Fun Friday


TGIF!! The bad weather is behind us and a sunny weekend is ahead!! *Yay* Yesterday I took Josh to the zoo with a friend and her kids and we had a BLAST. The weather was nice and their were so many cute animal babies. The cutest was a little orangutan that came right up to the glass and right in front of me and pressed his lips on the glass and showed me his teeth and tongue. It was so funny but so fascinating to see a orangutan so close. He even made eye contact with me and they were almost human. It was so amazing.

Ok..back to stamping. As I was browsing Eclectic Paperie's the other week I noticed that they carried Rubber Romance stamps. I first saw their chic designs via the SUPER talented Taylor from Taylored Expressions. I always wondered where to buy some and was so happy to see them on EP. This card was made with the Paris street image. I bought it for my sister because she went to Paris a few years ago and fell in love with the city. I chose to color the scene in with my Prismas and added some bronze stickles on the Eiffel Tower. Card stock used is SU Banana, Cranberry, Olive, WW, and DP. Other stamps used is Paper Salon and SU Carte Postale. Materials used are gold brads and old ric rac. Techniques applied are Jen del Muro's faux eyelets and sponging. With all that said I want to also wish everyone a safe and fun weekend. Hugs Ana

I love your row of faux eyelets! I've been waiting for EP to get something in stock before I actaully place my order, but it definately includes some of these gorgeous Rubber Romance stamps. I was so happy to see you using one. You make such gorgeous cards.

I love your coloring and I see that you use prismas but I was wondering if you use gamsol and stubs too? I have been wanting to get some cute stamps like I always see you use but I don't know how to color them, please enable me to color as well as you! What do I need??

Another beautiful card. I absolutely love it! The image is awesome. I like how you added the flowered paper 3/4's the way up, and have that yellow bit of paper showing. The added stickles are great too.

I just love this card. The way you colored it totally makes it great --- Love the way the color is dark on the outside of the buildings and gets lighter --- super job!

Just "met you" as guest designer on Jen's blog and I immediately LOVED your style! Wow! This card on your blog particularly caught my eye because I just got this stamp and was thinking of it only as a background - love it as the focal image here! Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
