Life’s been crazy around here lately, so my mojo has been on hiatus.  I hope it comes back soon – and in full force!  This little girl was too cute, and I am happy with how this flip it card turned out for From the Heart’s progressive challenge.

For this card, I used Stephanie Barnard’s Ornate Flip It’s #2 Card die, and I cut it out of 130 pound Richeson watercolor paper, which I love because it is super heavy.  It makes the card flip with ease. I cut out the adorable image of the Pumpkin Patch Girl using my circle Spellbinders die after coloring her with the following Copic markers:  B000, B32, B41, B45, E00, E04, E08, E11, E19, E29, E49, E50, G20, YG61, YG63, YR02, YR04, and YR09.

The designer paper, which I cut using the same dies as previously mentioned, are from the K&Company Sleepy Tree paper pack.  I think they are perfect for a Fall card.

Happy Labor Day weekend, everyone.  Hope that you are able to enjoy it!  Today I am sharing a birthday card.

For this card, I started out using the adorable bunny on a cake stamp from Unity Stamp Company’s eat ALL the cake stamp set.  I loved the look on the bunny’s face as he tries to peek over his big belly.  The image is stamped using Ranger’s Archival ink onto 135 lb Richeson watercolor paper, and then colored in using Rose Art markers (yes, the super inexpensive kids’ markers) and water.  This is a quick technique for using inexpensive markers to color cards and get a different look.  Scribble the color onto an acrylic block and then use a paint brush and water to “paint” the image and get somewhat of a watercolor look.  The sentiment is from the same kit.  I stamped it on Cryogen Iridescent 89# cardstock.  The background stamp is done in Bahama Blue Memento ink, and then I blended the ink color onto the cardstock.  Both the background stamp and die are by My Favorite Things and are made to look like washi tape.  I matted the image using the Spellbinders Card Creator dies on Cappuccino Sorbet Text, and again onto the card base of Neenah Desert Storm.  The photo doesn’t really pick it up, but I did go around the white space where the “sparkles” are, and I added some clear Wink of Stella so that in real life, the card does have some sparkle to it.
