The first card features a Eureka stamp (ES-1802 ) and a Eureka digi sentiment (ES-digi2706 Believe.) I’ve always liked the smile on this cute cat’s face. But only recently did I realize that he looks like he just saw something magical… like maybe Santa? I stamped the image with a black ink pad, then shaded the image with a grey Spectrum Noir marker. I drew irises on his eyes with a green Spectrum Noir marker, then used a black Sharpie extra-fine marker and Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen to add additional details to his eyes. I added the “Believe” sentiment, upon which I perched a little Santa hat (upcycled from an old Christmas card.) The “Merry Christmas” sentiment on the inside is computer-generated. The HoHoHo sentiment is a sticker from my scrapbook stash.

My second DT card for the QKR Stampede Challenge is a graduation card. The front features a Eureka digi (ES-digi18802-girl graduate.) I colored the graduate with Spectrum Noir markers and added details with a white Sakura Gelly Roll gel pen. The “Hat’s Off” is computer-generated, the little graduate cap is from an old Stampin’ Up set, and the background paper is from my scrapbook stash. The inside sentiment is from Eureka Stamps (ES-digi5507 Congratulations Digital Stamp) I added a bit of bling to the front and inside of the card with die-cut sparkly stars.

This castle and frog stamp is from a Stampin’ Up set named “Dreams and Dragons” that was one of the first SU sets that I purchased a few decades ago. I love pairing it with sentiments that I printed from my computer. Actually, this card includes most of my favorite things- patterned paper, vellum, photo corners, ribbon (sheer and satin), a humorous sentiment and, of course, some bling! (The “rubies” on the frog princes’ crown, plus a few flanking the inside sentiment, allows me to enter this card into another favorite of mine, Double D’s Challenge.)
