A Sketch and a Touch of Spring

Happy Friday All!

Hope you've had a good week! It's been another busy one here. Thanks to all who took part in our Whimsy Stamps Magical Mythical Tour blog hop! Love to read your comments and reactions to our new stamp releases. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

First, today I have my Stamp Something card for our new challenge "Touch of Spring Somethings" sponsored by Whiff of Joy. I've used a WOJ image and some SU! papers for this card.

I used the sketch from Everybody Art Challenge. The image was colored with Copics and highlighted with a white gel pen. I embellished with brads and a jumbo eyelet to fit the metal challenge at Cute Card Thursday and then some flowers and ribbon. I also did some faux stitching with a white gel pen to fit the challenge at Crafty Creations.

Next, I have my card for the new Just Magnolia challenge which is a sketch from our talented designer Jay Jay. It's a really simple sketch to use and will work great with lots of different images. I had a lot of fun with this one, thanks Jay Jay!

I've used BasicGrey Origins papers with yellow, olive, and chocolate card stock. My image was colored with Copics and highlighted with a gel pen. I used the Martha Stewart Lace punch for the edging on the green layer. Used oval Nesties to frame sweet Tilda and added faux stitching accents. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps framed with some metal hardware. The final touches are Prima flowers and ribbon, and hemp twine with a charm.

Thanks for dropping on over today! Hope you have a great Friday and a fabulous weekend! Happy stamping! :)
