Time to Celebrate!


Hi readers! Happy Tuesday to you! I’m happy to be back with the very talented Cheryl Valadez as a guest designer on our blog! She’s colored a very animated stamp from Art Impressions! Do you know anyone with a Birthday coming up?  This is a really fun stamp to use for a card!

For you avid Copic “colorer’s”, here is a complete list of colors Cheryl used:

skin- E00, E000, R20, E11
hair- E13, Y21, Y00
leopard print top- E31, E50
hat- RV29, RV23, RV21, BG09, BG05, BG02
earrings- Y26, Y21, Y00
cake- RV23, RV21, RV10
ribbon- BG09, BG05, BG02
roses on cake- RV29, RV23, RV21(flower) YG17, YG13 (leaves)
balloons- RV29, RV23, RV21 (left)  BG09, BG05, BG02 (right)
floor- C7, C5, C3, C1, C00

background- BV02, BV01, BV00, BV0000



Every time I need a special card, I check my stash of stamps and Art Impressions always stands out with the perfect image and sentiment.  I particularly love their Ai Girlfriend and Ai People lines and find that I know the folks featured in their designs!  AND sometimes that someone is me ;)  Though I don’t have blond hair, I feel like I could easily be the over zealous gal on my card.  I love to celebrate and that love is only surpassed by my love of cake…LOL!  Ai images can’t help but make people smile, so I have a tendency to use fun, bright colors when using them :)  Their bold size takes up most of the landscape on a standard A2 card (4 14” x 5 1/2”), but that’s ok because they’re so quirky and perfectly detailed that they don’t need too much else to finish them off.


Thanks for reading today, and thanks to Cheryl for being our awesome guest!
