Thursday with some More My Favorite Things

Happy Thursday!! It is a happy day for me even though the day is gray and ugly. I didn't have to go to jury duty! That is always a call for celebration in my book.

Today I am going to share three cards I created. Two are using the My Favorite Things Lily dies and one is a Pure Innocence Image. They were so much fun to use.

For the lily cards, I die cut a bunch from white paper and then colored them in using Jennifer McGuire's Copic marker technique. Mine are in pink and I had to tweak them a bit but I like how they car out.

My first card I totally CASED a card I had seen by one of the designers, Karen Giron. If you have never seen her blog, run over and check it out. You would get lost in their FOR HOURS!! She rocks!! I used this card to "copy."

Instead of making a square card, I chose to make it a 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" card. I also chose to make it pink rather then in white like Karen did. I did a lot of layering on this, only using foam adhesive on the stitched panel and the thank you sentiment. I also used a bit of Wink of Stella pen to give the inside of the flowers a little sparkle.

I love how this came out, with the exception of the leaves. I did a terrible job with the Copics and the veins. Eek! Next time I will color them in with more finesse.

My second lily card was all me. Copying the design of the first card sometimes helps me with using the products all on my own.

I used an MFT stamp and PTI Raspberry Fizz ink to create the striped background. I love how it looks against the white.

My last card is a total shift from the two lily cards but I did use an MFT stamp to create it. I use the Pure Innocence "Blooming Good Day" that I have had FOREVER to stamp the image and then colored it in with Copic Markers.

I layered the image over PTI Royal Velvet card stock and patterned paper. The flowers were die cut with PTI button stack die cuts. I think she came out rather cute but again, I need some practice on my Copic skills.

I thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a great night!!
