The Greeting Farm - Boba Anya

Hi everyone, Jo here. Today's card features Boba Anya from The Greeting Farm
I'm addicted to Boba Tea. If you haven't tried it, you are missing out, lol. I had the perfect digital designer paper called Boba Life by Mindy T Designs. I spelled out the word BOBA with some alphabet dies and made it into a shaker window. I added some Brown Confetti Sprinkles from Kat Scrappiness and now it truly looks like the little tapioca pearls in the drink. 

I normally color my images with Copic markers but I decided to give them a rest for a bit. Here, she is colored with Zig Kuretake Clean Color Real Brush Markers, watercolor markers. I stamped her on Bristol Smooth watercolor paper with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

Some Odd Girl - Chinese Zodiac Snake

Happy Friday! This card is for Some Odd Girl  using Chinese Zodiac Snake.

Have you picked up this cutie yet? Calling him a cutie is difficult for me because I hate snakes! LOL This guy is an exception =) I struggled to find an appropriate sentiment but luckily my friend gave me an idea. Thanks girl! So I turned the sentiment into a shaker window and I love how it turned out. Hope you all give this guy a chance! He is colored with Copic markers.

Kat Scrappiness - Movie Night

This was so fun to make using the TV Shaker Card Kit. These kits make creating shaker cards so easy. The image is from The Greeting Farm (Couple Goals), the stamped alphabets are from Lawn Fawn (Milo's ABCs) and the paper is from Echo Park (We Are Family). I used several Kat Scrappiness dies to put this card together.

Some Odd Girl - Mermaid Ponytail

Hello again! This card is for Some Odd Girl  using the newest addition Mermaid Ponytail alongside with JellyFish.

It's Mer-May and I am loving all the mermaid inspiration this month. Here the images are colored with Copic markers. With digital images you have the freedom to layer images and create your own scene. I thought that the JellyFish digital image would be fun to pair with her. The sentiment I chose is stamped on top of her tail. I made a shaker window using an oval cover plate die. The card is finished off with a variety of sequins and yellow heart sprinkles.

Some Odd Girl - Mermaid Tunes

Hello again! This card is for Some Odd Girl  using the newly released Mermaid Tunes Digital Stamp. It's MerMay over at Some Odd Girl this week.  

I created this background using Distress Oxide Inks (Fired Brick, Fossilized Amber) using masking techniques. I really didn't know how to start but I had a vision in my head LOL. I placed a circle mask at the top corner then I came in with a straight mask and started to apply the first layer of Fossilized Amber. Then I came in with Fired Brick, trying to blend the colors together. After that was done, I masked off the sun rays area and began the same process for the Sun. Mermaid Tunes is colored with Copic markers. The sentiment is from mama Elephant and the little notes are from Penguin Palace.

Penguin Palace - Let's Get Crafty

Hello everyone! Today's card is for Penguin Palace Stamps using the Let's Get Crafty Stamp Set and other PP products.

I created a rainbow colored background using Distress Oxide Inks (Fired Brick, Dried Marigold, Fossilized Amber, Lucky Clover, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet). The inks were applied over the Vintage Basket stencil. For added interest to the cardstock, I used the Dots Meet Dashes (LG) rectangle die for the stitching detail on the border. The images are all colored with Copic markers.

Penguin Palace - Wash Your Worries Away

Hello and Happy Friday! Today's card features Day 5 of the  Penguin Palace Stamps new release. I used the new Classic Diamonds Backdrop - Stand Alone Die and the Hot Mama Clear Stamp w/coordinating dies.

I paired this new die with the stamp set Hot Mama, using the backdrop to mimic kitchen/bathroom tiles. I blended Dr. PH Martin's watercolors together to get that gradient background effect.

Kat Scrappiness March Release - Day 2

Welcome back everyone! Today I am featuring products from the Kat Scrappiness 
March Release Day 2.
I love the font of this sentiment die. For this particular project, I did not use the coordinating shadow die but just the sentiment itself. I paired it up with stitched outline bunny dies from Kat Scrappiness. They make the cutest shape, like Peeps the marshmallow candy. I used an oval die to mimic an egg shape, it goes well with the sequin mix. To add even more cuteness, I placed a pink pom pom, part of the release, as the bunny tail.

Happy Easter Sentiment w/Shadow Die:

Kat Scrappiness March Release - Day 1

Hi everyone! Today I am featuring products from the Kat Scrappiness 
March Release Day 1.



This stamp set was a joy to work with. It comes with a large and small bunny image and you have two face options for both sizes. Here on my project, I stamped both bunnies and chose to keep them simple, sans the accessories. I made a shaker card (not a surprise LOL) using the new Carrot Sprinkles. I used a mixture of old and new dies.
