Happy Sunday!!

Hi everyone!! Hope you are all having a great weekend and happy mother's day to all you mom's out there!! I've been meaning to post these two cards all week but I got busy and the week just seemed to disappear .

For my first card, I inked up an image from Stamping Bella's line of Ketto's (Tatiana Ketto). I love the Ketto line...I think each image is so different that everyone out there can find one that they can call their favourite (and this one happens to be one of my favourites). So, I inked up the image with Versafine ink in onyx black and embossed it with clear detail powder. I coloured it in with tombows and copics and added some glitter with a gelly roll pen. I used my labels 1 nestabilities on SU! cardstock (whisper white and only orange) and added some Basic Grey Marrakech paper to the only orange cardstock base. I finished off the card with some Prima flowers and a sparkly brad. When I first finished the card, I kept thinking that it was missing something but the more I look at the picture, the more I'm happy with how the card turned out.

My second card is a birthday card that I made for my step-dad's birthday. I inked up Happy Chef from The Greeting Farm, embossed it with sparkle detail powder, and coloured it in with tombows.I used my labels 2 nestabilites on SU! cardstock (whisper white and kraft) and also used some Parisian Breeze Speciality designer series paper from SU! (love it). I added some pop dots to the chef's hat and the cake, which I also added some liquid applique to. The ribbon is from SU! too but I'm not sure which one it is as I got it in a bundle.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my creations...I'm off to a bbq in honour of mother's day and my bf's cousins birthday. Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
