Cheep Talk

June 15, 2009 | 1 comment

I don’t tend to create a lot of ‘cute’ cards as you may have noticed and mainly use flowers in my cards. In March when demonstrators were given a few select items that we could order from the upcoming IB&C (now released IB&C) one of the sets included was Good Friends. Now I thought the bird was quite cute but seeing it was so large I didn’t think I would use it but I was hoping we’d get the smaller set called Cheep Talk in the full IB&C and of course we did. So yes I ordered it. (I also have Good Friends after using my downlines set and liking it. Surprise, Surprise…..)

At present I have a few sets on my stamp tables that I am making sure I use before going back to some others that have already seen a fair bit of ink. I’m determined not to have any uninked sets or minimally used sets in my collection from the current IB&C this time around. One of the sets on my table is Cheep Talk.

In the last couple of days in what little spare time I’ve had I’ve created 2 cards using this set.

For this first card I initially chose another Splitcoast Sketch Challenge #SC229 and for colours I went with those in the Good Morning Sunshine DSP I chose to use, but as I was sitting the layers on the card to see if I liked it before adhering, I decided to change it and also add some more DSP that I initially wasn’t going to use. The end result is this.

Cheep Talk 1

and for the inside of this card I’ve added a little matching dsp
