Good morning!  After I got all my bags unpacked and things put away yesterday, it was time to play.  Having not stamped for over a week, I just wanted to play with some stamps that haven’t seen ink yet.  I also thought it would be nice to add to my stash of card for mom.  I think she’ll enjoy sending this card to one of her friends.


Since this is meant for mom, I also completed the inside.


Granny was stamped and colored with Copic Markers, and then I found an oval Spellbinders Nestabilities that would fit the image.  Once the image was cut/embossed I used the Nestabilities as a template for the faux stitching, drawing the stitching on the inside edge of the Nestabilities.   The background paper is some that I picked up at CHA in a make-and-take and have no idea where it is from.

We’re having a major thunder storm here this morning, the little shitzes are in hiding and I get to spend time in the studio.  I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Good morning! Smiley from Mallory just told me that there are tons of frogs down at the pond, so I’m going to get this post written and then go for a walk. Need to grab the camera first, leash up the pups and we are walking to the pond today. Hopefully I’ll be able to get some pictures. Actually every time I walk them around the boulevard there is something I wish I had my camera for – I need to start putting it in my pocket when I leave the house. Duh – what an idea!

Today’s card is for the Ways to Use it Challenge on Splitcoast. What a challenge to fall into my lap today, Crazy for Copics. The set I used today is called Peace on Earth, and is being released by Our Daily Bread Designs on August 15.


The image was colored with Copic Markers, masked, and then the background was airbrushed. I know this is rather a masculine looking card, but the paper colors just went so well with the image – I couldn’t resist. The edges of the image and all the cardstock were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
