Cuteness Overload

I love this sweet image from The Paper Shelter named “All Wrapped Up” and had fun creating a flurry of snowflakes just for her joy. The snowflakes were made with a Lawn Fawn die set and two snowflake punches. colored the cutie with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen, then fussy-cut the image and mounted her to the card front with foam tape to make her "pop up." The final touch was to add a bit of fuzzy texture with a wonder cotton ball that came from a bottle of asperin. I saved it because it isn't the fake cotton but the real thing. It came apart in wonderful layers that were easy to glue to the hat. The sentiment on the inside of the card is from a Beccy’s Place digi set named “Seasonal Windows.”

My second card features a cute image from All Dressed Up that is a Freebie. You can find it HERE. I printed the little pup on kraft paper, coloring him with a few  Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. I paper pieced the ribbon and bow with the same patterned paper that I layered behind the image. The wonderful sentiment is part of the sentiment. It makes me smile!

My final card for this posting is also adorable. The image from Tiddly Inks is named “Thanks a Latte.” My card was inspired by one of the cards featured on the Tiddly website, loving its shabby chic beauty. The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. I paper pieced the tablecloth, cups and embellishments on the inside of the card, by printing those segments of the image on several different patterned papers, then fussy cutting them, and adding a bit of shading and highlighting. To add some depth to the card I added foam tape behind the tablecloth and cups on the front of the card. The inside sentiment is a freebie from HERE.
