What Cake?

Hello everyone.
     I hope that you have all had a great week.  I have to work tomorrow and Saturday, but I wanted to put up a post and share a little of what I have been up to. 
     As most of you know I am on the Design Team for My Style Stamps and we post daily to our Facebook page.  My day to post my projects or cards is on Friday, so I seem to be neglecting my blog lately.  I have also been making YouTube videos as well and that has lead to even more neglect of my blog.  :O( 
     So, as my blog is my heart and my beginning on this wonderful journey of Copic coloring and crafting in general I really wanted to come and say "Hi" and see what all of you have been up to.  I am hoping to get back into my blog, so please come back if you can and visit. 
     I wanted to share with you all a card I made with the stamp set ' What Cake?' from My Style Stamps.  I just love this little lady and the fact that she is trying to hide the cake that she has just devoured.  lol... I also have a very good friend who's Birthday is coming up next week and I wanted to make her a card.  So I put them both together and this is what I came up with.   I used my enamel dots (yes, I am still hopelessly addicted to them) to bring out the party feel to my card while using softer tones as that is what my friend really loves as far as color schemes go. 
     I had a great time coloring this stamp and I really enjoyed using my Glossy Accents to help bring out the yummy goodness of the frosting that is dripping out of her mouth.  :O) 
     I hope you all enjoy my card and if you get a chance be sure to check us out of Facebook and at Nicole's shop as well.  She always has great products and specials going on.  These stamps are photopolymer and they really stamp up wonderfully.
     Ok guys, have a great weekend and I will talk at you later.
Hugs Lisa G

I'm Banana's over My Style Stamps...

Hi there.

     I hope you all had a wonderful week.  I know for me this week just flew bye.  I have to work tomorrow, but I am hoping to get some crafty time in once I get home and with the Super Bowl behind us now I am sure to have time Sunday to get inky and play with my stamps.
     As you know, Friday is my day to put up a post over on the Facebook page for My Style Stamps.  This week I decided to give it a go at making some of my own 'pocket page inserts'.  I have a good friend that loves to scrapbook that way, but doesn't have the budget to go out and buy a lot of the pre-made cards that go along with that style of scrapbooking.  Well, I thought that gave me a great opportunity to make her a pack of cards that would work into the kinds of pages that she like to scrap.
     Thanks to my ever growing collection of  My Style Stamps stamps  I was able to make her up a few cards just last night. I think it took me all of 45 minutes to make them all and I had so much fun doing it.   I just ordered a BUNCH of stamps from the My Style Stamps store this last weekend as Nicole had all of her stamps in the store on sales, so once I get my haul I am sure that I will be able to make even more cards for her. The best part is that I know she is going to LOVE these cards as they are made to fit in with her children and with her lifestyle.  
     If you haven't made your own cards, or if you know someone that would love cards made for them I really encourage you to give this idea a try.  It wasn't my idea, it was Danielle Pandeline from our Facebook group who came up with the idea on her post Tuesday, but I just had to have a go at it.  :O)  As I mentioned, I was playing with this, but I have so many more ideas in my head now that I can only imagine just how elaborate you could get with this.  
     We would love to see what you come up with, so please come over to our Facebook page and share any and all the things you make.  You don't have to use My Style Stamps to play, you don't have to make page cards,  Nicole just wants to you come over and play with us.  If you happen to use our stamps that is GREAT, but please remember with My Style Stamps we are about the creativity, not just the stamps!  SO have FUN!!!
     Ok guys off to work I go.  Have a wonderful weekend and I will talk at you later.
Hugs LisaG
