Nancy with Sunflowers, C.C. Designs Rubber Stamps



Hiya crafters!  Sometimes less is more and I believe this to be the case with this stamp.  It's just too cute so I wanted to keep the card simple.  This is the new Roberto's Rascals Nancy with Sunflowers, from the September release.



I think she is darling as a redhead.  I colored the stamp with my Copics.  Here are the combos I used: 
skin: E04 E11 E21 E00 E000 R20 R11
hair: E18 E09 E08 YR18 YR14
flowers: YR24 YR21 Y11
E79 E77 E74 E71 E70
YG97 YG95 YG93 YG91
critter: E44 E43 E42 E41 
C3 C1 C00
clothing: YG97 YG95 YG93 YG91 
B97 B95 B93 B91 E41 E40


The acorns are from the new Make a Card #9 Autumn die.  I can't get enough of those little acorns!  The sunflowers are a C.C. Cutters die but it has been retired.




Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.  I hope you feel inspired to make a little crafty time for yourself!

Marshmallows and Coffee, 7 Kids College Fund challenge #135

I have come to one conclusion about these CAS cards.  There is nothing simple about making them!  When I am pressed for time I always think CAS is a good way to go.  When will I learn?! They take me at least twice as long as the fussy cards I normally do! I'm convinced there is a secret magical art to making these cards and I haven't been let in on the secret.

Anyways.... A new challenge started on the 7 Kids Challenge blog yesterday.  This challenge and all the rest through the end of the year will have a theme of Anything Goes! 

My clean and not so simple card uses Whimsy Stamp's Marshmallows and Coffee, a Time for Tea Designs image.  I stamped her Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copics.  Here are the combos I used: 
skin: E04 E11 E21 E00 E000 R20 R11
hair: E35 E33 E53 E51
jacket: E44 E43 E42 E41
scarf and hat: E09 YR27 YR24 YR21
shoes: E77 E74 E71 E70
