Best wishes from all of us

Happy to play with stamps and dies from Mama Elephant. I used watercoloring in my background using distress inks.

I’m entering this card in this month’s watercolor + birthday challenge at  Mama Elephant August challenge.

I used a combination of stamps with their coordinating dies from the Pandamonium and Just Hatched stamp set. I added a washi tape on the left side to complement the black & white color of the pandas. I also used some sequins and bling as embellishments.

Wonderful in every way

I have some digistamps in my file that I decided to use over the weekend and did some coloring using markers. I have one colored that I shared yesterday here.

For today, I used this cute pups that I got from The Alley Ways stamps freebie which are colored both with promarkers.

I did a circle impression using a circle die behind the pups for some texture. I also added some enamel dots for color. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant  Everyday Greetings stamp set.

I also used the inspirational sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch # 85.

Sharing a card project today using Art Impressions stamp called Coffee BFFs, my second stamp from AI that I bought online. I have my first stamp from them called Picture Perfect and created a card previously here.

I love their fun illustrations, their stamps are great for coloring, a way to use markers or any other coloring medium. I tested my coloring skill again this time using promarker. I think I need a lot of practicing but slowly getting there? I did a quick coloring, no complicated blending to get color gradations. Just having pure coloring fun.

I used a doily behind the main colored frame.

I think it’s a great card for a best friend or someone who’s just been great in keeping us humble in life whatever we may have.

 

Let’s bond

I’ve been loving these super fun and cute stamps from Paper Smooches lately so I’m sharing another one today. I’m entering in Paper Smooches Anything Goes challenge (wk 5).

I used the Great Chemistry stamp set, the chemist? or scientist? is partly colored with promarkers and paper pieced. I stamped the sentiment in a speech bubble and also added the teeny weeny mice as a side kick 🙂

I used my card sketch inspiration from CAS(E) this sketch # 82.

Hello

Popping in quickly to share my take in Sketch N Scrap challenge # 28.

For my main image, the stamps and hello die is from Mama Elephant. I love the Hello script die which I die cut three times  for thicker look, more like a chipboard. The twin image is one of the stamps in Cosmic Stars stamp set, colored with promarkers. I fussy cut them then pop them with dimensional foam.

And from my card base, the embossed background is made using Ana Griffin’s Aviary embossing folder.

Stamping and coloring

Playing this week at Paper Smooches Designer Draft challenge for the month of June.

I used the two houses from the Paper Smooches Bitty Bungalow stamp set and coloring them with promarkers.  For the green hills shape, I also used Paper Smooches Borders 1 Die.

Had fun doing the small scene on this card.

A slice of happiness

Happy Friday!

Newton’s Nook Designs is running an Inky Paws challenge # 11 , a fun and bright Color challenge and I’m definitely joining in.

I used the Sweet Summer stamp set and used the citrus slice as my main image. I colored the two slices with promarkers, fussy cut them and pop them up with dimensional.

For my card base, I stamped the slice randomly keeping the color scheme needed in the challenge. Noticed that I also stamped the small hearts in the yellow pattern paper? I used the heart from the same stamp set. Oh and I also did some background stamping of the slice in green paper, just because 🙂  The flag stamp is part of the Sweet Summer stamp set too.

DIY Notecards

Hello there!

I’m excited to share this DIY Notecards using Newton’s Nook Design Sweet Stamp that’s recently been released last week at Newton’s Nook.

I used minimal supplies on this project that I’m sure are available in your stash. I did two sets of notecards, one using washi tapes and paper piecing, and the other set using promarkers.

I have a number of small sized pattern papers in my stash and paper piecing is just a great way to use  them.

Here I added a strip of washi tape for additional color. Well apparently, I also have a selection of washi tapes that I also adore. I added different sentiment for each notecard for variety. You can also use a strip of pattern paper if you don’t have washi tape.

Here, I simply stamped the fruits and scribbled a touch of color in each card using promarkers, easy peasy. A colored pencil, a light dab of watercolor or copic marker is also fine. You can try other coloring medium in here.

I then packed each of the notecard set with twine, great gift pack for friends and family. You can a dozen or more as you like.

Here’s the other paper pieced set tied with twine. I just added a random strip of washi tape in front of the pack for some fun colors too.

I have a box that fits perfectly the two-set notecards, just a quick gift set.  I made also a tag that compliments the pack.

That’s it for today, I hope you try this easy DIY gift project.

 

 

I love you moo & moo

Using my new Paper Smooches stamps, I’m joining this week at Paper Smooches, Anything Goes challenge (wk 3).

SPARKS BADGE

I initially thought the little character was a girl when I bought it but he’s the cutest little boy isn’t he? Love him in any way. I used a combination of paper piecing, promarkers coloring and stamping on my images.

My card sketch inspiration is from Sugarpea Designs, SugarSketch challenge # 5. I found their blog when I was browsing online and glad to know they also do card sketch challenge.
