One of my mom's friends from Facebook had asked mom to ask me to make her 2 Thank You cards. The challenge was to use those "dolls" that I color for cards (she really likes those) and to show a house and butterflies, etc. Well, the only problem was that the only house stamps I had were very tiny from Stampin' Up. I was not happy with using those, so instead I decided to create the ILLUSION that there was a house, although the cards never show it. LOL.
The results, I thought, were so very cool!!

The first card I made by embossing a cloud background stamp on some already colored paper by Authentique. The effect was so cool!! I added punched out Fiskars clouds, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, some punched out grass by Fiskars and a white picket fence on the corner that "leads" to the house. LOL. Basically the girl sitting on the grass (and I'm sorry that I don't know the name of that stamp; it was given to me in a RAK by one of my crafty sisters DeNetra, and it came just as is..), in her backyard enjoying the view and her flowers. =)
The second card is using the Cosmo Cricket "Clementine" paper pad, and layering pieces over each other. The image is a digital stamp that I purchased on Etsy and is made by My Favorite Things. I think I paid less than $2.00 for it and have a few in my stash. It was the perfect stamp to use to create the ILLUSION that somewhere nearby there is a house, being that she's at the mailbox. hehehe... I'm so sneaky!! The red butterfly was given to me in a RAK by another scrappy sister of mine, Connie, and fit perfectly on the card. I almost put a flower, but really I didn't want to make the card so bulky.
So those are my 2 cards. I hope she likes them. She wanted to give them to 2 people who helped her buy a house recently, so hopefully they enjoy the card as well.
