My First Day!

Hello everyone,
This is my first post.  Siehled with a Kiss is going to be about  a little bit of everything from my family to my obsession (that would be scrapbooking and card making).  I will try to bring you some of the sketches,  layouts, and cards that I make.  I will also share some of the things that I love right now. 

So let's get to it.  One of the first things that I made this week was this super cute card for our new neighbors.  I used Hero Arts stamps, copic markers, and distress inks.  Right now I am loving all of these things! 

First i stamped the image of the house and tree and then colored them with copic markers.  I then stamped the image again and made a mask for for it.  I then placed the mask over the colored image and used my blending tool along with the distress inks (shabby shutters and peeled paint) to make the grass.  Next I stamped my cloud background stamp from Hero Arts.  I used tumbled glass from the distress inks.  Finally I finished by adding a cute little butterfly and colored it in as well with the copic markers.  Super easy and a lot of fun to make.  It has all the things that I love right now--stamps, distress inks, and copic markers.

My next project this week was a super super fast layout that I did for Michael.  He loved going to Jack's soccer games and I took this picture on the soccer field of him.  Oh my he is just too cute!

Future Soccer Player?
Here I used some plain white cardstock, two pattern papers from Basic Grey Lime Rickey, buttons, and my title was created with the Mickey Mouse font from Cricut.  I just love his serious face.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.  I will be sure to post again real soon!  Thanks for visiting with me!
