I really love this stamp set!  These quails are so adorable!!! I though this may be a great anniversary card and since my anniversary is next month, I am ahead of the game.  I stamped the sentiment “together is the best place to be” on the inside. Sorry I did not take a photo.

I did a bit of paper piecing and watercolor for my birds.  I then rock an rolled the Love This in juniper and peacock.  The birds were stamped in Archival Black and then I stamped them in peacock.  I then cut the breast panel on the one on the left and the top for the one on the right.

yuletide-joy-2016It was actually quite fun to create a festive card for the Holidays.

yuletide-joy-2016I decided to incorporate my favorite thing the New Flower Market Cartridge to create a fun accent with this adorable stocking.  I used the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the stocking.   I then used watercolors to add color to this stamped stocking.  The Flower Market cuts Holly Berry #MD7AA86,  Holly Branch Bundle #MD72DD2, and Pine Needles Branch #MD67851. I used the Red Enamel Gems Z3090 to replace the holly berries associate with the holly berry leaves. I added a little white watercolor splatter and used my white gel pen to make the stitching.

Adult Coloring ~ Sunshine Birdies 1 ~ March SOTM ~ CatScrapbooking.comI random stamped the birds, branch, and butterflies on my cardstock with Momento ink.  I decided to add in some flowers which came from Woodland Romance D1683.   I then took out my ShinHan markers and had a great time coloring.

Adult Coloring ~ Sunshine Birdies ~ March SOTM ~ CatScrapbooking.comI have to be honest in saying once I finished coloring I was not really sure what I planned to do :-)…. I just was so exited to color.  Well after thinking on it for a while this is what I decided to do.

Sunshine Birdies ~ You Makke Me Happy ~ Adult coloring ~ CatScrapbooking.comSo I decided t0 trim my colored cardstock and then cut into strips.  I then cut a Flower #m3faee from Artbooking.  I then masked off the You Make Me Happy and inked in Momento, Lagoon and Pomegranate. I then came back and colored the You and Make with my ShinHan markers.

Balloon Animals ~ Sock Monkey

I fell in love with this AWESOME card designed by Artsy Margi ~ Check it out HERE.  She saw the adorable monkey on the Balloon Animals as a sock monkey which is so clever.  So of course I wanted to give it a try.  Here is my take ~

Balloon Animals Monkey ~ Share the Love ~ Sock Monkey ~ CatScrapbooking.comI combined the two exclusive stamp sets which are only available this month ~ Balloon Animals S1602 and Share the Love CC1060 .  I followed Artsy Margi in using Chocolate ink and Desert Sands to create the sock monkey.  I stamped two monkeys one in each color.  I then cut the Desert Sands and pieced it on the Chocolate.
Supplies used:

Since the Balloon Animals and Share the Love stamp sets are only available this month, be sure to order yours before they are gone!!!

Don’t you just love these adorable balloons???? I love them! Here is the card that I came up with.Balloon Animals ~ Jungle card ~ Birthday Card ~ artistry ~ embossed ~ CatScrapbooking.comFor this card I punched three 1 1/2″ circles into a wood grain embossed cardstock.  I used the rock-n-roll technique with a twist on the animals.  The monkey was inked in Desert Sand then rolled in Chocolate.  I then came back with a tissue and removed a bit of the ink on the nose.  I then took a dauber with Champagne and inked the nose.  The giraffe was inked in Saffron and then rolled in Saddle.  The elephant was inked in Whisper then rolled in Slate.  I then took a tissue and removed a little of the ink in the ears, then using the dauber added a little Cotton Candy.  Then each animal was fussy cut.  The leaves are Artistry leaf #m411e88 and leaf border #m418c8f.
