Happy Friday!

Here is a card I made using a sweet stamp from Motivet. The squirrel's name is Doraline. The artist of this stamp, Marina Neira, has also illustrated several animal stamps for The Greeting Farm. You should check them out. They're adorable!

I used copic markers to colour in the image: E31, R32, Y21, E50, C2, B95. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up. I also used some Maya Road Trim around the circle. It's such beautiful pleated ribbon!

Hello Kitty!

I made this card as a response to my friend's Clean & Simple challenge. I used a retired stamp called Reeta from The Greeting Farm. I used SU Whisper White cardstock and Bazzill teal cardstock. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.

Cheeky Birthday

I made this card for my friend using a stamp from The Greeting Farm's Cheeky Collection. The decorative paper is from Tim Holtz, and the flowers were from the SU stamp, Fifth Avenue Floral. I stamped the flowers, watercoloured them and cut them out. The ribbon is my fave new ribbon. It's fantastic! It's from Maya Road and it's pleated. My hubby calls them "curtains". Hehee.

I used copic markers to colour in the stamped image. The colours I used were: E000, E00, E02, YG67, R81, B000, E35 and E04. The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up set called Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Angelic Wishes

I never regret purchasing digital stamps from Mo's Digital Pencil. Mo Manning's images are always so full of life. It's no surprise to learn that she's a children's illustrator and author. Here's a card I created using the "Sending Peace" digital stamp. It can be found here.

I made this card for my friend who'll be giving it to her mother-in-law for her birthday. She loves angels.

I used some fantastic new paper as an overlay on the blue cardstock. It's paper from a company called Shizen Designs. Gorgeous and shimmery too! I used copic markers to colour the image. The copic markers I used were: C2, E50, E000, E00, E35, B000 and B95. I also added some silver glitter to her dress too.

Vintage Birthday

My Grandma's birthday is coming up next week and I wanted to make her a special birthday card. I'm really diggin' this stamp from the Cheeky Collection at The Greeting Farm as I love all things vintage.

I used some shimmery red Bazzill cardstock, some Cosmo Cricket decorative paper, vanilla Bazzill cardstock, Ranger tea dye to sponge the edges, and a brad from Stampin' Up's vintage brad collection. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up as well. I added some black pleated ribbon, or as my hubby likes to call it, "curtains", to the bottom of the red cardstock strip.

Copic Markers used: R29, E000, E00, E02, R81, E35, YG63 (Eyes)

Round & round we go...

This weeks Saturday Sketch at ClubAnya was created by Pam Varnell and it's a circle card! I used a lid from a tin canister found in my kitchen since I don't own any fancy circle cutters.

I've been dying to use some polka dot paper I picked up from my recent trip to the stamp store and thought one of the stamps from TGF's Cheeky collection would be a good match. Sorta vintag-y but colourful too!

I used Ruby Red SU cardstock and some of my fave dp: Cosmo Cricket. I coloured in the image using copic markers and added a Cosmo Cricket ribbon for some added flair. I'm not sure if you can tell, but it's velvet. Perfect for our Cheeky girl!
