JessicaLynn Original Sneak Peek # 2

I chose the single puppy from this JessicaLynn Original Yorkie set for my version of a Kickstand Card. The Almost Amethyst heart is the largest of the heart shapes, then I went down two sizes for the Cool Caribbean heart. Both have been embossed using my Cuttlebug with the Nestabilities shapes and it works wonderfully.

The sentiment, "My Baby", is also from the Yorkie set and I used cello tape covering the word "Baby" and stamped "My". I cleaned the stamp, then cello taped "My" and stamped "Baby" because they are together in the set and I wanted them separated for this particular card. If you are going to use this method, please remember to remove the tape before stamping on your card. I tell you this little tip from personal experience, which is the best of all teachers!

The papers are Two Scoops by Basic Grey. Get used to seeing these papers because I am in love with them and I bought two packs because I just had a feeling one pack wasn't going to be enough. I added some pastel brads on the lower right portion of the card and some knitting yarn on the top for embellishments. I wanted this little lady to stand out on the card. I did learn that colouring with markers on coloured cardstock changes the marker colour. I'll probably not do that again, but, unfortunately, that's how I learn. The good news is that I DO LEARN!

Thanks for looking and don't forget the release of the JessicaLynn Original stamps on February 1st. You'll love them.

Barb you are a scream with your tape episode. Good tip though.
P.S. sounds like something I would
forget to do too.
Love the card and that gorgeous paper behind Baby.
