Well, its February and amazing enough we are not snowed in! Glad DH was home to shovel and run the snowblower though! My we have a lot of the white stuff! I managed to finish up some cards and thought I would post them. Hope you enjoy! I am dying to color as I am watching videos like a crazy person. I have a couple of stamps that are just adorable on their own to practice on. Might not make cards when I am done - hope they are good enough to just frame! Is that wishful thinking or what?
The first card is a birthday for a 5 yr. old. As you might have guessed, we have one whole bunch of boys!! I fell in love with this image when I first saw it. Sorry for the blurry on the package. Colors I used on this cowboy are: E00, E11, E31, E33, E35, E37, E40, E43; YR23, 20,; B93; W2, C0.
Another Edwin the cook card - this one is also Birthday. The bench and the cake are from Gina K. She has some of the cutest stamps. They seem to go with lots of things I already have. Copics I used on this one are: E00, E11, E43, E47, E41; W2, W3; YG23; B00, B12; R11, R14, R17, R20.
And last but I hope not least is the cutest jukebox also from Gina K, also a birthday card. Here are the copics: R27, BG13, BG15, BG10; Y11, Y15, Y17. I know the colors don't look quite like they go together - they actually are the same colors as the papers. Sometimes I can't get things to photograph just right.
I used glossy accents on parts of this to give it that neon look. To get the blue outline, I traced the outermost outline of the die and cut it out by hand. The music behind the jukebox is another stamp. Masked the jukebox and stamped the music in. Of course everything is loaded with stickles! I honestly can't make a card without using them. I should own stock in the company by now!! Don't I wish?!
I know this is a long post - might be a bit until I do another. Stay tuned and let me know what you think! Hugs to all of you! If you are under mountains of snow (as I am) or ice (hope not), stay safe and warm. Barb F
