Gorjuss girl-first one

I got these Gorjuss girl stamps in the mail-eight of them! So I wanted to make a card with one. Even though my coloring is still not quite there (the skin is too dark and I always forget to do that light source thing) I thought she came out pretty cute. I didn't want to keep messing with it too much or else I'm sure I'd ruin it. I used this sketch from Taylored Expressions.

stamps: gorjuss girl from sugar nellie
patterned paper: imaginisce
copic markers
ink: memento
cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder
handmade crocheted flowers
jewels: prima and amuse (not impressed with the amuse jewels)
stickles (on the little skull barrette)
scallop punch

Egg baskets

I found out about 10 minutes before we left for the in-laws' house that the kids were planning to take Grandma and Grandpa some decorated eggs and wanted something cute to put them in. Gee thanks for the last minute notice! So anyway I used my baskets and blooms die and my cricut to make these-I had trouble making the baskets round even though I did it like this blog post said to. Grandma and Grandpa liked them anyway.

Patterned papers
Cricut cartridge: Doodlecharms
Bigz die
Easter grass stolen from the kids' baskets

Two Scoops

The other day I was looking at Jen Muraoka's blog and one of her sidebar buttons caught my eye. It was a link to theTwo Scoops Rice Designs blog and from there I found their store site. I had been looking for a while for cute Japanese themed food stamps because I grew up on that food and thought it would be cute to make cards with it. So I went over to the store site and found the cutest stamps! I got two Christmas ones and this 2 scoops ice cream stamp (there were a ton more that I wanted but I have to wait). They came within just a few days and I just had to use one right away. I used the mojo monday sketch shown here to make this card.

note: I made the links so they'll open up in a new window. I thought I would make links like this for other sites and for links within my own blogs I would not make them open in a new window. If it bugs anyone that the links open in a new window let me know and I will cease and desist.
