AAA Cards #67-Googley Eyes

Happy Thursday everyone. This week has flown by!! I want the summer to go a bit slower as I love having it off!!

Today I want to show you three cards that I created with BoBunny Emoji stamps. These have been sitting in my stash for months because I was not really happy with them when I got them.

These were not very expensive and made from acrylic-something I just need to stay away from. I prefer photopolymer clear stamps. Acrylic never stamps very crisply, even with my MISTI tool. I really liked the expressions on their faces, though, so tried to work around the cons of these stamps.

For each of the emojis, I stamped in black and colored in with Copic markers. I added google eyes in different sizes to make them more festive.

Each of these cards I decided to make really clean and simple. For the first card, I just die cut a square of white card stock and used foam to pop it off the card.

I then just layered the emoji over it, again using foam adhesive. The sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn set "Into the Woods."

For my second card, I decided to make a get well card. Again, same basic design but I chose a distress faced emoji and used a larger square, as well as a more prominent word bubble. 

Again, I chose a Lawn Fawn sentiment, this time using the set "On the Mend." I also altered the die cut from Lawn Fawn's "A Little Birdie Told Me" set to fit the sentiment in. 

My last card I added a piece of red patterned paper behind the emoji for a POP of color. Instead of using an all white square, I framed the heart paper with a white frame that I die cut and then used foam adhesive to give it some dimension.

It is hard to see but I added red gel pen to the heart eyes rather then google eyes and stamped a sentiment from Lawn Fawn's "Woodgrain Backdrops" in red

I am entering the first two cards in AAA Cards Game #67-Googley Eyes. Have not entered many challenges of late and thought this would be fun.

I thank you for stopping by today. Have a fabulous night!!
