B&W with a pop of color

I feel sort of under the weather today so what would be a better way to combat the feeling is to make a fun and happy card.

Crafting is a way for me to relax so I made this super quick card using stamps that I bought  in Michaels store way back when I visited Las Vegas.

I stamped the cutesy animals in the background, then colored 3 of the images in the set as highlights.

I used Pretty Pink Posh dies to cut my vellum tag behind the mini squares. So quick and easy. Feels much better after creating this card.

Watercolor play

I’m playing this week in Freshly Made Sketches # 200, A Celebration.

An amazing card inspirations in the gallery from different Design Teams of my favorite craft manufacturers, they are playing too!

I used Altenew’s Sketchy Cities America stamp set. I have them for sometime now but haven’t had the chance to use them in my projects. Glad to color them now.

I did two versions, one is by coloring the buildings with my desired colors and the other just a free watercolor play, just randomly putting watercolors one after the other.

Coloring with markers

Hello there!

I had fun coloring these food set with promarkers. Except for the drink which I stamped directly on a cardstock, the pizza and ice cream were colored with of promarkers. I made them colored coordinated so it will look united in the overall card.

I used Paper Smooches Think Fast stamp set. I don’t have their coordinating dies so I fussy cut all the food items :)

One Layer card stamping

Today is a super quick one layer card with minimal coloring too.

The stamp images are from Sarah Hurley while the sentiment is from Technique Tuesday.

I first stamped the outline images, then colored them by stamping another solid stamp using Hero Arts inks.

I added the sentiment and using the corner chomper, I rounded the top corners.

Masculine card

Today is a clean and simple masculine card using Paper Smooches stamps and dies.

I used the Chemistry Bottles dies, die cutting the three test tubes and stamping the smokes in patterned papers using the Great Chemistry stamp set.

I draw an outline around the tubes to emphasize the shapes of the bottles to make it more visible. I also stamped some  circles around using Versamark ink.

Instead of a ribbon I used the Stitched Dies to add the curves. The tag is also from Paper Smooches Tag Stitched Dies.

I’m using the sketch from Paper Smooches July 26-August 1 Designer Drafts challenge.
