Reveal Number Three

I am so crazy about Whiff of Joy stamps! Today I did more cards with Willow and one with Charlie. I have also gotten hooked on Copic! After seeing so many beautiful stamps colored with Copics I found a few (very few) at Hobby Lobby.

Below is Willow with hot chocolate, my first Copic colored stamp. I like the way she turned out, but was wishing I'd had lighter shades of the colors. Well, the good news is that I found Copics at a much more reasonable price at More Than Ink and ordered two sets. I can't wait to get them!

The next two cards are Willow with a lantern in blue once again, but with different card layouts. I used my Cuttlebug scroll die for the white embellishment.

A close up of the sparkly flowers that I can't remember the name of, but they made a colorful accent on this card.

I also colored Willow in green using watercolor pencils. The card is a tent fold to take advantage of the beautiful country winter scene on the scrapbook CS I used. Folded the dimensions are 6" x 6", extending to the full 12" length of the CS. I did several cards this way in a variety of the scenic CS. I bought the paper last year but I can't remember the maker.

Finally, here is mischievous Charlie ready with a round of snowballs for a poor unsuspecting passerby. As cute I he is, I would be prepared for a pelting! I colored him with the copics, also. The snowflakes are from the Cuttlebug die and the Swiss dot embossing folder added just the right touch of texture. The DP is from the DCWV Glitter Christmas Stack.

I made 10 cards today, but have pieces cut for over 40 more! Many of those will be note cards in sets of 4. When these are put together I'll use some of my other stamps and papers for a whole different batch! Whew!
