    Carnival Cupcakes

    Happy Monday, my friends! =) I am sharing a card made using a combination of stamps and dies from Mama Elephant and Paper Smooches.


    I did the fun ink smooshing technique for the background with Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn and Squeezed Lemonade distress inks. You can see a video of how it's done here by the fabulous Laura Bassen and here is another one (this is the method that I used) by the amazing Betsy Veldman.


    Mr. Bear Cupcake is from Mama Elephant's Carnival Cupcakes set. They are stamped with Antique Linen distress ink and colored with Copic markers for the no-line coloring look.


    The background piece is die cut using a die from Mama Elephant's Landscape Trio die set and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches Sugar Rush set.

    Monochrome

    Happy Weekend, my friends! =) I finally got some awesome stamps from Waffle Flower and thought that I'd play along with their challenge.


    Sorry for the total disregard of how these animals' colors should be, but it was too fun not to do this! =) Here is the inspiration photo that Waffle Flower Challenge provided.


    I tried to match the colors for my card and was surprised that I don't have closer colors for the teal and the rosy purple. How did that happen? Must go on ink pad hunt!! =)


    All the stamps are from the super fun Monochrome set. If you haven't already, go and check out Waffle Flower and their blog for some fun products and inspiration!

    That's it for now. Have a fabulous day, my friends! =)

    Mo's Digital Pencil Monthly Blog Hop

    Hi and welcome to Mo's Digital Pencil Monthly Blog Hop! If you arrived from Heidy's blog, you are on the right track. If not, you can start the hop from Julie's blog! Here is my card.


    This month's host is Julie and her challenge theme is Easter. I didn't make a Easter card, instead, I made a springy card. I thought this would be a great alternative for those that do not participate or celebrate Easter. =)


    The image that I used is Erin and she is printed on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock. I colored her skin and the ground with Copic markers and colored the rest of the image with Prismacolor colored pencils.


    The patterned paper is from Studio Calico's Brighton Pier 6x6 Paper Pad. The thanks die is from Paper Smooches and the shamrock die is from My Favorite Things.

    That's it for now. It's time to send you to Vili's blog! Don't forget to leave comments along the way. TWO lucky commenters will each receive a $5 gift certificate to use in Mo's Digital Pencil!

    Have fun hopping and thanks for stopping by!
