It's Your Special Day

Happy Monday crafty friends!  Today I'm sharing a birthday shaker card using a new stamp set by Pink & Main.


This sweet image is from the Mice Birthday stamp set.  I cut a 4.25" x 5.5" panel of white card stock, embossed it with a polka dot embossing folder, and adhered it to my card.  Next, I die cut a circle and frame and sponged them with Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry, and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Inks.  I spattered them with water and once they were dry I stamped a sentiment on the circle.  I adhered a circle of acrylic behind my frame and then adhered foam tape to the back of the frame.  I added sequins to the circle and then adhered the frame to create a shaker card.  I colored the image with copics and adhered it to my card with foam tape.

Copics:
Mouse - C3, C1, C0, C00; E01, E00, E000; R20
Purple - V15, V12, V01
Pink - RV55, RV52, RV10
Blue - BG05, BG02, B000

May Your Holidays Be Wrapped In Happy

Hello crafty friends!  Today I'm sharing a Christmas card I created for some challenges over on the My Favorite Things Blog.


These cute snowmen are from the JB Snow Happy stamp set.  I colored them with copics and fussy cut them.  I used a black gel pen on the snowman's eyes and a white gel pen on both of the snowmen's cheeks.  I cut a 4.25" x 5.5" panel of pattern paper an adhered it to my card.  I die cut circles from both white card stock and blue card stock.  I splattered the blue circle with thinned white guache and adhered a snowy slope on both.  I matted the blue circles on the white circles and adhered them to my card.  I adhered the snowmen to the card with foam tape.  I stamped a sentiment from the JB Gnome For The Holidays stamp set and adhered it to my card.

You Are Sew Amazing

Hello friends!  Today I'm sharing a card I made using lots of products by Lawn Fawn!


These adorable images are from the Sew Very Mice stamp set.  I stamped them on Neenah card stock, colored them with my copics, and die cut them using the coordinating Lawn Cuts.  I used the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables to die cut a 4.25" x 5.5" rectangle from Knit Picky Lost Mitten patterned paper and attached it to my card.  I die cut a piece of white card stock, inked it with Victorian Velvet Distress Oxide Ink, and adhered it on the bottom of my card.  I stamped one of the sentiments along the bottom edge of my card.  I used the Embroidery Hoop Lawn Cuts to die cut the embroidery hoop from white, kraft, and gray card stock.  I also inked a piece of white card stock with Victorian Velvet and adhered it behind the embroidery hoop.  I adhered the hoop and all the images with foam tape to give my card dimension.

Happy Birthday Wishes

Good morning crafty friends!  Today I'm sharing a birthday card featuring a fun digital stamp from the Amanda Jayne Designs etsy shop!

I printed the cute cow on Neenah card stock, colored it with copics, and fussy cut it.  I cut a panel of white card stock and inked the grass and clouds with distress oxide inks.  I added a border of bright pattern paper on the left side and adhered this to my card front.  I stamped a birthday sentiment from a stamp in my stash and adhered the cow with foam tape.  I added a few tiny die cut hearts that I colored with copics to match the flower bouquet.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day!
