Simple Birthday

Just a quick card I put together for a challenge.

The paper is from K&Company - the stamp was colored with Copics and Smooch metallic paint.

Getting There

I stamped Getting There in Memento Tuxedo Black, then I colored with Copics and sponged around the image panel. I applied Moonlight Smooch (Clearsnap) onto the chipboard flourish -- it gave it a mother-of-pearl appearance. Paper is Marrakech by BasicGrey.

Enjoy! :)

Time to Wine

I just love how this one turned out. I first stamped the image on vanilla cardstock and colored her in with Copic markers. The main image was then stamped again on the yellow dp and the colored image was paperpieced on the dp.
Thanks for looking

This image is by Karen Stolper and pairs well with the new sentiment by Kathleen Callei.. I stamped the image in Black Memento ink and colored it with Copics. I added some Diamond Glaze to the puddle and distressed the sentiment circle with some yellow chalk ink. A few dew drops were added as well.

Mom Words

I've created a variety of Mother's Day cards using American Art Stamp's set, Mom Words by Kathleene Callei. This is a stand alone set that is easily used with other stamps, such as Angel with Child, or with patterned paper as you see in the other three cards today.

The first two cards have a totally different feel although they feature identical layouts. You can easily customize your cards by selecting patterned paper that matches the recipient's personality and then simply add one of these versatile sentiments.

This following card features a paper piecing technique on the angel and child with added pearlescent glimmer to their wings, hair and bouquet with Smooch pearlized accent inks in Gold Lamme, Moonlight and Green Apple (Clearsnap).

The final card is probably my favorite because of it's off kilter-ness. I immediately thought of Christmas when I read this sentiment: Merry Mommy's Day, and wanted to somehow incorporate a Christmas theme. I (hopefully) achieved just that by stamping the sentiment in matching pink ink (Colorbox pigment ink in Razzberry) on a silver {Christmas} ball and giving it the appearance of hanging from a {razzberry} branch/bow.

Thanks for taking a peek!
