Friends 'Til The End

I just had to play in this week's 

I masked off my card to create my slant then I stamped my circles in multiple colors to create my pattern.   Then I used my latest toy from PTI to stamp my shadow stamping sentiment then underneath I used another sentiment from the set and just stamped once.  I did the same to the inside to match except I stamped off on a scrap piece of paper then stamped again creating a lighter sentiment. 

The two stamp sets I used are first my set I designed for A Jillian Vance Design

and from Papertrey Ink

New Tiddly Inks

There are new cuties at Tiddly Inks

Isn't she adorable?  I just love her.  I printed her out, cropped just the fruit twice (that I flipped the image) colored and cut out and popped up on top of my vellum panel.  

Tip: I printed my sentiment onto vellum cardstock. My printer would not print on the vellum alone but I found when I adhered the vellum to copy paper using removeable tape it would print just fine. 

Here's the inside. 
 I did an inside sentiment to match the front using the vellum.  I cropped and colored and cut out three butterflies (two I flipped) to add a little color to the inside. 

Stamps: Berry Sweet (Tiddly Inks)  Paper: Recollections White 110# (Michaels), Neenah Solar White 80# , Vellum Cardstock Ink:Printer, Copics: R20, R22, R24, R29, N4, N7, N10, YR23, Y17, Y21, YG21, YG23, YG25, YR04, YR07, YR09, B00, B01, B04, BG000, B24, B14, B29  Accessories: Licorice Divine Twine, Clear Button, Scotch Dimensional Tape, Score Tape

Meet Poppylicious
I printed her large enough so her flowers would reach the edge of my card.
That left pretty big spaces for coloring so I decided to paper piece instead.  It is quite easy to do you just print onto dp by adhering it to your copy paper using removeable tape and feeding into the printer.  (I used a 6x6 sheet, a tip: leave at least a 1/4 margin from top and side).

I did this inside similar 
to the first card except I used dp that matches the card front with vellum and added twine. 

Stamps: Poppylicious (Tiddly Inks)  Paper: Reccolections 110# white (Michaels), Vellum Cardstock Neenah Solar White 80# Ink: Printer, Copics: R22, R24, R29, E000, E00, E11, R20, N10, N7, N4, YR23, Y17, Y21, E37,  Accessories: Licorice Divine Twine
