Abstract Impressions

Hello, and happy Friday! I can't believe how fast the week has gone! Today, I am sharing a fun card using the Abstract Impressions Bundle.  This is one of the projects stampers made at my Make and Take Class on Wednesday night.
I just love these colors together: Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green.  And because this is an "abstract" stamp set- it is super easy to create this floral scene because you do not have to worry about lining up the images.


To softened up the background, we also stamped "splotches" with the Artisan Textures stamp set.


My sister recently had knee surgery, so this will be the perfect card to send to her. :)

Trick or Tweet sneak peek

Hello, crafty friends. Today, I have a fun card to share whit you. It's my first Halloween card of the season using the Trick or Tweet stamp set that will be available on September 1st, from the Holiday Catalog.
Isn't he the cutest? Super fun and easy to color- and don't you like his green eyes and toe nails? tee-hee.  I used Basic Black (new in the Holiday Catalog!), Smoky Slate, Granny Apple Green, and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends.


The Buffalo Check background stamp set is another new stamp set you will find in the Holiday Catalog. It's the new hip and trendy look.  The plaid is the prefect size for card making. It's not too big or too small.  I chose to ink it up with Granny Apple Green ink.



I don't have a picture of the inside of the card, but it says "batty for you" which is another sentiment in this adorable stamp set. :D  Do you need a copy of the new Holiday Catalog? Let me know and I will send you one. :)

Sunday Stamps! #185

Happy Sunday, crafty friends! Today starts a new challenge at Sunday Stamps!. This week we are working with a  color challenge and here's what I made using the Beautiful Promenade Bundle found on page 107 of the annual catalog.
I had planned to use the Accented Blooms stamp set but as I sat down to actually create this weeks challenge card, I saw the Beautiful Promenade stamp set and decided it was time to ink it up.  I honestly have tell you that what I love about challenges is that it forces you to "go outside the box" when you are working with a stamp set.  Having said that, I'm 100% sure I would not have put these colors together with this set - yet I think it worked pretty darn well. :D

The name of the stamp set says it all. Aren't those flowers gorgeous? There are many different possibilities for coloring and stamping the flowers. This is a Two Step stamp set, but you wouldn't have add the second layer to the flower to achieve a beautiful flower.  I did use my Stamparatus to create these flowers and have a quick video showing you what I did below.





Here's this weeks color challenge at Sunday Stamps!
To play along, create a project using a minimum of 3 colors from the sketch above and submit your creation to the challenge blog by Friday, August 24, 2018.

Watercolor Blended Seasons

Hello, and happy Friday! It's going to be a warm weekend here, how about you?  Today, I am sharing another Blended Seasons card.  As I stated before, you will have nothing but success with the flower image- no matter how you decide to stamp and color it.
For today's card, I decided to embossed the flowers using Silver Embossing Powder, and then water color it with my Aqua Painter and ink refills.

 Watercoloring is so much easier if you emboss your image first.  And besides, it looks beautiful embossed! :D   Ink colors are: Blackberry Bliss, Grapefruit Grove and Granny Apple Green.

The sentiment from the Springtime Strolls Hostess stamp set fits perfectly in the Stitched Seasons Framelits not to mention how well the cute little butterflies work too.

Time is running out if you want to receive a FREE Card Class Kit from me for the Blended Seasons Bundle!  Details are HERE
