Nobody Need Wait

I love the mix of font sizes on this endearing sentiment saddled next wonderfully whimsy blooms. I colored the blooms minimally in shades of pink with reinker and blender pen and then added sponging around the edges for a bit more depth. This stamp is from the Zenspirations line, and it's called Nobody Need Wait.

Take Time to Savor

I was totally inspired by Amy's use of rounded corners and the Top Note Die when I made this card! :) The image is Take Time to Savor, from the Zenspirations line. I colored with Copics, then I sponged the edges and added some Stickles to the cattails. The paper is from the Earth Love Mini Deck by Cosmo Cricket.

Thanks for looking! :)

I used paper from DCWV Rock Star pad for the card base and all the layers, I love the gradient look to it!  The stamp is from the Nature Set and was simply stamped with brown ink and white gel pen accents were added.  Thanks for looking!

Caroling Fun & new Emerson Ladies...

More of Karen Stolper's leggy folks, this time caroling in shades of yellow and gray, just for something a little outside traditional holiday colors. The carolers and sentiment are from a great cling set called Holiday Fun. I stamped my images in Versafine Onyx Black and penciled in shadows and shades of yellow. Sponging around the edges to add dimension and create a "chimney sweep" smudge-y look.

I'm so excited about the new Emerson images that I received yesterday that I just have to share a few more that I created last night (seriously, I couldn't stop last night--I think I'm addicted to the Emerson ladies!):

Too Old

Wine Princess


Here's the best part--they're all 30% off right now!

These images and sentiment are from the "Nature" cling set. The stems are stamped with Versafine Sepia ink and the bird with "Surf" chalk ink.

Stickles were added to the stems for some added interest.


Thank You Set

This clean and simple Thank You card set was made with the Nature cling mounted stamp set. The focal image was stamped in SU! Mellow Moss ink and rock-and-rolled in Chocolate Chip. I tore and sponged the image panel. I stamped coordinating envelopes and packaged them in a set of four.

Thanks for taking a look! :)

You're a treat!

Karen Stolper's Halloween images are some of my favorite AAS stamps, especially this leggy girl from the cling set, Halloween 2. I colored my leggy girl with markers and added bits of sparkle with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen and Stickles on her jacket. The sentiment is computer generated, and patterned papers are from DCWV, Indian Summer Fall stack.
