Below Zero

It's been so cold here lately the only thing I wanna do is stay in the house. We have had anywhere from -10 to -30 all week. Can you say ready for summer.

I got my new Elzybells today and I made the Celebrate your inner princess card. I used

DCWV glitter cardstock and added rhinestones and used distress ink along the out edges.

It was colored with my Copics.

Next card is done with Papertrey Ink stamps which i just love. I stamped and added stickles

to the middle of each blossom. I also used Lipstick distress ink around the edges.

Drawn by a teenager

This card is made with a stamp you can get at GinaK's which her link is on the side. Her daughter which is not only gorgeous also drawns anime. This is the first stamp she has done so far. I just love it. I believe her daughter is around 14. You can find more on her blog about her daughter which you can get the link from her store i believe. Very talented. I colored it in with gamsol and pencils and added glitter to the wings. The bow was colored with markers and I added a gold sparkly spica pen to that and her bracelet and ring.

New Penny Blacks

Sorry I have been so horrible about posting. Just getting situated again after not stamping
for so long. My husband got me like 2 dozen Penny Black stamps which I made a dozen or
so cards for ebay today but won't post them until this weekend.

These two cards I love how they turned out. First one I used "Thoughts of You" for the saying and made it 3d . I colored the mouse with Gamsol/Pencils. I added stickles to the water. The
glitter cardstock is the new DCWV tablets at Joanns. This one is Nanny's Baby Boy stack.

The last card is also a new Penny Black. I colored this one with my copic markers which I
love and made parts 3d. I added Aged Photo distress ink around the edges and used my
glitter pens on the trim of the bow. I don't remember what the paper is I believe it's Daisy D's.

Tomorrow is the big day for the new release of Elzybells which link is on my links list. I plan
on getting some of those I just love them. So you will be seeing them in the near future. Also
ordered a few stamps from UK called Sugar Nellies. They are cute little kids. Link also on
side bar.

I'm Back

Well I hope everyone had nice Holidays and a great New Year. I am back after a long needed break. I normally make cards all year for Ebay and take a break after Christmas and in the summer when things are slow. I needed it too. But on the good note Hubby bought me a 2 dozen new Penny Black and I have about a dozen of the New one's coming along with another dozen or so new Valentine stamps coming from other various company's. I hope i have time to use them this year.

I made a few cards today using my PapertreyInk stamps which they release on the 15th of every month. See link on the side. I love them. Here are the cards I did with them.
This is one set there is also a sheep which i plan on making this week. The stamps are very versatile and very fun to use. They are acrylic so you need the blocks to mount them on. If you stamp and haven't checked out Papertrey yet be sure to as she has some beautiful stamps. Nichole designs her own stamps. I almost forgot to add the trim you see around some of the hearts used on these stamps are also her stamps which is a different set of all borders. This is the first time I have used it today and I love it.
Going to work in a couple hours I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Answer to Question: Hearts are made from the Marvy Punches - The stamped image around the scallops on the punches are Papertrey Ink stamps.
