I love the “Mimi in Paris” stamp set by Penny Black. In fact, because I was on a spending freeze, I had Hobby Lobby (where the last one was available in my area) hold it aside for me for 3 days in a row! I know that may not be playing exactly by the freeze rules, but I saw a grey area and I took advantage. LOL!
Anyway, I made this simple scene card using a bit of stone wall patterned paper from my scrap box, some dimensional stickers, and, of course, Mimi herself colored with Copic and Chromatix markers. I love how it turned out.
This second card is one that I salvaged (and actually I like even a teeny bit better because no one else will likely have one altered like this one). The cardstock I used to stamp and color my image bled terribly. I thought I was being very careful, but at the end I noticed that Mimi’s cute little dot nose had become like a snowman’s carrot nose! This would not do. I would not “waste” a colored image. What could I do to save it? Well, I made Mimi into a clown-in-training! (bwahaha) My niece always claims that she “studies” better in cafes and other public places. She is currently a freshman in college and is staring down the barrel of finals while trying to secure a job or internship for the summer. In other words, it is nail biting time. I drew up a new sign for the front of the card that says “Clown School Cafe” and inside the card says, “Always have a Plan B” I crack myself up. hee hee hee
I’m going to be sending my niece this card along with some snacks and treats as a little care and good luck package. Hopefully the happy mail will bring her some good luck!
The following is a video sharing the cards:

Aww thanks Marla! You are so sweet. thanks for stopping by and leaving such a kind comment. Hugs, Kristina
Both cards are so cute! Great save on the nose! That was really smart! I like how you used the flower dimensional sticker on your card. I hadn’t thought to mix the digi images with lifelike ones, and it looks great together. Both cards are so sweet! I bet your niece will love her card! 🙂
Thanks so much! Yes, I mix lifelike and animated styles a lot. It kind of reminds me of kids’ cartoons that do that. I like the fun different look. 🙂 My niece actually called me all excited when she received her card and care package. The best thanks of all–she said that this totally lifted her spirits (which had been lagging for a bit). thanks for stopping by, hugs, Kristina
