Just popping in quickly to share my take in my favorite card challenges. I used the nautical stamp set from Sweet Stamp Stamp and colored it with watercolor.
For the red strip, I stamped it using Mama Elephant Basic Border set. I had a mistake in stamping another diagonal strip above the red so I used a yellow patterned paper instead to save the card base.
I added some sequins to add some texture and dimension. I also added some shine in the banner using Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.
I’m entering this card to CASology Week 152, Nautical challenge.
My sketch is from Sketch Saturday Week #367.
And color inspiration from Color Throwdown #348.
That’s it for today. Have a great week ahead!
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.

Checking in quickly to share these mini (3 x 3 in) cards. I used the Sweet Stamp Shop stamps that I have in my stash for a while. So glad to use them today.
I stamped the images and fussy cut each one of them. I then added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for some glam.
I also stamped the envelope with the same stamps I used in the cards.
Excited to play at CASology: Week 135 – Mini.
I’m entering this card too in Less is More Challenge- Week 213, This Makes me Happy. Small, cute and whimsical stamps make me happy 🙂
And also to Simon Says Stamp, Simon Monday Challenge – No Rules.
I had the chance to play with some of my recently purchased craft supplies during the black Friday sale 🙂
I used Sweet Stamp Shop Too Hip stamp which has this cute Hippo 🙂 I colored him with promarker then fussy cut him and the hat. The frame is from a die company Lil’ Inker Designs that I’ve been eyeing for sometime now. Love those stitch details along the square edge.
Note that this card is also my take in Muse Card Challenge #97.
The muse for the challenge is from Therese Calvird and this is her card..
Now this is my take for the challenge..
For the background stamping, I used Paper Smooches Needle Little Love stamp for the stitched swirl and also added some die cut star vellum for some texture.
Quick & easy card to make.
