You make me smile

Hi all! I am back with a super quick and simple card. :)

To start this one, I used the leaf stamp and randomly stamped over a panel of white cardstock. Then I did a quick, simple coloring with just two colors. For the sentiment, I stamped the 'you' with versafine black and embossed it and then stamped the smaller sentiment under it. The panel was added to a top folding A2 card with a couple of enamel dots to finish it off.

Out of this world

Hello, happy Friday!

I made a shaker card today using one of the new sparkle blend releases from Doodle's Paper Playground, Star Spangled.

I have been trying to participate in the Daily Marker's 30 day coloring challenge so that is where I started with this one. :) I stamped the little girl and planet balloons on white cardstock and colored them with copics. I die cut them out and then die cut a frame out for the front of the shaker card. I added acetate to the back of the frame and foam tape to the edges. To put it together, I laid the sparkle blend in the middle of a top folding A2 card in fog and added the frame to the top.

I adhered the little girl and planets to the top and used my sparkle pen on the planets. I stamped the sentiment on spare cardstock and used my cutting board to create a flag-type banner. I glued that on the front and added a sequin.

AAA Cards #117 - Geometric

Hi everyone. It is time for a new AAA Cards challenge and it is Elaine's choice: geometrics. :)

I love the triangles in this graphic and it reminded me of a stencil that I've had for awhile but don't use very often. Seemed like a good reason to get it out for this challenge.

I started my card by stamping the sentiment in the middle of a panel of white cardstock. Then I taped the stencil down over it and randomly selected a few triangles to add a pretty aqua color down. Once I was happy with those, I removed the stencil and retaped it down slightly off center. I used a light purple to overlap the teal triangles to get a third shade too. I trimmed the sides down on my panel and adhered it to a top folding A2 white card. To add a little bit more interest, I added a few sequins around the sentiment.

Stamps: Concord and 9th - Everyday greetings
Inks: Lawnfawn - fresh lavendar, merman; MFT - Black licorice
Stencils: Heidi Swapp - triangles 2
Embellishments: Doodlebug sequins
