Good morning and Happy Sunday everyone!

Today’s card features Pretty Pink Posh, Flourishing Fuchsias and Encouraging Greetings stamps set.   First, I stamped the Flourishing Fuchsias with Memento black ink pad onto a 4″ x 5″ Neenah Solar White #80 card stock.  Then, I stamped the leaves on some solar white Neenah scraps.  I colored the Fuchsias and leaves with Copic markers (RV 13, 17, 21 and 55 for the flower and YG 13, 17 and 23 for the leaves) and fussy cut out the two leaves with scissors and placed them aside.   I also stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx black ink pad and heated embossing it with Hero Arts clear embossing powder.  I glued on the two leaves and used a light grey Copic marker (C3) to color around all the stamped elements to form a shadow.

Stuck on you

Happy weekend, everyone!

Today’s card features Simon Says Stamp, One Cool Pineapple stamp set.  I am so in love with this stamp set and love all those sentiments in it.  I started with watercoloring some Distress Inks (candied apple, squeeze lemonade, carved pumpkin and mowed lawn) on watercolor paper to make the background and waited until it completely dried.  Then I stamped and heated embossing the sentiments “Stuck on you” onto the background with Versa Mark, watermark pad and Hero Arts, clear embossing powder.

I stamped the Cactus with Memento black ink pad and colored it with Copic markers.  I also added some dots with a black gel pen on the cactus and cut it out with scissors (I love fussy cutting).   Then I used Martha Stewart’s flower punch to punch out a few flowers and watercolored them with Distress ink to match the background.  I also used a white gel pen to add some details onto the flowers and then glued them on to the cactus and next to the sentiment.  I then added it onto an A2 Bazzill, Circus Peanuts card stock.

Smile Card

Good morning and Happy Sunday everyone!

Today’s card I used all My Favorite Things products.  I created the background first by blending three Distress Oxide inks onto a four by five and a quarter inches Neenah Solar White #110 pounds card stock.  Then, I stamped the Radiating Halftone background stamp with Versa Mark watermark stamp pad onto the Distress Oxide ink background.  I also sprayed some Sheer Shimmer Spritz onto the background to make it shiny.

I die cut the Smile sentiment from the background and cut three extra layers from #110 pound Neenah card stock and stacked them to make the sentiment raised up.  I colored the Birthday Chicks with Copic markers and placed them where I wanted them to be.  Then, I stamped and heated embossing the “enjoy your special day” sentiment with Versa Fine onyx black ink pad and Hero Arts clear embossing powder.

Sending my love card

Happy Sunday everyone!  I had an amazing day yesterday  at Hero Arts, joining a group of amazing crafters at the Coloring Challenge Road Trip with Kathy Racoosin.  I learned a lot of coloring tips from Kathy and got to apply them to this card that I made today. unnamed-9

Magnolia was colored with Hero Arts liquid watercolor.  I stamped a frame stamp from Rubbernecker and blended the outside border with blueprint sketch Distress Oxide ink.  I kept the card very clean and simple so I could enter the card for AAA card challenge and also for the Color throw down challenge.
