Monster Birthday Card and Birthday Wishes Card

Hello everyone.

Today I am sharing a couple of cards I did this week.

For the first card I used one of the free Digi stamps from Create a Smile.  This is a brand-new stamp company and she is going to release her first stamp set very shortly.  I was going to try out for the design team didn't get my card up in time.  I used my white gel pen to enhance the monster's little spots.

Suplies used on this card:
Create a Smile free Digistamp
Hero Arts "It's your day" stamp set
Hero Arts Raspberry Jam shadow ink
SSS Stars & Dots stencil (May CKOM)
America Craft Twine (black)
Recollections cardstock (white)
(I purchases theses products at Simons Says Stamp and Michaels)

And for me second card I did some water colouring with my distress markers.  Michaels had a 40% coupon on your entire regular priced purchase so I picked up another pack of the markers.  Their selection for the ink pads hasn't changed in over two years so I'm improvising.  

I used the markers for the back ground and the bunnies along with some shimmer mist from Heidi Swapp and Tattered Angel.  I used the Mama Elephant Femme Frames to cut out the paper.

Supplies used for this card:
Mama Elephant - Honey Bunny (Mama Elephant)
Mama Elephant - Femme Frames (Mama Elephant)
Hero Arts "Hero Hues" in black (SSS)
Hero Arts "It's your day" stamp set (SSS)
Heidi Swapp Shimmer mist in Gold and White (Michaels)
Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist in Almost Black (Michaels)
Pattern paper - MME (Home Sense)

Love is everything - Card

Hi there!

Today I have a card share for you today.
I saw this on YouTube posted by Slipcoaststampers and I got out my pitt artist pens from Faber Castell and I thought I would try it.  It's called Zentangle.  

I used the Mama Elephant Honey Bunny stamp set and coloured them in with my copics.  I used Recollections card stock and the sentiment is from the June CKOM from Simon Says Stamp and stamped it with Hero Arts black ink.

Thanks for stopping by!

See you soon with another card.

Happy Birthday Card

Hello everyone,

I have a card that I made for my mother-in-laws birthday.

I picked up an Art Impressions stamp set from Michaels over the weekend with a coupon and I coloured her in with my distress markers.  I also used the Lawn Fawn Interlocking backdrops.

And since I was on a roll, I decided to colour in the there image that is included in the set.  These ladies are a blast to colour.

Thanks for stopping by.

Lawnscaping Challenge No.84 - Stars & Strips

Hello everyone!

I'm here to share a card I did for the Lawnscaping Challenge Stars & Strips.

I created a tag with the 3 x 4 journaling die and the stars that are in the same set from LF and the scripty "Thanks" die as well.  I die cut the first "Thanks" out of the stripped paper from the "Hello Sunshine" LF 6x6 paper pack.  

Then I cut 3 more out of white card stock.  When I put it together it didn't really show up against the white background so I cut one more out of black card stock and put that one on the bottom and offset it by just a hair so it could be seen.  

I then I punched two holes with my cropodile and used the Coral Lawntrimmings to make the bow.
I didn't want to waste the little cut out stars that were left over so I randomly placed them on the tag.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hole lotta cards!

Hello everyone!

Here is a few cards that I have been working on.  

This one is from the SSS OLCC Watercolour for carmakers and it was one that I didn't get uploaded.

I used the Tim Holtz stencil and distress inks.  I used the Lawn Fawn stamps and the SSS Hello die.  I used water colour paper and red card stock as the card base.

In this next card I used Stampin' Up ink and stamps as well as watercolour paper and a lighter red card stock.

I think this is one of my very favourite cards I've made so far.  I used a shimmer paint from Michaels (the one for $6.99) and dies and stamps from Lawn Fawn.  Again I used watercolour paper and Recollections cards stock for the base.

Here is a card that I used a Mama Elephant stamp set Honey Bunny and I just love it.  I sewed the vellum and card stock to the card base and I used the little embellishments to make my own background.

This is a tag I make from the Tag you're it die set from Lawn Fawn and the Science of Love stamp set and I water coloured the background and I used the Lawn Trimmings in silver.

This is one I did just today and I it's at the top of my list of being one of my favourites  I heat embossed the clouds and water coloured the background with distress markers.  I used the outline heart in the Hello Baby and the exclamation mark from the same set to make the butterfly.  I water coloured the bird and I used Versafine Onyx to stamp the sentiment which is from the "Hole lotta Happy"  from WPlus9.  I used an olive cards stock for the base.

For this last card I used a spellbinders die set that I have and I used a Tim Holtz stencil and peacock feathers distress ink for the background.  I sprayed it with my homemade shimmer mist (I discovered that when I use my shimmer paints, the shimmer settles to the bottom on the water dish so after I pour our the water I can pour the shimmer into a mini spritzer).  I stamped the clouds from one of my Lawn Fawn stamp sets with Stayzon cotton white ink and the grass is from "Dogs in the park" set from LF onto some acetate.  The cute little kitty is Newton's Nook stamp set, "Newton's Anticks"  and the sentiment is from the same set.

Thanks for stopping by!

Lawnscaping Challenge #83

Hello everyone!

I'm here today playing along with the Lawnscaping Challenge #83 and it's all about embossing.

I used Canson 140# watercolour paper and Tim Holtz distress markers that I bought from Michaels.  The distress colours are worn lipstick, dusty concord, crushed olive and spiced marmalade.
I heat embossed the hearts from the new Lawn Fawn "Hello Baby" stamp set and I used Ranger white embossing powder.  I then rounded the rounded the corners with my corner chomper and mounted the piece on to a white card base.  I used the new "Thanks" script dies to die cut the thanks out of the watercolour paper.

Thanks for stopping by!
