Paper Smooches - Party Pals

Good morning everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card using an adorable image from Paper Smooches


 

This cute little duo is called Party Pals.  I couldn't find them on the Paper Smooches website so I'm thinking that maybe they're out of stock.  But they have lots of other sweet critters so be sure to stop by here and check them out.  I colored these animals with copics and then used Glossy Accents on the bunny's teeth.  I also used my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the balloon to give it some sparkle.  The sentiment is from the Paper Smooches' Sugar Rush stamp set.  I'm entering this card in the Paper Smooches May Designer Drafts Challenge. 

 
 
 
 
 
Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!
 
Hugs, Anita

SugarPea Designs - Tee-rific

Happy Wednesday!  Today I'm sharing a card I made for the SugarPea Designs Blog




This image is from the Tee-rific clear stamp set.  You can see the entire set of images in the photo below.  This was a quick and easy card that didn't require much coloring, but I did use my copics to color it.  I added the clouds using a small duster brush and a template.  If you want to see how I made these easy clouds, be sure to stop by the SugarPea Designs Blog.  


  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have an awesome day!

Hugs, Anita

The Challenge #36 - Celebrating Teachers

( ** Scroll down for my Your Next Stamp post ** )


Happy Monday everyone!  We have a new challenge today over at Always Playing With Paper's The Challenge.  Our challenge this week is to create a project celebrating teachers!




What a wonderful theme!  My little grandson had the most amazing teacher this year and sadly this is her last year of teaching.  Well, it's sad that young children will no longer have the pleasure of having her as a teacher ... but I'm sure she's probably pretty happy about retiring ;-)  I used some cute images from the SugarPea Designs' Teacher's Pet clear stamp set.  There are lots of great images in this set that work perfectly for teachers and students both.  I colored the crayons and pencils with copics and then used some papers from Doodlebug Design.  




Be sure to stop by The Challenge to see the gorgeous projects by the rest of the DT!  I hope you find some time this week to play along with us!
 
Thank you so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!

Your Next Stamp - May Feature Day

Good morning everyone!  Today is Feature Day over on the Your Next Stamp Blog, which means that the team is sharing some new samples featuring the YNS stamps and dies.  Our theme this month was to CASE a DT member's project.


 
I decided to case Wendy's adorable bunny card (scroll down).  I used the sweet bunny from the Woodland Cuties stamp set and colored it with copics.  I used the Woodland Cuties Die Set to cut out the image.  I used the Stitched Rectangle Die Set on the green panel and I also used the Chunky Grass Die.  The clouds were cut using the Spring/Summer Scene Dies and I stamped the sentiment on the banner from the Whatknot Seasons Die Set .  

Copics used:  E42, E41, E40, R02, R00

Here's Wendy's amazing card:



Here are the products I used on my card:

SugarPea Designs - Flashback Friday

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a card for our Flashback Friday feature over on the SugarPea Designs Blog.



I decided to ink up a mean and fierce dragon ...




... well, OK, maybe he's not so mean or fierce!!!  He's totally adorable, right?  This cute dragon is from the Blow Me Away clear stamp set and I colored him with copics.  I stamped out some extra bubbles and cut them out to resemble bubbles ... does that make sense lol?  Anyway, I added some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen and Glossy Accents to the bubbles for some sparkle and shine.  The sentiment is stamped on the banner that I cut using the SugarCuts - Gift Tag Die.  So why not dust off one of your older SugarPea Designs stamps and have some fun?  Our older stamp sets need some love occasionally too ;-)

Copics used:
Dragon - BG05, BG01, B000, YG17, YG23, YG03, YG01, C3, C1
Ground - E35, E33, E31, E30

You're Dyn-o-mite

Happy hump day!  Just wanted to pop in and share a card I made using some fun Your Next Stamp products!


 
 
This cute image is from the Boom! clear stamp set.  There are three different dynamite images and several funny sentiments included in the set.  I colored the dynamite with copics and then cut it out using the coordinating Boom! Die Set.  I applied Glamour Dust to the bomb so it would have a sparkly look.  My papers are from the Patriotic Picnic 6x6 pad from Doodlebug Design - I love the papers in this pad! 
 
 
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a dyn-o-mite day!
 
Hugs, Anita
