I am excited to share these cards I made yesterday morning. I wanted to take it easy yesterday morning, too. I thoroughly enjoyed a quiet crafty session. I so needed it. First one of the school year!
Here is my favorite card that I made:
(The flowers were initially just testing out some new Copics markers. But I loved how they turned out once I die-cut and made a card with them.)
I used my new WPlus9 Doodle Buds stamp set and dies. SO love this set. And, it's interesting because it didn't float my boat when I first saw it. I don't know what changed my mind and made me want to try it - mostly because I thought it would be great for coloring (and it is). It's just so cute and happy! 8-) The sentiment is from WPlus9's Strictly Sentiments 2 and white heat embossed using Hero Arts EP on a strip of black cardstock. It's popped up on a small strip of foam tape to give it a little dimension over the flowers. The card base is Stamper's Select White from PTI and it's embossed using the PTI Woodgrain Impression Plate. After I colored the flowers and leaves, I added some little details using a white Signo Broad gel pen.
My card design was inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch! :
I'm also playing along with Addicted to Stamps "Make Your Mark" challenge, challenge #157.
My next card utilizes a sweet little piece I had already stamped and colored, as well. The stamp is new to me and I was playing around with my Prismacolor Pencils.
I used Blueprints 13 to diecut the panel and the Stitched Square Frames die. I trimmed the sweet little girl by hand [BOO!] and she's laid over a square of vellum paper that's under the square frame to slightly mute the polka dots (DCWV Basics 6x6 pad). The sentiment is white heat embossed on a strip of After Midnight cardstock.
I used the Sketch Challenge on the MFT Challenge Blog for my inspiration.
