Bells & Boughs

Good Evening,

Wow this was a fun card to make.  Of course I enjoyed it cause I got to watercolor, he he!  I used the sketch at Paper Craft Crew for this card.  It was a bit of a challenge to get the cherry cobbler piece the right size and the sentiment in just the right place so that the image wouldn't cover it up, but I love the result.  The DSP is from the Candlelight Christmas in the Holiday catalog.  The stamp is from the bells & boughs stamp set, stamped on  watercolor paper with stazon ink.  I water colored with a water tank brush and my ink pads.  Colors used are more mustard, cherry cobbler, and Old Olive.  I added some cherry cobber dazzling details to the berries and silver sparkle dazzling details on a few spots on the bells.
Here is a view of the inside of the card.  I stamped another of the images from the stamp set on the inside and water colored it.  Well that's it for tonight thanks for stopping by:))

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
