First as I mentioned from my last post I made several other cards from last weeks sketch challenges. I had some pre-stamped images I used for those cards and when I went rooting through my stash to gather the "stamps used for this card" I realized I had lost some stamps :(. Lost or misplaced? Probably both. Regardless because of this I went mad and reorganized/cleaned up my craft room. I purged like crazy!
Due to the misplaced stamps (which two were my favorite Whipper Snapper Stamps) I got online to order replacements and winded up ordering a few more! Of course what else did I think would happen? LOL. Actually I really don't have a lot of stamps per se in what would be considered a fair amount in the crafters world. So it was just about time to add some to my current collection.
So secondly here is one of cards I made. This was from last weeks My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch 163. I made this card for my sister who is having a little girl! Yup I am gonna be an aunt again. Woo Hoo.
And here is something I have never done before, I decorated the inside of the card using a My Favorite Things dienamic. I really like it, I may be doing more of this :).
A friend of mine called me and needed the yellow bow for her daughters Birthday party. The conversation was something like "how much do you love me, can you make this, I need it like now!" It had been a while since I made a girls head bow, but I impressed myself. Not only did I make the bow she needed but I made an extra one as a birthday present in about 30 minutes.
So lastly my final crafting project that has had me busy aside from my other everyday activities.... this one is a big deal...... at least for me......... this girl got Copic certified!!!! Yup me, I completed the full 8 hours and got my certificate. Can I say what a fun training too. Lori Craig was the instructor and she was just awesome. What a great teacher and someone who truly wants you to learn all things that is Copic. Although I initially wanted to take the class to learn how to color better, I came away with a better understanding about the Copic's numbering system which in the end impacts how I color. I revisited the coloring technique and was also introduced to the new Copic airbrush. Although I don't see myself doing much of it, that thing is super cool! So many possibilities.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you are enjoying your Sunday Funday. I will be back to post what I am working on today. I promise this time :). I'll even give you a little hint. It involves cupcakes.
