I just wanted to share another card I made for my daughter’s birthday. This is my favorite of the 2 as I think it speaks to her nature and humor.
I love this little pig and her entourage of chicks from Stamping Bella, Nice to SEE you Petunia. My daughter wears glasses and is SUCH a nerd. Why is she awesome? Well, because she is! There was a event that she attended and they were required to wear name tags that said “Hello! My Name is” …. So she wrote Awesome! She loved it.
Quickly, I colored this image with Copics. I added Glossy Accents to the piggy’s glasses. The die is from Lil Inkers. The “You Are” is from the Honey Bee Stamps set, Thanks and Giving and I used the letters to create “NERD” from the Concord & 9th set, Perfectly Penned.
Addendum: I am including this in the latest SSS Wednesday challenge: Anything Goes.
Until next time!
It’s beginning to feel like fall here in this part of the country.
Today I’m sharing a wedding a card I made for my brother and sister-in-law. It was a summer wedding held at the beach and it was a day filled with a lot of love, joy and laughter.
SUPPLIES Stamps: Brett and Brenda (Stamping Bella); Happy Trails (Papertrey Ink) Color: Black Licorice Hybrid Ink (MFT); Inktense Watercolor Pencils (Derwent); Old Paper Distress ink (Ranger) Other: Bristol Paper (Strathmore); Paper Distresser (StampinUp); Clear Sequins
I really LOVE this image from Stamping Bella and thought it to be perfect for the wedding card.
I simply stamped the image with black ink and lightly watercolored the image using Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils. I distressed the edges and added Old Paper Distress Ink to highlight the lovely couple. To finish the card I added with clear sequins around the panel. I decided not to add a sentiment on the front as I just wanted the image to speak for itself. The sentiment that I included from the card is from Papertrey Ink’s Happy Trails – “To love and be loved is everything” – a fitting statement.
Until next time.
