30 Day Coloring Challenge- Day2

I'm really excited to have some time to play along with Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge this time! Every time she's done it in the past life has always seemed to get in the way for me. Yesterday's colored images are waiting to be made into cards still. For Day 2, I colored up the Stampendous Cling Seashell Jar with alcohol markers and colored pencils. The sentiment is from the Stampendous Ocean Wisdom Clear Set. 

Supplies Used: Stampendous Ocean Wisdom, Seashell Jar

About a week ago I posted a photo to instagram of lots and lots of circles I cut using Kat Scrappiness Double Stitched Dies. Today I finally finished the layout! 

I taped the dies together so they would cut exactly the same size for each color and then cut a rainbow of colors. The hardest part of assembling the rainbow in the same color order. I kept messing up my circles, LOL! 

I used the Paper Smooches Paw Print die to create a mask and ink paw prints on my green paper. The "happy" is from Paper Smooches Happy Birthday Die set and cut from fun foam. The foam allows you to bend your words a bit and add whimsy.

The base of the layout is an acrylic XL Heart from Clear Scraps. I sanded both the front and back to give it a frosted look.

Supplies used: 
Paper Smooches Dies - Pawprints, Happy Birthday
Clear Scrap Acrylic XL Hearts
Jillybean soup Frames
7Gypsies, Kaiser Kraft and American Craft  stickers

Ferrets and Valentines Day...

Today I'm sharing another card I made using Paper Smooches Feb Challenge image as inspiration. This time instead of flowers, I filled the heart with paw prints. 

I die cut Paper Smooches Paw Prints from a heart and then filled the spaces with paw prints die cut from black/grey cardstock. I built up the scallop heart with circle die cuts again. (see last post)

The ferret stamps are actually otters from the Poppy Stamps Christmas Friends set. As soon as I saw that set, I ordered it because I knew they could be transformed into ferrets. There's not too many ferret stamps out there and you have to get creative ;) 

Here's a picture of my cuties, Goose and Bug that were my models for coloring.

You Are Loved

I am loving this months Paper Smooches Inspiration Challenge! I thought it would be cool to recreate the image with die cuts. 

Here is my card I created using just hearts and dots die cuts. I had so much fun with this!!

Using the Paper Smooches Paw Prints Die Set(for the heart), You Are Loved Die Set, Ocean Scene Die Set (for the circles) I cut LOTS of hearts and dots in various colors. I may have gone a bit over board but I have a layout dreamed up. Note to self: I really need to get a confetti die with these shapes, LOL!

Using the heart die, I created flowers and leaves. Cut the green hearts in half and you have leaves for fronds. 

The flowers were created by arranging 3 or 5 hearts and then either adding circle dots for detail. I layered up multiple You Are Loved die cuts, glued them together and gave them a coating of glitter. 

And finally, I didn't have a scalloped heart die cut, so I added circle die cuts all around the back of the heart to create a scallop edge. Here's a peek at the back...

Paper Smooches Guest Designer

Today is my last post as Paper Smooches Guest Designer for January. Thank you so much to Kim and Paper Smooches for the amazing opportunity!!!

For this first card, I did a lot of masking with the llama stamp in Courteous Cuties to create this cute scene. The bow tie is from Chilly Chums. I couldn't stop singing the llama song when I created this, LOL!
