A card using Lockhart Stamps! And Awesome Blog Candy!

I was playing around with my Copic markers last night. I am having trouble with the black ink smearing! I have tried SU! and Staz-on. My MIL told me to try the Pallete noir ink. IF you have any suggestions please leave me a comment! Anyway, I used SU! glossy white cardstock. I find the Copics blend better on the glossy paper. Then I cuttlebugged the Bashful blue cardstock by SU! I used the darker blue by SU! but can't remember the name of the color off hand! The ribbon is by Brenda Walton. I used this loopy brads to tie the ribbon through. I gave this card to my babysitter with a gift card inside. Hope she liked it!


The last few days have been exciting mail days! This fantastic blog candy was won over at Adelina's blog, Well Said Cards! She really gave away a stash! The box was never ending! I am going to have so much fun creating with these wonderful goodies! Thanks so much Adelina!







A couple of days ago I received a package from Finland! I won blog candy over at Tikkelperin Jutskia by Kirsi! She sent this beautiful make-up bag, Finnish candy, and this beautiful ATC card! Thanks so much Kirsi!





Check out both of these talented ladies blogs!

I just love visiting your blog to see your great creations.

I recently took a class on using alcohol makers in Wisconsin while I was on business...the recommendation was to use Adirondack Pitch Black dye ink, or Marvy dye ink. Also, you must heat set the ink before you begin to color it, even though it is a dye ink.

Hope this helps!
