Two Paper Divas

This month sure has flown by.  I can't believe this is the last Friday of the month.  Of course Friday beings a new post from Two Paper Divas.  I saved my favorite stamp set for today.  The stamp I used is called "Who's There" and I just love it.  I liked it so much that I made 2 different cards with the image. 

I started with this card and I really like the way it turned out.  I showed it to my husband and he told me there is no blue on an owl.  But I thought it looked "pretty" so that is why I used blue.  I used my zig markers and always fun to see the vibrant colors that show up with those markers. 
 This was my second card that was a little bit more realistic I guess.  Still fun to color.  I even used one of the bottles from the chemistry stamp set.

I hope you have enjoyed my cards this month as much as I have enjoyed making them.

Two Paper Divas

Another Friday and another post for Two Paper Divas.  Today I made a card using one of the new Two Paper Divas August Stamps called Spell on Me. This week I decided to used water color paper for my base and it is amazing how much better it looks.  I also masked the center flask so the other ones look like they are behind the one in the center.
I hope you enjoyed this card. I really liked the way it turned out.  Check back next week because my theme will be fall and I hope that means cooler weather.

Two Paper Divas

I am so happy it is Friday.  It has been a long week.  Today I am posting a CAS card I made using one of the new Two Paper Divas August Stamps called Spell on Me.  It is endless what you could do with this stamp set.  Next week I will have another card I made with this same set.  I colored these images with my zig water color markers on regular cardstock.  I was just curious how they would color on regular paper.  Well I see why they tell you to use water color paper. 

I stamped one of the borders from "All About Borders" to go below the test tubes. Be sure and go to Two Paper Divas Blog to see what the rest of the team has come up with.  Don't forget to check back next week for another creations using the same stamp set.

Unidentifed Image Swap #27

It is time again for a fun image from Lela this month.  The image is called "Purrfect Day" by Penny Black.  The image was stamped in StazOn Jet Black on Georgia Pacific 65lb cardstock.

Since I have 2 yellow kitties of my own I had to color this adorable kitty the same as my ornery 2 cats.  I loved this image.  Be sure and check out the blogs below and see what my friends did with the same image.

Two Paper Divas August Release

Not sure where the summer has gone but July is over and now it is time for the August Release from Two Paper Divas.  Another great release from them.  I used this fun stamp set called "Root Beer Float" to make these cards.  The first one I started with a sheet of tan cardstock as a background and used a bubble embossing powder.  I went over it with some white ink to make the bubbles stand out.  I colored my root beer image with my zig water color markers and cut the image out.  For the foam in the class I used Nuvo Glitter drops which you can't see very well in the picture but it gave the image a nice sparkle.
 I thought my first card was a bit drab so I did another one with some color.  Simple but sure makes the image pop.  The sentiment is from another of their August releases.
Be sure and check back next week for some more fun cards for August.
