Card no. 8 - Happy Easter - OCC Color Challenge

OK, so today I did 2 cards. Lucky meeee ....
I am entering this one into the OCC Color Challenge. It took me a while to figure out the layout with those colors, but Jennifer Meyer's cute little chickie was a great inspiration for me!
So, thank you Jennifer!

Card no. 6 - Thank you to my dear friend!

Hello there!
Once again, changing the style a little bit :) I was playing with my Photoshop today and added soft edges to my pictures, it looks dreamy ... doesn't it?
I made this card for my sweet friend, who helped me when I needed! She is the sweetest!
I am also entering this card to the Stamps and Smiles Challenge #8, I liked the layout.

And here is the recipe!

* Inkadinkado - Brenda Walton's Garden Flower
* Bazzil Basic
* Imaginisce - Loves Me: Love is in the Air & Weak in the knees
I also punched out the flowers and used the ribbon that I bought at Wal-Mart.

Card no. 5 - Happy 4th Anniversary

It's been 4 years since my wedding, so I made my hubby this little card.
We went on a date and grandma watched our little one, what a night! Yay!
I don't think the theme works with the animate stamp that much but he liked it :)

* Valentine Lily from Pink Cat Studio - that I embossed and colored with my copic markers and MS markers
* Fiskar's Clear Stamp collection called Romance
* MS Sherif Font Clear Stamps

* Graphic 44 - Baby 2 Bride Collection - Love is blue
* Prima Marketing, Inc. - First Blush Collection

Card no. 4 - Happy 3rd Birthday!

Well, my very good friend's little monkey is turning 3! How exciting!
I made him this cute little card, that I also entered into Sketch for you to try - from i{heart}2stamp.

The inside view

I used "just Dreamy 2" paper - My Mind's Eye - SUPER CUTE!, basic bazill paper and "Paper Company's" Jungle Stamps, that I embossed, of course. I also used Inkadinkodo's blending chalk to fill out the empty space on the white paper.

Card no. 3 - Gorgeous WoJ Maid - Masking Technique

Ok, this is the last card for today - I was just too excited :)
I used one of my Whiff of Joy stamps - the gorgeous Maid. It is my husband's uncle's birthday so I wanted to do something spring-ie. I know it's too girly but I think he'll like it :)

The detail

I don't think I mentioned my techniques:
First I pick my papers to use then I pick my stamp(s) and colors - I use watercolor pencils, MS markers, le plume II, copic markers and regular Crayola pencils ...
Then I stamp my picture, emboss it (almost always) and color it in - I know I still have to learn a lot :) and then finish my design. I usually change my design few times as I go along ... just to make it feel right.

I am just soooo excited to get to know you ladies .....

Card no.2 - Hippity Hoppity ... Easter is on its way ...

I just love this stamp. Sophia is soooo cute! I usually have my daughter (4 YO) to stamp with me and this is her favorite too! :) So we had fun Sunday today - my hubby went snowboarding and we spent the afternoon stamping .... what a fun!
