~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Now for my cards. Yes, I did two. It's cold and snowy (emphasis on COLD!) so what better to do than stamp!

Jan5 JBE087This first card is October Afternoon & Pink Paislee cardstock from Jacksonbelle Embellishments. The images are from Our Daily Bread designs, Confirmation. I stamped the verse first, then I stamped the dove from the set on a sticky note and cut it out. I placed the "sticky note" dove in place, then used a reverse mask for the oval (a piece of paper with the oval cut out), then I airbrushed over the dove. (for some reason I could not get a true color picture no matter what lighting I used! grrrr! the paper isn't so "blue", it's more teal). 

stamps: confirmation-our daily bread designs
paper: prism smooth white, pink paislee, october afternoon
ink: memento tuxedo black
accessories: spellbinders small labels/petite ovals small

That was my "serious" card.

Here is my other side....

Jan5 JBE087 One of those days The image is from Art Impressions and is colored with Copics. The layer inside the scalloped frame is also colored with a Copic to match the DP and the image. (RV17 Deep Magenta and G12 Sea Green/YG41 Pale Cobalt Green match it perfectly!)
That yummy paper is
Prima Life in Colors from Jacksonbelle Embellishments

and the inside...
