Secret Garden

Wow Thursday already!  This is a card I was going to make for Convention but never got a round to making.  And this probably would have been the easiest of all of them to mass produce. lol.  Color used are Marina Mist, Real Red, and Whisper white, and I believe the stem of the flowers was Old Olive. 

On the Whisper White CS I crumpled up a piece of tissue paper and glued it on the CS.  When it was dry I stamped the flowers and greeting on the tissue paper.  I tried stamping it on the tissue paper before I crumpled it but I wasn't patient enough to let it dry so when I crumpled it all the ink smeared everywhere.  Stamping it after you glue it on CS is easier anyways that way you know how much space you have.  The blue flower I stamped on a scrap piece of paper and water colored it with the marina mist ink pad and cut it out using the secret garden framelits. 
I was playing with the Washi Tape I got at convention and thought it added a cute touch to this card.  This is from the Christmas Washi Tape so as you can see it can be used for anything not just Christmas.  I can see a very cute valentines card with this Washi Tape.

Well that's it for today, feel free to leave a comment I would love to hear what you think.  Stop by tomorrow for more.

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
