Go Wild

So.. Saturday, May 22 I posted a sentimental card
on my blog for my daughter Alec who will turn 13
this Sunday. The BAD part of being ahead with
birthday cards is you run the risk of having to make TWO!
Alec and I were at Hobby Lobby and she found this paper
that she just HAS to have and begs me to make a 
card for her out of this fuzzy, zebra, wild paper.

Here is the card closed...

Here is the card open...

 The fuzzy wild paper is from Paper Studio
Punches: Stampin' Up Scallop & Dot edge punch
#13  Thickers fabric pack (Distressed with Eggplant Ink)
Tim Holtz mini background stamp
I used zebra ribbon to secure the gift card
I love tri-shutter cards as they have
a perfect place for a gift card.

Anya Ink Challenge - 3 flowers/2 buttons/1 bow

School is just around the corner and
every year, on the first day of school,
I tuck a card into both Alec and
Sky's backpacks.
My youngest, Skylar, is going into 4th grade
and she just watched Alice In Wonderland, again.
So... I decided to make a 'homework' sheet
for Alice and dated 8.24.10.

Close up of Alice
All colouring was done with
Copic Markers

Close up of the homework
I used a Tim Holtz' Embossing Folder and
distressed it with Brocade Blue Stampin' Up Ink
There is a little note tucked under the homework
for Skylar... wishing her the best year ever :)
The paper is all scraps from various stores
Alice is stamped on 90# watercolor paper
The middle flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts
the other two are Prima flowers.
The buttons are from Stampin' Up.

Thanks for stopping by - check out Anya Ink
The DT has some gorgeous inspiration!

Ever just sit and color?

I think putting marker tip to paper
is soooo relaxing!
So, tonight, I played with one of my
new stamp sets
"Greeting Card Kids"
from Stampin' Up.
All I can say is - I didn't even get to the
card making part :)

Here are the stamps in B&W
There are four stamps in this set.

I am not a demonstrator for Stampin' Up
(I do have tons of their stamps)
But this is the first set I have used my
Copics on and like the way they turned out.
Thanks for stopping by!

Anya Ink Challenge B&W and one color

So I am super behind in getting this card done
and rushed it a bit...
I know WHY they call it a CHALLENGE ...
Black and White and One Color - Oy Vey!
I tried my hand at charcoal pencils and think maybe
I'll stick with Copics (Which means I need more)
Picture quality is NOT the best
Anyway... here is my take
Black White and Pink

Just Love This Digi!
The paper is scrap from something
The ribbon is from Stampin' Up
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts
