You're Fintastic Trio

Hello everyone,

It is a beautiful sunny day here today! A perfect day to do some midday coloring to get out of the heat for a little while. I saw this adorable Lawn Fawn card the other day by Elise using the Lawn Fawn Fintastic Friends stamp set. I had no thinking power today so I basically copied her design with very little variation. When all was said and done I ended up with 3 super cute cards. Thanks for the idea Elise!

First up here is Elise's card:

After stamping and die cutting these sweet images, I colored them in a rainbow of sweet colors using my copic markers. I used my colorless blender to give some of those sweet fish some tone on tone polka dots. The bubbles were stamped in a variety of inks from Simon Says Stamp, Lawn Fawn and Hero Arts. On the first card I used the Lawn Fawn Rectangle stitched die to cut out my panel. At the end all fish were of course colored with my clear Wink of Stella marker to give them a pretty shimmer. 

Now for my 3 cards:

Inside of cards:
Close Up of those cutie pie fish! Tried to get some of that sparkle to show!

Just can't get enough of those cutie pie rainbow fish!

Thanks for stopping in today!

MFT Funky Flowers

Hi there,

I am doing a quick post today to share a retirement card for a dear colleague featuring the MFT Funky Flowers. There are so many amazing examples out there using this stamp set and I can't wait to play with it some more. I was inspired by a number of those cards and used a blend of those ideas to come up with my card. I also used the Hero Arts Pinstripe background stamp and a Mama Elephant stamp set called Make a Wish for the greeting on the outside of the card. On the inside of the card I used the Sending and Wishing stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I used copic markers to color in the flowers and leaves.

Here is the inside. I made it into a tri-fold so there was room for all of our staff to sign.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenge:

Simon Says Stamp - anything goes

Have a blessed day,
