Colour Me...! Subtle

Whisper White, Marina Mist, Sahara Sand and So Saffron are the colors for the challenge at Colour Me...! blog this time. Below is my card. The little boy image is from Lili of the Valley. I have colored him 3 times this weekend. I just love him soooo much! I am sorry, I am not sure where the sentiment stamp came from as it is a loose rubber stamp in a little plastic baggy all by itself. There is no company name anywhere on it. But it expresses exactly how I feel when I am fishing or most times when I am creating and things just don't seem to be working as I had planned.

Happy as a bird

Today I'll be as happy as a bird with a french fry. Unity SOTW.
This card was created for the Tuesday Morning Challenge. I started off the a piece of watercolor paper. Then I spritzed it with Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain in Peacock Feathers. I got a little heavy handed, but once it was dry I loved the effect. I then wrapped a piece of yellow and clear dotted washi tape around one end. Then cut and placed a piece of pink satin ribbon over that. Then I stamped my Unity stamp on whisper white cs. I colored with my Prisma watercolor pencils. I die cut using SU! Framelits dies. Added a little fuzzy ball and bead charm and stamped the sentiment. Matted that onto a piece of Chartreuse cs. Called this one down!

Happy Bird-day

Today's card was created with the Craft Your Passion challenge #251 in mind -- Anything Goes.

I recently purchased the chalk board cs from SU! and the 3 chalk ink pads that coordinate. I stamped the Tiered Birdcage from Stampendous! with the Yellow Citrus chalk ink. Then I heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Added a jeweled flower from Jodie Lee Designs at Prima and a little banner from October Afternoon's Cakewalk Little Flyers. I matted the chalk board cs on a piece of craft cs then onto a piece of Coastal Cabana then onto my tangerine card base. With some white craft ink I smudged with a dauber just to give it that chalk smudged look. The sentiment is handwritten.

Hope you like my card. If you want to play along with the challenge you can jump over to the blog from HERE.

Green Monochromatic

Found this beauty created by Marion Vagg on Pinterest. So then I created this.

What a beautifully fun, creative and simple technique. 
Here's how I did it!
I Stamped the lovely Fancy Flower from Chocolate Baroque in Versa Mark. Heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then using Copic marker #G07 Nile Green I flicked in the areas where I thought it would be darker. Then I stamped the butterfly from SU! set Nature Walk and added the dark green. I matted my image on SU! Whisper White cs. Then I mounted a piece of the same lime green cs to a matte of SU! Whisper White and ran it through my Big Shot inside the Spring Flowers ef from SU! A little bit of ribbon and bling from Making Memories and all that's left is to stamp Happy Birthday inside and this one is D-O-N-E!

Hope you enjoyed this card. I thank Marion Vagg for her inspiration on Pinterest.

Unda da sea

This card was created using a varied array of supplies.
I started with SU! Whisper White cs. Using a dauber I applied TSUKINEKO pigment inks -- Toffee, Imperial Purple, Deep Lagoon and Spanish Moss. Then placing a few different stencils in the bottom right hand corner I applied Imperial Purple and Blue Lagoon. Then with Staz-On Black I stamped Textures Water Droplets (CM-T3) from Designs by Ryn. I added white gel pen to highlight the droplets. I used a stencil from Layers of Color Natural Flourish and daubed on Spanish Moss.
Then on another piece of cs I stamped the little seahorse from Pink Paislee's Nantucket stamp set. With my daubers I rubbed on the TSUKINEKO inks. Then I took my Stickles and added some glitz. Lastly I added some rhinestones and call it done. Hope you like my little trip to the ocean. It's been mighty chilly here in North Central Texas for the past week. I was just envisioning some warmer temps.

Designs by Ryn has a challenge going on right now. So if you want to play along just click HERE and it will take you to the challenge.

Have a blessed day!

Play Day

Just another play day with my gal pals; Deb and Lorna. 
We all take turns designing a card. The first card is designed by Deb. We LOVE birds!!!
I had some issues with this one as I tip toed over the stamp with markers and I didn't get very good coverage. My stamped image was spotty at best. So I then had to go in and add color and lines. 
In the end I was pleased with the way it turned out.

This card is a CAS I CASED from Leah's Cards. I watched her video and copied her card.
 This one is another card designed by Deb. I love this new stamp from Stampin' Up! Right now the name escapes me. But I really enjoyed coloring the flowers. If you have any questions about this stamp you can contact Deb at . Deb is my Stampin' Up! demonstrator.
We had a really fun day. I am truly blessed to have these two ladies in my life. I love them so much.

Have a great day.

It's a new technique for me.  Below is the card I made with my Bokeh piece. 
In photography, bokeh (Originally /ˈboʊkɛ/, /ˈboʊkeɪ/ BOH-kay — also sometimes pronounced as /ˈboʊkə/ BOH-kə, Japanese: [boke]) is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. Bokeh has been defined as "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light"

I started my project by cutting watercolor paper to 4.25" x 5.5". Then using my Aqua painter I saturated the paper. Then using an acrylic block I dropped 3 drops of Re-inker inks in Calypso ?Coral, Poopl Party and Wisteria Wonder onto the block. Then I simply dipped the tip of my aqua painter into a color. Then moving over to my paper, I gently squeezed some ink onto the wet paper. Cleaned the brush and chief another color then repeated this process until the paper was completely covered with color.

When the piece was completely dry;  
Here's where the light effect comes in. I used a circle stencil and daubed white in various circles, overlapping a few. 
I trimmed it to desired size, stamped my sentiment and added pearls.
Then I stamped the inside. 
All done!

If you are interested in the Bokeh technique, go to YouTube and search Bokeh Sharon Armstrong. I watched several different videos. But Sharon's explanation and demo worked best for me.

Using my Christmas Presents

Hi! Happy New Year's Eve!!!

I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year.

Now to my Christmas presents. 
Below is a card I made using a book my hubs gave me for Christmas. The book is titled Paper Pop Up by Dorothy Wood. There are 40 dynamic designs in this book. I chose to make the Mother's Day Magic card. Simply because it was something new to me. Outside sort of plane and simple (not the design in the book).

Inside a POP OUT vase for some pretty little paper flowers!

Following the pattern in the book, I traced and cut out the vase for the flowers, away from the green decorative cs. I cut the vase into the light pink cs and pushed it through the opening in the green cs. (You can see a little shadow from the flowers I glued into the vase.) I added Ranger liquid pearls to the vase to dress it up a little. 

Hope you like it.

Christmas is passed

I sure hope this Christmas was a blessing for you. Mine truly was. We got to spend the holidays with our family. It was so wonderful. We had such a great visit with my parents, sister and our children and grandson. Time flew by of course. But we made the best of it.

My hubs gave me a Light Pad for Christmas. Here I used a deep purple cardstock and some Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing Powder in Desert Moon Turquoise. I love Lindy's eb powders because they all have an iridescence to them. The photo was taken using my Light Pad. It was all totally an experiment. BUT, I love it!

What did you get for Christmas? Was there 1 special gift that you like most? Or were they each a great gift? 

Thanks for peeping in today. 

I wish you a very Happy New Year 2015! 
May we all be blessed with health, wealth and happiness!

Hello! Yes I am finally back. It's been quite some time but I am happy to say, my leg is healing up very nicely. Doctor seems more than pleased, so, so am I!

Below is a card my youngest asked me to make for her to send to a pen pal in Bulgaria. They play an online game and chat together. They both like penguines and she is a Thor fan and he is a Batman fan. So to some of you this card will make absolutely no sense. To them it will be perfect. She's coming by today to pick it up. I wanted to get it posted before she comes. That's why I didn't get the photos all tidied up before posting. 
The sentiment reads: save santa a naughty.
 I printed 4 of the superhero images and cut pieces for a 3-d effect. The sentiment reads : wishes for a Christmas that's Super!
I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving. Ours was very nice. My sister came and brought my parents and all of their dogs. I only got a picture of my sister's Rat Terriers, Gracie and George.

Now to get to my Christmas card list.

Please take time to enjoy the season that is upon us. Don't get caught up in the hustle and the bustle of it all. Remember, Jesus is the reason for the season.
