Papillon Potpourri

Hello Stampers,

I am still having a hard time getting good photos.  My camera is still in the shop getting fixed so I am stuck taking pictures with my phone.  Anyways this is a card I made last night using the sketch at Stampin Queens sketch challenge.  The paper is the background is the new Natural Composition Specialty paper.  The background on the paper was just glossy which I water colored with the new in colors.  I got this idea from Patty Bennett blog.  Love how this turned out.  The stamp set used is called Papillon Potpourri, which I punched out using the new butterfly punch.  I added some of the new 3/8" stitched satin ribbon in Raspberry Ripple and a large pearl.  Love this ribbon it is soooo soft and very nice to work with.
CS used is Raspberry Ripple, Crumb cake, whisper white.  Inks used are Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit.  I added some of the DSP and ribbon to the inside to finish it off.  I didn't but a greeting on this card yet because I'm not sure what I'm going to use it for.

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
