Happy Saturday everyone!
I was in the mood to make a quick and easy card the other night when I came across this old Art Impressions Cathy Caffeine stamp. I got it years ago - and it's still available (links below) so I decided to ink it up again:
I stamped the image onto Neenah Solar White 80lb card stock with Hero Arts Intense black ink and coloured it in with Copics.
I forgot to take a pic of the colors I used but I included them in the video for those that want to know!
After I coloured in the image I paper-pieced her shirt with a pattern from the Your Next Stamp Crazy for Coffee 6x6 papers. I also used a couple of the other papers in the pack on the card front.
I added some shimmer to her earrings and shirt and shoes with my Sakura Stardust pen - one always needs a pair of glittery shoes lol.
I used the remaining pieces of the patterned paper from the front of the card on the inside. In hindsight I would have adhered the patterned paper first THEN stamped the sentiment so that it was more centred inside those papers - BUT this is what happens when I'm making a card and my kids are running around in my office and we're just having fun LOL!
To see how this card came together check out my video below:

I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube. If the product images have sets of letters below the image it means there's more than one place it can be purchased.
