Baby card

I made this card for someone at work who is having a shower this weekend. I was going to stamp a little giraffe for the front of the card but then I was looking at the scraps from the background and just punched out circles from it to decorate the front instead. Super quick!

Stamps: None
CS: Pink Passion, Green Galore (SU!), Imaginisce patterned paper
Ink: none
Other: ribbon, circle punches, Big Shot machine, circle texture plate

Candy Monster

I picked up this cute little stamp set at Archiver's during Srapfest last weekend. It is a special set from Our Craft Lounge that comes with four Copic markers. I used just those four to color this in. After I finished the card I thought the upper left corner by the monster was too white so I colored and cut out some little candy corns that are in the set and popped them up on the front.
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black

Other: Copic Markers, Ribbon, Circle Punches

Copic Certified

I am now Copic Certified! The class was so much fun and I learned a lot. Marianne was awesome. She has so much knowledge stuffed into that little body! Check out her website if you would like to learn a ton about the Copic markers. I will be practicing and posting some tips that I learned later on.

Butterfly lip gloss

This is a terrible picture but....I never claimed I was a photographer.....just a stamper. :) Although there is no stamping on this project. Oops. Anyway, I traced out this butterfly using a very old Stampin' Up! template. I did one with patterned paper and one on vellum. After I cut them out I attached a lip gloss and some bling. So far my daughter and her friends have loved them. Hopefully I will sell a lot at my upcoming craft show this weekend!

Last card box....

For now at least. :) I found these little adhesive tiles at Home Depot. I really hate going to that store but when I get dragged there I manage to find something I can use. :)

Happy Birthday!

I picked up this cute stamp set from Stampendous when I was on vacation. I don't really like monkey's myself but any cards I make with them seem to sell very fast. :) This is a cute little guy popping out of the cake at least. The top is the front of the card and the bottom is the inside. It was all colored with Copic markers. In a couple of weeks I will be taking a Copic certification class. I can't wait to learn more tricks to use these markers.

Stamps: Changito BDay (Stampendous)
CS: Neenah Solar White, various patterned paper I had in my stash
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black
Other: Ribbon, Corner punch, Copics
