Watercolor-Vivid Vases

I hope everyone is enjoying their Monday, I know I am since it is spring break which means no work for me.  Yay! This is a card I designed a couple of weeks ago for a shoe box swap.  Colors used are Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke, Wisteria Wonder, and water color paper.  The background is embossed with the decorative dots embossing folder from the sale-a-bration catalog.  If you didn't get a chance to get this folder not to worry it will be available in the 2014-2015 catalog this summer.  I stamped the image on water color paper with black staz-on and colored it using an aqua painter and my ink pads.  I colored on of the vases in wisteria wonder on a piece of scrap paper and cut it out and popped it up.  I added a little dazzling diamonds to the purple vase and purple flowers.  The ribbon is crumb cake seam binding.  The image was cut out using one of the circle framelits.

Well that's it for today.  Now I'm off to make some cookies and then more stamping, so make sure to stop by tomorrow.

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.
