I created this card for the Hero Arts Flickr Group‘s Scramble #119. We have 90 minutes to create a card for a suggested theme. The theme this time was black, white, grey and a pop of color. I embossed the background stamp with detail black embossing powder. I then stamped and colored the cupcake with Copics and cut it out. I decided to use grey cardstock for the card base and popped a little bit of color in the corners to bring out the pale red of the heart. I heat embossed the sentiment on a circle of dark grey cardstock and popped up the cupcake on top of it. Thanks for stopping by!
- Stamps – Simon Says Stamp – “Happy & Smile” set and “Baby Party Animals” set
- Stencil – Simon Says Stamp – “Grid”
- Ranger Distress Inks: Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Crushed Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon, and Seedless Preserves

For the background, I applied each of the Distress Inks, one at a time, with a foam applicator through the grid stencil. I used a linear application to give it a rainbow look. I colored the animals with Copic markers. I created this card for the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #22, which is to create a card using the colors of the rainbow. Thanks for visiting today.

- Enamel Dots – Bella Blvd. “Punch”
- Cardstock – Paper Accents
This is a Spring-y Happy card. I tried something different by using a colored embossing powder as an outline for the Copic coloring I did. I had to be careful, because since Copic ink is alcohol based, the color from the embossing wanted to mix in which could cause some muddy colors. Watercolor would have been a smarter route to take. But I made it work! I used the new Hero Arts set for the sentiment die cut and stamp, which I really like a lot! Anyhoo, thanks for stopping by.

For this card I created a watercolor background and stamped over it with silhouette-style floral stamps. I used stamps from several different stamp sets to put this altogether. I always find mixing-up stamp sets to be fun. The current challenge (Challenge #16) for the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Group is to use watercoloring on your card or project. Here you’ve got my entry. Thanks for visiting.
- Stamps – The Cat’s Pajamas “Smells Like Cake”
- Dies – The Cat’s Pajamas “Fancy Flip Cut Ups”
- Patterned paper – Hampton Art Ki Memories “Metro Garden”
- Patterned cardstock – BoBunny
- Solid cardstock – Bazzill
I had not created a flip card like this before. I used The Cat’s Pajamas dies to make it, which made it a simpler process (they also have a video on their site with a demo on how to make a flip card with this die set). The penguins are on the outside of the card and when you flip that portion, you can see the sentiment (below). I colored the penguins with Copic markers. We gave this to my brother-in-law for his birthday. Thanks for stopping by today.

I made this card for the February Mid-month Challenge over at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps. The challenge is to make cards for kids, which is my absolute favorite type of card to make for OWH! This is a simple, colorful card featuring the Doodlebug paper with lots of kid-friendly characters. I was also inspired by the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches: #175. I like the simplicity of the sketch since the paper is so visually dominant. Thanks for visiting today.
- Stamps – from The Cat’s Pajamas “Hearts and Flowers,” “Flying By” and “Smells Like Cake” sets
- Patterned papers – My Mind’s Eye “Happy Day” 6 X 6″ paper pad
- Cardstock – Bazzill Bling
- Sequins – Doodlebug Designs
- Copic Markers
I created this birthday card with items from my stash, and I am entering it in two different challenges. First, I used Sketch #168 from Freshly Made Sketches; the inspiration is from The Cat’s Pajamas (TCP) TCPTUES281 Inspiration Challenge. I stamped the snail and sunflower TCP image and then masked it to stamp in the clouds from another TCP set. I colored the stamped images with Copic markers and then I layered the patterned papers to tie in the colors of the image. I used an orange card base for some contrast. I added the sequins for a little sparkle and to unify the color scheme. All in all, it is a pretty simple card. Thanks for visiting.
