  5. Take your time and lift the cardstock to reveal the fun watercolor patterns.
  6. When the watercolor dries, stamp Rubber Dance Stamps Textured Flowers randomly on the card front.
  7. To add more texture to the card front, stamp the smaller textured stamps randomly around the flowers.
  8. To finish the card off, round the bottom corners using the Tab Punch Board.

{CASology and Simple} CASology – Melt

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

I have to say this cue card was so hard for me.  I was challenged to use STAMPlorations Stitched Winter Landscape die and create a card that represented the cue card.

I decided to create a scene with snow melting from the ground, building and trees.  The sun has finally come out of hiding to warm us up.

I die cute the trees and hills and used Copic markers to color them in.  I used Simon Says Stamp Happy and Smile stamp set to stamp the sun and the sentiment using Clearsnap Colorbox Petal Point Ink and Colorbox Archival Pigment Black Ink.

Nice and Easy.

What do you think?

Pocket Page Spread with Gossamer Blue

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a pocket page spread with Gossamer Blue Life Pages Kit!

I haven’t created a pocket page in awhile so when I first pulled out my supplies I was a bit rusty, LOL!!  I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do or what photos to use.

So, I looked at the kit in its entirety and decided that I would let the journaling cards lead the way.

I loved all of the green color in the kit and I knew I could get photos with some green in it!

Take a look:

My one little word arrived so I knew I need to take a picture with it.  So I put on my green coat and went outside.  I am always behind the camera so its nice to be in front of it.

Note: I use my iPhone 6s Plus for most of my shot but for these photos I pulled out my Canon EOS 70D.

When I finished taking the photos, I sat down and put the page together.  I love the currently journaling card because I was working in the moment.  This wasn’t a planned page.  I added some simple embellishments from the kit for texture.

Perfect right!!  That was so easy to put together.

Do you create pocket pages? If not, will you start?  I would love to see them!!

What do you think about my pages?  I would love to know.  Please let me know below.
