New Baby Card featuring Bundle of Baby Clothes Die-namics

Happy Monday!! 

This is a card I made to welcome our new nephew! 
The moment my sis in law told us she was pregnant again I bought this adorable My Favorite Things Bundle of Baby Clothes Dienamics set.

I used Distress Oxide Inks for all the coloring. The background was done with Salty Ocean and of course flicked some water to add some texture.  I then used my fave rectangle stiched Die from the MFT Blueprint 13 Die-natmics to emboss instead of cut the back piece. 

The clothes were done with Candied Apple, Wilted Violet, Lucky Clover, Fossilized Amber and Faded Jeans. 
 I didn’t want the blending totally solid and really like the variation in each piece. 

I used some of the clothes to also decorate the inside. 

The sentiment is from the MFT Welcome Baby stamp set. 
I then used some Nuvo Jewel Drops to add some fun dots onto it and they picked up the color of the background. 

Thank you for visiting and I will see you in the next post!

Birthday Card using Simon Says Stamp Artsy Flower Parts stamp set

Welcome back!
Today I have a card I made for a close friend of mines birthday. 

I wanted to create a whole background using these awesome flowers from the SSS Artsy Flowers stamp set. I stamped with SSS black ink and colored with the Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush pen. I then spritzed some Glimmer Mist onto the background to add some shimmer.

I cut the SSS Happy Birthday die cut 4 times to give some dimension. 
I put it on top of some vellum since afraid the background would be too busy to stand out.

I then used some of the gorgeous Studio Katia Sparkling Crystals Mix to give it some more sparkle.

I used a couple of the same images for the inside of the card.
I’m trying to do this more cause it just makes the inside a bit more special.

Thank you so much for coming over and I will see you next time!

Zig water colored Fractile Leaves

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! 

Today I have another Thanksgiving card. I am new to card making and stamping but man it is rare to find Thanksgiving stamps. I do apologize in advance because you will be seeing cards using the same two stamp sets. They both happen to be of leaves.

I am using the SSS Fractile Leaves stamp set.
I heat embossed the leaves onto some Kraft cardstock using Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder.

I then water colored using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers in a variety of greens, reds and yellows. I cut the panel using the MFT Die-namics Blueprints 13 rectangle die. I matted it on some Rusty colored cardstock.

The sentiment is from the SSS Ornate Leaves stamp set. I heat embossed it onto a strip of vellum and accented the strip with a uncolored leaf.

Thank you for coming by and see you next time!

Color Throwdown #469 using MFT Merry Christmas Greeting

Welcome back!

Today I have the second card I made for the Color Throwdown #469.

The colors this week are Light Blue, Blue and Silver.

This time I watercolored the background with my Gansai Tambi watercolors. 

I then used Versamark to heat emboss this awesome and large My Favorite Things Merry Christmas Greeting Stamp with some Silver Glitter Embossing powder by Recollections. 

I then used Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass onto the My Favorite Things Let it Snowflake Too Dienamics. 

I used the same embossing powder to make a matte for the background piece. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and I will see you in the next post.

Color Throwdown Challege #469 using SSS & CZ Design Coolest Yulest

Happy Thursday!

I busted out all my Turkey Day cards so I got to play with the
The colors are Light Blue, Blue and Silver.

 I loved the colors so much that I made two cards. 
One using black as the acccent and one with just the challenge colors. 

I made the above card using the Simon Says stamp and CZ design Coolest Yulest stamp set.
I used Distress Oxide ink in Broken China and Salty Ocean for the background. I then heat embossed the images with a silver glitter embossing powder.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and stamped with Versafine Ink. 

I used a few of the same images and same ink to stamp the inside. 

I will post tomorrow with the second card I made for this challenge. Until then, I hope you have a fantastic day and I will see you next time.

Thank You Card using SSS Emma background and Distress Inks

Hey Ya'll

Today I have a Thank You card to show you. 
Man I just love Distress Inks with embossed resist background. 

I first heat embossed the Simon Says Stamp Emma background stamp with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder. 

I used Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean to smoosh the background into .

 In between the pouncing I would dry the background to get better definition without muddling all together. I used my fave rectangle stitched die from the MFT Die-namics Blueprints 13. 

I used my Silhouette to create the sentiment. I used the Lucinda Handwriting font, welded the letters together and then did a offset of 1.00 that I cut from some vellum. 

I put the background onto some shimmery card stock I got from Michaels and then put onto a Neenah  110 lb card base. 

See you next time!
