Artful INKables Blog Hop!!!

Hello! The INK Girls are blog hopping today to show off the new sets available from Artful INKables! Hopefully you came here from Holly's blog, but if not make sure you start at the beginning which is Kristin's blog : )
I got to work with this beautiful new set called A Friendly Light. For my first card, I stamped the lighthouse/beach image and colored it with Copics. I added some Stickles to the clouds, and Glossy Accents to the crab. I punched out the sentiment with my new Modern Label Punch from SU and sponged the edges with Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink. The base of the card is Not Quite Navy, the red dp is from Ski Slope DSP, and the blue dp is from Bella Bleu DSP both by SU. The lacey border was made using my Fiskars Lace Border Punch.
My next card is very CAS which is totally out of my comfort zone : ) I stamped 3 images from the A Friendly Light set with Memento Rich Cocoa onto Very Vanilla cs. I used a Square Nestability to cut them out and popped them up on Dimensionals. The dp is from SU Bella Bleu DSP and the base is Kraft cs. I added the ribbon and Dew Drops and it was complete! Now hop on over to Velta's blog to see what she has in store, but don't stop there because there is sure to be some blog candy along the way! Thank you so much for stopping by : )
