Sets I'm Really Liking

The first set that I'm really liking is The Angel Company's "Everyday Events". There are some CUTE images in this set! This set covers birthday, wedding, friendships, thanks, Christmas, baby, etc... It has some of the most adorable images in it! These two cards (the fish and the chair) were made using that set. I used my Aquacolor crayons (my favorite medium for coloring) with a water brush to color both of the images on the cards. The sentiments are in the stamp set too and those can be mixed or matched!

This chair card layout was taken from a design that Gwen did. She does fabulous work and I loved the simplicity in her card. This is my version of her design. In real life this card has more coral in it than what the scan picked up but you get the idea. There are also lots of sparkly stickles on the flowering plant.

The next set that I am really liking is TAC's "Kid Praises". What a FUN set! I used to collect cows but that fad ran its course years ago but I still couldn't resist the cow in this set! He's so CUTE!! I used the "Circle Sampler" set (LOTS of options with this set!) to make the background using Brilliance Moonlight White ink (the BEST white ink!!) on the black cardstock. It just said cow spots to me! How easy and fun to make my own background! To color the cow I used Prismacolor H20 Pencils with a dove blender and then went around the entire image with a gray Tombow marker to add a shadow. Doing that really helps the image to stand out and it literally only takes seconds!

Both of these sets are fun, fun and can be used for many different occassions! I LOVE them! I'm sure that I'll share more sets that I'm really liking later, but for now, enjoy!
