Laughter Is The Best Medicine!

Good Morning!

I just love a good laugh! It just makes you feel wonderful and it's so contagious! I've had many a great laugh over the years with my girlfriends! I just love this stamp set that is part of the Girlfriend series from Art Impressions called "Laughing set" (sku#4385). This stamp set has great value as it comes with the image and 3 different sentiment stamps! 

I added some fun elements to their clothes by making one of the tops polka dotted and one pair of pants into  a cheetah print. Wink of Stella is my new best friend, so of course I used the clear glitter pen on the blue pants and shoes.

Copics used: 
Skin: E00, E11, R20
Lips: RV17

Time For A New Challenge!

Hi Stamping Friends!

It's time for a new Challenge over at Art Impressions! "Have a Heart" is our new Challenge and all you have to do is use a heart on your card or project! If you use an Ai stamp even better! I decided to use the "Val Set" (sku#4214).  I just love this "Cupid" fellow!

When I showed this card to my Hubby his comment was, "is that supposed to be me?, the resemblance is uncanny!" OMG! I couldn't help it, I laughed right out loud! He's right, it does kinda look like him! Too cute that man of mine is!!

Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, R20
Hearts: R24, R27, R29
Top: C1
Belt: R29, R85
Wings: B0000, clear Wink of Stella
Arrows & Bow: C1, C3, silver Wink of Stella
Ground: C0, C1
Shadow around image: C0

I used paper from my new 6X6 Designer pad from Carta Bella called Words of Love. It's such a nice pad of Valentine papers. I kind of went die crazy on this card. I used an oval stitched die, oval die to layer, heart border and string of hearts. And of course Wink of Stella in clear and silver to bling it up! The image and the sentiment are popped up with foam squares to add some dimension to the card. The last piece of the pie was to add a bow from some pink ribbon!

Here's another version of the image using the same papers. I just reversed the color of the hearts and pants and inked all the edges of the paper with Red Brick Distress ink.

So have some fun and make a project to play along with us for our Challenge "Have a Heart". I can't wait to see what you create!

Happy Stamping!
