Age is just a number.....

      Had lunch with a friend yesterday and we stopped by my fave stamp store afterwards Impressive Ideas in Roswell Georgia. They were unpacking a new shipment of pull out pop up stationary and I just had to have some.  Ideas for this card are just exploding in my head right now so it was difficult to sit and decide just exactly what I wanted to do first.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the border and then grabbed a Mo Manning image I had laying in my work area - I didn't want to over think the card so I went with what was within reach.  After coloring this sweet old couple with my Copic markers (you can see just a few of the markers laying next to the card that went into coloring this image).  I used my Silhouette to create a sentiment.  The overall look of this card is pretty clean an simple, at least for me,  You will certainly see more being created in the near future.

Materials:  Pre cut pull out card, Copic markers, Silhouette Cameo, Mo's Digital Pencil image, Designer Paper, Embellishments

Bring on the GLASSES!!

    Needed a card for my shop and a friends birthday - once I started coloring and cutting it only made sense to make two cards.  Once again I have used Celeste from Art Impression and some clip art to embellish around her.  This is a pop up card, the inner layer for the pop up was created on my Silhouette Cameo. Using the Cameo allowed me to put the black border around the inside layer as well as be sure my cuts were straight.  I also chose to type out the sentiment from AI to be able to size it to my liking.

     Celeste was fussy cut by me after I colored her with my Copic markers.  I had originally thought I would make her hot pink, but thought red suited the card more.  Once again I added not only wine glasses but frames for eye glasses.  My girlfriend is always digging for hers when we go to lunch and this will be perfect for her.

       The front is fairly simple allowing the inside to be the surprise.  While my friend loves my Explosion Box cards she is a year shy of a milestone birthday next year so I am waiting to make her one for that birthday.
