Batty In Love

Hello again!

I actually have some free time so I wanted to make a card today...
I love the challenges from Paper Smooches...the theme is layers

and AAA Cards...

So I pulled out a Paper Smooches stamp set...Falling for You. 
I also used a stamp set from Papertrey Ink and stamped the wire. I "layered" the bats, stamped them using black ink from Memento and colored them with Copic Markers. 
I added some googly eyes to this cutie! White accents were made with a gel pen. The stitched rectangle die is from Lil'Inker Designs.

Hope you enjoy your weekend!

Thanks for peeking!

Get Well

Hey there!
Hope you having a great start to your summer!
Just popping in to share a card with you.
I am utilizing a few challenges...


I am eyeing that coconut drink and wishing I was on a tropical island. I wanted to keep the color scheme from CC and followed the sketch from FMS.
I kept the background white and used a scalloped stitched die from Avery Elle to cut the center panel. I die cut a circle using a Spellbinders die and pattern paper from My Mind's Eye.

I watercolored some paper with distress inks in peeled paint and grape preserves. I used Spring Flowers Die Set from Lil'Inkers...love these flower dies!!!
The sentiment is from Paper Smooches, Sentiment Sampler. I used black ink from Memento.
I added some shimmer with glittery enamel dots from My Mind's Eye.




Thanks for stopping by for a peek!
