I adore this sweet Tweetie Pies Stamp set...I just had to ink this girl for the Things with Wings KKS Challenge # 373. I coloured her and her feathered friend up with my copics, cut the image out with the Pierced Traditional Tags STAX Die-namics, left the image in the die and inked with Tumbled Glass and Shabby Shutters Distress inks. I added in some grass and ground with my Prismcolor Pencils. I also stamped the adorable little clouds from the Darling Dragons stamp set, coloured them with my Copics, fussy cut them out and popped them up on the tag.

I did more "Smooshing"...I'm a little obsessed with this easy technique...this time with my Peerless Watercolors, then used the pretty blue "smooshed" paper for the background panel and cut the Reverse Confetti Wreaths Confetti Cuts from the "smooshed" paper too. I stamped a sentiment from the Tweetie Pies stamp set with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink and heat embossed it with Zing White Embossing powder. I tied some blue AC Twine on the tag and embellished sprinkling of sparkly blue Gumdrops.  
 Thanks SO much for stopping by and havin' a wee peek at my card for the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge # 373 - Things with Wings.

Curtain Call Challenge March 15 - Fluffy & Reverse Confetti - Whole Lotta Happy


Hello Stampin' friends! Welcome to the March 15th Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Fluffy. When I started making my card for this challenge I was taking inspiration from the pillow in the bottom lefthand side of the photo but this card ended up going in a different direction than planned. That's okay...I'm still happy with how my St. Patrick's Day card turned out and you have the flexibility to use the inspirational photo or Anything Goes.    



I used MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Spearmint and Whip Cream

I made more paper with the "Smooshing Technique" with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink and cut it Big Stripes Cover Panel Confetti Cuts. I layered it over the Spearmint Heavyweight Cardstock. I stamped the word "Happy" from the Whole Lotta Happy Stamp set on Whip Cream Heavyweight Carstock cut with the Lacey Scallop Circle panel and popped it up in the circle opening in the Big Stripes Cover panel.  I stamped the second part of the sentiment from the Whole Lotta Happy Stamp set on Whip Cream Heavyweight Cardstock and cut with a Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strip.

I made my own little shamrock with the small heart die from the Stamped Note Confetti Cuts. I just used the outline and adhered them together.  I embellished with some green glittery YNS Gumdrops and Hemp Twine. 
Thanks SO much for stopping by and havin' a little look at my card for the March 15th Curtain Call Challenge - Fluffy!

For my Krafty Hop card I did a little "smooshing" again...(sorry but I can't get enough of this fun and easy technique) with Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet.  I inked up the Darling Dragons again and coloured up this little dragon...she's my fave...with my Copics! 
I wanted to make a special birthday card so I whipped up an easy shaker tag with the Reverse Confetti Thanks Confetti Cuts and Shakers 'N Frames Confetti Cuts. I did a little masking with this Darling Dragon so she is holding the cloud balloon and then popped her up on the shaker tag. I tied the tag with AC Purple Hemp twine and embellished with a smattering of purple YNS Gumdrops.

I stamped a sentiment from the Darling Dragons Stamp set with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink and then heat embossed with Zing White Embossing powder. There are so many cute accessory stamps in this set...I added a few little clouds and a bow to the balloon string.  In this detail shot you can see the Shaker tag has pink and lilac micro-beads and I used the Reverse Confetti Shaker 'N Frames Confetti Cuts to cut the tiny shapes from purple glitter paper. 
Thanks SO much for stopping by and havin' a wee peek at my Krafty Hop card with the NEW Darling Dragons Stamp set for the March Release Krafty Hop
