Sending you a llama love.

Good morning everyone!

Today I have a very bright card to share with you and it features a couple of images from one of Vera Lane Studio digi sets... isn't that llama adorable?!! 
The images were colored with Copics, the sentiment is from Inky Antics and heat embossed with white powder. The background was created with Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade and Mermaid Lagoon Oxide inks. I also randomly applied Moonstone Glimmer Paste through Rangers Spring Bloom stencil... it's so sparkly IRL but very hard to see in this photo. I used a Simon Says Stamp die for the stitched rectangle, a My Favorite Things die for the pierced rectangle and the Grassy border die is from Lawn Fawn.

  Well, that's it for now... thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog today!

You are my HAPPY!

Hello everyone and happy Friday!

Today's card is another mixed media style of card and it features several stamps from Carabelle Studio!
I created a 'stamping with a stencil' background with Darkroom Door Polka Dot stencil and several of my favorite colors of Distress Oxide inks. The cute little owl, checkered pattern and circles are from Carabelle Studio and the sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps. The owl was stamped with Ranger Archival Ink and watercolored with Distress inks... to finish it up I added some googly eyes :) 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!

Vintage Botanical Cards...

Good morning everyone! 

Today I'm sharing a couple of cards that I created with Tim Holtz Botanical chipboard pieces...

On this card I added Crazing Collage Medium over the flowers, once dry I rubbed some gold acrylic paint into the cracks. The yellow panel was created with Tim Holtz Resist Spray, Simon Says Stamp Grid stencil and Mustard Seed distress ink. The stitched rectangles are also from Simon Says Stamp and to finish it up I added gold and copper sequins. 
On my second card I added a coat of Matte collage medium over the flowers, a little white acrylic paint to the background paper and some gold acrylic paint to the die cut sentiment. I used Avery Elle dies for the postage stamp frame and rectangle, all papers are from MME and I used Walnut Stain & Vintage Photo inks for the distressing. 
Enjoy your day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Just For You

Good morning everyone!

Today starts a new challenge at Back to Basics and Beyond and the theme is... 
Off-The-Edge Stamping!
For my card I decided to use a couple of Vera Lane Studio stamps again :) I love her fun and quirky stamps! The images are colored with Copics and the label sentiment is from Altenew. I created a watercolor wash background with Mowed Lawn and Mermaid Lagoon Oxide inks. Once dry- I randomly stamped a Darkroom Door mesh stamp in Mermaid Lagoon ink and then stamped Carabelle Studio hearts in black ink for my Off-the-edge technique. I used a Pink & Main die for the stitched rounded rectangle, a Lawn Fawn die for the grass and the sequins are from my stash.

That's it for now... thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to pop on over to the main challenge blog to check out the rest of the teams gorgeous creations!

Frozen Fellowship...

Happy Monday everyone!

I wanted to pop in today and share a couple of Christmas cards with you... They feature the adorable Frozen Fellowship stamp from Newton's Nook! The first one is stamped with black licorice ink, colored with Copics and I added a little detailing with a white Posca pen. 
On the second one- I stamped the image onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper in VersaFine black ink and colored it with Zig brush pens, the sentiment was stamped in VersaMark ink and heat embossed with white powder.
I used a Lawn Fawn die for the Zig Zag rectangle and a Sizzix/Tim Holtz die for the double stitched rectangle and there you have it... my first Christmas cards of the year!

Ruff day?

Good morning everyone!

Today starts a new challenge at Back to Basics and Beyond and this time we would like you to create a card or project inspired by one of the photos posted on the blog.
This is the photo I used for my inspiration: I went with the cream, red & teal colors, the tile/diamond patterns and the sofa... 
and my card features an adorable Helz Cuppleditch image from Stampavie. It's stamped in Ranger Archival Ink, I used a combination of  Zig Brush Markers and Distress Inks to watercolor it and the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp. I stenciled Fired Brick Distress Oxide ink through Simon Says Stamp Grid stencil for the red panel and I sponged Peacock Feather Oxide ink on the large panel. The stitched rectangles were cut with Avery Elle dies and I used Elizabeth Crafts dies for the flowers, the sequins are from my stash.

 I hope you can join us and don't forget to pop on over to the main challenge blog to check out the rest of the teams beautiful creations!

leave a little sparkle...

Good morning everyone! 

Today I have a VERY bright and fun card to share with you... it features an adorable image from Vera Lane Studio
She's colored with Copics and I used a couple of Tim Holtz stickers for the sentiment. For the background- I sponged a piece of Mixed Media paper with Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink, then I stenciled Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide ink through Simon Says Stamp Grid stencil. For the glittery flowers- I mixed Carved Pumpkin Distress ink with Moonstone Glimmer Paste and applied it through Rangers Spring Bloom stencil... I LOVE how the flowers turned out! :) The stitched rectangle was cut with an Avery Elle die and I used a My Favorite Things die for the stitched sun.

That's it for now... thanks so much for stopping by!
