The sentiment is from the Wild Life Puns set. The washi tape is also from eyelet outlet.
the ink and mist are from clearsnap. The die is from memory box and the paper is doodlebug.

Great Impressions Guest Designer

I am so excited to be guest designing for Great Impressions this month!

I made two cards with these adorable stamps! I definitely could have kept going because I had so much fun! For this first card, I used watercolor pencils to color the image. For the sand, I masked the penguin feet and then blended a couple colors of ink to create variation. Next I used a mask and a slightly darker ink to add the dots, which I then embossed with opalescent clear embossing powder to create a little bit of glimmer, which doesn't show up very well in this photo. Additionally, I added glossy accents to the inner tube, sunglasses and bow, which also doesn't show up well in this photo.

For this card, I wanted to make the image stand out from the rest of the card, so I fussy cut it. I colored this one with watercolor pencils and alcohol ink markers. The double frame really sets off the image.

joy's life back to school project

Today I have a Joy's Life Back to school project to share with you! I thought this would be fun to put in a lunch box filled with treats or fruit snacks or whatever. I used several stamps because I thought my daughter would get a kick out of the puns.

I used four sayings from the Punny Animals stamp set. 

The papers and Washi tape are from Doodlebug. The brads are Eyelet Outlet. The ink is clearsnap. I started with an explosion box that some perfume came in. I recovered it in blue cardstock then added the details.
