Kennedy Grace Creations Grace's Little Note Card

 Today's post is using the Kennedy Grace Creations Grace's Little Note.  So many images are great to compliment another larger image, but today I am going to use this often overlooked one, to make a simple card. One that have intended for a dear friend. 
  First, I loved how fast and easy it was to use this particular image to make a square card, or even to use it to frame another image. I used my MISTI tool to align the stamp for this 4 1/2 inch square center piece, and then just fliped it for each side, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad. The sentiment was from the Time to Blossom stamp set. It is a sweet and thoughtful card and I plan on making more. Great to send to friends far and near. The Sequins were Enchanted Evening which is a collection of  sparkly sequins, stars, seed beads in green tones, and gold, and was the perfect compliment of to the violet colors. 
Here are the Copic Sketch markers I used: YG06, YG11, YG13, V12, V15, V17, 0. 
  Once colored I chose a complementary violet-purple cardstock to bring out more of the deeper violet colors in the flowers. The white paper used for the image and card base are Nenah Bright White #110 pound paper. I added the ribbon to soften the card and bring a feminine touch to it. 
  A card with these pretty flowers and this sweet and thoughtful sentiment is perfect for so many occasions and will delight whomever receives it. For this reason, I plan on making many more of them. Hope you enjoy it as well.
                                                 Yours truly,

House Mouse Umbrella Shade Relaxation

Today, I am using one of my favorite little Stampendous House Mouse Umbrella Shade stamp (SKU #: HMCP47).
Here are my supplies:
Copics: Umbrella: YR14, YR16, YR18, E21. Mouse: E00, R20, E21, E23, E33, E53. Sand: E50, E21, E33. Shell:  YR14, YR16, E21, RV21. Glass: C01, BG70. Lemonade: Y08, Y11, Y13. Clouds and Ice: B0000.
I handcut a "sky" piece and shaded with a Copics B0000 Sketch Marker. I don't know if you noticed, but I made my sweet little mouse with a bit of sunburn. I also put the paper fringe as if he is sitting at the water's edge. Hope you enjoy my interpretation of "Summertime" as a fun day of relaxing under an umbrella at the beach.

Dies: Jullian Vance stitched rectangle nested dies.
