You are Blossoming

Good Saturday morning!! I just got this cute new Tilda with Strawberries stamp ( from the Lazy Days of Summer Collection ) but to go with my theme I covered up the strawberries with Flower Soft and made this a "blossoming" card for my 10 yr. old daughter. She's proving to be such a beautiful person on the inside and I just felt like letting her know how proud I am of her. {inside} Thanks for stopping by today ~ I hope you are inspired to Ink Something!

Meet Shy Little Nickie

Nickie is a brand new character that was released recently at Inky Impressions !!  I inked her up and followed this week's Mojo Monday sketch! I dug out my old SU! color, Marvelous Magenta--LOVE that color, especially paired with black and teal! I also dry embossed the magenta with the argyle embossing folder. I had to kind of turn my image layer, but you can still see the sketch here.  I water-colored Nickie and add lots of stardust glitter gellyroll pens for highlights to her scarf, roses, bows, button on shoe and of course her eyeshadow. It really doesn't look like this IRL. I have a light magenta color down first and then the clear glitter pen over it. Here's a close up, although it's not exactly what it looks like IRL either!! LOL. The light is shining right on the glitter here. It's really much more subtle than this.  Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are inspired to " INK SOMETHING !"

Just Because...

I'd like to share this album I made a few weeks ago for Kelly, owner of KL Stampin' N Scrappin'. I've been on her design team since January this year and I've gotta say she is definitely one of the sweetest, most generous people I know. She's not just a boss, she's a treasured friend. I picked up this little chipboard flower album at Micheals one day and it kindof reminded me of her... maybe because she has sunflowers for her logo? LOL. So I thought it would be a neat idea to create an album of all her KLSNS Girls! Then, I thought it would be even MORE special if each of the girls could make up their own page and send to me and I could assemble it and send it off, however, I didn't have enough pages in the album and with the store being so far away, I couldn't just run down and pick up another (if they even had one!) SO, we did the next best thing. The girls each picked a favorite image they had from Kelly's store and colored it and then sent the

Happy Birthday Nicole!

Today's Inky Challenge Wednesday , and since this is Inky Mama's ( Nicole's ) birthday month, we are celebrating HER all month long! The challenge this week is simple... create a birthday themed card! So I used this LiLi's Birthday Cake stamp with my new Nesties (label 6 - love those).  I apologize for the bad picture... it was dark and it doesn't pick up all the glitter gellyroll pens I used on this :( I've also lost my glasses, is this blurry to you too?? LOL -Maybe I can get a better picture later in the sunlight. Anyway, Happy Birthday Nicole!!

I pick You Some Flowers

For today's card, I used this cute Tilda with bike from the Lazy Days of Summer collection. The notebook paper is actually a die-cut ... already made to look like nb paper and had the Doodles already on it. I made up my own poem to go with this Tilda, and it reads: "I picked you some flowers on my way to school, cause you're my favorite teacher...really very cool! If you'd rather have an apple, or some other kind of snack, Tomorrow I will see what I can sneak into my backpack!" I first printed the poem on copy paper, then after I got the right size, I taped the little die-cut right over the spot on the copy paper and ran it back through and it printed perfectly! =0) Get crafty.... go Ink Something!  :)
