Hello everyone! Didn't I tell you that this was a super fun release?!? Well, it's time for the My Creative Time ~ Sneak Peek Week : Day 3. And today we are all showcasing the super terrific new set called: Fun Pockets. I have been waiting and waiting for some fun pocket dies and Emma did it again!!! They are AWESOME!!!
This set is so great that I have 2 cards for you today. Here is the first one:
Doesn't it just make you want to smile? :) The black card base and the white background piece are from Recollections. The fun blue background is from the Fancy Pants Designs ~ Beach Bum collection. For some fun dimensional clouds, I used a real cotton ball and just spread it apart to look all whispy!
All of the fun papers for the sun are from the Fancy Pants Designs ~ Beach Babe collection. If you look closely, you can see that I made the rays of the sun with the awesome tag die in the brand new My Creative Time ~ Here's Lookin' At You stamp set. The cute face is from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Funny Flowers stamp set. I used some chalk for the cheeks, a white ~ Sakura Gelly Roll pen for the highlights, and Tim Holtz ~ Distress Markers for the mouth and nose. I also used a black ~ Zig Writer pen for the stitching around the edge of the circle.
I used two different sentiments for this card. The sweet "You're still my sunshine!" is from the brand new My Creative Time ~ Fun Pockets stamp set. I used Versamark ~ Watermark Ink and white ~ Stampendous Embossing Powder for the embossing with this sentiment. And the always classic "I love you" sentiment is from the My Creative Time ~ You're My Best Buddy stamp set. I used simple black ~ Ranger Archival Ink for this sentiment.
Here is card #2:
I told you the pocket dies were great!!! Isn't this one so pretty? Ok, the black card base and the outermost white background piece are from Recollections. The pretty blue paper is from the SEI ~ Desert Springs collection. The top white cardstock is X-Press It Blending Card paper. I always use that when I am going to color with my Copics.
This wonderful sentiment, these beautiful flowers and the very pretty pocket are all from the brand new My Creative Time ~ Fun Pockets stamp set. I used black ~ Ranger Archival Ink for all the stamping. I used Copic ~ Sketch Markers for the coloring of the flowers (still practicing with those...lol). If you look closely, you can see that in the center of the flowers are Queen & Co. ~ Twinkle Goosebumps gems. They are so pretty up close...I just love them. And for the pocket, I used some pop dots underneath the top layer to give it a little more dimension. Also, with this pocket I put some white cardstock behind the little holes (I thought it just looked better for this card).
For the bottom of the card, I used a super fun new tool: the Creative Memories ~ Border Maker System : Picket Fence Cartridge. It's the perfect cut to weave ribbon through...I just love that look! The ribbon is from my stash. And the pretty "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment is from the My Creative Time ~ More Gift Card Sentiments. Again the ink is black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.
Well, those are my two cards for the day. Both pretty and cheerful ~ enough to make anyone smile I think. :) I hope you like them.
