Gone Fishing by Dana Warren

Hello AI Fans!!

Dana, here with a one layer circle card! Ok, technically it's not one layer as my card base and colored image are actually two pieces! BUT,  I wanted to hide the back side of the coloring panel, you really don't want your recipient to see it when they open the card, do you?!?!

To create a circle card I first cut a circle from white cardstock. Then I scored some white card stock and placed the circle die on top. The die is just a tiny bit above the scored top, this will create the fold.

Next, I stamped the little floating dog from Reel Great Guys stamp set. Then I used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers to color him. I used AB1, AB2, AP1, AP2, BG2, BG2, BT1, CR11, EB1, EB2, EB4.

I stamped the gone fishing just above the dog and then adhered the circle to the circle card base. To make the card stand I just trimmed a little bit from the bottom. Otherwise, I kept it pretty simple, figured this would be perfect for a guy and they don't need a lot of sparkle or embellishments!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Happy Stamping!!

Dancing Easter Tots by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
I adore everything about Easter colours - they're so fresh & pretty, and after a long winter like this one, they're a welcome change.  I am using the sweet Dancing Easter Tots (Sku #T4019) today:
 I blended six different distress inks onto my card base, then sprayed it with some Tattered Angels shimmer mist that gives a wonderful shimmer to the background, as well as some lovely texture from the moisture of the mist.  I ran a line of stitching 1/4" in from the edge with my sewing machine to frame the image.  After colouring with Copic markers, I fussy cut around the image, and used pop dots to adhere it to the base for a little dimension.  I had these wonderful pastel sequins that perfectly matched my inks so I sprinkled a few of those on as well.
 The sentiment is from Celebrate Spring MTF (Sku #4849).  Here is a shot to show how much the background glimmers:
 There are all kinds of sweet Easter stamps in the Ai store, you can find them all here.  Happy stamping!
Copics used: C3, C1, BV02, BV00, E11, E00, E000, E51, E51, E34, E31, R20, R81, BG11, B35, E57, E55, E53, YG01.
