Yay! Yay! Yay! It's Your Birthday!

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a card featuring an adorable Birdie Brown stamp set from My Favorite Things.


I fell in love with these cute BB Birthday Chicks stamps as soon as I saw them.  Of course, I always love everything Birdie Brown lol.  I started by using the Die-namics Gift Box Cover-Up to cut the window frame from cardstock.  The pretty papers behind the windows are from the Sweet Celebration Paper Pack ... I love the bright colors and pretty patterns in this pad.  I colored the birds and balloons with copics and then diecut them with the coordinating dies.  I used acetate, foam tape and sequins to create a shaker card.  I used a black glaze pen on the birds' eyes.  I used a white gel pen to create the white dots and highlights on the balloons, bird cheeks, and cupcakes.  I used a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the balloons to give them a little bit of sparkle.

Copics used:
Yellow - Y15, Y13, Y11, Y00
Orange - YR18,YR14, YR12
Blue - BG05, BG01, B000
Green - YG03, YG25, YG21
Pink - RV55, RV63, RV52
Brown - E31  

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Anita

I Love You

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a card featuring an adorable stamp set from Neat & Tangled.


I bought this stamp set intending to make some Valentine cards but time got away from me.  So I figured instead of an actual Valentine, I would create a card that can be sent any time you want to let someone special know you're thinking of them.  This cute image is from the Beavers Eh stamp set.  If you haven't seen this set, be sure to check it out ... lots of cute beavers and sweet sentiments too.  I colored this girl beaver and her little mouse with copics and then added some Nuvo Crystal Glaze to her nose and teeth for some shine.  I used a white gel pen to make some polka-dots on her bow and skirt, and then added a few sequins for some sparkle.  I also sponged some distress ink on the cardbase before adhering the beaver with foam tape.  I used a black glaze pen on the mouse's eyes.

Thanks so much for stopping by. 

Hugs, Anita

I used the The Snuggle Is Real and Hey Pretty Kitty stamps and dies for my card.  I colored these adorable girls and their furry friends with copics.  I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the eyeglasses.  I used a black glaze pen on the dogs' eyes and a white gel pen to make polka dots on the pink blouse.  I used distress oxide inks to create the inky background and then flicked on water to create the spots.  I adhered the images with foam tape and then added a couple of clouds and a sun diecut.

The Greeting Farm - February Previews Day 3

Hello and welcome to Day 3 of The Greeting Farm previews of their February release!  Today I'm sharing the new "How Rawr You?" stamp set!



As you can see, this stamp set has lots of amazing dinosaurs and coordinating stamps so that you can make lots of different scenes.  Obviously this stamp set works great for creating cards for the guys, but it would also work well for girls!  My little granddaughter happens to love dinosaurs so I'll be making a girly card using these stamps soon.  I colored the dinosaurs and trees with copics and used a black glaze pen for their eyes.  I used a white gel pen to add some highlight dots also.  I used distress oxide inks to ink up my background, flicked some water drops, and then adhered the images with foam tape. 

Copics Used:
Dinosaur #1 - BG05, BG01, B000, N8, YR09, YR07, YR04, YR02
Dinosaur #2 - YR18, YR14, YR12, YG17, YG03, YG01, T3

So Beary Sweet

Good morning!  I've got a sweet girly card featuring one of the chibi kids by Stamp Anniething.


I recently discovered the adorable stamps over at Stamp Anniething and just had to place an order.  This sweet stamp, Taylor - So Beary Sweet, is from the order I received a few days ago.  I love this cute little girl holding her teddy bear ... she's adorable!  I colored her with copics  and popped her up with foam tape onto some pretty papers from the Romance collection by Simple Stories.  The banner across the top is a cardboard sticker by Simple Stories.  I have to admit I almost never use stickers on my cards but I love everything in this Romance collection.  The sentiment is included with this stamp set.  I added a few sequins to my card for some sparkle.

Copics Used:
Skin - E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair - E59, E57, E23, E21
Dress & Shoes - R24, R22, R20, BG34, BG23, BG11, G00
Bear - E33, E31, E30, E50

I'm entering my card in the Stamp Anniething Facebook Challenge - Week 25.  The theme is "Use Something New" and of course my stamp is new! 

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Hugs, Anita
