Fairy Child

Here's a wonderful image from I Brake For Stamps. I love this image of the fairy child and the little frog. I added the saying "I will write peace on your wings and you will fly all over the world."

The background uses a beautiful shell stamp in a light green stamp ink that is very subtle in the scanned image but more viewable in the daylight. I embellished the cards using various Prima flowers and Basic Grey brads.

Have a wonderful Memorial day!!

A pretty face

I love the beautiful face of this woman. This stamp comes from a wonderful set designed by artist ching chou kuik sheet #14 (Plate 43) of the Fantasy Art collection. I wanted to make the face stand out by using a strong black and white background for this card and using very subtle color on the face.
The face is colored using light copic markers and has been mounted using pop dots. The flowers are mounted with thick buttons in the center of them. There are several other stunning faces on this sheet of wonderful stamps.

Need some piece of quiet?

Here's one of the new Penny Black stamps. I love these new images as they have also started selling mounted rubber stamps. These stamp much better than the clear stamps that they have.

Here's an adorable Owl stamp from The Angel Company. I have lots of funny sayings to go with owls, this one comes from one of the new rubber studio G sets.

Puppet Angel from Sweet Pea Stamps

This beautiful stamp comes from ching chou kuik's fantasy art collection plate #33, called Puppet Angel in the Circus. I used a color combination of browns to complete this card with copic markers with a mute color of grey in the background. I love the look of this stamp. I added the saying that comes on plate #28.

I added a small accent off to the left by using a border punch made by EK Success and added some bling to that. This sheet can be colored in so many different ways, you should look at the other samples that the design team has made with this sheet.

Mini Card Projects

Here's some cute mini size cards that I made for a family member. I used mostly Basic Grey tags and assorted ribbons and die cuts for these. They were a quick and cute project that can now be used for someone else to make sweet little notes to give away. Here's the other two that I did in the project:

La La Land.....

Here's another girl in La La Land. Looks like the cat is there too. I know my cat seems to like nothing better than curling up on someone's lap (mostly John's) and taking a cat nap. She most definitely thinks of us as her staff and not her owners too.

Celebration Dress

Along with the shoes I stamped up a few weeks ago, I have also been seeing beautiful dresses. That inspired me to pull out this stamp for a card. I assume some many of the dresses I saw were for proms, but now people are going to be celebrating graduations and attending weddings for their families. This I Brake for Stamps dress stamp comes on a wonderful sheet of stamps .

Stamping Bella Cloud 9

Ahh, to be on Cloud 9. What a place to be. Many people I have talked to lately tell me I sound like I am on this cloud. I guess I am feeling so wonderful that may be true. I was thinking earlier how long it has been since my last period of seizure-freeness, seems like not that long ago, but in reality that would have been back in 2002 or so! wow. Longer than you think! Let's just hope that Cloud 9 is the new home for me!

I can deal with anything if I have the right shoes! Ain't that the truth? well, it is the truth for some! I guess for me, the right shoes only include a couple of pairs.
