Love you Lots 2

I hope everyone has had a great start to their week, I have been busy but all has been good here.  As promised I am back with the last of the Valentines Day cards that I made this year.  This one was for my son.  While I know Valentines Day and Love are not something he likes to talk about with his mom I think he does enjoy getting cards.(secretly of course) 

I used the same stamp set as I did with my daughters card.  I love the animals in this stamps set and I love even more that they can be colored.  This cute little frog was stamped on crumb cake CS with Staz-on ink and water colored using the watercolor pencils and an aqua painter.  The DSP is from the Cupcakes & carousels paper stack.  I chose this paper because it reminded me of the sunshine and it just seemed to fit with this froggy. I tried to make sure I wasn't making it to cute since it was for my son; keeping things simple can be challenging.

I also wanted to let you know that there are some new Sale-a-bration items available starting today through March 31 2017 while supplies last.  With every $50 you spend before S/H you can pick an item from either of the Sale-a-bration catalogs for free.  The link to view the catalogs is on the right hand side of my blog.

Let me know if you have any questions and I thank you for stopping by.  Have a fabulous week.

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
