Hanna, the Fairy, and Leanne

Remember the other day when I was telling you about Portland, and Sharon letting us play with her Copic Markers and how AMAZING Leanne can color? Well, here are the images she colored for me. I made the cards, but Leann did all the amazing coloring with the Copic Markers. When she asked what color for the Fairy, pink automatically blurted from my mouth. When she asked about Hanna, I restrained and said "whatever you want babe". DANG... girl can color huh?!

I'm not sure of the name of this style of card. I first got one from a super talented gal on SCS named OregonStamper. Here is her card and the instructions. At Stampin'Up! Regionals, they showed us a version of this style and it got my wheels turning. I did the same thing, but with the set they gave us from Regionals using the Coluzzle to make a circle.

This is the inside... hopefully you can see how it opens. It stays closed with the new Build a Brad from Stampin'Up! OMG... these are cool! You just punch out any image or paper with your 1/2 inch circle punch, then glue it on the brad, then cover with the clear toppers. If you place it just barely under your flap, it tucks in just enough to keep the front part closed and also pulls out easily to open.

Again, Leann colored this beautiful fairy for me with Copic Markers while we were in Portland. She really just "pops" off the paper in real life.

The bottom portion of this card is SO pretty. I need a shimmery/glitter button on the screen. LOL. My friend Mounds (okay, so really her name is Joy), was giving away some free Glimmer Mist over the weekend, so it challenged me to open it up and give it a try. I started with Stampin'Up Shimmery White card stock, then sprayed it with Snowflake Glimmer mist. I put too much on, so I reached for a sponge to dab it around, and the sponge had some Regal Rose ink on it so turned it a pretty rosie color! How cool is that? I wish you could see how glimmery it is!! I waited for it to dry and stamped The Snowflake first with Blush Blossom classic ink, then Regal Rose.

This card opens the same was as the one above, but instead of a brad to keep it closed, I used those cool little magnets. Thanks so much Leanne for coloring my images!! I want those markers... it's on my list... my ever growing list. LOL.
