Ice Cream Pengy

Good morning!  I've got a sweet little ice-cream loving penguin to share with you today!



I used one of the adorable penguins from the Penguins in Paradise stamp set to make a card for the latest sketch challenge over at My Favorite Things.  I colored the penguin with copics and cut him out with the coordinating die-namics die.  The banners were cut using the Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX.  I stamped the sentiment on a banner I cut using the Die-namics Sentiment Strips die.  I applied Glossy Accents on the penguin's beak, feet, and the ice cream. Then I added a  few enamel dots to finish my card.

Thank you so much for stopping by! 

Hugs, Anita

You Make Me Smile

Good morning everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card that I made for The Greeting Farm


Are you signed up to receive The Greeting Farm newsletter?  If so, you may have already seen my card in their "Here's A Tip" newsletter.  If you haven't signed up yet, be sure to do so.  I thought I'd pop on here and share my card with those that may not have already seen it.

I used the sweet Snuddle Anya and colored her with copics.  I wanted to add a little dimension to my card so I stamped, colored, and fussy cut an extra coffee mug and set of bunny slippers and used foam tabs to attach them onto the colored image.  You can't really see the dimension in this picture, but adding those elements with foam tape causes them to pop off the page a little.  This is a fun way to add some dimension to a card.  I used some cute paper from Doodlebug Design and then added some bright enamel dots.

Copics Used:
Skin - E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R30
Hair - E44, E43, E42, E41
Shirt - RV66, RV55, RV63
Shorts and Barrette - YG17, YG03, YG01
Cup - BG05, BG01, B000
Slippers - C1, R00
Book - C3, C1
Ground - W2, W1, W0

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Hugs, Anita

A Little Jelly Told Me

Good morning everyone!  I wanted to pop in and share a card I made with a cute and fun Taylored Expressions stamp and die combo.


I used the Oceans of Fun stamp and die combo to make this birthday card.  I stamped the images on Neenah cardstock, colored them with copics, and then diecut them using the coordinating dies.  The cute pattern paper is by Doodlebug Design and I used Your Next Stamp's Stitched Rectangle Die to cut that paper.  I used a cloud die to create the "rocks" at the bottom of my watery scene.  The little "bubbles" are Doodlebug Design shape sprinkles.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Anita

Paper Smooches - Hey Sugar!

Good morning!  I hope you're having an amazing week so far.  I used a fun set of stamps and dies from Paper Smooches to make this card.




This cute popsicle stamp is from the Sugar Rush set - lots of fun, sweet images in this set!  I colored the popsicles with copics ... not much coloring required though so that was quick & easy.  After I colored the images I cut them out using the Sugar Rush Icons Dies and then added some Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to them.  I made a round card using some dies from Spellbinders and My Favorite Things.  The bright striped paper and sparkly enamel dots are from Doodlebug Design.


I'm entering my card in the Paper Smooches July Challenge - their challenge this month is "summer" so be sure to check out their challenge details. 

 
Thanks for stopping by!
 
Hugs, Anita

Good morning!  I have a fun birthday shaker card to share today.



This little cutie is from Pink and Main's What A Hoot stamp set.  There are several fun owl images and cute sentiments in this set so be sure to stop by Pink and Main's shop to check it out!  I colored the image with copics and diecut him with the coordinating die.  I used the Stitched Rectangle Die from Your Next Stamp to cut the designer paper and white cardstock.  The shaker pouch is from Impression Obsession and the sequins are from Craft Medley.  I applied Glossy Accents to the owl's beak and feet and used my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen on the balloons.

Let's Chill

Good morning!  I've got a sweet little penguin to share with you today!



I finally got my hands on this adorable Penguins in Paradise stamp set and thought I'd color one of these cuties up for the latest sketch challenge over at My Favorite Things.  I cut a panel of watercolor paper and then used distress inks to watercolor a striped background.  I colored the penguin with copics and cut him out with the coordinating die-namics die.  The sun was diecut using an older die-namics that I think has been discontinued.  I stamped the sentiment and diecut it using the Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX.  Then I added a few sequins just to give my card a bit of sparkle.

Copics used:
Penguin - C5, C3, C1, R20, Y38, Y35, Y19
Tube - C3, R46, R24, R22

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful week!

You Are So Sweet

Happy Sunday everyone!  I hope you're having a fun weekend.  I used a cute Avery Elle stamp and coordinating die to make today's card.



This fun image is from The Scoop clear stamp set.  Lots of cute images and matching sentiments too!  This image reminds me of my childhood.  We had an ice cream truck that came through our neighborhood every day.  As soon as we heard the music from that truck, we all ran in to ask our mother's for money to buy a treat.  I guess I'm showing my age here because I haven't seen an ice cream truck in years lol!  I colored the image with copics and used the coordinating Elle-ments dies to cut out the truck.  The die cuts out the window opening so I thought I'd add some acetate and make a shaker card.  I added some Glossy Accents to the truck's headlight, and then added a few enamel dots to finish my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita
