Banana Split

Collection 1, Sketch 2

This card was a little difficult for me to get these circles spaced correctly! But once I did no crafty “ooppss” was going to have me quit on this card! I used the Pineapple stencil from the Banana Split pack to the front panel with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and then added 2 pieces of the ephemera from the collection. I used the ‘Tropical State of Mind” sentiment on some white card stock and cut that down from the lower, right corner – adding 3 enamel dots. I then grabbed the Blushing Red Nuvo Crystal drops that we received in last months kit to finish the front. On the inside I stamped Happy Birthday and the Flamingo from the stamp set and added just touches of pink to the bird.

Collection 2, Sketch 3

I love the sentiment in this set and how fun are the pattern papers! I basically followed the sketch using the fishtail sentiment die to cut the banner pieces. I used the twine from the collection and added one of the Pineapple images from the stamp set. On the inside, I added the Sentiment and 1 lemon image from the stamp set. I used a single yellow Copic to add a little color to the lemon slice.

Collection 3, Sketch 4

This Ocean scene was the perfect choice for this sketch! I loved that the papers are different watery backgrounds, they really let the colored image stand out. I added some Diamond Stickles here and there on the image to add some sparkle. On the inside, I kept it simple with just a simple “Thank You”.

Collection 4, Sketch 1

The paper in this collection are so bright and I love there isn’t much of a pattern. These papers were perfect for this sketch. I was able to trim those thin pieces and not worry about images. On the inside, I simply added a scrap piece to the bottom.

Thank You so Much for checking out my blog today.

Double Dip Sundae
Banana Split
April Card Sketches

Collection 1, Sketch 4

Fun, little, busy bees and their beehive. This sketch was a perfect way to use the bees in this stamp set. I stamped the bees and the beehive, colored with Copic markers and fussy cut. The bees were used like the banner in the sketch. I used Wink of Stella glitter brush on the wings of the bees and on the beehive.

On the inside of the the card I used the sentiment “Just bee-cause” from the stamp set and stamped the bees around the sentiment.

Collection 2, Sketch 1

The stamp set in this collection is great for making all kinds of backgrounds and wreaths. I decided to make a wreath using a variety of inks. I am using one of the ephemera pieces for the sentiment “thinking of you”. I added Wink of Stella glitter brush along the sentiment.

On the inside, I used a few of those floral pieces in opposite corners.

Collection 3, Sketch 3

This card is super fun! I stamped the water and lily pad and colored that scene in with Copic markers. I also stamped and colored the frog image – fussy cut it out so I could add it to the lily pad with foam tape. I stamped the “You’re Toadally Terrific” with green ink. I then added Wink of Stella glitter brush to the water.

On the inside, I used a sentiment found on the “Sentiment Stamp Set” found in the banana split portion of the card kit and stamped the water image again.

Collection 4, Sketch 2

How cute are these ducks! I stamped the duck in the umbrella image, colored with Copic markers and fussy cut. Then I cut an oval with a wonky stitched oval die and adhered the duck with foam tape.

On the inside I used the “Have a Ducky Day” sentiment from the stamp set and the other duck image.

Hello Everyone!  I am so excited about this month’s kit.  There are some great images to color and I really love that all the pattern paper found in the collections is double sided.  I have a love/hate relationship with double sided paper – especially when I LOVE both sides, but it gives so much opportunity for different cards when making cards with just the kit or just the collection.

Card 1, Collection 1, Sketch 2

collection1a

This card sketch was PERFECT for the ephemera that I received in this collection.  I also love how this sketch shows off the many patterns of paper included without using too much.  I cut down the top strip and bottom 2 strips to just a quarter inch, which still leaves plenty of pattern paper for more cards.

Card 2, Collection 2, Sketch 4

Donut3A.jpg

Who can resist Newton?  This little kitty is super cute hanging from the donut and the paper found in this collection was some of my favorite.  I hand stamped Newton and colored him with Copic markers.  I then fussy cut him (which was fairly easy) and adhered him to the card with foam tape.  I love the sentiment “Life is better with sprinkles”; I thought it was fitting since I really love sprinkles!

Card 3, Collection 3, Sketch 1

collection2a

Mini Marci is adorable as ever!  I hand stamped her and colored her to match the bold and bright patterns found in this collection.  I added the cup, spoon and 2 mini coffee bean stickers; I liked they had a little dimension to them.  To finish off the card, I added some stitched lines with a black gel pen around the circle.

Card 4, Collection 4, Sketch 3

collect 4a

Brew It Anya is full of New Year spirit with “You can Brew It”!  This sweet and sassy image was hand stamped and colored with Copic markers.  She was fussy cut and added to the card with foam tape.
