Friday February 15, 2019

Welcome back to reminder of our challenge at
Creative with Stamps.. Our theme .. Love

 
This is my reminder card for the design team challenge.. Another fun time playing in my craft room I wanted to give my neglected colored pencils love. I created this fun card. I used Taylored Expressions image. I stamped the image with Stampin up brown ink and then used Prisma colored pencils to color the image. I used My favorite things circle die to cut the image out. I adhered this to my card base then used some Stampin up leaves and frame die to fill in the area under the image. The sentiment is from Tech. Tuesday.

I wanted to make a bright cheerful spring feeling card and work on using my zig markers. So this is what I came up with..
I am using Technique Tuesday flower image. They have awesome stamps. I belong to the stamp of the month. Its always exciting seeing what will come. For this card I stamped on Bristol paper then using zig markers I colored in the image and background.  I used Lil inker stitch die to cut out and added this to a piece of scrap pink. I tied a ribbon around the base and added the hello die from Simon says I cut it out 4 times to give it some bulk.  I like the white highlight behind the gray. I went over the flower and hello with Spectrum noir sparkle pen

Friday February 1, 2019
 
Welcome back for another challenge at Creative with Stamps 
Our theme for the month is LOVE
 

 
I love this fun layout.. I started by taking Bristol paper and adding green and blue Ranger ink for the ground and sky.. I then dug through my scraps and found this blue dp and taking My favorite things frame die I cut this out then I took a MFT circle die and cut the background and added the frame to it. I also found this fun paper for clouds so taking Taylored Expressions dies I cut two and using foam dots added them to the scene. 
I stamped the raccoons and flowers and colored them with copics. I heat embossed the sentiment and then I added the circle and sentiment to the card base. I foam dotted the raccoons and added them and then adhered the flowers. I used a green copic to add a little line under the flowers so they didn't look lie they were in space.. I added some wink of stella to the girl shirt and bow.. I then added Taylored Expressions tiny tiny gems to the flower center and one to her bow.. I love this fun card.

Well today Bugaboo has a Free Friday image.
Check out the design teams creations using the free image over at Catch the bug.
 
 
This is the fun Free Friday image.. I (heart) U bear.  I colored the image with copics and then used My favorite thing stitch die. I found a pretty pink card stock so ran it through an embossing folder. I then used Tech. Tues string of hearts dies and added them to the card. I went over the hearts with Wink of Stella. Perfect and just in time for Valentines.
