Plot Your Revenge

Happy Saturday! 
I am up on the So Suzy Stamps blog today, sharing this card. Doesn't this image look like she is plotting revenge? I love it!
To make my card, I started with a Mint Macron A2 card base and a white panel cut with a stitched die. For the background I used a stencil and Mint Macron ink along with Clarity Brushes, I stamped the image Martini Lady in Versafine black onyx ink using this MISTI of course so I could overstep to get a nice crisp image. For the greeting I used Plot Your Revenge (which goes perfect with the image) I inked up the first line, "never go to bed" by itself and again using the MISTI I lined it up where I wanted it at the top of the card, then I stamped the lower part of the sentiment near the bottom. The MISTI is a great way to separate a sentiment like this and still get it straight on the card. Both of the stamps I used are from the So Suzy Stamps from the August release. To finish the card I added some enamel dots.

My Comforter

Happy Friday!
It's time to showcase another new release from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. This set  My Comforter is being released in our Creative Worship line as a bible journaling set but when paired up with Truth Quotes 1 it makes the perfect card for someone going through a struggle.
To make my card I started with a Crumb Cake  A2 card base and a sheet of watercolor paper. 
Last Friday I took a watercolor pencil class from Sandy Allnock and learned how to use my Inktense pencils a little more. I stamped the image with Versafine Black Onyx and then colored it with the pencils and smoothed it out with water. I masked off my image and then made the background wash by putting down water and taking color from the end of the pencil.

Thanks for stopping by!

Pretty Posies

Quick share for tonight, lately my days have been full so it's usually late at night before I get to sit down and stamp. Sometimes I share, sometimes I don't but I thought I would share this one with you since I made it for a couple challenges.
To make my card I started with a Strawberry Slush A2 card base and a white panel cut with my new go to stitched die from MFT's Blueprints 15. I stamped the posies and leaves from the CAS-ual Fridays set Pretty Posies and masked them to get the look of some behind the others. After they were all stamped I removed the masks and colored them with Copic markers. the greeting is from the Bold Wishes set. To finish the card I added some light blue stippling around the image.

I am entering this card in a couple challenges

It's a Beautiful Day

To be You!
Love this Beautiful Words set from Concord & 9th, along with many of their other products. Greg and Angie are super sweet and such a joy, have you watched the crafty chat over at Online Card Classes with them? they are so fun! 

Now for the deets on my card. This for a friend for her birthday and she loves Coastal Cabana, so do I, it was a sad day when Stampin Up retired Coastal Cabana, who is with me here.
To make my I started with a Coastal Cabana card base and a white panel cut using a stitched die from MFT Stamps. I used Peerless watercolors to make the background behind the butterfly from the Floral & Flutter die set, and to paint a strip to cut out the word Beautiful from the Beautiful You dies.  To line up my stamping on each side of the die cut word beautiful, I used my MISTI of course, how did I ever do cards like this without it?
To finish off the card I used some sequins from Pretty, Pink, Posh.

HB Fishes to You

To make my card, I started with a Daffodil Delight card base and some patterned paper. I stamped the images from the new Birthday Pals set in Memento ink and colored them with Copic markers. I found this cute Bokeh paper from Lawn Fawn and popped the fish up with deminsionals, I love how it looks like he's in the water. I used my Scan 'n Cut to cut out the images but matching dies are available when you purchase the Bundle.
