Crafty Friends....

A little something....
    Hello!  Today's card features some products from SimonSaysStamp and Lawn Fawn.  I decided to water color these adorable images so I chose to give Zig Clean Color real brushes a try.  I first stamped images onto water color paper using Archival ink, then began coloring images.  Next, I die cut squares and scalloped boarder.  Lastly, I assembled elements and adhered to card base.  Thanks so much for stopping by...take care!

You Float my Boat...
    Happy Friday!... hope everyone enjoys this holiday weekend.  With Memeorial Day being the unofficial start to summer, I decided to go with a "water/beach" theme.  This card features products from Lawn Fawn, SimonSaysStamp, and Tim Holtz Distress just to name a few.  I began by trimming card stock to an A2 sized card and die cut circle.  Next, I applied inks over a masked stencil onto the card base and circle.  Then stamped image and die cut.  Finally, I assembled, adhered circle to card base using fun foam, and stamped sentiment.  Thanks so much for stopping by...take care!

Sunshine and Rainbows...
     Hello :) hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.  For today's card I decided to go pink and glittery! This card features several products from the amazing people at Paper Smooches.  I chose to keep this card "cool" by utilizing several cool colors: pink, purple, blue, and green.  To begin, I die cut rectangle panel then die cut rainbow into panel (die cut inlay technique).  Next, I stamped images then Copic colored unicorn. I assembled images onto card base and added some Wink of Stella to the unicorn for some added shine. Lastly, I added a sprinkling of sequins.  Thanks so much for stopping by...take care!

The Sky is the Limit...
       This is my second posting for today...making up for lost time I suppose.  lol. To begin I stamped this "crazy" bird from Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz collection onto Strathmore mixed media paper to practice my water coloring technique.  Next, I die cut "torn notebook" by Sizzix/Tim Holtz alterations.  I then applied Tim Holtz distress ink "rusty hinge" over SSS diginol stripe stencil.  To finish the card I stamped sentiment and adhered image to card base using a trimmed down piece of fun foam.  Thanks so much for stopping by...take care!
"happy birthday" card:
                I first would like to apologize for my absence this week, it just flew by.  I'm sure you all can relate. 😊.  This card features this adorable lobster clear stamp from "Darcie's Heart and Home: Seaside Buddies".  I thought we would make a cute and fun birthday card.  I die cut the circle out of Tim Holtz distress water color paper then applied distress inks over "SSS wave stencil".  Next, I stamped image and Copic colored.  I then stamped the bubbles, applied glossy accents, and let dry.  To finish the card, I adhered a few enamel dots and gave the card a little dimension by added fun foam to the back of the circle panel.  Thanks so much for taking a look...take care!

       oh Happy day!...Wishing everyone a happy start to the work week.  I have not been able to get the color purple off of my mind for the past couple of days, purple stripes just keep popping up (lol).  I began by masking of the tag then applying paint then heat setting.  Next, I stamped these adorable images then colored using Copic markers.  I then stamped background (keeping the theme "purple").  Lastly, stamped sentiment and assembled card.  To give the card a little dimension I adhered some fun foam to the tag and adhered to the card base.  Thanks so much for stopping by...take care!

      Hello and welcome!  I chose this card to share with you all for my very first post...super excited!! This card showcases products from Lawn Fawn, Hero Arts, and Avery Elle.  I began by trimming down card stock to an A2 sized card.  Then die cut two rectangle panels.  Stamped "houndstooth" background stamp using pigment inks.  Next, I began stamping the images then heat embossed cactus and flower using clear embossing ink.  To give this card a little dimension, I foam "popped" the catcus and flower up off the panel.  Lastly, stamped sentiment and assembled card.  Thanks so much for looking...take care!
