Hello there! So what’s up? How about this cute little Spring card to start off the week?
The bunny image is actually lying down, but I thought it would be fun to have him floating away holding onto bunches of balloons. To start, a stitched rectangle was die cut from Neenah cardstock. Using Memento black ink, stamped and masked the heart balloon without the string to create the balloon bundle.
Next die cut a reverse circle mask from masking paper and positioned it in the center of the panel. Stamped the bunny and bird then masked them. Took a cloud stencil and created the cloud background with Spun Sugar and Squeezed Lemonade distress inks and a mini blending tool.
Removed all masks and coloured images with Copics. Drew in the strings with a ruler and a black Copic multiliner. Added highlights to the balloons with a white gel pen. White heat embossed the sentiment on a black strip. Mounted the panel to a top folding card base and added clear shimmer to the balloons to finish.

Hello everyone. This is the third year My Favirite Things (MFT) is running their Card Design Superstar contest. This year there are three categories. This card is for the Clean and Simple (CAS) category.
An A2 size panel was cut from X-press It paper using my paper trimmer. The elephant was stamped first then masked. The hippo and hello were stamped next then masked.
With the masks in place, distress inks were blended on with a mini blending tool for the background. Water was splattered then dabbed off with a paper towel to give it some texture. Masks were removed and the critters were coloured with Copic markers.
The stripes along the bottom was created by blending black ink through the Split Diagonal stencil (discontinued). For dimension while maintaining white space, the camouflage diecut technique was used on the word die there.
The panel was adhered to a white top folding card base and clear shimmer was added to the colourful background to finish. Thank you for dropping by. Have a great day!

Hi there. Another post tonight and it’s a quick one.
Using ink cubes, distress inks in rainbow colours were applied in strips on an acrylic block, then spritz with water, and stamped onto a piece of watercolor paper.
The Lily was stamped twice with Versafine black ink on the panel as well as on a scrap of white shimmer paper. The solid Lily centre image was then inked with Spiced Marmalade distress ink and stamped on the shimmer paper Lily. It was fussy cut out and paper pieced on the watercolour panel before the whole piece was die cut with a rectangle stitched die.
The sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock. Clear shimmer was added to the Lily and a few sparkly clear sequins finushed off the card. And that does it. Thank you for stopping by. Enjoy your day.

You will be happy to know my card today is NOT a punch art card – YAY! It is just a very simple floral card without the feminine colors.
I die cut a Stitched Rectangle from Night of Navy cardstock. To give this navy panel some depth, I stamped Wide Stripes with Night of Navy dye ink for a tone-on-tone look.
I then die cut a navy Stitched Oval Frame. I used a Stitched Oval die slightly smaller than the oval frame to cut an opening in the middle of the stripe panel. I also die cut the same oval from Kraft cardstock and inlaid it before stamping the sentiment from For You Flowers. I had to use the MISTI to stamp the sentiment a few times to get a good impression on Kraft cardstock.
The Peony Bouquet flowers were stamped on Whisper White cardstock with the Summer Afternoon ink cube set. There are actually 3 layering stamps plus an outline stamp for each of the images in the set (flowers and leaves), but I only used 2 layers with the outline. After I finished stamping, I die cut the flowers with the matching dies and added some clear Wink of Stella for some shimmer.
I die cut a branch from Chocolate Chip cardstock before assembling the card together and mounting it all on a top-folding Kraft cardbase.
