Sunny Days Ahead

 I know many of you are shivering under sheets of ice and blankets of snow these days. I thought I'd bring out some sunny California cheers for those who are feeling like the warm weather may never come back!

This card features stamps, dies, and stencils from The Greetery "Destination" series, mostly from the "Destination: Summer" set. I love all of the small images that can easily be combined in any way you wish. I was going for a Southern California vibe with this card!

I inked the stencil using Distress Inks in Spun Sugar, Lemonade, and Tumbled Glass. The images are stamped with a variety of colored inks, but I mainly used Hero Arts Shadow Inks as those give me the best coverage on my stamps.

Sunny days are on the way! (I promise!)

This next card has more desert vibes. Think: Palm Springs meets Lake vibes. 

I hope you enjoyed a little but of sunshine!

You Make me a Happy Camper

 Hello and happy Monday. I'm over at the Topflight Stamps blog sharing this outdoorsy card. I have a card today that brings back great memories! As a child my family took many trips to the beautiful national parks in our country. We would always camp, never stay at a hotel. So stamp sets like "Happy Camper" from Jane's Doodles always speak to my inner child.

To create this card I first stamped the little stars on my cardstock panel and heat embossed them in Wow! Coconut embossing powder. Then I inked the sky to look like a dark night in the wilderness using Distress inks in Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord, and Tumbled Glass. I used a Lawn Fawn die for the grass and colored with Distress Inks Shabby Shutters and Crushed Olive.

 The images were all colored with Copic markers and fussy cut with my detail scissors. I popped the camper up with foam adhesive to help it stand out. Lastly, the darling sentiment and arrows were stamped to the bottom of the card.

Thanks for stopping in! Happy camping!

Happy Mail Card

The Happy Mail Critters set from Time for Tea Designs is perfect for creating simple cards for friends. I colored the darling images with Copic markers and stamped the sentiment with Prism Ink in French Navy. The animals in this set are so cute and the additional images make creating scenes super easy.
