country morning

This is a card I made using the country morning stamp set. I used my watercolor pencils to color this. I tried really hard to make it look like there was water in the jar but I'm not sure I know how to do this. I am happy with how it turned out, though. I used the mojo monday sketch for this card. I'm not sure if you can tell but I dry embossed the background paper and then lightly colored it with my stampin pastels. I hope you like it. Thanks for stoppin by:)

Mr. Turkey

Good Evening!!! Well this is Mr. Turkey. Isn't he just adorable. I made him about a week ago to decorate at work. I used the big scallop circle die with my big shot and the medium size oval from the oval die. I aslo used the 1 3/4 circle punch for the face, and the 5 petal flower punch for the feet and beak. I sponged around all the pieces and distessed the feathers. What do you think. I hope you are having a good weekend. Thanks for stoppin by.

water color apples




Good evening, This is a joy fold card I made using the Give Thanks SU stamp set. This is a retired stamp set and so is the DS paper I used. I stamped the image on watercolor paper and colored it with my watercolor pencils. This card was so much fun to make. I love images I can color. The pictures below show you how the card opens. I added the leafs at the top of the card to hold it shut. What do you think? I hope you like it. Have a good weekend:)

Pines set and colored the stamp with my stampin' write markers. I also sponged


around the edges of the letters with real red ink. This was a fun project to make.

Season's Greetings



Happy Novemeber! I hope everyone got a chance to sleep in after a night of trick-or-treating. Well I had this stamp set starring me in the face for a couple of weeks, but I was so busy trying to get halloween stuff done that I didn't have time to use it. So yesterday I just couldn't take it any longer and had to get it out and give it a try. The stamp set is called snow swirled. I used my stampin' write markers to color the stamp and stamped it on shimmery white paper. Oh and the snowflakes on the tree I painted on the stamp with the platinum shimmer paint. (which I now need to order more of since I dumped it all over my table and my pants.) In the center of the snowflakes I added a silver bead (page 180 IBC) I used crystal effects to adhere them. I also use the silver beads on the sentiment but I colored them red with my stampin' write markers. I embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder. My favorite part was the ribbon. I used the Organza Ribbon but I colored the center strip with my stampin' write marker. I got this idea from Carole Anne's blog. Oh yeah I also stamped snowflakes on BG paper with versamark. Well I hope you like it. Thanks for stoppin by. Have a good day:)
