Picture Perfect

Hi folks!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards.

I've had fun working with the Selfie Brads by Eyelet Outlet, so I decided to work with them again today.  Those little cell phones are so adorable!

In addition, I used a stamp set by Art Impressions.  I think this stamp and brads were made for each other.  In fact, together they're Picture Perfect!  What do you think?

I can relate to women "of a certain age", who don't necessarily hear what's being said.  Sometimes it's like that game of  Whisper Down the Lane.  So, I thought I'd have a little fun with these girlfriends...having a conversation...of sorts.  Here's a closer look at what they're saying:


With a bit of masking, I eliminated the cell phone from the stamped image and inserted the brad.  And another look at the cellphone...doesn't it fit in her hand perfectly?

I cut the card front in my Silhouette just for something a little different.  I actually used a balloon shape as a template.  For a bit of cheerful color, I cut a mat of Whisper White and covered it with Striped Washi Tape.  I added it to a mat of Melon Mambo card stock, allowing just a sliver of color to show.

I added the Selfie brad and tucked the banner underneath.  And then, befitting these stylish ladies, I added a Clear Jewel Bling Strip around the perimeter.  Taking my cue from the washi tape, I colored the bling with Copic markers...they take color beautifully.

 Inside, a cute sentiment which plays off the image:

I purchased a number of stamps at Art Impressions because I have grand plans of including them in my Eyelet Outlet projects.  So, if you like them, stay tuned!
