Card Making

I Think… You Are My Favorite

Hello again! I hope you guys are having a great week so far! I’ve been having a lot of fun these last couple of days because of The Daily Marker’s 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I have been keeping up with the challenge and been coloring everyday so far. I know we’re barely on day 4 but if you know me…. Anyway, you should really check out The Daily Marker site and look up #TheDailyMarker30Day2 on Instagram and see all the neat coloring going on.

For day 3 of the challenge I colored the unicorn from the Spectrum stamp set from Paper Smooches and decided to use it for a card. This is my third card using Spectrum and all because of this little unicorn, it’s adorbz! Also, I will be submitting this to the Paper Smooches SPARKS Anything Goes Challenge.

I Think You Are My Favorite 2

I wanted the unicorn on top of a cloud and so when I do masking, I like to do it with masking tape. I stamp my image on a couple of pieces of tape, depending on how wide the image is. I know this might seem like more work but it’s easier for me to cut each strip and really because I have masking tape and no masking paper. I only cut the bottom portion of the unicorn’s body because I knew the cloud was going to only reach the top of it’s legs. I placed the tape on the stamped unicorn and stamped the cloud on top with my MISTI.I Think You Are My Favorite 3I just love how crisp the images look when stamped with the MISTI.

I also decided to do partial die cutting. I cut the top of the unicorn after I colored it.

Then I turned it around and cut the bottom of the cloud.

I made an ombre background using Mini Distress Inks and sprinkled a little water on it. Here’s a tip, in order to make sure I masked the edges the same length, I used graph paper underneath.

To finish it off, I colored the unicorn horn and cloud with clear Wink of Stella and stamped the rest of the sentiment inside the card.

Cotton Candy Birthday Card

Today I decided to play with a Paper Smooches stamp set, Spectrum, which I think is such a cute stamp set. I’ve been waiting for a good reason to use it and then I realized my niece has a birthday this month!

I have a couple of Copic markers and even though I’m not that good at coloring, I want to try to use them more often. If I’m going to color in a stamp, I’ll stamp it more than once in case I mess up on the coloring.

I also stamped and die cut a couple of clouds and stamped a star burst. I also used my new Tim Holtz stencil for the background and I finished off the card with clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and a Lawn Fawn sentiment.

Hopefully the birthday girl will love it!
