Angel Art Blog Hop

Some of my Angel friends and I are having a "Replenish Your Card Stash" blog hop. We'll all be posting several cards we've made.

The inspiration for this first card came from this card of Laurie's! I knew I wanted to do something with circles, but the idea hadn't solidified in my mind yet. When I saw Laurie's card, I knew what I was going to do! The inside says, "Round is a shape." I just love these new TAC sets--Funny Farm and Funny Farm Phrases.

Don't you just love the way the button in the lower right looks like a pig snout?!?! ;-)

I had this fun image (retired, below) already colored and waiting for just the right card. After I did the pig, I knew she'd be the next "round" one. I added red Gelly Glaze pen to her lips and purple Stardust Glittering Gel pen to her fingernails and toenails. Nice touch, don't ya think?! The felt flowers and Scraper's Floss are always fun additions too.
This little gal from Beary Happy Day was one of the image I stamped and colored at Seminar. The "happy birthday" is from the new Barrel Monkeys set. Those snaps I used are now retired. :-(

I really like the "cheerfulness" of this next card, which I actually made before Seminar when I pre-purchased a few sets. The stamp set is called Happy Thoughts and is only $12.95. I used my Scor-pal to emboss lines on the blue piece and then sanded lightly. My Cloud Scissors gave a gentle scallop and the entire blue piece is popped up with Pop Dots. I used Belle Rose ink on the pink card front to give the look of a watermark without sanding on the white core cardstock.

While the image from the next card isn't brand new, it's still an all-purpose fave of mine! Everyday Events has an image for just about everything you can think of. Here, I used paper from the Penelope collection, and the brads are from the Matte Heritage mini brads.

I had to laugh about your pig snout button. I totally always move my buttons around so I DON'T get the pig snout look. This is perfect for that card. Your sassy purple card is adorable (gotta love that retired image). Too too cute. I haven't started coloring my Seminar-stamped images yet, you've inspired me though. TFS!
