Hello, Gorjuss!




Just a quick post to share a card that I made with the Up, Up and Away Gorjuss girl image from Sugar Nellie. When I saw Amy's card here, and Emma's giveaway of the stamp here, I thought, "I think I have that stamp..." and went hunting for it...and found it!



I colored her with Copics and used the Nestabilities Label 8 die to cut around her, then colored an extra balloon and mounted it so it goes beyond the edge of the card. After masking her, I stamped the cloud background and added another cloud shape with the "hello".



Now I have another card to send to Jennifer's ongoing Cards for Kids card drive. Thanks to Amy and Emma for reminding me that I had the stamp all along.

Hope you're all having a great weekend!




Stamps: Sugar Nellie, Hero Arts
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Memento, Hero Arts shadow ink
Other: Copics, Nestabilities, Sizzix embossing folder,
pop dots, sheer ribbon
