My son is home from his week in New York City
and we are just are just enchanted by his photos and stories!
Since he's settling in,
I'm blogging and making cards!
One of the new things I promised myself I'd do in 2019 is several new series!
And I have to thank my daughter, Chrissy, for coming up
with the cute and clever title: Spot the Difference!
The purpose of this series is to use up my scraps, leftovers, throw-aways,
pieces on the table after the cardmaking!
So often I look around and see ... a piece of this, a piece of that,
and into the basket it goes.
Not. anymore. more!
I'll take all those pieces and create two cards!
They will be strikingly similar since it's using the same paper, dies, paint, etc
but yet different on their own accord.
I even made a cute graphic!
Using Honey Bee Stamps, I created two cards!
The basic idea and design is the same, just a little difference to spot!
I used my die from Neat and Tangled as a stencil (it cleans right off!),
my Catherine Pooler and Ranger Inks and blended them into the cardstock.
I trimmed the background stenciled piece for a smaller backdrop and popped the bunny up ~ the expression made me think of how I feel on a Monday!
For the Forest friends card, this was actually the oops!
After I saw it on the craft table,
I decided I simply couldn't just toss it out,
I scooped it back up, looked at it again and this card was created.
Can you SPOT the DIFFERENCE?
I hope you have enjoyed this fun new blog series premiere!
I'll be doing this a couple of times in the month ...
changed up a bit each time in different ways!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
