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.

Doing some do-it-yourself project using stamps.
I’m sharing how I did this watercolor framed project that you can put in your wall or as table decor.
You can visit Sarah Hurley 365 blog to see the process how I did this home decor or you can also go directly here.
This week I’m taking part in Paper Smooches, Anything Goes Challenge, July 19-26 (wk3).
I used the Crystal Clear stamp set and die cut the bottle using the Crystal Clear 2 dies. The purple beads are very inexpensive ones that I bought before in our local craft store.
Love those mini beads

Checking in quickly to share my watercolored butterflies using Wplus9 Flora & Fauna 2 stamp set. The colors were inspired from Dawn, so love her watercolor techniques.
I stamped the butterflies with Antique Linen distress ink, then played with the colors in my watercolor palette.
For my kraft card base, I embossed them with an embossing folder. My sentiment is made from thick letters from my previous stash.

Checking in quickly to share this watercolor card project that I colored previously. I gold embossed the succulents and colored them with my distress markers. Loving this medium :)
I added a die cut heart in between the two succulents to connect them in a way.
I used Hero Arts Stamp your Own Succulents and sentiment from Mama Elephant Everyday Greetings.

I had great fun doing this mini book pages using papers and all other embellishments and stamps from Sarah Hurley. I’m sharing how I did the pages in Sarah Hurley blog.
You can go direct to the blog here. I hope you can get inspirations on this project too.
I still have a lot of crafty supplies that I haven’t had the chance to play with so this time is a good change to use some of them. I used Paper Smooches Fancy Frames Icons dies for my main shapes.
For the stamped flowers, I used the small icons from Paper Smooches Recipe for Success stamp set. I love using tiny stamps to create patterns such as these :) For some texture, I added twine from Lawn Fawn and a strip of washi tape.

I was looking at new sketches in my favorite challenge blogs and was challenged to work this one from Sketch N Scrap.
I don’t have pattern papers with ray designs so I made the rays using different colors in watercolor. For the circle at the middle, I white embossed the doily to mimic the circle shape. I have that stamp from way back when so its nice to use it this time around.
The cow stamp is from Simon Says Stamp, Party Animal set.
This is the card sketch inspiration from Sketch N Scratch, Sketch # 53.
A closer look at the embossed doily at the background.

I had some coloring made using alcohol markers like promarker and copic. I used the stamps from Simon Says Stamp Party Animal set. After coloring I added some white dots and lines in my images. I also added clear Wink of Stella for some shine :)
My background is random pattern papers from Lawn Fawn.
