I am not the most consistent blogger, but it's hard to find time to keep up. The hubby is away on business so I'm spending time with the boys at my parents house. Here's a fun card that I made using some My Creative Time dies and stamps. I do enjoy using the Cricut but I also like how quickly I can get a card done using dies, stamps and coloring. I watched a few You Tube videos on coloring with Copics and I'm getting the hang of it. I stamped a few of these balloons and did about 3 practice runs before getting the results I achieved on this one. I have been sketching and coloring since grammar school I think these Copics will be my new best friend.
To create the grass, I randomly cut three pieces of scrap paper and used 3 different cuttlebug folders. The balloon and clouds are from the Fly Away With Me dies and stamp sets by My Creative Time. The sentiment is from the Card Sentiments stamp set that comes with the 3x3 Trifold Card die. I don't have much crafting supplies at my house, just a Cricut and a few cartridges, a Cuttlebug with a couple of folders and a very small supply of paper and embellishments, so you can imagine how much I enjoy crafting when I'm in my mom's craft room!
