Guest Designing for STAMPlorations!

Hi friends!
I have a great joy to be part of STAMPlorations design team for a three months term in July-October. Me and two other ladies, Gloria  and Lee Ann, are creating cards for your inspiration with STAMPlorations products and lots of coloring. This post is extremely photo heavy so I'll go straight to the 3 cards I have for you today! Click HERE for the main post at STAMPlorations blog. 

Card 1
My first card is created using Bloomtangled ATC #2 stamp and Crazy Double Running Stitched Nesting Dies along with a discontinued sentiment stamp. Coloring with Copics + gel pens.

Below is a close up or the front panel. I used dark colors for all the smaller details and spared the bigger images, like flowers, for the brighter colors to make them pop. List of Copics and pens used:

Greens: YG000, YG01, YG03, YG05 (lighter green)
G40, G43, G46 (darker green)
Yellow: Y01, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17
Dark Red: R37, R59
Pink: RV 23, RV25
Grey: W1, W3, W5, W7
Purple: BV00, BV02, BV04, BV08
Blue: B14, B16, B18

In addition to Copics I used black, white, golden and sheer glittery gel pens. 

Card 2 
This card created with Darling Dog Roses stamp and Stained Glass Stencil + discountinued sentiment. Coloring with Copics.

Card 3
My third and final card is created with Heartfelt Thanks-rose stamp, Luggage Tags Nesting Dies + again the same discontinued sentiment stamp. I've colored my tag with Copics, white gel pen and Wink of Stella. I attached the tag to a card base I had covered with patterned paper.
