A Brand New Whiff of Joy Image

Here's a brand new Whiff of Joy image from their newly shipped Summer 09 Stamp Kit. This image is called "Willow in the summer Breeze". Isn't she adorable? I had picked up a pad of paper from Joann's called "The Sweet Stack", and one of the patterns went perfectly with Willow's outfit. This card was sent to my friend Victoria for her birthday. (and yes, it was sent late, but I'm getting a lot closer to my friend's birthdays; I was only a week off this time!)

Stamps: Whiff of Joy
Ink: Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: DCWV "The Sweet Stack" patterned paper, SU! Gable Green, Regal Rose, Neenah Classic Crest - Avalanche White
Accessories: Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils, Gamsol, blending stumps, Stickles, SU! Dimensionals, SU! Ribbon, rik-rak rub-on

A card floating across the pond...

I made this card for my friend Helen, who lives in England. It was her birthday in the beginning of the month (ok, so not as late as I normally am!) I thought this image by Penny Black was perfect, since Helen likes cats and this one was floating across the pond to her to wish her a Happy (belated) Birthday!

Stamps: Penny Black, Inkadinkadoo
Ink: Adirondack Jet Black
Paper: SU! Bashful Blue, Kiwi Kiss, Georgia Pacific, patterned paper
Accessories: Copic markers, Sakura Gelly Roll clear sparkle pen, crystal embellishments

Another birthday card...

Ok, so I've been pretty good about getting all of these birthday cards out, right? Better late than never? Alright, I stink at being on time for birthday cards. I don't know why. This was another belated birthday card for my internet buddy, Carol. I'm only a month late on this one... ok, a month and a half... alright almost 2 months. Anyway, the bear and presents are from Darcie's. They have some very cute, country style stamps. They also have some cool little kit projects on their website that you may want to check out. I don't know if you can tell by the photo, but the arm, paw and presents are all "popped up" by a Dimensional.

Stamps: Darcie's, Inkadinkadoo
Ink: Tsukineko Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black, Regal Rose
Paper: Georgia Pacific, SU! Regal Rose, Barely Banana, patterned paper
Accessories: Nesties, Copic markers, SU! scallop edge punch, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, glue pen, miscellaneous ribbon, SU! Dimensionals

Let's get a little crazy!

I made this card for another internet buddy of mine. Shanon is an awesome person with a "bubbly" personality & I really wanted to make a fun card for her. I got to playing with these stamps from Rubbernecker and this was the end result! (I only wish I would have gotten this to her sooner; her birthday was months ago! Sorry Shanon!)

Stamps: Rubbernecker, Inkadinkadoo, Impression Obsession (the lime)
Ink: Tsukineko Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black
Paper: Georgia Pacific, SU! Regal Rose, patterned paper from the Dollar Spot at Target
Accessories: Black Tombow marker, Prismacolor Premier & Copic markers, Sakura Gelly Roll clear sparkle pen, Stickles, ribbon from SU!

I got ya' fahkin' labstahs right here!

I've got a good friend who sometimes works in Boston and she was telling me about how the Boston natives pronounce "lobsters". I was cracking up at her description. To type it out phonetically, she typed something along the lines of "labstah". Somehow a certain expletive was added, and they became the "fahkin' labstahs" (I hope you're not offended!) Anyway, I made this card for her because she cracks me up everyday and I appreciate her humor and her personality. Love ya' Jane!

Stamps: Impression Obsession, SU!
Ink: Adirondack Jet Black, Rose Red
Paper: Curious Metallics Ice Gold, SU! Rose Red, Cool Caribbean
Accessories: Prismacolor colored pencils, Gamsol, blending stumps, Cuttlebug Embossing folder, SU! ribbon, stick pin from Joann's
