Working on the card base, I used a pale pink panel on the bottom of the card base, then I attached a black mat panel for the patterned paper to sit on.
Adding the sentiment, the focal point image and some glittery starts completes this sweet and simple birthday card perfect for a little girl.

That’s all for me today, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

 

My Favorite Things Town Bear ~ Copic Markers ~ Distress Oxide Ink ~ Birthday Card

Hello everyone,

I am again participating in the MFT Sketch Challenge #375 and MFT Color Challenge #89 with this card featuring the adorable bear from the Town Bear stamp set.

My Favorite Things Town Bear stamp colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds Birthday handmade card.

To begin, I stamped the images onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and cut them using my ScanNCut 2.

I colored the images with Copic markers with the following color combinations:

Bear – snout: E53,E51 and E50
             nose: E49, E59 and E57
             ears: R11 and E01
             body: E59, E57 and E55
             shirt: YR18, YR07 and YR04
Trees: YG25, YG01, YG17 on the leaves! Tree trunks: E59 and E57
House: Y15, Y13, YR07, YR04, BG07, BG05, BG02 and BG000

My Favorite Things Town Bear stamp colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds Birthday handmade card.

To create a little scene on the main panel, I used MFT’s Cloud Stencil and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink to create the sky and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink to create the hill by blending the ink with an ink blending tool onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock.
After completing the ink blending, I die cut the panels using a die from MFT’S Die-Namics Stitched Rectangle Stax set and MFT’S Die-Namics Stitched Scallop Basic Edge 2 Dies for the hill.

My Favorite Things Town Bear stamp colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds Birthday handmade card.

After stamping the sentiment, I added all of the images either directly onto the panel or with a little foam tape for dimension. Working on the card base, I adhered a panel of green gingham from Doodlebug Designs 6×6 Gingham-linen Rainbow Petite Prints paper pad to an A2 sized card base and added the main panel using craft foam. I added a few flower enamel stickers from Doodlebug Design Shape Sprinkles Tiny Flowers to complete this card.

As always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Gerda Steiner Designs’ Spring Bunny Friends ~ Copic colored ~ Just Because Card

Hello everyone,

I am again participating in the Gerda Steiner Progressive Monthly Challenge with this card featuring the Spring Bunny Friends digital stamp image.

Gerda Steiner Designs Spring Bunny Friends digital stamp colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds handmade card.

I printed my digital image onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock and colored my image using Copic markers.

Brown Bunny: E39, E37, E35, V93, V91, W9
Grey Bunny: W5, W3, W1, V93, V91
Flower: YG17, YG13, V09, V25, V22

After I finished coloring the image, I printed another copy onto regular copy paper and fussy cut the image out to make a mask.
I learned a little trick a while back of using copy paper as mask paper by adding a little bit of repositionable glue onto the printed image. I happen to use Aleene’s Tack-it Over & Over glue and letting it completely dry before I add it as a mask. I’ve never had a problem of it ripping or not being able to lift off of the original digital image.

Gerda Steiner Designs Spring Bunny Friends digital stamp colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds handmade card.

I used Distress Oxide in Cracked Pistachio and an ink blending tool to add a little color to the background and filled some of the space with YNS Gumdrops enamel dots.
To put this card together, I die cut a purple panel from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid 6×6 petite paper pad using the largest die from Lawn Fawn’s stitched rectangle stackable die set and adhered it to an A2 sized card base. I then die cut a green strip from the same paper pad and adhered it on top of the previous one.
Taking the focal point panel, I added it to the front with foam tape for a little dimension, stamped the sentiment onto a piece of green plaid scrap paper and added sparkle to the bunnies using the Spectrum Noir sparkle clear overlay pen to complete this card.

That’s all for me today, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Paper Nest Dolls Hugs and Kisses Emma ~ Copic Colored ~ Valentine’s Day Card

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing my last Valentine’s Day inspired card for this year with the help of an adorable digi image from Paper Nest Dolls called Hugs and Kisses Emma.Paper Nest Dolls Hugs and Kisses Emma digital stamp colored with Copic Markers and patterned paper background Valentine’s Day handmade card.

I always print the digital images onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock with a laser printer and cut the image using my ScanNCut2.

Using my Copic markers, I colored the image with the following color combination:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13 and R20
Hair: E29, E27, E25 and E53
Dress and socks: BG49, BG57 and BG53
Shoes: W9, W7 and W5
XO, Heart, Bows: R39, R29 and R27

Paper Nest Dolls Hugs and Kisses Emma digital stamp colored with Copic Markers and patterned paper background Valentine’s Day handmade card.

Working on the largest card panel, I started by cutting a piece of teal paper using the largest die from Lawn Fawn’s Stitched rectangle die set and adhered it to an A2 top folding card base. Next, I cut a piece of red embossed paper from a Recollections Valentine’s Day paper pad set just slightly smaller than the previous card panel and adhered it on top. And finally I added a hearts patterned paper cut with MFT’s Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle to a teal mat with some foam tape on slightly askew for my main focal image to sit on.

This card will end my Valentine’s Day series for 2018 and will be entered into the following challenges:   

Paper Nest Dolls February Challenge,
Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #159 Add a heart,
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Simons Says – Add a die cut,

Your Next Stamp Love and Smiles ~ Copic colored ~ Valentine’s Day card

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing a card I made that was inspired by YNS’ Sketch and Color Challenge # 82 using the Love and Smiles stamp set perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Your Next Stamp Love and Smiles stamp set colored with Copic Markers and pattered paper backgrounds Valentine’s Day handmade card.

I started by stamping my main image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock and Copic colored the image.

Color combination I used:
Bunny: RV66, RV63 and V01
Balloons: R39, R29 and R27

Your Next Stamp Love and Smiles stamp set colored with Copic Markers and pattered paper backgrounds Valentine’s Day handmade card.

My card is based on the sketch design with the layers slightly altered. I used a piece of purple pattern paper from the DCWV Bright Patterns cardstock paper pad and cut it using the largest ripped rectangle die set. I adhered that piece on top of pink glitzy strip of cardstock from the DCWV Glitzy cardstock paper pad and added the main focal point of the bunny using some foam tape, the sentiment and a few glittery enamel dots to complete this card.

This was such an easy and fun card to create perfect for that last Valentine gift!

That’s all for me today, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Gerda Steiner Designs Panda in Love~Copic Colored~Valentine’s Day handmade card

Hey everyone,

Valentine’s Day is only a little more two weeks away and I’m continuing to create some more fun and adorable Valentine’s Day cards. For this card, I used the January Challenge Image from Gerda Steiner Designs.

Gerda Steiner Designs Panda in Love digital stamp colored with Copic Markers and patterned paper background Valentine’s Day handmade card.

This adorable panda sitting in a pile of hearts is beyond cute and I love seeing the different designs for one image.
To start, I printed my image onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock using a laser jet printer. With my ScanNCut 2, I cut the image with a slight white border and somehow lost a couple hearts in the process but it was no big deal.
I colored my image using Copic markers with the following combination:

Panda: (Black) W9, W7, W5 White W1, W2, 0, R21, R20
Hearts: R59, R39, R29 with a touch of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen

Gerda Steiner Designs Panda in Love digital stamp colored with Copic Markers and patterned paper background Valentine’s Day handmade card.

One of my favorite color combinations to use is teal with red or pink and I had the perfect teal Valentine’s Day paper in mind. From Crate Paper Main Squeeze collection, I had a 12×12 paper called Just Love, which I die cut using Avery Elle Postage Stamp die and added my focal point image. Working on the card base, I added a piece of striped red and white paper from My Favorite Things’ Hearts & Stripes Paper pack collection to the card base. I added the focal point panel slightly skewed with some fun foam for dimension and added a sentiment using a new to me stamp line from Cardz TV called Beary Sweet. As a final touch, I adhered three hearts to finish this card.

“Sharing the Love” Valentine’s Day Blog / Video Hop

Hey everyone,

I’m participating in my first ever blog hop with a blog post and a video tutorial of the card I made using some adorable products from Lawn Fawn.

Lawn Fawn Mom + Me stamp set, Bee mine stamp set, stitched clouds backdrop, stitched clouds backdrop, big scripty words stamp set colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds Valentine’s Day handmade card.

My card was inspired by the fox family in the Mom + me stamp set and a few other products to create this not-so-traditional Valentine’s Day card.

One of my favorite cards to create is a scene card especially if it is forest related and I honestly don’t know why I gravitate toward that scene but I do.

Kindred Stamps Polynesian Adventures, Glass Slipper Princess and Building Blocks Thank You Cards

Hey everyone,

I hope you’re still enjoying the holiday season with your family and friends! As a preschool teacher, I am taking some much needed time to rest, relax and play in my craft room. I needed to make a ton of thank you cards since I have the most generous students and each one gave me a Christmas gift.  And since my students are 3 years old, the pop culture stamps from Kindred Stamps are perfect for them.

Kindred Stamps Polynesian Adventures, Glass Slipper Princess, and Build Blocks stamp set colored with Copic markers thank you handmade card.

I decided to use three different characters, just to mix it up a little bit. I stamped all of my images onto a piece of Neenah solar white 80 lb cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink and used my Scan N Cut 2 to cut all of the images with a slight border.
I have to say that I LOVE my Scan N Cut 2, it has more than paid for itself, and made this project in particular easy to complete.

Kindred Stamps Polynesian Adventures, Glass Slipper Princess, and Build Blocks stamp set colored with Copic markers thank you handmade card.

I used my Copic markers to color all of the images and the combinations are listed below.

Polynesian Adventures girl
Skin: E35 and E57
Hair: E79, E59 and E47
Top: R46 and R49
Bottom Dress: E11 and E 13 then I took Y13 and went over it to lighten it
Top layer of dress: 0, W1, W2 and Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen

Building Blocks guy
Face and Hands: Y19 and Y38
Shirt: B29 and B26
Pants: C9, C7 and C9

Glass Slipper Princess
Skin: E00, E21, E11 and R20
Hair: E50, E51, and E53
Dress, earrings, and head piece: B21, B23 and B26

Kindred Stamps Polynesian Adventures, Glass Slipper Princess, and Build Blocks stamp set colored with Copic markers thank you handmade card.

After coloring the images, which took a little time since I had 20 to color, the only thing left to do is assemble my die cut pieces onto a piece of white card stock, add some little touches of embellishments and write my thank you messages for my students.

I absolutely adore the end result of these thank you cards. I may create some more to have on hand for the next round of gifts! As always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Gerda Steiner Love you Sew much Bunny digital stamp ~ Copic colored ~ Distress Oxide Ink background

Hey everyone,

I’ve been on a digi stamp kick lately and this card is another one I made using a digital stamp. This one is from Gerda Steiner Designs for their Monthly Progressive Challenge.

Gerda Steiner Love you Sew much Bunny digital stamp colored with Copic Markers and Distress Oxide ink background handmade card.

After printing my digital image onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock, I colored the image using my Copic makers. For the background, I tried a technique I saw Jennifer McGuire do a few months ago by using an acrylic block with ink swiped across and adding water. Then simply turn the acrylic block over onto a piece of water color paper, leave for a few minutes and remove slowly to allow to dry.

Gerda Steiner Love you Sew much Bunny digital stamp colored with Copic Markers and Distress Oxide ink background handmade card.

Color combination I used:

Bunny: E33, E35 and E37
Heart: RV04 and RV09

After stamping the sentiment from a Pink and Main Somebunny stamp set using VersaFine Onyx Black ink, the only thing left to do is put all the pieces of my card together with a bit of glitter for some sparkle.

That will complete my entry for the Gerda Steiner Monthly Progressive Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge  

 

Thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
