Christmas Choir Girl part 2

Happy Monday!  It's a very happy Monday since I didn't have to work today, yea!!!!!!  Instead I cleaned house and stamped, ahh the perfect day.  This card uses the same image as the one from yesterday except this time I water colored her with distress ink.  Water coloring might just be my absolute favorite thing to do.  I love to color with my copic markers just as much but theres something about dipping a paint brush in the ink and moving it around that just makes me so happy. 
Here is a close up of the image.  It's hard to see in the photo but there is a little yellow glow around the image. I used the sketch over at Mojo Monday for my card and I am also going to enter this in the Monthly Challenge at Bunny Zoe's Crafts, which is to use a winter theme.  I love the little snowflake on the sentiment instead of a flower, perfect for Christmas. 
Here is a glimpse of the inside of the card.  This card is going to a very sweet lady, I hope she likes it. 
Here are the colors used on the image:
Skin: Tattered rose, tea dye, aged mahogany
Hair:  antique linen, gathered twigs, vintage photo, walnut stain
Robe: pumice stone, barn door
Leafs:  shabby shutter, pine needles
Cat:  black soot, aged mahogany, barn door, fired brick marker, bell- wild honey
Background: wild honey, pumice stone

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!

Pleasant Poppies

These are a couple of Sympathy cards I made this week for 2 different friends.  I used the same set Pleasant Poppies and water colored one with Primrose Petals and the other with Raspberry ripple.  Love the new In-colors from Stampin Up!  I used 2 different framelits from the Apothecary Accents set.  On the bottom of the top card I used one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits (love them) and the other one I used one of the Adorning Accents Edgelits.  The ribbon is just some of the Taffeta Ribbon in very vanilla which I sponged with the matching in-colors to get the color I wanted.  The sentiment is done using a stamp from the Petite Pairs Stamp set and punched out with the new Ticket Duo Punch. The very vanilla layer is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Folder.  Well thats it for me tonight.  Thanks for stopping by.   Feel free to leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think.
