Sharing a little humor from the IODT gals!


While there is nothing funny about not feeling well...
Wally Whale is sure to bring a smile!
Nola Chandler is the artist behind this adorable image. In order to have the Get Whale Soon pair up closely to him, I masked the water spout before stamping so it would not show. 
The shaker frame is easy to make using IO's All-in-One Squares 2!

IMPRESSION OBSESSION DT THURSDAY

Hi there and welcome to IODT Thursday!

Today I am sharing with you a Z card.
These are simple and fun to make. I went with 3 panels but they can be as long as you like!


I started with a 13 1/4 x 4 1/4 sheet of white linen for the base.
Score at 4 1/4, 4 1/2, 8 3/4, and 9.
I wanted to pop some of the layers so I made the spine 1/4 inch to accommodate the extra bulk.



 The foral stamps are from Lindsay Ostrom. Each image is darling and great for a trio or individually. The sentiments are from the clear set called Flower Pots. This set includes 9 floral bouquets the pot ands 4 sentiments!

The colorful papers are from EP Hello Spring and Doodlebug Petite Prints. The images were colored with Copics. Glossy Accents was added along with bows tied in a baby fork! Bakers twine was used along the spines and tied with bows on the back.
The closed book measures 4 1/2 x 4 1/2.

Thanks for visiting!

Lindsay Ostrom has done it again with her adorable sea life images!
I used three of here new stamps to create the underwater scene. After stamping  I masked the images with eclipse tape and colored the BG with Copics. To achieve the water texture, blending solution was used on an old towel. The images were then colored with Copics. Glossy Accents and Spectrum Noir Crystal Clear was used to add extra detail.

The whimiscal unicorn shaker card was created using the Rainbow Unicorn Die
First the Unicorn was die cut in glossy white paper.  
Next, the Unicorn die was placed in the center of a circle die and run through the Vagabond at the same time. For this cut white Starmdream paper was used. These pieces are inlayed back into the glossy Unicorn die cut. The space under the rainbow was left open for making the shaker. 
The rainbow pieces and silk ribbons were colored with Copics.
I Wish For You was stamped in Seafoam and Baby Blue ink then heat embossed with clear EP.
The BG was made using alcohol inks.
