To make my Easter card, I started by white embossing the Marble Feathers Bg onto white card stock, then I used the Distress inks to sponge the color over it for a pretty pastel bg. The Three Ducks were stamped onto the X-Press it c/s and colored w/ Copics. I used my into the window die cutting technique to cut the frame, leaving the ducks attached to it at the bottom. 

I wanted the frame w/ the ducks to be elevated from the bg, so I used those leftover pieces & strips of c/s we all have & usually throw away, and glued them to the back side to add stability & depth. The Spring die was cut 3 times & stacked to match the depth of the frame.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Welcome to the January Blog Hop for Serendipity Stamps!

If you arrived here from Miriam’s blog, you’re in the right place..if not, you may want to head over there first.

The Prize – One $20 gift code will go to one random commenter from the blogs. So be sure  to visit all the blogs because you don’t know which one the winner will be drawn from. You have through SundayJan 22  to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on Jan 23 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Winter Wear & Winter Fun Backgrounds! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop! 

To make my Valentine card, I had a tag and little strip of water color background & thought the colors would be perfect for Valentine’s Day. I also had a little piece of white w/ the negative (left over part) of a die cut & trimmed the bottom to fit the tag; just to dress it up a bit. The Mini Scallop & Scroll dies were cut out of a paint chip I found w/ colors that went w/ my watercolor tag. One of the colors was “Coral Kiss” & I thought that went as well, so I left it. The little hearts were cut out using the Love die & the top 3/4 of the white panel was embossed w/ a woodgrain folder to add a little texture.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Don’t you just love these adorable little penguins? They look so happy! I couldn’t wait to color them…and I love giving them rosy little cheeks and bellies. I put together parts of two greeting (the little Thanks fit much better in the space than the cursive thanks that comes w/ the Much part) and layered a die cut Snow to go between the two words. The snowflake designer paper was split to let the other paper show through & I added some snowflakes from the Snowflake Reverse die. I had every intention of adding some stickles or sparkly gems to the snowflakes, but just totally forgot.

Here’s a look at the inside..I’ll add a greeting when I know who’ll be receiving it. Below it are the Copics I used. penguin-thanks-inside-00194
