Special Ocassions, Special Friends!

Well, there is always someone special out there to give a card too, eh? Recently I made this two cards to celebrate a little 2 year old girl's Birthday and good friends wonderful announcement of a new baby on it's way! I heard that Emily liked my card more than her present! LOL!! of course that is music to my ears!

For this card, I use a digi-image from ATS (All That Scraps) I was a bit hesitant because I had never used this kind of images before, but they are actually quite nice! Since they come in .ping format, you can have them any size you want! From really tiny to really big, without affecting the quality of the graphic at all! I just opened the image on word sized it to the size I wanted, put my good heavy card stock in the Jet-ink printer, print and voila! It was ready! Super-easy! Then it just colouring with my Copics and finishing the card with Alphabet stickers.

Recipe for this card:

Stamps: ATS (All That Scraps) Gingersnaps Celebrate Digi-Image
Paper: Stampin' Up! Rainbow Sherbet Designer Paper, SU Whisper White and Certainly celery.
Ink: SU Gable Green for sponging and Copic Sketch Markers for colouring.
Other: Dew Drops, Teal Ribbon, Alphabet Stickers and Scallop Oval Punch and Small Oval Punch.

For this card, I wanted to try something new!
Some where I found out about "Paper Piecing" which I thought it was quite interesting, so I decides to give it a try! Well, folks, I guess the end result justifies ALL the work that this technique implies! It sure is fun but it is also a lot of work, specially when you are working with such a tiny pieces like her little purse! But, like I said, at the end, I think it was worth the effort! LOL!!

Recipe for this card:

Stamps: TAC (The Angel Company) How swell!
Paper: K& C Brenda Walton Madeline, SU Whisper White and Certainly Celery.
Ink: StazOn Black, Copic Sketch Markers and SU Regal Rose Marker.
Other: Dew Drops, Ribbon, and Scallop Oval Punch and Small Oval Punch.
