Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Rainbow Unicorns and Glitter.

This week Simon Says Stamp wanted a bit of sparkle for the Wednesday Challenge. I used the My Favorite Things Magical Unicorn stamp set to make a rainbow of unicorns to go with the sentiment in the set. I added a bit a sparkle with my Spectrum Nior Sparkle Pen and the clear Copic Atyou Spica Glitter Pen in Clear. 
 The sparkle is a bit hard to see in the photos but I added a stripe of glitter along the top and bottom of the background panel that I created with Distress Oxide Inks with the Spectrum Noir pen.
 I used the Copic Atyou clear glitter pen to add sparkle to the unicorn horns, they were colored with copic markers.

SSS Wednesday Challenge - Showers or Flowers

For this week the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Flowers or Showers, so I went with flowers! Unfortunately my paper cutter needs a new blade so forgive my fuzzy edges, :(. 
I used the beautiful flowers from both Simon Says Stamps Spring Flowers and More Spring Flowers sets. I heat embossed them on gray card stock with clear embossing powder. 
Then I went to town with my Distress Oxide inks, I first colored all of the flowers in with pretty heavy coat, then while it was still wet I sprinkled each of the colors all over the image. I did some partial drying then splashed on some clear water mixed with shimmer. Then picked up some color with a paper towel. 
I came back in with a light gray Copic marker to add some shading. I used the smile die from the My Favorite Things Sending Smiles set. I also used their Stitched Basic Edges to cut the panels for the top, bottom and center. 
I adhered everything to a pale purple card base and added a few sequins to finish it off!
 Thank you for coming over to take a look! 
This car was totally inspired by a card that Michelle from @CraftCradle created!

MFT Sketch Challenge #329 - Bundles of Blossoms

For My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #329 I decided to pull out one of my all time favorite background stamps, Bundles of Blossoms. 
I stamped the background on the light purple MFT card stock in versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear glitter embossing powder. I love this powder so much, photos don't really do it justice. (this is my first sample pack of MFT paper and I lost the sheet with the color names!) 
I added a vellum strip and then add it to a darker purple card base. 
I heat embossed the sentiment on the same light purple card stock and layered it with the darker purple. I added a bit of Spectrum Nior Clear sparkle pen to the darker banner. I added a few Galactic sequins from Cartwright and I was done! 

In addition to the MFT challenge I am also submitting this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Showers or Flowers! 
Thank you for stopping by!

MFT Sketch Challenge #328 - Doodled Blooms

I decided to use the Doodled Blooms MFT kit for this weeks My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge. I love this kit, the sentiments and stamps are super cute and perfect for all kinds of cards. I went a bit outside my comfort zone this week with lots of gold. 
 I chose a gold glitter card stock from my stash for the bottom layer, I stacked some gold pattern paper on the as the next layer. I then added a smaller piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper that I painted with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I sort of just scribbled the three colors on and then added water to spread and blend them. 
 I added a diagonal piece of gold dotted paper across the watercolor layer. The images were stamped with gold ink and clear heat embossed. I then colored the images with my Copic Markers and stuck them on the vellum. I decided to stamp the sentiment on a piece of the watercolor paper that was left over and adhered it on top. I attached the velum with double sided tape under the flower and sentiment strip.  I finished it off with a few sequins and I was done! 
Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look!

Quick Card - I miss your face.

I needed a card to send to a friend that I have not seen in a while. I knew what sentiment I wanted to use and it was WPlus9 so I figured why not mix it with one of my favorite stamp sets that also happens to be WPlus9. I love those happy birds! 
 This is the Happy Birds Set from WPlus9, These little mid-century inspired birds are super cute and great for coloring. I stamped then on a white panel sitting on the branch did some really simple coloring with Copic markers.
I adhered the panel on a soft gray card base with a strip of pattern paper from my stash.  The sentiment is from the WPlus9 set "That is All"
I stamped "That is all" inside to finish off the card.  I love this sentiment set, it is super cute and has tons to mix and match.  
 Thank you so much for stopping by!
