Life Is Better With A Pet

Hey Y'all!!!  What a fun time our little Octopus is having hanging out with her pet the goldfish.  She's the cutest little digital stamp from Angie's Digital Stamps on Etsy.  Two friends just swimming around in a goldfish bowl all day.  How fun would that be?  Life is better with a pet?  What kind of pet do you have? This beautiful card is available in my Etsy store HERE!  All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).

 

 

I started by coloring the ‘Octopus with Bows' digital stamp set from Angie's Digital Stamps.  I just love digital stamps.  It's colored on Sweet Sentiments ‘Premium Coloring Paper‘.  My favorite copic paper!

 

COPIC MARKERS:

• Octopus (R29, R27, R24, R22, 100, C5, C3, Gold Gel Pen)

• Goldfish (Y38, Y35, Y15)

 

The card base is made out of a piece of beautiful brushed gold.  Matches the goldfish bowl.  The first layer is cut from La-La Land Crafts ‘Love You More‘ 6 x 6 paper pack.  So bright and cheery.  The sun & clouds are cut from La-La Land Crafts ‘Love You More‘ 6 x 6 paper pack as well using La-La Land Crafts ‘Stitched Sun & Clouds‘ die set.

 

The fishbowl, goldfish and sentiment were stamped and cut using La-La Land Crafts April 2021 kit.  I just couldn't resist that Octopus pulling his pet goldfish out of the fish bowl to play.   HA!  You can sign up for the monthly kits HERE.  The fish bowl background was created with Alcohol Inks Sailboat Blue & Gold.  Gives the card a lot of depth.  Popped the gold rim up with foam tape for a little more dimension.

 

Life is better with a pet?  What kind of pet do you have?

Make The Cards Challenge Week #12 – Theme Challenge Butterflies

Hey Y'all!!!  I'm back with the Make The Cards Challenge Week #12.  This week's challenge was a theme challenge with Butterflies.  I love the Butterfly dies from Scrappy Tails Crafts.  Add in a little fun alcohol ink and you've got a beautiful card.  New challenges are published weekly at 9 a.m. on Monday.  Join the fun with the color challenge HERE.  This beautiful card is available in my Etsy store HERE!  All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).

 

 

I love alcohol ink.  I used Pearl, Copper & Sailboat Blue.

Used the alcohol inks for the background as well as the butterflies.

 

The card base is made out of Stampin' UP!'s ‘Basic White‘ card stock.  The ‘Alcohol Ink' paper I used is something new for me.  It's called ‘Craft Plastic Opaque White'.  Comes in 12 x 12 sheets.  Allows the alcohol ink to lay on the paper longer so it's more flexible with moving the colors around.  I like it a lot!

 

The layer with the blue, copper and pearl alcohol is cut with Honey Bee Stamps ‘Deckle Edge A2' honey cuts.

 

 

The beautiful butterflies are from Scrappy Tails Crafts.  There are two sets:  ‘Open Butterflies‘ and ‘Sitting Butterflies‘.  Stunning and very intricate designs.

 

 

The sentiment is from Honey Bee Stamps ‘Love You Bunches' Stamp Set.

 

 

We ARE better together, aren't we?
