End of Summer

Good Morning.
Meet today's card.  Very simple one using this great technique with video by my sweet friend Loll Thompson that I am now addicted to!!

This technique is super simple and makes a background simple and quickly.
For my card, I rubbed Broken China Distress Oxide ink onto my non-stick craft sheet, sprayed with water and 'slapped' my paper into the wet ink getting the splashed look on my card front.
I repeated that process using some Faded Jeans Distress Oxides to add more depth and colour.
I dried between the layers to create the water drops that looks like an ocean spray.

When that was all dry and I was happy with the colour layering, I stamped the sentiment using my Misti with black Memento ink then clear heat embossed.
I die-cut the birds and glued them onto my card front.


I hate to see summer end but right now we are having summer weather that I will totally enjoy.
Have a great rest of your wknd.

Love Letter- CAS Watercolour Challenge

Welcome
It's time for another card for the 
 This month our theme is silhouette...right up my alley!



This card came together so quickly.
I inked the background using an acylic sheet and some Brushos.  The acrylic sheet is a backing from one of my stamp sets that is thin and flexible.
So, I sprinkled some Leaf Green Brushos onto the acrylic sheet, sprayed it with a bit of water to activate the ink and pressed onto my paper.  I repeated that process using some Turquoise Brushos and water until I was happy with the colour placement.  Since the acrylic sheet is so thin, I could bend it and place the ink exactly where I wanted it to go.
 Next, I placed this Love Letter stamp (new-to-me) into my Misti, inked with Archival Black ink and stamped.  It has all the details and splatters already on it so it's a super easy stamp to use and get great details and interest with little effort.  I clear embossed the image to get it to really pop.
I did add a hint of stenciling behind the main image using a Tim Holtz stencil and some Distress ink.
 



Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
You still have time to come and play along with us too.

Season's Greetings Poinsettia- The Flower Challenge


Good morning.
Meet my first holiday card of the year.  
Yes, I'm way behind as life has gotten in the way.

It's also time for more fun at 


I used the middle diagonal themes- Gems, Watercolor, CAS.

So, I began by placing this lovely Penny Black poinsettia called Red Star into my Misti,  coloured directly onto the rubber with my Tombow markers, sprayed with water and stamped.
I repeated that process starting with the lightest shade of marker and adding some darker color until I was happy with the impression.  I also used my Prismacolor Pencils to add additional detail to the flower centers and blended that out using a wet paintbrush.
I stamped the sentiment using my Misti again and clear heat embossed it.
To add interest to the background, I stamped the PB Script using Versamark ink, then white heat embossed it.
 Lastly, I rubbed the whole piece with Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick Distress ink.



Thanks so very much for coming by and taking a look!

Summer's End

Good Morning.

I must say that I am sad to see the summer ending but the crisp, cool Fall air feels refreshing.
Happy to have some time to stamp today and play with some new-to-me stamps.

I wanted to create a washed watercolour background for my card.  I did that simply by inking up my long acrylic block with Distress inks, sprayed with water and dragged the ink over the front of my card.  It is a super easy way to add ink yet leaving some white space behind.

Next, using my Misti, I stamped the flowers across the panel.  To add a bit of interest, I stamped the chevrons along the side too.  I think it just helped to break up all the flowers.
Stamped the sentiment and mounted it onto a white card base keeping it very clean and simple.


Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Simple Pleasures

Hello and Welcome.

I haven't had much time for stamping these days.
Very happy to be able to create a card today.

This card is simple and clean looking using a fresh colour of green Distress Oxide ink.  Love how you can easily stamp over these inks and they are great for creating layered backgrounds.
For this bkg. I must give a big shout-out to my friend Loll Thompson and her video:

Very fun and easy tutorial to follow too!
Hope you check it out.

I used Peeled Paint DOX for my background and when dry, I stamped the images over the inky green using my Misti.  To add further interest to my card, I stenciled the clock face to one side and the dots on the other.
 I love how this card turned out, simple and quick to create.


Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
Enjoy your weekend.

Tic Tac Toe- The Flower Challenge

Good Morning.  
Today is the day for a new theme at 

So fun this month as we are playing Tic Tac Toe!


My tic tac toe is a diagonal row down....sentiment, watercolour, white.

I began by stamping the flowers called Flora Bella twice onto my heavy white cardstock; once at the top and once on the bottom using my Misti. 
Next, I pressed my Distress ink pads onto my non-stick craft sheet and picked up the colour with a wet paintbrush being very careful not to get the ink onto the flower petals, leaving them white.
I added layers of colour, blending them as I went along.
When dry, using a fine line black marker, I added some small dots to fill in some of the blank spaces.

While that dried, I stamped my sentiment with Versamark ink onto black cardstock, then white heat embossed it.  I added it using pop dots onto my card front.



That's it.  Very simple, clean looking card.
Thanks so very much for coming by and taking a look.
I hope you will come and play along with us this month.

Lovely Silhouettes- CAS Watercolour Challenge

Hello and Welcome.
Time for another theme at the 



I just love silhouette stamps, so I was excited to see our theme this month and I had just picked up this lovely set from Simon Says and wanted to play with it!

I began making my card by masking off the area on my card front using Painter's Tape.
I stamped the thistles using my Misti and Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  I then clear heat embossed them so that there would be no black bleeding into my background when I added the watercolouring.

Leaving the taped mask in place, I watercoloured the background using Distress inks and a wet paintbrush.  Just press your ink pad directly onto your acrylic block or non-stick pad and pick up the colour using a wet paintbrush.
I did some stenciling using drywall tape just on the blue area to add interest.
After removing the painter's tape and to help pull the whole thing together, I doodled a border around the watercoloured area.  I stamped the sentiment then splattered some white acrylic paint over the bkg. for further interest and texture.



Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
Hope you will come and play along with us.

This Special Day

Hello and Welcome
Playing with some Penny Black stamps and my much loved Distress inks.

I began by placing the Delicate Florals inside my Misti, inked with Versamark, stamped then clear heat embossed with my heat tool.  That created a resist that I could ink over the top of.
Using my foam inking tool, I began on the top right corner, rubbing Peacock Feathers Distress ink onto my white cardstock.  I continued next with Salty Ocean then Faded Jeans at the bottom trying to blend all the colours as I went along.  

I stamped the sentiment from the Treasured Sentiment collection with Memento black ink then using some water, I splattered it over my card front to lift some of the colour and add interest.



Have a great weekend and thanks so much for the visit.

Thoughts of You

Good Morning.

I found a flourish mask that I have had in my stash for years.  I don't know who made it or where I got it but it was the starting point for my card.

 I applied the mask to my white cardstock, then using different colours of Distress inks I watercoloured bands of colour onto my card front.  Just press the ink pads directly onto a non-stick pad, add some water and use a paint brush to paint with.  I used a wide bristle brush and kept adding colour until I was happy with the tones.  When I removed the mask, the white area of the card was left behind.
  Next, using the flourish from Technique Tuesday I stamped that over the white masked area and to the left for interest.  It created kind of a shadow effect.
I stamped the sentiment from an old Hero Arts set then splattered with white acrylic paint to help brighten up the whole card.


Thanks so very much for coming by and taking a look.
Have a great Friday!

Feel With Your Heart

Meet today's card.

Last week, I was playing along with some of the great challenges over at Splitcoast Stampers and this is the card I came up with.
Very simple stamping and sponging.

I love this great sentiment from Rubbernecker, stamped it first so I could get an idea where to put my flowers. 
Next, I stamped the flower from Magenta and wanted to try and ground them by adding some colour and stamping behind.  I sponged the edges and added some Nuvo drops and done.

Just a Bit More Salt- The CAS Watercolour Challenge

Hello
It's time for another card for the 



It's been such a fun month playing with salt and trying to see the results we can achieve using it.
There are some really great links on the main blog for you to try and some wonderful cards to inspire.

So for my card, I began with a piece of the heavy white cardstock I usually use.
I sprayed it with water, then dropped drips of Distress re-inkers onto the wet paper.  I sprayed again to help blend the colours then sprinkled on some Sea Salt and left it to dry.
Love how the salt absorbs the ink and leaves behind a beautiful patterned piece of card.

To keep it simple, I die cut a frame and mounted the inked piece behind that.  I die cut the flowers and added them over the piece.
I scored diagonal lines on my card front to add more interest and pop dotted the framed salted piece over that.



 Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
I hope you will play along with us.

Background Stamping- The Flower Challenge

Good Morning

Time for another card for 


This is a great challenge to use stamps to create your own background paper.

I began by placing my flower stamp from the Blooming with Kindness set inside my Misti, inked with black Memento ink and stamped them randomly over my card front.
Instead of colouring the flowers, I decided to colour in the background so the lovely details and features of the flowers would really show up.
I splattered the bkg with some diluted ink then cut the panel to add interest.
The sentiment was stamped and then I punched it into a circle.  I pop dotted it and added the enamel button.

Froggy Wishes

Kids cards....fun and easy.
Here's one I made for a special little girl.

I picked up this adorable frog stamp and die from the last craft show I attended and wanted to use it.
I began by placing the frog inside my Misti and randomly stamped it over my card front.

I stamped it again and using the die, cut it out then coloured it with my Zigs.  
I die cut a circle then stamped the sentiment and glued the coloured frog over that.
Very quick, happy feeling card.

In the Moment

Good Morning.

I have been enjoying playing with my Distress Oxide inks and seeing what I can come up with.
For today's card, I rubbed DOX right onto my non-stick craft mat, sprayed with water and dragged my paper through the ink.  Love how it layers and give sort of a 'chalky' look to the texture of your card.  I kept pressing my paper into the ink using 2 different colours until I was happy with the coverage.

I then placed my inked piece inside my Misti and stamped this great sentiment first so I would know how much room I had to stamp the flowers.
I stamped the flowers in black and then to add interest, I stamped them again using more of the same colour of DOX that I had used for the bkg. to give a shadow effect.
I splattered on some water to lift some of the colour...another fun effect you can achieve with these inks.
Pretty simple and straightforward.

Get Well WIshes

Good Morning.

I created a get well card for you today by using the  
Stencil Monoprinting technique for the background.

So for those of you that are not familiar with this technique, you ink the stencil with a water based ink, spray it with water and press it onto your paper.  You will get a more loose, open look from the stencil but I really like the results you can achieve.  It is also another way to get a different look using the stencils you already have on hand.
Next, I placed the flowers stamps from Tim Holtz and Magenta into my Misti, inked with Tuxedo black and stamped.  I filled in some of the areas on the side where the ink didn't quite make it using the Mixed Media stamps from Stamplorations.
The sentiment is from Studio G.

Queen Anne's Lace

Good Morning.
Meet today's card.

I made this one using a very fun technique called Tissue Paper Watercolour.
Please check out the great video my friend 

So I began by re-inkers directly onto my non-stick craft mat, sprayed with water then pressed the tissue paper into the wet ink.  
It is good to have some wrinkles and bumps in it, they add interest.  
I then set it aside to dry.  That's the hard part, the wait.  You could also help it along by drying it with a heat tool but I decided to be patient.
When it was dry, I glued it onto a piece of acetate and let it dry.
** I didn't have any regular acetate on hand but I do own a laminator, so I laminated one of those sheets together and used that.  It was nice and sturdy and great to use!! ** 
I die-cut the flowers from the TH Wildflowers and glued it over the acetate side.
Lastly, I die-cut the Wonky Stitched frame, mounted my piece behind the frame and pop-dotted it onto my plain white card front.

Washi Notecard

Welcome.
Here is a simple notecard I made using washi tape I have sitting in a drawer.
I need to try and use more of the things I have...I know what you are saying...'yay, right!'

I began with a piece of heavy, white cardstock and put stripes of washi tape on the diagonal.  I left space between the rows so I could add some scored perforations using my ScorBug on my ScorPal.  It gave nice texture and more interest to my card front.
For those of you that have never used washi before, it is so easy to lift and move around it you don't get it straight the first time without ripping your paper.
Next, I die-cut the flowers in black and white and glued them over the tape. 
I chose to mount the piece onto blue cardstock just to give it some colour.

It's nice to have some little notecards on hand.

Jumping for Joy

Good Morning.
Simple, happy card today using a technique I showed a few weeks ago that I called 
Basically, it is stenciling over a stencil.

I began by masking my card front using Painter's Tape then using some Peeled Paint Distress ink and stenciled the TCW Chicken Wire as the bkg.  I then took some drywall tape and stenciled over that using Peacock Feather.
Using my Misti, I stamped this wonderful image then this fun sentiment.
I clear heat embossed both to help make the black pop.
Lastly, I splattered some diluted Distress ink to look like rain and rubbed more ink along the card edges.

Beach Life

Good Morning.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I am playing along with some of the challenges at Splitcoast.
This was a long weekend here for us, so I had time to play.
I made 2 cards using the same stamps but totally different techniques which I will do my best to explain.

The card above was really an experiment to see what would happen if I used hot glue on my cardstock.  I had read about a technique using it with heat embossing so thought I would give it a whirl.
I began with heavy weight cardstock and squeezed a line of hot glue onto my paper.  While it was still hot, I used a credit card to pull the glue downwards and really didn't know what to expect.  Before it cooled, I sprinkled on some white embossing powder and melted that with my heat gun.  After it cooled, it reminded me of water and a wave so I inked up the background with Distress Oxide ink and then using my Misti, stamped the birds and the sentiment.
Fun to try something new.




The second card is more straight forward.

For this card, I watercolored the background using Distress inks, then using my Misti, I stamped the same birds as above.  
For the card front, I used a piece of drywall tape to stencil using Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn Distress inks.  I thought the green was a nice compliment to the colours in the scene.  I stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant using black Memento ink and mounted the scene over the bkg using foam dots.


Well there you have it.  Two different cards using the same stamps.
 Thanks so much for the visit!
