LOVEY CRITTERS FROM C.C. DESIGNS


Artful Angel is a Sponsor over at the Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook Page this weekend. 


When I saw the Lovey Critters by C.C. Designs it went straight into my basket. I mean seriously. Look at these two critters - they are soooo cute!!


I stamped the image using my Mini MISTI with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink leaving the stamp in the MISTI. After coloring it in with my Prismacolor pencils I put it back in my MISTI and stamped it again cleaning up the black lines.


I cut the panel using the largest die in the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched 4 Bar Die Set then adhered it directly to a card base.

HEY THERE


I made this card for a Penpal card swap at StampNation. Haven't heard of StampNation before? It's one of the most fun stamping communities on the internet -click HERE to learn all about it. 

There was a beautiful group of pics for inspiration for this months swap. I was inspired by the snowy background in one of the pics and by the colors.


I ink blended the sky using Tranquil and Stone Blue inks going heavy around the edge. I tore some white card stock to make the snowy hills and adhered one directly to the sky panel and the other with some craft foam.
The trees are from one of my all time favorite stamp sets - Fun Forest - and there are coordinating dies. I stamped the trees with Rose Petals and Cranberry Fizz inks then stamped the branches and trunks with Merlot ink. Who says trees have to be green? I cut them out with the coordinating dies then adhered them to the card popping two of them up with craft foam.
The sentiment is from the Ways to Say Hey Dies. I cut it out from white card stock then swiped the Stone Blue ink pad across it. 


I mixed a little bit of white acrylic paint with some water then splattered it all over the sky and trees for some falling snow.

STARS AND BACK FROM ALL DRESSED UP

 


All Dressed Up is a Sponsor over at the Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook Page and I couldn't be more thrilled. When I saw the Stars and Back digital image I couldn't wait to color it. You can check out ALL the adorable images HERE


This was not my first time coloring an image with Copic markers but it was my first time trying to color a night sky with them. I'm not thrilled with the result but I don't hate it either. I'll need to watch some tutorials before I attempt it again. 
After coloring it, I cut it with the 2nd largest die in the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched 4 Bar Rectangle Die set and added it with craft foam to a white card base.

SIMPLY OVERJOYED


Simply put I am simply overjoyed with the products in the Adventure in Asia Bundle that is part of the Global Adventure Pt. Deux Collection from Catherine Pooler Designs



I used one of the beautiful papers from the Parasols & Pagodas Paper Pack to create a backdrop for the origami flowers. 
The flowers are stamped with Midnight ink then colored in using a blender pen. If coloring is not your thing these flowers would also look great with being colored in. 


I cut them out with the coordinating die then adhered them to the card after I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set.
I adhered the panel to the card base with craft foam.
This card was super quick and easy to make and would be a great one to mass produce with different patterned papers. You could leave the flowers uncolored and change out the sentiment on a few to make a nice set of cards to gift someone.

IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY GO WILD!

 


I recently won a gift card to Gerda Steiner Designs and the Go Wild Stamp Set was the first one to go into my cart. I love this set!

I stamped out a few of the images using my MISTI and colored them in with my Prismacolor pencils. After I finished coloring I put it back into my MISTI to restamp and crisp up the lines.


I fussy cut each one out, added a piece of acetate for the jeep window then decided it needed to be adhered to the card with a wobbler. 


A few googly eyes and a simple sentiment finish this card. 



I'm linking up to the following challenges:





(Sentiment, CAS and Animal)

LET'S CELEBRATE

 


I have been having so much fun with the lanterns from the Lantern Festival Stamp Set. This time I did a little ink blending on the stamp before stamping them onto some white card stock.


I cut a panel with the stitched rectangle from the Post This Slimline Die, stamped the tassels and the hangers onto the card then adhered the lanterns that I cut with the coordinating dies. I popped up two of the lanterns with craft foam. I adhered the panel directly to a card base then stamped the sentiment with Midnight ink.

WE'VE BEEN FRIENDS FOR SO LONG

 


Guess who's a Sponsor this weekend over at the Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook Page?


Dr. Digi's House of Stamps is a Sponsor and there's a SALE too.  But it's only for the members of Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook Page. Not a member? No worries click HERE to join and then do some shopping with the sale. 

I used the Hangover Hannah image for my card today. I paired it with a sentiment from MFT's Sassy Pants Best Friends.


I colored her in with some Prismacolor Pencils and cut her out leaving a little white border.
I used Lawn Fawn's Walnut, Lobster and Hippo inks with the Slimline Bricks Vertical Stencil from The Crafters Workshop and made a brick wall onto some Gina K Moonlit Fog card stock.
I embossed a sentiment from MFT's Sassy Pants Best Friends Stamp Set with WOW! Super Fine White Embossing Powder onto Lawn Fawn's Licorice card stock. 
I adhered the brick wall directly to the card base then added the sentiment and the image with craft foam.


This card makes me giggle! 
This image doesn't just have to be used for someone with a hangover - it can be used for anyone who's not feeling well.

CONGRATULATIONS ORIGAMI BUTTERFLIES

 


The images in the Origami Cheers Stamp Set look so good without any color added to them especially when you pair them with some paper from the Parasols & Pagodas Patterned Paper. These products are part of the Global Adventure Pt. Deux that are now available for purchase.




I love cards that are full of color and pattern without actually doing any coloring. That's my card today.


The bottom piece of patterned paper was cut using the large stitched rectangle die from the Postage Stamp Die set and added it to a white card base with craft foam. I stamped 3 butterflies using Icing on the Cake ink, cut them out with the coordinating die then layered them onto a strip of another patterned paper. The middle one is popped up with some craft foam.



I added some Icing on the Cake ink to some scrap paper then heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. 
I think these two patterns are my favorite from the pack.
