Is Mint Your Color?

Hello everyone!!  Is Mint Your Color?

I’m asking because I see so many different crafty related things and they come in the color mint, which is so pretty!!

So I decided to create a card using the color mint!

Take a look:

Be Thoughtful

I used Clearsnap Colorbox Archival Wicked Black Dye Ink, Clearsnap Pigment Ink by Teresa Collins, and Clearsnap Jumbo Design Fun Flourish Wheel to create the beautiful mint background.

Then I used Concord & 9th Being Classy stamp set to stamp the sentiment.

Simple but so elegant!!

There’s No Place Like Home….

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with Casology Challenge Week 118: Home!

Week 118 - Home

First let me say Thank you to Judy and the other ladies over at CASology for choosing my candy apple card as an Honorable Mention.  I was so excited to see my card on the list.  Just in case you missed that card you can find it here.

Now on to the card for this week.

When I first saw the cue word, I wasn’t sure what to do because I do not have any home stamps, dies nothing.  I have pattern paper with homes on them but that didn’t appeal to me.

On Wednesday, as I was cleaning up and organizing my dies, I found a Lawn Fawn Die that I didn’t even know I had.

Happy Trails Lawn Cuts

Its the Happy Trails die set. I said to myself, why do I have this and not the stamp set.  That didn’t make sense to me.  I look thought my stamps every day and have never seen a set that matches this.  So, I didn’t give it a second thought.

On Thursday, something told me to check my stamp sets to check if I had the matching stamps that goes with that die.  If I do not have that set, then I would give the die set away.  So, I check and BAM, there was the stamp set.  I laughed so hard because we are all guilty of buying stamps, dies and there tools and forgetting that we even have certain things.

So, I looked at the stamp set and wondered what can I do with this set?  What did I buy it for?  Then it hit me, people live in there RV’s too.  I do have a home stamp.  Now I can enter the challenge!!

Here is my card:

Home

Yeah, I can see a family calling this RV home.  Out in the woods, enjoying nature and not having to worry about anyone bothering them.  Imagine moving your entire home from state to state without having to pack.  I love it!!!

I used these Copic colors to color my RV: YR02, YR04, YR07, R24,N4, N5, BG02, Y15 and Trees: G02, G07

I created a mask to cover the entire card front except the circle.  I used Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue Ink for the sky and Ranger Archival Ink Leaf Green Ink for the grass.

So what do you think?  Can this pass as a home?  Let me know what you think.

Flowers…

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today playing with the Muse Challenge #76.  I missed it last week.  I created a card but didn’t get a chance to post it.  So I wanted to make sure I get this week’s card in.

This week’s Muse is Therese Calvird.  Take a look at her card.

friends

This challenge was a little difficult for me because I hardly create cards with flowers on it.  I have the hardest time placing the flowers or even building them.

I gave it a try this go round and I’m ok with the results.  I’m not in love with it but I think its a good start.

Take a look at my card:

Hey you are my favorite

I used Simon Says Stamp Favorite Flowers Stamp Set to create my flower bed.

I used Papertrey Ink Summer Sunrise ink and Hero Arts Green Hills Shadow Ink.

I tried to make this card as simple as I could because I really don’t know how flowers should look on a card.

Please let me know what you think, good or bad.

Who Do You Feel Strongly About?

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with Casology week 104.  The Cue Card is Pet!! I’m also linking this card to Addicted to Stamps and their challenge is CLEAN AND SIMPLE (CAS).

Week 104 - Pet

Addicted to Stamps

When I first saw the word I immediately thought of a pet animal.  I figured everyone would choose that so I decided to look up the meaning of the word “pet” to see what else it means.

I decided to go with pet as an adjective: to feel particularly strongly about someone or something.

Take a look at my card:

Love you with heartss

Nothing like a father’s love for his only daughter!

I decided to do a one layer card with a lot of white space, one focal point and a sentiment, CLEAN AND SIMPLE (CAS) at its best.

My Koala’s are from my new Sweet Stamp Shop Koala stamp set and my sentiment and hearts are from Lawn Fawn’s Love You Tons stamp set.

I used my Copic markers #B12, B14, #R20, R24 and C3.

I wanted to color with my Copic’s for practice.  I need to color more often. I want to master this skill.

 

This was my first card but I didn’t like how the sentiment “little sister” turned out but I wanted to share it with you.

Plus the belly is blue and not pink.

Love you little sister

What do you think?  Let me know!

The Joy is in the Journey

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with Papertrey Ink’s Make it Monday #171: Pop Up Die Cuts, AAA Cards Game #10 Watercolor techniques and Virginia’s View Challenge #5

I’m so excited about this weeks challenges because they combine my two favorite things.  Water-coloring and my all time favorite die, Life is Beautiful Butterfly die.

AAAcardGame10

Yayyyyy, I get to use Watercolors for this challenge!!

MIM 171 Pop Up Die Cuts

Besty Veldman showed everyone how to use our dies to create partial cuts!!

V. V. Challenge #5 (2)

Die Cut, perfect!

Take a look at my card:

Joy in the Journey3

Joy in the Jouney4

I created a card like this in the past, when I was taking my Online Card Class on Water-coloring.  It was fun so I decided to do it again with different colors, die, and sentiment.  You can see my original card here.

To create the watercolor dots, I used a new pencil eraser to transfer the ink from the pad to the paper.

Then I die cut the butterfly over the dots.  I only placed the cutting plates over the wing section of the butterfly.  That way the body of the butterfly will stay in tack.

I stamped the sentiment and added some heart enamel dots.

Can you say pretty!!!  I can!!!  Creating this card was very easy and everyone should try water-coloring and partial die cutting.

So what do you think?  Please leave a comment letting me know if you like my card creation today.
