I am so excited to announce that InStyle Stamps released their darling line of Anime stamps last night!!! I am pleased to introduce to you Mellie. Could she be any cuter?? I think NOT! LOL
When you go to InStyle Stamps to check out the rest of the Anime release, you will notice that Mellie is NOT holding a cupcake! She is actually holding a birthday cake. To turn the birthday cake into a cupcake, I cut around the candles to look like the top of the cupcake. I added lines to the bottom of the image to resemble the cupcake paper and used Liquid Applique for my frosting. After I puffed the liquid applique and let it cool for a minute, I took a glue pen to the top and added glitter. There is also glitter on the tray that the cupcake is on.
For the rest of the image, I used my ctmh markers and blending pen on watercolor paper to color it in. I have my first shipment of Copics coming to me next week and can't wait to be able to use those to color the new Anime images with!! It is the little things in life that excite me! LOL
What are you waiting for?? Go to the InStyle Stamps blog to see the darling cards that the rest of the DT came up with and then go to the InStyle Stamps site and order yourself some!!
Stamps: Mellie, InStyle Stamps and Say it in Style, ctmh
Paper: My Reflections Perfect Day ctmh

Thanks so much for stopping by, even though it has been 5 days since I posted art last but I did share our new little joy, Sadie.....
I hope that I have inspired you to take a 2nd look at your stamps and think outside of the box.....

InStyle Stamps new Anime release.......
Life has a way of throwing us curveballs when we least expect it. What we do and how we react to those curveballs, is up to us. Who would have thought that at the age of 45 I would be starting my life over, reinventing myself and finally figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. Well, ALMOST! lol I want to play with ink, paper and ribbon and share Stampin' Up's wonderful products and opportunities with you!! I am THRILLED to be part of this company and am looking forward to seeing where the wind takes me. Happy Stamping!!
