S2G Cards

Today I thought I would share with you some cards that I made this week for Shirley's 2 Girls...I used my "Dog in Chair" stamp for the first card and colored him in using various copic markers...I used my scallop nestabilites to frame out the image and paper pierced the edges to give this card a little bit of texture...Teal and brown is my favorite color scheme and I thought it would be perfect for this sketch...I found some doggie embellishments at Joanns a few weeks ago and thought this "loyal friend" sticker would be perfect to add to the design...No card is complete with ribbon LOL so I added some brown ribbon and attatched a little tag that says "never, never pass up...a good place for a nap"...How true is that!! One of the reasons that I like Shirley's 2 Girls stamps so much is because of their clever sentiments included with their stamps...Head on over and check them out!! Today is the release day for some of their new stamps and embellishments and let me just tell you "I want them all!!" LOL... The second card was stamped using a super cute stamp from S2G called "Live Once"...I colored in this lovely lady using copic markers and my atyou spica glitter pens, I just love the glitter!! I decided to go with a yellow themed card...I have a hard time working with yellow and wanted to challenge myself to come up with a card using yellow lol...Of course I had to accent it with black and white polka dots lol...I also added some flowers to the bottom of the card to embellish it up which I found at Joanns in their dollar section (what a deal!)...I was trying to use up some scraps of ribbon, so I added some little loops to the side of the card and added some black foam dots for texture...I love how this card turned out and will definielty try and use yellow in my sketches more often...Thanks for stopping by!!
