My Uniquely Colored Cow Card for You Today!

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a very uniquely colored version of one of the cows from the Over the Moon Stamp Set that I used on my card today.  I do love bold bright colors and sometimes you don't have to color things the way people except or think they should be.  For example on my card for today, I used some colors on the cow that just might make you laugh if you saw this cow in real life.  I mean can you imagine walking through a field and you look up and a purple and pink spotted cow was following you. I can visually see the reaction on your face, and hear you bust out in laughter; right!   But, it's a card and you want to make people laugh and feel good when they open it.  So why not be udderly fantastic with a little of your coloring choices;  I mean sometimes life is a little to serious and we all need a good laugh so why not.  Here's a look at my card.

I wanted to do something that was a little unexpected with the coloring of this cow since the sentiment reads "You're Udderly Fantastic!"  So I thought why not give the person that gets this card, because we all now that one person that is udderly fantastic, and that would love this card and it make their day!  Just like everytime I see the commercial of the two ladies at the drug store. And,  they see the girl with the purple hair!  You expect one reaction but one of them runs to the color aisle and grabs boxes of purple hair color.  In the very next scene you see them walking into their high school reunion with purple in their hair.   Then we see them having just the best time dancing, laughing, and having fun talking to everyone.  This is what this card makes me think of it makes me think of that one or two people I know that I could send this card to and they would just love that they got a card with a purple headed cow on it.

So one of my points is for you to be you!  If you want a purple headed and pink spotted cow on your card go for it!  And, you color that purple and pink spotted cow if you want to!  Life is way to serious to be so uptight all the time over little things like coloring a few spots on a cow.  Card making is about making people feel something, about making them feel better about themselves, and about letting them know that you love them.  Over the past few days the sympathy cards have been coming in and I love every single one of them. Because I know that they were made with love and support from the person that sent them.  So why not send someone a uniquely colored cow in the mail.  The person you send it to just may need that laugh and feeling of love at the time.  Card making is so much more than what colors we put down on paper.  It's about the love that we share through that little piece a love with a fold in the middle.


Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that I have inspired you a little to think outside the box a little with your coloring, and remember always be you no matter what your doing.  After all your friends love you for who you are not who they think you should be.  Have fun and color a purple headed pink and purple spotted cow today! You want regret it, because you just may need that little laugh. 
Happy Stampin'

Blogging Friends July Blog Hop: Theme Summer Lovin'


Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you my card for this month's Blogging Friends Blog Hop.  This month our theme was Summer Lovin'; and I must confess that every time I say or type it I think of GREASE.  But, that's not where I went with this month's theme.  I went just a little different.  I came up with a super cute card that is just adorable.  I used my favorite new stamp set Over the Moon.  Yes, that was my one must have stamp set when we could order it.  I was so excited when it was on the preorder for demonstrators, because I was not able to order it when I got my catalog in April it wasn't part of the products we could order.  It gives me the same feeling as the Little Piggy set did.  And I am so happy to own them both.  Here's a look at my card and I will stop going on about it.

Tips & Tricks: 

See I told you this was a super cute card.  I used the Love What You Do Stamp Set to stamp the cow skin pattern on the base of the card.  By the way the card base is a piece of Thick Whisper White cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2, and I turned it on it's side to make a side opening card.  I then took a piece of Whisper white and stamped the two cows in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in using my Stampin' Blends.  As far as what colors I used was Basic Black light and Smoky Slate dark to color in the cows spots.  I colored the mouth with Petal Pink light and dark blends, and their hooves with Smoky Slate light and dark.  For the cows bodies I used Balmy Blue light and dark on the one on the left and Purple posy on the one on the right. I used Granny Apple Green, and Flirty Flamingo for the flower and grass as well as the heart in the little speech bubble.  The sky was colored using Seaside Spray Light and dark and the color lifter.
I matted the colored piece on a piece of Basic Black cardstock and then used a little strip of basic black and versamark to stamp the sentiment.  I heat embossed the sentiment in White Embossing Powder, and popped it up using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.  I popped the Cow image up on Stampin' Dimensionals also.
On the inside of the card I stamped the third cow in Tuxedo Black ink.  I like the use of just the outline image on the inside in juxtaposition to the colored outside.  I think this gives a fun contrast to the entire card.
 Thanks for dropping by today.  If you need any of the supplies you have seen today you can pick them up in my online store.  If you are viewing this post on my Wordpress site you will need to click here to view the blog roll.
