A touch of water coloring.

Today I used the Zig Clean Color Real brush markers to do a bit of water coloring on my card. I am enjoying these markers because they are super easy to use and the colors are so vibrant.
I stamped my image in Memento Ink first so it wouldn't smear when I colored it in! My flower and sentiment is from WPlus 9 Doddle Bugs stamp set. 

I hope you will give water coloring a try on your next project!

Happy Stamping!

Thank You Card

Hi Everyone! I have a clean and simple card for you today using a few pieces of pattern paper.
I started by cutting two strips of pattern 
paper and inking the edges with some distress inks to give a bit of a vintage look. 
I then stamped my cup and saucer and die cut them out and did a bit of paper piecing on my tea cup. I really love how it brought it to life! I popped the tea cup up on a piece of doily that had also been inked. I wanted it to look like it was sitting on a table cloth.
I colored the inside of the tea cup with copics and added a touch of glitter to it. I also inked the entire card and edges and then stamped my sentiment with the same distress ink tea dye. 

I really love the vintage feel and the simplicity of this card. Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:

Ink - Tim Holtz Distress Ink and Stampin' Up!
Stamps- Hero Arts and Lawn Fawn
Dies- Lawn Fawn
Paper- DCWV

Miss You Fish Tank Card

Today I made the cutest "Missing You" card with the Lawn Fawn "Fintastic Friends" stamp set and coordinating dies. 

I started off by stamping the tank image on the stitched banner and coloring it in with copics. I then stamped the fish and the plant and also colored those with copics. I used the dies to cut these two images out to give a little more dimension to my card. 
I stamped my sentiment from the Paper Smooches "Scripty Sayings" and adhered it to the stitched rectangles that are layered on my card front. 

To add a little more sparkle I used the Wink of Stella glitter pen, a bit of glossy accents on the bubbles and of course some Pretty Pink Posh sequins! I think this card is simple but so cute.

Thanks for dropping in today and Happy Stamping!

Supplies:

Copics
Ink- Memento, Hero Arts

Dies- Lwan Fawn, Pretty Pink Posh

Thank you card - using Fresh Cut Wreaths-WPlus9

Hey everyone! Today I made a Thank you card with one of my favorite WPlus9 stamp sets "Fresh Cut Wreaths". I love that this stamp set has different wreaths and flowers to layer. You can stamp all the same color or mix them up. I die cut my pattern paper and my white panel using the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle dies.

For my flowers I decided to use Simon Says Stamp coral reef ink to coordinate with my pattern paper. 
I stamped my sentiment on a banner from WPlus9 "Basic Banners" stamp set and used the die from the set to cut it out. This banner fits perfect across the wreath! 

For my final touch I added a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins. Who doesn't love a little sparkle, right! 

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!

Masculine Card / Loads of Love

 
Today I have an adorable card for that special man in your life! Masculine cards are sometimes hard to dream up but this cute truck from Hero Arts made the cut! 

I stamped the truck with memento ink and then masked it off so I could ink my background piece. I used distress inks to make a blue sky and then cut my green card stock to look like a grassy hill. 
The one big heart in the back of the truck made me want to add more hearts, so I die cute a few more
out of different patterned papers and added them to the background. Some are inlaid and some are
popped up. To finish the card of I stamped the Loads of Love for sentiment and die cut the word YOU from the Avery Elle die. I love how this card turned out.

I hope you have a great day and have been inspired to make some masculine cards. Happy Stamping.

Hugs :)
