Wow, it's been a while since I posted anything. My apologies. The second half of the year is always busy for me. It's harder to find time for my stamping. I'll try to post as often as I can. Here's a card I made from a sketch. It's been so long, I don't remember which blog I saw the sketch from. My kids love cats, but we can't have one because a couple of us are allergic to cats. The image is from the Pink Cat Studio. I colored it in with my Stampin' Up markers. I added a few skittles and it was done. Here's a close-up of her face. Isn't she pretty!

Isn't she cute? I didn't like the color orange growing up. But, as a paper-crafter, orange has really grown on me. I made this card with my daughter's birthday in mind. She's pretty girly. I went a little crazy with the hair and I don't like how it turned out. I do like the rest of the card. I paper-pieced the hat, gift, and bag. I wasn't sure how to make the bag look 3-D. Then, I had an epiphany. I stamped and colored the image on white cardstock. I cut out just the square portion of the bag (left off the handle). Then, I stamped the bag onto a piece of acetate and cut it out. I glued the paper piece onto the acetate and taped it to my girl image. This makes it look like she's actually holding the handle of the bag.
