You're the Jelly to My Peanut Butter Card - KaDoodle Bug Designs

I think my Design Team project for KaDoodle Bug Designs turned out totally cute! The PB & J sandwich images are from KaDoodle Bug Design's image set Cutesy Kids Breakfast.

The sentiment was written with my Explore Air 2 using the Cricut writing font Kyden and a Ranger Perfect Medium embossing pen - bullet tip. I then sprinkled Midnight Black Stampendous embossing powder and then heat set it with my heat gun. Who needs stamps when you have a Cricut Explore machine that can write your sentiments for you with an embossing pen.

For the pieces of bread I used Distress Ink Gathered Twigs to ink the edges using the Mini Ink Blending Tool. For the peanut butter I used Tim Holtz Metallic Kraft cardstock in copper. For the jelly I used Core'dinations Glitter Silk cardstock in purple. The pink hearts have a shimmer from using a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Clear Overlay pen. It's hard to see in the picture, but really shimmery in real life.

Thanks for visiting!

Bunny Cupcake Birthday Card - KDB

Today's card was made using a KaDoodle Bug Designs SVG file called Bunny Cupcake. It was pretty easy to put together. I had cut all the cupcake pieces from white watercolor paper and then I used Distress Inks and a water brush to color in the pieces. Once it dried I assembled the cupcake layers and used white Gelly Roll pen to add highlights. The bunny pieces were cut from Neenah shimmer cardstock and I wanted my bunny to looks "dirty" so I used Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and my water brush to go around the edges of the bunny pieces. The sentiment was written by the Explore Air 2 on a scrap piece of paper I did some Distress Ink technique on a few months back. See... don't throw away your "mistakes", you can always use them on other projects.

What I Used:
~ KaDoodle Bug Designs SVG file - Bunny Cupake
~ Distress Inks - Ripe Persimmons, Festive Berries, Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon, Worn Lipstick, and Hickory Smoke.
~ Gelly Roll pen - white
