Birthday Cards for Olivia

Hi friends.  I have a very quick card share for you today.  A few days ago I saw on the news a story about this little 7 year old girl named Olivia who was battling cancer.  Her 8th birthday is coming up and all that she asked for was an Elmo doll and birthday cards from people (she loves to get mail).  I wanted to share with you the card that I sent her.  Today there is no supply list because to be honest I wasn't planning on sharing it.  But, I thought her story was just amazing and wanted to share it with you.

I used a mixture of Stampin' Up! products as well as a few other images that I had in my "stash".  I believe that the cake is from the Fifteen Candles set but to be honest the company that makes it is escaping me.  This is a set that I have had FOREVER!!!!!

Of course I made the card Elmo themed being that Olivia loves Elmo and then decided to put a fun pop-up element with the cake on the inside.  I thought this card would be perfect for our young birthday girl.  I wanted to share her story with you too, in case you would like to send Olivia a birthday card of your own.  You can visit a newscast about her HERE.

Well, I hope you all have enjoyed this share today and until next time...

Beany Easter

Hey there stampers! Welcome to Mrs. Lincoln's Inkin' and today card share.

Today I am sharing an Easter card that I made which involves a ton of Copic Coloring.  Sometimes it is just so therapudic to sit back and color... like we did when we were kids.  My daughter and I have been doing a lot of coloring lately (she loves crafting just like her mommy) so while she is coloring her books, I stamp and color some images.

For this card I thought it would be cute to have jelly beans falling out of the jar from the newly released Lawn Fawn stamp set, How You Bean.  I wanted it to be more of an "Easter" card with the bunny so I took the little guy from the Going Places stamp set and had him peak out from the massive pile of jelly beans.

Here is a closer look at the set that I used today:

So that is the quick post for today.  Hope you all enjoyed and until next time...

HUGE (but simple) Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone. Welcome to Mrs. Lincoln's Inkin' and today's super SUPER simple card share.  

Today I am sharing a birthday card that uses the adorable stamp set Wild Birthday by Avery Elle.  This is such an adorable set and is one of my favorites to color with any kind of medium.  Today I chose to color this cute little hippo with some simple Copic markers.  Now, I made this card prior to making my supply lists for my blog here, so I apologize about that, so I am unsure of the exact ink colors that I used or the exact "red" that I used for the base of my card.  But I am pretty sure that I used my C1, C3, and C5 Copic Markers to color in my hippo.  This is just some super simple shading in the areas where I thought there would be a shadow.  Just to add some interest to this card, I used my Large Stitched Rectangle Dies from Lawn Fawn. Being that this card is so simple, it is definitely listed under Sara's Simple Shares.

Here is a closer look at the Wild Birthday stamp set that is featured in today's card:

Well friends, that is all for today.  Thanks a bunch for stopping by and taking a peek.  Until next time...
