you bring me great joy.



One labor intensive card:


I managed to use both my Cameo and my Cuttlebug:


Big shout out for Butterfly Reflections Ink, have you checked out her shop?!

I've been trying to be more techie, something that is quite the lifestyle change for me.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm a lazy crafter.  I broke out the Distress Markers and my Aqua Painter.  I'm fascinated with the gorgeous, vibrant colors that the Distress Markers manage to maintain.  

Can you tell what inspired me?



Seriously LOVE this inspiration!  I colored in some of the images and kept some plain.

Do you recognize the stamped images? 

Paper Smooches


The sentiment is Paper Smooches Group Hugs from the December Artful Delight Card Kit stamped with Hero Arts ink, also from the kit!

Hope you're having a great weekend!

  9. WOW Amy!! AMAZING!!! The result, AND your brilliant mind that thought to create this with your PS stamps! Total WOW!! Oh, and you had a little question about the liquid enamel (sp?!) I used on my card the other day - it's a Ranger product - it's kind of like glossy accents, but it's black instead of clear. Comes in a package with white as well. I LOVE both of them. Totally worth checking out :)
