Whippersnapper stamps- Here Kitty kitty....
Here is a card I made for a friend of mine who is a cat lover. Her goal is to be a crazy cat lady when she's older and she has already found the perfect sweater- covered in cats to wear when she's in her 60's. She's only in her 20's now and you have to admire how she knows her life direction all ready. You go girl- be the crazy cat lady meowing inside of you tee hee!!! I love you R...you know who you are ;)
For this card I used a Whippersnapper stamp and some of my SU paper. It's a simple card and layout and I made it in an hour. I am almost confident I used a challenge blog for this layout but for the life of me I can't remember...I feel so guilty as I like to give credit where credit is due. If anyone recognizes it please let me know. I picked up years ago some cat buttons at Michael's in the bead aisle. The kitty word was the wrong shade of green- mossy not olivey and I used my copics to change it up to match. Gotta love the copics and how they can colour up your embellies for you! I have a very hard time finding Whippersnapper stamps and I only have 3 which is not nearly enough in my addictive opinion!
Has anyone made stamping goals for themselves this year? I did for the first time last year and 'sort of' met them. My goals were to join a design team for stamp companies I enjoy and also to be published. I joined the design team at Scrappingreatdeals, Queen Kat Designs (6 month amazing contract) and then Kraftin' Kimmie stamps. So that goal was met with gold stars!!!! In relation to being published....well I decided it counted that I was featured on a few blogs with my designs and in a companies email to their customers that included one of my designs... Since I didn't clarify what the publication could be I figure it's a go. I adore loopholes tee hee! This year my goal is to eventually join a DT for one of my fave companies as a guest DT(Unity, Whippersnapper, The Greeting Farm, CC Designs, Stampavie and many others) and to be published in an actual paper publication. I have sent one submission so far and didn't make the cut but it helped to have the process under my belt at least once. What are your stamping goals for the year?
Blog candy-I am already at 195 followers and still have just under half a month left before the draw! I am so touched to see how many of you have decided to follow me on my blogging journey. At 200 I am adding the 3 copic ciao markers (colours of your choice) and then I will find something else to add at 225. I am thinking another stamp is in order! I haven't been able to visit your blogs yet but my goal is to visit each and every one of you that has a blog and admire your creations. My stamping creations have grown so much in the past 2 years as a direct result of visiting blogs and learning from artists I admired from all skill levels. I look forward to finding new inspiration and also to hopefully inspire some of you. I love my blogging friends!
stampingly yours, Andrea
