Polka Dot Pals Amelia

There are new digital stamps at Little Miss Muffet Stamps today and two of them are additions to the Mermaid Warriors crew. Plus the third stamp is a tribute to all the teens graduating from school this month with an official "Polka Dot Pals Dab!"  LOL

I've created a card with the latest Polka Dot Pals Amelia rubber stamp and added on one of the new Polka Dot Pals Add-on Faces.  These faces will be released later this summer so this is a preview of one of the expressions.


I pulled out the red, white and blue paper pack by Pebbles called Americana. The rest of the items were taken from the stash from here and there. 


The Copic colors I used are:

R12, 14, 29, 46, 59
0, T2
BG11, 13, 32
B91, 95, 97, 99
E00, 31, 34, 23, R11, E25, 49
T4, 6, 8
R02, E04
YG17, 06, 67

Tall Cactus

For this card I've used Tall Cactus from DoveArt Studios. I was looking for a soft male card for a graduation so I chose colors that were less bold.  Then I doodled around the stamp to give it a border and created a simple card.


The sentiment is a word chippie from Make it Crafty and the paper is This & That from Echo Park.

Here are the Copic colors I used ... 
YG21, 23, 17, 93, 95, 97
G40, 24, 19
BG11, 32, 13
YR24, 23, Y32
BV23

Polka Dot Pals Ida

I love how this one turned out.  This is Polka Dot Pals Ida rubber stamp and I have stamped on a Polka Dot Pals Add-on Faces.  This is one of the new faces that will be available this summer so it's a sneak peek. 


Here's a close up of this darling face.  With her big grin, I was tempted to add braces but I ran out of time.  That's certainly something I'll do next time!


For those at Jennifer's Advanced Copic Boot Camp have the benefit to try out the new Add-on Faces stamp and also to try out Creative Color Placement and color a face of their own.  I know sometimes taking that step towards a fully colored face can be intimidating and these faces are great stepping stone to get there.  Plus with all the different sizes and shapes, you can see the endless possibilities for character.

The sentiment is a chipboard from Make it Crafty and there is always a variety to choose from.

 

The paper I used was We R Memory Keepers Anthology 6x6 paper.  
I used the following Copic colors:

BV25, 23
E29, 27, 25, 23, 21
R05, 02, 00
T4, 2, 0, W10
BG57, 11, 10
E34, 31, 00, 000, R11
YG17, 25, 23, 21, Y08
 
I'd like to include this in the following challenges:

Boat Harbor

Bonjour!  I've created this card using the Boat Harbor stamp from DoveArt Studios.  I wanted to color a little bit of water and these boats also allowed me to add in some colors. I've been short on boy cards so this worked out quite nicely with timing.  For more DoveArt inspiration you can visit the DoveArt Studios blog.


I found my felt stash so I've been keeping an eye out for a project where I could add some fluffy clouds and this one worked for the occasion.  The cheese cloth was used to symbolize a fishing net.  I still see cheese cloth but I think that's because I made it.  LOL 


Here are the Copic markers that I used for coloring:

YG25, 63, 17, G28, 24, 40
B91, 02, 04, BG 34, 10, 11, 13
E23, 41, 27, 31
R29, 14, 05
