Card-a-Copia: Spring Greetings!

I don't actually celebrate Easter, but there's nothing wrong with a super cute Spring card, right?  (It is also quite handy to have a SPRING card to send since today is Easter Sunday!)  This image comes from A Day for Daisies --- love it!   

Stamps:  Bunny in a Rose (A Day for Daisies)
Inks:  Copics, Groovy Guava (Stampin' Up!), "Tea Dye" Distress Ink (Ranger)
Paper:  I Do "Gerber Daisies" (American Crafts), Peachy Keen "My Oh My" (American Crafts)
Misc.:  ribbons (Michael's), sentiment (computer generated), Sakura Gelly Roll Clear Star pen

May the (stale) Peeps be with you!

Card-a-Copia: Gnome Time and Time for You

I created this little gem from a Birdie Brown digital image called Gnome Boy - Fall.  I know it isn't Fall, but Fall is my favorite season and since Spring just isn't interested in hanging out here in Seattle, I went with something I like!

Only three weeks until Spring Break.  I'm so ready!  I bought myself a Workbox from The Original Workbox and have set aside an entire day to put it together.  (Add in the ungodly amount of time it took to get the five hundred pounds of incredibly heavy materials from the pallet that was dropped off in my driveway, and the whole process will have taken a minimum of three weeks to assemble!!)

Stamp:  Gnome Boy - Fall (Birdie Brown)
Inks:  Copics, More Mustard (Stampin' Up!)
Paper:  unknown Bo Bunny
Misc.:  ribbon (Michael's), wooden bird (Studio Calico), sentiment (computer generated)

I created this little card for a design team application.  A Day for Daisies designer, Sami, has some really cute images.  I paper-pieced the garment on this image and inked the flower to match the paper.

Stamps:  Comfy Coacao (A Day for Daisies)
Inks:  Copics
Paper:  green and black (Core d'inations), pattern (KaiserCraft)
Misc.:  ribbon (Michael's), flower (Prima), pearls (K & Co.), sentiment (computer generated)

Card-a-Copia: Birthday Wishes a la BirdieBrown

Just a quick post to show the 5 1/2" X 5 1/2" birthday card I created for my niece's birthday coming up in a few weeks.  I used one of my favorite artist's images (Torico/BirdieBrown) and lots of COLOR!  I'm entering it into her birthday card challenge.

The main focal image is embedded in the openings on the front.  Some of the circles from the patterned paper were cut out and added to the card to give the whole thing more dimension.  I colored the robot and then added Glossy Accents to make her look like she's fresh off the assembly line!

I added the sentiment and the heart before I printed out the image.

I'll update later with the patterned papers I used.

Stamp:  Robot With Balloon (BirdieBrown)
Inks:  Copics
Papers:  green and black (Core'dinations)
Misc.:  Glossy Accents (Stampin' Up!), rhinestones (Michael's)
