Birthday Cake

Today I am playing along with My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge. I simplified this weeks sketch but am in love with what I came up with.

I do not often make cards without any stamped images filled with colouring. But when this die was release I needed it in my life, I love how this one turned out slightly wonkey and pretty pinks and yellow made me so happy creating this one!

I also have a super fun video of this one for you!

Gill Friends

Hey everyone. Can you believe it is almost the end of March, the snow is melting fast here! Spring is in the air, my son pulled out his bike and is impatiently waiting for me to make a trip to the city to get him a new skateboard. That is probably happening next weekend. I am pulling out bright vivid colours into my cardmaking, impatiently waiting for summer.

I am playing along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, this weeks theme is CUTE! I don’t spend a lot of time watching youtube videos lately, and yes I know I need to film some more. That is coming I have my ducks almost in a row again, I know I say that all the time. But I did watch Jennifer McGuire’s recent video about shadow box cards, I altered it a bit to create a dome card and still have a folding card in the back. But that was the basis of the card.

I pulled out the Gill Friends set from My Favorite Things. All links to products used in this card will be at the end of the blog post. I stamped and coloured all the fish in a no lines style, then fussy cut them out.

Creating the dome aquarium panel to lay on top of the wave stenciled background. I used a little fishing line to pop some of the fish up near the front. I am thrilled with how cute this card turned out. I may have to make a few more in this style!

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed my little project. Now to head to the basement and do some filming!

It’s Mice Time to Celebrate

Hey everyone! Today I am again playing along with My Favorite Things Card Challenges.

I pulled out the new It’s Mice Time to Celebrate set for this fun card. Hand drawing the balloon I stamped the mouse in Tea Dye Distress Ink. Then pulled out my Stoneground Paints and created a fun little scene into the balloon.

This sketch was super fun! I would have never thought of painting a simple little scene in a balloon without it. I can’t wait for the next one!

Mermazing

Hey everyone! Back again with another card to share today. It is the 18th day of the coloring challenge, and I have completed a card everyday so far this month! It has been super fun and challenging to make time to do this everyday! But I am loving it, and I can not wait to share a video at the end of this month showing all my creations this month!

Today I pulled out the Mermazing set from My Favorite Things. Links to all products and colours used will be linked at the bottom this blog post!

I coloured up the images with my copic markers, then did a little bit of ink blending in the background, stamping some of the solid fish from the Mermazing set with the same ink I blended into the background. A few splashes of water and some tiny white circles made with a pastel pencil finished off this card! I love it so much!!

My Favorite Things – Gill Friends

Hey all! Today I am sharing the card I made to play along with MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge #411.

I really had a ton of fun watercolouring this one. I have been asked lately how long it takes me to do a card like this, well this one took me about 5 hours to complete. I only work on one fish at a time, letting layers dry inbetween, etc. But when they are finished I really do love them!

If you go look at the sketch for this week, you will see the sentiment bar across the rectangle, I attempted this but it covered and took to much away from the fish, so I stamped it below the coloured panel.

This Pure Innocence image is ever so sweet with all her little packages, she needed to be the focus on a card for sure! I loved the embossing, inking and copic colourin all together.

I do have a complete process video for you all!

Thank you all so much for watching and checking out my blog!
Make sure you check out the MFT & Friends blog post to see what everyone else has made!
