Dies R Us Challenge #67 - Think Spring!


This is my first time to enter the Dies R Us challenges!  I really love using dies on my cards and projects.

The Dies R Us challenge theme is Think Spring.  For my card I used PoppyStamps Weeping Willow Tree die, CheeryLynn Exotic Butterfly Small die, and Impression Obsession grass die (actually, I think it is the IO sea grass die, but it is grass nonetheless, and it looks like it needs to have a lawnmower taken to it!  LOL)

I created the background by sponging distress inks onto the white cardbase before adhering the Willow tree die cut.  I used Chameleon pens to give the tree leaves a little color.

The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Winter Blues? Let's Take a Vacation!


It's my turn to host the challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters.

I chose the theme ... Winter Blues?  Let's Take a Vacation!  Our next stop is anything destination or travel related!

For my card, my destination is the beach!  I used the beach image from the CTMH Perfect Day stamp set.  I first created the background by using distress inks and dabbing the colors onto an acrylic block then spritzing with water before stamping it down onto my watercolor paper.  Let it dry and then stamped the image and colored the image using Chameleon pens.  The die cuts are from Lil Inker Stitched rectangle dies.

We hope you'll share your vacation destination or travel related creations with us at The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge.  You can find the challenge HERE.

Friends of Flourishes Challenge - Watercolor


Gloria challenged the Friends of Flourishes design team to use watercolor on our creations this week.

For my card, I used the Camellia Love stamp set.  I stamped the larger flower onto watercolor paper and used Tombow markers and a wink of stella clear pen to color the image (there is lots of sparkle that the picture doesn't show!).  The smaller stamps were also stamped onto watercolor paper and colored using the Tomow markers and a waterbrush.  I fussy cut the small flowers and grouped them around two die cut leaves.  The cardbase is pink cardstock from Flourisheslc.
