Have A Lovely Day

I have recently found the technique of stamping an outline stamp with white embossing powder and filling it in with watercolor.  I really like how this flower card turned out using the “Lovely Day” stamp set.

The card base is Lemongrass card stock stamped with a scritch scratch background stamp in Whip Cream ink.  It makes a very subtle soft backdrop.  The flower is stamped with Versa Mark ink and then heat embossed with White Embossing powder.  The flowers are water colored with a light blue and golden ink and then outlined with a darker blue ink to make them pop.  The sentiment is white heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock and I added a triple bow in Lemongrass thread.  I also added some Journey sequins for sparkle.  I like it!  Now I have to get back to making Easter cards.

Thanks for looking.

Working on Easter Cards

I’ve been working on Easter cards and have several more to go.

This bunny stamp set is All Ears from Fun Stampers Journey.  I stamped a sky background using the Brush Stroke stamp set and Pool Play and Beach Breeze inks, crisscrossing the stamp in both colors.  The bunny is inked using Bubble Gum and Pool Play ink.  The grass is made from Limeade Splash card stock and the Border Details die cut.  Everything is wrapped with a Beach Breeze ribbon bow knot and mounted on a Bubble Gum card base.  I have lots more Easter cards to make so I had better get busy.

Thanks for stopping by.

Special Birthday

I picked up this Lawn Fawn clear stamp set at a scrapbook store in New Braunfels called Scrapbook N’ More when they hosted the pop-up sale for Stamp-n-Storage in February.   It’s really a cute set and best of all it came with the die cuts.

I finally inked it up for a birthday card to send to my BFF from high school.  The hot air balloons are heat embossed in white embossing powder on watercolor paper and then colored with Kuretake Clean Color Brush Pens.  The clouds were white heat embossed on Pool Play card stock and sponged with Whip Cream ink.  The card base is Lavender Fusion card stock with Pretty Amethyst and Pool Play layered on top.  The Pool Play tag is dry embossed with a cloud embossing folder.  The sentiment is white heat embossed on Limeade Splash card stock.

Happy Birthday Teddi!  I hope you have a great year!

Thanks for stopping by.

Stamping on Tuesday (used to be Thursday)

My “friends” stamping day is now on Tuesday instead of Thursday.  It fits everyone’s schedules better.  This past Tuesday we stamped at Jody’s house and I lugged around all of my stuff this time.  I really need to plan better because I took way too much stuff.  So when we get together it’s a “free for all” as far as the projects we work on.  I made this cute Halloween card.

Mini Vaca at Port A

We just got back from a mini vacation to Port Aransas, Texas.  It was stormy the first day but the second day opened with a glorious sunrise.  The rest of the day was perfect.
