Here I Am

This is a set that I can see as being VERY versatile! Even though I'm imagining great things with this set, this one card is all I've had time to make so far.

I colored all the dots in the middle with a Copic marker. Since I really didn't do any shading, you could use any marker you have and like.

To see the full set called Here I Am, click on the set name. It's actually a background stamp big enough for a full card front. That is so fantastic!

Beautiful Lace, Take Four!

I finally used some of the other stamps in the set called Beautiful Lace! I'm so in love with the large doily that I had to practically force myself to use the other stamps, even though I really like them.

This card isn't at all what I expected when I started. It was going to have this smaller doily all over for a background, but it was just too busy. I made lots of other changes as I went, and this is what I ended up with. I like it *okay*, but I feel like it's missing some "umph." Any suggestions?

I have more posts with other stamp sets, so I'll move on from this one for now. I have two lamps and the dress already colored and waiting to be made into card, though. ;-)

Beautiful Lace, Take Three

Clean and simple seems to be the way I went with most of these. AND...can you tell that the large doily is my favorite stamp in the set?!?!? :-)
This one is CASEd from these cards by my friend Jennifer. She's a talented gal!

Beautiful Lace, Take Two

Again, I decided to stick with something clean and simple. It was nice to be able to stamp on the new Bazzill Smoothies paper! I have to admit that I CASEd this from a birthday card I had seen *somewhere* but I can't find it now! If you recognize it, please let me know. :-) The set is once again Beautiful Lace.

Finally--another post!

The Angel Company's new Inspiration Book is truly inspiring. I've been missing my mojo for quite a while, but when my new stamp order arrived, I went to play in my craft room!

This isn't how this card was going to turn out at all, but I liked it so much I quit here! It was supposed to have one of the lamps from the set--I had already colored it with Copics and everything. When I got this far, though, I didn't have the heart to cover the beautiful doily, and I liked the simplicity of it. Hope you do too!

I used Moonlight White Brilliance on TAC's brown cardstock. In this close-up it almost looks sparkly! The stamp set is called Beautiful Lace (click to see full set) and is by one of TAC's new designers, Nina B.
