School Friends and Playful Puppies

I had lots of fun coloring these new School Friends set from Pretty Pink Posh and thought why not combine it with these adorable Playful Puppies which I previously colored. Also, joining this week's challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of Using a Die and or Punch. 

To get this card started, I created the background first using an ink blending tool along with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink and than went on to create some grass by inking up white card stock using Mowed Lawn Distress ink. Afterwards, I decided to create a texture to the grass so I used a small cloth, added a little water to it, and than daubed the card stock until I liked it. 

Next, I used the Scallop Borders to die cut the grass and overlap them together to create a hill look, but before adding it to the card, I used the Picket Fence die to add to the scene in the middle. 

For this card, I used the Coordinating die for the puppies and balls along with the Coordinating die for the little School Friends along with some foam mount tape to pop up the little girl and puppy in the middle.

Added a little sun using the Camping Friends set which I also colored using my copic markers: Y17, Y15, Y13 along with the Coordinating Die to help me cut it out fast. By the way, this stamp set is on sale today over at the Pretty Pink Posh Shop

To finish this card, I stamped this cute sentiment from the School Friends set and added several Sparkling Clear jewels along the top and sky.

Fly Away Friends and Dream Big

Back today with another card to join Kathy's 30 day color challenge. All the details on her blog, The Daily Marker

For this card, I pulled out this adorable Fly Away Friends set from Pretty Pink Posh as I love these little critters along with the different balloons and little hearts.  

Once again, I started off by creating the background by using a Sun Ray stencil and added some yellow rays using an ink blending tool.  

Next, I pulled out these Scallop Frames die to use for the shaker portion of the card and decided to keep it white. From there, I used the scallop border from the Stitched Borders 2 collection to create the cloud. 

To add a little blue to the cloud, I ended up die cutting another scallop border and used Salty Ocean distress oxide to add some color and than pieced them together.

This Fly Away Friends set has several sentiments to choose from so I combined two of them together and embossed it using white embossing powder. Plus, I couldn't resist but to use these little hearts from the set. The Coordinating Die made it easy to cut them out. 

To fill this shaker, I first glued down some Silver Mini Star Confetti and than went a little crazy adding in 1/4" Iridescent Star Confetti along with Sparkling Clear Mix which has an assortment of sizes ranging from 4mm through 10mm sequins.

Last but not least, I added some foam mount tape under the balloon and little critter to pop him up. Also, to add even more sparkles, I added some Pearl White jewels around the sentiment as it has a nice contrast against black card stock.

Sending You Love with Flourishing Fushia

Back today with a card to join Kathy's 30 day color challenge. All the details on her blog, The Daily Marker

When I saw these Flourishing Fuchsias from Pretty Pink Posh I couldn't resist but to create a special card of sending you love. 

To get this card started, I created the background first using an ink blending tool along with some ink from Simon Says Stamp. 

Colors from top to bottom: Maliblue, Hollyhock, Duckling, and Green Leaf.

Next, I used the diamond shape border from the Stacked Edges 2 collection to create the quilt panel in the center by cutting several rows and placed them together onto a piece of card stock. Later, I ran it through the die cut machine using the Stitched Notes die 

Once again, I couldn't resist but to use the Hummingbird Thanks set so I stamped one of them to color using my copic markers. After coloring, I used the Coordinating dies to help me cut it out fast.  

Here is the list of Copic color combination is:  

Wing & Head: RV55, RV02 (head)  RV55, RV52, RV02 (Wings)
Body: B06, B02, B00, B000, also the colorless blender to smooth things over and take away color from the center of the body and ends of wings

Flowers: RV55, RV52, RV02 & V09, V06, V04 Leaves: G21, G94, G99

Can you guess what new product I used? It's the word "Love" from the new Love You Script die from Pretty Pink Posh latest release and now available. To add some gloss on top, I used clear embossing powder and repeated the process three times and than embossed the "SENDING YOU" from the Rainy Days Additions using white embossing powder. 

To finish this card, I added several jewels using Pink Blush and Sparkling Clear to combine both as I love how they look together.

Get Well Soon using Playful Puppies

Getting back into gear again as I've been having lots of fun creating and coloring which is always the best medicine to make one feel better. Therefore, I plan on sharing more cards to come and decided to start with this card using this adorable Playful Puppies from Pretty Pink Posh along with some new jewels.

I really love this set has it makes me smile. Not only do I love dogs, but they have a cheerfulness that made my day so I thought to combine this fabulous Get Well Soon script die along with using the Stacked Edges 1 border to create this card. Also, I decided to use a different color combo that could be used for either male or female.

I'm in love with these new jewels and so happy to have them in Metallic Gold as it works perfect with this card. Almost forgot, I used the Coordinating die to help me cut out this cute little puppy and ended up die cutting the words twice to stack them together to have them pop up.

Happy Birthday using Easter Shaker Die

I'm back again today and since I was having fun with this Happy Easter Shaker die from Pretty Pink Posh I thought why not use it for a Birthday card as I wanted to make a special card for one of my sweet friends on IG who is celebrating their birthday. May all your wishes come true Michelle!! 

Also, joining one more time with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of Anything Goes. Here you go

I really love this Happy Easter Shaker die so I thought by cutting out the word Easter, I could turn it into a Happy Birthday card and use the beautiful elements of the die. So after I cropped the word out, I colored the flowers, leaves, and the "HAPPY" using my copic markers. 

For the word "Birthday", I used the Fox Friends set and stamped it down using black ink against the white. 

To make this into a shaker, I ended up die cutting the Happy Easter Shaker die again using white fun foam to act as the middle sandwich and than used an oval shaped die to cover the shaker.

To fill up this shaker, I used: Spring Blooms Sequins Mix as it has an assortment of pinks, purples, and iridescent sequins. Also, added several Mini Sparkling Clear Flowers and a couple of flowers from the Spring Flower Sequins Mix 

As you can see, the oval shape die fits perfect behind this Happy Easter Shaker die 

For the inside of the card, I decorated it by using the Scallop Oval Die along with using the new Bunny Friends stamp set as this little guy screams "fun, sending hugs, celebration, and more" to me. 

For the sentiment on the inside of the card, I pulled out Birdie Friends and stamped the banner sign. Later, I cut off the legs from the banner to have just the rectangle frame. Added foam mount to pop it up as this is what helps to hold the card upright so one can place anywhere.

Happy Easter Shaped Card

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter today. I've been having some fun playing with this Happy Easter Shaker die from Pretty Pink Posh and decided to try and create an Easter Egg shaped card to sit upright since this die has so many beautiful details. 

Very easy to make and even the kids could have fun doing one. Also, joining over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of Anything Goes   

For this card, I started off by die cutting the Happy Easter Shaker die and put it aside while I created a background using alcohol inks.

Next, I die cut the alcohol inked background using an Oval basic shape that fit perfectly behind the Happy Easter Shaker.

From there, I grabbed the next size up from my Oval shape dies to placed on top of an A2 size card and ran it through the die cutting machine.

Next, I scored the front top panel of the oval card at 2" and used a bone folder to make sure it was flat. From there, I die cut a single Oval shape using the same size using teal card stock and glued it down to the bottom half only. 

For the inside of the card, I decided to decorate by adding a Scallop Oval Die as I love the inverted scallops and it fit perfectly over the Oval Shape. 

From there, I couldn't resist but to use this new Bunny Friends stamp set again so I stamped one of the bunnies in the center and colored using my copic markers.
Here is one more Easter Egg shaped card using pink colored card stock, but I ended up using the the Scallop Oval Die on the top of this card as I love the stitching around the oval.

For this card, I created the alcohol background using blue colors.  

Again, I stamped one bunny using the Bunny Friends in the center and colored using my copic markers. 

For the sentiment on both cards, I pulled out Birdie Friends and stamped the banner sign to add a word. Later, I cut off the legs from the banner to have just the rectangle frame. Added foam mount to pop it up as this is what helps to hold the card upright so one can place anywhere.  

Had lots of fun adding several colored jewels:  WatermelonPansy PurpleLemon Drop, Pink Blush and Shamrock for the leaves.
