Love (and Blog Candy) is All you Need

Have you seen Carolyn's set Dr. Feelgood?! I crack up every time I see this stamp! But I also really like all the little images that go with it like the champages glasses,hearts and greetings (if you want to make the card without "the housecall"!) I was so glad I finally had some time alone to play with the doctor yesterday, heh heh! This is the first card I made with it, and I wanted to incorporate the bandaid idea I had for Papertrey's guest stamper contest by using one of their label stamps to make a bandaid (Am I the only one who looks at the label stamps and thinks"bandaid"?!) I just think it's perfect with this set. I stamped the labels from Papertrey's Holiday Treats randomly for my background, going off the edges, and stamped out two more to cut out. The new heart rain dots from Gina K's store (you can find those too at the link above) fit perfectly in the round window. (I'm SO glad ordered these! You can bet you'll be seeing some in the spring colors are my cards and projects VERY soon!) I put one bandaid on the lower corner with dimensionals, and wrapped the second around the top corner. I think this helps with the illusion that they are real bandaids (since you stick them on things), and this way they look like they are securing my focal point to the card. I added the "hey baby" from "Just So hippy" to the clipboard which is also mounted on dimensionals. It may be hard to see in the pic, but I wanted the little clip on the board to be dimensional as well, so I stamped out a second clipboard, cut out the clip, and attached it with a rolled up mini glue dot(dimensionals are too big, but rolling the glue dot worked and gives it the thickness of a dimensional). I bent it forward a little, and it really looks like a clip holding the paper on!



Be sure to check back for more doctor visits soon! ;) Check back TOMORROW to enter to win BLOG CANDY!

PS I have a project to post I am SO excited about, but finishing it depends on the arrival of a few new Palette Ink Pads, crossing my fingers they come tomorrow(post already came today, no such luck, wahhh)!! They ARE in the mail, though, so it should be by the weekend at the latest, can't wait to share! :) (hmmm, what could I be planning with those ink pads ...?)
