Crazy About You

Good morning friends!  Today I'm sharing a card featuring stamps and dies by Crafty Meraki


These sweet images are from the Valentine stamp set.  I made a slimline card measuring 3.5" x 8.5".  I diecut the frame on my card from white cardstock using the View From My Window Slimline Die.


I used the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink to add the clouds to openings on the front of my card.


I stamped the images on Neenah cardstock, colored them with copics, and diecut them using the coordinating Valentine Coordinating Dies.


I adhered all the colored images with foam tape for some added dimension.  Lastly, I added some tiny heart embellishments to finish my card.

Good morning friends!  Today I'm sharing a card featuring a stamp set from Paperie Ink. 


These adorable snorkeling critters are from the Deep Down stamp set.  I made a slimline card measuring 3.5" x 8.5".  I cut the front panel from bristol card and then sponged it with Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, and Tea Dye Distress Oxide Inks.  I used a stencil to add some "rays" peeking through at the top of the water.


I used a die to diecut the dome shapes in the card front and then adhered the dome shapes to the front of my card.  I adhered the outter diecut frame with foam tape for some added dimension.  I stamped all the images on Neenah, ran them through my ScanNCut, and colored them with copics.  I used a black glaze pen on their eyes and heat-embossed white bubbles behind the critters.  I also heat-embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and adhered it with foam tape.

I'm Glad We're Friends

Hello friends!  Today I'm sharing a card I made for the My Favorite Things Color Challenge 167. 


I used two of the sweet images from the Snuggle Bunnies stamp set.  I think this stamp set is retired because I couldn't find it in their shop but hopefully they'll bring it back in a Vault release some day.  I colored the bunny and bear with copics and diecut them using the coordinating dies.


I used the Blueprints Dienamics 27 to diecut the stitched scalloped rectangle.  I used the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to create the clouds.  I used the Grassy Edges Stencil with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink to create the grassy area.  I stamped one of the sentiments from the set and then adhered the critters with foam tape.

Copics:
Bunny and Bear - E55, E53, E51, E50; E02, E00
Shirt - BG05, BG01, B000; YG17, YG13, YG01

We'll Always Flock Together

Good morning friends!  Today I'm sharing a card featuring a stamp set from Paperie Ink's latest release.


These cute little seagull friends are from the new Mine Mine Mine stamp set.  There are lots of different seagulls, along with accessories and fun sentiments.   There are five new stamp sets over in the Paperie Ink shop so stop by and check them out!


I made a slimline card measuring 3.5" x 8.5".  I cut a piece of bristol card, sponged it with Wild Honey and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Inks, and adhered it to my card.  I diecut some waves from bristol card and sponged them with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink.  I smooshed the same ink onto a matt, thinned it with water, and spattered it over the waves with a small paintbrush.  I adhered the back wave directly to the card and after stamping the sentiment, I adhered the front wave with foam tape for dimension.  I also diecut a small sandy slope from bristol and sponged it with Tea Die Distress Oxide Ink.  I spattered it with thinned brown acrylic paint and once dry, adhered it directly to the front wave. 


I stamped all the images on Neenah cardstock, ran them through my ScanNCut, and colored them with copics.  I used a black glaze pen on the seagulls' eyes.  I adhered all the seagulls and pilings between the two waves with foam tape.  



Copics:
Seagulls - C3, C1, C00; R20, R00; Y26, YR21, YR20
Palm Tree - E27, E25, E23; YG17, YG06, YG03
