Got Washi and Copic Color Matches for Basic Grey Soleil

I am loving the Basic Grey Soleil collection of papers!  These are all my favorite colors.  I thought it would be cute to color up Saturated Canary image Washi Tape Kinda Girl and pair it up with this cute paper.  I threw in some assorted washi tape from my collection and broke out my Spellbinders Nestabilities Card Creator A2 Dies to make the layers nice and straight.  I can honestly say that did not miss measuring on the paper cutter, not one little bit.  I used a Lil Inkers die to cut out the background on the sentiment and a random heart sticker.

Hugs and Kisses and Copic Matches for Carta Bella Devoted

Happy February!

I can't believe we are well into the second month of the year already.  I do so love making cards in February.  Valentine's Cards are so fun and easy to make. 

I have not been making very many cards lately as I prefer to use digi images.  When I got my new state of the art HP Envy All In One printer I quickly realized that it was no good for printing digis because the ink would make a smeary mess when I colored with my Copics.  Two weeks back I saw an ad in the Walgreens circular for a Cannon Pixma IP2702 (no frills) printer for only $19.99.  I couldn't believe how low that price was so I went to the store and decided to buy it.  Well that super cheap printer comes with ink that is compatible with Copics. I have to manually force the cardstock to get it to feed through but once you hold it, it will grip the cardstock and it feed straight through.   I was so happy I took a chance on it. I now refer to it as my Digiprinter!

I had a ball over the weekend coloring up this cutie from Saturated Canary. Hope you like her!
