Cute Koalas

Hello, Happy Tuesday! I'm officially in love with the Birthday Bonanza buddies!! I'm finally taking a slight break from the Painted Poppies bundle and I'm moving on to the Birthday Bonanza bundle. I wasn't planning on getting this set but the animals in this set are just way too cute to pass up. Today, I decided to use the cute koala and kind of make my own DSP.

I stamped Mr. Koala several times on a sheet of Shimmer White card stock. In the blank spaces I colored it with the light Pool Party marker and added some Granny Apple Green little stars. Aren't they all just so cute!!

The base of the card uses one of the sheets from the Birthday Bonanza DSP. Then I added my colored card stock of koalas on top. If you look closely you can see I added some Happiness Blooms enamel dots to the centers of some of the green stars.

The "Hello" sentiment is from Seriously the Best stamp set and the "friend" sentiment is from the Well Said stamp set. Friend was stamped and embossed with white embossing powder. Hello was stamped in Poppy Parade ink and then I fussy cut it out.

I just love the fun bright colors of this card. So are you in love with these guys yet??? Don't be surprised if you see some more card with these guys over the next few days! :)

Have a fabulous day!

Purple Poppies!

Hello! It's another Painted Poppy day! While I had this set on my desk, I've whipped up a bunch of cards, so I hope your ready to see a few more with this set. It's hard not to make a bunch of cards with this set and this pretty paper. I think this paper is one of my favorites from the Peaceful Poppies DSP. The colors are so bright and vibrant so I decided to pair it with a lighter Purple Posy poppy. Doesn't that color look so great with the DSP?

For the center of the flower, I colored it with wink of stella for extra shimmer. The leaves were cut out with Granny Apple Green and Mossy Meadow card stock. 

I also used a strip of DSP from the Golden Honey Specialty DSP from Sale-a-bration and a strip of Gold Glimmer paper for some extra sparkle!

For the sentiment I used the Well Said stamp set. Since there was some yellow in the DSP, I decided to stamp the sentiment on Pineapple Punch card stock. I love the extra "punch" it adds. :)

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day

Global Design Project #227 - Let It Grow

Happy Thursday! I'm playing along with the Global Design Project this week. This week's challenge is Let it Grow. So of course I have to use my new favorite set.... the Painted Poppies Bundle. 

I have several thank you cards to make so I have a few cards to share over the next few days with this set. I hope you don't get sick of this set!! :)

I used some of the pretty Peaceful Poppies DSP for the background. I just used the simple green stripe paper to show off the pretty flowers.

The flowers are layered on one of the dies from the Stitched So Sweetly set. Then I ran the Soft Sea Foam paper through the Big Shot with the subtle embossing folder. I did something fun with the leaves on the card below. I used the splatter stamp from the set and stamped it several times with Mossy Meadow and then stamped the leaf image on top and die cut. So it the leaves have a fun splatter look. The leaves on the card above are just stamped with the "blob" image from the set. I'm not sure what the technical name is for that stamp in the set, haha!

For the finishing touches, I added some ribbon from the Magnolia Ribbon combo pack, some basic adhesive sequins, Share What you Love pearls (retired) and wink of stella in the center of the flowers.

Stay tuned for some more flowers over the next few days!!

Have a wonderful day!
