Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #45

Hi all! Thanks for joining me for a card for this week's Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge. Here is this week's challenge:


Here is my card:


I used the lovely Rollerblading Chloe for my card. I know I was suppose to use red, blue and white, but I had to sneak a couple of others in it. =)


Chloe and her cute dog is stamped and colored on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock. The image is then cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Large die.


The patterned paper is from the Lime Twist Fly A Kite collection by My Mind's Eye. The cloud paper actually has a scallop border on it. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

That's all I have. Please go and check out what the other design team members came up with for this challenge and find out all the details for the challenge here. Hope you can join us this week! =)

Blah blahs... Please feel free to skip this part. =) Someone asked a question about which printer I use and how I prepare my paper for printing in order to color with Copic markers. I  have an HP LaserJet Pro CP1525nw. It's a laser printer and it's exactly why I got it. Laser printers use toner instead of inks, so there is no problem with ink smearing with Copic markers. Here is a more detailed post on this issue by the amazing Marianne Walker. You can read the comments for suggestions on photo/color/inkjet printers that would work for Copic markers.

I do nothing to prepare my paper for printing and coloring since I have a laser printer. I did make sure that the printer I got is able to print heavy duty paper like PTI's Stamper's Select White (110lb.) cardstock. Hope this helps and thanks for sticking around. =)

Such a cheery card--I love it! Perfect papers, too! Thanks for educating me on printers. I'm just bumming off my daughter's printer which is probably an inkjet. I didn't know there would be such a difference! Thank you!!
