Love these ladies

I just purchased these stamps from my friend Sam who sells for TAC. These ladies are so"sassy" and I have a small handful of friends that will appreciate them! I made these 3 cards using a couple of them from the set "Kalioppe". This first card uses SU Basic Black and TAC's Uptown Girl Paper Pack. I embossed (in black) the image and the words and then colored in the pants with a glaze pen and the shirt with just a black marker. I used Blush Blossom and Pretty in Pink on all 3 ladies bodies with a blender pen. I used Cotton Candy stickles for the dots on the shoes and glasses and the flower on the shirt. Inside the card I made a pocket using the stripe of the front paper attached to a piece of whisper white and embossed a happy birthday in black. This will hold a "substantial" gift card for my daughter for ther birthday.

I love the simplicity of this second card. Just Red and Black cardstock; images embossed in black; and colored in with red and black markers. I used Xmas Red Stickles for the shoes; glasses: flower; and fingernails. The swirl is also from TAC.

It is hard to really get the effect of this 3rd card but everything surprisingly matches perfectly. I used Pearlescent Cardstock from Colorbok; a glitter gel pen for the dress and the 3 metal dots at the bottom are from the $1 bin at Joann's. Everything about this card just "sparkles"
