SwimBeachMonkey Have a BALL Circle Flip Its #2 Card

Created this card using a new Sizzix die I bought this morn at Michaels with 50% off Sizzix coupon. It is the Sizzix Circle Flip-Its #2 by Stephanie Barnard. Easy & fun to make. The pieces are all separated unlike some other card die sets I have bought & seen and tend to have all the pieces attached where you have to use pliers to separate and are not so easy to use to make the completed card. I like the scallop edges on this.

Used BugABoo whimsy digi, Swim Beach Monkey. Colored digi with Crayola pencil colors & some on computer. Stamped K Andrew Designs sentiment "Have a BALL" to complement the digi Monkey with the Ball.

Added buttons, ribbon & ribbon bow.

season's tweetings watercolor Card

Made this cute card using Lawn Fawn stamps & water colors.

Stamped each of the 3 Birds & used the dies to cut them out. Stamped branch. Discovered that after stamping a branch & cutting with die that the branch stamp needs to not be straight when stamped or the die will not cut it correctly. So, I cut a branch, placed the stamp inside the cutout area lining it up inside the cutout area, placed the block over the stamp, lifted the stamp up, stamped & then the die cut it out correctly. Stamped tiny music notes. Made sure I had a Zilpoc snack bag handy to place the dies in so I did not lose them in carrying them from the Sizzix BIGkick to where I was crafting at the kitchen table. Stamped sentiment.

Used water colors: Chrome Green on the scarf, hat & ear muffs.

Added stickles on the hat. Used Wink of Stella clear pen on bird's beaks & music notes. Added ribbon.






Supplies List 

ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, VersaFine Onyx Black 
paper: scrap piece of snowflake scrapbook  cardstock - blue, red, white

warm winter wishes paper piecing & water color Card

Made this cute card using Lawn Fawn stamps, paper piecing & water colors.

Stamped the Fox multiple times & paper pieced the scarf & mug by cutting out the pieces with scissors.

My daughter who I consider to be the true artist in the family gave me some of her art supplies from high school. She gave me the Yasumoto Niji water colors which are colors inside a tube. You can see what the water colors look like in photo below.

Used water colors: White on the Fox's tail & Burnt Sienna on the drink inside the mug. The Fox's tail is not perfect but I like it since I think that's what it would look like if a Fox had dipped its tail into my water colors on its own.

Added Glossy accents over the water color Burnt Sienna to make the drink look more real.






















Supplies List 

Glossy accents: added to drink
ink: VersaFine Onyx Black 
paper: cardstock - Kraft, red, white
punch: Fiskars corner rounder
stamp  Lawn Fawn Winter Fox
Stampin' Up: punch - Extra Lg Curly Label
watercolor: Yasutomo Niji - Burnt Sienna (drink in mug), White(Fox's tail)
