new cards

I ordered a pack of the new In Color cardstock from Stampin' Up and it finally got here Friday. If you can believe it, I didn't have cardstock that was evenly remotely close to those colors. I really wanted to do the Splitcoast color challenge last week, but I had to wait on my cardstock. I really loved these colors together. I bought this stamp a few weeks ago. When I saw it, I immediately thought about using my Copics with it, which is exactly what I did! I used the colors in the pic below and then went over the letters with my clear Spica glitter pen. It's really hard to see in the photo.

I also used Julie's resizing rectangle Nestabilities tutorial to cut out the image. Worked like a charm! I got to use my new Martha Stewart branch punch that Julee Tilman twisted my arm to buy. I thought it added just a nice little touch around the edges.

Now, I think this might be the first time in my card making history that I've actually completed a challenge the same day it came out. I don't know that I'm too terribly fond of this card, but here it is...today's Splitcoast color challenge. I used these copics

to color the image and then quickie glue penned the area around the leaves and glittered. Very quick and easy! Thanks for stopping by!

You may not be so fond of the Ornament Card but I absolutely love it! I'm all about anything pink, glittery and girly!! KV

Both of these are really super! The coloring on the Give Thanks is excellent and the Ornament is so glittery and sugary looking. Really pretty.
