GSD 21st Share Your Design Challenge | Heavy Friends Stamp Set

Hi everyone! 
It's been a little while since I've posted. So today I want to jump back in with a card for the Share Your Design Challenge.

So here is my card from the Heavy Friends stamp set.



I created my card first by using my Gelly Plate with a few different colors of paint and textures on scrap cardstock. After the paint dried I cut them with different dies that I have. This particular die is the Frame die and the Twine and Bow die from PPP. I love this mixed media look. I used the positive from the die to create the grass and sky by blending in some distress inks. I stamped the rhino on linen cardstock and blended grey pigment ink on to him, this cardstock has awesome texture!
I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with the little bird and added a Skittles dew drop on the bow, a little felt flower and sequins from my stash.

And that completes my card for today! I hope you like it!

Too cute!
I used my copics to color in the scene. The background I use a cloud template I made to create the sky. I used pigments inks from Amuse Studio. I added white sequins and a piece of twine for the bow.

And this my card for the challenge, I hope you like it!

Happy Easter | DoubleClick Skittles Challenge Week #2

Welcome to Week #2 of our Easter theme challenge at DoubleClick Skittles Challenge!

This week I made a clean and simple card, which took no time at all to make!





I used the Good Egg stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps. I loved the Spring collection so much that I purchased the entire collection, plus the dies.
I used Neenah 80# cardstock for the base, MFT's patterned paper.
I colored my eggs in with copic markers.
I embellished the card with twine and finished it off with the Stream skittle dew drops.


 Thanks for stopping by today! And have a wonderful Easter!

Happy Belated Birthday | STB The Great Divide


Today I'm joining the Seize The Birthday Challenge!
Always a birthday card and a different theme each challenge.
This time the challenge is the Great Divide.

Here is my interpretation:







I used a die from MFT to divide the card, and wrapped washi tape on the left side and right side.
This stamp set is from Amuse Studio called Snail & Co. 
I stamped with Versa Fine ink so I could clear emboss the butterfly on top. 
I added wink of stella and glossy accents to the butterfly below.
I splattered Mr. Huey's mist on the card, but I opened the top and dipped my paint brush in it to get splatters instead of mist. And lastly I added black Skittle dew drops to finish my card.

I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!
