I adore tulip stamps and this image from Hero Arts is no exception. It is simple to color in using Copics as I've done here since the shading is already there with the image.
I added some lovely pink ribbon that I recieved from a swap (thanks Secret Sister!). The papers come from Stella and Rose papers by My Mind's Eye. I really like all the pretty colors on the scallop strip along the side.
I don't use vellum too much but decided to pull some out and add a half circle and do some heat embossing.
This card will likley go to my mom ... no concerns about her seeing it, she doesn't have a computer :-)
Well, have a wonderful day!

I colored the image in with my Prismacolor pencil crayons. Added lots of vibrant color and did a bunch of shading. Nice to get back to using them again. They are still my favorite medium for coloring.
Then added some of the BasicGrey papers I bought a while ago. I didn't add a sentiment but I still might.
I have 1 of the other scenes also that I have stamped and hope to get colored to create with soon.
Hope you have a great day!

This first stamped image is from the Robots set by Recollections sold at Michaels. His is so cute! I colored him in with Copics and then covered him with Glossy Accents to make him metallic looking!
This second moo has almost no stamping, only the sentiment (from Mixed Messages, Papertrey Ink). This paper made it easy to create a great moo! I carefully cut a piece of scrap to make sure this orange robot was in just the spot I needed him. Then, I colored him in with Copics and added the Glossy Accents! Super Simple.

I decided to color this gal in using my new Copic markers. That was a ton of fun. I started with her yellow hair and then decided to go with purple! The addition of the ginham paper was required as I love it so much! I added some yummy blue sparkles to her wings!!

Okay, so I thought creating sympathy cards was hard enough but recently I was requested to create a sympathy card for a lady whose dog was dying and another lady whose horse was dying. That, combined with the fact that I don't actually own any dog stamps (we are cat fans in our house) and no horse stamps either. Luckily, I happened to find this horse image that I had stamped one time I was at a friends house (about 3 years ago).
So for the dog card, I happened to have a dog paw punch. I decided to use it to create paw prints across the front. The sentiment is created with my computer and printed onto some linen vellum (Papertrey Ink). Inisde says "Giver of unconditional love. With sympathy for the loss of your pet"
For the horse sympathy card, I used this horse image that had been stamped a few times on vanilla cardstock. I adhered it onto a few layers of designer paper and stitched around the edges with brown thread. I added the sentiment "friend" (from Paper Tray, Papertrey Ink). Inisde says the same as the dog card.
These were so hard to make but I think I was able to get pretty creative and I like the understated simplicity of them. Let's hope I don't have to make any more of these!! So sad!!
Thanks for dropping in.

The woodgrain circles were punched from a piece of carstock that was block colored with different PTI colors and then stamped over top with woodgrain image (Hero Arts). The circles are adhered on top of a strip of white cardstock that was stamped with the woodgrain image and then sponged with a lighter brown.
Love that woodgrain!!! Obviously!!
Thanks for dropping in to my little piece of the www!!

I adore Heather Nichols' mug fromt he Warm Happiness stamp set (Papertrey Ink). And I think it goes so well with the Distressed Dots paper also put out by Papertrey Ink.
With this simple "hi" sentiment, this card could be used for any occasion!!
Thanks for dropping buy today. Hope you get some stamping time today!

The rest of the card is pretty straight forward! See the visual triangle I created with the ribbon. I adhered just a small fold of it under the main image panel.
A bit about this image. It comes from Impression Obsession. I recieved it from Dina (from Mama Dini's Stamperia) who had heard that I was looking for a good daffodil stamp as they are my favorite flower. Wasn't that just the sweetest thing!!
I believe that crafty folks are some of the nicest people in the world :-)
Thanks for dropping by. Have a great day!
