Thank you card using Nuvo Glitter Paste and Distress Ink

Welcome Back!
I have a simple but pretty card for you today.

I used the MFT Stencil Abstract and ink blended the Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers onto it. I then spread on some Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone. 

I did have a little leakage of the paste under the stencil but...oh well.

I then used some velum and white card stock to cut out the SSS Big Thanks sentiment.
It was then mounted onto a simple white card base.
I didn’t add anything else since wanted to keep it simple since had all that sparkle.


Thank you  for coming by and see you next time!

Concord and 9th Wreath Turnabout Stamp Set


Welcome Back!

Today I have three cards I made using the Concord and 9th Wreath Turnabout stamp set.

These were so fun to make and made me feel like a wizard of creating a wreath with hardly any effort.



The stamp set had the options for the above and below cards of a full circle wreath
 and a circle wreath.

I don't have many dye inks so all of these are made using Distress Oxide Inks.
I did use the Tim Holtz and Tonic Stamp Platform to get perfect positioning and stamping.


Distress Oxide Inks: 
Evergreen Bough
Seedless Preserves
Shaded Lilac
Wilted Violet

Nuvo Jewel Drops:
Key Lime
Grey Mist
Pale Periwinkle



Distress Oxide Inks:
Twisted Citron
Tattered Rose
Worn Lipstick
Picked Raspberry 

Sentiment:
SSS BIG THANKS Wafer Dies

Nuvo Jewel Drops:
Key Lime
Grey Mist
Strawberry Coulis


Distress Oxide Inks:
Twisted Citron
Tattered Rose
Abandoned Coral
Picked Raspberry 

I changed out the Worn Lipstick for the Abandoned Coral because I felt looked too similar to the Picked Raspberry. 

Sentiment:
Simon Says Stamp LOVE Wafer Die

Nuvo Jewel Drops:
Key Lime
Grey Mist
Strawberry Coulis

Thank you again for visiting and I hope you have a great day!

You are so Cool card using SSS So Cool Stamp Set


Hey guys!
I was lucky to win a Instagram from @escards and this SSS So Cool 
was one of the stamp sets.
I made this card to mail to her to say thanks!


I had the idea to make it like melted popsicles on the card. 
It has harder than I thought to water color messy. 

I heat embossed the images with white embossing powder and used 
my Gansai Tambi Watercolors to color them in a rainbow


I then used Distress Oxide in Black Soot to add some black splatter and mounted onto some black and white patterned paper.


I added another image into the inside.


I also added some of the images onto the front and back flap of the envelope.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I will see you next time!

Alcohol Ink and SSS Everything Together Stamp Set

Hello,
When I was chosen in the Color Throwdown Challenge I made a few different backgrounds that were of the lime and turquoise scheme.
I went with another one for the challenge but had this lovely background left.


I used Limeade and Turqoise alcohol inks onto some Yupo paper. 

I heat embossed the sentiment from the SSS Everything Together stamp set 
that came in the May Card Kit.
I the mounted it onto some dark card stock.



I added some sequins in yellow and green colors to add same sparkle!
Thanks for visiting!

Happy Birthday Card using MFT Bubble Technique

Hey There! 
So I watched this My Favorite Things YouTube video where they
made some bubbles using a circle stencil.

The trouble was...I didn’t have this stencil but I did have a Silhouette Cameo!
I made my own stenci from card stock and various circle cut outs.


I followed very closely to the video cause I cant lie, I was sure I was gonna mess it up.
I used a ton of Distress Inks and mixed them up in the bubbles.

Distress Inks:
Abandoned Coral
Worn Lipstick
Carved Pumpkin
Squeezed Lemonade
Twisted Citron
Mowed Lawn
Peacock Feathers
Mermaid Lagoon
Wilted Violet



I then cut out the sentiment also using the Silhouette.
I cut out 3 of the sentiment in white and then I cut it out of the inked background.
That was the terrifying bit and hoping I have it on the mat right and that is stuck on good.


I then used a white gel pen to add the shine bits onto the bubbles. 


I put the background onto some black and white pattern paper. 

I had a ton of fun making this card and will definitely make again!


Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!
