Coloring with distress markers

Hello!

For this card, I used some cute house stamps from Paper Smooches. I colored them with distress markers and added some water to get this watercolor wash. I then added some frosted lace stickles to mimic some snowy scene for the holidays.

I placed the houses in a blue die cut tag with red ribbon strips behind. My sentiment is from Ali Edwards, always love the fonts on this stamp set.

I also added some sequins for more holiday sparkles.

I used a card sketch from The Paper Players: PP318.

Washi and coloring

Hello!

I’m playing with Paper Smooches stamps called Needle Little Love.

I love sewing and this stamp set just called my name when I saw it 🙂 I colored the sewing machine and the heart with promarkers. To add more fun, I added a small piece of folded fabric and placed it closed to the needle part, like someone’s sewing 🙂

I also added some washi tape on both sides of the stamped frame.

I used a sketch from Sketch N Scrap, Card sketch # 82.

Thankful

Hello

It seems like the weather is changing already from summer to a more friendlier temperature. I can tell as its also around this time that I get a cold 😦 Not really a cool thing but that will not keep me do another card today.

I used a card sketch from Pals Paper Arts, Sketch # 318.

My main image, farmer is from Paper Smooches. I colored him with promarker following some autumn colors. I used another stamp set to stamp the autumn leaves in the bigger panel and Thankful sentiment just to complement the season.

I also stamped the card base background with woodgrain background stamp from Hero Arts.

Mist and more coloring

Hiya!

I did some mist and spritzing the other day and yesterday’s card and I continue to use that in today’s card share.

I used another mist background using Mr Huey’s Jubillee mini mist and love how that small circle dot mist mimics the circles in my die cut tag shape.

I’m using Paper Smooches stamps, firstly  the main image and the pie and strawberry. I colored the images with promarker and copic markers for the skin color. Since the strawberry is a silhouette only, I stamped that only with red ink. I don’t seem to have a small cupcake stamp to let the guy hold as birthday present so I used the pie and top that with strawberry as alternative 🙂 That should do right? 🙂

One layer card stamping

Happy Saturday!

A super quick stamping with only clear shimmer from Wink of Stella Glitter pen and Pretty Pink Posh sequins in today’s card.

I have this hot air balloon with hearts on it that I won sometime ago. I used this stamps in a kid’s card drive before and I think it just gives a warm-thought-feel to someone you’ll be giving this card to from across the miles.

I did two more stamping here using Hero Arts ombre inks, and this one color stamp too.

Shine Bright

Hiya!

Just checking in quickly to share my take in Cupcake Inspirations Challenge # 371, Shine Bright.

I used a diamond diecut from Ellen Hutson to represent the bright theme. I also used a perfume packaging that has this cool shiny finish to diecut the diamond. I think that both reflects the theme eh? I also added a vellum behind the diecut to show some see-through feel in its sparkle 🙂

For my cupcake I colored it using watercolor. Then I added a striped vellum on the sides and some sequins for some more shine & brightness.

My card sketch inspiration is from CAS on Sunday: Challenge # 89.

Happy Birthday

I found this card sketch at Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog, Sip and Share.  And knowing me being a coffee drinker and card sketch lover must case the sketch.

I have this polka dot printed vellum and washi tapes on my stash so why not make use of them this time.

My stamp is from Simon Says Stamp while the sentiment is from Paper Smooches. I colored the goat with promarkers and die cut the same with its coordinating die. For the strings, I added an embroidery thread behind the goat, great to add texture, also some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Super card

Hi there!

It’s another card today using stamps from Paper Smooches.

I stamped the building silhouette in three different ink pads and arranged them behind to create a background scene. I also added the car silhouette too to put in the front.

For my superhero I colored him with promarker.

Birthday wishes

Hello!

I’m joining in this week’s card sketch at Match the Sketch # 136. Just perfect to use some of my patterned papers.

I used the panda stamp from Mama Elephant while the sentiment is from Paper Smooches. I added some sequins too to add some texture and pop of gold and magenta colors. A quick and easy birthday card 🙂

Clean and simple card

Just  checking in quickly to share a clean and simple card using Paper Smooches Afresco stamp set.

I stamped the barbeque skewers and the ants along with the salt shaker and ketchup, coloring them all using promarkers. I also die cut them using their coordinating dies that I later layered a bit. Some additional pepper, mushrooms and shrimp were also scattered around the ants for some fun.

I added the oval shape using a die, at closer look you can see the detail stitch from the die I used to emboss the shape. I then added a stitched line along the ovals for some details.

I’m entering this card to Paper Smooches July Challenge-Summer. In my home country, summer is the time for barbeque and grilling under the sun 🙂 so this is my take on this month’s challenge.
