Stair Step Card

I made this for my little 5yr old niece who just had emergency brain surgery.  I wanted to make something 3-D and interactive for her.  I love how it came out.  I used Stampin' Up cardstock for the base and the SEI Chickadoo collection for the patterned paper.  The images are from LaLaLand Crafts and I used my Spectrum Noir pens to color them in.  The ribbon is from Paper Trey Ink and the chipboard letters are teal foil board from American Crafts.

Bloom Where Planted

Another fun card to make.  The image is from C.C. Designs Stamps Laugh Lines collection.  Isn't she adorable?  Colored with copic markers of course.  The patterned papers are from the Basic Grey June Bug collection.  I paper-pieced the boots on her for a little more dimension. The flowers, brads and ribbon are from my stash (I am trying to use up all of my old stuff to make room for new stuff and it is going to take me forever) and the stamped saying is from MPS Everday Life (I think).  I like this card so much I don't know if I can part with it.

Super Hero Birthday Cards

I made these for a couple of friends for their birthday in May.  Have I said how much I love these images?  I can't get enough of them!  Anyway I used copics for the coloring, My Mind's Eye papers for the girl and Basic Grey papers for the boy. And of course the images are from La La Land Crafts.  I also used miscellaneous things from my stash (BG letter stickers, ribbon, adhesive pearls and rhinestones).


Happy Mother's Day to all Moms!

I made and sold a bunch of these cards for Mother's day and I love how springy they look.  I just used up some old flowers I had in my stash and I used the basket stamp from Gina K's Holiday Basket stamp set. Colored it in with my copics, cut it out and pop dotted it up.  I used my Nestabilities oval dies and a miscellaneous Mother's day saying stamp that I had.  The paper is a retired collection from Crate that I have had for years.  I punched out some butterflies with my Martha Stewart's punches for the finishing touches.
