Let’s Celebrate!

Happy Friday! I’m back to share another card using Paper Smooches February release!

This fun idea popped in my head one night.  πŸ™‚ I used the new Let’s Celebrate Icons dies.

I had this cute little fish sitting on my desk, and he looked like he wanted to visit a friend ❀ . I thought of these balloons as the sacks you take fish home in. Those sacks have greenery on the bottom, right? πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

I colored one fish in with Copic Markers and the others with Zig watercolor pens. I also used the Mirror Blocks to stamp the fish swimming toward her friend. This sentiment is from the new, Let’s Celebrate stamp set. The fish is from the Courteous Cuties with the dies. I super enjoy all the critters in that set. ❀

Oh, and the heart is from the Cozy Coffee die

Happy 5th!

Lots of fun birthdays to make cards for! I used some awesome Avery Elle stamp sets for this one: Numbered Balloons, Party Animal, and Surf’s Up! I decided I’d love to have the dies from the Numbered Balloons! πŸ™‚ Never fails. Haaa!hawkins_jill_happy 5_wmOh, to be five! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_happy 5_00_wmI colored the van with Copics, used Distress inks to rub over, and finished off the balloon with some Wink of Stella shine. That was a mistake bc my WOS pen is sort of on the fritz and spurts out a lot all at once. Should have waited til after I photo’d. I say this EVERY TIME I touch that pen! Grrrrr. Haaaa! Oh well. πŸ™‚

The wonky stitch rectangle die cut is MFT. I’m pretty much using that on everything rightΒ  now πŸ™‚ The STAX set it comes from rocks! πŸ™‚

That’s about it for today. Stay warm! I went out this morning and it was 1 lovely degree today! πŸ™‚
