Some Starving Artistamps Cards

I was recently added to the design team for Starving Artistamps ( and I wanted to share some of my recent designs I did for them.

The top one is a card featuring Artful Inkables (a line distributed by Starving Artistamps). I love this elephant--what a sweet way to let someone know you are thinking of them.
I framed the elephant using my nestability dies. The sentiment is stamped in black ink and attached with two black brads. The background is a stamp from Artful Inkables as well. I just inked it up in caramel ink and stamped it on river rock cardstock.

I added the black strip and the gingham ribbon behind the main image for fun!

This card features the frog, cattails, leaf and the no swimming sign from the Artful Inkables line. This card is pretty straightforward, I stamped and colored the image with my copic markers and prismacolor pencils. I love coloring with both but find that my prismas work better for me on water and sky details so I use them a lot together. I added the blue stickles to the water to make it shine. Again, I used my nestability dies to create the frames for the image.

The background is caramel cardstock and I stamped the leaf image repeatedly in chocolate ink. The sentiment is attaced with a velvet brad (oh, ahhhh!) Love the texture this and the velvet ribbon add to this card.
I wanted to add another on this post but I cannot figure out how to get the pictures the way I want them...sigh! Still learning.
On a fun note....I am going to have a blog candy contest very soon! Stay tuned!
