Raspberry Tart DSP=YUMMYYYY!!

Okay, so I am OFFICIALLY in LOVE with this paper, and I think I MAY have a new favorite color combo!! I had to go out and run some errands with DH, but while I was gone, all I could think about was getting home and stamping more with this yummy paper and combo. A few weeks ago, I won a blog candy giveaway from my friend, Julie Lacey. She sent me a few of her favorite things, which happen to be MY favorite things, so it was DEFINITELY a win/win!! I got some YUMMY May Arts ribbon, pearls, and a handful of stamped images from Stampin' Bella. I actually own this particular Bella, but shamefully, she has never seen ink. Since Julie's images were laying on my desk, I decided to go ahead and use the ones she sent me!! I started by coloring my LatteBella with my SU markers and then outlined it with a Cool Grey Copic No. 3 marker. I have been throwing around the idea of getting copics, and actually got enough money from friends and family for Christmas to get a BUNCH of them, but I am so fickle about it...do I need them..do I HAVE to have them??? Jury is still out, but let me tell you, I am VERY tempted!! Anywho...I colored her and then layered her with Rose Red CS. Using the SCS sketch from this week, I adhered my panels to a piece of Whisper White that had been run through my Cuttlebug with the Paisley folder. I decided to also use this card for the Holiday Extravaganza Challenge number 4, which was to use one piece of DP, two main colors and a neutral, and at least 3 punches. Since I had to use three punches, I added the sentiment panel..but after investigating the Sketch Challenge gallery, I decided that I wasn't the only one, so no worries. I also saw at the last minute that for the HEC04, we were supposed to use ribbon and no other embellishments...so.....pay no attention to the brads in the corner...hehehe.(thing Wizard of Oz..I know, I am TOTALLY lame)!!



While looking at the Holiday challenges, I saw that challenge number three was to make a "scrap-ling". Now, I have never heard of one before, but I decided that I would TRY to make one...good grief, you don't realize how small 1 1/4ins is until you try to work with it. I decided to use the same colors, ribbon, and stamps as my Lattebella card and the fabulous card I posted earlier. I don't know what these are supposed to be used for, but I thought I would use it as a book mark to send to my friend who just had a birthday today...hmmm, wonder who THAT could be???LOL!! Luv ya Jodi!! I didn't do anything special on this, except for cut out the flowers and glue them on...easy peasy!! It was a GREAT way to get rid of scraps though!!
Well, that is it for me for right now..off to work on the Featured Stamper challenge...I am on a roll baby!!!

  6. Hi Jessie,

    I have just found your blog and you make such beautiful cards. I also like to stamp, but I'm a beginner, so I still have much to learn. I like your blog and I will come back to visit again.

    Happy Holidays from Belgium,
    Wendy

  10. I love your card! about the copics, I have to be real honest since you're my FRIEND, I wish I had not spent the $ on my one box, although it was fun to play with them for the year & a half...it PAINS me to spend more than DOUBLE for the refills to KEEP using them! so I wouldn't recommend them. no one really talks about the cost to KEEP using them, even IF you get them at a good price. the refills I have ONLY found at Ellen Hutson's store & they are $5.79 each!

  12. Love your Bella (and the cute scrapling--I hadn't heard this term either). About the Copics . . . I have seen gorgeous work with them. However, you seem to be producing fabulous illustrations with just your SU markers and the Copic Grays. Maybe get a spa treatment with the money instead!

    Hugs, Mary
