REMINDER FOR CROP STOP LINKY PARTY #19 ~ ANYTHING GOES

Hello and welcome! I am thrilled to be a Guest Designer for the CropStop Blog this month. For this card, I used products that I won in a recent CropStop challenge that were sent to me from the CropStop Store; a gorgeous 5x7 embossing folder with an open slit in the middle at the top (which allows for embossing long continuous strips of paper in addition to the regular embossing) AND some beautiful ribbon that I turned into tiny rosettes with the help of some Glubers. 

Here's my shaker card:

CARD RECIPE:
5x7 Card Base, plus 5x7 piece of card stock, 5x7 sheet of acetate, foam tape & confetti for shaker
Embossing Folder: Couture Creations "Chiaro"
Die Cut with: Memory Box "Stitched Heart Layers"
My Favorite Things Sentiment stamped with: Ranger "Jet Black Archival Ink"
Embellished with: Ribbon that was gathered and wrapped in a circular pattern on Glubers (with added buttons from stash) and I also added some Self Adhesive Pearls around the hearts and in the circles.
(Please note I am not an affiliate & do not benefit in any way from these links. They are posted solely for your convenience.)

I hope you'll hop on over to the CropStop Blog to see all the exciting details of the Linky Party and join in the fun. I've really enjoyed my time with them as a Guest Designer and would like to thank them again for this wonderful opportunity!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

COPIC COLORED WEDDING CARD

Hello and welcome! I recently got to travel back East for a fun, fabulous and fast family reunion at my niece's wedding and I wanted to share the wedding card I made for her using Stampin' Bella's "Brett and Brenda Get Married", the sentiment from Clearly Besotted's "Fairytale Ending" and the gorgeous papers from Wild Rose Studio's "Scattered Confetti" paper pack.


I chose the stamp based on their Save the Date photo and colored the image with Copic Markers, adding highlights to the hair as best I could.


Doesn't it look like this stamp was made just for them? I was SO THRILLED when I found it. Love it when things like that happen.

   Dress Shadows: B0000, N0, N1, N2, N3
   Tuxedo: N6, N8, N10
   Flowers: RV21, RV32, G12
Sentiment: Clearly Besotted "Fairytale Ending"
Decorative Papers: Wild Rose Studio "Scattered Confetti" Paper Pack

LET'S PARTY ~ ANIMAL PARADE

Here's another image I colored for the challenge. It's a wood block stamp from Penny Black but the only identifying mark on it is the number 4137K. I had to do an online search to find it's name, "Let's Party".  I stamped this on Strathmore Bristol paper with Versa Fine "Onyx Black" ink and colored it in with Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a Water Brush.


This will soon be made into a card, but I wanted to post a picture of the coloring for the daily challenge. At the end of the challenge, I will post photos of the cards made with these images so you get a chance to see the finished products.
