Cosmopolitan Neapolitan

This is the Tuesday Trigger over at the Moxie Fab World this week:

Just looks so delicious! Here's what I came up with.

I cut some My Minds Eye pattern paper into strips and rounded the bottoms. Stamped the sentiment from a Verve set on a Spellbinders die cut shape, added a bow and some pearls. Ta da!

I used the sketch from this week's Mojo Monday.

Love how it all came together!

Thanks for looking!

Waterspots on rainboots

I decided to ink up a stamp set that I haven't used yet from Flourishes. It's the April Showers set and I love all the versatility that it has!

The Bring Back Beautiful challenge is to only color a portion of your image. I die cut some large raindrops and colored them with copics to bring in the color. There's also a layer of Glossy Accents to give them a nice water like look. 

Not totally loving this card...I had a hard time with the placement of those boots in relation to the sun/clouds. Looking at it now I think I should have put the cloud more directly over the falling droplets. Oh well. 

Have a lovely Saturday! We took the baby to feed the ducks this morning. She was tickled pink at all the ducks surrounding us and laughed and laughed. Too cute!

Trigger Target: Classically Modern

The Trigger Target over at the Moxie Fab World is this lovely photo.

It's been a while since I've played along, but I had to try this one. Love the blue florals, crisp whites, that fab mirror and the pop of pink from the tulips.

I stamped the floral image several times to create a background pattern and colored in some of the flowers with a Copic to reduce some of the white space. The sentiment was stamped on a small strip of white and then it was dry embossed to give it some texture. I stamped and embossed a fringe like image with silver embossing tinsel and added a silver circle cut with a Spellbinders die to make a "mirror". The tulips were colored were colored with Copics and placed on top of the silver "mirror".

Thanks for looking!

Princess Syren

I'm finally back! It has been forever since I've posted...having the baby catch a cold and then giving it to my husband and I really knocked the wind out of my sails for a while. Then those blogger issues. Ah well.

So I finally got some mojo back and wanted to play along with TGF's Royalty contest. Have you seen the June release? So cute!

I don't own any TGF princess/prince stamps so I decided to make a "Little Mermaid" inspired card with Syren crowned as the princess. She's more of a sassy princess as opposed to Ariel's sweetness so I chose some pretty papers in darker shades. Her hair and tail are paper pieced and she's wearing a little crown I made out of a corner punch. This is also the first time I've made a center step card. Super easy after watching the SCS tutorial.

I love how this fun card turned out. The Little Mermaid has always been my favorite Disney cartoon!

Thanks for stopping by!
