Gratitude Day 11: Urgent care is today’s gratitude. Thank goodness there are places open for when your child gets sick outside of office hours. The little man has double ear infections. Poor thing. I am thankful for the doctors, nurses, and other professionals that take care of our families at crazy hours.
So, with the little man being sick and my sister and hubby here for a visit, today’s peek is going to be short. I know that you will all understand, family first! :)
I’ve Got Your Number is a fantastic set of numbers and a few sentiments. There are large numbers, which are perfect for coloring or paper piecing, and small numbers, great for making backgrounds and adding numbers in small places. Not to mention how fabulously it works with the other set we are releasing this month. :)
Sassafras Lass papers inspired this card. I loved the unique color palette and I love any excuse to make something girly.
I stamped the numbers right on the patterned paper and colored the in with a Copic marker. (R24) Keep in mind when you color on patterned paper, its different than your usual coloring paper, its thinner and can bleed easily.
And my favorite font was used to create the sentiments in this set. This one would be great to create birthday party invitations.
The background was really fun to stamp. I placed all my small numbers on a large acrylic block. I stamped them onto a piece of white cardstock and heat embossed them in red embossing powder. Then I stamped them again and heat embossed with yellow powder. Distress ink was applied all over the cardstock. And then a darker color was added just to the edges.
What are you grateful for today? thanks for stopping by!
