Sugar and Spice Marci Happy Day Card

Here is my card for the latest sketch from Card Patterns: Sketch 169:

Here is the sketch:

Unfortunately I missed the cut off for posting my card by about 6 mins!!! Oh well, at least I have a new card!! :)

Anyway, I have used the following:
  • a kraft card and envelope from Envelope Solutions
  • some blue textured card stock from DCWV, cut into a banner and then used on the envelope
  • a piece of floral paper (I have no idea where it came from!), inked on the edge with Aquamarine Vivid! ink
  • a glittered die cut by from Making Memories
  • Sugar and Spice Marci (La-La Land Crafts) digitally stamped on to X-Press It paper and then hand coloured with Copics pens (hair: E35; skin: E00; lips: lipstick Spica pen; headband, dress and shoes: B02, B05, RV13; spoon: E31; cupcake: E31, RV10, R35)
  • 'happy day' stamp from inkadinkado stamped in Aquamarine Vivid! ink.
This card are also displayed in the La-La Land Crafts Customer Gallery.
This card is for sale on Etsy, in my shop: JemLou Productions. Click here for the link.

Thanks for looking! :)

Christmas in July

I'm getting ready for the Promoting Creative Friends Christmas in July event.
I just sent these four cards to the two lovely ladies that are organising the Christmas in July Scavenger Hunt:

All four are coloured with Copics pens! I am still working out the whole shading thing! :)
Also, because the Copic pens go through the paper, I adhered a piece of Christmas paper to the inside front part of the card.

So I have used Sunny Christmas Marci and Sunny Christmas Luka digital stamps from La-La Land Crafts, printed on X-Press It paper, which I have coloured with Copics pens (skin: E00; lips of Marci: Lipstick Spica pen; hair: E35; Marci's dress, headband and thongs: R32, R35, E31, E02/RV13; lights that Marci is holding: B05 (string), YG00, B02, R35, YG03 (top), RV10, YG00, B02, YG03 (bottom); Luka's clothes, hat and thongs: YG03, B02, B05, Clear Spica pen; Luka's presents, bag and candy cane: YG00, B02, E31, R35, YG03, RV13).

The tags were in my stash (I bought them from a Craft show last year), the Baker's twine is from Koko Vanilla Designs and the Merry Christmas stamp is from Jo-Ann Craft Essentials, stamped with Rich Cocoa ink by Memento/Tsukineko.

These cards/tags are also displayed in the La-La Land Crafts Customer Gallery!

I will definitely make some more of these (perhaps with more Christmassy colours!! :)) and list them on Etsy in my shop: JemLou Productions.
Thanks for looking! :)

In the Promoting Creative Friends Team on Etsy, we are doing Christmas in July....we are also doing another Scavenger Hunt, amongst other events.
Here is a cute picture of a pig, advertising the Scavenger Hunt:

More details to follow.....I need to finish off my gifts and send them first! :)
My shop will be participating in the Scavenger Hunt event.

Hopefully I will post something over the next couple of days with some new items for the Christmas in July event!
