Pink Cat Studio Lily & Billy Together Forever


Hi Friends!! You know. . .I have sooooooo many stamps and I want to buy more stamps but I feel I don't get to play with any of my old stamps because I keep buying new ones. I wish I could use them all and create cards all day long but well, that's not possible.

Today, I thought of buying a bunch of new stamps and I started to feel like I'm a little crazy because I have stamps that I bought 3 years ago. . .really cute ones and I haven't touched them for. . .3 years! LOL!! I think what I'm going to do is for every newer stamp that I play with, I'll create a card using an old stamp that I have. Let's all do that. . .okay. Let's play with our old stamps and give them some love too!!

Okay. . .now to my sweet Pink Cat Studio Lily & Billy Valentines card. I decided to create a card with this stamp image because it's almost Valentines. I think this card can be an all occasion card as well as Valentines card. I drew in the trees, grass, flowers, and butterfly to create a scenery. I actually did it last minute. . .it almost didn't work out because I already had started on coloring the background towards the center and had to squeeze in the tree image and flowers to the edge. Luckily it worked out!!

I colored my image using my Copic Markers and added a bit of Stickles to the flowers. That's about it.
Stop by Pink Cat Studio and check out all the fabulous stamps! They've go a lot of stamp sets for you to choose from and they're all super cute!!

Hi Maria, loving the vibrancy of colours and my favourite combo ! Clever doodling, i'm a scaredy cat when it comes to hand drawing on my cards :), Enjoy the weekend, love Katy x

Jen said...

Love your color combo on here, Maria. I just love the pinks, greens period. LOL!!! You're right about having to buy so much new stamps - can't use the old ones. That's one of the feelings I have been going through lately. Makes me nuts!!! I have this set, and I hope I can use it before VDay!!!!

Beautiful card! I love the colors! And I can so feel where you coming from on the stamps! I have been "organizing" my stash and I have a million stamps I've never used... but I'm always so tempted to buy more. I am putting myself on stamp suspension for 3 months. Let's see how that goes! But I am allowing myself to buy tools and embellishments. I can't go cold turkey!

Regarding my lenses - I ordered a 75-300mm (it was cheaper than the 70-300mm because its old style... longer and heavier. I think the 70-300 you have is shorter and lighter, and double the price +!). I also got a 60mm macro lens. Believe me, I don't know anything about my camera either. So sad! I want to take a class, but just too much going on and the cost is usually very high. I have books, and I read alot of stuff online, but alas, I think my brain is just too full of school and work to absorb it! I can't wait til school is over! I hope to be able to use that brain power to learn the camera!!!

Risa Malieta W. said...

Your card is beautiful Maria! Your color choice is awesome and I LOVE your added scenery!
I'm guilty of not loving a few stamps also. I really need to apply your rule and use an older stamp for each new stamp that I buy.

Risa:)
