For her skin I used my copic marker E21 soft sun.
For the embossed background I used an older embossing folder I have in my collectio…

You're Flipping Amazing! (Purple Version) Beth Duff Designs

Hello there, I couldn't resist making another mermaid sequins flipping card in another color. I did a previous blog post where I did the exact same card just with blue. Find that blog post here You're flipping Amazing "Blue Version"

The images and sentiment are both from the seas the day stamp set. They were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  On the sentiment I used Simon Says Stamp clear embossing powder and set it with the Marvey heat tool.    The circle was created with the big shot machine and the Spellbinders nestabilities Standard circles Large dies.  I then colored the images and circle with Spectrum noir markers and a few comic markers too.  The Spectrum noir markers I used were  TB2,TN2 and the Copic colors I used were YG17 Grass Green, B24 Sky, Y15 cadmium yellow, YR04 Chrome orange, B02 Robins egg blue, YG03 yellow green, V04 Lilac and V17 Amethyst. As you can see part of the s…

Plane and Simple You're awesome

Happy Monday! I've got a fun card to share with you today using the plane and simple stamp set from Lawn Fawn.

I stamped the air plane, hearts and sentiment in Memento Tuxedo black ink. Then I colored the airplane in spectrum noir markers. I used CR11, BT7 and CT3 to color the airplane.  I used DR5 to color the hearts.  For the postcard embossed background I used I DR5 and BT5.  I also used vintage photo distress ink for the embossed postcard.  Of course I used my big shot machine to do the embossed postcard background.  For highlights on the image I used Sakura jelly roll 08 white pen.

The postcard embossed background is from a Tim Holtz embossing collection of 4 folders. I believe it's called mail.  I could not find a link to it I think it has been discontinued.  So sorry about that but I love these embossing folders and I need to use what I got when I feel inspired.

To adhere everything together I used  the scotch Advanced Tape Glider and the Xyron X sticker maker.

Super Simple Birthday Card

Howdy! Happy Thursday, I’ve got a simple birthday card I recently made.

For the embossed background I used the Cuttlebug Provo craft Swiss dots embossing folder. (I’m pretty sure this particular one is no longer available, I will link to a similar one) for the banners coming down I used some washi tape I had in my collection. Super simple.  
Then I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in memento tuxedo black ink. The stamp is an old one I can’t link too but there are so many great Birthday sentiment stamps out there. Find your favorite and put it to good use.  To finish off the sentiment I used the Spectrum noir marker TB5 to just go around the edges and make it stand out a little bit.  
Lastly I sponged Memento Tuxedo black ink around the card base and embossed background to make that also stand out a bit more.  Also to adhere everything together I used the scotch advanced tape glider.
