Hello, Birthday Girl

Hey there!
How are you all doing?
Any summer vacation plans?

Well, I'm stopping by to share some cards with you...and the challenges I am playing along with.

My daughter needed a birthday card for a friend so I whipped one up using a sketch and a theme! I used a bunch of products from My Favorite Things, balloon dies, square zig-zag stitched die, pattern paper and glitter cardstock and sentiment from BB Beary Special Birthday.

The large rectangle stitched die is Lil'Inker Designs. The enamel dots and wood sentiment are Recollections. A little aqua twine finished it off.

Also adding to Simon Says Stamp


*********************************************************************************

Next card,
All stamps and dies are My Favorite Things, scalloped stitched square dies, BB You Gnome Me, and LJD Spring Wreath. I embossed the background using two square dies. The image was stamped using black ink from Memento and colored with Copic Markers. 

I used the color palette from MFT Color Challenge

I added some white accents with a gel pen and applied a layer of glossy accents to the flowers and berries. I added a shadow to the sentiment with a Copic and scattered some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I followed the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch

Thanks for peeking!

Love...is in the air

Hello there!
It's time to share the newest ColorQ palette with you...
Hope you will play along with us!
I used a few different stamps to achieve this composition. The hot air balloon and print sentiment is from The AlleyWay Stamps. The script 'love' and hearts are from Lawn Fawn. The clouds and scroll banner are from Sweet Stamp Shop.
I stamped all the images with black ink from Memento. The balloon was inked up with  Color Box ink in boysenberry, the hearts were inked up with orchid, the background was sponged with parchment. I colored the basket with Copics.
I added some white accents with a gel pen and scattered some orange and clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

You Make My Heart...

Hello again!
I'm joining in on the fun over at My Favorite Things blog...Camp Create!
Today I am combining two themes...Magnificent Masking and Coloring on Kraft




I stamped the lamb, MFT  Ewe are the Best, using black ink from Memento and colored him in with PrismaColor pencils. I masked the lamb and used a SSS stencil (heart) for the background. I layered two inks, a coat of white than magenta from Color Box. 
I masked the lamb again...minus the heart...than used a sponge to ink up the heart the same as the stencil. I than added a coat of Wink of Stella in clear.  The sentiment is from the set All Heart, MFT. The pink glitter cardstock is also MFT. I scattered some clear sequins from Pretty Pink posh.

I am also adding this to Simon Says Stamp...create a scene

Thanks for peeking!
