Kraftin' Kimmie tryout

Today I have a very special card, as it's for a tryout to be a guest designer at Kraftin' Kimmie stamps.  There are a few reasons I want a guest spot on this team.  One, they're CANADIAN!  Yay for my fellow Canucks!  Two is because the images are just absolutely adorable.  Check these out!

The third reason I'd love to be a guest designer is because these are not digital stamps, they're the real deal.  I've never worked with rubber before when it comes to colouring, and would love the chance to try out these beautiful images and showcase how versatile they are.

Since I love colouring characters, I chose this cute little girl named Poppy (revised) by Saturated Canary to feature as my entry.

I made a second card this week too.  A friend asked if I could make a card for a bookworm, who loves Stephen King.  I used this image from the Faces Saturated Canary pack, and added the Stephen King titles. 

Thanks for looking!  Be sure to check out the Kraftin Kimmie website, and also the facebook page for lots of contests and fantastic inspiration.

Celebration cards

Today I have two cards to share with you.

The first was a little out of my comfort zone.  A friend asked if I could make a Breakfast at Tiffany's themed card for a bridal shower.  This Octopode Factory stamp had me a little nervous with the different angles than I was used to, but I was so pleased with the look of her when she's done.  I added a little bling and stickles for her jewellery, and some more girly details to make the card.  Hope she likes it!

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 21, 11, 04 R20
Hair: E49, 47, 44, 42
Dress: black, C09, 07, 05
Cat: YR 21, 23, 24, 27, T02

The next card is for a Teammate's 60th birthday.  She is an EXCELLENT cake maker.  This is a picture of a cake she made for a baby shower recently.  The entire thing is edible!

So of course with talent like that, she had to have a "cake maker" themed card!  I was so excited to use this Saturated Canary image.  Can't wait to give it to her!
Copics used:
Skin - E000, 00, 21, 11, 04, R20
Hair - E59, 55, 52
Sweater - G29, 19, 07, 14  W05, 01
Icing bag - R59, 39, 55, 24
It's hard to tell but I used some yellow Liquid Pearl to make the beading on the cake and the glob of icing on the table stand out.
