Two posts today, Friends. This card is for two challenges this week....one on Paper Craft Planet & the other for Our Creative Corner. This Magenta stamp is one of my all time favorite heart stamps. I really like how it turned out when I used Copic markers to add pink to it. I also used the Copic markers on the paper flower to add color to it. A bead cap was used for the center of the flower. Check out the challenges at OCC: http://ourcreativecorner6.blogspot.com/

This cupcake is so cute! It's in a clear set by Inkadinkado. I don't know why cupcakes & ice cream sundae stamps have been catching my eye lately, but I finally got a cupcake of my own yesterday - Hooray! The word stamp is a Studio G stamp by Hampton Art. I found it in the $1 bin at Michaels a couple days ago. I love being able to color it in. The sweet add-on is made by stamping the word on a white cardstock scrap. I layered it over a silver cardstock scrap, after punching both with the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge punch. Hope you have a great Saturday! I'm off to the movies with my daughter, some of her friends, & their moms.
I almost forgot to mention that the icing on the cupcake is colored in with three Copic Sketch markers. I couldn't resist any longer and bought R81, R83, & R85. I'll have to do some more experimenting to see if they are that much different than SU! or Tombow markers.

The first card says, Each card is good for 1, one,
responsibility free hour of guiltless stamping. May be redeemed any time.
Exp. Date: NEVER!The last card says, May be reproduced as many times as

You have to look closely to see one of my favorite parts of this card. I used Anita's Art Stamps Outline Stickers. They are very thin gold (they also have silver) stickers in straight lines.
The red background was made by embossing with a Cuttlebug folder then applying Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink directly to the cs. I also used a Cuttlebug folder on the black strip of paper. The fancy brown corner piece was made with a Cuttlebug die. I layered it over a black corner made with a SU! punch.
Stamps - Mostly Animals & Stampendous
Ink - Mementos Tuxedo Black & Brilliance Galaxy Gold
Well, Friends, my last canine card is going to have to wait. As I was cleaning up the craftroom last evening, I came across a prefab box. My mind immediately thought of the beautiful BasicGrey Bittersweet papers. Here's the final product.
I realized when I was done that no stamps were used for this project! I did have a lot of fun deciding what should go where, though. I love the velour brown ribbon that goes around the top & bottom of the box.
The "beauty" button & stick on jewels are by K&Company. The flourishes on top are from a Sissix die, and the hearts are made with Spellbinders Nestabilities.
Hope you like this little gift box! Have a great Sunday evening with your family. Anyone else watching football games? (Oh, maybe you didn't know this, but I like sports as well as stamping. LOL)

These canine cards were made with kids in mind, but who wouldn't smile at such cute puppies?
The borders are sponged glossy cardstock, attached with SU! Dimensionals to give the cards depth.
The little heart is punched & embellished with a glitter pen around the edges. Sorry it doesn't show up in the picture. The white card is also embellished with a glitter pen.
The sunglasses dog is colored with colored pencils.
I've stamped "Happy Valentine's Day" on the backs.
Stamps by Zimprints & Gray Wolf Graphics
All cs by SU! - Regal Rose, Whisper White, Glossy White, Basic Black

Now to find some stamping time. I rec'd wonderful stamping tools from my family for Christmas but haven't had the chance to use anything yet. Stay tuned, though, because it's snowing (3-6 inches possible), it's the weekend (yeah!), and my chores are done!!!
