JUST WANTED TO SAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY (1)

I just love these little bugs. I made another birthday card with the new A Bug Deal stamp set from Lawn Fawn.


For the backgrounds I used a piece of Spiffy Speckles paper, which I ink blended with Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink. Only the top. I die cut a Simple Stitched Hillside Border from Cilantro cardstock and ink blended it with Lucky Clover Oxide Ink. I stamped the sentiment onto the hill.


I stamped the images and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Branches: E53 - E55
Leaves + grasshopper: YG13 - G07
Caterpillar: R35 - R39/ Y15 - Y17/ YG41 0 G02
Ladybug: R35 - R39/ W3 - W5
Woodlouse: W3 - W5/ E41 - E43
Worm: E00 - E11 - E04
Firefly: Y15 - Y17/ YG41 - G02
Sand: E74 - E79


I die cut the images with my Cuttlebug and assembled the card. I added highlights, dots and stripes to my images using a white gelly roll pen.


This is, so far, my favorite set of this release. Can't wait to make more cards with these adorable bugs.

SMILE, SHAKE YOUR PALM PALMS (1)

I made an encouragement card using the Color Layering Palm Trees stamp set from Hero Arts.


I took a piece of No. 2 Pencil cardstock and stamped and heat embossed the palm tree onto it, with Gold embossing powder from Ranger.

After all the heat embossing, I ink blended the edges of the panel, with Spiced Marmalade Oxide Ink. This gives the panel more depth.


I die cut the word 'smile', using the Words for Friends die set from My Favorite Things. I did this from Raspberry cardstock and I ink blended the letters with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink. The rest of the sentiment was stamped onto a strip of Vanilla Malt cardstock and that same gold embossing powder.


As a finishing touch I added some Red Berry Nuvo Crystal Drops. I added the panel onto a Raspberry cardbase, setting it a bit to the right so a small strip appears.

I LIKE YOU MORE THAN NAPS (2)

For this friendship card I combined two companies. I used the I Like Naps stamp set and Open Me stamp set from Lawn Fawn and the Jungle Frame die set from Hero Arts.


The background I ink blended with Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick Oxide Inks. The Jungle Frame was die cut twice, from two different colors in the Spiffy Speckles paperpad.


I stamped the images and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Sloth: E00 - E11 - E04/ W2 - W5/ E71 - E74 - E79
Birds: R32 - R35/ Y15 - Y17
Branch: E53 - E55 - E57
Sign: E00 - E11 - E04


I fussy cut or die cut the images and assembled the card. I stamped the sentiment onto the sign and added some highlights and dots to the images with a white gelly roll pen.

I AM DEEPLY IN LOVE WITH YOU (1)

For this love themed card, I used several Lawn Fawn stamp sets and dies for this underwater scene.


For the background I used Cracked Pistacio and Salty Ocean Oxide Inks. I added some Just Stitching Hearts to the background. For the hill, I used Kraft cardstock and the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment onto this with Lawn Fawn white embossing powder.


I stamped the images. I used images from Critters in the Arctic, Mermaid for You, Fintastic Friends and You are Sublime. I colored everything with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Narwhal: W0 - W2 - W3 - W5/ E00 - E11 - E04

Underwater scenes are some of my favorite type of scenes to create with stamps and dies.
