For my first card, I colored Peaches the Parrot to look like a green wing macaw because in my opinion, green wings are one of the most colorful of the macaws. After stamping, I used Copics to color him then over stamped to sharpen up the details again. A Pierced Oval die was used to cut him out & I had to do a little out of the box to keep from cutting off his tail. I used larger Ovals & Pierced Ovals to make a 2 layered frame around him. Portions of a Flourished Vine were added, cut out of the same green as the frame. The Happy Birthday was die cut once out of black & once out of white & stacked, a little offset.Here’s a look at the inside..the images & greeting are from the Little Birdies set. Below it are the Copics I used.

So how cute are these little Dinosaurs? Totally adorbs, I’d say! To me, the little guy in the middle looked like a baby w/ those big ol’ eyes of his, so I thought why not add a cracked Egg & complete the picture? The other two are either the proud parents or siblings. I used a die cut tree branch from the Who Loves You set & some fussy cut firs from the Happy Camper set to add a little scenery behind them. The blue clouds are from the Something Marvelous set.

The top white layer was die cut using the Double Stitched Rectangles & it was matted onto a piece of orange polka dot paper.  

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

Surprise! No orange Copics on baby. I just used a base of the Y18 & colored/shaded w/ the R21, R22 & R05 on top.

My last card, features the brand new Bunny die to go w/ the super cute Hippity Hoppity set. The challenge for me with this one was to try & make a card using a bunny & not have it be an Easter card.  So I stamped, colored & die cut 2 bunnies then made a bow tie for the boy (the bow from the Peaceful Poinsettias dies was the perfect size!) & a hair bow for the girl (from the Circle Ornaments dies).

I die cut the layers of white, blue & blue polka dot papers using Rectangle & Pierced Rectangle dies, then used a Circle die to cut out the opening on the side for the little girl bunny to peek around. The greeting circles were cut & I added some Mini Double Stitched Hearts below the greeting. It just looked a little blank in the right corner, so I added a white Gilded Gate across the bottom.

Here’s the inside, using some leftovers…originally, the greeting circles were bigger & I cut them down a size & these are the leftover rings. Below this are the Copics I used. bunny-love-inside-09912 bunny-love-copics-09905
