TMS#81: Folded Frame Cards

Good morning and "Happy Tuesday"! It's always fun when Tuesday rolls around, because we have another fun challenge from Melissa at Tuesday Morning Sketches! This week there will be no sketch...our challenge is to make a "Folded Frame" card. Click here to see a tutorial. Our sponsor this week is Stamp Fairy.

I choose my image from the "Freebies" section. I thought he was quite quirky and fun! I colored the little guy with pencils, cut him out, and then glittered up the turquoise areas. To finish him off, I used 2 googlie eyes...love those googlie eyes!

I used some really neat DP from Daisy Bucket Designs; I found it at a scrapbooking store for 25 cents a sheet! I just love bargains like that! Anyway, it has the nicest texture, and it's double sided.

Image: Stamp Fairy Digital Image
Sentiment: Stampendous "Changito in Space" Clear Set
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU! Black Marker
Paper: G.P. 110, PTI Hawaiian Shores and Dark Chocolate, Daisy Bucket Designs DP
Embellies: Bella Dots, Marthat Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter, Googlie Eyes (Hobby Lobby)
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Scor-Pal, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, EK Success 3D Dots

When I was working on this card, my 10 year old son asked if this was a Suzy's Zoo stamp. Are you familiar with Suzy's Zoo? The images are adorable! I was surprised to know my son was familiar with them. After I finished the card, I asked what he thought.... He said he liked it, but indicated he was too old for a card like this! LOL I was thinking I was so clever to make a "little man" card...I guess my little man is growing up!

Check out the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has come up with....now, it's your turn! I can't wait to see what you come up with (I would really love to see some cards made with this cute little image---don't forget, he's a freebie!). Remember, this week is a judged challenge so there's a prize up for grabs!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

So cute Angela! Love the googlie eyes, I would have thought it would be perfect for a little man, too. I guess they grow up faster than we think, lol. Sounds like your DS is a crafter in the making. Love the look of the cool fold you used, I need to try that!
