Wallpaper Roses

I used a Wallpaper border trimmed to fit my mat for the front of my card.
I went over the shadowed areas of the flowers
with my Copic marker to give it a little more depth
The sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly, a rub on.
Love Wallpaper!

Painted Embossing

I embossed the pink mat with the Floral Embossing folder and then painted it with Distress Ink and a water brush.

The sentiment is a rub on, the flower from a swap.  I heavily Glimmer misted the leaves (which are Recollections) and up close and personal they shimmer and shine with a lot of gold fleck.

Birdie #2

This is the same Inky Antics stamp as in the last post but I just wanted you to see the difference using Copic markers and a little glitter on the wings.

Have a Great Day

Another Inky Antics Stamp, Stamped on paper and then Glimmer Misted.
Background and sentiment mats embossed and run through the Cuttlebug

I used a piece of twine for the stem and Glossy Accents on the Cherry.

The inside opens with this wonderful Honeycomb Paper making the Cupcake.
The paper is also sold by Inky Antics, it's part of the Honey Pop Collection.

Wrinkled Thing

Is this little guy just the cutest Elephant you've ever seen?  This stamp is from Inky Antics.

The yellow mat is embossed with the Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder

I colored him with my Copics, be kind I'm a real beginner!

Another card using clip art from ClickArt CDs.  This time it was a black and white image that I painted with my Copics

Sweet Pea

 I ran across an old set of 12 CDs by ClickArt buried in my closet.  They are just loaded with all kinds of clip art.  While browsing I ran across this darling little cherub and decided to see how baby would look on a card.  Well darn now I have a whole new world of inspiration at my fingertips.  I'm sooooooo glad I didn't get rid of these CDs.  The formats on the CDs are a little wonky but nothing that saving here and resaving under a different format didn't cure!
I stamped the heart (it includes the script) onto some card stock.
It's a Fiskars stamp from a set just called 'Baby.
Edge punch is Moroccco Lace by EK Success, this is one of my favorite border punches!

Inside is a rub on from My Sentiments Exactly, shape cut from my Cricut.

It's Only Numbers

Great digital masculine card.  I printed the watch twice and popped one above the other and covered with Glossy Accents to give it more distinctive look.  All supplies from Cottage Arts.
