You're in My Thoughts to Get Well Soon

I have two cards to share with you today.

TheresaCC was the Featured Stamper over on Split Coast this week. I chose her Happy Spring card to CASE. I used different stamps, stamped my backgrounds instead of using DP, used a different edge punch and changed the sentiment but despite all these changes - it looks very much like her card!

My stamps are all by Rubbernecker Stamps The background layer is Victorian Damask, the middle layer is a daisy floral that I inked with 3 different colors, and the hat is from the Fashion Icon set. The sentiment is from Petite Thoughts.

I stamped the hat twice, sponged the base and colored the band and flower which I cut out and layered over the base with foam dimensionals. The flowers are from Michaels -Wedding section (they come in a pail). I sponged them with 3 colored inks, added the pearls to the centers, curved the petals on my finger tip and attached with foam dimensionals.

I love how bright and cheery this looks!

Stamps: Rubbernecker: Floral daisy #496, Victorian Damask - #498, Fashion Icon Set #455, Sentiment-Petite Thoughts.
Paper: Summer Sunrise, White - PTI, Certainly Celery SU
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo black, rose bud, dandelion, cottage ivy, Summer Sunrise - PTI
Accessories: sponge, flowers - Michaels, martha stewart edge punch, foam dimensionals, sticky pearls, saddle stitched Summer Sunrise ribbon - PTI
My next card was made for the Teapot Tuesday Challenge on Split Coast. This is the teapot Cindy showed us as inspiration. Isn't he fun?!? You can see Cindy's wild story here.

And here's the card I created - using the colors and dotted theme of the teapot itself.
I'm thinking the flower looks sort of like the rooster's cockscomb.
Inside the card I stamped one of the sentiments from the PTI set and overstamped it with the outline teapot. The Feel better is a little stamp by Uptown Artstamps.
Thanks so much for coming by!
