Here's my second preview for this week using a Little Darling stamp and one of my favorites from this release! You can check out all the previews this week at the Love to Stamp store blog. This one being showcased today is Jump ...

I've pared this stamp with the background image from Make it Crafty called Hilly Lane. It took a lot of time to color all that grass but I like how it turned out! Here's the background by itself...

Most of the card was colored so I didn't go all out on embellishments but still included a few of my favorites. ;D The felt sun is a die cut from My Favorite Things and a I cut it to contour the horizon of the background. Then the corners are those fabulous laser cut embellishments from Make it Crafty that some how appear on all my cards. ;D I put a few drops of Liquid Pearls on them for fun.

Angie is giving away a grand prize to one lucky commenter this week so you can get your hands on a few of these new releases! Also don't forget about the Little Darlings Challenge challenge where the rules were changed to include all images - the theme is all about summer

Lastly, the girl image was cut out and put on foam dots so she "jumps" off the background. Hope you enjoy the preview and that you liked my card. Happy Stamping this week!

Did you know? The Braille system is a method that is widely used by blind people to read and write, and was the first digital form of writing. Braille was devised in 1825 by Louis Braille, a blind Frenchman. Each Braille character, or cell, is made up of six dot positions, arranged in a rectangle containing two columns of three dots each. A dot may be raised at any of the six positions to form sixty-four (26) possible subsets, including the arrangement in which no dots are raised.
