It’s So Nice Having a Friend Like You

I don’t seem to have much free time lately…time to stamp just for fun.  I’ve recently decided that I need that time, and so I’m going to make the time to do just that.  And here we go!  🙂

I absolutely adore Stamping Bella‘s Uptown Girls.  I equally adore the sentiments that come with each.  Some are warm and fuzzy, some are cute and quirky.  I ♥ them ALL.

This is Uptown Belinda and Bernadette The Bench Buddies.  Soooo sweet.  I truly love this image.  (Warm fuzzies.)   🙂

I colored with Copics then added in the white dots on the red shirt using Copic’s Opaque White (and a toothpick). The little tab at the top was die-cut using My Favorite Things Mix & Match Banner and the little layered heart is from Notched Tag Die-namics.

  • Tip:  If you have a favorite stamping paper that’s bright white (like X-Press It Blending Card) but want to use warmer patterned papers, sponge the edges of your white paper with a lightly toned warm ink .  Here I used Ranger’s Antique Linen Distress Ink to create an easier flow into the warmer patterns.

Thanks for visiting!   Have a great day:)
