Sunflower Mini Gram by Pickled Potpourri is a collage image that has a blank space to add a sentiment. I added a Thank You from Rose Sentiments by Pickled Potpourri. My card uses a background pattern from Authentique and one from Catelynne by Red Rubber Designs and one piece of yellow cardstock. The image is matted on Saguaro by Bazzill. Three sticker jewels were placed in the upper right corner. The image is colored with Copic Markers ( YG93, YG95, YG97, BG99, Y35, Y38, E57, E74, E79, T5)

Drea is leading the Red Rubber Inspirational Challenge this week - Just Wing It. This is one of my favorite stamp sets, called Flutter By from Red Rubber Designs. Today I'm trying a new technique introduced by Maile Belles, a design team member from PaperTrey Ink.
It is called Cutout Panels. You can see her tutorial here.
For my card I stamped the images on XPress It blending cardstock for Copics using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers ( YR12, YR14, YR16, YR18, YG95, YG97, Y06, E09, E39). Then I used a sponge and cloud template with Palette Reflection Blue ink to make the cloud background. Next I cut out the panel, as detailed in Maile's tutorial and trimmed around the butterfly. I used a strip of burnt orange Bazzill cardstock and embossed it with a Sizzix flower embossing folder to go behind the cutout panel. Then the front card is popped up on top with dimensional tape.
Wouldn't you like to enter this challenge using some stamps with wings? Come join in.

This is Pot of Tea by Pickled Potpourri. Aren't the little mice cute? I colored my image with Copic Markers (Y00, Y02, R63, RV66, G43, G46, N3, N4, N7, C3, C7) and matted it with yellow cardstock. The background papers are Authentique and also Catelynne by Red Rubber Designs. I added a ribbon and bow.

I think Tulip by Pickled Potpourri is such a pretty digital stamp. It is simple, yet elegant. It makes a pretty card for almost any occasion. In my sample I have cut the image with Spellbinders Labels 4 and placed it over a lace die cut. I colored it with Copic markers and used the Quik Pak Party in Pink By Red Rubber Designs for the background patterned cardstock. Corner jewels were added for accent.

What a peaceful look with this wicker bench and pillow! This is Sit Quietly by Pickled Potpourri. I'm using this card as an encouragement card and to let a friend know she is in my thoughts and prayers. I've colored the image with Copic markers. The background paper is from a Paper Studio pad called Kirby Teesdale.

Do you have a friend who is a race car fan? This is the perfect digital stamp set to make a card for him. Burnin' Rubber by Pickle Potpourri makes a fun birthday card for a racer.
My card, in red, white, and black, uses a red background with some black and white checked patterned paper to accent the race flags. I've colored the image with red Copic markers and used several shaped dies for the images. You can find this stamp set here.

It is summer and time for vacation and relaxing on the beach. This is the perfect combination of digital images to create a scene of your choice. The digital stamp sets are Beachy Keen and Day at the Beach by Pickled Potpourri. I colored the images with Copic markers and used some sand-looking background patterned paper, red matting for the images and cut die letters with red cardstock.
