Hello!  I did a bit of crafting over the weekend using some images from the talented JadeDragonne.  If you haven't seen her work yet you should definitely go check her out on deviantART!  She draws amazing things, and gives them away for free!  I know; crazy, right?  But she does!  I needed a couple of birthday cards so I printed out Tinkerbell and Gothic Lolita to play with.  

This first card features Tinkerbell.  The layout is August's sketch (#61) from Crafting Life's Pieces.  It's no secret that I love these sketches!  I love the lavish layers and decadent details (and apparently I love alliteration as well).  Here I started by coloring Tink with Copics and fussy cutting her.  I added lots of iridescent glitter to her wings too.  I then went to work on my card base.  Papers are Lemon Flower by DCWV layered with Crumb Cake and Basic Black from Stampin' Up.  I used a few dies: Labels Fifteen and Ribbon Banners from Spellbinders and Fishtail Flag Stax Die-namics from My Favorite Things.  The outside sentiment is a rubber stamp I've had for a while from Amuse Artstamp called Magical Day.  For finishing touches, I added lots of flowers, flat back pearls, and a Martha Stewart punched border.

Next up is Gothic Lolita.  She is also colored with Copics, but this time I cut just her head and upper torso using the Classic Squares Nestabilities matted on the Fleur de Lis Squares (both from Spellbinders).  For the sentiment, I used the Ribbon Banners here as well, but this time paired with a stamp from My Favorite Things' set called Twisted Two.  Lolita (and by Lolita, I mean me) doesn't care much for punctuality and so was fashionably late with this birthday card.  The sentiment inside is also MFT (Twisted Threesome).  Once again, I finished up with flowers, bling, and a punched border courtesy of Martha Stewart.  Papers are from The Midnight Spell stack by DCWV.

The sketch is from Bearly Mine Challenges (#100) but I missed the deadline to link it up.  Fashionably late again. 

Thanks for visiting and check back Wednesday for another Simply B Stamps project that is currently in progress!  I hope your week is off to a wonderful start!
