Once a quarter my uplines team participates in an inchie swap. An inchie is a square that measures 1 3/4 x 1 3/4. We make them that size so that the person receiving them can mount them on a piece of 2 x 2 CS in whatever color they want. If you remember the spring one we did I mounted all of mine on black, it just looks a lot nicer with them all mounted on the same color. This time the theme is summer and we were only allowed to use real red, daffodil delight, pacific point, old olive, and whisper white. I used the smallest heart die in the hearts collections and embossed them with the polka dot embossing folder and one of the flowers from the boho blossoms punch to make strawberries. I punched part of the 3/4" circle punch on a piece of scrap paper and used it for a mask and sponged it with daffodil delight ink for the sun. So what do you think? I can't wait to get all the different squares and make another frame.
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.
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.
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.
