Girlfriends and Sisters. . .

I saw this stamp from Art Impressions Girlfriends collection called Laughing.  I knew it would make a great card for one of my sisters (not that it wouldn’t fit all three of them!).  Whenever we get together, we spend a lot of time laughing…and the older we get, well, you know…

Here is what I came up with…


I colored the image with my Copic markers.  I used a new stencil I got from Hero Arts and used some Pistachio Pudding ink from Stamp Up to put the image on some paper I had.  I used a die from Stampin Up to cut the image out.  For the “puddle of tears”, I used some Crystal Effects and added some blue re-inker to add some color.  I let them dry, and then added them to the image.  I used the sentiment from the set for the greeting at the bottom. 

Another look…

On the inside, I used the “hello” die from Memory Box and cut it out using three different colored papers.  I thought this was just enough on the inside.

A peek inside…


You can find a list of my supplies is at the bottom of my post.

And one final look…


Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
