Spread Joy Not Germs Blog Hop w/ CAS-ual Fridays & Paper Sweeties!!

Pin It

HELLO CRAFTY FRIENDS!!

I'm here today as part of the Spread Joy Not Germs Blog Hop and I've got 2 Projects to share with you!!
One uses Products from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and one using Products from Paper Sweeties!! 
You should be coming here from the Blog of Lynda Kanase!! If you get lost along the way, you can visit the Blogs of Catherine and Alexandra for the FULL List!!
My CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Card was made using the Somebunny Stamp Set!! I Stamped and Embossed the Image and used Copic Markers to color it in!! (Bunny: N0, N2 & N4   Cheeks and Inside of the Ears: R11    Balloon: R43, R46 & R89) I Die Cut the Image out using the coordinating Bunny Fri-Dies!! 
I Die Cut a Cloud using a NND Sky Border Die and Inked it us using some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink for some Dimension and Shading!! I then Die Cut the "Just Breath" Sentiment using the Just Breath Dies 4 Times from some Neenah Solar White Cardstock and 1 from some Distress Watercolor Paper!! I glued all 4 of the Solar White words together and then I adhered the Distress Watercolor Die Cuts on top!! Then I Inked the Bottom half of the Words with some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for an Ombre` look!! I adhered it to the Cloud Die Cut and set it aside!! For the Background I used the NND Cloud Stencil and Faded Jeans and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to create a Cloud Background!! Then I added water splatters, let it dry and then I Splattered on some Black Soot Distress Paint for some texture!! I adhered the Cloud Panel and then I adhered the Bunny Floating up on the Balloon!! I added some Tonic Studios Shimmer Pen to the Balloon and then coated it with some Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to make it appear Shinny and Shimmery!! A Few White Gel Pen details were added for highlights and some Studio Katia Clay Hearts finish off the Design!!

My Paper Sweeties Card was made using the Flowers and Sign from the Basket Add-On: Thinking of You Stamp Set and the Sweet Bumblebee from the Bee Happy Stamp Set!! I Stamped and Embossed the Images and then I used Copic Markers to color them in (Flowers: R000, R11, R22 & R27  Greenery: YG61, YG63, YG67 & BG18   Sign: N0, N2, E30, E33 & E37   Bumblebee: N0, N2, N4   Y11, Y15 & YR23  BG10  Cheeks: R11) I then Die Cut the Images out using the coordinating Dies Basket Add-On: Thinking of You Dies and the Bee Happy Dies!! 
I created the Card Panel using some Distress Oxide Inks in Lucky Clover and Shabby Shutters for the Ground and some Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers for the Sky!! Some Perfect Pearls Mix was Splattered onto the Background for some texture and Sparkle!! I just LOVE the look of this when its dry!! Then I added some Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters for even more texture!! I adhered the Flowers and Sign to the bottom of the Card and then I Die Cut some Stitches into the Panel to make the Bumblebee appear to to be Flying and adhered the Bumblebee to the Card with a Gina K Designs Foam Square!! I added some Tonic Studios Shimmer Pen to the Wings of the Bumblebee and then coated them with some Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to make them appear Clear and Shimmery!! A Few White Gel Pen details were added for highlights and my Card was done!!
