend to be sorry about that one, because cloud paper is (imo) endlessly useful; it basically allows you to make an instant landscape! in this case i've got fairly big, fairly new, clouds from photoplay paired with pretty old, medium sized, hearts from echo park (i think!). my ancient heart and cloud punches still get used constantly; almost always on scraps, as they are here.
i used the current (awesome!) sketch saturday to guide my placement of elements:
finally, i have a little bit of a public service announcement to make, based on the fact that i found this combination of pre-cut-out elements which i swear was EXACTLY like this, when i was sorting through leftovers, looking for something else entirely. so if, like me, you store extra diecuts jumbled up in envelopes, you might consider separating predators and prey, or things like this are bound to happen!!!
Oh no! 😱😱 the croc has eatern the flamingo !!ReplyDelete
Thanks for my morning giggle!!! love your predator/prey story. Fabulous valentine card, oh my goodness ~~ collage and stickers two things I am lame at. Awesome take on the sketch as well.ReplyDelete
Your a clouds paper lady I'm a wooden/deck paper gall lol. I was wondering what you'd come up with for the sketch (I know you play along) when I saw it. Very cute valentines card using up those stickers. XReplyDelete
Are you ok? I see no stitching on this amazing card? And that PSA had me LOL!ReplyDelete
HAHA! That is hilarious! A framer!ReplyDelete
I love your card, and I have no problem with your addictions... I do not have kawaii stickers, but of course now I need them in my life. Anyway, love your stitching and the whole composition.
lol on your die cuts needing separation. Glad you made use of those adorable lil stickers.ReplyDelete
Bwahahaha! That croc's got main course and dessert. That would have totally made my day if it was me. Kwym about the cloud patterned paper....I've bought whole 6x6 paper pads because they included cloud paper.ReplyDelete
Super sweet card! I adore the design and those adorable stickers.
Love the croc and cupcake!! Now THERE'S a challenge idea!ReplyDelete
Love your card, and I think Paul McCartney may take issue with me laying claim to the "All You Need is Love" phrase :)
