Here in Georgia, the weather is fine, the trees are blooming, the birds are building their nests, and wouldn’t you know the most adorable bunnies showed up in my craft room wanting to make a grand entrance as well. They hopped right over and posed for a Pretty in Pink Bunny Delight portrait.

This was perfect timing for the Fusion Card Challenge – Pretty in Pink. Fusion Card Challenges allow three variations to a crafter’s designs. First choice, you can choose just the template layout; second choice, you can choose the color theme; or, you can combine both into one design. I decided to stick with the color theme of PINK.

Once the bunnies were settled down and ready for me to create, I stamped their images onto Spectrum Noir cardstock using Fun Stampers Journey Spring Fling stamp set. I then colored them with the following Sprectrum Noir Alcohol Markers: The bunnies heads and bodies IG1 and IG2; their ears, feet, bellies, cheeks, and noses PP1. This was a very simple and easy coloring project. Great for beginners. They are just too cute.

The base of the card is Fun Stampers Journey Whip Cream cardstock, and the mat with a large oval cut out of it is FSJ Watermelon Fusion cardstock.  I stamped circles with FSJ Watermelon Fusion ink from the FSJ Planner Sketch stamp set. An acetate sheet was placed behind the Watermelon Fusion mat. The zig-zag accent mat is from Pink and Main Spring Fling 6×6 paper stack. The Watermelon Fusion mat is raised using a double layer of foam tape. The bunnies are popped-out using FSJ Foam Squares Medium. The sequins in the oval are assorted sequins from my stash (Note: a horizontal strip foam tape about a 1/2″ up from the bottom of the oval to keep the sequins from “disappearing” when the card is upright). The final touch is a double bow created from SU! pink ribbon.

Such a cute card.

Here is the post featuring the last of the three cards we made this weekend. I used the card sketch from the Fusion Interlocking Hearts Card Challenge. This design features Pink and Main Rain Frogs stamp set. This set is just too cute. Here is the sketch and the image of the stamps in the Rain Frog set:

            

The frog and umbrella, rain boots, and sentiment were stamped on Spectrum Noir cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The images were colored with Spectrum Noir markers. I will admit I didn’t write down the colors I used but I think I can give a good guess as to which ones I used.

The frog – DG1, DG2, DG3, DG4. The umbrella – TN2, TN3, CT1, CT4, DR1, BP5. The raincoat and raindrops – TB1, TB2, TB3, IB1, IB2. The rainboots – CT1, CT4, DR1, BP5, TB1, TB3, TB8. The words – BP5, TB2. The frog and rainboots were cut out using a Brother Scan n Cut 2. The sentiment was fussy cut. All images were popped up using FSJ Foam Squares. The base printed cardstock and the yellow with white polka dot banner were from a Pink and Main paper pack. Love the designs. The circle mat was cut using a FSJ pierced die from FSJ Whip Cream cardstock. The embossed mat was cut from FSJ Huckleberry Fusion cardstock and embossed with a We R Memory Next Leveling embossing folder. Both mats were die cut with stitched rectangle dies (one from Simon Says and the other from My Favorite Things). The banner was matted on a piece of FSJ Watermelon Fusion cardstock. Last but not least FSJ Journey Glaze was added to the raindrops and puddle as well as the toes of the rainboots.

So cute!

This past weekend a very dear friend’s daughter, Paulina, celebrated her Quinceanera. I wanted to make her a very special card for her birthday using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, because I, my daughter and son, and my friend, Cheyenne, bought her 84 Spectrum Noir markers. Woo Hoo! I know she will make some incredible art projects using her markers.

I thought the Fun Stampers Journey Media Artist girl was the perfect stamp to create a card for Paulina. I stamped the image on SU! Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. This is the best cardstock I’ve found for coloring with alcohol markers. It took me about two hours to complete the coloring. To get a smooth finish, you have to take your time and work coloring small areas at a time. I tried to video tape the process, but the battery gave out before I was finished.

Lest any of you think I just throw together cards with no mess ups or problems. I had to pull this card apart about five times before I was satisfied with how the card looked. I decided about the fourth go round to make a shaker card, and I think this was a great choice. Here is the first picture before I stamped the flowers onto the card.

 

After I took this picture, I decided to stamp the flowers that is part of the FSJ Media Artist girl stamp set onto the card using SU! Midnight Muse. Here is the final card.

I absolutely love this card and I hope you do too!
