Hi & Hello!
Happy Saturday! Hope your weekend is off to a creative start. I was in a silly mood and made quite a silly card today. This dapper little fellow is Guiseppe Forks, the newest member of the Toodles & Binks Stamps family. The image comes with a thank you sentiment, which I didn't use as I went crazy with zee buttons and zee bows.
Isn't he sweet? I can just see him speaking with an accent. His first name is Italian, his last name could be what, British? But all I kept thinking was lederhosen. Maybe goats led me to Heidi on the mountain? *shrugs* So the ribbon and bows appeared as my homage to the suspenders worn with lederhosen. My stream of consciousness has quite a few bends :)
I colored the image with the Copics you see above after stamping twice onto Neenah cardstock so that I could pop the goat up for dimension.
I used a Bazzill Avalanche textured cardstock base (see goats, mountian tops - lederhosen!) with a peek of Core'dinations cardstock in a bright, crisp green. Bo Bunny Double Dot patterned paper in Powder Dot Blue tops the card.
The image itself is die cut with Spellbinder's Labels Four.
I used a Stampin' Up! Slot Punch on the die cut then slid some Bashful Blue Taffetta ribbon by Stampin' Up! into the slots, and added bows and Dew Drops. The flowers are topped with Crystal Stickles.
Toodles & Binks Stamps are made in the UK but they gladly ship internationally. They are sold online at Stamp Galaxy.
I think it is about time I posted a recipe, so look for that either later today or tomorrow.
Thank you so much for visiting!
