Hey Chick!

Happy Friday, crafty peeps! 🙂 I’m here to share this fun little Paper Smooches card that I made for a friend today. 😉 It is the perfect card to send her. ❤️

I colored this cutie flamingo with Copic markers.  I reverse scored the card base and set it aside. For the background, I masked off a rectangle and blended on some Distress Oxide Inks. I used Fossilized Amber, Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover. I spattered on some black acrylic pain, added some stitching and complete. ❤

Free Hugs!

It’s the last day of school here!! I’m most excited about not packing any more lunches for a while! whoooohoooo! 🙂 Ha!

Today, I’m popping in to share this sweet Paper Smooches card. 😉 I just think this little cactus is so sweet! ❤

After stamping with Copic friendly ink, I die cut the little cactus out. After that, I colored the cactus with Copic markers. I die cut the flower frame and added that the card panel with some stitching and the sentiment. I adhered the cactus with foam. I added the cute little hearts with some Wink of Stella sparkle and some Glossy Accents on top of that.

This card ended up being so sweet to me, I had to give it to someone I love immediately. ❤

Technique Tuesday Release Day! June!

The day has come for all the new Technique Tuesday June products to be available HERE!

For this fresh new card, I used Technique Tuesday’s new Strawberry Stamp Set and the new Jam Jar Labels Crafting Dies. For this, I stamped the strawberries with Versafine ink and then I decided at the end, I wanted to color that one strawberry. Well, I was too far along to turn back now. Since Versafine is not Copic marker friendly, I pulled out my Prismacolor pencils. Whooohooo! I quite enjoy how it all turned out in the end. 🙂

I added a smidge of stitching and some twine, and the card was complete!

Be sure to head over the Technique Tuesday Blog HERE so you can check out all the DT’s projects. I always enjoy seeing them!
