Hello Spring

These sweet bunnies are from the Hello Spring stamp set.  These bunnies seem to be having a bubble-blowing party!  There are lots of bunny stamps, along with bubbles, flowers and sentiments.


My card measures 3.5" x 8.5" so I cut a piece of bristol card that size and sponged it with Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks.  I spattered it with thinned white and blue acrylic paints and then adhered it to my card front.  I sponged Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks onto a strip of bristol card and diecut it using a grass die.  I spattered it with white and green acrylic paints and adhered it to my card using foam tape.  I sponged Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink on bristol board and diecut my letters with an alphabet die.


I stamped all the images, ran them through my ScanNCut, and colored them with copics.  I applied Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the bubbles and bunny noses.  I adhered the bubbles and bumble bees to my card with liquid adhesive and adhered the bunnies and flowers with foam tape to add some dimension to my card.

I printed the image on Neenah cardstock and colored the images, grass, and sky with copics.  I used a stitched rectangle die to diecut the image and adhered it to a top-folding card.  It's such a clean and simple card but I love the way it turned out.

These sweet bunnies, eggs, and painting accessories are from the new Happy Easter stamp set.  There are lots of different bunnies to choose from to create some really cute Easter or spring scenes.

I Just Wanted To Bug You

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

These sweet ladybugs are from the new Bug For A Hug stamp set.  There are so many different ladybugs to choose from, along with a few leaves and sentiments.

I decided to make a slimline card measuring 3.5" x 8.5" so I would have plenty of room to use a lot of the ladybugs.  I stenciled clouds onto white cardstock and then adhered a diecut grassy slope for the grass.  I diecut the window frame from black cardstock and adhered it with foam tape to my card.  I stamped the ladybugs and leaves on Neenah cardstock, ran them through my ScanNCut, and colored them with copics.  I adhered all the images with foam tape for dimension.  I used a black glaze pen on their eyes and also their polka-dots on their shells.

Hello Bluebird Stamps - Mushroom House

Good morning friends.  I've been guest designing for Hello Bluebird Stamps and today I'm sharing my last card as a guest designer.  This release includes lots of beautiful 6"x 6" background stamps and it's been so much fun creating cards with these stamps.

This background stamp is Mushroom House and I paired it with the Nextdoor Gnomes stamp set.  I stamped the image on Neenah cardstock and colored it with copics.  I stamped the gnomes, ladybug, and dragonfly on Neenah, colored them with copics, and then diecut them using the Nextdoor Gnomes Dies.  I adhered the images onto my card using foam tape.  This Mushroom House pairs perfectly with these cute gnomes but would work so well with lots of other Hello Bluebird stamp sets.  I think the adorable fairies from the Fairy Garden Stamp set would look especially cute with this Mushroom House.  I think I will have to give that a try real soon!

Happy Birthday

Good morning!  I'm popping on to share a birthday card today.

This is an image that I colored many years ago but never made into a card.  It was colored with Prismacolor colored pencils, long before I discovered and fell in love with Copic markers.  I need to build up my stash of birthday cards so I thought it was time to put these sweet animals on a card.  I'm pretty sure this is a Penny Black stamp ... a wood mounted stamp at that lol!  While it may be an older image I still think it's sweet and hopefully the recipient will enjoy it.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hey There, Valentine

Good morning everyone!  Today I'm sharing a quick and easy Valentine card featuring a cute critter by Reverse Confetti.  


This adorable bear is from the Heart Pals stamp set.  I colored the little bear with copics and fussy cut him.  I used a black glaze pen on his eyes and nose and I used a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on his heart.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I heat embossed it, cut it into a strip and adhered it to the tag.  The fun pattern paper and tag are from the Sweet Talk Collection by Simple Stories.  All I had to do was diecut the diagonal plaid paper with a stitched rectangle die and apply it to my card.  The preprinted tags are part of the collection so I just had to cut it from the 12 x 12 sheet.  I added some black twine to the tag and applied fun foam behind it for dimension.  I also adhered the bear with foam tape.  The tiny hearts are diecut from the pattern paper and glued directly onto the tag.  I applied Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the hearts for some shine. 

Copics:

Bear - E57, E55, E53, E51, E50; N8; E02, E00

Shirt - BG13, BG11, BG10

Good evening friends!  I just wanted to pop on here to share a slimline Valentine card I made using stamps from Paperie Ink

These cute critters are from the Crafty Friends stamp set.  There are lots of crafty critters in this stamp set and I thought it would be perfect for a Valentine card.

I cute my card base from white cardstock to measure 3.5" x 8.5".  I used the Scalloped Slimline With Hearts Landscape die to cut the pattern paper and red hearts.  I colored the panda and bunny with copics, fussy-cut them, and adhered them to the card with foam tape for dimension.  

Copics:

Panda - C3, C1

Bunny - E53, E51, E50; E02, E00

Letters - RV55, RV52, RV10; R29, R27, R24




Thanks so much for stopping by. 

Hugs, Anita

You Warm My Heart

Good morning friends!  I'm so excited to be guest designing for Rachelle Anne Miller Creative Studios

This adorable digital image is Penguin Hug.  I love penguins and thought this card would be so perfect for a Valentine card.  I printed the image on Neenah cardstock and diecut it using a stitched rectangle die.  I colored the image with copics and then fussy cut a mask to place over it while I did some distress ink sponging.  I sponged around the penguins with Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks and then spattered it with both white and dark blue watercolor inks.  I used a black glaze pen on the penguin and chick eyes. 

Copics:

Penguins - C5, C3, C1; Y38, Y35

Scarf - B37, B34, B32; BG05, BG01, B000

Good morning friends!  Today I'm sharing a Valentine card using an adorable stamp from Paperie Ink.

These little cuties are from the Many Thanks stamp set.  I used a cloud stencil and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink to create the clouds on my card.  I diecut the ground and inked it with Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks.  I sponged bristol card with Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries Distress Oxide Inks and then diecut the LOVE letters and lots of tiny hearts.  I colored the foxes and wagon with copics and adhered them to my card with foam tape.  I used a black glaze pen on the foxes' eyes and noses and used a white gel pen to create tiny hearts on the fox's scarf.  I adhered the tiny hearts in the wagon, in the fox's hand, and in the sky.

Copics Used:

I'm So Glad That We're Friends

Good morning friends!  Today I'm sharing a Valentine card that I made to send to some sweet friends.

This adorable image is from the Joyful Heart Bears stamp set by My Favorite Things.  I think this stamp has been discontinued because I couldn't find it in their shop.  I used the Perfect Bricks Stencil from Honey Bee Stamps and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink to create the background on my card.  The sentiment is from the Friends Forever stamp set by Pretty Pink Posh.  I colored the stamped image with copics and fussy-cut him.  I used a Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter pen on the hearts on his sweater and in the bucket.  I adhered the bear with foam tape for dimension and then added some red heart embellishments.

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

Hugs, Anita

Bring On The Snow

Good morning everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card featuring one of the newer stamp sets from Paperie Ink.

These cute skiing critters are from the Snow Good stamp set.  While I'm definitely not a skier, I do live in frosty Ohio and we've already had a few snowfalls this year.  This stamp set is perfect for creating all your winter cards!  I decided to make a slimline card so I could feature several of these sweet little animals.  My card measures 3.5" x 8.5" and is made from red cardstock.  I adhered some blue snowflake design paper and then adhered a snow slope using foam adhesive for dimension.  Next I added three frames that I diecut from the same red cardstock, and I also added some snowflakes.  

I stamped the animals on Neenah, ran them through my ScanNCut, and colored them with copics.  I used a black glaze pen on the penguin's eyes and added some Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the penguin's beak and feet and also to the fox and moose noses.  I adhered the animals with foam tape also.

Copics Used:

Fox - E08,  E15, E13, E11; E01, E000; 100; C3, C1; G99, G94, G43; R59, R37, R35

Penguin - C3, C1; YR04, Y38; B99, B97, B95, B93, B91

Moose - E55, E53, E51, E50; E01, E000; G99, G94, G43; R59,R37, R35; B97, B95, B93
