Sparkle and Shine

Now take a look at my card:

From my garden (YNS)

I had so much fun watercoloring this Dahlias from WPlus 9 Beautiful Bouquets: Dahlias stamp set.

I used these amazing Daniel Smith dots:

Daniel Dots

Those small dots packs a big punch.  This was the first time I used them and I like them.  If I wanted to purchase any colors I have a true sample to guide me.

Here is how I created this card:

I used the Mini Misti to stamp the image and sentiment on Tim Holtz Watercolor papers using Ranger Archival Black Ink.

Then I used the watercolor dots to color the image in.

Nice and easy.

What do you think?  I would love to hear from you.

Take a look at my card:

Happy Day (SS)

I was so unsure what I was going to create for this challenge.  Then my new stamp set from Darkroom Door Fine Flowers arrived and I had to try it out.

I love this whimsical flower and thought it would be perfect for this challenge.

To create this card, all I did was score the top of the card front randomly. Then I stamped the flower image using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink. After that I colored the flowers using Copic V15, V06, V09 and Y19. Once that was completed, I used Concord and 9th Sophisticated Script stamp set to stamp the sentiment.

What do you think?

Now take a look at my card:

Bunny felt (SSS)

I have to admit I was stuck when I saw the inspiration photo.  I don’t have any wreath stamps or dies.  The colors aren’t my favorite either.  What do I do?

This weekend my mother taught my daughter and nieces how to stitch and I remembered I had the Simon Says Stamp Stitch die, and the bunny at that. So I went with that.  I’ve never used any type of stitching on my cards.  So this was a bit fun.

The basket was created with felt but bunny, his carrot and flowers were created with paper (I didn’t have felt in those color, LOL)

Nice and some what easy!!

Sparkle and Shine Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Sparkle and Shine Challenge!!!  How exciting is this!!! 

Since its the 15th of the month, its time for our new challenge!!!

Here is the inspiration photo that guided us this time around:

February 15_2016

Now take a look at my take on this photo:

You color my world

I had so much fun creating this card.  I received some new craft goodies and couldn’t wait to give them a try.

Check out these cute Tombow Yo-i Crayons.  Oh, they tickle me with cuteness.

IMG_8482

These crayons are water-soluble and super easy to use.  They move across the paper with easy.  They can be used on any surface.

Here is how I created this card:

I cut a piece of Arches Cold Press Watercolor paper to 4.25 by 5.50.

Then I embossed the watercolor panel with Stampin’ Up! Chevron Textured Embossing Folder.

After that, I used the Tombow Yo-i Crayons and water to add color to the pattern on the paper.

Put the panel to the side and worked on my sentiment from WPlus 9 Color My World Stamp Set.  I love this stamp set.  It is fun and playful.  It goes perfect with my Crayons.

My color palette (SSS)

These colors moved across the cutting board with easy.  The colors were super vibrant as well.

Once I was finished with the sentiment.  I used a circle die to cut out the sentiment and a piece a Recollections Heavyweight Black Cardstock.

I adhered them together with Tombow Extreme Adhesive.

I added them to the card front with 3M Foam Tape.

To finish the card off, I add some Your Next Stamp Black Gumdrops for my bling.

Nice and easy!

 

That fun!!

Be Mine Milk Cartoon

Here is how I created these mini milk cartoons for my daughter’s class:

  1. I used retired Stampin’ Up! Bigz L Mini Milk Carton to cut out 3 milk cartons.
  2. Then I put the cartons together with Tombow Extreme Adhesive.
  3. After that I added some random Love Washi Tape around the boxes.
  4. Then I added some crystal hearts from Michael’s for my bling onto all of the boxes.
  5. I used My Favorite Things Pierced Heat STAX to cut out three small hearts.
  6. I stamped Right At Home Kiss Kiss sentiment onto the hearts.
  7. I adhered the hearts with some Micheal’s clothes pins.

They are filled with candy for her classmates.  I hope they love these too.
