I made another birthday card today. I swear, I never have enough birthday cards on hand!
I was excited to ink up another one of my new Whiff of Joy stamps. Charlotte is so cute and looks so thoughtful! She reminds me of my daughter - she loves to lay (or sit) on the floor and doodle while watching tv. I decided to pull out some more retired SU DP (Afternoon Tea). Groovy Guava & Wild Wasabi compliment this paper nicely. I added some Chocolate Chip ink around all of the edges and created more paper flowers using 2 Martha Stewart hydrangea punches. After the flowers were punched, I crumpled them up and inked them as well. I used some Kaiser Craft pearls for the flower centers. The leaf punch is also Martha Stewart. The sentiment is one of Amy R's Birthday Sentiments. Here is a close-up of Charlotte. I used the following Copics on her:
Skin: E0000, 000, 00, 11, R20; Hair: E50, 53, 55, 57; Shirt/Socks: R0000, 00, 01, 02, 05; Pants: B91, 93, 95, 97; Rug: G20, YG63, & 67; Paper: E40, 41, 42, 43; Ink Pot: C1, 3; Shadows: W1, 3 & Colorless Blender 0.
Hope you had a nice day! Mine was a bit crazy - just lots to do before my company comes! ~Tori

Here is a close-up of my hydrangea flower. It was so simple to make, but looks so pretty on the page! :) I punched the layers with the MS hydrangea punch and crumpled them and then flattening them out. I added my button to the center with a little twine. The leaves are another MS punch.
Supplies: Stamps - Willow with Flower Basket - Whiff of Joy, sentiment - SU;
Paper - SU card stocks, Gina K 120 White, Making Memories Chloe's Closet DP; Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics; Accessories - MS punches (leaves & hydrangea), Oval Punches (SU), Oval Nesties, Heidi Swapp distressing tool, Copic ABS, 3-D foam tape, button & twine (PTI), ribbon (SU), sewing machine
That's all! Wish me some luck! ~Tori
I colored Lily with Copics, cut her out and popped her up on the background panel with some 3-D foam tape. I airbrushed the background with some B21 & YG17.
Here is a sneak of some of the other images she released today. Go check them out!
Hope you enjoyed my card. Be sure to stop by the other PCS Digi DT girls' blogs and see what they cooked up this week! Have a great day! ~Tori

Here is a close-up of Lily. I colored her with Copics and added some white gel pen to her dress and cheeks. I sponged around her with some Pink Pirouette ink.

Today, Pink Cat Studio has a new digi release today. Isn't he cute?
Here is a close-up of Billy in his star costume. I added some lime stickles to the star he is holding, but it's a little hard to see.

Here is what the Easel card looks like standing up.
I stamped Tilda and then masked her off to stamp the bench. I then cut all of it out and popped it up on a circle that I airbrushed grass and clouds on.
Here is the inside of the card. I used one of Amy R's Birthday sentiments. I stamped it and then airbrushed the background with BG000.
Here is a sideview - these are so pretty standing up!
Here are the Copics I used.
Hope you have a great rest of the night. Be sure to check back tomorrow. PCS is having a new digi release and you won't want to miss it! ~Tori

I do have a new Magnolia card to share with you tonight. I used Jam Tilda for this birthday card. I made this using the March sketch challenge on the Magnolia-licious Highlights Blog.
I think I am getting addicted to coloring these cuties! I love that they are so intricate and that you can really do some shading. I used some Basic Grey Lemonade along with some Pretty in Pink. I sponged some PIP ink around the edges. The sentiment comes from Amy R's Birthday Sentiments set. This is such a versatile set and I really love it! It has not seen much love lately, b/c it kind of got lost in the shuffle. I recently re-organized my scrap room and found it. It's like Christmas all over! I will try to post those pics soon, just keep forgetting to do it. I layered some of the new prima roses on top of some other primas I have had for quite some time. I used 2 Martha Stewart leaf punches. Lastly, I am so excited to have my sewing machine back from the shop, that I had to add some stitching to my card. Here is a close-up of Jam Tilda. I used Copics to color her and then masked her off to add the log and to airbrush the sky and ground. Here are the Copics I used: Skin - E0000, 000, 00, 11, R20; Dress - BG10, 11, 13, 72, R81, 83, 85; Hair - E50, 53, 55; Log - E59, 99, 33, 30; Sky - BG000, Grass - YG17, 97
Thanks for stopping by tonight! ~Tori

My first card uses the Billy Snowboarder image. This is my tribute to the US Men's Snowboarding Team, especially to Shaun White, since he won another gold! I don't know about you, I really enjoyed watching the Winter Olympics. I decided to step out of the box for this card and try my hand at an Easel card. I can't believe how completely easy they are to make! Here are the directions for making them.
I used some really old Basic Grey Dawson DP along with some Basic Grey (SU) & Bazzill cardstocks. I used a Heidi Swapp distressing tool to distress the edges of all of the papers and then added some Versa Mark chalk ink as well. I created the sentiment on my pc, cut it out with a nestie tag and then airbrushed it with some YR16. The snowflake border is an EK Success border punch. I used a MS snowflake punch and a phillips head screw brad that I colored with C7. The small snowflakes are were left over from the border punch. Here is a close-up of Billy. I masked him off and sponged some So Saffron around him. I used the following Copics: E0000, 000, 00, 08, 11, R20, YR12, 15, 16, B00, 02, 91, 93, 95, 97,
C1, 3, 5, & 7. I created his jacket using a colorless blender. I added some Liquid Glass (CTMH) to his goggles and snowboard.
Here is the inside of the card:
Here is my second card - Lily Snowboarder. I used a Magnolia-licious sketch for this card. I know this is super-bright, but it very cheery! I used some Basic Grey Lime Ricky. I bought this when it first came out, but I think this is the first time I ever used it. I thought it was perfect for this snowboarding princess! The sentiment was created on my pc and airbrushed with some YG25. I did not have any primas that matched this card, so I airbrushed them to match. Some Raspberry Fizz twill matched nicely with this DP. The bling is Doodlebug Designs.
I cut Lily out and popped her up on a background that I created a cloudy scene with my Copic ABS. I used these Copics on her: E0000, 000, 00, 11, 30, 35, 37, R20, RV11, 14, 17, 19, B000, 00, 02, 05, Y02, 11, YG 00, 21, 23, 25 & colorless blender.
Here is the inside of the card. I used a MS border punch to mimic the flowers on her board.Here is a peek of the new stamps that Melissa has in the store:

Hope you have a wonderful day! I am off to play with some of my new stamps that came in the mail this week! I will be adding some new stuff to my Etsy store soon!
