Life Happens, Coffee Helps

Hello Friends, are you ready for another sneak?
Today I created a card using a stamp set called Sassy Girl thoughts, it has really great sentiments with images to coordinate.
For this card I stamped the sentiment first in black ink, then randomly but not randomly stamped the coffee mug over the card front.  The coffee cups were colored in using Copic markers!

For You

Hello friends!
I am sharing a sneak peek at one of the new products releasing in April from Technique Tuesday.  Its a border tulip die.  It cuts the silhouette of a tulip off the edge of card stock!  I added water color to the inside of the tulip, but you could certainly add ink with a sponge dauber, copic markers or even leave in plain.  So many possibilities!!

Wishing You Love

Hello friends.  Today I am sharing a watercolored card with you today.  For this particular card, I new I was going to be using pigmented water colors (sennelier) and a lot of water, so I used Arches water color paper. This card probably took 2 days to create, only because I fully allow the paper to dry before adding additional color, when I don't want colors to bleed into each other.  Some of the red and yellow did, because I laid those colors at the same time.
The images and sentiment are in the Lily Wishes stamp set (now on sale) from Technique Tuesday.  I love coloring in their florals with watercolors!
To embellish I added clear Nuvo drops.

materials used
Sennelier water colors
Da Vinci water color brush
Arches water color paper
kraft card stock
foam adhesive

Miss You

This was such a fun stationery and envelope project to create!  I die cut white card stock with the scalloped stitched rectangle die, stamped my sentiment then colored in with copic markers.  What I love about this "card" is the envelope I created for it using the Gotta Have Gingham pattern paper!
Right now I am addicted to creating my own envelopes.
There are punches, templates, dies help create an envelope.  If you have a scoring tool, most likely there is a template online to help you out.

Happy Cards

Hello friends!
I am having to do a few days of catch-up today, I thought I pre-scheduled my blog posts, but they never went live :(  Sometimes you win some, some times you lose some.  I was away at Walt Disney World with my son for 4 days and it was amazing. I am however sad, that the time I put into my blog posts is gone.  Oh well.

My first card was made using the Peekaboo backdrops as well as other Lawn Fawn dies, to create a clean and graphic card with no stamping.  A lot of crafters do not stamp, so I wanted to show how versatile this new back drop is.  I think it would be a lot of fun to create a scrapbook page using this die!

 Next up, I have this watercolored card using the Happy Village stamp set.  I originally had the images die cut, but after I die cut them I realized it didn't look right with a white border around the die cuts.  So, I used scissors and trimmed as close to the stamped image as possible.  The images were popped up using foam adhesive.

Lastly, I have this fun watercolored background card with a bold sentiment.  The alien from Beam me Up kind of reminded me of a sick flu bug lol, so I thought is was perfect for a "feel better" card.

Happy Birthday

Hello friends!
Today is a card from the Beam Me Up stamp set from Lawn Fawn.  It has cute little aliens and space crafts, and the sentiments are so punny.
When I started this card, I had no idea how long I would be blending that ink lol.  I blended for over an hour, and I thought I was crazy.  But, I love how it turned out and have #noregrets.
The stars and sentiment were stamped in white ink, then heat embossed in white embossing powder.

Made for each other

Hello friends!  Another day and another card to share. 
To see the full reveal of this stamp set, head on over to the Technique Tuesday blog.
I kind of had in my mind how I wanted to use this die and stamp set, thats always fantastic and a sign of a great product.  I started by adding color to watercolor paper, using pink, red, purple and aqua Zig pens.  I did the same to the base of the card, using the same water color paper and pens.
Once the watercolor was dry-ish, I stamped the sentiment onto the card bas, then diecut the heart a few times.  I adhered it to the card using foam tape.  Using the remaining diecut, using the center piece of the puzzle (and a different color), I adhered it to the heart using foam adhesive.
To embellish, pink sparkly Nuvo drops were used.
