2 New Cards!

Happy Monday! We had a great weekend. We took the kids to see Aliens in the Attic on Saturday night. It was really cute. Yesterday, my parents came over and we grilled out and swam! There are only 2 weeks until school starts, so we are trying to pack a few more things in before we get busy with school and 3 kids playing soccer - eeek!! I am ready, but on the other hand, I am not!

I had some time this afternoon to throw together a few more cards using some of the images I colored when we were at the beach. This is another image from the Miss Anya Collection from The Greeting Farm. These girls are so pretty!

I used more DP from We R Memory Keepers along with some Pale Plum and Gina K. 80# White CS. The sentiment is from Amy R.'s Beach Sentiments. I stamped the image with Memento ink, colored it with my copics, and then inked the edges with Pale Plum ink. I used a Martha Stewart Border punch along with some Kiwi Kiss Ribbon (SU) and some stitching. Below is a close-up of the flower embellishment I created.

To create this flower embellishment, I used one of each of the flowers from the SU Boho Blossoms punch. I stamped each flower with an image from PTI's Guidelines Two set with Pale Plum ink and then snipped each petal a little more so they would bend and crinkle better. I crumpled each of them, punched a hole in the middle and then added a brad. The leaves are SU's sizzlets die.

Here are the Copics I used:Ok, here is my 2nd card...

I just had to pull out my cute Hula Sophie from Hanna Stamps to use with this MM DP! Can you tell I am a little addicted to this paper? I just love Aqua, Orange and Avocado together!

Sophie was stamped with Memento ink, colored with Copics, masked and airbrushed using my Copic ABS system - I swear, one of the BEST things I ever bought! This sweet sentiment is another one from Amy R's Beach Sentiments! I cannot say enough about her sentiment sets - they just rock! I used some of PTI's Aqua Mist and Ripe Avocado along with more of the MM Great Escape DP and Gina K's 120# White CS. I added a little VersaMark chalk ink in Pumpkin Spice (one of my fav chalk ink colors!) The flower is a QK hibiscus flower die that I have had for a long time! Thought it went perfect with this DP and some leaves punched out of Ripe Avocado using an EK Success punch. A brad and some orange polka dot ribbon finishes it off!

Here are the Copics I used for this card:

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you week is going well!
