A Little Birdie Told Me

Happy Friday!  Today I'm sharing a sweet card using a fun stamp and die from SugarPea Designs.  I made this card ages ago but never got around to sharing it on my blog.




This cute image is from the Everyday Is Christmas stamp set.  I colored the image with copics and then diecut it using the coordinating dies.  I used the Zig Zag Stitched Circles to diecut the white cardstock circle.  I added a few enamel dots to finish my card. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Challenge #88 - Keywords

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a card I made for our latest challenge over at Always Playing With Paper's The Challenge.


Our challenge this week is a "keyword" challenge and I used the lovely Peony Bouquet stamp set from Altenew.  I started my card by using distress inks to create the blue background and then flicked some water for lighter spots.  I used the Gift Box Cover-Up Die-namic from My Favorite Things to diecut the window.  I adhered some acetate and added sequins to make a fun shaker card.  I used gold embossing powder to stamp the flower and sentiment.  I used distress inks to watercolor the flowers and then diecut them using the coordinating dies.


You can use as many of the keywords to create your card as you like.  I used all of them with the exception of birthday.  Be sure to stop by The Challenge to see what the rest of the DT created this week.  I hope you find some time to play along in the challenge.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita

Marker Pop Guest Designer

I'm excited to be joining the MarkerPOP design team as a guest designer today.  They have a new challenge so be sure to stop by the MarkerPOP Blog for all the details.


Their challenge theme is Summer Fun ... summer, 4th of July, picnics, camping, ice cream.  Well of course my mind went straight to popsicles, so I decided to use the adorable For You Anya by The Greeting Farm.  I started my card by stamping popsicles on a piece of cardstock and then I colored them with copics.  Then I stamped Anya and colored her with copics too.  Since my background paper seemed a little busy with all the popsicles, I kept the rest of my card clean and simple. 

Copics Used:
Skin - E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair - E44, E43, E42, E41, E40
