My All Things Animal Card

I absolutely adore Wplus9's Party Animal set and when I heard we were doing animals I had to pull it out! I started my card with a piece of Neenah Solar White 110 CS and stamped my images using Brutus Monroe detail ink ( my new favorite for everything). I colored my giraffes and balloon with Copics .I added Glossy Accents to the balloon and put some extra dots that I added purple confetti glitter to. To finish my card I mounted it on a piece of MFT periwinkle and then the giraffe print from the MFT Wild Prints paper pack.

For my project I started by die cutting the MFT Picnic Basket out of MFT Wild Prints paper pack and the MFT Trapezoid Treat Box out of Milk Chocolate. I used Score tape to assemble my basket. The handles are attatched with a square brad. Then I used one of the giraffes I colored and cut out to decorate the front. Oh and let's not forget the lavender ribbon around his neck.

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed my creations. I'd love to hear from you in the comments section and feel free to follow me and checkout my other post.

I really enjoyed working with this color challenge. I would have never put these colors together otherwise. I love how this turned out. I started with a piece of watercolor paper and stamped my images from Altenews Wild Hibiscus and sentiment from Painted Inspirations using Brutus Monroe's Raven detail ink. I watercolored my card using Tim Holtz Distress inks Wilted Violet, Black Soot abdominal Blueprints. To pop my sentiment a little I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. To finish my card I mounted it on a piece of silver CS and then on black CS.

Mom's Bouquet With Laura's Loft

So happy to be hopping with Laura over at Laura's Loft today. Mother's Day is right around the corner and I am so looking forward to spending time with mine, life is so busy we don't always take the time

I was trying to come up with a card idea while talking to Laura and she mentioned Lawn Fawn's Mom and Me set and then she mentioned using an Altenew set, when an idea popped in my head.
I started off with a piece of Neenah SW 110 and stamped the images from Mom and Me. Then I masked an oval off. I stamped and masked images from Botanical Garden.

 Once finished I removed the mask and colored my flowers and fox with Copics. I mounted my finished piece on MFT Jelly Bean Green.

I used Altenew inks and stamps from Altenew Brush Art Florals and stamped them on Neenah SW 110. Next I die cut happy which is from Hero Arts Happy Stamp And Cut. My sentiment is from the same set. I mounted the finished piece on MFT Daffodil.

For my last card I used Altenew inks and the Vintage Flowers set also from Altenew. After stamping my images I die cut Avery Elles Simply Said Amazing out of MFT Gold and stamped my sentiment from the companion stamp set. I added sequins from Design Creative Bling and mounted the finished piece on MFT Orange Zest. Oh I forgot one thing , I added WOW Gold Rich EP to the centers of the flowers.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I did creating them. Next on our line up is Jasmine. You won't want to miss what she has created so click the next button and it will take you there.
