Fleur De Lis Birthday card

I made this birthday card using my new Spellbinders Fleur De Lis pendant dies. The border is a Fleur De Lis punch from EK Success. The pendants and Fleur De Lis design create a look of timeless elegance. The paper used for this card is Baja Breeeze, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, and Wild Raspberry DSP from K & Co. The flower is a pre-layered prima flower.

Fairy Tales ATC

I desgined this ATC for the "Fairy Tales" theme exchange at Stamp Your Art Out, a local rubber stamp store. This ATC also meets the color requirements for today's SCS CC232. The colors are Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla, and Taken with Teal. The image on this card is a new silhouette stamp from Great Impressions. I brushed Macropearl Pearl Ex and Broken China stickles over the image to give it a hint of fairy dust. The butterflies are punched from glitter paper and the scroll design is a Cuttlebug die.

New kitten fun

I made this card for a friend of mine who just got a 10-week old kitten. Each day I see her she "complains" about how the kitten is driving her crazy. Anyone who has ever had a kitten knows that to be true. The image on the card is a stamp from Stamp Smith. The image is of a real cat photo. I stamped it on glossy paper, so it almost looks just like a real photo. The sentiment on the inside of the card reads, "I may be difficult but, I'm cute!!"

"Creative Stamper" August layout challenge

I made this card for a layout challenge at a local stamp store called "Creative Stamper." Every month they have a layout challenge and customers vote for their favorite card. The monthly winner receives a $10 gift card to the store. So far, I have won twice! Each of my cards had images of cats on them, so perhaps this one could be a winner, as well.

This card was made with Penny Black's cat and sentiment. I used Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, and Pink Pirouette. Kiwi Kiss was recently retired and I really love this color. I recently took a Copic marker class to help me learn how to use and blend them. I colored the cat with three colors of Copics. I really like the effect these markers make.
