Stamping 411


T.G.I.F.!!! Well I am soooo glad it's the weekend, how about you? I made this card for the stamping 411 sketch challenge. I have to try to keep up with my friend France and she has been doing these stamping 411 challenges, so I thought I would give it a try. I Love this card. I got to play with a lot of new stuff thats not available until May 1st. This cute little fairy image was so much fun to color. The BG paper is the new Presto Patterns Specialty paper. I used the new smooch spritz to color it. I just sprayed several of the different colors and blended with a sponge dauber. I then added some regal rose ink in a few spots. It turned out very nice with lots of shimmer to it. I got the idea for this from a gal named Sandi. here is a link to her instructions. I sewed around my image to finish it off. The sentiment is from the Tiny Tags Stamp set in the occasion mini catalog. Here is a close up of the fairy. Thanks for stoppin by. TTFN!!:)

Easter

This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year.  This is so fun.  The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch.  I made the grass using the new fringe scissors.  The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Flowering Fields

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!  
Today's card uses another stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog.  It's called flowering fields on page 12.  You can have this beautiful stamp set for free with a qualifying order.  I stamped some of the flowers with versa mark and embossed with white embossing powder.  The other ones were stamped in blackberry bliss.  What do you think of that ribbon?  The pool party glitter ribbon is in the Occasions catalog and it is AMAZING.  Most glitter ribbons can be difficult to work with but not this one.  It is so easy to work with and ties beautifully.  The sentiment is from the "First Sight" stamp set in the Occasions catalog.
Well that's about it for today.  I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend and enjoying the Super Bowl today.  
Happy Stamping!

Avant Garden

Hello stampers,

I'm back with some more coloring.  This is another card from my Challenge class last month.  I used the water color pencils on this card however I did not use any water.  I just simply used them like you would a colored pencil.  I love how this turned out. 
Here is a close up of the flower....
I used the gray pencil and the white pencil on the flowers and a little bit of green on the stem.  This stamp set is called Avant Garden and can be yours for free with a $50 order before tax and shipping.  This offer is only good until March 31 and only while supplies last so don't wait if there is something you had your eyes on.  You can check out all of the free sets by clicking on the links for Sale-a-bration on the right hand side of my blog.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by
