I Like....

Today is often referred to as Throwback Thursday, so as a salute to that, my card today is not a throwback card, but the subject is definitely from another decade - welcome to Throwback Thursday 80's style.  

This sweet image is Stamping Bella's Uptown Girl Farrah Loves Flashdance available here.  I colored the image with Copic Sketch Markers, added Judikins Diamond Glaze to her bubble, Wink of Stella silver accents on the stereo, and randomly drew lines around the entire image with a Sakura Clear Star pen.  After cutting the image and surrounding mat with a Spellbinder die, the image was then mounted on older Fancy Pants paper.  The musical notes were cut with Memory Box dies, and the sentiment is included with the image.

Have you ever purchased an image, then when you get home you were not sure why?  This image is one of those, but when I finished coloring and putting it all together it has quickly become one of the favorites.   So welcome Casey to my post for One Crazy Stamper.

This gorgeous image is Casey from Saturated Canary.  I colored her with Copics to match the gorgeous paper from Kaisercraft, then paired it all with denim and burlap ribbon, and some older Prima flowers with micro bead centers.  Hand drawn stitches finish off the card front.

Painted Greeting

Time for a break from studying, plus I just finished writing the sixth quiz for the online Medical Terminology class that I am attempting, so what better way to relax then to post a recent card that I made. 
This great image is from Lili of the Valley and is entitled A Lick of Paint.
I have colored it with Copics to match the designer paper, then cut and matted it with a Spellbinder die.  The ribbon and buttons are from my stash, and the Happy Birthday saying is also a die from Spellbinders.

Have a great day!!!

Wow, May is here already!  We are experiencing a really beautiful and early warm spring here is southern Alberta - plants are already poking there buds out of the ground and trees are sprouting new leaves everyday - loving it!!!
It's time again to usher in a new month with the new challenge at One Crazy Stamper, and we are once again asking folks to show us their Anything Goes projects ( just make sure you use a stamped image as digital images are not allowed ).  There is a great prize awaiting the winner of the monthly challenge.  For all the details just click here.

This adorable image is Play Time from Little Darlings Saturated Canary line of stamps.  After stamping the image on Copic Xpress It cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I colored her up with Copics.  The ruffles on her skirt received highlights of shimmer with a Sakura Stardust pen, then I cut the image out with a Spellbinder die.  The card base was created with several sizes of Spellbinders, the edges of all the layers was inked with a Ranger Walnut Stain Distress ink pad, and the sentiment is from my stash.
