Happy New Year With A Happy Card!

By | 01/01/2021

Happy New Year my friend!  I hope you had a wonderful evening and now you are ready to tackle the shiny New Year!

I have a very happy card to share today!

If you are a regular blog reader, you know that I am on the design team for Kinda Cute by Patricia and I LOVE it!   Patricia had a special deal at the end of December for her January Digi-of-the-Day.  She’s creating a digital image for every day in January and if you took advantage of her special, you will be receiving those in your email each day!  Lucky you!

I took up her challenge when she asked the design team if we wanted to let her select the images we would be coloring for this month!  Yes I did want her to select them!  When I browse through all of here images (there are almost 1500 of them!), I get distracted early on and never end up making it to the end of the list!

Plus…I love surprises!

Here is the card I made with today’s image which is called Boy Picking Flowers.Boy with Flowers digital image from kinda cute by patricia


The image included the boy with the flower, the basket, some little grass sprigs and a mouse.  I added the rocks, grass, clouds and sky, and the stone path.

I LOVE adding the backgrounds in with my Copics.  It feels like I’m really being artistic and I love adding my own details to the digital images because it really helps to make it my creation.

It’s pretty nice to start out with a fun image and this little guy is just adorable!

I cut my image scene down to 3-3/4 x 5″ and added it to a Lawn Fawn patterned paper from my stash that was cut to 4 x 5-1/4″.  For my card base, I’m trying some colored card stock from Cardstock Warehouse.  this is the Sirio Color Blu 80 lb. Cover stock.  I actually love the color and the weight of the paper is nice too.  It’s a nice bright navy that works well with that coral red I put on top of it.

Cardstock Warehouse had quite a variety of papers to choose from so I had a little trouble deciding which ones to try.  I had a nice coupon from their Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale, so I decided to stock up on a few colors that I knew I would use.  This package worked out to about 32 cents a sheet before I applied the discount.  I’ve been shopping around for the best card stock prices and these aren’t too bad and the paper is nice quality.  I ended up getting a few colors from several of their lines just to try them out.  I managed to get a couple of variety packs with multiple colors of card stock to try.  I still have another coupon to use in the next few months, so I’ll see how I like this and let you know!Boy picking flowers digital stamp by kinda cute by patricia
