YNS Supplies:Your Next Stamps Phoebe with her Wagon Stamp SetYour Next Stamp Phoebe with her Wagon Die Set,Crystal Clear Gumdrops

Other Supplies:Pink Fresh Studio Happy Things Pattern Paper, Copic Markers, Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Square Stackables, 3M Foam Tape,

I must say I love this card!!  The colors, the little dog, the wagon, the sentiment and the bow! It all just seems to fit so nicely.

I thought about cutting the pattern paper in have to leave a little white like the sketch but I didn’t like the way it looked so I used the bow as a separation piece.  I hope that works.

For this card:

All I did was add a piece of Pink Fresh Studio Happy Things Pattern Paper and add it to my card front.

Then I added a bow out of some white ribbon.

After that, I used Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Squares Stackables to die cut my white square panel.

I used Your Next Stamps Phoebe with her Wagon Stamp Set to stamp the sentiment, the little dog and the wagon.

Then I used Your Next Stamp Phoebe with her Wagon Die Set to die cut the wagon and the dog.

I colored the dog with Copic Marker E23, E25 and E27 and the wagon with R35 and R37.

Then I added the wagon and the dog to the square panel using foam tape.

To finish off the card, I added Crystal Clear Gumdrops behind the white square panel.

Nice and easy.  Did you notice that I used the wagon handle as the panel you see in the sketch.  I thought that was clever. Do you?

So what do you think? Let me know below!

CASology 137 – Tropical

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!! We are back again with another Cue Card for you!!

Week 137 - Tropical

When I saw this cue card I thought of fun under the sun!! Especially since we are covered in snow here.  I can’t wait for the sun to start shining bright here.

I created two completed different cards for this challenge.

For the first card I blended 4 different colors to create a beautiful tropical background.

Take a look at my card:

You are coolThe colors are so pretty!! To create this card:

1. I die cut the circle using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles Die.

2. I die cut the buttons turned into “flowers” out using Papertrey Ink Button Stacks Die.

3. I used Distress Ink Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Salty Ocean to create my tropical background.

4. My sentiment is from Lawn Fawn, they sent it to me with one of my orders as a thank you.  It was super fitting for this card.

5. I stamped the sentiment then I flagged the thin strip of cardstock. I attached it to my circle using my regular tape runner.

5. I attached my stitched circle and buttons using foam adhesive.

6. I attached Doodlebug Design Sprinkles Birthday Boy enamel dots to the center of the buttons.

You are cool straight foward

I love how that card turned out.

Now onto my second card:

This card is for Kathy’s 30 day coloring challenge.  I’ve been practicing my coloring so I wanted to stay with that challenge.

Take a look at my card:

Hello Sunshine

For this card I used a retired Stampin’ Up! image and colored it with Prisma color pencils just to see how the look.  I’m ok with this image but I’m not satisfied with it. I want to practice this type of coloring more.

I used Distress Ink Salty Ocean and the sentiment stamp is Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine.

This card fits the tropical theme, the sun, the ocean water, the kids in the sunshine.  Who could ask for anything more.

I hope my cards have inspired you to join us this month.
