I stamped the image with Stazon ink on acetate. On the reverse side of the image, I colored the acetate with the Copic Markers shown below.

The background paper has sublte polka dots and the butterfly is stamped on some polka dot designer paper. I echoed the polka dot theme with the embellishments in the center of my ribbon roses.
Have you been following the Rubber Cafe Blog?! Melissa just posted a fun video showing some great uses for the Scrap Happy Sheer Glue. I'm definately going to have to give some of them a try!

Tip #2: Be sure to use the right papers and inks when using Copic markers. Memento inks are great to use with Copic markers because they do not bleed or feather.

I chose to use the Blue Blossom Kit set from Tracey-Lynn at Fred, She Said Digital Designs.
I printed the designer paper out in the 3x5 inch size and then pieced the background. For the flowers, I printed the pre-colored set out in the 5x7 inch size. I folded each petal and some of the leaves over my craft knife blade for some added dimension.
I made a butterfly out of one of the flowers by omitting a petal, adding some antennae and a few nailheads for the body.
I used the Martha Stewart Cherry Blossom punch to border my card. I used a die from the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Accents set to frame my sentiment. The sentiment is from Printworks. The glitter brads are from SU!
We hope you play along...this is a fun challenge....a great excuse to dust off those punches you have in your drawers! Please post your work HERE...one lucky winner will receive some free images!! Good Luck!

I have had this adhesive fabric ribbon from Making Memories in my stash for a few years now. I love the color combination....and I finally decided it was time to stop hoarding it and use it!
I colored my image with the Copics shown below. I raided my paper scrap bin and came up with this perfectly matching designer paper from KI Memories.
A touch of doodling and a simple white ribbon finishes my card.
Please join us for the challenge....one lucky winner will be reeiving a Gift Certificate to The Rubber Cafe!! It just might be your lucky week!

I went with Faith's new set called Birthday Brew! While most will go with this being an alcoholic brew....I went with the rootbeer sort of brew! We were just telling my son about the frosty glasses they used to bring out at A&W when we were kids! I haven't been there in years, but the memory is a great one! We were at Chili's recently and they serve up their bottled root beer with a frosty glass!
I colored my image with Copic markers and then added some translucent glitter for the frost on my glass! I colored and fussy cut the froth and candle, popping them up on foam tape for dimension.
I used BasicGrey's Archaic collection with chocolate truffle cardstock from Archiver's for my papers. A touch of doodling and a few buttons finished my card. The inside sentiment will be ...just for you!

For this month's One Crazy Stamper challenge the theme is flowers! I chose to use this happy Stampavie image today called Bernadette Admiring the Spring Flowers. I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored her with the Copics in the photo below. The designer papers I used were from the Tickled Pink 6x6 collection from My Mind's Eye. I used Spellbinders Labels Four dies and Fleur De Lis Accents for my card. The sentiment is by Hero Arts, flowers by Prima. We hope you can join us this month for our Flowery challenge! There is a generous gift certificate on the line for one lucky participant! May it be YOU! Good luck!!

I chose the beautiful Iris image. I have to say that I never can wait until mine start to bloom! They are peeking out of the ground....so where there is life, there is hope! I colored my image with Copic Markers and used Spellbinders oval dies to frame it. I used the Copic Airbrush to shade my sky. Springtime is one of the four season sentiments. For the background I stamped the Iris image repeatedly in a coodinating ink for some subtle detail. I used a Spellbinders border die and a few gems to finish my card.
We hope you can play along....show us your spring cards! See the challenge details here....there is a $10 gift certificate on the line for a lucky participant. Then you can go get your Iris image!
