Here is a card for the birthday girl, Rio.  Rio is Betty's daughter from Simply Betty Stamps.  She is a digi from Betty's site.  More practicing with Copics.  My shading is really off.  Embossed purple cardstock with new Anna Griffin embossing folder after using candle punch along top.  I think the "Birthday Wishes" is from an Inkadinkado set and punched with Stampin Up punches.  Added 2 little dew drops.  Cut apart a rhinestone embellisment and used the middle of it on inside of card.  I hope Rio likes it. 


If you haven't been to Simply Betty's store you need to.  She has so many wonderful digi's as well as rubber stamps.  This Steampunk is my 1st and she was done for a challenge on Betty's facebook fan group page.  My 1st Steampunk, 1st challenge and 1st time coloring with Copics.  I will be practicing daily.  The rosette is Tim Holtz. 

Birthday Butterfly

I have put off buying this punch long enough.  It will go on my next order.  I normally put all my cards in a box or binder.  Don't ask why I don't use them cause I don't know but this one I am gonna send to my sister in Florida for her birthday.  It was last month but everyone knows they never recieve anything on time from me. 


New Stampin Up Swallowtail stamp.  Isn't it wonderful!  Stamped with VersaMark and embossed.  Then with tiny paint brush, lightly painted with bleach, yes bleach.  Lightens up cardstock.  Sentiment is also Stampin Up but really don't remember what set it comes from. 

A few cards from last couple months

Here are a few Christmas cards I made in my monthly Stampin Up class that I attend.  Cathie Lester is such a wonderful lady. 

The snowman is from Stampin Up.  Other 2 I made using some embossing folders.  I have so many and wanted to do something with them.

 Some more Stampin Up.

 I believe these go back to 2011.  I can't believe how behind I am on this blog.

The acorn card is the 1st card I made when joining Cathie Lesters Stampin Up class.
