Ninja Thanks!

Earlier this month we had a very small get together for my son's 3rd Birthday. His uncle got him a bunch of Ninja stuff- costumes, nerf darts, little sticky Ninja guys and fun stuff like that. 

So, naturally, I had to make him a fun Ninja Thank You card! 

I used the image Ninja Tobie from Some Odd Girl. He's so perfect for what I wanted to do with this card! 

I colored Tobie with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers (colors below).  For the background of the card I just used a piece of brick patterned paper. I used the "stencil" that was left from cutting the image out on the silouette to ink a shadow on the background with Distress Ink.  I cut the THANKS out of glittered cardstock. The Ninja stars were cut from Mirror Cardstock on the Silhouette as well. And I finished it off with a few drops of Nuvo in the top corner.

Fairy Wishes

It's inspiration day at Scrapper's Delights. I'm sharing this card I made with the sweet little Ballet Fairy. 

I colored her with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers- no colors this time, I misplaced my list. 

I made the patterned background with a stencil and some Distress Inks. I finished with some ribbon and decided to leave a sentiment off for now. I couldn't decide what I wanted this card to be for so I'll add an appropriate sentiment once I know who I'l be sending it to. 

You can find more inspiration at the Scrapper's Delights blog.

Scrapper's Delights 3,000 Member Celebration!

Scrapper's Delights has recently reached 3,000 members in the Facebook Fan Group, We are celebrating with a little party this weekend,  Included in the celebration are some SUPER new releases - see what I did there?

This little guy is Batty Chibi. How cute is he!? There is a little version of this one as well. I just love them so much, I could not wait to get to to color him.

I colored him with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers (Color palette below). 

I cut all the embellishments out on my silhouette with plain white paper, with the exception of the ring around the planet, I cut that from gold glittered cardstock. 

I used distress inks on the planets and Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens on the stars. I really love the effect I was able to get with the Distress Inks. 

I finished it off with some glittery Nuvo Crystal Drops and adhered the image with some 3D foam squares. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and added white embossing powder.  

The inside says "You're Super!". We sent this to my Aunt as a Thank You card from the kids for all the Christmas presents she brought them. She sure does spoil them! But I guess that's what Great-Aunts are for. 

You can see more great projects with the new releases, and all the celebration activities at the Scrapper's Delight Facebook Group.
