We Make the Perfect Pair

Hello there!!!
Happy Wednesday!!!
Stopping by to share a card I created using a few challenges...
I started off with the color palette from My Favorite Things

and I also followed the MFT sketch from last week but I am too late in uploading 😒
My Favorite Things products I used are Snuggle Bunnies stamps and dies, All Heart stamp set ( tiny hearts) but I think it is retired, Stitched Banner Alphabet Dies, and Stitched Mini Scallop Circle Stax Dies.

I used several distress oxide inks in shades spiced marmalde, peeled paint, picked raspberry, and broken china. All cardstock is MFT smooth white.  I added a few splashes of water and some splatters of white paint.

I stamped the images with Memento black ink and colored them with Copic Markers in shades W00, W0, W1, E42, RV04, RV04, BG07, BG09, YG17, YG25.

I am also adding this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Thanks for peeking!!!!

Sending Happy Thoughts

Hello there!!!!
I'm stopping by today to share a card with you I created for the Lawn Fawnatics Inspiration Board
There are some pretty amazing cards in the link up...you should stop by for a peek!
Here is my take on the photo...
I used a few Lawn Fawn products, String of Lights dies, Love You a Latte dies (heart only), and   Happy Happy Happy stamp set. I inked up the light bulbs with candied apple distress oxide ink than die cut. I die cut the mini heart and added a white accent with a gel pen. The bottom part of the bulb was cut with glitter paper from Recollections. I stamped the sentiment with Archival black ink.
I inked up the background with worn lipstick distress oxide ink and My Favorite Things Radiating Rays Stencil, used Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches die to cut the panel. 

Also adding this to Tic Tac Toe Challenge...sparkle /love /free

Simon Says Stamp layer it up

Craftin' Desert Divas January Release

Hello there!
I'm back to share more cards I created for the Craftin' Desert Divas January Release!

I inked up some Ranger specialty alcohol cardstock with Ranger alcohol inks in mermaid, indigo, and cranberry. After it dried I used the Party Border Dies to die cut the balloons. I used Francy Frames Die to die cut the panel. I stamped the elephant with memento black ink and colored with Copic Markers. I used shades BG11, BG32, RV000, RV63, RV66, Y15, E41, C1, C3, C5. I added some white accents with a gel pen and tied on white bow with string.

I inked up a panel with abandoned coral distress oxide ink than used Fancy Frame Die and Inside Scalloped Die to cut the panel. I stamped the images and sentiments with memento black ink. I used Copic Markers to color in shades (fox) E08, E18, E41, 42, 43, 49, C1, B000, 00, 02; (lamb) W00, W0, W2, W3, W4, W6, R14, R17.

This card I inked up the background with broken china distress oxide ink than used Fancy Frame die and Happy die to cut the panel.  I stamped the images and sentiment with memento black ink. I stamped the images a few times each one to create three dimensional images when assembled. I colored with Copics in shades (lamb) C1, C2, C3, C4, W00, W2, RV000, RV00, RV02; (deer) BG01, BG000, E000, E00, E21, E23, 25, 29.
*******************************
I inked up this background with spiced marmalade and wilted violet distress oxide inks and added a few splashes of white paint. I used Fancy Frame die to cut the panel and the star from Treat Bag die and added the sentiment. For both cards below I used Southwest Border dies and Outdoor Landscape dies to create the scene. The cacti and flowers were inked up with peeled paint and wilted violet oxide inks and the dirt with vintage photo oxide ink.  Copic Inks used E23, 25, 59 and 49, YG03, 17, 67, G20, G000, C3, 4, 5, 7, W0, W2, W4, R01.

CDD Partial Die Cutting

Hello there!!!
I'm up on the Craftin' Desert Divas blog showing you a version of partial die cutting!!!

Below are a list of Craftin' Desert Divas supplies used to create this card.

Ok, let's begin...
Trim up a piece of cardstock 4 x 5 1/4, this will be the front panel. 
Use the stitched cirle die and cut 5 or 6 pieces of cardstock and adhere them together...one on top of eachother as to form a thick barrier.
Align the border die and tape to the panel. 
Flip panel over and tape the layered circle dies precisely where you want your window. The layered circles will allow you to run this thru the die cutting machine and only cut where the circle is. Run this thru the machine, back and forth, a few times.
Flip the panel over to the front view and remove the border die and layered circle barrier carefully!!!
Now place the stitched circle die exactly where you want your window. 
When you place the clear cutting pad over the metal die, do not cover the part you want intact.
It will come out like this...
You will need a craft knife to trim the corners by where the circle and border dies meet.
Place the die cut panel over your card base, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 cardstock. Lightly pencil where the window is. This is the best time to add your sentiment. 
Cover up the sides of the card base so they are kept clean, free from any ink. 
Start inking the background.
When you are happy with your blending, add a few splats of white paint, allow to dry.
Assemble your card and add embellishments!!!

Don't you just love it!!!!
Hope you give it a try!!!
If you have any questions, just leave them in the comments and I'll be happy to answer you!!!
