There is just something that comes over me when I have a My Minds Eye paper pack in my hand. It's a sort of glazed over look while my mind is filling with endless possibilities. I had bought this one (My Minds Eye Portobello Road) a little while ago. So when I found out about the birth of my friends baby boy my hands instantly reached for this pad. Because it has the PERFECT shade of blue for a little boy card.
I just love the look of those Tim Holtz flock of birds stamp against the flags. I put glossy accents over them to make them stand out a little more.
Here is the matching card I made for the new baby's amazing Mommie.
And as a little push present for the glowing mommie. I made her a lovely little clock hand hair comb for her amazing red hair. I have another shop where I make jewelry, hair accessories, and tiaras called EJPcreations.
I found a new favorite movie this weekend. It's called "This Must Be The Place." I've been eyeballing it for quite sometime now, but the Sean Penn-ness of it kept making me walk on by. Sean Penn playing a goth Robert Smith like rock star, and hunting down his fathers Nazi tormentor? But it was unbelievably good and David Byrne is in it with a speaking role and everything!
Ooooooooh I got so many new punches I just had to try them all out!!!! And that is what happened to this tag. Oh this was just so much fun to make. I just went crazy on this poor little piece of paper. Lets see... first I made the tag. I think I traced an old one and enlarged it. Then I stamped the background with versamark ink to give it a pretty shadow effect, and not to make it too busy. Cuz I knew I was going to be adding tons, and tons of stuff to the front. Then I made some ribbon edged banners. And stamped out some little fun embellishments with one of my new stamping up stamps. Then I just finished it off with tons of fun elements EVERYWHERE!!! I ended up putting this on a present for my Mom's birthday. She had so much fun looking at all the different elements.
