And Graduation

June also brings a need for Grad cards, This one is a card we made at my technique class yesterday. If you are in need of graduation cards, shoot me an email with your order and I will gladly get them made for you. I am entering this one in the Curtain Call


My card today is for the challenge over at CASology. June is the month for weddings, so I have started the wedding cards. if you are in need of one or more, just contact me and place an order.  For this one I used a set that is retiring Your Perfect Day. Colored with Copic markers, added dimension by stamping twice, fussy cutting the pieces, embossing them and popping them up on top of the stamped one.

Lovely Day

I am also sharing this one on the Sweet 'n Sassy Blog today
To get the colorful background,  I inked up the Leafy Background stamp in Versamark ink and stamped off once to get the subtle look, then sponged different colors of Pan Pastels over the background. Next I stamped the image from the set Sunshine & Flowers and colored the stems, leaves and outlined the flowers with Copic markers.
Today is the last day that you can get this beautiful background stamp Leafy Flourish Backgrounds & More, for the low price of $23.40 no coupon needed. 

Here are the two sets I used on my card

Challenge and a Sneak Peek

I finally got my new Stampin Up catalogs in and a couple new sets, so this card is a sneak peek of one of the new sets. I love it.  I colored it with Copic markers, fussy cut out the flower and popped it up, and added some sequins to finish it off.
I am entering this one in the challenge at CAS on Sunday of Cheer Up, Buttercup to make a card to bring a smile to someone.

Today's CAS challenge at Splitcoast Stampers is Wheels and this bicycle2stamp set from The Stamps of Life was perfect to make a card with.  This was a super easy card to make. I stamped the image with Memento ink and colored it with Copic markers. The basket is a die for the coordinating Bicycle Die Set.

There is a new sketch challenge at Wplus9. After I was done with my card I realized I didn't use any Wplus9, so I you will see another using this same sketch so I can enter it in the challenge for a chance to win. Here is the sketch

For my card I used a set from Mama Elephant Water Blooms and the Stitched Tag die is from Lil Inker. I colored the image using Distress markers and then added some water to give it that water color look.

New Products at The Stamps of Life

Today is release day for some new products at The Stamps of Life. The stamp set I used phone4you which is not new, but the Chevron tag is, it's part of the Triplet Chevron Tags die set. To make my card I stamped the small phone in versa mark ink and embossed it with glitter embossing powder. I stamped another large phone and fussy cut the receiver and popped it up on top of the other, to give it dimension. I also double stamped the dial, so I could place the tag with the greeting underneath.
