Furry Friends

Just a quick post today...
I recently picked up a few new sets from Sweet Stamp Shop.
There is not ONE set I dislike, seriously cute stuff over there!

I made these fox cards yesterday when I working at the scrapbooking store:

 I colored them with my Copics and used Jillibean Soup paper. *A tip I learned: Use black ink and clear embossing powder before coloring!
It's genius because you can't color out of the lines! 
I think it gives the image a more finished look too.
The yellow layer is popped up giving them a little dimension.
Of course I got a little messy inking the edges.

I'mmmm BACK!

Hello bloggie friends! 
I know, I know, you can hardly even believe I am posting right?!
Well, I have a bucket FULL of excuses but I'll spare you the details.
My new job has my left brain working overtime
and I think it started to take over the crafty right brain side of me too.  BOO!

But HERE I AM.  With a special post of some wedding cards.
A friend of mine ordered three cards to give to her parents and her hubby on their special day.
Her colors are red, ivory, black and silver.
She also mentioned a wintery theme of snowflakes.

So this is what I came up with:
I LOVE my new Generations set--
I've wanted doily stamps for a long time and now that I have them I can't believe I waited so long! 
They are so super fun to stamp!!! Get this set, seriously it's my FAV.

This card seems a bit more masculine to me with the stripes but I added some Stickles (Black Diamond) to the heart and sparkly silver ribbon for some bling.

Saved the best (or my FAV for last) I just picked up this Spellbinders set yesterday and couldn't wait to use it- HUGE fan of the detail.  I think it tips this card to the more fancy side of things...
The snowflake paper is Echo Park.
Oh and the sweet sentiment is from another new set called The Right Words.
I'm sure I'll be using this set like crazy!!!

Hopefully it won't be so long until my new post...
But I can't promise anything. :)
