Americana 2

I can now announce to the world that I am on the design team for Stubby Stampers. They have 4000+ timeless images.
Here is the card I created to celebrate.
The images were stamped and then a sheet of scor-tape was put over them. Silk microfine glitter (warm diamond) by Elizabeth was spread over the images.The images were colored with Zig markers. They are pretty cool as they have two colors on each end of the same marker. The dp is from basic grey. The flags are done with washi tape and wrapped around scrapper's floss.
Here is a close-up of the images:

Hope you enjoy! I certainly enjoy and appreciate your comments.

I just got some stamps from Stubby Stampers, so of course I had to play.

As these are rather small stamps I decided to use colored pencils to color then added some stickles to each one. There is a red layer die cut around each image and then the blue. The die cut is from spellbinders. I thought the corners needed to be rounded instead of square like the die cut. I added some bows in the fourth square. You can find the stamp set here. I will be doing some more cards with this stamp set as there are lots of stamps on this sheet.

Here is another stamp I hadn't used before. I won this one and wasn't sure I was crazy about it but it worked up so cute. 
This Princess Tilda is colored with copics and paper pieced. The crown is gold paper with stardust stickles and pink stickles for the jewels on top. The dress also has stickles at the hem of the dress and the sleeves. The candy dots have stickles added to them as well. Got to have lots of glitter. lol The burgundy frame is done with spellbinders.  The corners of the white paper are punched with a mcgill punch, I think. The flower in the corner is from Magnolia. I took a couple of layers off because I though it was a bit big. I threaded the ribbon through the lace. The dp is from a 6 x 6 basic grey paper pad.
Hope you enjoy.

I'm trying to use some of my stamps that I have never used before. Some days I buy quicker than I have time to use them. :)
This is another stubby stampers stamp The image appears to be a winter scene but I made it into a spring or summer as I am tired of winter. I love winter but it is time for it to go.  The image is colored with copics. The moon has clear wink of Stella on it and the stars are done with yellow stickles. I wrote the word blessings by had using a white pen. I added a bit of white pen to the roof as well and then colored it over again with Y00. 
I enjoy reading your comments.

The image is colored with copics and yellow stickles on the stars. The blue has Stella wink glitter pen on it.
A little bit of ribbon and some star brads are the embellishments. 
The yellow dp is from bobunny. The blue is from JoAnn's, I think.
The die cuts are from spellbinders.

Make a Wish

I have been working on some calendars but haven't finished them so haven't posted in a while. On facebook I was challenged to do 5 cards in 5 days so here is the first.

The stamp is from Cat's Meow that is no longer in existence :(. I stamped it on a basic grey tag. The flower has stickles on it. The flag is done with  a die cut - can't remember which company - then I wrote happy birthday on it. I put a bead in the middle of the tag hole The little dodad by the bow is from a broken piece of jewelry. 
Hopefully, I'll see you tomorrow.
