A Perfect Day for Giant Bubbles

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's SPRING! Which means playing outside and BUBBLES! This is Bubble Fun Owen and his puppy pal making giant bubbles! I used embossing paste to make the bubbly background and glossy accents to make the big bubble look real. I was inspired by my niece and nephew's Easter present which was HUGE bubble makers (see below).

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you still blow bubbles?
A: Me? Yes! When I'm playing with my niece and nephew but I don't think bubble blowing is going to be very popular post-COVID

May the 4th Be With You by Noelene

Happy Star Wars Day all!

It's Noelene back again today to share with you a card I made using the out of this world image from PND called Rebel Hero. 

I created a masculine card with some layers & dies to match my theme.

How cute is our Rebel Hero! He reminds me of a young Obi Wan Kenobi ready for battle :)

Rebel Hero is available in rubber here & digital format here.

May the force be with you!

Thanks for stopping by!

Furever Friends

Hi PND Fans! It's Betty with a simple card to make! 

Letting your friends know how special he or she is by sending a cute handmade card will for sure brighten their day! Especially a card made with an adorable stamp, just like this digital one from Paper Nest Dolls called Avery Bathing Puppy. Also from Paper Nest Dolls, I used bubbles from the Mermaid Set.

To create this slimline card, I imported the digital stamps into my Silhouette Studio software then printed it onto white cardstock. I colored the images using Copic markers. 

Copic Markers Used:
Hair: E37, E35, E34, E31
Skin: E13, E11, E21, E00, E000
Cheeks: R20, R30
Coral: R24, R22, R21, R20
Green: YG06, YG25, YG23, YG21
White (dog): W4, W2, W0
Dog nose: T5, T4, T2
Blue bucket: B97, B95, B93
Bubbles: BV00, RV00, B000, B0000

I created a sentiment using Microsoft Word, printed it on white cardstock, and cut it out using a banner die. I cut out a banner using the same blue cardstock I used to mat the card front. I used a pawprints stencil to create pawprints on my card.

I adhered the mat, card front, and sentiment onto the card base. To finish the card, I added a few enamel dots. 

Thank you for visiting and have a creative week! ~Betty~
