This is a stamp by Karen Stolper which was stamped with black versafine ink on cream cardstock and then watercolored with pencils, then distressed around the edges just a bit. I used rectangle nestabilites with the black cardstock and also used a Spellbinders tag die for the tag. The ribbon is attached with a rhinestone brad. The designer paper is just from my stash of bits.
Dew drops were added as well.

One Martini, Two Martini, Three Martini, Floor***

Hi everyone*** This image is designed by Emerson Quillin.. I stamped it with Majestic Blue Versafine on white cardstock, layered to a royal blue cardstock. I added some designer paper by Karen Foster, some prima flowers with royal blue brad and blue satin ribbon.

Make A Wish

The main image on this card is from Marsha McCarthy called "Sunflower". It was stamped on vanilla cardstock, then colored with Copic Markers and Spica Glitter pens (very hard to see the sparkle, but it's there IRL). The edges of all layers were distressed with a Heidi Swap edge distressor.

This is another American Art Stamp card made with Kathleene Callei's sentiment and Karen Stolper's image. This is a simple layout, geared towards a guy. I can think of a few who would enjoy a card like this!

Here Comes The Bride!

I had so much fun making this card today! I don't usually use much white, but I was bound and determined to have a white background on this card, and lots of sparkle! I stamped the image from American Art Stamp with Memento Ink on white PTI cardstock. I colored her with copic markers and used a Martha Stewart glue pen to adhere the Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the dress and veil. The main image was matted on PTI Lavender Moon and Plum Pudding (I LOVE this new color). The silky flower is from SU and I attached it to the card with a pearl tipped corsage pin and a PTI satin ribbon bow.

The edges of the main image and cardfront were edged with glitter. I used the thin double sided Scor-Tape from Scor-Pal and applied Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

The second card is designed as a Bridal Shower invitation. It's a pocket card with a blank inside sheet that is meant to be printed with the shower info, there is a little tab with the sentiment to pull the invitation out of the pocket.

The main image was colored with Copic markers and highlighted with Dazzling Diamonds. I was really covered with glitter today when I was done with these cards - I just sparkled in the sun!

Thanks for looking!

In a meeting...

I giggle every time I look at this stamp, so imagine the fun I had creating this card! The image is Emerson Quillin's In A Meeting. The card base is SU!'s Gable Green, followed by a layer of Cool Caribbean beneath the central image. The image was watercolored with an aquapainter and reinkers in colors to coordinate with the striped designer paper from K&Co.'s 4x6 Marcella pad. A pink crystal was added to her hat for a little fun bling.
By the way...she's enjoying a nice glass of Shiraz during her *working lunch*!

Just a note...

This is Karen Stolper's design, Writing, for American Art Stamp. She is stamped in Palette Burnt Umber, with a paper pieced dress and watercolored with SU! reinkers in Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip, Summer Sun and Blush Blossom. Crystal Effects was added to highlight the pencil and bottom of her dress. The sentiment is by Kathleen Callei.
