Sending Hugs

Hello there.  Today's card features a combo of current and retired products from Pinkfresh Studio using the colors from this weeks Color Throwdown #648 challenge.

After stamping and die cutting the flowers and greenery from the (retired) Fleur 1 set, I colored with Copic markers. I attached the various florals to an oval piece cut with the smaller die from the Braided Oval Essentials set. The sentiment was stamped using the Perfect Sentiments set and cut with the matching die. For the background I spot blended Fresh Pear ink onto the card front using the Simple Plaid Stencil. The oval piece was attached using a layer of craft foam.

Copics: Flowers-YR00, YR01, YR02, YR04, V01, V12, V15, V17, RV11, R81, R83, R85; Greenery-YG00, YG03

Happy Summer

Hello there. It's been three weeks since I have posted here on my blog. I don't know where the time goes but I really have been quite busy. I hope to get back into a creative groove soon as I am missing my craft table.

I have two projects to share with you today featuring some of the new The Cat's Pajamas digital stamps and cutables.

Using Photoshop Elements, I combined the gnome and the sentiment from the Bee Happy, Bee Gnome Digi stamp, then printed onto Copic friendly cardstock. I then cut with a octagon shaped die and colored with Copic markers. I created the background by using my Silhouette machine to cut the HoneyComb Coverplate Cutables from harvest gold cardstock, then cut for a bottom border only. I then added a strip of patterned paper at the top of the honeycomb border for added color. The image piece was attached using a layer of craft foam and a few enamel dots finished it up.

For my second card I used some old nestabilities to die cut the round card base from patterned paper and cardstock, then used a stencil and spring rain ink for the cloud filled background. I used my Silhouette machine to cut the Happy Sun from cardstock and patterned paper and the sunshades from the Vintage Beach Cutable from patterned paper. The shades were attached to the sun with foam dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped onto the clouds and I added a few sequins for a bit of sparkle.

A Fintastic Birthday

 I doubled dipped on challenges with today's clean and layered card featuring some patriotic colors.

I stamped images from the Catherine Pooler Refuse to Sink and Hook, Linker and Sinker stamp sets using vermillion, nautical blue and blueberry sky ink, then cut out using the matching dies. For the background panel I used a stitched rectangle die to cut from white linen cardstock then created the die cut with The Cat's Pajamas Balloon Frame set (which is 50% off right now), then backed with patterned paper. After stamping the fin and sentiment I attached all the stamped pieces with a foam dimensional.

Products: Catherine Pooler stamps and dies, Doodlebug dp, PTI cs, The Cat's Pajamas die, Memento, Ranger Archival, Memento and PTI ink

I used the colors from The Paper Players Tic Tac Toe challenge and theme and theme/colors/card style from The Card Concept #156. 

Thank you for stopping by.
