HELLO!! 
I'm here today with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and Crafting of Hue for a Critter Inspiration Special!! I've created a SWEET Spring Birthday Card for today sing the Somebunny Stamp Set, Bunny Fri-Dies, Pretty Posies Stamp Set and the Posies Fri-Dies!! Let's get to it!! 
I Started by Stamping and Embossing my Images using Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! I then Colored everything In with Copic Markers!! Normally, I would have colored my Flowers alittle Lighter, but I wanted them to be BOLD for this Card!! So I colored them BRIGHT and FULL of Color!! (Orange Flowers: YR02, YR18 and YR68  Yellow Flowers: Y11, Y15 and YR23  Pink Flowers & Balloon: RV00, RV02, RV13 & RV17  Greenery: YG03, YG17 & G05  Bunny: C0, C2 & C5   Cheeks and Inside of Ears: RV00)  
Once colored, I used the Coordinating Dies to Die Cut everything Out!! Then I added some Nuvo Drops in Walnut Crystal to the center of the Flowers!! I set them aside to Dry and once Dry I added some White Gel Pen Highlights!! I really think these small detail really add ALOT to the Images!!  
For my Background I Inked the Card Panel with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink added Water Splatters and then added some Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters!! I LOVE how BRIGHT it is so that the Bunny really POPS!! 
I then adhered everything to create my Scene using some Foam Tapes in areas!! Then I added a Few Iridescent Jewels!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment and Cut it Down backing it with a Small Black Border and adhering it to the top of the Flowers!! I also added some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to help make it blend in and PoP!! I also added some Clear Glitter Pen to the Flowers and Balloon Images and then I added some Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to the Balloon to make it Shiny!! I LOVE the way it turned out!!

I've made a Trio of Projects!! Two Cards and a Gift Bag!! I LOVE making coordinating Cards and Bags for those Special Gifts I need to give!! I just LOVE the NEW Rina K Designs Sending Sunshine and Sweet Stuff Stamp-n-Stencil Sets!! The Images are so HAPPY and the sentiments are so versatile!! The coordinating Stencils make it EASY to add the details with whatever medium you want to use!! I've used the NEW Glitz Glitter Gels in both Gina K Designs Iridescent Color and the NEW Rina K Designs Hello Yellow!! SWOON!! If you haven't tried the Glitz Glitter Gels they're a MUST try/have!! I LOVE to use Glitter on my Projects, but these are the Glitter without and of the Mess!! 
I like creating Scenes with my Images!! The NEW Sending Sunshine Set makes it EASY!! I started by Stenciling the bottom 2/3 of the Card with some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink!! I Stamped some of the Leaves from the Set onto the Card Base and then Stamped the other Leaves from the Set and Die Cut them out using the coordinating Dies!! I Stamped and Stenciled the Hibiscus Flowers and Pineapple Images and then added everything with Gina K Designs Foam Tape!! Some Iridescent Jewels finish off the Design!!

Here's a Close up of all of the Details!! I like to Stamp and Emboss my Sentiments to help make them POP!! I used Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! I also added Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters for some texture!! 
I kept the Design Similar!! I just used the Hibiscus Flowers for the Scene and used a combination of both Stamped and Die Cut Leaves to help build the Design!! I LOVE the BOLD Colors of the Rina K Designs Electro Pop Potent Purple Ink and then I used Seedless Preserves Distress Ink for the Shading using an Ink Dauber and my MISTI Stamping Tool!! It makes a HUGE different in the dimension of the the Flowers!! 
Another look at a Close Up for all of the Details!! Again Stamping and Embossing the Sentiment and adding the Distress Paint Splatters for some Texture!! 
For the Gift Bag I used a similar Design Layout, just on a smaller scale!! I LOVE the White Wash Woodgrain Patterned Paper that I used for the Gift Bag itself using the Mama Elephant Gift Bag Die!! I think it makes if feel Summery and Beachy!!?? Makes me SO READY for Summer!!

 SWOON!! I KNOW I'm not alone when I say that the Paper Smooches Animal Images are among some of my FAVORITES out there, so when I saw the NEW Challenge Theme I have to admit the HARDEST decision was choosing what Image to use!! lol!! I decided to go with the SWEET Bird from the NEW Happy Hellos Stamp Set!! I Stamped and Embossed the Image and then used Copic Markers to Color the Image!! I then used the coordinating Happy Hellos Icons Dies to Die Cut the Image out!! I wanted to make a Base of Leaves for the Image to rest so after looking through my stash I decided on using the Leaf Sprig Images from the Natural Beauties Stamp Set!! These sets are the PERFECT complements to one another!! After Stamping and Embossing the Images (I used the two different Leaf Sprig Images and the Little Bird Image) I colored them in with Copic Markers and then used the coordinating Natural Beauties Icons Dies to Die Cut them out!! 
I wanted to Dress the Bird up alittle so I Die Cut the Bow Die from some Patterned Paper and then added a Jewel to the center for some Sparkle!! I also wanted to finish the Sentiment so I Die Cut the Gift Tags 3 Die and Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment using some WoW Embossing Powders in both Clear Gloss and Red Glitz!! I LOVE the touch of Sparkle and Shine!! I also Die Cut some of the from the same set from some Cardstock that I coated with the same Red Glitz Embossing Powder and added them around the Image!! A Burlap Twine Bow finishes off the Tag, and some Tonic Studios Nuvo Drops in Morning Dew were added to the Beak and white Gel Pen Details for some Highlights!! I LOVE the way it turned out!!

HELLO!! 

I'm here for the Paper Sweeties March Release Party!! Today I'm showcasing the NEW Sets for this Month!! I've used the NEW Sorry Stamp Set and the coordinating Sorry Sweet Cuts Die Set for my Tag today!! 

Here's a look at the NEW Sets!! 
  I used the For You Stitched Tag Sweet Cuts Die and Stamped the NEW Sorry Sentiment using Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and then Embossed with WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! I wanted to layer the NEW Sorry Sweet Cuts Sentiment over the top to create a Shadowed effect!! So I Inked some Cardstock with some Versa Mark Embossing Ink and coated it with some WoW Rockin Red Embossing Powder!! Then I Die Cut the Sorry Word!! I adhered it to the Stamped and Embossed Sentiment with some liquid Adhesive!! 
I Stamped and Embossed the Band-aid Image and then used Copic Markers to color it in!! I used the coordinating Dies to Die Cut it out and then I Stamped and Embossed the Your Sick sentiment and fussy cut around it to adhere it to the Tag at an angle to tie the Sentiment and Image together!! A Tulle and Watermelon Seam Binding Bow was added to the Tag to finish it off and then I adhered it to a Treat Box that I Die Cut and created from some Plaid Patterned Paper!! Not sure about you, but with all of the YUCK going on I'm thinking having lil' Tags/Boxes like this on hand will come in handy for a quick pick me up as we brace for the weeks/months ahead and dealing with the COVID-19 outbreak!!
