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.

Foil Rainbow – Inspiration Challenge #842

It’s Saturday and time for another Inspiration Challenge.  Here is my inspiration:

What took me so long to decide to try foiling? I don’t know, but I asked for a laminator for Christmas and now I’m hooked. I used decofoil transfer gel applied over this fun rainbow stencil by Erin Lee Creative and rainbow shattered glass deco foil.

It’s a little messy looking. My other attempts with smaller designs came out better. My question for everyone is–what do I do with the leftover from foiling this? The part that’s left on the plastic is way too pretty to throw away. I guess I need to take a trip down the YouTube.

I wish there were more hours in the day for me to foil all the things!

Congrats Curtis and Maggie! – Ways to Use It Challenge #838

Today’s challenge is Graduation/Congratulations.  I do need a graduation card, but I needed a Congratulations card more.  My nephew got engaged this week!

I got the digital image as a freebie last year from Jessica Lynn Original.  It’s based on the move Tangled, which I know is one of Maggie’s favorites. They are both into cartoons and fantasy, so I thought they would appreciate this fairy tale theme.  And I had a lot of fun coloring up the card to match their photo.

Coffee Lovers Hop – Sketch Challenge #846

It’s Wednesday and that means it’s Sketch Challenge day.  It’s a slimline sketch today, which was a fun change.

I noticed it was time for the 2021 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and wanted to play along.

But I have a confession to make.  I don’t like coffee.  I’m a tea drinker all day long.  I’m grateful for this Coffee Lovers Hop to remind me that everyone else loves coffee, so I still need to make coffee cards.  I’m also glad for an excuse to use this fun Stampers Delights digital stamp.  Stampers Delights has a Progressive Challenge in their Facebook Fan Group where if you play along each month, they will send you the next month’s image free.  This was the challenge image for February.  She’s fun to color:

Skin: E15, E11, E00 | Hair: YR31, E43, E44 | Eyes: Spectrum Noir EB3, EB4

The sentiment is a favorite of mine from Riley and Company.  I went digging through my drawer of backgrounds and miscellaneous stuff and pulled out some pages that I rescued from a very damaged kids book.  The map strip that I used here is from a map of dragon migration.  HA!  There were other pages that had coffee circles on them and they inspired this Distress Oxide sponged/stenciled background:

I always love this Tim Holtz “Grunge” stencil.  First I sponged Antique Linen around the edges, then I sponged Ground Espresso through the stencil, and splattered with water.

Put it all together with a scrap of gold metallic paper and a strip of coffee mug washi tape.
