Look what the UPS man brought me today, lol. I love how this card turned out, it's kinda clean and simple. I used the Valentine Defined Stamp set from SU. I colored the stamp with my stampin' write markers and added some dazzling diamonds to the little hearts. I couldn't wait to get this roses that are in the new mini. I have to say I am very impressed with them, they are even better than I excpected and crystal effects works perfect to glue them on your project. The ribbon treatment I used is something I learned from my friend France. The little key charm is also in the new mini, very cute.

I am entering this in 2 challenges

crazy 4 challenges - celebrate something
Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend:)

Your cards are beautiful, Steph! Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. To answer your question about smearing ink with printed images....first let me ask....what are you using to color? If Copics....

Some (few but some) printer inks smear when using Copics. You might want to try heat setting your image before you color it. Feel free to email me if you have other questions or comments.

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
