Sunflowers and Ladybugs




I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today with these two cards using new release paired up with an older set. 
When I think of sunflowers I also think of lady bugs so I decided to pair up these two stamp sets for a couple whimsical cards

To create my cards I started with a white top folding card base and a couple white panels for the images. 
For the first card I stamped the sunflowers from the Like A Sunflower set and colored them using Graph-it markers. Next I stamped the lady bug from the Garden Whimsy set which is a new release and also colored her with Graph-it markers.


The second card I stamped the ladybug, colored it then masked it off and stamped the sunflower. 
I love the whimsical look these cards have with the large images.

I am up on the Rinea Design Blog with this card using some goil foiled paper.

Que Sera Sera



I am up on the Picket Fence Studios blog today with these two cards. 
They both use the same stamp set, the stencil is the same but comes in both the 6x6 size and the Slimline size. And I used this gorgeous pastel paper glaze on both. 

My first card is a slim line created by using the Slim Line Die Cutting System. I started with a white card base and cut yellow front and the white panel using the SLDCS. I placed the Center Flower Slim Linestencil on the white pane and then added someYellow Primrose Paper Glaze with the Mix Media Spatulas. While the paper glaze was drying, I stamped some of the flowers from the Que Sera Sera set on vellum and embossed them in white powder. I flipped them over and colored the opposite side with Copic markers. I cut the Thank You die out of yellow cardstock and backed it with vellum to match the flowers. 




My second card uses the 6x6 Center Flower Stencil and I used two paper glazes in Pink Carnation and Yellow Primrose. I also used the same set Que Sera Sera but I stamped and colored the flowers on regular cardstock. I added the greeting from the Fancy Congratulations Sentiments stamp set stamped with embossing ink and embossed in gold and cut out with the Fancy Congratulations Sentiments dies

Copic Ombre'



I am up on the My Sweet Petunia blog today with this card for Team Tuesday. 

To create this card I used a technique that I learned from taking a class with Kathy Racoosin a few years ago at Junkiefest.


It's pretty simple to do and gives you a striking card in the end. 
I started with a white top folding card base and a panel for the coloring. I placed the Wls Peonies stamp set in the Original misti and stamped the image in Prickly Pear ink. I left the stamp in the MISTI because I will need to stamp it again at the end. 
Using Copic markers in RV14, RV17 and RV19 colored the entire panel  except for the image itself in an ombre'.   
I used a piece of a terry washcloth and some Copic colorless blender to add texture to the colored areas simply by blotting it all over the panel. 
I placed the panel back in the MISTI (remember I left my stamp in there) and over stamped it using embossing ink and then embossed it in gold. 
To finish the card I added the Hello die cut out with Gold foil and backed with vellum.

Release Day at The Rabbit Hole Designs



I am hopping along today with The Rabbit Hole Designs to celebrate their new release. 
To create this card I started with a top folding white card base, a Passionate Pink panel cut to the same size as the base and a piece of Distress White Heavystock.
I learned of the heavystok paper when I took Jenn Shurkus' distress class and I am in love. 
I stamped the image using Fadeout ink by Ink on 3 and watercolored it using the Atelier inks along with some Daniel Smith watercolors. 

Once I got done coloring the image I stamped the sentiment  in black and then heat embossed it with clear to make it bolder. To finish the card I cut out the panel using the new Master Layouts 4 and adhered it to the base.

A Color Challenge at MTCC



It's time for a new challenge at Make The Cards  Challenge and this week we have a color challenge I hop you will play along with us. 





To create this card, I started with a top folding white card base, a  black pale cut down a quarter of an inch smaller than the base for the mat and a panel of bristol cardstock to blend on. I find it's much easier to blend on Bristol than Neenah cardstock. 
Using the Life Changing Blender Brushes I blended Fired Brick, Mustard Seed and Mermaid Lagoon. Next I stamped the silhouette floral image from the Love at all Times set by Gina K Designs, then added the sentiment from the same set.
