Blast From The Past

TGIF!  Happy Friday!!!!!

Today's SIS challenge was to use a favorite retired stamp set.  I have so many that I love, but this one dog set is one that I seem to always use!  I love the images in this stamp set - so cute and great for coloring!  I love this little dog and his bird friend - it just makes me smile every time I see them :)

I really like the white Staz On ink.  I used it to make my clouds.  I stamped the image directly onto the card and then colored with my markers.  I embellished the flowers with little pearls and added grass, cutting the cardstock with those great scissors SU! carries.

Please check out the favorite retired sets and cards the SIS ladies created on their blog here.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Simple Birthday Card

Happy Friday!

Today's Sisters In Stamping challenge was to make a birthday card.  I created this simple card quickly with a few stamps, dies, punches, and embellishments!  It usually takes me hours to create a card, but this one didn't :)

I wanted it to look like a ribbon and that it is truly a card celebrating the birthday recipient, making them feel special.  I hope they'll feel that way when they receive it!

Please hop over to the Sisters In Stamping blog to see the birthday cards the other ladies created!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Marker to Stamp Technique

TGIF!  Has this been a long week or what?  I think the heat and humidity are getting to me ;)

This week on the Sisters in Stamping blog, the challenge was to make a card using your favorite technique.  I love to color, but sometimes so images don't lend themselves to coloring after you stamp.  But, some are perfect for coloring first! 

For my card, I colored the image with my SU! markers, then put it to paper.  I love all of the colors you can get onto a stamp image this way.  The possibilities are endless!

Head on over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to check out what the other ladies did - amazing!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
