Bluebonnets



Happy Sunday! 
It's time for a new challenge at AAA Cards and I love the twist to this one, Positivity. We all could use a little more positivity in this sometimes cruel world. I look forward to seeing your take on the twist if you do to use it. 



For my card I used the A Bluebonnet stamp for the July Release by Picket Fence Studios.  I started with a white top folding card base and a watercolor paper panel. I stamped the bluebonnet with the black hybrid ink and then used some Daniel Smith watercolors to paint it.  I laid down a yellow wash to start with and then painted the image. After it was dry I came back and added some highlights with a white gel pen. 
This card was inspired by my friend, Lydia. She is an amazing watercolorer and artist. This uses my attempt at one of the techniques she uses called atmospheric water coloring

Daisies



Happy Saturday! 
It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS and our hostess is Bobby and she chose the code word Daisy.


To create this clean and simple card I started with a white top folding card base  some Wild Dandelion ink and this gorgeous Stamp set, Delightful Daisies by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. 
I created a watercolor wash in the center using the Wild Dandelion ink and then stamped the image in black amalgam ink by Gina K Designs.
Quick and easy card to send to someone who could use a hug!

Whoville


I am up on the Picket Fence Studios blog today with a Christmas card for you. 

I used one of the July release sets Leave as a Friend, that totally reminds me of Dr. Seuss and Whoville so I decided to make it into a Christmas card. I also brought in Rudolph by adding a red nose to the lead reindeer. 

To create this card, I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel, the background as created by using the Life Changing Blending Brushes and some In The Navy and Blue Denim ink by Gina K Designs. 
I added some snow using a white gel pen. I stamped the reindeer from the Santa's Sleigh Ride set, colored them using Copic markers and cut them out with the Santa's Sleigh Ride coordinating dies. Next I stamped the house image from the Leave as a Friend on piece of white card stock and colored it using Copic markers and left all of the roofs white to look like snow and added some Nuvo Aqua Shimmer in clear to them. I used the Leave as a Friend coordinating die to cut them out.  The greeting is from the Santa's Sleigh Ride set.

Photo Inspiration




It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More  and this week we have an Inspiration Photo for you.



To create my card I started with a white top folding card base and aa piece of woodgrain patterned paper. I cut a heart out of the woodgrain paper and then stamped the anchor image by Reverse Confetti on a scrap piece of card stock using In the Navy ink by Gina K designs and then cut it out using the coordinating die. The greeting is from the same set.

Keep Swimming


I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today with these two fun get well cards.
The set I used, Fin-tastic Friends is from our July release and so fun to play with. 
 I run a facebook group Because Kindness and there are some children that I need to send out to and this set was perfect. 
If you are a carmaker I would love for you to joinery group, just be sure to answer the questions.
For the first card I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel. I used a Gina K Designs stencil , distress oxide inks and the Life Changing Blending Brushes to create the background. I stamped the images and colored them using Copic markers and cut them out with the ScanNCut.
For the greeting I used a sentiment from the Mer-mazing set.


For the second card, I started with a white top folding base, the same set Fin-tastic Friends and a different stencil also by Gina K Designs and some distress oxides and of course the Life Changing Blending Brushes for the background. I just love those puffer fish! 

We have a blog hop going on tomorrow so be sure to check back.

Feliz Cumpleaรฑos (Happy Birthday)



Happy Friday! 
Today I am sharing a birthday card with you that uses one of the latest releases by Joy Clair, No Probllama. This is a super cute set and even has a couple of spanish sentiments as well. 
To create this card I started with a white top folding card base, a piece of black onyx for the mat and a white panel for the focal panel. I stamped the Llama and colored him using Copic markers and then stamped the banners across for the background. To finish the card stamped the greeting on a a piece of Black Onyx using Gina K embossing ink and heat embossed it using white powder, cut it down using the Cut-Align and popped it on the front of the card.
