Today starts Softpencil's Customer Blog Hop!



Hello and thank you for stopping by on your blog hop today!  It's so fun to create cards using Elizabeth's super adorable images!  I hope you will find some inspiration along your hop and have a fun time doing along the way.  Enjoy your hop, hop, hopping!!! :-)

If you have arrived here from Softpencil's blog you're on the right track - I'm the first stop! Woot woot!! :-)  If you didn't arrive here from Softpencil, please go back and start there. 

I'm posting these for the first time, but I do have a couple of other Softpencil designs as well - you can find the older ones by clicking on the Softepencil tag on my sidebar.  Thanks for looking!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For this card I used the "Happy Teddy Bear" digi.  I colored the digi with Prismacolor pencils.  I used Cuttlebug "D'vine Swirls" to emboss the pink background cardstock.  I used green cardstock as a mat for the digi, but I also layered a ripped piece on the bottom to give the illusion of grass.  (I'm not a fan of how my grass comes out when colored, so I tried this instead - even though I did color the grass in the digi lol)  I tried to show it in the second picture, but again, it still didn't come out that well....but I digress... on the bottom of the bear's dress I used some clear/white glitter just to give it a little dimension. 



For my next card I used one of Softpencil's many girl stamps - I just love her!  Again, with the glitter glue I added some dimension to her bows.  I also had fun with my new SU border punch.  A ribbon and some stick on bling and I'm good to go!  Enjoy!




For my final card I used one of the freebies - a unicorn.  Once again (okay, it's a new toy, can you tell?) I used glitter glue on my card.  Some gold for the horn, wings and hooves, and some blue for the eye.  I also had some sequins I got at a tag sale that I used since they just happened to be gold :-)  I put some in the swirls of the embossed background.  I made this card for my 6 yr old daughter's friend's b-day coming up.  Thanks for looking! :-)



Thank you for visiting my blog! I hope you enjoyed your stay and will come back again soon :-)

Have fun hopping along and don't forget to end up back at Softpencil's blog...and leave some love along the way! :-)

Enjoy your day!
