Just sitting here

Hello! This My Favorite Things sketch also caught my eye today.


Used the Polar Bear Pals stamps to create this. Stamped in versafine, heat embossed then color with Copics.  Sentiment is also heat embossed using detail fine white embossing powder. The grosgrain ribbon is colored with the same blue Copic marker that I used in his scarf.

Also entering this into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of thinking of you.

Thanks for stopping in.



Snowflake shaker

Hello. Playing in the sketch challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches today.


I created the back ground using alcohol inks on Yupo paper. Once dried, I stamped the snowflake medley (MFT) using unicorn white ink from Hero Arts. Christmas sentiment is from Hero Arts. The snowflake medley stamp is from the Santa's elves set from MFT.

I also cut out a snowflake from clear acetate and colored it using the same alcohol ink. Added a small white one on top and then embellished with a clear rhinestone. Silver glitter washi paper from DCWV used in the back.

Thanks for stopping by!

Fall thank you

Hello!

It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week is Designers Choice and we are challenged by Patti to create a "count your blessings" card. So any thank you, thanks, blessing, etc. will work.


I used the Oak leaf stamp and stamped it ink from Hero Arts in fall colors. Used my Scan N Cut to cut them out and fanned the into a little bouquet. The "Thank you" are dies from Sizzix. I used Stick It! adhesive on the darker brown cardstock before running it through my die cut machine. This stuff works so very well when adding die cuts onto cards. Love it.

Added a cute jute bow onto the leaf bouquet to finish off the card.

So, what are you waiting for?!

Watercolor thank you

Hello. Playing in the watercolor challenge over at Less is More.


Watercolor background is created using Ken Oliver's color bursts. The big thank you sentiment is from Concord & 9th. I stamped it in Versafine ink then heat embossed it in clear to give it some shine.

Layered it in black so that it would stand out and then resisted adding any embellishments. I wanted the colors to be the focal point.

Thanks for stopping by!

Anything goes challenge - Happy Birthday treat box









It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we were challenged with the popular Anything Goes.


I picked up this box die at Hobby Lobby and cut it out twice. Before assembling it, I randomly stamped the mum (10310-H, Mum Solid) in red raspberry in from Hero Arts. Added thee birthday sentiment in the center and then folded up the box. I used a Copic marker that was close in color to the ink and colored some white satin ribbon. Once dried, I used the Bow Easy to create the bow. Added some twine that matched in the back, as well. I'm filling this with some M&M's, I think to give away to a friend.

So, what are you waiting for?!

Because life's better buzzed

Hello! Playing in this weeks Freshly Made Sketch. Also adding this into the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

I colored the coffee word die using a Copic marker. I doubled up on the coffee cup to pop it up and give it some dimension. Plaid designer paper, I believe is from Echo Park's Carta Bella line.

ETA: I forgot to enter this into the Wednesday SSS challenge of Pop it up.

Have a great weekend!

Inspiration Palette - Thinking of you



It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we were challenged to create something using the following inspiration palette.


I smooched some distress oxide and regular distress inks onto a acrylic block then smashed them onto a piece of  watercolor paper. After I heat set it, I stamped the open leaf (10203-D, Leaf Cluster Outline) randomly across it and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. It's subtle but so cool in real life. I used brown as the card base.
