I just got my new copics. I ordered them from the Carpe Diem store. Great prices, quick shipping! I love this image from Whipper Snapper and I used the wood grain background again with this card. This stamp is big, so my image panel is 4x4, my Taken with teal panel is 4.25x4.25, and my More mustard card is 5X5. I really think I'm going to LOVE my copics, and I was so fortunate to be able to go to the class with Marianne. I really had a great time.
If you ever get the chance to go to a Copic certification class, I strongly recommend it!

The card above was made with patterned paper from Making Memories Vintage Hip line. It matches the Kiwi Kiss paper perfectly! I used some pieces from a make and take kit that was given from me together with my SU Kiwi Kiss and Very Vanilla CS and the retired Stem Sihouettes stamp set to make this card. The ribbon was part of the kit. I shadow stamped the stem in Kiwi Kiss.
I have so many more ideas now, and just as little time ;o)

This is a card that I did for Kristina's Color Inspiration #12, and then I got busy and didn't enter it! Now, I think the Sahara Sand band is too wide, but I really like the butterfly. It's hard to tell from the picture, but it is popped up so that it's wings look like they are fluttering. And I stamped underneath in sahara sand.

I used the Spring Solitude hostess set, and her colors. Let me know what you think!
The colors from the inspiration were bashful blue, certainly celery, so saffron, and close to cocoa.
I used the set Big on Spring from the Ocassions mini, and colored the image in with SU markers. The ribbon is certainly celery. The patterned paper is the so saffron dsp.
My friends Tom and Jen had a baby this weekend, so this card is going out to them. I knew that checking Kristina's blog would be a great place for inspiration!
I haven't been posting much lately, because I have moved! But I am looking forward to keeping the blog updated as often as I can.

This is a card using the beautiful set Baroque motifs. It's so romantic, and the possibilities are endless.
I've been busy creating an entry for Convention Display Stamper. I just mailed it off today. If they select me, I believe I would be given supplies to make samples for convention, and that would be so cool!
I'm going to convention this year with my wonderful upline. I can't wait! It's going to be so much fun.
Here's the deets on the card:

This is a very simple thank you card using the level 2 hostess set "Infinite Goodness." I love simple cards sometimes. Layers and ribbons are great, but sometimes simple can be very effective, especially if you are concerned about overpowering your message.
Plus simple cards are really quick ;)
