Celebrate with Hippo

Hi! Hope you all are doing great. Today, I'm sharing this cute birthday card featuring cutie hippo from My Favorite Things - BB Happy Hippos. It's one of my most favorite birthday themed stamps set. I used this week's MFT Color Challenge #86 and MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #369 to make this card.

I stamped the images and colored them using distress inks. Then, I cut them out with the coordinating dies. I love the three little tweety birds from this set. They are super adorable!

Next, I used the MFT Small Brick Wall stencil to create a bricked background. I inked up the stencil using two different shades of green distress inks. Then, I used MFT Stitched Circle die to cut out two circle frame window and inked the edges with distress ink. I adhered a piece of vellum in between the two circle frames to give a subtle brick background.

I made the 'celebrate' sentiment using Little Lowercase Letters dies. I adhered the letters on a piece of vellum using the glue pen. I finished off the card by adhering all the elements in place. I'm also entering this on the MFT monthly Birthday Project - Celebrate Good Times

Hope you all like it and thank you so much for stopping by! :)

Birdie Happy Birthday

Hello! I'm sharing this simple one layer birthday card featuring little birdie from Gerda Steiner Design - Hoppines stamp set.

I love the wood fence image from this set. I stamped it several time and on top of the fence I stamped the birdie. I colored them using distress inks. Next, I masked the images and inked the background using distress inks. Finished off the card with the sentiment.

Thank you so much for stopping by! :)

Great Job!

Hi There! I'm sharing a quick card today. I love kraft color and it's been a while since I used kraft as a base for my cards. I love using kraft as it goes well with any primary colors. Here is one for you...

I did a background stamping using the little school themed images from Paper Smooches - Smarty Pants stamp set. They are just adorable. I dabbed the edges with distress ink and set as the base card. Next, I stamped on the professor image from the same stamp set and colored him using Copic markers. I have a very limited count of copic markers on hand :| . I think I did a better job! :P

Then, I had this pre-cut speech bubble in my stash so I used it to stamp on the sentiment. Finished off by adding some glossy accent on his huge bubbly eyes. A quick and simple card! I hope you all like it!

I'm playing along...

Thank you so much for stopping by! :)

I'm here for you...

Hello! Hope you all had a great holiday. Wish you all a happy new year! :) We are blessed with a baby boy recently so I took a little break from crafting and blogging. Here I'm back with my first card for this year!

I colored the two little bears from MFT BB Bitty Bears using distress inks and cut them using coordinating die. I used the sentiment from the same stamps set. Then, I create a frame using the Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frame die from MFT. It's one of my most favorite die frame which was in my wish list for a l-o-n-g time. I just had it recently and here I'm using it for this card :)

Next, I create a rainy background by blending distress inks and splashed few drops of water. I trimmed out a yellow color side panel and used the Staggered Hearts stencil to create a background full of hearts. I picked  a similar color of distress ink to fill in the the little hearts. I love how it turned out. Looking so lovely :)

That's all for this card. Hope you like it! :)

I used the color palette from the MFT color challenge and the sketch from MFT Wednesday Sketch challenge. But, now it's too late to post this card on the sketch challenge as it was over. Anyway, I'm still in the color challenge :)
