Pam Sparks All Aboard 7.7.2016

I had so much fun coloring up this adorable train from the All Aboard stamp set! I colored with Copic Sketch Markers and hand cut all the pieces. TIP: I like to cut the images out before I color so there aren’t any white edges left after coloring. I accented here and there with the Extra Fine Point White Sharpie Pen.

For the background I die cut one of the Build a Scene Rolling Clouds in white cardstock and layered it on an A2 white card-base. Using the MISTI stamping tool, I stamped the words choo choo from the All Aboard set with TE Premium Dye Granny Smith Ink and the words under the track from the Loads of Fun stamp set with TE Premium Hybrid Oreo ink. 

Pam Sparks All Aboard 2 - 7.7.2016

I added the cloud layer to the card-base with a piece of thin white craft foam, glued the track directly to the card and mounted the train pieces with foam mounting squares.

A super fun and cute birthday card!

My second card for today is very CAS (clean and simple) but I loved it. An encouragement card for sure! This time of year with it being so hot, it could even be a card to encourage a friend to keep drinking water! lol

Pam Sparks Keep Chuggin 7.7.2016

I die cut the Train Track Border die in white and colored it to look like wood. The top track pieces are cut in silver metallic cardstock and glued on top. I stamped the sentiments from the All Aboard set with TE Premium Hybrid Oreo ink and the MISTI stamping tool.
