Let the cute begin...

I wanted this card to be fairly simple because I know for sure its going to end up in the trash, so there is no bells and whistles. The striped paper is by Pebbles Inc. The brocade blue card base measures 5x4.25. The rectangle layers are certainly celery, bordering blue and then the striped paper. My main image is layered onto a barley banana long rectangle nestie.

Stamps: Big on spring
Paper: certainly celery, bordering blue, brocade blue, barley banana, striped
Ink: Adirondack pitch black
Markers: Certainly celery, bordering blue, brocade blue, banana

Eloise Greengrass..

I made this card with my mom in mind. Purple is her favorite color and I just love perfect plum, certainly celery and soft sky together! I used SU's retired rub-ons for the sentiment and flower vine. I know the picture is dark but it was the only wayI could get the glitter to show up. I used my spica glitter pen on her dress and flower.

Stamps: Eloise Greengrass
Paper: Basic gray, certainly celery, soft sky, perfect plum, Iridescent white
Ink: Graphite black
Copics: BG10, YG11, YG03, R32, R22, BV00, BV02, V17.

Wooo Hooo..

So I decided that if I wanted Copics I'd have to order them on my own, so I did! I was so happy when brown showed up at my door, I immediately started stamping and coloring images. I colored 7 images I think? Three of which ended up in the trash. Ok, so to my card. I inked up my cakeabella with Adirondack espresso ink (BTW I know a lot of ya'll love brilliance graphite black BUUUT I HATE it; its just too "juicy"and i hate having to heat set it) since I didn't have to heat set my espresso ink I started to color. For her apron I used R37 and R59. I used BG01 and BG03 for the icing on top andYG69 and G85 for bottom icing. Her slacks are colored with E33 and E35.

Stamps: Cakeabella
Ink: Jim Holtz Adirondack espresso
Paper: Solar white, kraft, bali breeze
Copics: R37, R59, BG01, BG03, YG69, G85, E33, E35

Flower Girl..

I recently discovered that my local stamp store now carries the current line of Elzybells, much to my husbands enjoyment lol! The layout for this card is from Beates WSC and the patterned paper is SU's summer picnic. The main image was water colored only because my husband didn't get my numerous hints for COPIC markers as my mothers day gift; oh wait that's right, he said I was out of my mind! For all the mothers out in cyber land that are reading my blog today "HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!"
