Blue Beauty

 Hello Friends!  

Every now and again I like to look through images, die cuts, card bases etc. that are in the 'did not use' pile.  This card base has been in my stash for at least a couple of years.  It was time to use it! 


Watercolor paper had been, well, watercolored and the green watercolored leaves were die cut with a Simon Says Stamp Die, Outline Clustered Leaves; I kept the negative space leaf shapes.  Then the blue piece was die cut with the same die.  I only used a portion of that background piece.  The white outline was inset into the blue background and then glued down to the card base.  The green pieces were then inset into the outline leaves.  

I finally decided that all it needed was a big flower to finish the card, so I stamped and colored with Copics one of my favorites from SnSS, True Beauty.  I fussy cut it out, added some scrap cs behind it to pop it up just a bit, adhered it and then stamped the sentiment with My new favorite sentiment ink, Versafine Claire Nocturne Ink.  Scripture sentiment is from Stamp Simply.  


I added a few SSS Moonshine sequins to finish the card.

Pot Full of Daisies

 Hello !

I picked up this stamp set from Top Flight Stamps.  It is a Jane's Doodles set from Creative Expressions.  


This coffee pot won me over!  I am not a coffee drinker but I think this is just adorable and it reminds me of the chrome one my mom had when I was a kid.  

The image was colored with Copics and fussy cut out.  My background panel was stamped with an IO Stamps Cover A Card Background Stamp, Leaf Ledger; it is stamped in Maple Yellow Ink from Altenew. 

The frame is made with MFT's Stitched Rectangle Scalloped Edge Dies.  I gave the coffee pot a bit of dimension by adding some scrap cs to the back of it.  

The sentiment is from Sweet n Sassy Stamps, Choose Faith. A few yellow sequins were added for sparkle. 


Thanks for stopping by!

I used the sketch at MFT~

Mom's Butterfly

 Hello Friends! 

Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms out there! 


I started with the Simon Says Stamp Delicate Flowers Stamp Set and stamped and colored the flower and extra leaves with Copics.  The butterfly is from Sweet n Sassy Stamps.  After coloring, all images were fussy cut out.  


I created a window in the white panel with a retired PTI Die.  The pink background panel was heat embossed with the SnSS Typewriter Text Background Stamp and clear embossing powder. I determined the placement of my leaves and flowers, then determined the placement of my sentiment.  The sentiment was stamped in my MISTI with Versafine Claire ink.  

The white panel was popped up and the foliage was adhered to the card.  A few SSS Moonshine sequins finish the card.

Classic Colors

 Hello, Hello!

A friend of mine requested sympathy cards, so I pulled out some oldies but goodies.  


 The background was embossed with a Tim Holtz 3D embossing folder that I had inked up with Altenew Cloudy Sky Ink.  I then spritzed it with water to get the speckled look.  

Once the panel was dry, I used a Delicata Gold Glitz Pigment Ink and lightly passed it over the raised areas of the embossing.  I cut the panel to size and backed it with some yellow cs.  

The flower was all die cut from white cs using Altenew's Peony Dream 3D Die Set.  I used some distress ink in Scattered Straw and Fossilized Amber to add a bit of color to the flower.  Everything was assembled including a small sentiment strip.  Last but not least, some SSS Moonshine Sequins were added.
