My New Kanban Stamp Set

Hello - I was so excited to get this new Kanban stamp set. I had never heard of this company before but when I saw this set with the dog - I instantly fell in love and knew I had to own it. I had a lot of fun making this card - I loved all the coloring! I used my copic markers to color but again did not keep a list of the colors - (I know I am bad) will try and remember for next time. As the image is so large there is not too much extra on this card. I used some older paper once again and my SU corner punch and 3 small brown brads and that was it to finish off this card. Thanks for stopping by for a visit and have a great weekend! Tomorrow is Friday and I am super excited about that - I LOVE weekends!!!

Bye for now

Happy Birthday

Hello - it has been a while since my last post - spring/summer is a very busy time for me and my family. It is my mother-in-law's birthday today and I made this card for her. I used one of my older Magnolia sets and some scrap paper from my old paper stash. I just purchased the new swirl die on the card which cut beautifully using my cuttlebug. I also used my nestability circles and embossing folder for texture on the inside circle. I used Tim Holtz ink (aged mahagony) around some of the edges. I used copic markers to color the image however I did not keep a list of colors as I was in a hurry when I made this card this morning. The sentiment is a C.C. Design sentiment. I am quite happy with the results of this card - I thought it might be a bit too busy looking with the design paper I used but it actually isn't too bad. Thanks for stopping by to have a look - I will check to see what challenge I can maybe enter this one in - haven't entered a challenge in a very long time - it might be fun to do that again. Have a great day!!
