Can I Get a Witness

Good evening all!

The witness is to see if I am certifiable. According to my dear friends they need to have an intervention as they have created a monster. I was very happy to have played with my new Copic markers with my friend, Erin last night and a new stamp I purchased at Paper Wings in Tuckerton, NJ. We also embossed, used ribbon and brads and stamped the night away! We looked at the clock and it was almost midnight! Thank goodness all the men were busy .

This morning I woke up really early (after getting to sleep around 12:30 AM) to having dreamt of two card layouts. Well, I drew them out and tried to go back to sleep. It didn't work and I got up and started the cards. All were finished by this evening (after teaching Sunday school, helping parents pack, spending time with family and doing some things here at home). It was a good weekend. Here are the fruits of my labor.... you be the judge if I need an intervention ....

This is a trio of cards that I completed. This is a new stamp I purchased. I colored them with Copic markers, Zig Zag markers and/or colored pencils. I used Stampin Up cardstock and some of the Michael's Card packages. Here are the close-ups....

This is my boricua faerie as I call her. The cupcakes and the saying are all Stampin up products. Embossing is becoming one of my favorite techniques.

Here is my pink and purple faerie. She represents my favorite colors. She is colored strictly with Copic markers. I embossed the card with the Quickutz A2 polka dots folder, the "Love" strip is from a scrapbook page kit from Stampin Up and the brads are theirs as well. This was one of the layouts I dreamt of and had to sketch out.

Here is my Spring faerie. The background is embossed with silver and white images. The faerie was colored with colored pencils. The card is Stampin Up cardstock as is the stamped saying and hearts. The patterned paper is from a paper pack from Michaels or AC Moore. I just cut out the part I liked from the 4x6 piece.

Of all the cards, this is my least favorite, this is a new Sizzlits die. I will have to play with it a bit more. The setup is the same as pink and purple faerie card but I wanted to try this. I was going to emboss but decided not too. Might have to try it.

This was the other layout that I dreamt about. I have to say I like it very much.I cannot find my 1 1/2" circle punch so I used the 1 3/8" Cuttlebug heart die cut. It was surprisingly easy. The stamp is the Stampin Up Ronald McDonald set. The brads in the corner are Stampin Up too.

Next blog post will be cards made by my partner in crime, Erin :)

Have a happy night!
