It seems impossible

that tomorrow is May already! Seriously, where is the time going? And snow, lots of snow in some parts of the country. I can't seem to wrap my mind around all this. Going back over my stash I realize that I got caught up in Christmas, Valentines and Easter cards and put aside just non holiday cards. So today's post is a twofer from a SU class.

We took about six q-tips and dipped them in orange, blue  and yellow inks. Then banded them together with rubber bands and stamped inside a larger circle. That is card #1. Then added some circles in the same colors and stamped the verse in the blue. For the second card we used the panel we cut the smaller circle from over the card with the sailboat scene on it. I stamped that sentiment in orange. Very cool way to make the colorful dots. I hope I explained that well.




Be kind to one another.

  9. I don't know where the time goes either Brenda nor to I understand the weather any more. It is just crazy! Both cards are so fun and colorful Brenda! I have heard of doing this with the q-tips, but have never done it. Yours turned out so beautifully!!! I love the fun summer colors you guys used and I love the designs of both cards. Well done my friend, you guys do some cool things! Hugs, Brenda

  10. That is a fantastic way to make dots, and a lot faster than one by one! I love your colors and the design your created with the circles on your first card. What a great and festive way to frame the sail boat - almost like confetti!

  11. Now that is clever! Did you unbind them to re-ink before stamping again? Love the color combo & both cards are really fun! Early summer out here with lots of sun already!

  15. Awesome twofers, Brenda! This is such a fun design made with Q-tips. It really adds some fun to your cards. Love the first one with the large dotty circle with more circles and sentiment done is what I would call "ice cream colours". So pretty!!

    And what an awesome frame for your sweet sailboat card. Great sentiment to go with the circle aperture. xx
