Welcome to my world of cards. This is my journey of joy using mainly Cricut and Copics. You will see some different techniques from time to time and I hope you find some ideas that give you inspiration. Everything that I post is meant to be shared and if you wish to "scraplift", I'm happy to share. Have fun while you're are!
I realize I may be one of the few people that love these birds, but they are so "goofy" in a cute way. They are from a UK designer at a company called Digistamps4You. I colored with copics and found some perfect patterned paper that just made it pop!
A newer digi from From the Heart Stamps, colored with copics. I wanted the image to look dirty around the edges, so I inked heavily. When I had the card finished (pre-balloon), it needed something, so I picked out a balloon die from Spellbinders and coordinated the colors. Well, I loved the card, but NOT the balloon - I'm sure the die is good and I will use it, but the next time, maybe I shouldn't contrast my colors so much.
I was asked to make a birthday for a customer to give to her co-worker (from a group). She explained that Laura (the birthday girl) always brought little gifts for everyone for every holiday, so they wanted to honor her with a card with each holiday. I had hoped to find a digi stamp for each holiday and "Bingo" - Bugaboo had everything but Memorial Day. I probably could has improvised with one of their digis, but I was running out of space, so I printed a clip art banner and put at the top of the inside of the card.
I was happy with how it turned out and it didn't take as long to make as I thought it would!
I had seen a picture on Pinterest similar to this one and decided to try my hand at making. I used a rubber stamp of a tree I had on hand using Distress Inks in blue (I would have never thought of this) then simply adding come dots/splotches with brown distress ink. As can see, I matted with the bold blue and was happy with how it turned out.
