This card is a result of me playing with the stamp set "Teacher, Teacher" designed by the uber-talented Lisa Lara Originals for A Jillian Vance Design. You can read all about how I made the card over on the AJVD blog today.
Thanks A Latte for visiting my blog!

The image is from Sassy Cheryl's "Callie's Nature Digital Stamp Set". I colored it with Copic markers. Patterned paper is from Kaisercraft and Darcie's. The sentiment is from A Jillian Vance. The big flower button is from my stash. It has been there a long time, and I have a couple others, LOL.
Have a bright sunny Tuesday! Thanks for visiting my blog today!

I am "Sew Thankful" to be a Buckeye. You know that, right?

This card was made as a result of me just playing around. I stamped the butterfly image from Dare2BArtzy's "Tangle Jumpstart" with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored them with Copic markers, and added some shimmer with a clear Wink of Stella pen.
The background is where the playing really started. I colored a layer of the background with a Copic marker, took a Q-tip and flicked Copic Colorless Blender fluid onto the card, randomly. Then I added some dots, big and small blobs of ink with Copic markers. I then took the Q-tip and dabbed on some white acrylic paint.
Framed with black cardstock, finishing touch a button tied with twine.
I had fun with it. That's all that matters, right?

It's Monday, though I'm not quite sure I'm thankful that it's Monday, LOL. Just wanted to let you know that I'm sharing this card today on the A Jillian Vance Design blog.
The card uses the technique of masking with the tulip image from "Spring in Bloom" from AJVD. Colored with Copics. I'm liking the colors. I can't really resist tulips. That's my story.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog today! Have a great week!

A month ago, I went to buy some fake tulips for my kitchen table because I was so fed up with the cold, snowy winter. I needed spring. Fast forward to today...I am so happy to see the natural signs of spring. I do believe it has finally arrived.
This card celebrates spring. It is CAS, and I just love the red, black and white combination. Gets me every time.
You can read all about this card on the A Jillian Vance Design blog today.
Wishing you a very pleasant week. Take time to enjoy the signs of spring.

Just now getting this posted. I made it yesterday to give to my Mom. It's my first pop up box card. I followed the wonderful tutorial by Dina on Splitcoaststampers.
Stamps used include Cowtown, Whimsie Doodles, and dollar stamps from Michaels. Patterned paper from Pebbles and DCWV. I used a MFT die for the grass, some acetate to get the Peep to float and a Viva Ice White Pearl pen for the bunny tail and "pearls" around the sentiment.
My Mom seemed to love it.
The hardest part of the whole project was photographing it, LOL.
Hope you all had a wonderful Easter! Thanks for visiting my blog.
