Masking and watercolor

Happy Sunday!

I did some more watercoloring this time using My Favorite Things stamps. I cut a rectangular piece of watercolor paper and did some stamping using the fence then masked it to stamped the wooden base. I then stamped the pot of flowers then watercolor them all.

I had a gnome that I already colored in the past and used it this time to complete my little garden scene.

I then added some flower gems from Hero Arts and a purple washi for my side banner.

My card sketch inspiration is from My Favorite Things, Wednesday Sketch Challenge #295.

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.

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.

Be Amazing

Hello there!

Wow! Its been forever since I last shared a card project here.

I was  on vacation for about three weeks and got occupied with so many other things before that so I was missing in action for quite some time.

Anyway, today I’m sharing this ombre stamped butterflies at Sarah Hurley365 blog. You can visit me there too and say hello 🙂

I used three butterfly types  and ombre inks for stamping.

Coloring with Distress Markers

I was able to use  my new Distress Markers last night along with my new Succulent stamps from Hero Arts. I got them from my recent craft haul and so glad to use them this weekend.

I did some test watercoloring to see how the markers works, I think I need a little bit more practice but generally I love them!

I stamped the succulent and pot with Versamark then gold embossed them. I love the raised texture that embossing gives to the images.

Oh and I also used my new Happy Birthday stamp set from  Sweet Stamp Shop.

I’ll be here

I had the chance to play with my stamp win from Mama Elephant. I received this stamp for sometime now and I’m so glad to use it this time.

I colored the little girl image with promarker and fussy cut her and the teeny tiny turtle as well. I used pattern papers from Lawn Fawn. Did you noticed lately I’ve been putting sequins in every card I make?  I think that’s my latest addition in card making. I so love the sequins I got from Pretty Pink Posh 🙂

Deck the halls challenge

Another quick post. There’s the ”Deck the hall” challenge at Hero Arts blog and its only few hours left for the deadline.

I really wanted to take part so I did these two snowmen quickly using Hero Arts Frosty Wishes and its coordinating Frame cuts die Snowman.

I stamped the main details of the snowman and added some scrap fabric for the scarf and hat. A small piece of orange felt for the nose. I also cut one more piece of felt for the back to cover the twine that I put on top. With that twine, I can hang them now in the Christmas tree.

For more fun, I added googly eyes instead of just the plain dot.


That’s it! Now I have a snowman ornament that I can add in my tree.

Holiday card with non-holiday stamp set

Hello everyone!

So excited to share a Christmas card today using non-holiday stamp set 🙂 A great way to stretch your stamps isn’t it?

I used the fox from the Small Things stamps set, not a Christmas theme set but rather a general hello, everyday kind of stamp set. I  used traditional red and green inks to show the Christmas colors and also added some buttons and leaves to represent a Christmas holly.

I also added a Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen to the fox for some shine.

For the background, I created my own by stamping the circle with white ink, it looks like snow using the white ink pad 🙂

I also add texture in the green tag paper by stamping the Woodgrain background stamp.
