The first card up is much prettier in real life. The front is cut away with polka dots stamped on the inside of the card. It's a lovely effect!
The wreath is loosely colored (basically, I didn't even try to stay in the lines) and the effect is soft and pretty. I used three different shades of yellow green Copics.
For this card, my Copic coloring is quite amateurish, but I love the violet and green color scheme.
The envelope couldn't handle Copics, so I stamped a gradient on the side in a straight line, on the theory that curves love lines. The effect works...for me. You might have a different opinion.
This uses a new-to-me stamp set from Papertrey.
I used a fun gold and purple color scheme for this birthday card.
The gold dots were made with a gold pen.
Finally, this wedding shower card was designed to match a store-bought gift bag (on left). It was shockingly hard to find inks that would match. But it turned out pretty nifty, especially since some sequins made it onto the card and the card did NOT end up in the trash as a result. Sequins don't like me, for some reason. But they cooperated here, and I thank them for it.
And that's that. Until next time, which will probably come after I turn in final grades on May 8, I hope you are stamping happily--and more than I am!
