Fox

I really love fox images and this cute Penny Black fox from "woodland friends" is no exception. Coloring him was so much fun:


I created my background inking the card with Distress Inks and an ink blending tool. Then I stamped the grass using the little Penny Black stamp set "so lucky". I die-cut a frame from two rectangles and adhered it to the card. Now I stamped the fox onto another piece of cardstock and colored him and his bee with Copics. I fussy-cut them and adhered the fox to the card with foam tape. Then I die-cut the banner, stamped the sentiment from the "snippets" set and adhered it. Finally I adhered the bee.
I'll enter this to the Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday March Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "Anything Goes".
Thanks for visiting!

More Yellow

Hey there! It's spring, I am happily digging in my garden, waiting impatiently for the flowers to bloom and I am in the mood for more yellow. So I created a card combining the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Spring Pinterest Inspiration and the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge Springtime/Easter. I have a big, beautiful bunch of daffodils sitting next to my desk, so I created this card:


I started with a white cardbase and softly inked the background using light blue Distress Ink. Then I trimmed a panel of the same cardstock slightly smaller and die-cut the stitched circle from it. I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment to the bottom and adhered the panel to the card. Now I stamped and heat-embossed the daffodils from PTI's Year of Flowers set onto another piece of cardstock and colored them using Distress Inks mixed with water. I cut them out and adhered them to the card. Finally, I added clear sequins.
Here are the inspiration photos of the challenges:

Have a great day everybody and thanks for visiting!

Yellow

Hey everybody! I finally managed to create a card for the MFT Sketch Challenge. And I was in the mood for yellow. And cupcakes. And coloring :)
Here is the sketch:


And here is the card I made:


This little girl is so cute! I had her in my stash and just had to ink her up. Not a lot to tell about the card, so I'll keep it short today - I want to get out and play in the sun!
Thanks for visiting!
