EIC #102 {Global Child Collection}

Hello, friends:}


Today starts another challenge over at EtsyInspired. I just love visiting all your sites and looking at your wonderful challenge cards!! Last week's EIC cards--ROCKED! I can't wait to see what you create this week!! 


This week's featured Etsy store is Global Child Collection. What a fabulous store--fun prints in several languages and the store is doing a fund raiser to help the Gulf Restoration!! Our sponsor this week is Digi Doodle Shop. These images are super cute! Just love being able to print any size of an image that you want! LOVE it!


I was inspired by this tree photo for my first card. I really wanted to paper piece the leaves--just like the image. I even used Sakura pens to make the dots around the circles and more dimension. There is also glitter stickles on some of the diamonds. The stamps are from Unity's Feb. KOTM, Key to Joy, and Ippity's Fall For You. Just love this mini card:}


This next card was inspired by this owl print! I LOVE my owls:) I used my new August KOTM from Unity! Love that owl--I paper pieced both owls and added glossy accents for fun. I left it blank with no sentiment because I couldn't decide which saying I wanted. Let me know if you think of something good!


My last card is super fun! I was inspired by these wall cards. I created the bunny card. I just got this image from Limelight! LOVE it! It is a Unity wood stamp. I also used my polka dot stamp from Unity for the letter "b". I flocked the bunny's ears and part of his belly! How fun and cute:} LOVE LOVE LOVE it!


That's it for me today--but don't worry!! The EIC DT has created some amazing projects to share with you!! Be sure to stop by all their blogs and leave some love!!

OMG!!! It's soooo official--I am SOOOO jealous!! I love those paper pieced owls!! They're the cutest! They totally work for the Inspiration piece, and OMG!!! That tree is divine!! I love the fact that you use all your new stamps on these cards, I love them!! Those Ippity stamps are too adorable. Is it a direct seller kinda thing like Stampin Up?

Your cards are sooo cute.....*sigh* must take notes from you. I do wish we lived closer! It'd be like when you were a kid and you would go to your friend's house and play with all their toys, cause toys are always better at someone else's house, except now it would be stamps!! hahaha
LOVE IT!!!

Emily Branch said...

Oh, yes.....and Happy Anniversary to Carrel and Jessica.....I'd love to win a new stamp! You've inspired me! Maybe your Etsy shop will make the Challenge blog! Hee hee hee!

You smart girl!! WOW! You never cease to amaze me....I was blown away... AGAIN! Love the tree card (those pop-up dimensions are super lovely)!

Your toys are definitely better than mine (LOL)!! PS: Your bunny card is cute!!!! xoxo

These are too adorable! What a great inspiration you had for the tree. I like the different pattern papers you used. I have to say my heart went with the bunny though because it is so cute! Is that a little fluff I see on his belly? Oh too sweet! great cards!

Dear Carrel and Jessica wishing you ultimate happiness and lots of love for many years to come!
