The theme for Eureka's challenge this week is farm animals...this could be fun! I found this cute farmer boy and some pig balloons in the Eureka shop.
I used Copics to color my image and watercolor pencils on the balloons.
The new Eureka challenge is up and this week's theme is picnic, so let's see what you can come up with!
This cat sure looks like he's enjoying a break on a hot afternoon! I used Lemonade Cat from Eureka.

I've got two cards to share with you today. My first one uses a Stamplorations set called Eclectic Florals. I colored some water in the jar with watercolors and added glossy accents over the top. I fussy cut the flowers and popped them up on foam dots. My sentiment came from a Paper Sweeties stamp set called Live Love Grow. Robin Egg baker's twine also from Paper Sweeties. I used a digital patterned paper for my background from Eclectic Anthology- from the Robin's Egg set.
This next one is my first attempt at a pop-up card. When I saw the Sweeties Stand at Paper Sweeties I knew I wanted use it to create a flower shop. The front uses Eclectic Anthology paper-Robin's Egg set. Robin Egg seam binding from Paper Sweeties. The sentiment was cut from a patterned paper by Pebbles. The flowers were made with Tim Holtz Tattered Flower Garland die.
The card base is made using Sizzix Pop 'n Cuts die. For anyone who wants to know about using it in a Cuttlebug- check out this post.
Paper Sweeties products used: Live Love Grow, Emma, I'm Having a Tea Party, Sweeties Stand, Robin Egg Seam Binding, Robin Egg Bakers Twine. Eclectic Anthology papers used: Robin's Egg, Sublime Lime. Stamplorations set used: Eclectic Florals.
*Note about the Paper Sweeties stand: it's the perfect size for the Pop 'n Cuts card-when folded flat it's about 1/2-inch from the card end.
