Ahhh, Happpy, happy Friday everyone!! It's the weekend again, yippee!! Can you believe it will be March 1st on Sunday? Spring is coming for sure now, I just knows it :o) Now I won't have to hunt down that groundhog & make him disappear, hee hee! I've got a couple of cards to show you today--I am in my end of month "MADNESS" right now trying to finish projects & get sneak peeks ready & all that! ARGHHHHH---stressful for sure!
Anywho, make sure and check back this weekend because I'll have some H&M Stamp's sneakie peekies, Magnolia March sketch & Whiff of Joy's Project of the Month for ya!!
Can I just say I love, love this dp by Basic Grey "Marrakech"--the colors are so cheerful & the prints are just bee-u-tiful! I was looking at some new Karen Lockhart stamps I had recieved from my friend Susana's store & knew that the pattern on this stamp "Apples in Chintz" would go wonderfully with this fun dp! So I colored up my image with my Copics to match (I am doing a video tutorial next week on how I colored this image in case you're interested)!
I added a fun hatpin from Making Memories (got a package of them at Michaels) and added some fun beads to match! This is my new obssession--so you might be seeing alot more hatpins on my projects, hee hee---love 'em!! If anyone knows where I can find "endcaps" for the hatpins so they don't injure someone, lol---please let me know cuz' I can't find them anywhere!
Just a close-up view of the image---I added some diamond glaze to my apples to make them all nice & shiny!
Second card for today uses another lovely image from Whiff of Joy's Spring Collection. This stamp is "Oakley w/ Slipover" and I think he's such a cute lil' boy image! I wanted to use him to make a fun boy's birthday card which is always a bit of a struggle for me. I colored him up to match this fun dp from Piggy Tales and the sentiment is from PTI's "Limitless Labels". I drew a little grassy mound for him to sit upon (this tutorial with Copics will be up soon as part of a "Tips & Tricks" segment I'll be doing too).
If you haven't had a chance, check out my Copic tutorials that are listed on my sidebar under "Copic Bundle Tutorials"! You can purchase each bundle of Sketch Copics at Susana's Custom Art & Card Design---a great way to start off your Copic Collection!
