Stampers Delights Progressive Challenge – May

It’s May 1st, and it’s time for another Stampers Delights Progressive Challenge.  Head on over to the Stampers Delights Delights Facebook Fan Group and check it out!  Join each month to receive the monthly image for free!  This month is a Kawaii Seahorse with so many fun possibilities!  Click below for details:

I was in the mood for glitter when I sat down to make my card.  OK, I know, when am I not in the mood for glitter?  But I REALLY felt like using glitter.  So I got out my micro glitter and made a fun ocean background for this guy.  I find these glitter backgrounds to be so fun to make.  It’s all about the order of your masks.  First I cut a seaweed shaped mask and put that down, then I added a circle stencil and applied the darker blue glitter.  After I took off the circle stencil, I added the lighter blue glitter.  Here’s a photo from just before I took off the seaweed mask on the second card:

It’s like magic.  After I made my background, I started thinking about what color I wanted for my seahorse.  I almost didn’t color him at all, but decided an orange seahorse would really pop.  If you know me, you know I have a thing for googly eyes. I think they make everything better.  So I got my googly eyes out and started playing.  Often, when I can’t decide which size I want, I take pictures of each option, so I can see them together.

It was a tough choice and I don’t think there was a wrong answer here, but what do you think? Do you think I made the right decision?  Speaking of decisions.  My next decision also required a side by side comparison.  How to arrange the sentiment:

But, you know what?  I realized that I was making two cards and I could use both arrangements of the sentiment.  I do prefer the one on the right, though.

Here’s a close-up of all that sparkle:

OOOH! I love it!  Can’t wait to see what you do with this fun image. Make sure you join in–you’ve got all month!

Stampers Delights April Release – Chibi Meg

Today I’m sharing the Stampers Delights Chibi April release.  You can find the entire April release here.  This card uses the Chibi – Meg digital stamp.

Isn’t she so sweet?  I knew I had the perfect succulent stencil for a background for this cutie.  I did some masking on the stencil to get different colors on the insides and outsides of the leaves.  The background came out so big that there wasn’t much more that I had to do other than cut and color Meg and pop her up on the card.  I did cut the card a little bit smaller than the envelope, so she could hang off the edge for a little added interest.

Stampers Delights April Release – Kawaii Cactus Bundle

It’s April, and that means it’s time for a new release from Stampers Delights.  You can find the entire April release here.  This card uses a fun cactus from the Cactus Bundle digital stamp.

These cactuses have so much personality and they come with such fun puns!  I needed an encouraging card and I thought the “You Are Looking Sharp” was the perfect sentiment for what I needed.

I wanted to have two cactuses encouraging each other–a fun cactus high five.  I know there are many choices of cactus, but I wanted to show how easy it is with a digital stamp to mirror the stamp for two cactuses.  These two cool cactuses don’t mind a prickly high five.

I colored them with Spectrum Noir and Copic Markers and masked them to sponge some sunshine behind them.  Then I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the sunglasses and rocks to bring them to life.  If you look closely, you’ll notice that this close up shot doesn’t have the “action lines” around their high five.  I realized after I took this photo that I needed to draw those lines in.  I don’t know about you, but I spot a lot of things that my cards need once I look at them through the camera lens.

Stampers Delights Progressive Challenge – April

It’s April 1st, and it’s time for another Stampers Delights Progressive Challenge–no foolin’.  Head on over to the Stampers Delights Delights Facebook Fan Group and check it out!  Join each month to receive the monthly image for free!  This month is a Cactus Sample with an incredibly fun pun!  Click below for details:

I love a good pun and as much as I wanted to use it on my card, it will have to wait until next time.  I needed a different kind of encouraging card, so I used a cactus sentiment that I already had in my stash. Because my sentiment talks about stars, I went for a starry night sky.  The last time I used my blue glittery acrylic paint, I cleaned off my brayer on a piece of cardstock.  So I started with that as a base.  I sponged Distress Oxides all over it and then did some Wrinkle Free Distress Technique to add some more color and more texture.  I splattered some white paint, but wasn’t happy with those stars, so I added some more stars using white Enamel Accents.  But it still needed some more sparkle, so I added more stars with Stickles.  Here’s a close up shot of the sparkle:

Stampers Delights March Release – Kawaii Carrots

It’s March, and that means it’s time for a new release from Stampers Delights.  You can find the entire March release here.  This card uses the Kawaii Carrots digital stamp.  

I love all the carrots in this set and was so excited to use them to make my own designer paper.  That’s always fun to do with digital stamps, don’t you think?

Now that I had my DIY designer paper, I decided to use the technique that was showcased in a recent Technique Lover’s Challenge. It’s a pretty easy fun fold.  The only kind I like to do.  I did print out my rabbit a little bit too big to fit in the circle.  Oops!

But it gives it character, right?  Here is the inside of the card:

It’s pretty neat how it opens up in layers.

Stampers Delights February Release – Chibi Onesie Cuties

Today I’m sharing the Stampers Delights Chibi February release.  You can find the entire February release here.  This card uses the Chibi – Onesie Cuties digital stamp.  

I printed out one of the cuties and cut it out with my ScanNCut.  She’s so perfect for a fun, flirty valentine.  And I wanted to make sure my valentine sparkled! I started with a simple background of fun holographic washi tape.  Then I cut a heart out of some of the most sparkly glitter paper I own.  I had a lot of fun coloring her up with Copics and of course added Stickles to make her sparkle even more.

Stampers Delights February Release – Kawaii Spring Fox

It’s February, and that means it’s time for a new release from Stampers Delights.  You can find the entire February release here.  This card uses the Kawaii Spring Fox digital stamp.  I enjoy using digital stamps because they are fun to resize and play around with, and I went big and bold for my cute spring fox scene.

The fox is colored with Copics E08, E15, and E99.  The white is shaded with E53 and E50.  I colored the fence with E44, E43, and E41. One of my favorite ways to build a scene for a card is with DSP for the sky and grass.  I used some stitched landscape dies to give the ground a bit of added interest.  The finishing touch was a shadow under the fox using one of my favorite dies to add a shadow and ground my images.  And don’t forget the Stickles!  Glitter makes everything better.

Stampers Delights Progressive Challenge – February

Are you a member of the Stampers Delights Delights Facebook Fan Group?  Have you seen the Progressive Challenge?  Join each month to receive the monthly image for free!  This month is Autumn Fox.  She might be an autumn fox, but in February she makes a great valentine!  I love a versatile stamp!  Click below for details:

I used a card from the last time I participated in Kendra’s Card Challenge (sixteen cards with different sketches made from 12 pieces of 6×6 paper) as the card base.  Added a big heart to frame this foxy cutie. She sure was fun to work with.  I can’t wait to see what you do with her!

Stampers Delights January Sale! – Chibi Spotlight

I’m back with some more inspiration to go along with the HUGE SALE in the Stampers Delights shop!  Today I chose Chibi Get Well Girl.  I colored her with Copics, but also masked off and stamped some patterns onto her blanket and pillow.  Her hair is colored with Y21, E25, E37, and E99 and her skin is colored with E000, E21, and E00.

I felt like trying a new technique, so I went looking through the SCS Tutorials and found the Acrylic Batik technique.  As usual, it was very fun.

First you clear emboss a background on some cardstock and then spread acrylic paint with a credit card or gift card.  I don’t know about you, but I keep all my used gift cards for just such an occasion.

Stampers Delights January Sale!

There is a HUGE SALE going on in the Stampers Delights shop!  I chose to highlight a pretty floral image today.  This beautiful rose can be found here. It was so fun to color with my Copic Markers.  I kept the card design pretty simple to let the beauty of the flowers shine (with a little help from some Stickles).
