Missed a Teenagers Birthday

This card fits two challenges this week. The sketch is from Cute Card Thursday and the theme follows the Charisma Cardz theme of Teenage Birthday. I used the Party Malkin Stamp and the I "Moosed" It stamp from Stamp Shoppe Creations. The image was colored with Copics. The light blue, green and brown for the sweater was all colored with the New Copic Colors. The Background paper is by Bo Bunny and the embossed background is from Cuttlebug. The "nailheads" were made with the Viva Decor Pearl Pens, then I tapped the card on the table several times for the pearl to drop and flatten. Just another look!! So now I have a card for a teenaged boy!

Dutch Iris Frame

All the stamps used in this card are new from Heartfelt Creations. The Iris Frame and single Iris are colored with the new Copic Colors V20 and V25. The frame is cut out with the Petite Classic Oval from Nestabilities. The paper behind the frame is embossed with the Tim Holtz swirl embossing folder. Then I cut out the Iris with the matching die from Spellbinders and popped up in the center of the oval. The Swirls were cut out with the die from Heartfelt Creations. The Sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations. Then cut out with the Label 5 Nestabilities and color sponged over the center before removing the spellbinder. The Label is then popped up below the Iris. Come into The Stamp Shoppe and see other samples with this stamp set!

Midnight Madness Sketch #96

Here's Wally Walrus from Stamp Shoppe Creations, colored with Copic markers and fitting right in with this weeks MMSC96. I used decorator paper from My Mind's Eye again. The edges of the purple paisley paper has some faux stitches and distressing. I tied some seam binding ribbon to the card along with some Prima Flowers and swirls by Sizzix. Thanks for looking!

Mojo Monday #183

Here's my take on the Mojo Monday sketch challenge for this week. I used the Greta Giraffe form Stamp Shoppe Creations. She's colored with Copic Markers. The background is using the Houndstooth Cuttlebug folder. The Layered piece behind Greta is faux stitched with the ScorBuddy and ScorBug. The fancy corner is cut with the Sizzix die cut. The Palm fronds are cut out of the decorator paper from My Mind's Eye. Have a good day!

Easter is coming... I smell Chocolate? Here I used my chocolate bunny, but instead of coloring him the traditional way, I used a negative mask and sponged the bunny with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and the sponge applicator. I used a little pink ink in the ears. Then I cut out the bunny with the oval Nestabilities and leaving the stencil on, I sponged more ink on the inside of the oval. I added more nesties for layers. Papers are from Bo Bunny. Stamps from Stamp Shoppe Creations
