Birthday Elle

Here is a quick birthday card using the set Adorable Elephants.    Such a cute set.  I watercolored a background using Peerless watercolors and some Arches Cold Pressed Watercolor paper.   The images were stamped on Copic Xpress it card stock and colored with Copic Markers.    I cut them out with my Brother Scan and Cut 2.   The sentiment was stamped directly on the watercolor paper using my MISTI to allow for repeat stamping to get a solid image.   The flowers were colored in with my Zig Clean Color markers. 

Stamps:  My Favorite Things Adorable Elephants
Inks: MFT Hybrid Black Licorice
Papers: PI Kraft, Arches Cold Press Watercolor, Copic Xpress it 
Tools: Brother Scan and Cut 2, Clear Wink of Stella, Zig Clean color markers, Copics

Tropical Birthday

I have been a little hiatus with crafting lately.   I have been busy with family stuff that I really have not had a lot of time.   I recently took my supplies to my mom's and helped her make some cards for her friends.   She is 82 years old and learned how to stamp!!   The MISTI was the best tool ever as that made her stamping perfect.  She was very proud of her accomplishments!    I was able to create this card. 

Stamps:   Mama Elephant Make a Wish, My Favorite Things Tropical Flowers
Inks: Versamark, MFT Summer Splash, Hero Arts Ombre Pool to Navy
Papers: Smooth White, SU Basic Black, Vellum, Soft Sky
Tools:  Ranger Black Sparkle Embossing Powder, MFT Fishtail flag Stax, Sewing Machine, Blueprints 1 & 2

Puppy Love

Who doesn't love puppies!  I used a Mama Elephant Playful Pups to create this Valentine's day card.  

I started with a piece of white card stock and used the LOVE dienamic and die cut it on the panel.  On another panel, I blended some Distress inks in Spun Sugar, Pickled Raspberry, and Abandoned Coral.    I colored the puppies with Copics and then placed them on the card.   A die cut heart from Blueprints 4 finish it off.  

I am entering this card in the Simon Says Wednesday Stamp Challenge. 

Stamps:  Mama Elephant Playful Pups
Inks: MFT Hybrid Black Licorice, Distress: Spun Sugar, Pickled Raspberry, Abandoned Coral 
Papers: PI Kraft,  MFT Smooth White, Copic Xpress it

Monkey Love

I have been quiet on the blog.   Life has been busy!   I was busy for a couple of weeks trying to make cards for the Cards from the Heart Card Drive.    It is a card drive for Valentine's cards for children that are in the hospital.   I wanted to get them made and shipped off to Winter Sims before the deadline which was last week.     Over the next couple of weeks, I will share some of the cards that I made.  

Here is a card for this week's MFT challenge.   I missed the week before.  I have been doing their challenges for 3 years and never missed a week!    Life got to hectic and it just wasn't going to happen.    The monkey was colored with Copic Markers.  

Thanks for stopping by!
