Best Of Friends!

I am a huge fan of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and when I saw this stamp set I knew I had to have it!!  This stamp set is called “Squishy Hugs”.  It comes with three stamps and a whole bunch of sentiments!


So, now it’s confession time….I decided to try for the first time the ‘no lines’ technique.  Well, I wasn’t exactly pleased with it…..I had my card all finished but when I took some pictures you could see all my missteps!  I think I really need to practice that technique a lot more. So, I colored the image again and I cut it out and pasted the girls to the card. So, now I just noticed that there is a few places where a tiny bit of white shows up from where I didn’t cut quite close enough…..I’m calling them highlights!

I crocheted my flower and added a brad for the center.  The flower was crocheted using a very tiny hook and embroidery floss.  It usually takes one whole skein.  I believe this one was done using three strands instead of the six.  I had completely forgotten that I had done a whole bunch of these ages ago and found them when I was looking for something else….that always happens!  The doily is a die from Cheery Lynn, the butterflies and leaves are punches by Martha Stewart and my designer papers are just left overs I had hanging around!

  12. Awesome card and I love the images. I have not tried no line as it scares me just the thought. I am so glad you joined us at Aud Sentiments.

  13. What a lovely card! I like the idea of decoupaging the girls on the top - we don't often do that with stamps and it's a useful way of covering something we aren't happy with. Thank you for sharing it with us at Crafty Cardmakers & more...
