Throwing Hearts and Kisses

Aloha, everybody!

This is a card to thank one of my nurse friends.

Just like the other nurse cards, it's colored with Copic markers and decorated a bit with sequins and ribbon.  Had to add some little pink flowers to her dress and freckles to her face.

Stamp: My Favorite Things-Pure Innocence "Sending Big Hugs"
Cardstock GKD 120# White, mirrored hearts and swirls from stash, Neenah Solar White (for image)
Colored with Copic Markers and edged with Memento Lady Bug Red
Glossy Accents (on all the hearts and her shoes)
Sequins by Pretty Pink Posh
(Adhesive Foam, SMS liquid glue, ribbon from stash)

Thank you for stopping by!
Wishing you all the very best ♥

Trio of Nurse Cards

Aloha, everyone!

I hope your week has started off well ♥ Here is a trio of Mahalo cards I made for nurses who took such tender loving care of me. I still have a few more to make, so be "patient" with me LOL.

I kept these simple by coloring with Copic Markers. Then I used a variety of dies, sequins, ribbons, punches, Nuvo drops and cut/embossed papers to layer and place them on to the cards.

Stamp: My Favorite Things-Pure Innocence "Best Medicine"
Cardstock: GKD 120# White, Anna Griffin (pink shimmer), Mirror Heart swirls (found in stash) and Neenah Solar White (images)
Dies: Gina Marie Stitched Rectangles, Wonky Rectangles, SB stitched Ovals, SU Pennants
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black (stamping) and Copic Markers (edges sponged with Memento Inks)
Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug Peacock Feathers
Sequins "Pretty Pink Posh"
Fiskars Flower Punches; Corner Rounder Punch
Ribbons (stash)
Tonic Nuvo Transparent Drops
(SMS liquid glue, Adhesive Foam, Scor Tape, Multi Matte Medium)

Do you have a favorite color combination that you use often?

A Little Hula


Where have I been? Well, here - there, and coloring when possible ♥

I made a couple of little hula girl cards and here is one of them. It's a thank you for one of the nurses who has taken good care of me.

Using Copic markers, I colored the images and then fussy cut them out. The palm tree is a die though. See her little top? I fussy cut it lol! This gave me the thought to draw the flower shapes onto the other card, so that's what I did.

I cut a piece of paper into a hill and sponged the sandy beach and sky using the negative and positive pieces. You'll see Stickles and Glossy Accents on the ocean, hula skirt and bird beak, oh, and eyes. Finally, I used an Action Wobbler mini for the back of the hula girl and you got it, she SHAKES!! And the tree has heart coconuts!

Now my brain does not lean well towards sketch challenges. In fact, they tend to make me freeze up and itch all over! But I keep trying...
