Bugs & Kisses

Friday, August 25th, 2017

   Happy Fri-yay, y’all! I’m so happy it’s the weekend! This was my kids’ first full week of school and I’ve missed them like crazy!

   I’m over on the CDD blog sharing this sweet little card I made using the Ladybug Garden stamp set. I fell in love with this set the minute I first saw it! I just love ladybugs and have always been told they bring good luck to those they choose to land on.

   I stamped out the ladybug holding the pot of flowers, the caterpillar, and a flower onto some Copic XPress it cardstock using Jet Black ink from Lawn Fawn. I cut them out with my Scan N’ Cut.

   To create my scene, I used the middle rectangle from the Inside Scalloped Rectangle Dies. These dies really help frame out a scene on a card. They’ve quickly become one of my go to dies! Plus, that double stitched edge is to die for (pun totally intended)! It’s layered 3 times with kraft cardstock. I also cut out the fence and a layer of grass from the Outdoor Landscape 2 dies. I sponged Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink over the grass layer and I used Broken China Distress Oxide ink for the sky.

   Here are a couple close ups so you can see the detail in the images. In these you can really see the wire I used for the antenna. I used glossy accents to hold it in place as this makes it really stay and not be able to twist around or slide out.

   I do hope you’ve enjoyed my card and it has inspired you to go create something using the amazing CDD products!.

Mermaids make me smile!

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

   I wanted to share a card that I made about a month ago. This little image was a freebie sent out in The Greeting Farm’s newsletter. I just LOVE mermaids and feel like I have to get ANY stamp with mermaids on it. 🙂

   This is a pretty simple top folding A2 card. I was playing around with coloring her up and decided to make a card. I used Doodlebug’s Sunkissed 6×6 paper pad for this one. I also used a lot of scraps. I even decided to use sequins! Hey, I may have a lot, but that doesn’t mean I want to necessarily USE them. The waves are inverted stitched scallops cut from scraps. The sun background was a file from silhouette that I inlaid. The rocks, I free hand cut myself.

   I didn’t do any fancy coloring with this one. I was mainly practicing hair. For a finishing touch, I put Clear Wink of Stella on the tail. What mermaid doesn’t have a shimmer tail? 😉

   I do hope you like my simple card. I LOVE it! I actually did NOT do anything on the inside. Nope, don’t feel my forehead. I’m fine. Just wanted to use this one as a note card.

CMFCM – Day 9

   I am so excited how today’s homework turned out! I’ve had this stamp for a couple of years and it has always intimidated me. I was always afraid that I would color the elephant too dark or that I wouldn’t color the bubbles right. Well, since I let my “inner cheerleader” out, I’ve been picking up all the intimidating stamps and know what? They don’t seem as intimidating!

   Day 10’s lesson was all about making backgrounds for behind your images. I’ve tried, but I’ve never been really happy with how things came out. Today, I’m totally happy with how it came out! I was even brave enough to turn the little flowers into a bush! 🙂

   I chose to not use a class image today because none of them had enough space (for me) for a background. So, I chose Blowing Bubbles by Lili of the Valley. I think he’s an adorable little elephant and this will make a great note card. 🙂

Copics Used:

Elephant: 0, C5, C3, C1, C00; R00
Flowers: BV01, BV04
Bubbles: B21, RV02, B41, YG03
Bush & ground: YG01, YG03, YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99
