Party Animals

  • Stamps – Lawn Fawn – “Wild for You”
  • Dies –
    • Lawn Fawn – “Wild for You,” “Grassy Hillside Borders,” “Simple Gift Card Slots,” and “Lift the Flap”
    • Sizzix – Tim Holtz Alterations “Celebrate” (inside “Happy Birthday” sentiment)
    • Little B – “Rectangle”
  • Copic markers
  • Patterned paper – BoBunny – “Serendipity”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

If I’m going to play with cuteness, the Lawn Fawn animals are always at the top of my list! This new “Wild for You” set is no exception. I colored the stamped images with Copics and cut them out with the matching dies. I made sure they donned some party hats and crowns.

I cut the rectangle and then used the “Lift the Flap” die to hold the gift card that were placed in slots created by the slots die (inside shown in photo above). These dies worked as slick as a whistle. I used a portion of grass cut with the grass border die to ground the animals and adhered all of them to the card front. A great little package. Inside the card is the birthday greeting.

I’m posting this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Furry Friends and to the Mod Squad Birthday Bash Challenge.

Mixed Media Kitty Card

  • Stamps – Stampendous- Laurel Burch “Indigo Cats”
  • Dies – Stampendous- Laurel Burch “Indigo Cats”
  • Copic markers
  • Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals – Golden Sleigh Bells, Tibetan Poppy Teal, and Witch’s Potion Purple
  • Art Basics Light Texture Paste
  • Stencil – Stampendous – included in Laurel Burch “Indigo Cats” stamp set
  • Ranger – Dina Wakley Media Mica Spray – Lapis
  • Cardstock – Paper Accents

I began this card by coloring the stamped cat and butterflies with Copic markers and then die cut the images. I created the background by starting with clear gesso, and then applying the texture paste through the matching stencil.

I liked the idea of repeating the triangles in the background that are featured on the cat. I then sprinkled Magicals and sprayed with water and mica spray, spattering more Magicals to create the effect I was aiming for.

I continued to play, moving the color around, but finally left it alone and let it dry! I adhered the images and layered it onto matching cardstock.

I am posting this card to Craft Stamper Magazine’s May Anything Goes Stamping ChallengeHappy Little Stampers May Mixed Media Challenge is “Splats,” so I think this works! I’m also linking back to My Colorful Scoop’s Color May Inspiration Challenge. And one more time, Mom, Happy Birthday! Thanks for stopping by.

Above is a detail showing some of the texture and colors.


Hippity Happity Hoppity Easter

  • Stamps –
    • Whipper Snapper Designs “Cute Bunny Butt”
    • Printworks “Hoppity Easter”
  • Die – Little B “Labels”
  • Patterned paper – American Crafts “Lovely Bunny” (both sides)
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Brads – Making Memories – Sherbet Flower Brads

I colored this nice bunny image with Copic markers in bright colors. I layered the patterned papers onto a square card base and placed the sentiment at an angle. That accentuates the whimsical sentiment that I’ve had in my stash for years! I repeated the springy look by adding some flower brads to the edges, and yes I’ve had those from the days when we put brads on every card or paper project! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Easter!


An otterly happy birthday

  • Bling – EK Success – Sticko dimensional stickers

I’ve been meaning to make an otter card with this set for a while now. I brought it with us to the coast–how appropriate–and finally got it colored and put together! I colored the otter with Zig watercolor markers and the ribbon on the present with a metallic marker. It was fun to layer the different papers using the varying sizes of die-cut circles–almost like paper piecing. Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy Anniversary – Vintage Couple

  • Sentiment stamp – Altenew “Vintage Roses” set
  • Die – Spellbinders Nestabilities – “Labels Seventeen”
  • Die cuts – Tim Holtz Ideaology “Snippets” and “Paper Dolls”
  • Magicals – Lindy’s Stamp Gang – Cattail Copper Brown, Ponderosa Pines Olive, and Red Hot Poker Orange
  • Distress Oxide inks – Spiced Marmalade, Walnut Stain, Worn Lipstick
  • Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

I used two different backgrounds to create layers on this year’s anniversary card I made for my husband. One background was the Distress Oxide layer that provides some subtle color. The brightly colored, sparkly background which I created using Lindy’s Magicals powder was then die cut for the backdrop for the married couple. I combined the Tim Holtz die cuts and stamped a sentiment for a focal point, making this a perfect card for the Happy Little Stampers monthly challenge to create with dies. Thanks for visiting.

  • Stamps – Poppy Stamps “Penguin Be Mine”
  • Dies –
    • Poppy Stamps “Penguin Be Mine”
    • WPlus9 -“Stackers: Hearts”
  • Patterned paper – Authentique “Beloved” Collection – “Beloved Three” (both sides)
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Baker’s twine
  • Red metallic paper – Paper Accents

I know! Valentine’s Day is long past! I made this Valentine for my Mom, but just didn’t get it posted right away. This is a fabulous stamp and die set from Poppy (and I have a discerning eye when it comes to penguins!). I colored the penguin and accessories with Copic markers and used the coordinating die set to easily cut them out. The greeting was also from the Poppy set. The patterned papers are actually both side of the same sheet by Authentique. I have a bit of the red metallic paper I used for the heart peaking out from behind the patterned layer to tie things together. This card perfectly fits the theme for the current challenge at Poppy: Hearts Aflutter. Thanks for stopping by.
