It's Your Day ENJOY!

Hey Stampers!

I created this card for my brother's upcoming birthday this week using Bob Hooked a Big One and the sentiment It’s Your Day ENJOY
used Kraft paper as the base of my card size 6×6 and a few upcoming decorative papers from Buncha Scraps Father's Day Collection for this project.
Bob Hooked a Big One image was painted with watercolors and Prismacolors and cut out. I dot stitched around his frame.

I punched a few flags using EK Success Mini Punch Set  and twine to make the pennant.
I also punched out a mini envelope and slipped a stamped birthday message inside and added a some YNS Gumdrops that I got fromOne Crazy Stamper, and twine to finish off the card.
There it is. It’s Your Day ENJOY!! This one is for my brother.

Julie's Dream

Howdy! 

Today I am sharing with you a card I made using the brand new "Julie's Dream" stamp that was just released May1st! Isn't this little fairy just the cutest thing ever?! I know just the special little girl that will get this card for her birthday!


I chose paper from the Simple Stories Enchanted Collection. It is the perfect paper for a little girl or these fairies! Since my "special someone" loves pinks and purple's, those were the colours I went with for this card! The design is a fairly simple one using a stitched rectangle die. Embellishments are some flower sequins with a die cut border and two corners. Of course I had to add glitter to the wings, and all of the hearts.


The inside reflects some of the outside details. The sentiment is from the new "Sentiment Set #2"  and goes perfectly with the fairy themed stamp release.


Copics used: 
Skin E00, E11, R20, RV04
Hair: E41, E43, E44, E47
Wings and hearts: V20, V22, V25, R81, R93
Skirt and leaves: G20, G21, G24
Flower middle: YR000, YR01, YR02
Flower petals: Y21, Y23, YR31
Outline around image: B000

Hello High Hopes Fans!

I am using one of the new images from the Fairies & Adventurers release for my card today.



I used my new Chameleon Markers to color this image.
I am still getting used to them but am really enjoying playing!
For this image I used BG4-OR4-NU1-BR5-BL3-NU3-OL3-CG8-PK3...yep...just 9 markers to color the whole image!
I created the clouds by sponging Adirondack Aqua dye ink using a scallop edge oval panel as a mask.


The sentiment is from the new Sentiment Set #1.
I stamped it with Memento Tangelo Dye ink.
The fish brad is from eyeletoutlet.com


The new release is...

Lisa



This is Julie's Smile (S522), along with the sentiment from Sentiment Set #2 (U501).  These fairies are soooo adorable and fun to colour!!!  
 
I coloured Julie with Copic Markers (E01, E11, E77, E79, 100, RV23, RV25, RV04, RV02, C3, YG23, and YG25). Some pink and clear glitter-Wink of Stella pens were added to Julie's wings, socks, and butterfly to make her sparkle. The die cut is from Spellbinders called Classic Large Squares.  A pink ink pad was used to sponge around the edge of this die cut.  Prima Flowers with brown mini brads were added in the corners of this card to finish it off.  The designer paper is from BoBunny - Forever Young Collection 6x6 Paper Pad.
 
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
