Victoria Case ~ Cosmo Cricket

Have you seen Victoria Case's artwork? I've been keeping an eye on her work. I did purchase a digi at the beginning of the school year, Ben, a boy headed off to school. (It was a limited edition.) I'm on her email list and she recently offed a special and I couldn't resist and bought a few. I mentioned that I would love it if she ever designed a boy gymnast as I haven't been able to find any boy gymnastic stamps for scrapbooking Troy's last few years in gymnastics. Well, don't you know that within a few days she drew two for me!! They are awesome! Take a look at her site! (Just scroll down just a little.) Aren't these great?! Thanks so much Victoria! Troy loves them!

This image, Bee Friends, is one of the stamps that I purchased. I used the SCS CS270 for my layout. I had to add the pearls at the bottom to add some balance. I started out coloring the green because of the Copic Creations color challenge #23 to use green.

Do you follow the Cosmo Cricket blog? Are they hysterical or what??? LOVE reading their blog! I couldn't help but post a comment recently and guess what I won??? Some yummy blog candy: a Double Deck of Material Girl & Garden Variety and some Tiny Type stickers. (I have been watching for Cosmo Cricket at my local large retailer's stores, but haven't jumped in yet.) The designer paper on my card is all from them. I loved the yellows with the Garden Green card base. (That center embossed So Saffron piece looks better IRL, the color didn't scan well.) I love the earthy Spring feel to this card. Thank you so very much Cosmo Cricket! I am really looking forward to using more on some future projects!
