Two Peas is one of my favorite websites that I've been a part of since 2002. Sometimes I go for long periods of time without visiting there. but I always come back. This week there has been a member generated stamping "celebration" (Winterfest 2012) with lots of challenges and new ideas for creating. The first one here was for "Buttons and Bows" where you are suppose to use both buttons and bows on a card. Bows are one of my favorite things, and I have tons of buttons, so i just had to do it. The little girl is a new digi stamp that i just got yesterday from Bugaboo. I was a little dissappointed in their stamps because the lines are so bold, unlike most of the others I have gotten from Mo Manning. But they are really cute once you get them colored. I had quite a time with the tail on the cat though. I kept coloring it the same color as the dress. After two failed attempts I decided to make the kitty black, thus covering up the blue tail. I used a little colorless blended on the center of the tail to give it a little depth. The sentiment stamp was a dollar stamp that I got from Michael's yesterday. It had a flower on it, but I did a little surgery on it, and now have two stamps :). Ribbon is also from Michael's $1 clearance. Felt flowers are cut with a sizzix die. I had to run them through several times and them use scissors to finish them.
