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.

Happy Sunday!

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.

Spreadin’ a little love

Hi there!

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.

My sketch inspiration is from Sketch Saturday Week # 369.

Thanks

Happy Friday!

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.

Moo-tiful birthday

Hi there!

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.

My background is random pattern papers from Lawn Fawn.
