Spring Short Stack

This is a card that appeared to me in a dream and I had to jump out of bed to sketch it out.  The next day, I was happy that my sketch was legible enough to follow and I made this card using Spring Short Stack by Stampendous.

These are the Copic marks I used on this:

Year of the Dog

Happy New Year!  I've created some bookmarks to give away this year in my red envelopes and this is the first one I made. I was going for a off-set print look where the black and red ink are offset if they were printed by a press.  It's something I'm experimenting with and I think this one turned out just so-so.  But it'll make a great bookmark.  :D

I've used Sister Stamp's Year of the Dog stamp and drew the two lanterns on sketch paper. The Good Luck sentiment is Make it Crafty chipboard embellishment.

Claudia's Kitty

It's Customer Appreciation Day at Little Miss Muffet Stamps where you'll find lots of inspiration and also three new images released in the store. Plus there is a coupon code for 20% OFF orders from now until Sunday evening (Central Texas time).

For my project, I've pulled a rubber stamp from my stash and used Claudia's Kitty from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  For the background around the image, I used a Make it Crafty chipboard embellishment frame.

These are the Copic markers I used on Claudia's Kitty:

Heart Throb Kit

I've splurged with another kit from Queen & Company and bought their Heart Throb Kit. I was disappointed the kit didn't come with the acrylic words any more but I was surprised at how well the papers work together. I also think the hearts were easier to create with than the ornaments. But all in all, they were both fun kits to work with.

Here's another card I created with the Heart Throb Kit from Queen & Company. I got the card layout and idea from Mary Ann Maldonado on the Queen DT.  Thanks for the inspiration!

From Me to You

Happy Heart Day!  For my project today, I used the rubber stamp From Me to You from Whimsy Stamps. I finally found the right image and use for the background paper with the paper airplanes.  It's been sitting on my desk for a while but just hasn't quite fit into anything.  I like how it turned out with this image because of the way her hair is drawn it looks like there is a slight breeze to the scene.

The sentiment is Make it Crafty chipboard embellishment. 
The paper is Echo Park Head Over Heels. 

Here are the Copic markers I used on From Me to You:

T3, 5, 7
E000, 30, 31, 43, R11
C2, 3, BV23
RV10, 11, 13
B02, 93, BG32
R05, 39

The shirt is paper pieced and the hearts on the envelope are done with a white gel pen. On the face, I added a small toothy grin as that spot was empty.  I thought this would bring out a sweet little girl expression which was the age group I was aiming for.  So I used very little red on her cheeks too.

Birthday Memories - Party Animals

I've used the Birthday Memories designer series papers from Stampin' Up! to create this project and followed an idea I got from the cake and banner in the SU promotional display.  I also used some Make it Crafty chipboard embellishments for the sentiment and a couple gems for sparkle.  This is one of my favorite cards from the series because I love all the animals on there.

Ai with Taiko Drum

I found some origami paper of Mount Fuji at Daiso and thought it would be fun to use. So I came home and made a bookmark with Ai with Taiko Drum by Sister Stamps.  I actually liked how it turned out so this might be the one I keep this year.

The sentiment is a Make it Crafty chipboard embellishment.
