April new release: Rainy Day Owen

Hi PND Fans! Betty back with a card using a new release! "When life throws you a rainy day, play in the puddles!" Do you know what this means? It means that if you planned for something, but it did not go as planned, then make the best of what you have. You take that rainy day and turn it into something extraordinary. I thought this sentiment was perfect for this April new release stamp by Paper Nest Dolls called Rainy Day Owen.  This stamp comes in digital format and in red rubber (soon).

I made an A6 size card using the digital version of the stamp. This way, I can make the image as large as I want. I first printed the stamp and then colored it using Copic markers. I used the markers to make the rain showers. Colors are listed below.

Copic markers used:
Hair: E99, E97, E55, E53
Skin: R56, E11, E21, E00, E000
Blue clothes & boots: B39, B37, B26, B24, B32
Red Shorts & boat: R59, R37, R35, R24, R32
Duck: V01, Y13, Y11; beak: YR15, YR12, YR21
Raindrops & Water: C3, B23, B12, B01, B00
White sail: T3, T1, T0, Blender

I used patterned paper I had in my stash to make a mat for the card base. I matted the card front with white cardstock. I created the sentiment in MS-Word and printed it with my printer then trimmed it to fit the card. I also matted the sentiment with white cardstock and adhered it to the card. Since this card is made for a male, I did not add any bling. The card was finished.

This is a really cute stamp that could be used for birthdays, get well, friendship, hello, and more! So cute and easy to color! Hope you give it a try. Have a creative week! ~Betty~

Sunny Gnome Garden

 Hello Everyone! 

Cat here with todays inspirations. 

Here in Wales Spring has begun, we have had some beautiful sunny days which has made every one happy and smiley. 

This has influenced my card for today - with a bright sunny sky and the gnomes have venture out into their garden to plant their flowers - which is what I shall be doing later! 

I have used the Gnome digital Set which you can purchase here 

The images have been printed out on a laser printer and coloured with Promarkers before being fussy cut.

To create this DL card, I created the background on a scalloped Dl piece of card with Tim Holts Distress Inks (Mustard Seed, Fossilized amber for the sky and for the grass I used Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint) with some stencils. 

I then added the images to the background with Glue and Foam pads. 

I created the sentiment ' Welcome to the secret Garden' in word and printed out and die cut into a heart.  

Finally I added some white sequins to complete! 

I hope you like it!
