I Hope Your Birthday Is Poppin'

Hello crafty friends!  I have a sweet birthday card I made for a sketch challenge on the My Favorite Things Blog

I found some time to play along with the MFTWSC 602 this week!  I stamped these cute images from the Purr-fect Pairs stamp set and colored them with my copics.  I used a black gel pen on their eyes and a white gel pen to add some highlights to the kitties and fish balloons.  I sponged two rectangles with Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass, and Broken China distress Oxide Inks.  I spattered the rectangles with water, white gouache, and watercolors paints.  Once dry, I adhered them to my card base.  I stamped one of the fun sentiments and heat-embossed it in white on black cardstock.  I adhered all the images and the sentiment with foam tape.

Happy Birthday

Good morning and happy Monday!  I hope you had an amazing weekend.  Today I'm sharing a fun shaker card featuring a digital stamp from the LTTS Doodles Etsy Shop

I cut a panel of bristol card that measures 4.25" x 5.5".  I sponged the panel with Antique Linen, Spun Sugar, and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks and then spattered it with water and white gouache.  I decided to make an edge-to-edge shaker so once I had my acetate adhered on three sides, I added clear sequins and stars and then sealed up the fourth side of the shaker.  I adhered the panel to the front of my card.  I printed the adorable birthday girl from the Lulu Birthday stamp set on Neenah cardstock and colored it with copics.  I used a white gel pen on the hat pompom and a black gel pen on the overall buttons.  I adhered the birthday girl directly to the acetate.  I sponged a strip of bristol with the Worn Lipstick and stamped the sentiment using a stamp from my stash.  I apologize for the glare on the card but I find it so hard to get a good photograph of shaker cards because of the acetate.

Copics:
Hair - E37, E99, E97, YR21
Skin - E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20

Reverse Confetti - June Stock Your Stash

Hello crafty friends!  Today I'm sharing a card I made for the Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash Challenge.

The theme for this month's challenge is Hello/Just Because.  I love having these types of cards in my stash because they can be used for so many different occasions!  I used several stamps to create today's card.  The cute critters are from the Heart Pals stamp set, the sun/clouds are from Better With Friends, and the bird is from the Chalk It Up stamp set.  I colored all the images with copics and used both a black gel pen and white gel pen on the critter's eyes and faces.

I used the Easter Cover Panel Confetti Cuts to diecut a scalloped panel from bristol card.  I inked the panel with Cracked Pistachio, Mowed Lawn, and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks and spattered it with water drops.  Once dry, I stamped a sentiment from the A Beautiful Day stamp set and adhered the panel to my card front.  I glued the flowers directly to my card and then adhered the rest of the images with foam tape to give my card some dimension. 

I hope you play along in the challenge.  The random winner receives a $20 gift certificate to the shop!

It's A Wonder-fur World

Happy Monday friends!  Today I'm sharing a card featuring some of the products from the latest Paperie Ink release!


I stenciled some clouds onto a stitched rectangle using Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink and then added a piece of diecut grass that I sponged with Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink.  I stamped images from the Yappy Talk and Dog Days stamp sets.  I colored the images with copics and diecut them using the coordinating dies.  I used a black glaze pen on the puppy eyes and noses, and used a white gel pen to add highlights to the images.  I used the Wooden Fence die to cut the fence from kraft cardstock.  I used distress ink to add shading to the fence and then adhered it to the card with foam tape.  I stamped a few doggy prints in the grass and then adhered all the images with foam tape.

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

Hugs, Anita
