I needed a baby card for a friend and still had the blue polka dot paper sitting on my desk since last week when I made the Sweet Treats card. I'm really loving this DP. It's from DCWV DIY Favor box collection. I wasn't a big fan of DCWV paper in the past, but this one is double sided, heavier paper and I love the colors in the stack. The "bump" on the image is paper pierced and the rest is colored with copics. I also added some glitter accents with Wink of Stella pen.
After making the card I couldn't resist adding a coordinating tag and vellum envelope. Thanks for looking. Supplies:
I was racing this weekend so just a quick card today. It's based on the MFTWSC26 sketch and using a couple of different MFT stamps including one of my favorites - You Make My Tail Wag. The background is also embossed using the Large Polka Dots template, but it's hard to see on the picture.
Thanks for looking. Supplies:
Stamps: MFT You Make My Tail Wag, Piece of Cake
Tools:MFT Stitched Speech Bubble, Large Polka Dots Template
I love April in Texas. The weather is gorgeous. The wildflowers are everywhere. I did a fun 42 mile charity bike ride for Autism this past weekend and was in awe of how nice it was outside. Well, that's my inspiration for the Bellarific Friday Mojobella card this week - bicycle and flowers.
The sketch was very detailed and I decided to follow it pretty closely. The image is colored with Copics and I stayed with the flower inspired colors. Thanks for looking and happy spring!

This card is based on the MFTWSC274 sketch. I usually use MFT stamps for their challenges, but I needed to make a quick baby card and had my heart was set on the Mama Elephant Bear Hugs set. I used MFT die though.
The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and background is sponged with ink. I'm still getting used to coloring with these pencils and how the color changes when gamsol is applied. The shadows turned out to be a lot more subtle than when I first colored the image.

I needed some cards with minimum layers and embellishments for mailing. Here’s one for Bellarific Friday Challenge using MojoMonday441 sketch. I'm also entering it to the Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge. It’s a fun image, but all the little details took a while to color. It's a also hard to tell from the photo, but I used some glitter pens to add sparkle to the card because I for one can't imagine having a pile of craft supplies on the table without some bling :)

I haven't been playing along with as many card challenges the past few weeks because I started a second blog - HandmadePetite. It's a sewing blog and I've been busy setting it up and making some new garments. Sewing projects are definitely a lot more time consuming than cards, but at least I get long term use out of most of them :)
Along the same theme, I thought it'd be fitting to make a sewing related card.
This one is for MFTWSC273 Sketch Challenge, though I didn't follow the sketch as close as usual and went with a more traditional shaker frame. The image is from a retired MFT set Sew Nifty.

Instead of a card this week I wanted to share a little notepad cover. The Bellarific challenge this week was to use paper piercing technique. Both of the dresses on the image are cut out from patterned paper. For some extra pizzas I added jewelry with liquid pearls and glasses are covered in Glossy Accents. I've accumulated a number of funny wine and drinking related stamps and this one from Unity seemed the most fitting here: "Life needs more half days and happy hours."
I initially made it as a gift, but then had to make another one so I could keep one myself :).
I started out with green base cardstock for the Simon Says Challenge - A Bit 'O Green, but somehow by the time it was finished, there was hardly any green on the card. I guess that's where the "bit" part comes in. The adorable stamp is called Bella with Balloons from Wild Rose Studio. All the coloring was done with Copics and to add some texture I covered the balloons with Glossy Accents.
This card is for the Bellarific Friday Flower Challenge. I colored the adorable Uptown Girl Audrey with Copics and added felt rose embellishments. Of course I also couldn't pass up adding some bling - the metallic washi tape and some silver highlights with the Gelly Roll pen. Love how this turned out.
The inside of the card is stamped with the Riley Funny Bones "I Love Pink" stamp. It's a different Audrey Hepburn quote than the one in the Stampingbella set and it's so fitting for this image.
Thanks for looking.
