Happy Pink Birthday!

Hello there!

I’ve been lazy for a few days due to a cold wave in Taiwan. When I saw the sketch from My Favorite Things, I had an idea to create a flop birthday card for a lucky girl.

Here is how I used the sketch…

  1. Create a side-fold A2 card base with Bubble Gum card stock.
  2. Position flop card die (one of my new goodies) on A2 card base and die cut. Score a valley fold along the line that die provides.
  3. Die cut square panel from watercolor paper and blend Distress Worm Lipstick Oxide Ink with mini cloud stencil.
  4. Stamp, die cut and color images with Copic markers.
  5. Mat square panel with the card base and adhere to card front.
  6. Layer and adhere the images.
  7. Repeat steps 3, 4, 5 and 6 with a rectangle die to create the interior scene. Stamp sentiment on the rectangle panel with black ink.

Happy New Year!

I am thrilled that it’s my first DT post at CAS Colours & Sketches. I am looking forward to having fun with the DT at CC&S and you!

This month our hostess is Beverley and this week she has come up with this wonderful sketch to inspire us. (tap the figure below for the details at CC&S)

Here is how I used the sketch…

  1. Roses All Over Background was stamped on A2 card base with Wild Honey Distress Oxide.
  2. White card stock was cut with Wonky Stitched Rectangle die as the front panel.
  3. The front panel was cut with Stitched Basic Edge.
  4. The two pieces were separated a bit to form a gap and were adhered with foam tapes on A2 card base.
  5. The band-aid was die cut from Kraft card stock and was adhered over the gap.
  6. The doodle eyes were adhered on the band-aid.

Actually, I created the second one with this Sketch. Which one do you prefer?
