Hello Slimline Card

Hi crafty friends and happy Friday!
I hope you are doing well and have some fun things planned for the weekend.
I am hoping to get outside and do a little more gardening. We have been having a bit of a cold front come through so not sure if that is going to happen or not. Fingers crossed!
One of the great things about papercrafting and stamping is that since I can't get outdoors, I can pull out some stamps and bring the outdoors inside and pretend I'm gardening haha!

Here is a look at the card that I would like to share with you today:


 I stamped my flowers, masking off some of them so that I could create a little field of daises.  Once I had the flowers stamped, I did some simple coloring with my Copic markers and used a stitched slimline die to cut it out. Once it was cut out, I used a light blue Copic marker to go around the edges, as well as around my flowers, to create the feeling of a sky. I stamped my greeting and then adhered my image panel onto a eyelet edge slimline die and popped it up onto my gray cardbase with foam tape. I stamped those little bees (adorable!), colored them with Copics and then fussy cut them out. I added a bit of shimmer to their wings with a shimmer pen and then popped them up with more foam tape. I completed my card with a few sequins and white Nuvo drops for a little interest.


I think this turned out so fun!

Copic Colors Used:
--Flowers: C00, C0, C1, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y18, G21, G24, G46--
--Bees: C2, C4, Y11, Y13, Y15, B0000--
--Sky: B0000, B000--

You Are Mermazing!

Hi crafty friends and happy Tuesday!
I hope your week is off to a fabulous start so far!

Today I have a Mermaid themed card to share with you that I created.


This was really pretty simple to put together. I started by creating my cardbase from some heavy weight cardstock and then covering the front with a piece of striped patterned paper. I used a Zig Zag Stitched Rectangular die from MFT to die cut my white cardstock and used a circle die to cut out my window. I popped it up onto some pretty patterned paper to act as my sky and then adhered the entire piece onto my card front. I used the Be A Mermaid stamp from Simon Says Stamp for my Mermaid Tail and did a bit of simple coloring with my Copics. I fussy cut it out and tucked the bottom behind my window, making sure to have the fin come out of the window. I added my greeting and tied a bow at the top of my card with some crochet thread. I finished the card with a few white doodles with my gel pen, along with some pearls, sequins and glossy accents. 


Easy peasy!

Copic Colors Used:
--Mermaid Tail: BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG49, BG75--

Happy Little Birthday

 Hi everyone and happy Friday!!
Today I have a super adorable (at least I think so lol) card to share with you that I made for a few different challenges. 

The challenges that I will be entering are:
&


Fun challenges right? Here is a look at the card that I created to play along:


I think this little stamp from Sugar Pea Designs is just the cutest!  I have fond memories of my daddy  watching Bob Ross on TV and being mesmerized at the painting that was taking shape while he watched. I finally pulled it out and inked it up for the first time, smiling the entire time I was coloring. Not only for the memories but for the cuteness factor, I mean c'mon! lol! Anywho, I'm rambling again. Back to the card. I love the simplicity of the sketch and just rolled with it. I created my A2 card base from some white cardstock and cut out another white layer using a stitched die. I colored my pieces with my Copic markers and adhered them to my card, using double thickness foam tape for my artist. I heat embossed my greeting with some white embossing powder onto a piece of black cardstock and popped that up just a bit using a single layer of foam tape. I completed my card with some black doodles along the perimeter with a black Micron pen and some glossy accents on the paints and paint can. 


I just adore how this turned out!

Thanks Slimline Card

Hi crafty friends and happy Thursday!
Today I have a Slimline style card to share with you that features NO STAMPING! What!!??!!
Here is a look at my card:


 I was finally able to sit down and play with my Spellbinders kit that I received last month! I had so much fun doing this card while watching a bit of TV. Took me back to my Cross Stitch Days haha! Anywho, I'm starting to ramble. This was so super easy to do! I started with a white Slimline cardbase and die cut my Stitched Thanks from the April 2021 Small Die Of The Month from some more white cardstock. The hardest part of this card was getting all those little die cut dots out and cleaned up but even that wasn't too awful :) Once it was ready to go, I pulled some DMC floss colors that I thought would pair well together and started stitching. Once I had that complete. I die cut my THANKS letters from some pale pink cardstock, adhered them and then popped up my stitched panel onto my cardbase with some foam tape. I completed my card with a bit of shimmer on the letters with a Clear Wink of Stella pen and some tiny little pink pearls here and there. I love doing this card and think it turned out so pretty!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Rain Or Shine

Hi everyone and happy happy Friday!!
Any fun plans this weekend? I hope to be able to get outside and get some plants in the ground. I'm ready for some pretty colors in the form of flowers outside lol!

I was able to get a card made today that I will be entering into a few challenges.
Here is a look at my card:

I started by using a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches (sketch and link below) to create my cardbase. I love using sketches to get the creative sparks flying! Anywho, I chose some coordinating papers and then colored those sweet bears from Penny Black with my Copic Markers to match. Once I had them colored, I used my Scan N Cut to cut it out and popped it up onto my card with some foam tape. I stamped my sentiment, flagged one end and used more foam tape to pop it up. I completed my card with a little bow in the girl bears hair and some glossy accents on the umbrella handle. This card is going to my hubby so I kept it fairly simple and didn't add a lot of bling or embellishments.


I love making cards for my hubby, no occasion needed, and sneaking them into his lunchbox or truck for him to find. 

Copic Colors Used:
--Dk. Brown Bear: E31, E33, E35, E37, R20, R00--
--Lt. Brown Bear: E40, E41, E43, E44, R20, R00--
