Happy Monday! We are celebrating “No Girls Allowed” for the Cards in Envy challenge this week. That means we’d love to see cards that showcase boys, men or masculine cards. Please make sure your card fits into a standard A2 size envelope without any large lumps or bumps, but doesn’t have to be an actual A2 card anymore.
The challenge will run through Sunday, June 19th. Our design team will also be choosing their favorite cards to feature on the The Cards in Envy blog.
My card features a “Mo Manning’s Bubbles Boy” digi, which I colored up using Copic Markers. I learned a cool new way to color bubbles from the Copic Website. Check out my Pinterest to see how. The papers are from an older Lawn Fawn 6 x 6 pack as is the Journaling Die. The outside frame is a Simon Says Stamp die and the tab is My Favorite Things Die.
I’m excited to see over at Cards in Envy for your “No Girls Allowed” inspiration looks like for you!
Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps June blog hop. This month we have a really unique hop for you using customized images requested by each designer and drawn by Faith, our fearless leader and From the Heart Stamps owner. For my image, I requested a nurse and I couldn’t be more thrilled with this adorable image. I can’t wait to see what all the other designers have chosen.
In addition to the images offered on each blog, one very lucky hopper will be able to request their very own customized image drawn by Faith!!! When you comment here, please say what kind of image you would like if you win the chance.
I kept my card simple as I wanted to highlight this amazing new image, “Little Kathy’s Nurse”. She has the sweetest face. After cutting out a Lawn Fawn Stitched rectangle, I colored her up with copic markers using R46, R27, R05 for her dress. C5, C3, C1, C00 for her accessories and shoes, and E18, E08, YR14 for her hair. The background was created using the My Favorite Things built a stripe background with white pigment ink and Charcoal hero arts shadow ink. It reminded me of a candy striper.
Now head over to Kelly Schelske’s and see what she has asked Faith to design. Oh, I’m so excited!!
Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Sunday June 12th at 6 am EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday June 15th.”
