my first ketto...

Who doesn't love the new Ketto stamps over at Stamping Bella? They are all so cute it's so hard to pick just one! I was stamping some out to share with a friend :) and I decided to stamp a few out for myself too. She is on naturals white paper and colored with copic markers. I wasn't sure how the markers were going to work with the naturals paper but I was quite pleased. I hope you like it!

that's what he said...

Another Inky Antics grab bag stamp. I told you I made out like a bandit, right? LOVE that grab bag!

I am not really a sentiment kinda gal, but I do love this one and I have been loving all the big sentiment stamps out there. I was super happy to see this one in the bag and had to use it right away.

The paper piercing was an after thought and I really think it was better before, but too late now.

stamps: inky antics life in years
ink: su tempting turquoise
paper: su basic gray, groovy guava, tempting turquoise, su patterned,

their heads were rolling...

First off, sorry this card is a little fuzzy. I've already sent it away and can't snap another one.

This card just cracks me up. The little sheep head rocks back and forth. There's a pendulum inside that makes it go back and forth. I made it for a shoe box swap I was in... what a mess! I did a lot of the work ahead of time but it still was crazy! Heads were upside down and rocking uncontrollably! I swear that heard had tourettes or something. This swap card might have been a flop but it sure was a lot of fun and we had a lot of laughs!

stamps: su rough texture wheel, gina k basket of kindness
ink: su bashful blue, memento tuxedo black
paper: su patterned paper, bashful blue, whisper white, basic black
accessories: pti twill, pink gems, su pewter buckle, lots of punches

This decked out prima essentials box is going off to Sara. One of my tagging friends. Isn't it fun? The image... well I won't even say it because you know where it's from and why I don't know anything about it or the white paper it was stamped on! Because Sara is such a sweetie, it's loaded with fun :)

I am sure you recognize this super cute american crafts a la mode paper :) it! the green is on the reverse side. I don't know if I told you that before. I know, it just gets better! It matches almost perfectly with PTI ripe avocado.

she's back...

When I was a teen I loved striped pants and I decided she needed some so I pieced some on. I think they are fun. Plus, I had this paper left out from a special project I was working on. It's coming up in the next week or so.
I didn't have the color marker I wanted for her shirt, so I layered some blue and gray till I got the shade I liked. It goes pretty well with the DSP.

great minds...

I so wanted this Inky Antics stamp but I allowed myself a very small budget for the stamp expo in Oaks, PA. So, I settled for the grab bag instead. Guess what was in the grab bag! YES!! I could hardly believe it! Isn't she sophisticated? I love her. You'll see, she will be back tomorrow!

what's the word, bird...

This card was made for Beate's weekend sketch challenge. I really enjoyed the sketch this week and I am happy I got some time to play along. I got to play with some new embossing powders that I recemntly bought. That was so much fun because I don't usually use ep and one is this crazy weird clear/green color changing ep. Even though I didn't use it on this project afterall, it was fun to use and see what it did to the different papers I put it on.
stamps: inkadinkado sentiment, doodle factory pip and
ink: memento tuxedo black, copic markers
paper:su perfect and pale plum, very vanilla. and parisian breeze
accessories: su ribbon originals, michael's bridal flowers and half pearl, sparkle and sprinkle opaline cosmic opaque ep,
