Gnome rocking motorcycle

Hello there, and welcome!
Boy, time flies! I thought I would take the opportunity to work in the garden while I had a stretch of good weather. The weather and the yard work s-t-r-e-c-h-e-d on for several days. I lost track of time and my endurance level. Getting old is the pits!

Anyway, I finally took photos of the last KLM Designs cards I made. This first one reminds me of my younger days, not that long ago when hubby and I used to ride around our beautiful state on a Gold Wing, leaning into those corners. 

-The background is a smooshed Distress Ink background cut with a Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics Die.
-The cloud in the foreground is a piece of vellum colored with Copic marker and alcohol, cut with a stitched cloud die. (Marker colors B45 and C7)

- I followed the directions from one of the many online videos for interactive swing cards. 
-The sentiment was created on my ScanNCut.
- I printed the pre-colored image onto medium-weight card stock using my Epson Printer and cut it out with ScanNCut.

I hope you are having beautiful weather and find time to enjoy nature as well as create.

Beach Gnome Pop-Up Slider

Hello there, welcome to my blog.

Today's card is a favorite interactive card. It is a pop-up slider card that I often put gift cards into.
This one was so much fun to make. The image and sentiment are from this month's release at KLM Digital Designs .com. The two other sentiments included are, "Life is better at the beach", and "Enjoy the little things."

The printed papers are from a Craft Smart pad from Michael's. 
I printed the image and sentiment with my Epson printer on Pen and Gear card stock. I drew the background and colored the gnome with Copics. The rising water was made using alcohol ink on vellum with a touch of white and clear star gel pens. 

The slider die is from Sunny Studios.

Copics:   Skin-  E00, 21, 95
        Beard- YR14, 27, E37
        Sandal- E53, 55      Hat - Y11,Y21, Y26
        Shirt - Y02, E35, E17, YG13
        Pants - YG63, G24
       Sand- E40, E42, E84
       Sky- B000, B41


The inner sentiment is from Ocean Sentiments stamp set from Stampendous.

Have a good vibes kind of day 😉.

Inspired by McGuire!

Welcome to Creative Juice, my little card blog.

The two cards today were inspired by a Jennifer McGuire video. I have to admit I bought the stamps and dies she used. Isn't that why she works so hard to make such amazing videos. 

Anyway,  here are my versions.

Stamps and dies are from Concord and 9th.
