I wanted to try a new color combo with Birch Press layering dies. These dies create such a cool effect. I love how this card turned out. I can't wait to make a few more!
No copics today
Whipper Snapper stamps is preparing their new release. I'm so excited! I love their stamps. My favorite of the bunch is this elephant named Hanno. He is carrying a delicious cupcake. I made a video showing you how I colored up this cutie.
Below you can find the list of copic colors used to create this project.

I've been pushing myself to use my stencils a little bit more. They are really easy to use, but for some reason I just don't think to use them. I love how the fun background it created for these two crazy birds. What do you think?
Stencil is from Taylored Expressions
Is it really that time a year again? I see so many social media posts about people starting their Christmas cards. YIKES! I admit, I joined in on the panic and dug out this cute image and colored it up. The elephants made it a bit more playful for me. Okay...so one done. I don't want to think past that!

I went a little old school today with my card. I think this embossing folder (by cuddlebug) might be 15 years old. I think it has held up over time. I'm glad I can still get some use out of it. The cake is from IO. You can see it by clicking here. It is a really nice stamp to have in your stash. I often stamp it on envelopes when sending out birthday cards.
It has been almost a month since I've posted. YIKES! I know I've said some of this before... but here is what I've been upto: I've definitely been busy spending as much time as possible outside. I was going a little stir crazy in the house during quarantine. Once summer arrived, I took every advantage of going outside. We still have been quarantining, but we moved our family to the lake. It has slowed my card making process down considerably, but it is a small price to pay for some sanity. I hope you are soaking up the sun and finding ways to keep your mind and body healthy. I will do my best to not let another month creep by without stopping in and sharing something crafty.
I made this card about a year ago, but it was another one that slipped through the cracks. I love summer cards. This fox has looks about as comfortable as you can get. I used one of my favorite stamp sets to create the water in the background. This set makes creating water scenes a breeze.
