Sunflower Thanks

Sunflower Thanks



This card was super easy to create and I think it looks great!

I used the Hello Sunflower stamp set from Strawberry Jude Stamps. I stamped it in the corner of a watercolor panel. Then I used yellow and painted all around the image and then used just water to pull the paint out to cover the panel to get a gradient effect.

After it dried I added a thank you die cut and some clear raindrops.

Thank you for stopping by!

Hope Your Birthday Is A SMASH!

Hope Your Birthday Is A SMASH!


I used the Year Seven Lawn Fawn stamp for this cute birthday card. 

I started with created a base panel using watercolor paper. I added my sentiment first. . . I followed the sentiment that came with the set but for the last word I used Quinns ABC's. I did this so that I could color the last word and really get it to stand out! 

I added three sections of color to create the background and colored in my letters using watercolors. I chose these colors because they kinda make more of a masculine card and I have a hard time doing those! 

I stamped my image with Copic friendly ink and colored them using Copics. I used the matching die to cut them out and then adhered them right to my base panel.

I really like how this card turned out. . . It was pretty easy to create, in fact I made 10 for a card swap!

I stamped my image on my white panel and colored it with prisma colored pencils and gamsol and added some glossy accents to the frosting on the cake. I used Lawn Fawn paper in a grey plaid design for my base panel then added a few pink and white glitter enamel dots to finish off the card.

Thanks Card - Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers - Halo Watercolor Background

Thanks



I was perusing YouTube and came across this video by Kathy from the Daily Marker and her super cute halo water coloring. . . .  I was instantly inspired so decided to do a card of my own!

I started by cutting my base panel out of some Canson Watercolor paper. I used the Be Still Peonies from Strawberry Jude Stamps for my image. I started by masking of my stamp and stamping part of the smaller stamp, layered the smaller stamp on top of that and then added the large stamp to the side. I don't do a lot of masking with my stamping so I was really glad that this turned out as it did. 

I used my Zig clean color real brush markers and a water brush to color the image first. Then I created the halo effect. . . . my image was kinda of all in one place so I faded the color out instead of filling in my whole card. 

For my sentiment I used a die from Create a Smile. . . It is one of my favorites. I also die cut it out of watercolor paper and used the same marker that I used for my halo so that it would match perfectly. I did a water wash over it so that it wouldn't be to dark. 

I added Wink of Stella to the flowers and to my sentiment and finished the card with a few sequins.

I love how this card turned out, I absolutely love it!
