Three Little Bears

Hello everybody! I enjoyed a hour of me-time making a card for the current MFT Sketch Challenge. This is this week's fun sketch:

And here is my take:

First, I inked a white cardstock panel with the Cloud Stencil and blue Distress Oxides and applied water droplets. Now I stamped the sentiment from Anything-but-Basic Birthday Wishes onto a strip of blue cardstock, heat-embossed it with white embossing powder and adhered it to the panel. After I had adhered the panel to my card base, I stamped the bears from BB Bitty Bears and the balloons from BB Sweet Birthday Wishes onto white cardstock, colored the images with Copics, fussy-cut all the elements and adhered them to the card.

These bears are just super cute, don't you agree? And I think this will fit the current SSS Wednesday Challenge Whatever the Weather, too.

Thank you for visiting today, happy weekend!

A Cute Robin

Happy Sunday! Today I made a card inspired by one of my favorite books (The Secret Garden) showing one of my favorite birds (robin) using my favorite stamps!

For the design, I chose this MFT Sketch:

And here is my take:

I inked the background with the Cloud Stencil and Distress Oxides, then I die-cut the Grassy Hills Die-namics and the Birch Trees Die-namics, colored these with Copics and adhered them. Now I die-cut a circle from the green cardstock panel and adhered it to the card.
Then I stamped the cute bird and the mushroom from SY Tweet Friends, colored them with Copics, fussy-cut the images and adhered the elements to the card with foam tape.
Finally, I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment from Party Animals onto a strip of orange cardstock and adhered it.

I love robins! Can't wait to watch them while working on my vegetable patches.

This cutie will be entered to the current SSS Wednesday Challenge: Create a Scene and the MFT Sketch Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Numbers Background

Hi there! Today I wanted to create a fun background with Distress Oxides and made a card for the current MFT The Birthday Project Challenge: You're How Old? and the SSS Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes. 

Here comes the result:

I started with a panel of white cardstock, masked off a rectangle and inked it with various Distress Oxide inks. Then I die-cut numbers from a scrap of paper and used the negatives as a stencil. Now I applied white pigment ink through the Card-Sized Confetti Stencil, removed the mask and adhered the panel to the card base. I stamped the cute bunny and the balloon from BB Somebunny onto white cardstock, colored it with Copics, fussy-cut everything and adhered the images.

Then I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment from LL Sweet Succulents onto a strip of purple cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it. Finally, I added tiny sequins.

Thank you for stopping by today! Hope to see you back soon :)
