Some Bunny Special

Hello everyone,
There is a fabulous new mood board over at SumMore Fun and it is filled with beautiful spring colors and images.  I started with a dark turquoise A2 sized side folding card base and then found an adorable sheet of designer paper with the colors on the mood board that matched perfectly.  I cut the designer paper with a stitched rectangle die in my stash and then popped that up with fun foam onto my card base.  I then took the adorable Victorine Originals stamp "Bunny With Egg" and stamped it with Dark Walnut Ink onto a piece of Kraft card stock.  I colored the bunny with colored pencils in white and cool grays, adding pink to the cheeks, nose and feet. On the tail I colored it in with white pencil then added Ranger Liquid Pearls in White Opal to the top.  I paper pieced the egg with a pretty piece of marbled blue and white paper and then added a coat of Tonic Glitter Gloss Aqua Shimmer pen, this was the first time I have actually paper pieced and I really liked the results, it gave the stamped image some added dimension.  I then fussy cut the bunny, added lots of small pieces of fun foam and popped him up onto the card.  I finished it off by stamping the sentiment "You're Some "Bunny" Special!" onto Kraft card stock with Dark Walnut Ink and then heat embossing with clear embossing powder then placing the sentiment below the bunny.  I am super happy with how it all turned out and hope you will join us at the new challenge.  

See you soon!

Springtime Love

Hello everyone,
Today is my day to take over the blog at SumMore Fun and I am ready for Spring, so this card fit the bill perfectly with all this bright, pretty green.  It was also quite simple and would be easy to mass produce.  So let's get started:
I began with a piece of grey card stock I cut to 4" x 8" and scored on one side at 4" to make a square, top folding 4" x 4" card base.  I then set that aside and cut a piece of bright green card stock to 3 1/2" x 3 1/2", then I used a heart die cut from my stash and cut out a heart in the middle of the card stock.  I then pulled out the Victorine Original stamp set, Backgrounds Set (10596-X) and using the small ink blot stamp I stamped the grey card stock using Hero Arts Field Greens mid-tone ink where the heart would show through and then using Versa Mark clear ink I stamped the green card stock with the same stamp set, this gave it a tone on tone look.  I then used my Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss pen over the stamped area on the grey base where the heart would show through, because who doesn't love some shimmer and glitter, right?  I then pulled out some border scrapbook stickers in my stash and found this fun one in grey, cream and green that went perfect with my card and placed it onto the bottom part of the top layer, after which I took the top layer added fun foam to the back and adhered it to the grey card base. For a final touch I added a few green confetti sequins from my stash.  Hope you enjoyed and I will see you again soon!

Cross of Flowers

Hello everyone,
The new Challenge Mood Board is up at SumMore Fun and it is such a pretty one.  All the greenery reminds me of Spring and new growth.  I used the Victorine Originals Cross of Flowers stamp (2327-H) and stamped it on clear vellum with Versa-mark ink and heat embossed with white fine embossing powder and then heat set.  I cut the cross out and then on the back I used Bright Parrot Green (G19) from Copic and colored it in, doing this gives it a soft almost stained glass effect, then when it was dry I flipped it over and gave it a good coat of Spectrum Noir Glitter Gloss.  I then started to assemble my card.  I used a white A2 sized side folding card base and cut a narrow strip of dark green paper 5 1/2" x 3/4" and glued it next to the fold, I then cut a piece of soft grey card stock to 5 1/2" x 4" and glued that down overlapping the green strip. I then used some vellum tape runner and glued down the cross and ran my two lightest grey Copic markers along the edges to give it some added dimension.  I added a few small green sequins from my stash and that finished off the card.
