yay! let's get into day 2!
my first card uses the adorable owl from tho set!


all of the images were stamped and die cut out! I colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then added some highlights and details with my white gel pen! you know I love that!
the branch image is from What a Hoot! LOVE how versatile all of these sets are! they work so well together!


I used the Sky Borders Die Set along with Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks to create the cloudy sky! then I splattered on some color and clean water to add texture!
that sleepy owl is just TOO CUTE holding the coffee!

my second card features Newton and I seriously LOVE that little heart shape, so he's holding it along with the teddy bear by his feet!


to create the background, I used the Darling Hearts Die as a stencil then did ink blending in many Distress Oxide Inks to create the rainbow feel!


I layered some white embossing paste with the new Tumbled Hearts stencils and selectively added some hearts in various sizes around the card! it's so FUN!
then I heat embossed the sentiment in white onto a banner of black cardstock.

Reverse Confetti January Sketch For You To Try

hello! what a fun day!

today i have this card up on the Reverse Confetti blog! I am playing along with the January SFYTT!
here's the fun sketch:




LOVE it!
I did the totally 'sam' style with this sketch, and used various mixed media things to incorporate the sketch!
ok ok ok, here's my card:



yay! 
those CUTE little cheetahs from the new Heart Spots stamp set just steal the show! I colored them with Copics, then used the coordinating dies to cut them out! then I added some whimsy to the images with details with the white gel pen!
oh yeah! and the sentiment is from the new Heart Filled Sentiments set!



I used Distress Inks in Spiced Marmelade, Mustard Seed and Squeezed Lemonade to blend the circle area, then a thin lined stencil with white embossing paste to be the green rectangle part of the sketch!
the sentiment banner is represents the grey rectangle and my splatters and sequins are the tiny yellow dots of the sketch!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #21 - Mood Board

yahooo! it's time for a NEW challenge over at the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge blog!



this is perhaps the pretties winter mood board ever!




i was completely inspired by the glistening snow, the hearts and the glitter!!! 



eek! i just love it!!!

the narwhal is from the Critters in the Arctic set, and he's SO SWEET! I love him! I colored him and the hearts from Push Here with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, then fussy cut them out! 
the title was created by using the Harold's ABCs stamps and Cole's ABCs dies! LOVE them! I die cut the 'narly' word 6 times and layered them all on top of each other for some height! 




the background was created by using some Heidi Swapp Reactive Paint, which I painted onto the background of a white piece of cardstock. then I sprinkled on glitter in white and silver, but not on all of it. once it was dry completely, I put a piece of silver foil on top and ran it through my laminator! so it gradually changes from white glitter to silver glitter to silver foil! LOVE how it looks!! 

oh, i really can't WAIT for you to play along! you could win a $25 gift certificate to Lawn Fawn!!!!

enjoy!
