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!

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!

Hit The Open Road

Hit The Open Road




I started this card by die cutting my two base panels.



I used blue and grey distress ink to do a little ink smooshing on the white panel. . . . I don't know why, I am horrible at ink smooshing!



I used Strawberry Jude Stamp sets Don't Forget to Explore: States and Don't Forget to Ride for my sentiment and decoration. I used a black Micron pen to add the dashed line.



I adhered my stamped panel to my base panel and added a few silver sequins.I think this would be a great card for someone who is moving or going on a trip. . . .

HAPPY BIRTHDAY FLAMINGO

HAPPY BIRTHDAY FLAMINGO



I used Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies for both my base panels, the base panel for this card is kind of a metallic pink paper and my second panel is from the same paper pack so it is a matte pink with the metallic stripes.

I used a scalloped circle die from Craftin' Desert Divas to die cut the white circle and used some picked raspberry and abandon coral distress ink to splatter on the edge. I used the flamingo from Strawberry Jude Stamps Stand Tall. I colored the flamingo using Prismacolor colored pencils. I added a happy birthday sentiment die from Lawn fawn and a few black matte sequins.

KEEPIN' COOL

KEEPIN' COOL



I made this card using a digi stamp from Craftin Desert Divas, Cool Summer. I uploaded it into my Silhouette Portrait, printed it and them cut it out. I colored it using copic markers and used a grey glitter pen on the glasses.

I took a piece of distress watercolor card stock and used tumbled glass for the sky portion then I used the cloud stamps from Strawberry Jude stamps Rainbows and Roses stamp set. I used a wave border die and cut a post it note and used it as a stencil to apply the salty ocean distress ink for the water. I distressed it with some water flicks and dabbed it off. After that dried I added my sentiment.  

I cut my slider track into the panel using Lawn Fawns Slid eon Over dies. I attached my rhino to a penny through the track for my sliding mechanism. I attached the panel to my card front using a double layer of foam tape so that my penny would slide freely. I finished my card by adding some enamel dots.

This little rhino is super cute and I love my background with those clouds!

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday


I started this card by die cutting two panels from the Lawn Fawn diagonal die cut panel. I flipped one over and put them together to get the lattice pattern. 

I used the stamp set Be Still Peonies from Strawberry Jude stamps for my flower. I stamped and clear embossed the image on watercolor paper and used watercolors on the image. I then fussy cut the image out and attached it the card front. 

I created the two layer banner and stamped the sentiment from SJS Rainbows and Roses. I tucked the end of the banner behind the leaf on the flower.

That's it! Pretty simple and I love how this looks!

Make Today Magical

Make Today Magical


For this card I die cut my white panel and used a cloud embossing folder.

I stamped and colored a rainbow and a few clouds from SJS Rainbows and Roses and a cute little Pegasus from SJS Unicorns and Sparkles. I used Copic markers on the Pegasus, colored pencils and gamsol on the rainbow and put some glitter stickles on the clouds. I used my silhouette to cut the images out. 

I white heat embossed the sentiment from SJS Unicorns and Sparkles. I placed it on the card and then added a rainbow of sequins to match the rainbow on the card.

This card came out just like I hoped it would!

Breathe

Breathe


I die cut a watercolor panel and used Versamark ink and pearl embossing powder on this flower image from the set Be Still Peonies from Strawberry Jude Stamps. I used watercolors to color the image. 

I cut a grey panel that matches my card base and used a LF border die to give it the scalloped edge. I used the sentiment from the SJS set and white heat embossed it, I attached it to my watercolor panel using foam tape for some dimension on my card.  

I added a few grey and pink sequins for a little sparkle.

I think this sentiment is good for anybody who would be going through 
some things and needed a little support.
