Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps


Well, today at Convention we will start out with General Session!  It is SO energizing to go in, hear the band/disc jockey playing music…people up and dancing and FRANTICALLY swapping cards!  I only brought along about 20 for general swapping, but I always have a good time.  Later this afternoon will be some classes.   I always learn a lot and love hearing how others run their business.

This week’s Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps card is from Sweet Dreams stamp set.  I love the look of bliss on this owl’s face!  Relaxing is always a good thing!

I colored the owl and tree branch with my Copic markers!  I’m having a lot of fun experimenting with these.  I wanted a few more leaves than the stamp actually has, so I stamped the branch again and cut out just the leaves.  I added them to the branch with dimensionals.

The Designer Paper is from Stampin’ Up!’s Good Morning Sunshine.  I paper pieced the hat with the same paper as the background.  The base is Pacific Point cardstock with a layer of Whisper White.  I used a couple buttons on the 5/8 White Satin Ribbon, and tied the center one with linen thread.  Relax was stamped with Basic Black and punched with the Large Oval punch, layered on a Pacific Point Oval Scallop punch and then the Lots of Tags Sizzix die.

Tomorrow is Bloggers’ Challenge…stop by for a color challenge of Soft Suede, Crushed Curry and Old Olive!

Hope you enjoy those Copic Markers. I’ve been diving into those also. My friend, Tammy Hershberger, at Toyrifix in Smithville got me hooked.

Oh, I *love* the colors you used for this Connie — the blue is so vibrant! You did a beautiful job with your coloring, and you’re right — it is always good to relax! 🙂
