Water Color Birthday Card 092814

Today I'm again participating in Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. They did't have a specific theme but said did we could use Hero Art stamps if we had them. So here is a card I made for one of my nieces.

I used this wonderful background stamp on a piece of water color paper. Stamping it with a light brown pigment ink and heat embossing it. Then used my distress ink mini stamp pads and brush to color it. I then stamped a piece of vellum with another stamp from Hero Arts sentiment stamp. I wrapped it around and then adhered it to a card base. 

That's all for today. I hope you enjoyed :)

Black Outline Cards 091614

Hello again! I have found new inspiration and have pushed myself to make time to make cards and I'm really enjoying it. This week again I'm participating in Simon Says Stamp's challenge blog. This time it was geared on creating our own background. The last card is really the one inspired by that challenge.

For this first card I stamped a background Hero Arts' Four Leaf Grid stamp with versamark ink, used clear embossing powder and used the resist technic to apply color using a bird stencil from Mudd Podge. I then used the "you" die cut and sentiment set from SSS for my sentiment. 

This second card I used a left over strip of water color paper that I had water colored with distressed ink pads from Ranger. I embellished it with a resist canvas sticker from Recollections that I also water colored. I then stamped the sentiment using another SSS stamp set and finished it by adding some pearls that I had colored black with my Prismacolor alcohol markers.

For my last card today I used the same Hero Art's background stamp as the first card and inked it with 5 distressed ink pads. I then sprits it with water and stamped a piece of water color paper to create my background. I then used my Lifestyle Crafts dies to cut the window and a frame with black card stock. I decided to keep the stamping simple and used a stamp set from The Stamps of Life. All three cards used strips of black card stock instead of layering a full piece of black cards stock. 

Well, that's all for now. I hope you enjoyed. I know I enjoyed making them very much.

Set of 4 Cards 090914

Hello, I know it's been a while. Work has been busy and I'm finally allowing myself a little time to comeback to do a little post.

Today, I'm participating Simon Says Stamp challenge blog. This week's challenge is about stamping. Here is my contribution.

This is a set of cards I made. I picked four bright colors and stamped this wonderful rose stamp I have from MultiCraft Imports and then picked four sentiments from various companies and stamped them in black on a strip of velum. 

I hope you enjoyed and see you next time.
