Birthday Cupcake

 Two posts in two days. I am on a roll.
This card also uses stubby stamper's stamps.
I stamped the presents twice across the bottom using marvy matchables ink. The cupcake is colored with copics and a white pen made the dots on the paper and the bits of white in the frosting. The flames have stardust stickles on them. The circle and the scallops are from spellbinders nestabilities. The yellow dotted paper is from bobunny. A pretty quick card. It's nice to do something that works up quickly sometimes. :)

One stamp two cards

This Stubby Stamper's stamp spoke to me in two ways - one as a birthday card and one as a Christmas card.
 Here the candles are a birthday card and colored with copics. The red background is done with Stubby Stampers stamp as are the words. The border around the words was done by leaving the paper in the die and tracing around it on the inside. The flames have star dust stickles. And then there are some Queen & Co. sequins around.

Now on to the Christmas card.
Once again the candle is colored with copics. I put a jar around the flame and put a row of dots around the jar and then added some more rows of lighter dots around the first. The flame has stickles star dust on it. The holly around the base of the candle are a holly border die cut from Memory Box. I cut the border into smaller pieces and glued them around the base of the candle. For the berries I used red stickles. The ribbon is from a florist shop in town. They asked if I was going to make a bunch of bows - no it is for cards, of course. lol. 
Have fun thinking of more than one way to use a stamp.

Tilda with Parasol

For some reason I love stamps with umbrellas or parasols. Who knows why. lol Maybe I like rain but this Tilda is carrying a parasol so no rain.

She is colored with copics with a bit of a white pen for accents. The shoes have diamond glaze on them so they are patent leather just like I wore as a little girl. For the ruffles I used frosted lace stickles for a bit of sparkle and texture. The flower in the corner is a piece of twill tape that I gathered with a needle and thread (sewing is my other love) and then three tiny pearls for the center. I edged the plaid paper with a blue versa chalk ink and the yellow paper with yellow versa chalk ink.  I think Tilda is a cutie. You never would guess by how often I use her would you.

Fishers of Men

This stamp seemed to just appear on my desk. I have had it for several years and had never stamped it. I guess it thought it was time to be used.

The stamp is one from the now defunct angel company.It is colored with copic markers. There is a swirly clip in the top corner. I'm not sure where the charm in the bottom corner is from. I had used it on another project that my cats nicely destroyed. :( The borders are washi tape. The red die cut is from memory box. A guy card for my stash. Yeah! Hope you enjoy.
