The Greeting Farm: Sending Hugs

 Hello cradfty friends. Who doesn't want to receive a hug?  Especially from this cute guy! 

Today I'm on The Greeting Farm blog sharing a card I created using one of the boys from the super cute set Like Like You. I combined it with the Cute Script sentiment set.  I love this sentiment set, you can combined it with any stamp set! 

The background was created by spraying Distress Oxides sprays into wet paper and drying with the heat tool.  I repeated this a few times until I was satisfied with the color blend.  I added Distress Crackle paste onto a diamond stencil to create a really cool effect.  I learned this technique on Creative Chick Distress ink classes (here).   

The sentiments were hear embossed in white.  Love how they look against the background.  

Image was colored witth Copic markers, die cut and raised with adhesive foam. Finished the card with a few enamel dots on the corner.  


Copic Used: 
Boy: Skim E13, E21, E00, Hair: E49, E47, E44, E42 Shirt: C3, C1, C00  Jeans: BV97, B95,B93, W3

Mama Elephant Birthday Celebration Challenge


I created a couple of cards for Mama Elephant 10th year birthday crafting challenge.  

For my 1st card I used one of the adorable Little Line Agenda set image. The image colored with Copic markers.  The background was created by using Distress Oxides sprays and water.  I also used the Big Happy Birthday die and cut it in 2 different colors with the black on the bottom to make it pop.  All elements were riased with foam adhesive. I cut the background with the Mod Heart Die .  I finished this card with a few glass beads.  

For my 2nd card I used another adorable set  Celebration Hamsters  (all ME stamps are adorable!)   I ink blended the background with Distress Ink Oxides and to create the sky.  I stenciled the stars in red around the center and stenciled it also in the sky with glimmer paste.  I used the MOD Heart die border.   All images were colored with Copic markers.
