Farmhouse Shiplap Background

For my project I used and colored the Farmhouse Shiplap Background from Whimsy Stamps. I wanted to go for a re-purposed look so I colored the planks different shades of gray, brown and even one or two of them blue. I also added seams with nails.  I thought the background was good enough for a card so I skipped coloring a character to put on top of it.  I simply added a few odds and ends to create this fun maze card.

Here are the Copic markers I used:

W2, 3, 4, 6
E00, 31, 35, 43
E42, 43, 44
B91, W6, 4, 3
T4, 3, 1
C8, 7, 3
0.2 Multiliner and white gel pen

Out of This World

Here's another galaxy background I tried out and this one uses Distress Inks and the round sponge. Thank you to Chrissy (Chrissyd723) for pointing me to the YouTube tutorial.  This technique was less frustrating than the watercolor but it was significantly more time consuming.  However, either one, I liked the results.

These are the Copic markers I used on Out of This World:

E30, 31, 37
YG17, 23
BG45, 11
Y35, 11
V20, 25
YR09, 12, Y32
R17, 46
C0, 3, 7
W7, 5, 2

This is a card idea by Chari Moss which is featured in the Lawn Fawn store gallery.

Birthday Memories - Bears

I've used the Birthday Memories designer series papers from Stampin' Up! to create this project and followed a card layout and idea by Twins & Twine.  I also used some Make it Crafty chipboard embellishments for the sentiment.  I think this will make a great guy card.

Donut Birthday

For my project today, I've used three products from Whimsy Stamps: Donut Birthday rubber stamp, Straight Edgers metal die and the Farmhouse Basket stencil. Be warned, this is a dangerous stamp, let me tell you!  Not only was it fun to color but it also left me craving donuts.  LOL This one is on my list for a movement type card so be on the look out for a second project soon.  ;D

Here are the Copic markers I used on this:

E71, 74, 77, 79
E51, 55
C2, 3, 4, 5
R05, 46, 59

Party Pandas

For this project I used Party Pandas from Stampin' Up and followed a layout by Michelle Last. I changed a few things and added the honeycomb balloon.  The hats were from the Party Animals decorative paper so I colored them and the envelop to match.  Enjoy!

Stained Glass Sunrise

Come link up one of your projects this week in the Anything Goes challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps - you'll have a chance to win a $10.00 gift card and if your project is features, then you'll get even more bonuses!

For my project today, I've used Stained Glass Sunrise from Little Miss Muffet Stamps which is one of the new releases today. I've used a sentiment but I think it would look fantastic with a character too ... or even on it's own.  To fit the size card I was using, I cut off the top then used part of it for the corners.

(Sorry it looks like I've lost the Copic markers list for this project.)

The sentiment is a Make it Crafty chipboard embellishment.
This was the Technique Lovers Challenge #678 from Lyn which evolved into a stamp.
