Great Friends Make Great Stories

Hi everyone!  I'm so excited to share this fun slimline card featuring these adorably smart critters from the "Read, Relax, Repeat" stamp set.         The fun part of this card was using some fun scraps to paper piece the cozy armchair and that sassy bunny's dress.  I also used pattered paper scraps to frame the image and create a carpeted floor.         Don't you adore this little turtleneck wearing mouse? So adorable.         And I had to color the bunny's hair something funky... because she's cool like that!  These characters are so fun and go great together or on...

Hi everyone! It's sneak peek week and I'm starting off with this incredibly adorable "Friendly Koalas" stamp set.  This set features three adorable little characters that are sure to brighten anyone's day!     For, this card, I wanted to use everything! LOL. I started by coloring the background by using the "Bamboo" stencil.  Now the stencil is only 6" x 6", so how do you use it on a slimline? (See below.)

Under the Sea 🧜🏾‍♀️

Posted by Julissa Padilla on

Summer is here and the ocean is calling.  This new "Salty but Sweet" stamp set is totally done adulting and ready for the ocean!  It's so easy to make such a fun background using the "Under the Sea" digital background.  Here's a quick step-by-step of coloring these fun digital backgrounds.     Step 1.  Although I love the look of Copics, I wanted to keep the larger open space easy to color.  I combined three Distress Inks:  Tumbled Glass, Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon.  Mainly filling in the center with the two lighter colors, and the Mermaid Lagoon on the...
