You Stole My Heart...

The moment I saw this tree stamp - I screamed "Oh my goodness, I need to color that with Copics!". And color it I did. This is one of my favorite stamps. The possibilities are endless. The color combinations are endless. I could go on and on but lets not. 

Using the Straight from the Heart stamp set, I stamped the image onto watercolor paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then brought out the Copic markers to color the image.

I inked the edges with chalk ink in Creamy Brown.

Forever Thankful for You and {ippity} Challenge Entry

This two week challenge that is being offered by {ippity} is all about Clean and Simple. There is only a few more days to get your entry into the contest - so hurry. Because you could win a $20 gift certificate to use on my blog to buy some {ippity} stamps. 

I used Forever Thankful for You for this challenge. I simply stamped the butterfly image onto a coordinating cardstock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and punch out with a circle punch. Then I stamped the sentiment on the reverse side of the double sided pattern paper. On final touch, I added a little shimmer with spritzing it with a shimmer spray.

Make Your Mark

Introducing Make Your Mark, one of the new {ippity} stamps for August. When I saw this set, I went out on the hunt for the perfect paper to use with it. I came upon this Cosmo Cricket paper called Re-Love in the Upcycle collection. So away I went with creating this encouraging card to brighten someone's day.
