A Cute She-Dog

Hi everybody! A few days ago, I was playing with my Simon Says Stamp goodies and thought that the dog from the YOU ARE PAWESOME set would make a cute she-dog. So I dressed her up a bit and created this card:


The background of my card was created with the Simon Says Stamp exclusive stencil EXTRA LARGE DOTS, an ink blending tool and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I gently applied ink in circular motions, trying to achieve a gradient look. Then I stamped the sentiment to the bottom of my card. The dog is stamped onto cardstock and colored with Copic markers, then I cut her out and adhered her with foam tape (I recommend buying the set with the matching dies, it would have made this a lot of easier!). To dress her up, I gave her a bow that I die-cut from cardstock using the little bow from this set. The card was finished off with some clear little sequins. I hope you like it!

Thanks for visiting!

Color Coordinates

Here I am, back with a card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "Color Coordinates". I've been busy creating projects I can't show yet, although you might get a sneak on Instagram :o)
However, today I took a break and created this card.

These colors scream for a Halloween card, but I wanted to play with my Super Duo set and made this one:


I don't think I'll ever get enough of this set. The supergirl is colored with Copics, the background behind the negative die-cut is, too. I hope you like it!

Playing With My Stamps

A very happy day to you from sunny Germany! I have another Mama Elephant card to share. I've been enjoying playing with my new stamps, this time it was the set Carnival Cupcakes. I don't think I'll ever get enough of the cute images! Here is the card:


I created this watercolor wash with Tombow markers and water. The bear and the cupcake were colored with Copics. To finish the card off, I die-cut sequins from another piece of watercolored paper and combined them with real sequins. This card will be entered to the Mama Elephant and me challenge "Anything Goes" and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "Watercolors".


Thanks for visiting!
