Sparkly Day

Hi all!  Here's a card I made using the Reverse Confetti set, Unicorn Wishes.  It's so cute, I couldn't resist it!  I did some masking to create the scene then colored everything with my Zig pens and an aqua brush.  The star garland is also from RC - I added some glittery Stickles to the white garland.  I also brushed over the unicorn with my clear Wink of Stella pen.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Toile Birthday

Hi all!  Here's a card I made using a couple of sets from Lil' Inker Designs new release, along with an older set.  Laura had mentioned that the Vintage Flower Stamps were designed with toile in mind {hence the 'Vintage' part, lol}, so I thought I'd made a classic blue and white toile card.  I created my own pattern {with the help of my Mini Misti tool that I just used for the first time!} with Cornflower ink on Sweet Tooth card stock.  I then used the Vintage Label die to cut out matching Cornflower card stock, then embossed two of the stamps from the Vintage Label Sentiment stamp set.  The 'Happy Birthday' is from the Sketched Floral stamp set - it fits so perfectly with the Vintage set and die!  I used the Quilted Stitched Pattern die on the Cornflower card stock layer to add to the vintage feel.  I might just have to make a whole rainbow set of these cards!

Lil' Inker Designs New Release Blog Hop - Day 3!

Hi all!  Welcome to the final day of the Lil' Inker Designs New Release Blog Hop!  Hopefully you arrived here from Chrissy's Blog!  I have two cards for you today, so let's do THIS!  :D  First up, I used the Clean Lines for the Guys stamp set and matching dies.  This is such a cool set for any man in your life - and so Perfect with Father's Day quickly approaching!  I colored the engine with Copics.  I used this particular sheet from the Tribal Chic paper pack because I thought it kind of mimicked the engine shape.  I'm a nerd like that, lol!  I used the super cool Pointelle cover up die for the front of the card base for extra interest.  Love. It!!!  How fun is that sentiment??!

Next up is the SUPER FUN Tribal Chic stamp set!  I mean, seriously, the possibilities are endless with this set!  I used 3 of the images to create the background with Versamark ink.  The sentiment is also from this set {love that font}!  Then I cut out some of that awesome Tribal Chic paper using the Dual-Stitched Triangle dies and staggered them.  A little twine and some gold sequins help anchor is all together.

Thanks for stopping by!  Now hop on over to Karen's Blog and Don't Forget to leave comments along the way for your chance to WIN!

Lil' Inker Designs New Release Blog Hop - Day 2

Hi all!  Welcome to Day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs New Release blog hop!  You should have arrived from the talented Sarah Jay's Blog.  Remember to comment along the way for your chance to WIN!  :)  For my card today, I used the Kite Flying stamp set and dies.   Isn't she the cutest little gray hare??  (lol, as opposed to the not-so-cute gray hairs on my head!?)  The bunny is colored with Copics, though I did paper-piece her dress, then framed her with some DP I cut out using the Fringed Scallop Rectangle dies.  I love that you can bend the fringed part up to really add some interest or leave it more flat so it's just a tiny detail.  I kind of went middle of the road here, ;-)  I added some 'grass' with more Copics.  And how sweet is that sentiment (also from this same set)??!!!  Oh!  And what about that cool kite string die?!  {love}

Thanks for stopping by!  Next up on the hop is Lisa Henke - she's such a sweetheart and I love her work!
