Birthday Memroies - Animals March

These are great colors for a birthday and I'm excited to show you one every Monday clear until mid-July.  Yup!  I've used the Birthday Memories designer series papers from Stampin' Up! to create this project and followed the card layout and idea by the amazing Stampin' With Sandi.  I also used some Make it Crafty chipboard embellishments for the sentiment and a couple gems and Stickles for sparkle.  The Balloon Honeycomb Embellishments are from the same suite.

Buddies

Here's another bookmark I've made for the New Year. This uses Buddies from Sister Stamps and I added details with a white gel pen to the clothes.  I stamped the frog twice so I could add a little more green in contrast to the red.


The Prosperity sentiment is from Make it Crafty chipboard embellishments. The Prosperity logograph is from a cupcake templates set that seemed to be the perfect size for stenciling.  The ink wasn't drying on the smooth paper I selected so I embossed it too.


These are the Copic markers I used on Buddies:

YG21, 25, 17, G19, BV20, R02, E04
E41, 44, 47, 49
E50, 55, 57
E000, 30, 53, 04
C3, 5, 7

Spring Short Stack

This is a card that appeared to me in a dream and I had to jump out of bed to sketch it out.  The next day, I was happy that my sketch was legible enough to follow and I made this card using Spring Short Stack by Stampendous.


These are the Copic marks I used on this:

Year of the Dog

Happy New Year!  I've created some bookmarks to give away this year in my red envelopes and this is the first one I made. I was going for a off-set print look where the black and red ink are offset if they were printed by a press.  It's something I'm experimenting with and I think this one turned out just so-so.  But it'll make a great bookmark.  :D


I've used Sister Stamp's Year of the Dog stamp and drew the two lanterns on sketch paper. The Good Luck sentiment is Make it Crafty chipboard embellishment.

Heart Throb Kit

I've splurged with another kit from Queen & Company and bought their Heart Throb Kit. I was disappointed the kit didn't come with the acrylic words any more but I was surprised at how well the papers work together. I also think the hearts were easier to create with than the ornaments. But all in all, they were both fun kits to work with.

Here's another card I created with the Heart Throb Kit from Queen & Company. I got the card layout and idea from Mary Ann Maldonado on the Queen DT.  Thanks for the inspiration!
