Pretty in Pink & Ready to Drink!

Hello my friends!

I am back today to share a fun Flamingo themed mini slimline card with you. These seriously adorable Flamingo’s are from Crafty Meraki and are part of the clear stamp set called Flocking Fabulous.

We are having an Instagram Hop today and would love for you to join us. Details below.

I started my card with a card base of 6-3/8″ x 3-5/8″. Next using the 3 Room Studio Mini Slimline die, I cut one from blue dotted paper and three from white card stock to give some depth for the shaker element. I used tulle for the shaker windows to give the card a softer feel, sandwiching it between the blue and one white die cut. The remaining two were glued together and attached to the card base. I then added the white stitched center pieces to the card, added bling confetti, and adhered the top section to the bottom piece with foam tape.

The fabulously adorable Flamingo’s were stamped on Neenah 80# Solar White paper with Inkon3 Fadeout No Line Ink, and then colored with Prismacolor pencils. I fussy cut the images out and attached them to the front of the card using liquid glue.

Hello friends!

Woot Woot!! I can finally share some exciting news…I have joined up with all the talented ladies at Crafty Meraki and will be designing beside them.

My first card as a design team member was created with the super adorable stamp set called Mertini on the Rocks, and the Bubble Mania Mini Slimline Die. Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could transform ourselves into a mermaid for the day and zoom through the water to look at all the gorgeous coral and aquatic life. That’s not asking for too much is it?

These little cuties were stamped on X-Press It Blending Card with Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored with the following Markers.

Plant: YG17, YG03, YG01
Coral: R35, YR18, YR16, YR14, Y06

If you follow my blog, you know I love layers. To achieve a layered look, I started my card with a card base of 6-3/8″ x 3-5/8″. Next I die cut the Bubble Mania Mini Slimline Die out of white paper, and glued it down to the pre-printed water look paper. This piece was then glued to a 6-1/2″ x 3-3/4″ piece of white paper, and finally glued to the card base. All of the elements were also attached with liquid glue or double sided foam tape. The sentiment is included in the Mertini on the Rocks Clear Stamp Set.

Seas the day

Hello friends!

A couple weeks ago I went to the shores of Lake Superior with my cousin and did this exact same thing…took my shoes off and walked in the water. It felt so good to simply relax and soak in the sounds of the waves.

Today I am sharing this super sweet image called ‘Ship Ahoy‘ from All Dressed Up Stamps. I really love this image!

I printed this adorable image on X-Press It Blending Card and colored it with the following markers.

~Copics~

Clouds: C3, White Colored Pencil
Sand: E31, E43, E42, E40, E30, E50

I drew the island with the palm trees in by hand. I just picked a starting point and started sketching them in with the lightest color markers for that area. The dies are from Memory Box and Gummiapan.

Let’s go swimming

Hello everyone!

If you follow my blog you probably have figured out that you rarely see boy theme card amongst my posts…even though I will soon have 5 grandsons! My favorite color is pink, which doesn’t work too well on boy things.

With that being said, I was assigned this cute little boy called ‘Duck Swim‘ to work with for my new release project for All Dressed Up Stamps. While scrolling through Facebook I saw a card designed by the very talented Maartje Kraaijenhagen and thought maybe I could cross my fingers and toes and hope that I could color something similar…lol. I asked her if she would mind if I used her design of course…and this is what I came up with.

I am SO proud of myself that I was able to achieve what I had in mind!!

I printed this adorable little one on X-Press It Blending Card and colored him with the following markers.

~Copics~
Skin: E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30, R00
Hair: E59, E57, E55, E53

Sky: Y00, Y000, YR31, YR30, YR000, RV000, R0000, BG01, B91, B0000, BG0000

I thought about adding a sentiment, but couldn’t bring myself to cover anything up!

Just look at that adorable little face! He’s just needs a little friend to go swimming with him…

Hi friends!

We all have those certain people in our lives that will be a forever friend no matter what. I hold those special loved ones dear to my heart.

My DT project today features an adorable image from All Dressed Up Stamps called Country Girl. How sweet is she?

I printed this little cutie on Neenah Solar White 80lb paper and colored her with the following colored pencils.

I altered the image a little bit so I had room to fit her in the die cut shape and had room to add the sentiment. I also changed the opacity of the image so the lines were lighter.

The dies are from La-La Land Crafts and Cheery Lynn.
