Dots and Puddle Jumpers

I got my first (very) small set of Copics this week.  I took the class a month ago, but as most of you probably know, they are not cheap.  I used my discount from the Copic Standard Certification class to get a set of 24.  It is going to need a lot of supplementing just to get me to a place where I can use the minor skills I've learned.

This stamp is from my Puddle Jumpers set by Lori Boyd.  I love these kids!  My stamp sets are mostly full of words and sentiments.  These stamps were the first time I ventured into using stamps to color and create cards.  All that changed as I fell in love with the Cricut and became a major paper layering addict. I'm not as IN LOVE with the Cricut as I used to be and beginning the appreciation for coloring again.


Cricut cuts for the circles and scallops.
Fun use of dots at every layer
Stickles
Paper Flower
Brads
Ribbons and Ties



So combining the best of both worlds, I'm going to learn to color again.
