Hola everybody!

I’m absolutely thrilled and honored to be a guest designer for My Favorite Things this month. Thanks for inviting me! I totally fell in love with the dragons from the Magical Dragons stamp set — they are not scary at all and suitable for any occasion. I made three different cards to show you how versatile they can be.

My first card is perfect for a child. I love giving cards to my kids just to tell them how special they are and how much they mean to me. Isn’t the baby dragon adorable?

I stamped all of the elements, colored them with Copic markers, and used the matching dies to cut them out. The cloud is cut from white card stock and the paper is from the Lucky Prints 6×6 Paper Pack. I embossed the sentiment with platinum embossing powder.

My second card is more spiritual with a colorful sky background that I inked with distress inks. I masked the dragons with masking paper and added a die-cut moon from the Spooky Sweets stamp set and stars that I cut from silver card stock using the Stars in the Sky – Vertical Die-namics.

I embossed the sentiment from the Essential Sentiments stamp set in white on a strip of black card stock and cut a fish tail on one of the ends.

My third card is fun and masculine with the wood-like frame cut with the Essential Cover-Up – Vertical Die-namics. I added even more manliness with mini screw brads.

After stamping and coloring the images, I added some scales and shadows with a black Copic pen to really make the images pop. I also adhered some tiny hearts covered with Glossy Accents on the eyes of the princess. I saved a lot of hassle by adhering a strip of Stick-it adhesive on the back of the paper before fussy cutting the images. Gluing them was easy peasy!

That’s all for today! I had a blast, and I hope that you did as well watching these awesome dragons in action! I’ll be back in late August with more inspiration for you. Hasta la vista!

    Great Cards!
    I like the way you colored the dragons
    and made the night sky!
    My favorite is the last one with the detail
    on the dragon & his surprise at her infatuation!

    All three of you cards are super cute. Love the little details you added like the heart eyes and the creative use of the cloud as a thought bubble.
