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.

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!

My Favorite Things Purr-fect Friends ~ Zig Clean Color ~ Valentines Day Card

Hey everyone,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and was able to enjoy spending the time with family and friends. I am enjoying my time off and spending it with family. I was able to sneak away into my craft cave and create a card inspired by current My Favorite Things’ Color Challenge # 83.

My Favorite Things Pur-fect Friends stamp set colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and ink smooshing background handmade Valentine card.

To create the background, I used a piece of watercolor paper and #82 Purple Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker to ink smoosh onto the paper. I cut the panel down to 4 by 5.25 using MFT’s Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die.
The images were stamped onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using VersaFine ink in Onyx Black and colored using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

Color combinations I used

082 Purple
061 Light Brown
042 Turquoise Green

Originally the bird cage was stamped onto a piece of white paper, however, after cutting it out, I did not like the look. So onto plan B, I pulled out heat resistant acetate and stamped the bird cage image on it.

To put this card together, I used a piece of cream colored cardstock as the base of card, added the watercolor panel and adhered all of my pieces either using Ranger multi medium matte or foam adhesive for some dimension.

This is my entry card for the My Favorite Things’ Color Challenge # 83.

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

My Favorite Things Polar Bear Pals ~ Copic Colored ~ Distress Oxides Background ~ Christmas Card

Hey everyone,

This weeks’ card is inspired by MFT’s Color Challenge # 82, and the card I made using MFT’s Polar Bear Pals. Personally, I love polar bears and I think they are one of the most majestic wild animals on this earth.

My Favorite Things Polar Bear Pals stamp set colored with Copic Markers and Distress Oxides ink backgrounds handmade Christmas card.

I started by ink blending a piece of watercolor paper using Distress Oxides Ink in Salty Ocean to create the background and die cut the panel using MFT’s Stitched Rectangle Stax’s.
The various polar bear images were stamped onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. I am still learning to pair my combinations and blending but I think these images did not turn out too bad.

Working on the snow banks, I used a piece of white glittered cardstock and die cut the banks using MFT’s Stitched Basic Edges 2. I adhered those pieces to the card base and added my images with some foam tape for dimension.

All there was left to do to complete this card was stamp the sentiment and add some falling snow using 3D Puffy paint. In hindsight, I would have chosen a different sentiment and maybe even heat embossed it with white embossing powder. And my falling white snow has now taken on a bluish tint from the background. And lastly, I will be very happy to finish using up the glitter paper, as it flakes terribly. Although I am happy with the design of my card, some components not so much and will note to self for future!

The inspiration for this card is MFT’s Color Challenge # 82

That’s it for me for now, as always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

MFT Pure Innocence Happy Banner~Copic Colored~Birthday Card~Color Challenge 78

Hey everyone,

Today’s card is inspired by the My Favorite Things’ Color Challenge 78, and I made this one for a very special upcoming birthday.

My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Happy Banner colored with Copic Markers in combination with patterned paper handmade birthday card.

I started by stamping my image onto a piece of Spectrum Noir Ultra smooth cardstock and colored it using Copic Markers.

Dress/Socks: Y11, Y13, and Y17
Banner/Bow: R22, R24 and R27
Shoes: B34 and B39
Hair: Y21, E33 and E47
Skin: E000, E30, E11 and R20

Working on the card base, I cut a polka dot piece of patterned paper down to 4”x 5.25” and rounded the corners with a punch. I adhered the polka dot panel to a cream colored A2 sized card base.

Taking the same cream colored cardstock, I die cut a circle and a frame from blue cardstock attaching them together and adding a piece of fun foam for dimension.  

To complete this card, I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set using Versamark clear ink and heat embossed it using blue embossing powder.

And that completes the card which I am also entering into the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge Sketch 353.

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

Hey everyone,

MFT Pure Innocence Be Mime stamp colored with Zig Clean Color Real Waterbrush pens and patterned paper handmade card.

I used MFT’s cute little girl from Pure Innocence Be Mime stamp set and stamped her onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink.
I colored the image using my Zig Clean Color Real Watercolor Brush pens.

Colors I used:

Jeans: Persian Blue
Shirt: Wine red and a white gel pen
Skin: Flesh color and shaded with Blush
Hat and shoes: Black
Hair: Mid Brown
Glove: Light Grey

To put this card together, I stamped a diagonal stripe on one edge using Hero Arts’ Deep Ocean hybrid ink. I cut a piece of adorable red with white stars patterned paper from Echo Park Birthday Wishes paper pad, and adhered it to an A2 top folding card base. I took a piece of grey cardstock and cut a stitched circle and the sentiment tag. The sentiment I used is from the same stamp set as the image and I stamped it using Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink. For final touches to the card, I added a few blue rhinestones from my stash.
