Donut Birthday

For my project today, I've used three products from Whimsy Stamps: Donut Birthday rubber stamp, Straight Edgers metal die and the Farmhouse Basket stencil. Be warned, this is a dangerous stamp, let me tell you!  Not only was it fun to color but it also left me craving donuts.  LOL This one is on my list for a movement type card so be on the look out for a second project soon.  ;D

Here are the Copic markers I used on this:

E71, 74, 77, 79
E51, 55
C2, 3, 4, 5
R05, 46, 59

Party Pandas

For this project I used Party Pandas from Stampin' Up and followed a layout by Michelle Last. I changed a few things and added the honeycomb balloon.  The hats were from the Party Animals decorative paper so I colored them and the envelop to match.  Enjoy!

Stained Glass Sunrise

Come link up one of your projects this week in the Anything Goes challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps - you'll have a chance to win a $10.00 gift card and if your project is features, then you'll get even more bonuses!

For my project today, I've used Stained Glass Sunrise from Little Miss Muffet Stamps which is one of the new releases today. I've used a sentiment but I think it would look fantastic with a character too ... or even on it's own.  To fit the size card I was using, I cut off the top then used part of it for the corners.

(Sorry it looks like I've lost the Copic markers list for this project.)

The sentiment is a Make it Crafty chipboard embellishment.
This was the Technique Lovers Challenge #678 from Lyn which evolved into a stamp.

Out of This World

I couldn't resist the glow in the dark embossing powder from Lawn Fawn's release this month and added a couple goodies to go along with it.  Besides, I've been trying to figure out these backgrounds too and I want to thank Jen (Jennifrann) for giving me a link to a watercolor outer space background tutorial.  I originally thought the embossing powder would be clear when heat set but it has that typical green tint.  Once I figured that out, I was able to incorporate it into the design of the card.  No biggie.

Here are the Copic markers I used on Out of This World:

C1, 3, 5
W4, 6, 8
E0000, 310, 35
E44, 47, 49
R2, 17
B01, 16

I also used the new Lights Out by Lawn Fawn and this is what I stamped on the inside of the card.  It glows as well as the front of the card.  This feature is a hit with the kids!

Birthday Memories - Raccoon

I've used the Birthday Memories designer series papers from Stampin' Up! to create this project and followed a card layout by Kimberly Van Diepen.  I also used some Make it Crafty chipboard embellishments for the sentiment and a couple gems for sparkle.  Instead of using the chef, I used the raccoon from the paper series and centered it over the sentiment. I like the orange in this one.

Paper Quilting

So I haven't been able to finish my real quilt but I was able to finish this paper quilt and feel almost as good about.  This one was so much fun and I didn't think it needed any sentiment or focal image. I did, however, add a lace doily and popped it up on foam for some dimension.  I made this one along with the one from a couple days ago so they use the same papers.  It was easy to cut out two at the same time.  The tutorial is by Lawn Fawn and is "How to make a Paper Quilt." Enjoy!
