I made this card for a swap I did with my team. It's always like opening a present when we do our swaps. Such a bunch of talented ladies. :)
I used a stamp set and matching die set from the April Collection called birthday icons. This set has 8 cute images and related sentiments. So fun to use for birthdays and other occasions. I also used the yellow striped washi form the celebration set. Very cute patterns.
Here's a little preview of a stamp set from the March collection called be brave. I stamped the sunrays twice and colored the sun with copics. I blended the center of the sun with Y11, Y13 & Y15. The outer rays were colored with Y17 and Y15.
Here's a fun technique that creates a smooth, soft look. Using a sponge dauber, pick up some ink from the buttercup ink pad. Transfer the ink to a baby wipe, then "stain" the butterfly (over the embossed area) with color. Begin in the center with buttercup, working lightest to darkest, add lime, then mermaid. Experiment with different colors.
The tulips in the happiness blooms set are very pretty and fun to color. Color was added to the tulips and leaves by using the solid egg stamp from the spring scene stamp set. Super simple & quick. See the whole February Collection here!
Inspired by the new February Collection flyer this card uses somebunny loves you and matching die set. The blush & vellum fishtails started with strips of paper measuring 1 3/4" x 3 1/2" and were hand trimmed. See the whole February Collection here!
