March Card Challenges Day 1: My Spring card features the lovely Penny Black Stitched Flowers. I used Doodlebug twine to embellish. Simple coloring with markers, paper tearing and layering. And I added a stitched tag die by Technique Tuesday with 2 word stamps from my stash. I inked around the floral image edge with a dark brown to enhance. Easy peasy!
March Card Challenges Day 2: This was a day to create any kind of card and to embellish with buttons. Buttons aren’t my strong suit for sure but I included some! I used the darling Birthday Critter stamp set by Penny Black, Bazzil Cardstock in Berry Blush for the card, and patterned papers from my stash. I watercolored with Prima Watercolor Pencils using Prima water brushes. I stamped the image using Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black.
March Card Challenge Day 3: Palette challenge. I used an adorable set by Stamping Bella Bunny Pile Stuffies. I stamped the image with Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black onto Water color card stock, then colored in with Prima Watercolor Pencils using Prima Water Brushes. The pink textured cardstock is by Bazzil Cardstock in Berry Blush. I played with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Party Pink, it was a challenge for me, I need to figure out how to get the drops uniform sized. I found a great Youtube video for using Nuvo Crystal Drops! Check it out below!

March Card Challenge Day 5: For this challenge I went to my Pinterest Card and Rubberstamping Board and chose this card by Michelle Mills a Stampin’ Up demonstrator as my inspiration. I knew I had the perfect stamps to use. Unity Stamp Co. designed a set to benefit the animals harmed in the Australian wildfires. The set is called Koala-ty Friend and it is absolutely precious. 50% of proceeds benefit the Australian Wildfire Relief. The stamp set is so sweet and versatile. I’m not affiliated but as an animal lover it touches my heart.
March Card Challenge Day 6: I kept this one very simple. Just black ink on a kraft panel. I used Hero Arts Daisy and Bug set that includes dies.
March Card Challenge Day 7: This one was a lot of fun! And easy, didn’t really have to think about colors since I really only had the one in different shades. I used Penny Black Birthday Critters and washi tape from my stash.
March Card Challenges Day 8 Cute Animals: I used If Cows Could Talk by Taylored Expressions. Plus a premade card and papers from my stash. Along with Pink Fresh Studios Stitched Rectangle Dies, and Nuvo Ebony Black Crystal Drops for the eyes. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color.
