Floral Banner Thank you

Welcome and thank you for stopping by.

Today's card is a little thank you using a floral banner from KLM Digital Design's April release.

This is a pretty little banner with a delicate floral pattern. I used Copics on this and found it a little challenging to color at this size. I have a mixture of Copic markers so some of my markers make it a  little more difficult to get into tight spaces. Next time I will do a horizontal card and make the image bigger. In this format I probably should have used my pencils, but I didn't think of that at the time 😏

I forgot to keep track of the Copics I used (sorry) but I was thinking along the lines of cosmos. This would be really pretty as Forget-Me-Nots.

As I stated last time, I'm using many of my older supplies, including old stamp sets. This sentiment is from an old Stampin'UP set. Very old!

Paper: Georgia Pacific 110lb. card stock; Bazzil textured paper.
Dies: My Favorite Things Stamps

Please stay healthy, stay positive, have hope.

Free image in support of medical professionals

Back again with some fun news! KLM Digital Design has just released a free uncolored image of the The Medic in order for us to make cards for those professionals on the "front line". They have joined other companies providing crafters with resources to pay it forward.
Here is the card I made with him when he was first released. At the time I did not have any of the great sentiments that are with him now! Check out the details on their FB page.

Here is the code: Medical Gnome Freebie! Code: FIRSTRESPONDER

Let's send these to as many medical facilities, nursing homes, ambulance/fire services  as we can in our communities to show we appreciate their sacrifice.

Be well, be kind, be hopeful,


Mother's day KLM Gnomes

Welcome to Creative Juice, my little blog. I hope you like what you see and decide to visit again.
If you are a returning visitor thank you and welcome back.

Here is another Mother's Day card using some of the KLM Digital Design Gnome images.

This card uses the Mom gnome and the little girl. They are colored with Copic markers and backed by a watercolor panel that was made with Distress Inks.
I've been using a lot of the supplies that have been gathering dust for years. (Having to use what I have and not run to the store is a blessing.) I have a jar full of these little paper flowers and a drawer full of all kinds of "bling" left over from several weddings and showers. The last couple is on year 7! Time to use the stuff up and make room.

Mother's Day Lily April release

Hello, welcome to my blog. If you have visited before, welcome back and thank you.

Today is another Mother's day card using April release images from KLM Digital Designs. I kept this really simple. I arranged the image and the sentiment on my paper and printed it out, then die cut the layer. I masked the lily with a Post It and brushed on Pistachio and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks. I colored the lily with Copic Markers.
