Have A Sloth-Some Birthday!

Let's Celebrate You
Good afternoon friends! I'm sharing a birthday card I made for the latest sketch challenge over at My Favorite Things.
This adorable image is PI Sweet Birthday Girl. I colored her with copics and diecut her with the coordinating dienamics. I used a white gel pen to add some highlights to the image. I followed the MFTWSC634 for my design. I diecut a stitched rectangle from colorful striped pattern paper and adhered it to my card. I diecut a tag from white cardstock, sponged it with Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink, and spattered it with white gouache. I attached the tag to my card and adhered a bow that I diecut using an older MFT dienamic. I stamped a sentiment on the tag and then adhered the birthday girl with foam tape.

Sending Holiday Hugs - Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge 14
Good afternoon crafty friends! I have a Christmas card to share with you today and I've used an adorable image from my favorite ETSY shop - LTTS Doodles!
I've been trying to work on Christmas cards throughout 2023 so I can build up my stash and not panic when November rolls around. I enjoy playing along in the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge because it motivates me to make at least one Christmas card! The theme for for their February challenge is to add at least one heart. I diecut a stitched rectangle and sponged it with Pumice Stone, Tumbled Glass, and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks. I spattered the panel with white gouache and once it was dry I stamped a sentiment and adhered the panel to my card front. This cute image is from the Coffee Break stamp set and there are several different cups and bunnies to choose from. I printed the image on Neenah cardstock, colored it with copics, and fussy cut it. I used a white gel pen on the bunny's eyes and cheeks and added a few tiny heart embellishments to coffee cup. I adhered the images with foam tape to give some added dimension to this clean and simple card.

Bow - R59, R39, R37, R32
Cup - C5, B39, B37, B34; R39, R37, R35

Sending You All The Feels
Good morning and happy Friday crafty friends! Today I've got a sweet card featuring a new clear stamp set by Streamside Studios!
These cute images are from the Yeti Yeti Yeti stamp set and the sentiment is from the new All The Feels stamp set. You can find both of these sets in the Streamside Studios Etsy Shop. I diecut three small hearts from a 4.25" x 5.5" panel of white cardstock. On the base of my card (behind the heart cut-outs) I sponged Kitsch Flamingo and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Inks. I adhered the diecut panel to my card with foam tape to add some dimension to my card.
I colored the yeti and balloons with copics and fussy-cut them. I added some highlights with a white gel pen and adhered them directly to my card. I heat-embossed the sentiment and adhered it under the yeti's feet so that it appears she's standing on the sentiment.
Yeti - V17, V15, V12, V01, V000; E13, E11, E21, E00, R20
Balloon - BG15, BG23, BG11, G000
