Ippity Hop With a Spokesbaby!

Oh my goodness! The weather was GLORIOUS on Sunday! We went to the park and had a picnic! :) Maybe all those sunny cards I've made gave the weather a hint. ;) First, I have to share this picture with you. I had all my Ippity inventory in a box on the floor and Parker decided he wanted to stamp too. Teehee. That is the Just Wanted to Say set. I might have to discount this set, there's a tiny bit of drool on it now. LOL.

Up next are the rest of the cards I made for VSN challenges. Can you believe I've held off on blogging them for this long? My blog has been kind of busy lately, which is GREAT!

This first card was for the challenge to use the faux metal technique on your card. I've never done this technique before. I have to admit, I don't use embossing powder a lot. It's messy and I'm not good at it. But I figured I should give it a try. This card uses Regal Greetings. You can kind of see the sentiment on the right side, it says "thanks." The paper is My Mind's Eye Lush and the ribbon is SU.

My next card was another technique challenge. Again, I don't do a lot of techniques. I guess, I'm just not very techy. This was for the Rolling Marble technique. It reminds me of doing art in elementary school. I did it on the Kraft paper here, the punch is EK Success. The teal paper was sprayed with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. The stamps are from Fishy Philosophy. I covered the fish in Sakura Glaze pen, my new favorite thing. Then I added some teal dew drops to finish.
