1 stamp 4 ways

Good Morning everyone. It such a beautiful morning, I’m loving these cool mornings. Today I am sharing a challenge a set for my self. One stamp used to make 4 different cards. Hope you enjoy thanks for looking.

The stamp is by Endless Designs (violets) I used Copic markers ( B32,B34,B24,B26,YG05,G07, Y13,Y17). Then I made frames to put in front of the image added the ribbon and bow.

On this card I used Copic markers in (BV000,BV13,BV04,Y13,Y17,YG05,G07) then I added mats behind the image.
After stamping and coloring the image, I cut it down and matted it on black the next layer was punched with a Martha Stewart punch, for the third layer I used a sheet of sticker paper and covered it in pink glitter them mounted it on the card
For this card I made a Side Step card.

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a great Friday. I had a surprise this morning, but before I tell you about it I should give you the back story. Last August 2010 Johns uncle gave me three laying hens. They have been such a joy and the eggs are wonderful. Well March 2011 I went the the farm store and well I ended up with 10 baby chickens and a mallard duck. Well one of the baby hens turned out to be a rooster. But he is so much fun to watch. Now back to the surprise, we went down this morning to feed the kids. And our little bantam, Little Bit had layed our first egg.

Today was my birthday and it was the best. My sweet husband Johnny took me to Hobbly Lobby, Joanns and Michales. then Lunch at Red Lobster. It was just my kind of day.

The card I did today was for a challenge on Splitcoast. The image is from Darcie stamps. I stamped the snowman on white card stock, then I masked it and stamped the tree. They were colored with Copic markers, then I masked the tree and snowman and airbrushed the background. I used flower soft on the tree and fur of the snowman. I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder for the panel, then mounted it on bazzill ice blue cardstock.I punched a snowflake with my MS punch and added glitter.
