Two Cards for You Today :)

Hi everyone and Happy Friday!!! :) I am so glad the weekend is here. I have some work to catch up on and of course some crafting, but other than that, no exciting plans here.

I actually have two cards for ya today, which hasn't happened in forever :)



For my first card, I used this super cute Rubber Romance stamp from Susana's store, Babs, as my main image. I inked the image with Memento black ink and stamped it onto PTI cardstock. I colored the image in with copics and added Glossy Accents to the bubbles. I inked around the images using Versamagic Perfect Plumeria ink. I also used my SU ticket corner punch on the corners and added pearls to each corner. All cardstock is by SU (Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink) and the design paper is from Basic Gray's Eva line. The sentiment is from MFT. For a finishing touch, I added Primas and pearls. What do you think? Just a head's up, there is some exciting stuff coming up at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. A new illustrator will be coming to the store. Be sure to check out the DT's blogs on February 13th for some image peeks as well as a reveal of the new illustrator. A puzzle piece of the new stamp line will be revealed every day, starting tomorrow (Saturday) on Susana's PCP group. Guess who or what the image is for a chance to win a $25 gift card to the store and a hand colored image from the illustrator.



For my second card today, I used this week's Sketch Challenge over on Splitcoast for my layout. The image is a digital stamp from The Greeting Farm. I colored the image with copics and cut it out. I added Glossy Accents to Toto's nose and I added Ruby Red Glitz Stickles to Dorothy's shoes (which seemed entirely appropriate :) ). All casrdstock is from SU (Brocade Blue and Bravo Burgundy) and the DP is from DCWV. I used my Label 1 nesties as well as my swirls embossing folder. The sentiment is from SU's Humor in High Heels set. For a finishing touch, I added red sparkly rhinestones from Michael's.

Are you still here? :) Sorry for the long post today. I'd love to hear what you think of my cards. Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you back here tomorrow :)

Hugs, Christine :)
