Hello Card using Altenew Totally Tropical Stamp Set

Welcome back!
I love anything that reminds me of Hawaii so I just had to
 get this Altenew Totally Tropical stamp set. 

I stamped the images totally random to make my own background using Distress Oxide Inks and then after I flicked on some Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink. 

I cut it using the MFT Blueprints 13 Die-namics stitched rectangle die and put 
onto some gray card stock 

I white heat embossed the sentiment onto the gray card stock and backed it with some 
vellum to just add a little something. 

I  finished it off with some Nuvo Jewel Drops in Grey Mist to add some dimension and shine. 

Distress Oxide Inks 
Lucky Clover
Cracked Pistachio
Candied Apple
Abandoned Coral
Fossilized Amber
Spiced Marmalade 
Wild Honey
Black Soot

Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you next time!

Congrats card using Distress Oxide Water Paining Technique

Welcome Back 
I am sure you can see that I really loved using Jennifer McGuire's technique of the water painting. 

Today I have a card I made to send to a friend who became new homeowners. 

I just love the combo of these Distress Oxide Colors even though both blue. 
I white heat embossed the flowers onto some Bristol Smooth card stock and then ink blended on top. 

Stamp Set:
  W Plus 9 Beautiful Bouquets: Dahlias

Distress Oxide Inks:
Salty Ocean
Blueprint Sketch

Simon Says Stamp PAINTED CONGRATS Wafer Die

I glued the sentiment onto some dark gray card stock and then cut out leaving a border. 

To finish it up I added some sequins to add some sparkle. 

Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you have a fantastic day!

Distress Oxide Water Painting Birthday Card


I have another card using the Distress Water Painting technique by Jennifer McGuire. 

I used the SSS Spring Flowers and More Spring Flowers  stamps sets with Versamark to white heat emboss the images on Bristol Smooth card stock.

I ink blended Tattered Rose and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Inks. I focused the Tattered Rose in the center with the Abandoned Coral on the outside.

I used a water brush to paint on the images and soak up with a paper towel. After it was dry I went in and painted the images with watered down Tattered Rose.

 It was then cut out using the MFT Blueprints 13 rectangle die.

The love sentiment is using the SSS LOVE wafer die and cut from Neenah Metallic card stock.
The other part of the sentiment is from SSS You Matter and All My Love stamp sets

I finished it up with some Nuvo Jewel Drops in Grey Mist.

Till next time...Have a fantastic day!!

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 


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. 

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

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!
