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.

Oh Happy Day

Happy Saturday!  Hope everyone is taking some time to stamp today.  This was a simple and quick card, but I think it is very nice for a boy's birthday.  Colors used for this card are Pacific Point, Summer starfruit, and whisper white.  For the background I stamped with the background stamp from the Open Sea stamp set in summer starfruit.  The Oh Happy Day comes from the Starburst saying in the occasions spring catalog.  I added a few candy dots to the bottom corner to finish it off. 

Well that's it for this card.  Thanks for stopping by!

Good as Gold

Every month my upline has a challenge for us.  This time it was to make a full size card using the Good as Gold kit.  You can get the good as gold kit for free with a $50 purchase now thru March 31. 

My card base is Bermuda Bay followed by a layer of basic black and crisp cantaloupe.   The DSP is the front of the card that comes in the kit.  I stamped the big flower from Peaceful Petals on vellum CS and embossed with gold embossing powder and colored the back of the flower with Bermuda bay.  I used the gold foil paper that comes in the kit and stamped the leaf image image with versa mark and embossed with the gold.  all the strings came with the kit also.  Great kit for free, can't beat that. 

That's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by.
