I first used the print and cut function in my Silhouette Studio for the flower and colored it with Zig markers.

Next I created the rectangle frame and used Spun Sugar and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide ink together with a mini stencil from Tim Holtz.

I printed the sentiment from the same set onto the front panel and adhered the frame and flower with foam tape to create some dimension.

Missees By Karin Joan - Birthday Wishes

Hi all!

For this card I wanted to stamp 3 Missees next to each other so I first made a mask by stamping 1 Missee (STAMPKJ15) and cut it out by hand.

I then stamped the Missee in the middle onto a piece of cardstock and added the mask on top of it. Then I stamped the right and the left Missee so the lines of their body are only stamped on the mask.

Missees By Karin Joan - Birthday Wishes

Then I removed the mask and colored the Missees with Copic markers.
The sentiment is from the same set and is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.

Next I used a stitched rectangle die to cut out this front piece.

I adhered a stroke of patterned paper (MPPKJ01) onto the card base and then added the front panel with foam tape to create some dimension.

Missees By Karin Joan - Little girl with great big plans

Hi all!

For this card I started by die cutting the head and body by using the Primarina set (BASICSDCKJ06) and paper from MPPKJ01. I also stamped the eyes, nose and mouth with Versafine Onyx Black.
I also die cut the hair and hair accessory using the same set.
The hair as wel as the clothes are from MPPKJ01.

Then I adhered the donut patterned paper from PPKJ03 to the card base and used foam tape to adhere the Missee on top of it.

The sentiment is from a vellum paper from MPPKJ01. I adhered it to a piece of pink cardstock from the same paper pad by adding some glue behind the golden dots. Then I used a yellow paper clip to add it to the card base.
