Countdown to Confetti - Flowers for a Friend, Crafty Critters & Cheerful Pals - Day Three

Welcome back to day three of the Countdown to Confetti January Release!   Today we are sharing three stamps sets all from the illustrator, Dawn Machel.   I love all her designs and had so much fun creating cards today with these sets!   

My first card is a slimline card using the new Cheerful Pals stamp set!  This set is totally adorable and I stamped out all the little critter images onto Premier Polar White cardstock and then colored with my Copic markers.    

I knew I wanted to create a little scene card and what's more cheerful than adding a beautiful rainbow!    I used the Over the Rainbow Confetti Cuts and die cut from white cardstock and then colored the sun and rainbow with my Copic markers as well.  

For the background, I ink blended with Island Blue and Iced Aqua ink for the sky.  For the ground, I used the Nuts About You to create the grassy border and ink blended with Avocado and Lime Green inks.   The sentiment is from the Cheerful Pals stamp set.   

Following along with the rainbow theme, my next card features a rainbow of hearts!  I thought it fit perfectly with the new Crafty Critters stamp set and Oh My Heart Cover Panel!   

I die cut the Oh My Heart Cover Panel from white cardstock and then backed it with a ton of colored cardstock scraps!   Here are the colors that I used:  Salsa, Rose, Bumblebee, Tangy Orange, Lime Green, Iced Aqua Royal Purple and Piggy Bank!   

I stamped the critters from Crafty Critters onto Premier Polar White cardstock and colored with my Copic markers.   I die cut them out with the matching Crafty Critters Confetti Cuts.   I made sure to incorporate a rainbow into my coloring as well!   The images were placed on top of a circle panel that was die cut from the Square & Circle Frame Confetti Cuts.   

I stamped a sentiment from the Crafty Critters stamp set onto the die cut circle.   I added some final details with my white gel pen and some clear sparkle jewels.  This stamp set has some really cute crafty images to pair with the critters!   

And for my last project today.......

I created another little mini scene with the new Flowers for a Friend.  I stamped the images onto Premier Polar White cardstock and colored them with my Copic markers.   I die cut them out with the Flowers for a Friend Confetti Cuts.    

For my card base, I embossed a white panel with the Oh My Heart Cover panel.   I then die cut a base of Piggy Bank cardstock with the Stitched Scallops Cover Panel.   I added a small piece of Sunshine cardstock.    My sentiment was stamped from Flowers for a Friend stamp set and then I sewed it own with a zig zag stitch.   I added some clear sparkle pen on the flowers and then finished off the card with some clear crystal sequins and crystal jewels.
