Magical Dragons - "Birthday" Card

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to share a card I made using the adorable Magical Dragons Stamp Set from My Favorite Things, and my new Distress Oxide Inks...yep I got them all!  I made this card for the current My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch challenge - sketch 340.  

Here is my card...

I created the background using distress oxide inks which I sprayed with water.  T water was fused with some silver perfect pearls, so it's sparkling!  I colored the dragons with my kuretake zig markers, and went over the green with a green spica glitter pen.

I die cut clouds using "stitched cloud" dies from MFT,  adhered them to silver paper, and then cut out the clouds/paper layers using a circle die.  I trimmed off the bottom of the circle to finish it off.

The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from MFT's "Up in the Air" stamp set.

Peony Bouquet - "Congrats" Card

Hi Everyone!

Spring/Summer means a lot of engagements, bridal showers, and weddings!  I've been making some "congrats" cards just for that.   Here is a recent one...

I created the flowers using the layering Peony Bouquet stamp set from Altenew...gorgeous set!  There were 4 layers to the peony, but I used 3 layers for mine.  I used the "congrats" stamp from Honey Bee Stamps, and topped it off with some gems.  I layered it on top of some pink glitter paper, and then adhered it to the card.  I realized afterwards,  that I didn't stamp leaves time!
