Here are what I made
Project # 1 : Caped Crusaders Stamp and Building Dies

I started by die cut from watercolor paper for all the building from Building Dies and used distress inks as my watercolor medium for all the pieces.  After they dried, I put back all the pieces on to my white card base and estimate where I could stamped this wonder cat from Caped Crusaders stamp and masked her off.  I then began to distress my white panel with blue distress ink for the sky.

I glued all the building pieces to main panel and diecut it with Picture Frame dies for decorative edges.  I then colored Wonder Cat with copic markers and stamped the sentiment.  To finish it off I sprinkled Sweet Sixteen Sequins here and there using Multi Medium Matt as my glue.

I started by stamped the adorable bunny with glasses from Somebunny stamp and decorated a little bit with the fence, carrot and flower patch images.  I used the oval shape die from Fancy Stitched Label dies and did some patial diecut so that the bunny image still be part of the piece.  It could have been easier if I just stamped the bunny seperately and attached it down... *lol* but I fancy that way.

From white cardbase I cut my panel using Fancy Frame die before I embossed it and attached onto my Doodlebug Bunnyville paper pad.  I also diecut the butterfly which also included in Window Pane die and colored all the images with copic markers.  I finished it off with Shimmer Sequin.

From my main panel that I cut white cardstock from Fancy Frame dies and I also cut at the center but toward the top using Inside Scalloped Circles dies.  I also cut it from gold glister paper for decorative edge.  For the negtive inside I stamped the unicorn from Magical Unicorns stamp on the cloud and some clouds and rainbow.

I colored all images with copic markers and sprinkled Glimmering Gemstones Sequins here and there.

Project # 4 Happy Trails Stamp

I had extra Building dies pieces that I diecut from my 1st projects  I used the same concept but incorperate the road die from Scene Builders dies.  I stamped this adorable pig with Icecream truck from Happy Trails stamp seperately and colored it with copic markers and fussy cut it out.  I inlaid the road die to my main panel and die cute it with Picture Frame dies.

I then attached the pig with the Icecream truck on to the panel and stamped the sentiment using few of stamps combination of Happy Trails, Wishful Thoughts and Sweet Shop stamps.

I love this stamp so much so I had to do my one layer card using this sweet viking warrior and her sea dragon from Norse Warriors stamp.  I handreawn the clif for her to stand on.  I colored all images including the sea with copic markers and slightly distress the sky with light blue distress ink.

I cut the panel with Fancy Frame die and mounted onto my black cardbase.

I do hope you do like my projects for this March release and Thank you so much for stopping by today.
