How's your long weekend going? I have been having a fun time with the boys and Josh. Today we went to my mom's to cook out burgers & swim in the pool. So fun! Even more fun?? GUITAR HERO! Yeah, it's a sickness. But it's sooo fun. You gotta try it!
I have to declare this post a definite ENABLER ALERT!! Are you ready?
Have you seen the new stamps from Stampavie? I especially love the Lily and Milo stamps from Rachelle Anne Miller. Sooo stinkin cute!! They are high quality photopolymer, clear stamps, and are very large images. So I finally caved and ordered them late Thursday morning at the link above. And guess what??? Not only did I get a shipping notice that SAME DAY at 3:00, but my stamps arrived on Saturday!! Seriously!! How awesome is that?
Of course, I had to ink them right up! I printed off Taylor's Cupcake Challenge from this week (see the link here: Taylored Expressions: Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #17) and had to make not one, but two cards for the challenge.
This one is Lily - My Little Friend, isn't she a DOLL? I stamped her in Brilliance Graphite Black and watercolored her with my reinkers & Niji Waterbrushes. One of my favorite parts of the card are the elements I used for the three embellishments on the side. Here's a close-up:
I layered the smallest Prima flowers first, then adhered one of my new favorite embellishments, Teeny Roses from Stamping Bella. In the center of the flowers I adhered 2mm Swarovski Crystals. How yummy are those??? Love it.
For my next card, I chose Lily - Picking Flowers. She is definitely a little bit more detailed (ok, A LOT more detailed), so I colored her with Copic Markers, then added some Stickles for a little bling.
Yep, there's my embellishment trio again. I couldn't help it!! I also love that both of these images matched up fabulously with two of my favorite A Muse sentiments.
Anywho, I was excited to share these with you...I hope you like them! Have a wonderful Memorial Day!
