Happy Monday, peeps! I have two cards for you today, and they are both thank you cards to members of our church's praise team! They have been faithful about sharing their music every Sunday morning for our church's live feed, and I felt compelled to tell them how much I appreciate it! (Dana is also on the praise team....she got some homemade cupcakes instead of a card, LOL!) I also have spent some time lately updating the database which lists (almost) all my stamp sets! My long-time stamping friend/demo Shawn told me recently that she also lists all the sentiments that go with the stamps....quite handy if you're looking for something specific! But also quite daunting as I have a LOT of stamps! But anyway, I came across some stamps I totally forgot I had, so I had fun creating with some old friends!
My first card is for the team leader and guitarist; the Less is More challenge is "scribbles, drips or splats"...I just love that description!
I pulled out Fabulous Four, Epic Celebration and Gorgeous Grunge along with Garden Green and Mint Macaron inks to create his card:
This was pretty straightforward to create, the hardest part was cutting out the guitar, LOL!
The second one is for our organist/pianist. She is quite an accomplished musician, and I wanted to create something a little more "organic"!! I stamped a background music stamp in Sahara Sand, then overstamped some images from a long-ago set called Words of Wisdom. The bird and verse are also from the same set:
I used the colors from the Sunday Stamps challenge:
I colored the bird with Crushed Curry and Crumb Cake inks, and the leaves are Granny Apple Green.
I distressed and sponged the edges of the white panel and mounted in on a Lost Lagoon card base and added some Lost Lagoon ribbon. And just for fun, I added some Pineapple Punch DSP; it's not "vintage", but somehow, it seems to complement the yellow in the bird! It felt good to use some of these older stamps! I love my new ones, but I love the old ones too! Thanks for popping in today!
Dana got Cassidy a kit to create her own spin art machine! How cool is that? She followed the directions and only needed a wee bit of help from mom, and it worked!
Check out those directions---yikes!
It's all wired up, batteries in......
And we have art!
