Muse Guest Designer

Hello! I am excited to be a guest designer for the Muse Challenge this week! You can check out all of the fun details over at the Muse blog HERE.

Here is the card I created using some stamps from WPlus9 and Penny Black. I stamped the skyline stamp from Penny Black horizontally across the card in gray ink, then stamped the sentiment in black along the lower right edge.

I stamped the flowers and leaves which are Fresh Cut Florals from WPlus9 in various colors, cut them out with the coordinating dies, and adhered them with foam tape. I added a few PPP sequins and some white Crystal Nuvo Drops to finish it up!

If you'd like to play along or learn more about the Muse Challenge, you can find all of the details on the Muse Challenge Blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A Whimsical Little Snowman

Hello there! I am sharing a super cute card today that I made for my guest spot with Whimsy Stamps!

For my card I used the adorable Candle Light stamp from Whimsy Stamps. I love snowmen anytime of year, and love getting a little head start on my winter and Christmas cards. They are my favorite to make anyway.

So I stamped this cute little guy on Canson Bristol Board and colored him with my Prismacolor Colored pencils. I added a few highlights with some white acrylic paint, and some snow with Stickles.

I stamped the sentiment which is from WPlus9 underneath and cut the panel out with a stitched rectangle die. I mounted this to a card I covered with patterned paper.

The stamp I used for my card is Candle Light and you can find it HERE.

Be sure to check out all of the cute designs at Whimsy Stamps!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

You are Mermazing

Hi there! I have a fun card to share with you created with the adorable Mermazing stamp set and Mermazing Nice and Neat Dies.

 It was love at sight when I first saw the Mermazing stamp set, and the sentiments are too cute!

I started by creating a watercolored background using watercolor paper and Peerless watercolors. I left some white along the bottom for the sand to make it look like a little underwater scene.

I colored all of the images with Copic markers and cut them out with the Mermazing Nice and Neat dies. I did some highlights on the mermaid's hair with white acrylic paint.

I adhered all of the colored images to my watercolored background with foam tape and added some clear accent dots to look like bubbles.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today! Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your weekend and week ahead!

Whimsy Stamps Guest Designer

Hello! I hope you all are enjoying the last bit of weekend here! I am excited to be guesting with Whimsy Stamps this month, and I have my first card to share with you today! They have some really cute images, that are so much fun to color!

I chose this adorable stamp called Oak Tree Girl to work with for my first card. She is probably supposed to be colored for fall, but since it's Springtime, I decided to go with some brighter colors. I colored her with Copic markers, and added some accents with white acrylic paint.

I used some patterned paper I had in my stash to cover my card base then layered the colored image on top of that with a large piece of Fun Foam. I also added a few sequins to finish it up!

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit Whimsy Stamps to see all of the fun images they have in their store!

The Ton's Spring 2017 Release Blog Hop

Hello! I am thrilled to be joining the Ton's Spring 2017 Release Blog hop! They have 18 gorgeous new stamp sets and 13 new dies sets! All of their new products are available now in the store at The Ton HERE! There are prizes to be won too, so be sure to scroll down to the bottom for details!

I'm using a beautiful new set called Wishful Wildflowers for my first card. I stamped the images in waterproof black ink and used my Zig Clean Color brush markers and water to watercolor them. 

The sentiment is stamped in the same black ink and it is from the new stamp set Pragmatic Wreaths.

Using some of the same colors that I watercolored the flowers with, I speckled around the images. I also added some tiny white dots with acrylic paint, and added some Rain Stones for accents.

For my next card, I used the beautiful new Fresh Cut Sunflowers stamp set. These are really so pretty and detailed! I used three shades of aqua for each flower and did the centers and leaves with gray.

I used the MISTI to stamp everything as the flowers are done with three layers, creating such a beautiful dimensional flower. I also lightly stamped some of the flowers in the background along with some of the tiny flowers from Pragmatic Wreaths.

I mounted my stamped background onto a white card base and adhered a strip of gray card stock across the center with the sentiment stamped on it. The sentiment is also from the Pragmatic Wreaths set. I added some accents with white Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Five $25 gift certificates to The Ton's shop will be given away to random commenters from the hop participant blogs.  To qualify, you must leave a comment on The Ton Blog Hop post. The comment period will close on Monday, April 10th at 11:59pm. Winners will be announced thereafter on The Ton’s blog.
