Card Positioning Systems and My Favorite Things stamps

Is this little guy CUTE!!?? My Favorite Things stamps was the sponsor this week for CPS and I picked out a little set of jungle animals, It's A Jungle Out There. These is a clear set of stamps and there are so many images on this one sheet.
1. I stamped my little elephant and embossed him with black embossing powder. I usually like to do that so that now whatever else I do for coloring, etc., he will really stand out.
2. I colored him in with Copic markers. These markers are great for doing some shading.
3. I stamped the little leaf stamp many times all around the border.
4. I colored in some of those leaves with a Copic marker
5. I put a mask over the colored elephant and sprayed the entire piece with Key Lime Pie Glimmer Mist. (To create a mask, simple stamp the image on a piece of lightweight paper like computer paper and cut that out. When you lay that over your original image it will protect it from whatever else you are going to do)
6. The elephant was given a coat of Gloss Accents by Ranger.
7. As I assembled my card, before I added my stamped piece, I sprayed the entire front of the card with a spritz of Sapphire Glimmer Mist. I didn't want to cover the white cardstock and the striped patterned paper, I just wanted a little bit of an accent with the spray.
8. A piece of twine tied around the card gave the finishing touch.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

  6. Hi Linda! Thank you so much for the sweet comment you left on my blog. I have to chuckle inside and realize what a small world it is. Today, I recieved my comp issue of Card Creations 6 because my original one got lost in the mail and while I was searching for the two baby cards I had in there, I saw the adorable card you made. Then...I just linked back to your blog and noticed that you design for Tweety Jill as well. So do I! Isn't that funny? I thought your name seemed familiar and sure enough, it is because I see it on the Tweety Jill design team page. Thanks again for your sweet comment! I love your elephant card also! You have done such a great job! Hugs, Kelly
