A Card for my 6 year old DD the Artist - A Sara Kay Stampation

"For My Sweet Little Artist Piper Girl"
Hello Everyone!!!!,
Well the Christmas Hustle and Bustle is finally over and I had some time to stamp. I actually made this card to go with my Dear Daughter Piper's Christmas gift. Piper so badly wanted some Piper Stamps since Willow was getting Whiff of Joy Willow stamps for Christmas. I searched, but never found any, so I bought some very cute Sara Kay Margoux images and under the title Sara Kay I added in pretty writing Piper the Artist, Piper helping Little Sister, and Piper playing with her Dolly to the stamps. Piper is still young enough at 6 she did not know that these were not really Piper stamps so she was totally thrilled to get her first "Piper" stamps!!!!! She is sooooo excited to use them, and I stamped some up today for her to color.!
Above you can see the full Card. I just had to use this wonderful new Sketch I have found from reading 3 of my favorite blogs Jami from Stamp Happy, Janna from Stamps Paper and Glitter Oh My!, and Danni from Danni's Dreams, who all happen to be on the Design Team for this new Sketch Challenge. The Challenge is Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesdays Sketch Challenge. Madelynn is a little girl believe it our not!!! Her very talented Mommy is the Whimsical Butterfly Blogger who I just recently found. Anyway, since this card is for my "Little Artist Piper" it seemed only fitting to honor another little Artist in the process as well!!! I know Piper will be thrilled when I show her Madelynn's Sketch Challenge!!! So here is the Sketch Madelynn created for us all to get creative with!!!

Madelynn's Sketch

For a young girl she does some pretty awesome sketches don't you think??? This Sketch was so pretty and involved it made me immediately think of Purple for some reason. Which was funny because before I even went to Madelynn's Mommies blog to see the sketches all the DT girls came up with I choose Purple, then after making my card and going to the blog I see one of the DT girls used all Purple too!!! How Fun!!!

Here is a close up view of Piper's new stamp "Piper the Artist" from Sara Kay. I colored in the image using my Copic Markers. I just got my very first order of Copics for Christmas, in the mail yesterday and today so this is my first Copic Creation!!! Yea!!!!
I used these Copics for Coloring:
Jeans - B00, B02, B05
Hair - Y00, Yo2, Y06, Y08
Cap and Paint Shirt - BV00, BV 02, BV 08
Skin - E00, R00, E95
Easel - E31, E35, E37
Paint Jars - R39, YR07, G17, Bo5
Bear Drawing - RVoo, RV04, RV09
I also used C1, C3, C5 and Black 100 in various parts of the coloring.
For the Sentiment I had wrote what I wanted with my Elegant Egg Plant SU Marker, then I punched it out with the Small Oval, and Lg. Oval SU Punches.

Here is a close up of the stamped image. I also added some cute Butterfly eyelets to the edges of the larger Label #1 nestibilities die cut, I added a bright metallic Butterfly eyelet to two corners and another flat purple color butterfly eyelet to the other two corners. I then got into my Embellishment tins and found these cute white and purple flowers to add to the smaller Label #1 nestie layer.

I got into my Textured CS Papers and picked out 3 different shades of Mono Chromatic Purples and then picked out a Purple Polka Dot DSP to go along with it. I die cut the Polka Dot DSP with the largest Scallop Rectangle Nestie Die, and my Big Shot. The other 2 dies are using the Label #1 largest and next largest nestie dies.

For the Cris Cross part I choose a really pretty lavender wired edge Sheer shimmery Organza Ribbon. For the middle line across the Cris Cross image I choose a dark purple gross grain ribbon with Polka Dots in it to go along with the Polka dotted shirt on the image, and the Polka Dotted DSP.

I put it all together and I used glue dots to put the ribbon on, then I popped up the Polka Dot layer with excess rubber from my stamps, I then glued on the first Label #1 layer with liquid glue, then I popped ou the 2nd Label #1 layer with excess rubber again, and lastly I popped up the artist image with SU Stampin Dimensionals. I also painted Royal Purple and Lilac Lace shimmerz on the purple parts of the image so they are really shimmery and shiny looking, but you do not really see that in these images.

Piper loved this card and asked me to make 2 more one for her little sister Willow and one for her best friend Grace next door. Well I will have to think about that one!!!!! LOL.

I hope you get a chance to check out Madelynn's Sketch Challenge, and I hope you enjoyed my Card for Piper, and my take on Madelynn's Sketch as well!!!! I just love that these little girls are falling in love with Stamping just like their Mommy's are!!!! It is a major plus because it gives us things to work on together and get to spend creative time together as well!!!!

Well here is a different view of the whole card, and now I must be going to go start laundry and clean up from the Christmas traveling we just got back from last night!!!! I just had to take a few minutes to play with my Copics for the first time though!!!! LOL!


Have a Stampendous Day!!!
