The Penguin and the Marshmallow

Happy Friday, my friends! =) Here is my card for this week's Bellarific Friday Challenge over at the Stamping Bella Blog.


This is a MojoBella Sketch week and here is a look of this week's sketch.


I flipped the sketch 90 degrees clockwise this time. =)


I inked up the adorable The Penguin and the Marshmallow for my card. The image is colored with Copic markers then die cut using an Inside & Out Stitched Rounded Square STAX die.


The patterned paper is from American Crafts' Dear Lizzy Happy Place 6x6 Paper Pad and the sentiment comes with the image.

That's all from me. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created for this week's sketch and see all the challenge details over at the Stamping Bella Blog! =)

Have a sweet day and thanks for stopping by!

CAS(E) This Sketch #191

Hello, all! A new sketch is up over at CAS(E) This Sketch. Here is this week's sketch.


Here is my card.


I kind of take the layers of the petals as the layers of the squares. Does that make sense? =)


I inked up one of the gorgeous peonies and the leaves from Essentials by Ellen's Mondo Peony set with Antique Linen Distress Ink, colored them with Copic markers then cut them out using the matching die.


The sentiment is from the Lovely set.

That's all from me. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created for this week's sketch and see all the challenge details over at CAS(E) This Sketch! =)

Feathered Friends + Feather Frame

Happy Monday, all! =) Here is a card that I made using fabulous stamps and dies from Paper Smooches.


It's only after I glued everything down have I realized that this could have been a shaker card, so I made a faux shaker card by just gluing all the sequins in the frame. =)


The handsome peacock is from the Feathered Friends set. He is stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink colored with Copic markers then cut using the matching die.


The frame is cut using the Feather Frame die and colored with Copic markers as well and the sentiment is included in the Feathered Friends set.

That's all for now. For more inspirations using stamps and dies from Paper Smooches, please visit the Paper Smooches Blog! =)

Tiny Townie Peyton Loves to Pretend

Happy Friday, my friends! =) Here is my card for this week's Bellarific Challenge over at the Stamping Bella Blog.


This week's challenge is to "Create Your Own Background," so I used the little chick images that came with Peyton for the background.


I inked Peyton from Tiny Townie Peyton Loves to Pretend with Antique Linen Distress Ink, colored her with Copic markers then cut the image out using the matching die.


Aside from the stamped chick background, I also used some Japanese washi tape to patched a ground for Peyton. The sentiment die is from my stash.

That's all from me. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members and participants created for this week's challenge and see all the challenge details over at the Stamping Bella Blog! =)

CAS(E) This Sketch #190

This is my second post of the day. Please click here or scroll down to see my post for Mo's Digital Pencil Monthly Blog Hop. Thanks! =)

There is a new sketch up over at CAS(E) This Sketch. First is this week's sketch.


Here is my take on it.


I flipped the sketch upside down this time! =)


The pineapple and flowers are from Essentials by Ellen's Stay Golden set. I did a little masking and stamped them with Antique Linen Distress Ink then colored the images with Copic markers.


The sentiment is included in the Stay Golden set. I did a little masking so that I can stamp the sentiment where I wanted.

That's all from me. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created for this week's sketch and see all the challenge details over at CAS(E) This Sketch! =)

Mo's Digital Pencil Monthly Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to Mo's Digital Pencil Monthly Blog Hop! If you arrived from Hellen's Blog, you are on the right track. If not, you can start the hop from Julie's Blog. Here is my card for the hop.


This month's host is Julie and her challenge theme for the team is "autumn." Easy peasy! =)


I decided to color up the beautiful Laura for my card. She is printed on Papertrey Ink's Rustic White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then trimmed to size. The wonderful thing about Laura is that she comes with the grass image as well as a watercolor background (which I didn't use), how awesome is that!


I used some fall-color-ish washi tapes to decorate the rest of my card and the sentiment is from Essentials by Ellen's super versatile Lovely set.

That's all for now. It's time to send you to Anneke's Blog! Don't forget to leave comments along the way, TWO lucky commenters will each receive a $5 gift certificate to use in the Mo's Digital Pencil Store! Have fun hopping and good luck! =)

Super Star

Happy Monday, my friends! =) Here is a card that I made using stamp and dies from Paper Smooches.


I tried to create a night sky look with watercolor, but it didn't come out as good as I would liked. Hopefully it's convincing enough though. =)


I cut the sparkling stars using the Super Star Dies set and yummy glittery cardstock. I adore the extra smily face that you can use to create a smile on anything!


The background is created using Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor and the sentiment is from the Fun & Flirty set.

That's all for now. For more inspiration using stamps and dies from Paper Smooches, please visit the Paper Smooches Blog! =)

Have a sparkling day and thanks for stopping by!

Mason Jar of Hearts

Happy Friday, my friends! =) Here is my card for this week's Bellarific Friday Challenge over at the Stamping Bella Blog.


This is a MojoBella Sketch week and here is this week's sketch.


I stayed pretty close to the sketch this time! =)


I used the lovely Mason Jar of Hearts for my card. The image is stamped on watercolor paper with Jet Black archival ink and colored with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor then die cut using the matching die.


The patterned paper is from Pink Paislee's C'est La Vie 6x6 paper pad and the sentiment is right on the image!

That's all for now. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created for this week's seketch and see all the challenge details over at the Stamping Bella Blog! =)

CAS(E) This Sketch #189

Hello, my friends! =) New sketch is up over at CAS(E) This Sketch. First is this week's sketch.


Here is my take on it.


Ah... I have to admit that loose watercoloring is relaxing and liberating! It's also a great way to cover up my bad watercoloring skill. =)


I inked the beautiful flower and leaves from the Essentials by Ellen's Mondo Peony set with Jet Black Archival ink on watercolor paper and colored the images with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor. The images are then cut using the matching dies.


The sentiment is cut using the super versatile Brushstroke Hello die. I also added a few watercolor splatters for the background.

That's all from me. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created for this week's sketch and see all the challenge details over at CAS(E) This Sketch! =)

Love-Struck & Arrows

Happy Weekend, my friends! =) It's been a little while, but I am back from my vacation and hopefully I can get back to my usual card making groove soon! Here is a card that I made using some fabulous stamp and dies from Paper Smooches!


I love those colors together! =)


The arrows are cut using the Arrow Dies with various cardstock. I cut several of each color and glue them back to back to create some dimension before adhering them to the card front for the background.


The sentiment is from the Love-Struck set and it's traced with a Clear Wink of Stella Brush Pen to add a little subtle sparkle.

That's all for now. For more inspirations using stamps and dies from Paper Smooches, please visit the Paper Smooches Blog! =)
