How Sweet!!


I have two cards to share with you this evening. I used the same colors and the new Basicgrey "Two Scoops" dp.

They're both fairly simple, just a few layers. The first is a standard A2 card and the second is 5 1/4" x 5 1/4".
For the first, I just used SU Chocolate Chip, Bazzill, Papertrey White and the Basicgrey. The MFT image is stamped with Ranger Black Soot Distress ink. I love this ink for many reasons. One is because it does not smear when I color with my copics, and two you can emboss with it also. It also stamps clean and rich. LOVE it!! Anyway, the image is colored with copics and has a coating of Sakura Hobby Craft 3D Crystal Lacquer on it. You can find this image at Stamper's Dream. Michelle also has quite the variety of liquid pearls, stickles, and many different stamp companies are represented. Basically, a one stop shop!! yee-ha! Love that. I have to take a minute to tell you why I love the liquid pearls. I love decorating with embellishments, and I do like using pearls at times, but to put one pearl on each scallop.....OH MY, that would take the whole package and then some. So I get the look without sacrificing my pearls. How cool is that? The lace is by Rusty Pickle!! They have the most awesome ribbons. The squares were cut with nestabilities, as were the tabs where the ribbon is tied. I'm not sure who the ribbon is by since it was a gift. And the scallops have white opal liquid pearls on them.


Supplies:
Stamps - MFT Be Mine, from Stamper's Dream
Paper - SU Chocolate Chip, Bazzill, Papertrey, Basicgrey Two Scoops
Ink - Ranger Black Soot Distress Ink, Adirondack Ginger, SU Chocolate Chip
Accessories - copics, Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer, Ranger Liquid Pearls, nestabilities, Rusty Pickle Lace, sponge

Okay, before I share the next card with you, I'd like to share with you the most awesome stamp cleaner by Judikins. I don't know about you, but I don't always clean my stamps right away. And some of these inks are atrocious to clean off. Well, last year when I went to an Heirloom Productions event in Riverside, CA...which I get to go to this weekend...WOOT...Judikins had a booth there with her cleaning product. Oh, my goodness...that stuff works like magic. And I don't know how, but it moisturizes the rubber too. So I bought a huge refill bottle then and there. I was going to wait to buy it there again this year....but guess what?!?!?! Michelle sells it at Stamper's Dream!!! Ye-ha!! LOVE this stuff. It's Rubber Stamp Permanent and Fabric Ink Cleaner!! Check it out!!

Okay, for this second card I mixed it up a bit...Elzybells (love this little girl) You can find her at Amuse. And MFT that you can find at Stamper's Dream.
The circles and oval were cut with nestabilities, and the tag is the two Stampin' Up tag punches. I put liquid pearls around the circle scallops, and pierced the oval one. Pearls by Joy Crafts are around the square. The sentiment and heart are part of the MFT Be Mine set. The edges are all ink distressed with Adirondack Ginger, and the sentiment is stamped with Adirondack Espresso.

Supplies:
Stamps - MFT - Stamper's Dream Elzybells (Amuse)
Paper - Bazzill, Basicgrey Two scoops
Ink - Ranger Black Soot distress ink, Adirondack Ginger, espresso
Accessories - nestabilities, liquid pearls, pearls, SU tag punches, ribbon, dimensional tape by scotch, copics
