                  Heart Balloons for You

                  Where do you get your inspiration when you are creating? It's easy for me, especially when I have the opportunity to use one of the darling Sasayaki Glitter images. Today I am sharing a card I made using the very cute Heart Balloons digital stamp -

                  I loved creating this little monochromatic scene for her using cloud dies and a background paper with similar clouds. She was colored with Copic markers. A few jewels were added for a bit of extra interest. I'll add the sentiment later when this cards purpose is decided.

                  I'm so glad you stopped by. Be sure to pop into the store to see ALL the wonderful Sasayaki Glitter images and we would be so happy to see you in our Facebook group too!

                  The beginning of a month means a new release at Sasayaki Glitter. I don’t always make videos for the release but when I saw this image I knew I just had to make a card for it.
                  I started by printing the image, which is called Beeutiful, onto some alcohol marker friendly paper. I then die cut it with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Oval die and began colouring.
                  I used my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers for the colouring. I used pale skin tones and golden brown shades for the hair. Her dress and shoes I coloured yellow, and I added just a touch of very pale blue to her wings. For the bucket I used browns in different tones than I’d used for her hair.
                  The honey was a challenge, even though there’s such a small amount. I wasn’t sure what colour combo to use. I asked for advice on the Kit and Clowder Facebook page and also had a play around with colours. I eventually settled on EB1, GY3 and GY1, to which I added a light layer of CT1. This gave the kind of golden-brown tone I was after. I added a little white gel pen for highlighting, too. I used the same colour combination to add my grounding to the image.
                  Having completed the image I moved on to the rest of the card. I pulled out what I have left from the Love From Lizi March card kit. I used the dies and some of the papers to cut hexagons and played around with tiling them on my card until I was happy with the result. I then adhered them in place with double-sided tape and popped up my focal panel over it with foam tape.
                  I added my sentiment using the hexagon stickers from the card kit. I partially overlapped my focal panel with them, and added foam tape where they overhung the edge of the panel. Finally I used a Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen to add shine to the wings and honey.
                  I’m really pleased with this card. The colours work so well together, and the hexagons are just perfect for a bee theme. It really came together perfectly! If you like this card and want to check out the rest of the release you can find them at the Sasayaki Glitter store, here.

                  It’s time for me to share another Sasayaki Glitter card and video with you. This time I created my card to have a sweet storybook feel to it with the help of some textured ink blending.
                  I started by printing the Happy Mouse digi stamp onto some alcohol marker friendly paper. I sized it to fill my card front. I then coloured the mouse brown using my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers. All the colours used in my colouring can be found in the video.
                  Once I’d finished colouring the mouse I moved on to colouring my background. I started by using an Ink Blending Tool with Altenew Forest Glades ink to create my grass. Initially I was intending to go for a smooth ink blended look, but I soon changed my mind and decided to go with a more sponged, textured look.
                  Having completed the grass I moved on to the sky. I used Ocean Waves ink with a make-up sponge for blending, and used a mix of dabbing and rolling motions to create my texture. I then returned to the grass and added more texture with another make-up sponge.
                  I went back to my alcohol markers to finish colouring the other elements of the card such as the butterflies and flowers. With these I was less concerned about shadows than I had been with the mouse as I really wanted the mouse to remain the focal point on the card.
                  Next I put the panel in my MISTI and lined up a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp’s Beautiful Day which I stamped with Altenew Dusk Ink. I had considered using black ink but decided I liked the softer look from the Dusk ink, which is just a little darker than the Ocean Waves I’d used on the sky.
                  I really like how this card turned out. The texture of the sponging works really well with the image, and it really does give a fun storybook feel which is just what I was going for. The sentiment fits nicely with the rest of the card, and I’m very pleased with the colouring on the mouse.

                  Between being ill, being out of the country, and some technical difficulties I haven’t uploaded a video in a little while. Today I finally have a video to share, which is one I made for Sasayaki Glitter Digi Stamps. I also have a bit of a back log of videos to finish up and get shared with you, so look for those coming later this week!
                  I started the card by printing the Gift Amy image onto some alcohol marker friendly paper. As I mention in the video, the paper I used this time was a different one than my preferred paper, and I had trouble with it bleeding. I won’t be using it for colouring in future! I used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers to colour in the image, and the colours I used are shown in the video.
                  Once I had finished the colouring I carefully fussy cut out the image. It was fairly straight forward to cut. I did my fussy cutting right up to the lines, not leaving any white border. For the area between Amy’s legs I used my craft knife.
                  Setting the image aside I moved on to my background. I stamped the Uniko Background Blocks Party Confetti stamp directly onto my card base using AltenewMountain MistVolcano Lake and Lagoon Dye Inks (which all come in the Northern Lights ink set). I went for an ombre look with the centre darkest, though most of it ends up hidden behind the image.
                  I decided to add score lines all around the confetti panel to help it stand out from the background more, then added a birthday sentiment from the Creative Expressions John Lockwood Lily of the Valley stamp set, which I stamped with Lagoon ink.
                  I’m really pleased with this card. The background works wonderfully with the image. I’d intentionally chosen the Altenew inks to coordinate with the colour of her dress. Colouring was a bit of a challenge with the paper I used but I managed in the end!
