Birthday Bella

I used I-can't-see-a-thing-Bella to create a Birthday card. I colored her in using Copic Markers, used Atyou Spica Pens on the balloon and then coated that with Glossy Accents. I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the red background paper. Attached 2 Prima Flowers and a eat Cake embellishment. I'm working my way up to using more red in my cards. Hope you enjoy!
Oh....and I did receive my Sugar Nellies today!!! Yay! I have them all stamped out and ready to color!! Whoot
I have a few cards in the making so hopefully I'll get them posted soon. I'm patiently (not) waiting to receive my new Sugar Nellies by Diane Duda....I can't wait to get them.....my patience is running thin as not only do I need to patiently wait for those, then Sugar Nellie is launching the Gorjuss Girl Set 3 anyday and then throw in Elizabeth Bells new ones that are looming on the horizon for the 4th of July weekend!!!! Whew thats alot of patience!
Hope to get something up soon....

PMS Birthday Lauren

I made this for the stamp of the month over at Stampilicious group (see blinkie at bottom). I used Paper Makeup Stamps Birthday Lauren Fairy! I colored her in using Copic Markers and adding a touch of bling with the Copics Atyou Spica Pens.

I tried to ink the edges and with my dog jumping up....it smudged a bit...so I wasn't totally happy with it, but, maybe I'll come up with a way to make myself like it!

I used a couple of prisma flowers and cut the big one down a bit to fit the smaller card. I also used some green magic mesh and a touch of pink ribbon.

Tommorow will be the launch of a bunch of new stamps at PMS , be sure to stop by and see all the new goodies...blinkies for them on the side and bottom!

Gorjuss Girl little Miss Attitude

I made this card using a Gorjuss Girl Stamp called Little Miss Attitude, this is one of the newest Set 2. I used Paper from DCWV Far East set, aqua blue magic mesh, Heidi Swapp Flower Rub Ons, cute little buttons, a felt flower from Heidi Swapp with a heart shaped brad I added. I colored her with my copic markers and added some glitz with my Atyou Spica Pens, that I love, love , love!!!! If you've not tried these you should, I got rid of all my other glitter pens, these dry quickly and don't smudge!
