Try It Out Tuesday #18 - Shape Up!


It's Tuesday and you know what that means - Try It Out Tuesday over at Follow Your Heart, Susana, from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design! Suzanne, our ever talented and challenge us leader, has tasked us with creating something other than a straight card and gave us the below sketch. Thank Goodness she allows us some creativity!



I've always loved Fairy Swing, one of the IBFS Fairies ever since I saw it at Susana's store. Had to have it and I think she's perfect for this challenge! Wouldn't it be wonderful to be so carefree that we could just swing on the flowers and just take in their sweet nectar and fragrance? I colored her with copics and used all kinds of Shimmerz on her and aren't the flowers, some of the new Petaloo's just to die for? I love them and can't wait to make something else so I can share them with you all!



I cut the base of the card out using my Cricut and the Storybook cartridge. I attached the front and back with a brad. I thought you'd like to see how the inside looks once you slide it to open it.

Don't forget to stop over at the blog and take a look at the new puzzle piece for one of the new stamps from Susana's new like of stamps by the wonderful artist Victoria Case, the first collection in the series in the "Hearts ane Hugs Collection". Everyone knows how much I love cute, but let me tell you, these stamps are just so over the top in the adorable department! I could sit and color these forever! There's going to be an opportunity for some lucky stamper to win the entire new collection and I'm so, so excited to help present these stamps to you! Don't for get to stop over at Susana's shop and pick up some of those cutie Smirks that are on sale for $1.50 (such a steal!) and some great new products like Smooch and these fabulous flowers!

Hope you enjoy the card and get ready for some fun stuff going on this week! I'd hate for you to miss out!
