We also have a special priced May Release Bundle that's only available for this weekend only.

Here's what I've created for you...

**Project # 1**


 This card is showcasing Build A Scene 2 stamp set.  It's perfect for those who love to build a scene with landscape to the project.  This set can be used all year round and additional images to Build A Scene stamp set from March Release.

I started by stamping the waterfall toward the top right corner as if it's further away background.  I then stamped the flowers line toward bottom left corner as my foreground.  I pulled out my all time favorite stamp set Chilly and stamped the cutie bunny.  I colored all images with copic markers.  For the waterfall I did used wink of stella pen and grossy accent.

After the grossy accent dried, I cut the panel using the stitched rectangle die (2nd one from the largest) of Fancy Frame Dies and mounted onto black layering card stock.  I used Picture Frame Dies and cut 2 pieces of red card stock to make my card based.

Not to forget the sentiment :) I used Wishful Thoughts stamp set and filled up the empty sky and finished it off by using Honeycomb sequins (new)

And here are all details at closer look

Flowers and Honeycomb Sequins

*** Project # 2 ***


This card is showcasing Adventure Awaits and Enchanted Tales stamp sets.  The fun and adorable boylish style and some corodinate images that can make you card look more interesting.

I chose to stamp the handsome wizard (from Adventure Awaits stamp set) holding magical wand in his hand casting the magical spell/wishes for the lucky birthday boy. :)  I decided to have the big moon and the floating castel (from Enchanted Tales) to be my background.  I masked the images off with post-it tape and did some inking with blue distress inks for night scene.  I colored all the images using copic markers (again) and stamped the sentiment above the wizard.  I then cut my panel with Fancy Frame Dies and mounted on my card base.
 
I sprinkled all over with magical sequins (lol) using Skyfall sequins (new).  And it's done!

 Here's the closer look

I hope you like them and wishing you all a wonderful day.

  25. Your cards are so cute! The first one looks like a true spring scene with everything springing to life. And your coloring technique on the wizard card is truly magical. I love the "reflections" that are depicted.
