Over the Moon Birthdays


Happy Saturday, peeps!  I had a little free stamping time yesterday after Day One of our yardsale, so I made a couple of cards using the CAS on Sunday color palette as well as the Time Out challenge:


 I rarely make funny cards, and I don't know why....but the Over the Moon set with its cute little cows (and the fact that I grew up on a farm!) appealed to me, so this is my first card using it:

 

I went very CAS on this one, using one layer only of thick white cardstock so my Blends wouldn't bleed through so much.  I stamped little bossy in Memento black and using the challenge colors to color her in.  I also stamped the flower on some gingham DSP, and added a Blend-colored rhinestone to the center:


I made another card with the same colors because I LOVED them together, and this one was a little more stepped up, using some DSPs in Pool Party and So Saffron, and stamping the cow and another birthday sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet on a piece of regular white cardstock, then diecutting it out with a Stitched Rectangle die.  


The die didn't quite reach around the flower, so I stamped it again on a scrap and colored it with a marker and added some Wink of Stella to the center, as well as to her boots:


I didn't add quite as much shading and detail with the Blends, but I did add some sequins and a ribbon, so it qualifies for the Just Add Ink challenge:


Thanks for popping in for a visit today!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!

Here are some of the flowers on my patio this summer:




Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I haven't heard the cow called "bossy" in ages! Love the boots on your bossy. Your flowers are absolutely gorgeous and remind me of my childhood at my grandmother's house. Thank you for sharing.

You did amazing on both of these cards, LeAnne! I've never seen "bossy" look so adorable! Love how CAS the 1st one is and your coloring is wonderful! The stepped up version is equally adorable with the gingham paper and pretty colors! Well done! And I know I have told you when I was there that your flowers are GORGEOUS! Such a variety of colors and all blooming so nicely! You definitely have a green thumb! :)

Wonderful cards, LeAnne - I love the CAS and the layered one. My favorite thing is those boots - I love them. Thank so much for playing along with our FUNNY challenge at Time Out!

I love this set too LeAnne and have also been on a creative roll with it over the last few days - nice to have some fun cards to post this week! I love this colour palette too - so fresh! These comical cows are fabulous and I love the flower detail and fab wellies too. Your patio flowers are gorgeous too; my hanging basket is looking nice but my pots are a little slow this year - not enough sunshine in this part of the world!!
