You Inspire Me...

Lord have mercy, this Emma stamp (SSS) is just the coolest! So beautiful!

I heat embossed it in white, then sponged some Distress ink on top. I hadn't originally intended to sprinkle it with paint splatters but I had an inky "oops" when ink from my finger transferred to the card, so I decided to just make it blend in. Hopefully it's not too noticeable. Unless something is really noticeable I just try to keep going and make my "oopsies" work.

The sentiment is from the Altenew Label Love set.

Playing with ME Party Animals

Oh my gosh! This Party Animals set from Mama Elephant is irrestibly cute! I had no idea how cute until I played with a friend's set, promptly fell in love with it, and quickly ordered my own set.

I started by blending some Distress ink on the background and spritzing some water on it. I die cut the cutie patootie bunny and put the cake and present in her hands. I added a little sparkle to the cake frosting and the ribbon on the gift with my Wink of Stella. Can you see it?

I'm a total beginner using Copics but this wasn't too bad. I just need to keep practicing. I wish I could remember which stamp set the sentiment came from (maybe SSS?) but I'm afraid I don't recall.

This card is on its way to one of my really good friends. Make it a great day!
