Every little thing...

Hello!  Today's Maskerade class at OnlineCardClasses looked at liquid masking. I stamped the Large Flower Background by Hero Arts and used my liquid frisket to mask off the flowers and stems. Then I watercolored with distress inks. I used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More dies and the Stitched Oval Dies {both by MyCreativeTime} to make my shaker. I white heat embossed the Every Little Thing greeting by MyCreativeTime. I filled the shaker with sequins and added wink of stella to the flowers and stems.

Hello froggies

Hiya! Today is the start of the Maskerade class at OnlineCardClasses. It's super fun, and all about masking. I used the Happy Lil' Frogs and Happy Lil' Bigger Frogs by PeachyKeenStamps to make my snugglie froggies. I stamped the little one first, masked it off, and stamped the big one over top. I used my Copics to color the scene. The greeting is from the Into The Woods set by LawnFawn. I used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More dies by MyCreativeTime to cut out the panel.

MCT Fave Die of the Month

Hello! It's Fave Die Of The Month day again at MyCreativeTime. This month we are featuring the Stitched Message Bubbles Dies. I cut the bubble out of white cardstock, and colored it with my Copics to match my bird. I stamped the bird from the Tweet Me set and colored him with my Copics. I used the Tweet Me Dies to cut out the bird and the branch, which I also colored with Copics. Here's a TIP for using the coordinating dies to cut out images....I use the die to cut out a scrap piece of cardstock, and then I line up the negative space over the image and pop the die in the negative. I use some washi tape to hold it in place while I run it through my machine. I do this because off kilter/uneven images really bum me out. :) I finished the card off with some wink of stella, sequins, and glossy accents. 

Pop over to MyCreativeTime to see more creations!

Got fries to go with that shake? and a SALE

Hello! I had so much fun coloring this adorable container of fries! And that sentiment??? Gah, so fun! The fries and the greeting are from the Spring Loaded set by PeachyKeenStamps. This set is so fun, and full of great stamps to use with super fun interactive cards. The Spring Loaded set comes with a super cute face, but I used a face from the Sweet On You Face Assortment. I thought she looked a little "cheeky" to go along with the greeting. :) I stamped the card base with the Picnic Tablecloth Background by PeachyKeenStamps. OH and I put the fries on a WOBBLE so they shake! 

BTW... My hubs came down and saw these fries right when I finished coloring them...he grabbed the keys and went to Mickey D's to get fries! Pavlovian? ;)

Hello! I hope you're having a relaxing Sunday. I had some fun playing with my Copics on this ADORABLE Happy Go Lucky elephant by PeachyKeenStamps. Is she not the cutest?! I used N grays to color her...and I couldn't resist giving her hot pink nails! I colored the sky with tumbled glass distress ink, and cracked pistachio distress ink for the grass. I used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More dies and the Bunch Of  Fun Circles dies by MyCreativeTime. The greeting is from Ella and friends by MamaElephant. I finished it off with sequins. 

Update...The Happy Go Lucky "physical" stamp I used for my card has sold out, however, you can get it in Digi form! Also, in digi form, it comes with 2 adorable elephant images! Click HERE for the digi Happy Go Lucky Elephants. :)

I stamped the background with the Circus Polka Dot background by PeachyKeenStamps. The greeting is from the Elephant Parade set by PeachyKeenStamps

For a friend like gnome one else

Hello! I made a card to play along in the current MyFavoriteThings Challenge. The challenge is to follow the above sketch. Here is my take on it...
I used the You Gnome Me set by MyFavoriteThings. I made my panel with the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies and the Bunch Of Fun Circles Dies by MyCreativeTime. I traced the circles onto another piece of cardstock so I could stamp my cute little gnomes. I used my Copic markers to color the gnomes. The greeting is also from the You Gnome Me set by MyFavoriteThings. I just adore those little guys! :) 

I hope you're having a wonderful week! I am expecting some fun crafty deliveries soon...I may have taken a flying leap onto the foiling bandwagon. ;)
