Photo goodness and Stamping goodness

BoldMy first goodness to share with you requires a stop at my daughter's blog to take a look at the adorable photos she took on a Pumpkin Patch trip with some of my grandkids. The focus was to be my youngest grandson, but you can see some glimpses of some of my other grandkids too. I took this one photo from her blog to share this cute little scene with four of our grandkids. Now for the Stamping goodness. This card is shown in the gallery at Pink Persimmon but I wanted to show you the details. All of the stamps are from Pink Persimmon. Are they cute or what? I love the look of a new set of alphabet stamps and I love the font on this super cute set. So I arranged these letters on an acrylic block and repeatedly stamped the alphabet to create a background on the notebook looking paper by Scenic Route. I punched the one side with the Stampin' Up journal punch so it looks like I tore my paper out of a notebook. The little girl from the Little Red Wagon set was stamped on white paper and again on this adorable red, plaid paper by October Afternoon. Then I just cut out the dress portion and glued that on top of the image stamped on the white paper. The other portions of the stamp were colored with Copic Markers. I attached the little girl and the wagon with foam tape because I just love the dimension this gives a card. The wagon is also coated with Aleene's Paper Glaze. I so love the epoxy look that gives and it makes it look like a new, shiny, red wagon. (ps, another great thing about Aleene's is that it is available at stores like Michaels so it is so easy to get ahold of)

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
