Angels Landing Blog Hop



Hi everyone! Today the Angels Landing team is having a blog hop to show you two new sets, Marching Band 1 and Marching Band 2. If you've come here by way of Alma's blog (Stamping Mutt), then you're right on track with the hop. If you want to start at the beginning of the hop or see the master list, click here on Judi's blog (Angels Landing Digital Stamps).

I used Marching Band 1 on my card today. The main image, music notes, and sentiment on the inside of the card are all part of this new set. I printed the trio of animals on Kraft CS and colored them with prisma pencils and gamsol. The music notes were also printed on Kraft CS and I traced over them with my black spica glitter pen. The sentiment tag and the black matting behind the main image are up on foam tape. The bows were tied with my Bow Easy.

Here's the inside of the card:

Oh!....some quick fitness babble....I got weighed on Monday at the gym and I lost 4 pounds during my first week!! Yay! Have you ever heard of adding a cucumber slice to a glass of water? It was a tip in this week's section of my binder. I just tried it yesterday...It may be more of a smell thing than a taste thing, but I like it! Anything that helps get all that water in, right?

Oooooh....love this card....the colors, the shape, and the adorable image!! Congrats on the 4 pounds!!! Never heard of the cucumber, but will give it a try. I keep a bottle of lemon juice in the fridge and when I'm really not wanting water, I put a squirt of lemon juice and a packet of splenda in my water bottle....instant lemonade! :)

Judi M said...

Your delicate coloring on this card is adorable. Those musical notes made a cute little tag, too. Even the inside is finished off beautifully.

My sister was totally into that cucumber/water idea about two summers ago, but I haven't fixed it since then. Congrats on your negative 4.

These Angels Landing stamps are so cute. Thanks for sharing exact details of how you made your card. I would not think of printing the animals on Kraft paper, but I would guess it helps with the coloring. Thanks for the ideas. Linda Slattery

What a sweet card! I just bought the Aussie's Animals set yesterday, now I may have to buy this one too. Do you know when it will be available? I didn't see it on the site yesterday. I love the layout of this card, it goes well with the image. I also love the Nestie you used, the ribbon, and that sweet not tag. Well done!
