WOW Wednesday at Cat's Creations!

It's WOW Wednesday over at Cat's Creations. I have two cards I want to share today.

The first is a card I made for my granddaughter Remi. We haven't seen Remi since two weeks before Christmas. Remi's stepdad is in the Air Force and was sent to California. We are hoping to get to see her soon.
This stamp is designed by Phyllis Harris and sold through Unity. I just love Phyllis Harris stamps! You will be seeing more of these from me! This one is called "Present in my Heart". Where Remi leaves is not far from the beach so this stamp made me think of her. The DP is Bo Bunny. I colored the image with Copic Markers. I apologize but I neglected to write down what ones I used before I put them away. On the inside of the card is the sentiment "Even though we're far a part You're still present in my heart".  It worked perfectly.

Vanessa & Keannon will celebrate their 1st anniversary on Saturday the 13th. I decided to make another card.
This stamp is called "Le Baiser Vole`" by Little Miss Muffet Stamps. I wasn't going to buy this stamp because I didn't think I would use it much but I've already made four cards with it and all of them were anniversary! My daughter's wedding colors were black and purple so I tried to go with that color scheme. I used an embossing folder on the white background. I colored the stamped image with my Copic Markers and then cut of the image. I put some foam tape under the image for dimension. On the parasol I used a white gel pen to give the look of pearls. This time I remembered to show the markers I used. Thanks Sandy T for the idea!
I chose to put the sentiment on the inside which reads "Happy Anniversary ". I'll also hand write a personal note before I give it to them.

That's it for me today. Keeping it short and simple. Leave me a comment for a chance to win a prize from Cat's Creations.

  1. Love both of these cards! Your coloring is getting really nice and detailed. Great idea for the pearls on the parasol. And yep, putting them in a basket and taking a pic of the Copics is a great way to know what you used! Ha, ha.
