Birthday Cards for My Babies!

I wanted to share the Birthday Cards that I made for my kids last week. I think they came out adorable! And I know that Phoenix and Rhiannon  love them. Here’s Rhiannon’s.

Rhi's-Card-1

Back in October, I had one a digi challenge over at Haunted Design House, and I won digis of my choice from Delicious Doodles. Boy, what awesome images they have!!! It was tough to choose, but this one was a no brainer. I LOVE dragons, and I thought that this Momma and Baby (or Daddy and baby) was perfect! I knew I was going to use it for Rhiannon.

Rhi's-Card-2

I colored the image in with my watercolor markers and a hint of colored pencils. I wanted the skin to have texture, so I colored it over and over in long lines. I think it looks cool! And she really liked the baby in the egg. She thought it was funny!

Nix's-Card-1

I had gotten this stamp a while ago in a swap box with the S&S girls, and as soon as I saw it, I knew Phoenix would love it! How sweet is this robot? He’s colored with my watercolor markers as well. I wrote “Nix” on the robot’s chest. Know what Phoenix’s favorite part about this card is? The rhinestones!

Nix's-Card-2

I kept both cards pretty simple, which I think is best for kids. They really love them, so that makes me happy. Have an inspiring day!!!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
