New Stamps

When my daughter came back from visiting her boyfriend (in May), she brought me home an adorable stamp set by Sandylion. Other than playing around with the stamps, I had never made a card with them. So, for my brother's birthday, I chose the robot from the stamp set. He works in electronics and robotics, so I thought this was a cute choice for him. :) I stamped and coloured the robot and cut him out. I popped him up with some dimensional foam and stood him on the 'h' for 'happy'. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn. I didn't like the 'happy' coloured solid, so I decided to colour it halfway up.  My daughter liked the robot, but thought my card was too plain. :)
I am entering this in Papertake Weekly's Anything Goes challenge, and Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Put a Stamp On It Challenge (Don't forget to check out their STAMPtember event and blog hop going on this month!).
I am also entering this in Moxie Fab World's Card Design Handbook Week: The Movement Challenge. The movement is supposed to start at the main image, and then your eye is drawn to his foot on the 'h', and then across the word 'happy', and finally to the word 'birthday'. I think I really need a copy of the Card Design Handbook!
My second card is one I've already posted on my flickr account, but hadn't yet put on my blog. I just love this Hero Arts Newspaper Tulips stamp! I coloured it with my memento markers and stamped it so some of the stem bottom are off the paper. The sentiment is from PaperSmooches. 

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

  2. Jeanette the movement on your robot card is perfect. Before even reading your description, my eye followed the diagonal, linear path!

    Beautiful colors mixed among the flowers. Lovely design.
