Collection 1, Sketch 3
I definitely appreciate a nice bubble bath and how cute are these duckies! For this card I trimmed the pattern paper as seen on the sketch. I used the Sno Cone card stock for my card base. I didn’t want to leave the top and bottom pieces plain so I used the Bubbly Background Stencil from the Banana Split pack and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink to add some design to those areas. I did tweak the sketch to fit my images and used the bathtub for the rectangular area on the sketch. I added one of the sentiments from the Bubbles in the Tub stamp set found in this collection. To finish the card I added two bubble images with White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter drops, the soap image and some enamel dots!
On the inside of the card I added the Happy Birthday sentiment, another soap image and I added lots of dots with a Blue/Green Copic marker.
Collection 2, Sketch 4
This chicken cracks me up and these ephemera pieces that tell a joke are perfect! My card base is made from the Nighshift Blue card stock. As usual I trimmed my pattern paper as per the sketch. I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the edge of the oval piece so it would stand out a little bit. I stamped, colored and cut out my chicken. Once the chicken was adhered to the card, I applied some Glossy Accents to the bubble gum to give it a little dimension and shine. The sketch shows ribbon so I used the Pink ribbon from the collection to add to the top. I put the first part of the ephemera that starts the joke on the front. To finish the card I added a few enamel dots.
On the inside of the card, I stamped out the image again and added the punch line of the joke just to the side as if the chicken was saying it.
Card 3, Sketch 1
This card was suppose to be a shaker card and that changed last minute… This image screams “shaker” to me. My card base is made from the Blu Raspberry card stock. I stamped the image, colored it, made a frame and then I realized that I should have added the image a little higher. If I filled the square with sequins, the cute scene of blowing out the candle would be lost. I already created the piece so I decided it would just remain a window piece. Since I wouldn’t be filling it with sequins, I chose to glue a variety of sequins around the window. In the end, I really liked the outcome. Next, I worked on my sentiment. I stamped out the “Make a Wish” sentiment from the Make a Wish Stamp Set. I cut that out with my Brother Scan and Cut and colored the “wish” with pink Copic markers. I finished the card by adding the pink and white twine to the bottom and 2 enamel dots.
On the inside, I added the other sentiment from the stamp set and used a pink Copic markers to add a few dots around it.
Card 4, Sketch 2
This sketch I modified to fit the items I had. I used a 1 inch circle punch to cut out 16 circles for the front of my card. I placed them onto my Grape Jelly card stock and thought it needed a little something more. I grabbed the Bubbles Background stencil and Dusty Concord Distress Ink for a tone on tone background. Once that was done I glued down all my circles. I felt my circles needed a little something more so I used a white gel pen to add highlights. I then chose a sentiment from the sentiment ephemera from the collection and finished the card with enamel dots.
On the inside, I adhered another sentiment ephemera piece and used a purple Copic marker and added little dots to the upper right and lower left of the sentiment piece.
