- I started out by inkblending over a stencil to create the background panel.
- I then ink blended another small panel for the circle die-cut inserts. I let both panels dry for a few hours.
- I die cut the decorative wave border and then three circles from a piece of white card stock.
- I then die cut three ink-blended circles from the small panel.
- I stamped, Copic colored and die cut the animals.
- I adhered the white panel to the blue background using foam tape. I also used foam tape to add the colored circle inserts for an inlaid look. I popped on the animals with foam squares and added the sentiment.

WWC221 – Tristan\’s Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge
Happy Wednesday and thank you for stopping by! Today is all about masculine cards on the Watercooler Wednesday Website and Tristan is this week\’s hostess.
I\’ve been playing with alcohol inks a lot and made this card for one of my nephews. I made an alcohol ink panel in bright masculine colors and then set the card aside to dry. I took a piece of white cardstock and negative die cut MFT\’s dienamics Happy Birthday sentiment. I saved the die-cuts for a future project. Next, I die cut the panel with a stitched die. I wanted a CAS look but the card seemed a little plain so I die-cut a heart to attach to the card. I assembled and the card is ready to go.

WWC215 – Donna\’s Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge
I started by stamping the image and sentiment from Stamping Bella\’s \”Sage the Scientist\” onto XPress It paper. I then selected fun bright Copic colors and colored away. I wanted the test tubes to stand out so I added a coating of Nuvo Crystal Glaze to each of them. I used MFT\’s Die-namics stitched die and then popped it on a bright green note card.
Head over to the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge website for all the details.
I am entering this card in Simon Says Stamp Animal AnticsChallenge. Aren\’t those little lab assistants adorable?
Thanks for stopping by!
Doodle Buds for Spring
I finally purchased a Gemini Junior die cut machine and I am having so much fun! I am not sure why I waited so long! Previously, I fussy cut everything. Doodle Buds by WPlus9 is one of my all time favorite stamp sets so it was in my first “die” order.
I started by stamping, coloring and die cutting three blooms. I added some white accents with a gel pen. I then used a new stamp for the ground, the stripes from Pink & Main’s pattern maker set. I used Altenew’s Green Apple ink. This is my first time using this stamp but I really like how it simulated grassy ground. Next I stamped the stems and leaves for the three floral images and colored. Then I cut the card using the largest stitched rectangle die (from My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax set 2) and added the die cut blooms.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
