Cards for St. Jude

Hi!  I am back. πŸ™‚

Kay and I spent a day over the holidays making cards for various card drives.  Here are the ones I made for Winter's Cards for St. Jude Valentines drive.  Simple, simple, simple.  I colored the little Papertrey Ink images with Copics and them cut them out.  Cut some new Hero Arts notecards (yum) in half and here they are…

Supplies: Papertrey Ink stamps, Hero Arts notecards, Copic Markers.

Kay made a bunch of cards, too.  I LOVED what she wrote on the inside… so clever and sure to make the kids of St. Jude smile.  Please forgive the awful photos.  I had the camera set up wrong and didn't check before packing up the cards.  Der.

A few links for you:

  • I get a lot of questions about where to start with Copic Markers.  It is really hard to just start with a few, as they need to work together for blending, etc.  I highly recommend Ellen Hutson's site, as she has some great sets for starting out.  She is really helpful and a good person.
  • Vanessa's cards are amazing HERE.
  • Shari is rockin' the Hero Blog this week HERE.
  • SO cool – great technique HERE.
  • Can't wait to see Tim's new stamps at CHA.  Loving his new Distress Ink colors.  Been playing with them lots lately.
  • So excited about THIS from Studio Calico.

And, yes, the Bachelor.  My oh my.  Slightly annyoing, slightly cheesy, slightly worth a big eye roll.  But, yes, I am watching.  I like Ali. πŸ™‚
