Stand Tall



Sweet n' Sassy has released 5 new sets available for pre order and this is one of my favorites, Stand Tall. This giraffe is so cute and super fun to color. 
To make this card I used a top folding white card base, some Perfectly Plaid paper from Lawn Fawn and the new Stand Tall set from Sweet 'n Sassy. 

To color him I used Copic markers, YR12, YR24, W5, R01, and RV63. I added some enamel dots to finish the card

Brightest Stars



I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today sharing this card.
One of my goals for the new year is to send out more handmade kindness.  I have several friends going through tough times and needed some encouragement cards and the Inspiration Word Art set was perfect!  I started with a white top folding card base and a black panel. I embossed the greeting from the Inspiration Word Art 2 with white embossing powder and then diecut three different stars using Star dies  and used the negative space and added the smaller (galaxy) stars with a white gel pen.  Easy card with an encouraging message.





Hello



Happy Sunday! 
We are back to start a new year of challenges at AAA Cards.  Our game is Hello and the sponsor for this challenge is Happy Little Stampers with a $15 gift certificate 


For my card I used a new background stamp from Simon Says Stamp Circle Doodle, I stamped it in clear embossing powder and then colored each circle with Zig watercolor pens. The Hello die is from Winnie and Walter. I added both of them to a black top folding card base.

I am also entering this one in the challenge at Simon Says Monday

Cheers


Cheers for the new year using some stamps from The Ton, Brushed Cheers and Holiday Confetti. 
Simple card to make I stamped the greeting in Versafine ink and used the Misti to get a crisp image and to stamp the confetti around it.
