Fun in the Sun

Hello everyone!

I am so jealous this little sweetheart is on a tropical beach soaking up the sun. How relaxing!!

This little cutie is from All Dressed Up Stamps and is only part of the digital image called Beach Time. I masked off the snack hut as I wanted it to be just a beach scene.

I printed this little sweetheart on X-Press It Blending Card and then colored her with the following Copic Markers.

Just poppin’ up to say hello

Hello my froggy friends!

This sweet image from Digi Doodle Studios is part of the Pond Life Pairables Digi Stamp Set.  The paper is from the digital set called On the Pond.

I absolutely love this adorable digi stamp set!  I had the image of a little boy stuffing frogs in his pockets and thought this card design would be perfect.

just poppin up to say hello

I printed these adorable little frogs on X-Press It Blending Card and colored them with the following Copic Markers.

~Copics~
Frog:  YG97, YG95, YG93, YG91, YG03, YG01, YG00, YG0000, E84
Eyes:  BV20, BG70, B000, Colorless Blender

just poppin up to say hello2

I started with an idea I found on Pinterest, but couldn’t find an SVG file that was quite what I was looking for.  I have the mindset…if there is a will, there is a way.  So…I opened up my Silhouette software and got to work creating.  I however, wasn’t prepared for the hours involved since this is the first file I created…lol

The card base is A2 size – top folding.

just poppin up to say hello1

I love, love, love the digi paper, but it was a little too dark for the frogs to stand out.  To make the paper lighter I brought it into Photoshop and changed the opacity to 60%.  This leaves all the colors the same, but just lightens it up.
