Happy Easter bunny

Another Easter card using a Simon Says Stamp stamp set, along with a flower stamp from Paper Smooches.

The images were colored with Copic markers.  The background die is from PaperTrey Ink, and the patterned paper is from Doodlebug.

I'm entering this in the Cute Card Thursday challenge (celebrate!) and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, using this Easter inspired mood board:

Happy Easter, Chickie!

Started on my Easter cards this week.  This one uses stamps from one of 2017's monthly kits from Simon Says Stamp.  I colored the chick and eggs with Copic markers and then mounted them on papers from Doodlebug.

I'm entering this in the Shopping Our Stash challenge to use a bird on your project
 and the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge, based on the Easter/Spring mood board shown below:

TicTacToe Challenge #39

Time for a new Tic Tac Toe Challenge.   Here is this week's challenge board:

I used the middle vertical row:  frame, any type of accents, sweets.  

The stamped images are from Art Impressions and the paper is from Doodlebug.  I added a few little gems for sparkle.  The image is colored with Copic markers with a little yellow glitter pen added to the candle flames.

This month Paper Issues is joining with Stuck?! Sketches for a combined challenge.  Here is the challenge sketch:

Here is my layout from the sketch.   Photos are from last May at Kings Island.  The grandkids didn't let a few raindrops dampen their fun!

Tic Tac Toe Challenge #36

Here is the challenge board for this week's Tic Tac Toe challenge:

I chose the diagonal row from top right to bottom left:  fancy border, green, popped up.

There's no stamping on this card.  The leprechaun is a clip art image, printed and cut with my Cricut, then popped up with action wobbles so he wiggles around a bit.  The scallop border and the pot of gold are Cricut cuts, also.  I added some Wink of Stella to the leprechaun and a little gold glitter gem in his hand.

My Favorite Things - Speed Cardmaking challenge

The last challenge of My Favorite Things Olympic card making challenges is the Speed Card Making challenge.  The goal is to complete a card in 20 minutes or less.  This challenge is hosted by the MFT Challenge blog.

Here's my card, made with just two seconds to spare!

The images and sentiment are all from MFT Fab-Boo-Lous Friends stamp set.  They were stamped, colored with Copics and then fussy cut and adhered to the orange background.  The diecut opening was made with the MFT rectangle peek-a-boo window die.  I smudged a little white ink around the black cardstock to add to the ghostly theme.  I wanted to add a little stamped bat in the upper corner of the orange cardstock piece but ran out of time.  These little ghosty friends are so cute!

My Favorite Things - Freestyle card challenge

Another Olympic challenge over at My Favorite Things.  This is a freestyle challenge - the only requirement is to make a winter themed card using MFT products.  This challenge is hosted by the MFT Card Challenge blog here.

For this card, I stamped some snowflakes from the Frosty Friends stamp set, embossed with white pearl embossing powder, and then sponged inks over top.  I fussy cut some snowy hills and added some stickles, then added my stamped images on the "water" on the bottom.

The images are from My Favorite Things Frosty Friends stamp set, colored with Copic markers.  I had to do some creative masking for the sentiment. I used several stamps from the Witch Way Is the Candy stamp set, masking individual letters to get the word "cool".  The word "you're" is from one of the stamps in that same set.  I fussy cut the speech bubble and outlined it with black pen.  I love that cute walrus!
