Tag Challenge

Happy Thanksgiving weekend! Did you have a good turkey day? I spent mine gobbling up WAY too much food, but it was good to be with family. I hope yours was great too!

I've got an extended weekend off of work, so I took some time to try my hand at the current A Muse Challenge, to use tags.

I found some mini tags at Staples a while back, so I tried those out on this card. I stamped the To Go Cup on them in Memento ink, colored them in with Copics, and mounted them with 3M mounting tape onto the A Muse patterned paper. I had forgotten how easy tags are to use on a card!

See you soon!

Woodgrain Wreath Card

As I was digging through my Cat's Pajamas stamps for the sketch challenge, I came across another stamp I just love, the wreath. So, I had to make a quickie card with it:

Since I already had the red Stickles out, I colored the ribbon and the dots in with them, and then colored the image with Copics. I just love the woodgrain paper by A Muse as well.

Have a great day!

Cat's Pajamas Challenge

I happened to catch the sketch challenge for the Cat's Pajamas last week and thought I'd play along. Leigh was the hostess, and here's her sketch:

I pulled out one of my first Cat's Pajamas stamps and a scrap of paper from Basic Grey's Lilykate collection and got to work:

I colored the cupcakes with Copics and colored over the cherries with red Stickles. The flame was colored with a Gold Spica as well. The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

Have a great day!

October ATC

Last night I got my October ATCs back from a swap, and I figured it was about time I showed mine.

I had the hardest time with this ATC because although I knew which stamps I wanted to use, I couldn't figure out how to incorporate the sentiment without losing it in the background. I think it came out decently well.

Thanks for looking!
