Pretty in Pink



This week's Card Concept blog challenge is "Naturally Pink".  Right away I knew I wanted to use the Stompy Elephant digi stamp from JessicaLynnOriginal.com.  How cute is she?  

Stompy is colored with Copic markers.  I used ribbon and pattern paper I had on hand.  The sentiment is from an earlier JessicaLynnOriginal sentiment stamp set.

Coffee Lovers Spring Blog Hop

I'm excited to be able to be a part of the Coffee Lovers Spring Blog Hop!  Thank you to JessicaLynnOriginal.com for the free (for a limited time) digi Brentwood stamp!


So many things to love about this Brentwood!  His stubble, for one!  And the fact his one eye isn't even open yet - a great representation of the morning before coffee!  



The background of this card is paper-pieced using different pattern paper and Brentwood is colored with Copic markers.

#CatsRule


JessicaLynnOriginal has cats!  This brand new set has 16 stamps in it, including 4 different cats.  (Don't worry if you're a dog lover - there's plenty of stamps for you, too!)

Today we are celebrating the launch of the Love of a Cat collection.  The card above was made for the Card Concept Blog challenge #50.  I wanted to use a lot of green and found that back paper from a Halloween matstack.  The cat is colored with Copics.


This was the first card I made using the set.  I love that it comes with words to put in the thought bubble.  Of course, "If I fits, I sits..." is one!  I chose the "I'm gonna go nap" because my kitties love to nap all day long.  This is also colored with Copic markers.

This last card I made with the The Craft Rocket Challenges blog challenge in mind!  This week's challenge is Feathers and/or Fur and this card has both!


I finally had a reason to use the peacock paper that I had from a paper stack I bought years ago! This Egyptian-inspired cat is colored with pencils.  I used a glitter pen on her earring and the beads on her collar.  She enjoys catching rodents and watching her servants (I mean owners) fawn all over her, because, well, #Catsrule.  :)

Check out the linky hop on JessicaLynnOriginal's blog to see how each of the Design Team used this set to create some stunning projects.  

Can't wait to see what you make!
