SS-192 You're Amazing

I've been so caught up in making Valentines Day cards, I figured it was time to get into another color other than Red, Pink, White and Black! Today I paired up some non-traditional colors: Blue, Brown, Colonial White, and GreyWool - with a splash of Yellow thrown in for some variety!   

My sketch comes from Sketch Saturday and I rotated the image clockwise once.  Here's their sketch
     and here's what I came up with:

This is another Simply Betty Stamp which I got from Graphicats Stamps from this past weekend Copic and Crop classes.  I thought I was going to have a hard time making up the "elongated diamond" for this sketch but I was able to utilize my CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge and used the "Card" setting for the triangle and nested it quite nicely to create the frame from Ariel as well as the "tickets"! 

All the goods which made up this card:

Stamps: Simply Betty Sunflower Ariel and CTMH C1464 Blue Ribbon
B and T Papers: Authentique 6X6 Journey

All Cardstock is CTMH: Cocoa, Grey Wool, Sky and Colonial White
Ink:  Momentos Tuxedo Black, CTMH Cocoa and CTMH SkyEmbelishments: Flowers, Prima Crystals, CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge, Copics, Liquid Glass and CTMH Licorice Gems.

SC369 - Young Love

Last weekend, Amber and I attended Graphic Cats Designs Copic Club and Crop.  It was great fun. . . and there was a great group of ladies there throughout the weekend!  

I've discovered my limited supply of Copic Markers is definately NOT enough to sustain me. . . the world is a rainbow and for every color there is a copic marker - and I pretty much have to have it!   Yes I am addicted and Cheri over at Graphic Cats Design is somewhat responsible!  LOL 

Anyways. . . my therapy is definately retail and along with many Copic Markers, I also was able to pick up some really. . .really cute stamp sets and put all of the information from my Copic Class to good work.  

Here's the sketch I used for my Young Love card: 
and here's what I was able to make on the weekend (I know I'm a little slow in uploading my stuff - life kinda gets going and you run out of time):

Aren't they just the cutest!  I REALLY LOVE this image set. . . so much so I had to buy several stamps by the same artist! I did mention retail therapy didn't I. . . and Graphic Cats Design was definately able to supply!  Thanks Cheri ;-)

Here's all the det's on this card:

BandT Papers:  Basic Grey 6X6 pad Enchanted and EP Success 6x6 pad
