U Rock!

Hi there.  Today, I made this cute card with this sweet girl from CC Designs called Viking Nancy.  I stamped and heat embossed the image on Bristol paper and colored her in with my Zigs.  I fussy cut her out, which was really easy to do.  I used Jaded Blossom stitched rectangle from the Card Mat Dies and for my bottom layered rectangle I used Hero Arts Infinity rectangles.  The polka dot pattern paper came from my stash and I used Distress oxide ink and regular distress ink in Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo.  I die cut a CC Designs Half Rectangle for the girl to be grounded on.  I used the woodgrain paper from Lawn Fawn and distressed it a little with matching ink.  I inked up a sentiment from Altenew that has been in my stash forever and cut it and popped it up on foam tape along with the girl.  Lastly, I used some matching sequins and placed my panels on a A2 top folding card base.  That finishes my card for today, thank you for stopping by.

Happy Fall Y’all

Hi there.  It’s not Fall yet, but it is coming.  I love Fall, my favorite Season for sure. I made this card for The Greeting Farm Fresh Sketch Challenge.  I used this sweet girl image called Up Up Bean.  I stamped and heat embossed the image, then I colored her with my Copic Markers.  I also paper pieced her hat from some paper in my stash.  I chose to use Rectangles form Hero Arts Infinity die set.  I made my own striped background with Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide ink using skinny washi tape.  I used a few water droplets and wiped away the excess with a paper towel.  The smaller rectangle I used Cracked Pistachio distress Oxide and did the same with the water droplets.  I chose to make a shaker, so I used Vintage Photo Distress Oxide to color the frame.  The dies I used for my shaker are MFT’s Die-namics Stitched Dome Stax.  I put my shaker card together onto a A2 top folding card base.  I popped my girl up with foam tape and Stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder onto a tag label from Jaded Blossoms Mini Tag Dies 2.  I finished my card with some Fall colored sequins, orange Nuvo drops, and Ranger Stickles.  I hope you like my card for today, thank you for stopping by.

It’s called Christmas Like No Otter.  I stamped and heat embossed the images, and colored with my Copic Markers.  I also fussy cut them out which was pretty easy.  I used these Scalloped Stitched Rectangle Dies from My Creative Time for my Panels. My pattern scalloped paper came from Doodlebug-Here Comes Santa Claus.  I used Border Dies from Jaded Blossom for my water.  I colored my sky and water with Faded Jean and salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink.  I glued everything down with my ATG gun and Heat embossed the sentiment with Stampendous Detail Silver Embossing Powder.  I put my panels onto a natural colored A2 Top Folding Card Base.  I added glitter with my glitter pen and white accents with my gelly roll pen.  Well that finishes my card for today, I hope you like it.  I know I will be making a lot more of these, I better start now!!!  Thank you for stopping by!!

Gorjuss Hatter Girl

Hi there.  Today, I was gifted this cute Gorjuss Hatter Girl Stamp.  Isn’t she cute?  I stamped and heat embossed her on a oval die cut by My Creative Time.  These dies are great because they have matching scallop dies in the set.  I colored the girl with my Clean Color Real Brush markers.(ZIGS)  I tried to copy the colors that are shown on the image, I am so happy with the way it turned out.  I colored the scallop also with my ZIGS. I also die cut a rectangle from Hero Arts Infinity dies.  I glued everything with my ATG gun onto a A2 natural colored top folding card base.  I added some white gel accents with my white gelly roll pen and some Ranger Stickles on the flowers and on the panel.  That finishes my card for today, thank you so much for stopping by.
