Just for fun cards

So many times I have cards that are for either design team work or challenges, which I love but sometimes it’s fun to just make them~~just for fun, just because. These are some of those cards!

All the stamps are from The Angel Company. Many of you know I use to be a demo for TAC, was an angel for 4 years. I strayed away but I’m telling you, their latest catalog is just beyond awesome!

If you need an angel, let me know as several of my friends are angels~~ Michelle from my Flutter By Team was just named Angel of the year!!

Onto the cards~

This first one is from a retired set. I stamped the little bear twice and popped one up on pop dots for dimension.

  • card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
  • stamps: TAC Beary Happy Day,
  • paper: SU cardstock, DCWV Blossoms & Butterflies stack,
  • ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Glorious Green,
  • others: copics, nestabilities,
The next card uses a brand new set, Fibi and Lilly. So, so cute!! I wanted to use my Prismacolors and OMS as they’ve been neglected lately. I also used my copics a bit too though~ just remember if you use both, do the copics first or the wax from the Prismacolor pencils will ruin your copics.

I have to say I had forgotten how much I love my Prismacolors. I had so much fun coloring this cutie!

My inspiration for the layout and design of this card was THIS card by Michelle.

Have a happy day!!

What fun cards! I love the matching decorated insides. :) And I have a confession, I've never seen a TAC catalog! I don't know any demos in my area - I'll have to check out Michelle's blog for an on-line link. :)

Oh I so hear you. It's so fun to use an image "just cause you wanted to"! These are both adorable! Love the images and how you've placed them on the inside of the card to carry it through. Awesome!
