Happy Twi-Day?

Hi everyone! Happy Friday!!

Ever since I did my two week countdown to New Moon, I have really missed making Twilight inspired cards! I have decided (and let's hope I can keep up with it!), to make a Twilight inspired card each Friday...which in Jodi-world, is now known as TWI-Day!!

I know that LOTS of you stampers out there have Twilight stamps...why not join me? I thought Friday would be a great day as I LOVE Fridays (well...I love Fridays AFTER 5:00 PM!! -grin!).

For my first card, which is also for today's Bellarific Friday, to use bling on your card (did you see I won the ENTIRE new Stamping Bella release??? Thanks SOOOOO much Em!!!) I used the UBER cute Betty Bookworm. Now, as soon as I saw this image, I, (a) knew I *had* to have her, and (b) wanted to make her "me" sitting on all my Twilight Series books! Look closely and you will see the names of each book in the series, Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse (that's what she is reading) and Breaking Dawn.

I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored her with Copics. For the bling, I added two Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to her ears as earrings and made her headband and eyeglass frames shiny with a Clear Spica Glitter Pen. The paper is the retired Summer Picnic from SU! The sentiment, "Twilighter and not ashamed" is from Stamp Insanity.

For my second card today, I used Jen's Sketch For You To Try from this past Saturday.

I started with this ADORABLE limited edition Digi Stamp from The Greeting Farm, Dressy Odette (Is she not THE most perfect Esme ever???), and I printed her onto Choice Snow White Cardstock. I colored her with Copic Markers and cut her out with Circle Nestabilities. As is my new habit, I kept the cardstock in the nestie and sponged around the edges with Pale Plum and then Perfect Plum SU! ink.

I chose a quote from Twlight for my card today when Bella and Esme were talking about Bella and Edward's relationship. Here is what Esme says:

"You're what he wants. It will work out, somehow"

I printed the quote onto Choice Snow White Cardstock, and I used Wizard Dark Cardstock from Prism and the patterned paper is (I think) from My Minds Eye!

I finished off my card with four Taylor's Tiny Twinkles on my Esme panel and some piercing! Other than that, there are NO other embellishments on my card!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by! Please let me know if you are excited about Twi-Day and want to play along!

  13. Jodi, I LOVED all of your Twilight cards and am so happy to see you continuing! That first one is a brilliant example of how versatile stamps can be if the stamper uses a bit of creativity!! I love it!!
    Ok, hopefully this doesn't put you off, but I mostly like Twilight because I am a Vamp fan in general, but I am more Old School. And by Old School I mean Buffy and Spike (that's my kind of Vamp!) There is the funniest video on YouTube that is Buffy VS Edward! I could not stop laughing!! :-)Traci
