For my card today I used the adorable new Wee image called Goldie. Colleen Schaan had recently posted a gorgeously colored mermaid on her blog and I knew I wanted to try out the look and the colors she chose. So I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed it with a Classic Square Nestabilities die. die and colored it with Copic Markers (Skin: E000, BG000, B00   Dots: G14, G17, BG57   Scales: G12, G14, G17   Hair: B21, B24, B26, B29, G12, G15   Bubbles: YG000, G00). The image was stitched to a piece of Coordination cardstock, cut and embossed with a Scalloped Square Nestabilities die.

A piece of Bo Bunny Barefoot & Bliss patterned paper was cut and embossed with a  Grand Square Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded before Aqua May Arts Ribbon was tied around the paper. The layer was then adhered to the card base, a 4 9/16″ x  9 1/8″ piece of Solar White cardstock folded in half.

A sentiment from the new Ticket Notes was stamped in Tuxedo Black Ink on white cardstock, cut it out and colored it with Copic Markers BG000 and G12. It was tied on to the ribbon bow with embroidery thread and a button. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl was adhered over the bow, and part of a Fancy Waves Border Bling was added to the lower right corner to finish off the card.

Little Darlings stamps is releasing a new collection today called Spring is in the Air. To introduce the four new darling stamps, the design team and a few guest designers are having a blog hop. The hop coincides with the Little Darlings challenge and the theme Spring Colors.

For my first sample I used the new image called Buddies. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Classic Square Nestabilities die. The image was colored with Copic Markers (Skin: E00, E11, E13  Hair: N5, N7, N9   Jeans: B0000, B91, B93, B95, B97   shirt/frog: YG21, YG23, YG17   Hat: Y23, Y26, Y28, E33   Net: C00, C1, C3, C5    Ground: G43, G46, E31).

It was masked, cloud masks were added and the background was airbrushed with Copic Marker BG01.  Shading was added to the clouds with Copic Markers W00, W0 and W1. The square was adhered to a piece of Kraft cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Scallop Square Nestabilities die.

A 2 3/4″ x 4 1/2″ strip of Pebbles Happy Go Lucky Patterned paper was adhered to a 4 1/2″ square of Pebbles May Bouquet Collection. The layers were stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Solar White cardstock. Blue Organdy Ribbon was tied around the horizontal strip before the image was adhered over the center with dimensionals.

The wires of three Zva Creative flowers were twisted together. The ends were rolled up with the help of my paper piercer. Branches punched out of Pebbles paper were added to the flower bouquet and it was adhered to the lower left corner of the image. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl was adhered next to the flowers.

A sentiment from Whimsy’s Treasured Moments Tickets stamp set was stamped in Tuxedo Black Ink over a piece of cardstock that had been cut and embossed with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die. The sentiment was adhered above the flowers. The layers were adhered to the card base, Kraft cardstock cut and embossed with the second smallest  Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die.

For my second card I used the image Isn’t She Lovely. The girl was stamped in Tuxedo Black Ink on Solar White cardstock and colored with Copic Markers (Skin: E50, E51, E53    Hair: Y26, E33, E35, E37   Dress: R30, R32, R35    Shoes and Trim: W00, W0, W1   Hat: YR20, YR21, YR23    Purse: YG11, YG13, YG17). The image was cut out and set aside.

The card base was cut out of Solar White cardstock with the Tim’s large tag die. A piece of the new Echo Park Graceful This & That paper was cut slightly smaller. The edges were sanded and another piece of the same paper pack was added as a horizontal strip. The edges were then stitched and seam binding was tied around the strip. A heart doily was adhered to the left hand side of the card. The image was adhered over the doily with dimensionals.

A sentiment from Whimsy’s Friendship Ticket Sentiments was stamped over the oval that had been cut with the Large Tage and bookplates die. The oval was airbrushed with Copic Marker YR20, placed back into the bookplate frame and adhered partially under the girl frame. A butterfly from the same set was stamped on the same paper used for the card base and cut out. It was adhered to the lower right of the sentiment panel.

To finish off the card a button was tied on over the bow with Linen thread. One of Nina’s gorgeous new Fancy That Want2Scrap Border bling was adhered to the top of the card. A Rhinestone was added the right hand side of the bookplate and part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl underneath it.

I created this card along with a tutorial how I create masked clouds for the last Whimsy Magazine.  The Wee image Easter Bunny was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock.

The image was masked and cloud masks were added. The sky was airbrushed with Copic Marker BG01 and the clouds were colored with Copic Markers  (W00, W0, W1).

A 2″ x 5 1/4″ piece of My Mind’s Eye Follow Your Heart Be Happy paper was adhered to a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of the same paper pack. The bottom corners were rounded and the edges were sanded and stitched. Ribbon was tied around the vertical strip and topped with a button, tied on with Silver Curling ribbon. A paper doily was adhered to the upper right hand corner and the image was adhered to the layers with dimensionals.

The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Solar White cardstock, folded in half. The bottom corner were rounded and the layers were adhered on top. A sentiment from Friendship Notables 2 was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink, colored with Copic Markers Y00 and Y02 and adhered to the lower right of the layers. Parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl and additional Rhinestones finish off the card.

The image was airbrushed with Copic Marker B12, after I added a few dots with masking fluid. Once the background was airbrushed and the masking fluid rubbed off, I added Glossy Accents over the dots, hoping it would look a bit like spring rain.
