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!

MFT Mermazing ~ Copic Colored ~ Sketch Challenge 347

I finally had a chance to pull out MFT’s Mermazing Stamp set I bought in May to make this week’s card for the MFT Sketch Challenge-Sketch 347.

MFT Mermazing stamp colored with Copic markers and patterned paper handmade card.

I first stamped the mermaid sitting onto a piece of Spectrum Noir paper using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and masked her to stamp the rock behind that she would be sitting on. I also stamped two more rocks as individual pieces.

I used Copic markers to color all of my images in the following combinations:

Skin: E50, E51 and E53
Hair: E50, E53, YR21, YR23, E35 and E37
Tail/hair piece/top: BG10 and BG13, I also used tip to tip for the medium shade blend
Rocks: E31, E35 and E37

MFT Mermazing stamp colored with Copic markers and patterned paper handmade card.

I fussy cut all of the images and set them aside for the moment. I wanted a sun set as the background for the little mermaid, and I used a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock, an MFT Radiating Rays Stencil and Distress ink to create it.

To put this card together, I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Echo Park Sweet Summertime paper pad using the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables from Lawn Fawn and adhered it to a top folding A2 sized card base. I took the sun rays background and die cut it using a circle die from Hero Arts Infinity Dies and then cut it in half.

MFT Mermazing stamp colored with Copic markers and patterned paper handmade card.  I arranged all of the pieces on top of the patterned paper, added a sentiment from the stamp set and a few enamel dots from Echo Park Petticoats and Pinstripes Enamel Dots collection to complete this card.

I really like the end result of this card and I’ve got a perfect little girl to give this card to. Until next time thanks for stopping by and always sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

MFT Sweet Sloth ~ Birthday card ~ Copic Colored ~ MFT Sketch Challenge

Hey everyone,

I used this cute little sloth to create a card for my entry in MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge-Sketch 346 for this week.

MFT Sweet Sloth birthday card colored with Copic markers and patterned paper handmade card.

I started by stamping all of my images from MFT’s Sweet Sloths stamp set onto a piece of Spectrum Noir paper using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink. I used both of the clouds, one of the flower images and of course the sweet little sloth.
Using my Copic markers, I colored all of the images using the following combinations:
Sloth and tree: E42, E43, E44 and E47
          In the tree branch, I added more of the E47 for a darker look
Leaves: YG11, YG13 and YG17
Small flowers: C1 and Y19
Large flower: Y19, RV11, RV14 and RV17
Cloud: BG0000 and B00

MFT Sweet Sloth birthday card colored with Copic markers and patterned paper handmade card.

Next, I did a little ink smooshing using Distress Ink in Twisted Citron onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and die cut it using a stitched circle die. 

Working on the large panel, I used a piece of patterned paper from American Crafts Everyday paper pad collection and a Stitched Rounded Rectangle Dies from Pink and Main, which I wrapped a piece of black and white twine and adhered it to a top folding A2 size card base.

To complete this card, I layered the circle on top of the panel and arranged all my images using foam squares for some added dimension. I used a sentiment from the stamp set, which I heat embossed onto a piece of black cardstock and white embossing powder. Adding a few pieces of sequence and some shimmer from Wink of Stella glitter pen for a little sparkle finished the card. As always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

MFT Pure Innocence Tutu Cute~ Sketch Challenge 345~ Copic colored card

Hey everyone,

I’m back this week with an overdue post and an absolutely overdue time to myself to craft. It’s been a busy couple of weeks getting the kids back to school but they are finally starting with their regular schedule and I can get back to my craft time.

This week I wanted to start off with a card I made to participate in the MFT Sketch Challenge 345. For me, this particular sketch just begged to be made as a shaker card and I did just that (even though I’m still a bit intimidated by creating shaker cards).

MFT Pure Innocence Tutu Cute stamp colored with Copic markers and patterned paper handmade card.

To start, I stamped the My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Tutu Cute image onto a piece of Spectrum Noir cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink, since it is a Copic friendly ink.

Copic colors I used to color my image:

Skin: E50, E51, and E53
Hair: E23, E25 and E29
Tutu and shoes: RV32 and RV34
Belt: C1, C3 and C5

I then added some shimmer to her dress and shoes and thought I would be fancy and use my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers in Pink Champagne, which changed the color of my image. That was not the intended action but it was fine. There is no starting over! 

Next, I worked on the shaker window by first taking a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and ink blending with Distress Oxide Ink in Worn Lipstick. I added a few sprays of Sheer Shimmer Spritz to activate and dabbed it with a paper towel.

MFT Pure Innocence Tutu Cute stamp colored with Copic markers and patterned paper handmade card.

Working on the top panel, I took a piece of white cardstock cut down to 4.25” x 5.5” and stamped My Favorite Things’ Star Celebration background with Altenew Rose Quartz dye ink. I cut a strip of American Crafts’ Dots & Stripes paper and adhered it to the star panel.

Taking a circle die, I cut the center out where the shaker would fit, creating the nested look for the shaker. However, this was an afterthought and there was some minor surgery to get the shaker to fit.

To put this card together, I created a background for the shaker with a cloud stencil and Distress Oxide Ink in Worn Lipstick. I know that it’s not a realistic cloud scene but blue just did not fit here. So we have pink clouds and that’s ok. I adhered the rest of the pieces onto the panel, added a sentiment and finished off the card with a few pieces of Simon Says Stamp Moonshine Confetti Mix.

I hope you enjoy this softer looking card as I don’t tend to make too many of these and as always thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
