Kindness

Happy Wednesday everyone!
It's Ceal, here to share the deets with you on how I made this card using some products from My Favorite Things that you can find at Drive by Crafts

I started with a white top folding note card and 2 pieces of watercolor paper, one cut down with a stitched die and the second to use for the images.   I stamped some of the floral images from the Doodle Blossoms set on the watercolor paper, colored them using Tombow markers and the cut them out using the Doodle Blossom Dienamics, next I used the Kindness Dienamic and cut out the word kindness also with watercolor paper and colored it with Tombow markers as well.  For the greeting I used the Kind Words stamp set and stamped it underneath the floral images, to finish the card I placed the flowers in the center of the stitched panel popping them up with foam tape and to finish the card I placed the word Kindness across the flowers.

Happy Birthday THREE Ways

Good morning, Lisa here today sharing one card three ways using Waffle Flower Crafts Enveloper Little Birdie  and My Favorite Things BB Otterly Love You

First up is a masculine Birthday card. 
On all three cards I created the striped border using the two lines image in the Waffle Flowers Enveloper Little Birdie Stamp Set.  I cut a 1 1/4" wide strip of white cardstock and length either 4 1/4 or 5 1/2.  Then I stamped the lines using my MISTI moving them down to create the stripes.  I colored them in with the broad end of Copic markers. On this card I used Copics C00, C0, C1, C3, C5, C7. 
 I cut little strips of colored paper and masked off the "Have an OTTERLY great Birthday" to get just the birthday on ALL three cards. 
Of course, I had to have some rainbow fun.  
The Copics I used for my border are R24, RV25, YR04, Y17, YG21, BG01, V01. 
I have a square card here 4 1/4 x 4 1/4. 
The White panel is 3 1/2" so the sentiment would go just end to end with a 3 5/8" black panel behind for a mat on the sides. 
 My border, I colored with Copics YR23, YR31, Y17, Y21. 
I heat embossed my birthday sentiment on black and stapled it to the card front. My two white panels are 3 3/4 x 5 1/2 and 3 1/2 x 5 1/2.

Beary Birthday Surprise


Yay, it's Friday...certainly worth celebrating!  Today I'm sharing a card created with My Favorite Things BB Beary Special Birthday stamps and dies!
 
 

There's so many fun images to this set, but my favorite is the precious little bear sticking his head out of the gift box.  I used several paper layers (including a pretty one from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Petite paper pad) to add dimension and lots of pretty Drive By Craft Sherbet sequins for some festive fun!

Over The Moon


Hello everyone, it's Ceal here to share a card using a new set from My Favorite Things, Space Explorer
To make this card I started with a black top folding A2 card base. I created a galaxy background using distress inks water and white acrylic paint. (I had taken photos and deleted them by accident so I will try to explain the steps) 

The first step to make the galaxy background is to blend different color distress inks randomly to cover the entire paper. I used Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, Spiced Marmalade, Peacock Feathers and Squeezed Lemonade. Next I blended Black Soot over the entire piece covering the colors but allowing them to be seen through the black ink. Next I splattered water across the panel achieving the look of meteors in space, the next step is to splatter white acrylic paint to look like tiny stars, I also used a white gel pen to add a few more stars. 
After I finished the background and allowed it to dry I used the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges 2 from My Favorite Things to create the wonky edge. 
To color the the little astronaut and the moon I used Copic markers and added them to the the background and then popped it up using foam tape. To finish the card I stamped the greeting with Versamark in and embossed it with white embossing powder.

Otterly Adorable Tag

Hi, Lisa here today sharing an OTTERLY adorable tag for someone you love to put in their lunch, add to a gift or put on the mirror.  
 I first cut out my tag base using SugarCut-Beautiful Bauble from My Mind's Eye Hello Gorgeous paper pad (just happens to be on sale).  
 Then I cut the center stitched circle from white cardstock using SugarCut - Beautiful Bauble.  I used the Ranger Mini Ink Blender tool and sponged on Spun Sugar then Worn Lipstick Distress Inks on top. 
I heat embossed the sentiment and stamped this cute otter using BB Otterly Love You Stamp Set.  Then I used the matching BB Otterly Love You Die-namics to cut him out.  I colored and popped him up with foam tape then embellished with sequins.
