Willow - Whiff of Joy

This card was funny. It ended up being one of those cards that was taking forever to come together so I left it overnight and changed just a few things and now I'm okay with it. I used my Copics to color and once again, IRL, it's more vibrant. I need to learn how to take better pictures maybe?

Whiff Of Joy - Guardian Angel

This stamp was given to me by Christine and I finally finally got to ink it!! I bought the bg papers and glass stickers by Making Memories from Michaels last weekend. I need to get one of those card holders so I can take pictures without it leaning. Anyway, I also bought the heart punch from Michael's too. Colored her with Copics and added sparkles to her wings. I used my Copic glitter pen in a lot of places, including her headband, which you can't see. I glazed the hearts she's blowing for some dimension and added all the floating hearts with my glue pen. Love that thing!

Leaning Tower of Stella

I have been doing so much pink lately that I needed to break away and try some chocolate and blue. Love it! I remember seeing a challenge somewhere but can't find it now, which is okay. I colored Stella with Copics, added glitter to the cupcake and glazed the cherry. Yum yum!

Sketch Saturday

I'm sure some of you know what this stamp is called but I got it in a card with some other stamped images from my friend Sheri. I've been wanting to try out some Magnolia stamps to practice more "depth" with my creativeness. Doesn't that just sound artsy? Took up the challenge for Sketch Saturday which is this: To create this:

I colored her with Copics, used Liquid glaze on the Love letters (that I cut out with Quickutz) and glaze on her heart knee patch. The heart shape and flower are all Quickutz as well. The brown sparkly washers are from Stamping Bella.

One of a Kind

It's my hubby's birthday so since he's always such a good judge of my cards I wanted to give him an "ooohhh ahhhhh" card. SHE SHOOTS SHE SCORESSSSSSSS!! He loved it! I can't believe I pulled this one off cuz I'm tired with strep throat. Oooooh ick!! Apparently my creative juices aren't affected tho so that's great! hee hee On the inside it says Happy Birthday to a one of a kind! All Riley's are 3d's with double sided foam stickies and colored with Copics.

Stella Doing A Balancing Act

My friend Laurel introduced me to sketches and told me to be careful cuz once you start using them you might never stop. Ummmm.....yup!!! Just got this stamp on Friday and it was just screaming to be inked! I used i{heart}2stamp's sketch from Saturday and colored using my Copics. Hope you enjoy it!

Be Mine

I'm not sure what stamp this is but my friend Sheri sent it to me so I thought I'd make a man Valentine's for my hubby. It's a cute stamp. Oh and in the meatime I thought I'd use Mojo Monday's sketch.
I added this close up pic so you can see the embossed swirls on the red paper behind the heart and the 3d'ed beaver image that doesn't show very well on the above pic. Darn. And I even have hearts embossed on the white paper behind the beaver but hard to see. Tricky one!

Wrapped In Love

I just bought this stamp from my LSS - yes they sell Stamping Bella - we are so LUCKY!! I used the Sketch Saturday again - LOVE THEM [singing] and even impressed my husband with my card. hee hee He's a good judge as he doesn't humour me every time I bring him a card and is actually pretty good at critiquing them. Oh and he hunts, fishes and owns a 4-wheeler so being my tough guy, he impresses me with his comments every once in awhile. LMAO!!
