Born To Shop

My wonderful little air brush system !!!
Airbrushed with Copics
     This is a belated birthday card for a VERY special lady who also happens to be my daughter … I am so sorry this will be late but it is filled with a WHOLE lot of love ....
I used my new ABS (air brush system) to change these plain little white flowers into matching colors to go with the papers ... LOVE this cute little "gun". I was very hesitant about getting one until a sweet young lady named Kim told me where to shop for one & get a wonderful deal on it ... I can't thank you enough Kim !!! It's soooooooo easy to use & as you can see isn't much bigger than my 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card ...
A wonderful addition to my craft room ....

I used a cute little Lili of The Valley stamp called “Born to  Shop” & thought she was very fitting for this as my daughter loves to shop & there just MIGHT be a little something inside in case she gets the urge to hit the mall  …

These are the Copic markers I used for coloring the image & also for airbrushing the flowers I got from Wild Orchid Crafts, branches & the scalloped octagon mat nestie ... The flowers & Paper Trey Ink ribbon REALLY do match quite well in real life but in the pictures they are sooooo much lighter ...
The cardstock is Stampin Up & the DP (designer paper) is DCWV that I bought at JoAnn's ...

Tilda Sitting with Candy

Janie Printz
Hello my friends ...
This is my litte Tilda sitting with candy ...
I used the new Doohickie dies on this card & I am loving them. The swirls is the coolest die ever & I'm sure I will also get a lot of use out of that terrific leaf "Doohickie" (love the name) ...
I used the beautiful designer paper "Joys Vintage " by Paper Pizazz.



The gorgeous satin ribbon & the sentiment are from Papertrey Ink ... I used a Stampin Up border punch for the top & bottom & the beautiful Ivory roses are all from Wild Orchid Crafts ...



I colored Tilda with my Copics & will post the colors used later.
