The other day, I needed two cards in a hurry to celebrate a couple of good end-of-year report cards:
Fortunately, I'd had a play date ;) at Emily's place recently, and she had let me ink up some of her stamps and bring the images home.
I think some Hello Kitty stamps deserve a home in my stamp collection! They're so cute and easy to colour! I've been spending a lot of time using my Prismacolor pencils lately (more on that in a future post), so it was nice to just bring out the markers and add some quick colour. I punched out four 1" circles as a bit of sky on which to pop up the main image and added a contrail of iridescent silver stars. Further evidence these cards were done quickly: a hand-printed sentiment instead of printing something out on the computer.
Next up, this cutie-pie puppy from Paper Smooches. (Sigh. More stamps to covet.) He, too, got a little quick colour, some Stickles bling on his party hat (otherwise, it just looked a bit too much like a dunce cap in the whole school context...), plus a sentiment from SRM stickers. I recently won some fantastic Hero Arts stamps from Virginia, and she was also generous enough to add some of these great sticker sentiments!
So thank you, Emily and Virginia! You made these two quick cards even quicker! ☺
