The Meade Girls had so much fun with their first round of secret sisters that we decided to do it all over again!! This time I was Paula's secret sister. I had a blast sending her cards and little gifts over the past 3 months. On Saturday, we met to have lunch and to reveal our identities, and now that Paula knows it was me, I can post the creations that I made for her.
This first card is made using a digi-image that I purchased from Victoria Case. Isn't this little guy adorable?
I printed the image onto GP110 white cardstock and colored him using my beloved Copic Markers. Real Red and Basic Black cardstocks are from Stampin' Up, the yellow embossed paper is from Michael's. I'm not sure where I got the Treasured Friend sentiment. The ribbon is from my stash- most likely from the Offray Ribbon Outlet.
The second card that I sent her was in celebration of the arrival of summer...I used a digi-image from 2 Cute Rubber Stamps. I included a cute little ice cream cone appliqued dish towel along with the card. (I "borrowed" the picture that Paula took because I forgot to take one with the dishtowel).
How cute is this penguin?
I used Stampin' Up's Chocolate Chip, Gable Green and Pixie Pink cardstocks, Neenah 80# white cardstock and Making Memories' "Cheeky" patterned paper. It just reminded me of ice cream! The large brown button is SU and the small white one was from my button stash. For the marshmallow cream I used liquid applique but I just let it dry naturally instead of using a heat gun so that it had a smooth appearance like marshmallow cream. Note to self- buy a "mint" colored Copic marker!
This next card is made using an image that I found online. It is actually a child's coloring page that I shrunk to fit onto a card. I had colored this image a while back when several challenge sites were having challenges in tribute to Japan after the earthquake. I'm not sure why I never used it. I think she's beautiful!
Apricot Appeal and Real Red cardstocks are from Stampin' Up. The patterned paper is some that I received in a blog candy that I won a while back so I'm not sure who makes it. I thought it had a somewhat Asian feel to it. The black stick-on beads are from BasicCraft. The strip of Apricot Appeal was run through my Cuttlebug using the Square Lattice embossing folder. I love that folder!!
Here's another card that I sent Paula. The image is called Tender Tootsies from the Plump 'Uns line from Phindy's Place.
This is a new color cardstock for me...it's Peach Parfait from Stampin' Up. I thought it went well with the glitter DSP.
This is the last card that I sent Paula through the mail in secret. The image I "won" in a challenge on the Cards for Men challenge blog. The image is from the sponsor The Stamping Boutique. The image is so cute and it was so much fun to color. I hope Paula liked it.
I will post her "reveal gift" in a seperate blog post soon. Hope you'll come back to check it out!!
