Yea, No school today!!!!  I have lots of cleaning and laundry to do today but I plan to fit in some stamping time as well. 

This is a card I made for the make and take at the stamp sale we had on Saturday.  This sweet little bunny is from the Everybunny stamp set.  I water colored her with my ink pads and a water tank brush.  This is a simple card but soooo cute.  Colors used are Melon Mambo, Pretty in pink, basic gray, soft suede, island indigo, and lucky limeade.  CS used is Melon Mambo, Island Indigo, and water color paper.  The DSP is from Tea for Two in the spring catalog.
Here is a close up of the image.  Super fun and super easy to do.  Water coloring just takes a little practice and you'll be an expert in no time.  The most important tip I can give you is to make sure you don't get the paper to wet so the colors wont run and let it dry in between layers.  Give it a try I know you'll love it.

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
