Balloon Lucy

I coloured up the gorgeous  Balloon Lucy by CC Designs and created a clean and simple card with her.

I decided to go bold and bright and I really like the way it turned out :)

I also stamped one of the sayings from the Birthday Wishes Sentiments next to her and I used the
Rectangles #1 Die to cut it out.
After I had done that though, I decided that I actually wanted a skinnier rectangle, so I cut off the sides.  I really like the look of the stitching just at the top and bottom anyway :)

Stamps : Balloon Lucy, Birthday wishes sentiments
Card : x-press it, slate, grey, bella Blvd stars
Ink : memento black
Other : rectangles #1 die, copics

Copics used :
RV 23, 25
YR 14, 16, 18

Party Kitty

I have been making a lot of bold and bright cards lately
but I have a very soft and sweet card to share with you today.

This is Party Kitty  from the newest release at CC Designs.
I love this little cutie :)

I like to colour balloons with soft colours and make them appear translucent.
And I was happy how this bunch of balloons turned out.
I then spronged on a cloudy sky, cut the piece into a rectangle and sponged some linen distress ink around the edges.
Then I mounted it onto the Scalloped Rectangles Die.

Ingredients :

Stamps : Party Kitty
Card : x-press it, kraft card, blushing bride core-dinations
Ink : memento black, antique linen DI, pool party
Other : Scalloped rectangles die, sweet die (Whimsy), music ef. (Spellbinders)

Balloon Boy

It's nearly time for another fabulous release of stamps at CC Designs!
The Design Team are showcasing Roberto's Rascals stamps today and I'm giving you a sneak peek of this gorgeous little guy.
This is Balloon Boy.
And I love him so much!  Isn't he the cutest?!

I coloured this cute stamp with Copics and cut it out.
Then I created a background for him using watercolour paper and various Distress Inks, water splodges, flicks of white paint and some black enamel accents.
And I was really happy with how it turned out :)
I used the Make a Card #6 Die to cut a tag out of it.
And I decided to keep the card clean and simple to keep the focus on Balloon Boy and the tag.

The white piece was cut out using the Make a Card #14 Die
and I also used the Birthday Wishes Sentiments Stamp Set.

Copics used :

Y 13, 15
YG 01, 11, 13

Cinnamon with Bunnies

I have another card for CC Designs to share with you today.
This stamp is called Cinnamon with Bunnies and these three are so adorable aren't they?!

I coloured them with Copics and used the Rectangles #1 Die to cut them out.
Then I white embossed the sentiment from the Sweet Spring Sentiments set and cut it out with the Layering Tags Die.

It is such a cute image and I thought it went perfectly with this Bella Blvd paper from the Sweet Baby Girl Collection.  And then I added a trio of pink buttons for even more cuteness :)

Send a smile for kids : Animal cards
Word Art Wednesday : anything goes with a sentiment

Sweet Bunny

I have another cutie from the new CC Designs release to share with you today :)
This one is called Sweet Bunny.
And she is adorable isn't she?!

I actually stamped the bunny in Adirondack Espresso die ink.
I always use memento tuxedo black when colouring with copics but I had been thinking for a while that I should buy a brown colour as well.  Then I was searching through some old crafty stuff and found this pad from years and years ago and it worked beautifully still. I'm so glad I found this in my crafty stash!  It's amazing what you can find if you actually look :) 
I coloured her with Copics and cut her out and then placed her on a Scalloped Circle diecut.
I made the banner using the Make a Banner die, but I made it longer.
The hugs and kisses are from the Make a Card #12 Smoochies Die and the sentiment is from the Celebrate stamp set.
Paper is Love you madly by Glitz

Copics used :
E 41, 43, 44
R 000, 00, 20, 22, 24, 30
