Finally, some play time!

We're finally almost all moved in to our new place and I finally got to take a little time to make some cards!  I think it's been almost two months since I really got to craft.  Sadly, these cards aren't the best, though.  I need to find my groove again and find some inspiration from blogland. Oh well, here they are anyway!

The first card is a card using an LOTV image that I have had for a while now.  As with many of my LOTV stamps, this one has never seen the light of day until now.

Stamp: LOTV; Coloring medium: Copics on MiC Blending Card; Papers: Crate Paper Farmhouse 6x6 Paper Pad;  Tools: Cuttlebug, Spellbinders corner die, Viva Decor Pearl Pen

The second card uses a Whimsy Stamp called Lady Victoria.  I love this KennyK image!  I was inspired to use it by Annika's post here and was trying to go for the same old world feel, but obviously, failed.  I love her card and her coloring with the dark contrasts is stunning!  My sentiment is a freebie rubber sentiment from Whimsy.  Denise throws in freebie rubber stamps in your order every once in a while.  The sentiment was cut using the Notables 1 Die and then layered on top of a die cut using the Elegant Notables 1 die.  These Notables dies layer great together since one is slightly smaller.
Stamps: Whimsy Stamps Lady Victoria, freebie sentiment; Coloring medium: Copic on MiC Blending Card; Paper: BasicGrey Little Black Dress; Accessories: WOC flowers; Tools: Whimsy Stamps Notables 1 Die and Elegant Notables 1 die, Cuttlebug, various Cheery Lynn Dies

Well, that's it for me for now!  Hopefully I'll be back more often as I slowly transition all my crafty goodies into my new space :)
