Different Card, Different Day 1/16/18 January 16 2018, 0 Comments
Awww! "We need each other". By the looks in these little guys eyes, they DO need each other.
"Let's eat!" and "I'm so Egg-cited" are part of my bacon & eggs stamp and cutting die set from this month's club kit by The Stamps Of Life - Stephanie Barnard. You've probably seen a couple days prior of bacon and eggs themed cards, as you'll see some more in today's blog. Many similarities but yet everyone of them are different. Let's start out with some eggs.
In one of the prior blogs I explained how I painted about 20 eggs and 20 bacon ahead of time. I made a little assembly line and just painted each of the colors on with my watercolors or Tim Holtz Distress Alcohol inks. In some cases I popped the egg yolk off the page by applying Glossy Accents to the circular shape yolk and filled it in. The ending result is a clear bubble over your image. Like the black checkered yolk pictured above.
Here's the inside of that card. "Eggscellent!"
I stamped one of the egg stamps onto the grey background page and used three of the same die-cut eggs. The blue and grey background page completely changed the look from some of the other cards that happen to say the same sentiment. Another way to give similar cards variances is to make some landscape (held horizontally - long sides on top and bottom) and some portrait style (held vertically -long sides on left and right).
Placing a "Happy Happy Happy" stamp in the lower right corner gave me the idea for the inside. Although it's not a part of the club kit set all the other stamps in this blog are from, it went perfectly with "Show your sunny side".
"I'm so Egg-cited for you!". What a great way to express that "Happy Happy Happy" feeling. Then just for fun I stamped two eggs behind the sentiment block, leaving plenty of room to write a personal message.
Although the phrase is different...and I just love this one "Have an Eggcellent Birthday"...this card has a VERY familiar design to some of the others. Changing the ribbon is another quick way for a different color theme too.
"Even if you are fried let your sunny side show". Notice the ribbon on that one is white and yellow...like an egg!
"You're bacon me crazy" and "You must be yolking" are clever ways of putting it!
And lastly, I'd like to show you another "Don't go bacon my heart" card (a few others were posted in prior blogs over the past couple of days).
The eyeballs! Thanks to Nuvo Crystal Drops I can make these types of eyeballs. Just drop a little white onto your image and while it is still wet, dab the black onto the surface and it creates the pupil.
For the inside of this card I stamped a slice of bacon with my black StazOn ink. I thought the "We need each other" stamp was a perfect sentiment to go with the front of the card.

Thanks for reading my blog. Enjoy your day.
