Hop on Board the Angels Landing Express!!

If you have arrived here, I hope that means you have hopped aboard the Angels Landing Express. This is the second stop on the first official Angels Landing Blog Hop! If you missed the first stop on the hop, head back over to Judi's Blog and follow the links. Today each member of the Design Team is sharing projects created using two delightful new digital image sets for June, Toys on Wheels and Alphabet Train.





Clearly, I have used the Alphabet Train to create my card. I had so much fun playing with the pieces of this adorable set!. One of the fabulous things about digital images is you can size and place them anyway you want. I made my train cars small (about 1 inch tall on the letters) because I wanted my train to reach from side to side on a standard 5.5 inch x 4.25 inch card.

I also wanted my card to be bright and sassy so I used my Lime Rickey paper from BasicGrey as the jumping off point for my color pallet. The card front is Pumpkin Pie and the accent layer is Purely Pomegranate, both by Stampin' Up. The Pumpkin Pie card front was embossed with Cuttlebug Spots & Dots.

The digital images were printed on White Georgia Pacific card stock and colored with Prismacolor Pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I used my Pumpkin Pie marker to draw the string which ties the cars of the train together. I stamped speckles using Itty Bitty Backgrounds by Stampin' Up in both Pumpkin Pie and Pink Passion over the finished images. Finally, I added Magenta Stickles to the letters and pink rhinestones to the centers of the wheels for a little glitz and glamor!
