Moving Card

I was very excited about these stampin up stamps!! They are so fun to color and stamp!! I made this card this weekend for a dear friend of mine that is moving. I used Stampin Up stamps, Close to my Heart Paper and also some pattern paper from costco!! I also used stickles!! I used my sanding block to distress the edges. I colored with my water pencils and used my water pen to blend!!

I started making this card from a Whiff of Joy sketch got frustrated and just did it my own way!! Talk about not following the rules!!
I used my new Whiff Of Joy Stamp "Fall Willow with Grapes". I colored with water pencils, blended with a water pen. I also added Glitter to all the grapes and also to accent the dress. I love the blues in this card!!

One of my favorite blogs & favorite Stamps are having a "Guest Designer Call". In order to enter you need to make a card or lay out using a Whiff of Joy stamp and then you enter over at Katharina's Blog. Below are my entries for this Challenge.

For this card I used "Fall Willow Catching Leave". I colored her with water pencils. I used Close to My Heart Leaves and my new favorite embelishment a Charm!! I also outlined Willow with Stickles and of course I used a button and a flower! I love flowers!!

For this card I used "Melinda Blowing Kisses" I also colored her with my water pencils and distressed the edges. I used a little bit of glitter for her to stand out a bit and some bling on the sides. I figured that I needed to used a button and a flower as well!!

So I colored this one with my water pencils and used my water pen. The stamp is Eulanda's Haagen-Daz Bear by whipper snapper that is being held hostage by Cheri at this moment!! LOL The saying on the front Is "I scream, you scream we all scream for ice cream" I also used a cherry charm from Cheri's collection of stuff!! because that one side was missing something!! On the inside there is a Thinking of you stamp.

So this is my favorite card of all time! I used Hannah stamps for this one on the cover is says "I am having a party and you are not invited" and on the inside of the card is says "Put your big girl panties on and deal with it!" OMG I love this card!!! The skull stamps are from Stampin up, the Goth stamp was from a good friend of mine and I also used a cuttle bug embossing folder with skulls on it as well! What can I say my daughter loves skulls!!!
I made this card for the Whiff of Joy challenge. I had so much fun making this card. I used the new Fall Stamps by "Whiff of Joy" for this card. Yes I am addicted to the Whiff of Joy Stamps they are so beautiful!! I have colored the images with water pencils and used my water brush as well.
I made this card with my daughter for a friends birthday. She did the coloring and I did everything else! She is one talented girl!! Anyway I used my favorite stamps "Whiff of Joy" Party animal. I used "Hot lips" Glitter Ritz for the for the outside and the inside of the card and a fiskars border punch on the outside. The sentiment stamp on the outside is a close to my heart stamp.
