O Happy Day

Did you know that Dave Brethauer, owner of Memory Box, started a new stamp company? It is called Poppystamps, and has whimsical animal and people images. I started my collection with "Petunia Petals." Isn't she sweet? For some reason, she just spoke to me.

To make the card, I stamped my image onto some of the new Lemonade Basic Grey paper and colored her with Prismacolor pencils. I then added a saying from Memory Box and layered everything onto more Basic Grey patterned paper and Memory Box cardstock.

Here is a close-up of the coloring:

In other news, the Impression Obsession and Shimmerz design teams are teaming up for a fun week of stamping and shimmer. Each day there will be new samples (some of them are sneak peeks of the HUGE Impression Obsession Fall/Winter release) that will inspire you to incorporate Shimmerz paints into your work. Shirley will post the IO information each day on the IO blog and you can also follow the Shimmerz blog to see what they are creating. I can't wait! I have been playing with Shimmerz a lot lately, and they are wonderful! I will be posting my card on Friday, so be sure to check back then!
