For You card using a stamp by Sarah Kay

OMG! I absolutely LOVE these stamps by Sarah Kay...I want more...LOL!!! No, seriously, these have to be one of the cutest stamps on the market and I only have 2 of them, can you believe it!?!?! I had so much fun coloring her in with my Copic markers. I wish the pink on her hat was a little more subtle but hey...I've only got 62 Copics and only 2 of them are light enough, almost too light...I mosaiced (is that even a word??) this card, I really like the mosaic look, it draws the eye to the image more, well I think it does. I inked up the edges of each 1" square with a distressing ink by Ranger Industries, it's the rose one, it gives it a more vintage look and I like that. I then mounted each square onto a piece of coordinating CS about 1/16 of an inch bigger than the original image so that nothing was showing on the outside, just the inside...I inked up the whole thing with ink from CTMH.

Anyway, I hope you like my newest creation! Leave a comment, it makes me smile!

Another Bella card sketch challenge!

Here is another one of my submissions for Bella's card sketch challenge. These are so much fun. On this card I used JUGGLABELLA, colored her in with my Copics and atyouspica glitter pens (the hearts), the paper is from Close To My Heart.

Thinking of You card

Here is my latest creation. Stamp set used was from Whiff Of Joy stamps. I love this stamp. Also used was Swirly Clouds, also from WOJ, and the dirt is a stamp set from Close To My Heart. I used my copics to color the image. I also used my Cuttlebug to emboss the CS background. I love how this card turned out. Another sentiment that could be used is "I miss you" but I chose "Thinking of you" for this one. I'm not sure what I will do with this card but I really wanted to try out my new stamps. I couldn't just stamp the image and color it, I had to turn it into something right?!?! I hope you like it!
