Rainbow Beary Merry "Celebrate" card

Hi Everyone,

I hope you're having a wonderful week. 

I felt like creating something with a rainbow again, and so I made another card for the Little Tangles challenge - I gave the bear a rainbow belly using my markers, and he's wobbling around against a rainbow Distress Ink background. I must say, I absolutely love how this background turned out - I'll need to create a few more! :o)

The bear is on an action wobble, hence he bounces around happily - I think it's only adequate for celebrations, isn't it? I am loving the Neat and Tangled die, too - it's the first time I've used it, and that font simply really appeals to me... I might need to get the "awesome" one, too! 

I was considering adding a few sequins as embellishments, but in the end decided against it - I think there's enough going on on the panel already... 







I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Little Tangles - Rainbow
Simon Says Stamp - Work it Wednesday (Spring)

See you again soon,
Mirella

Spring with Simon Says Stamp and Spectrum Noir

Hi Everyone,

When you look out the window, do you see spring yet?! I still don't see too much of it in Helsinki, but I can definitely feel and smell it in the air! And no, it's not wishful thinking, this time I think it's for real! The sun is shining, the temperatures are becoming a bit easier on the skin, and... I don't know, it just feels like spring is really finally coming! YAY!

I have been in a spring-like mood for a while now, all thanks to card making - I've been trying to focus on happy floral images and colours! Don't you just love this hobby? :o)

In the last few days, I have been playing with a set of Spectrum Noir sparkle pens that I got from a crafty friend quite a while ago. I am so glad I finally gave them a go - the results are truly wonderful! To start with, I have created quite a few flowers from the SSS Spring Flowers stampset (I heat embossed the images in white on a kraft-like cardstock, coloured them with the sparkle pens & fussy cut them), and now whenever I have a short while, I am trying to put together a card with the images. 

Below are my first two attempts. I hope you like them. I had the idea of turning these flowers into butterflies since I bought this set (which is when it was first released ages ago!), but I only finally did it now! And let's just say you might see a few more of these soon... 





And now the butterflies out of flowers - I love them so much!
By the way, isn't the shimmer from the pens just amazing?!






I am entering these into the following challenges:

Have a great week,

Mirella
