I had the idea of creating a 3D seaside village for my aunt\’s birthday. She loves watercoloring so that is the technique I chose. I love this beautiful Art Impressions Shoppes stamp set.
I started by stamping the two shoppes with grey ink on Ranger Watercolor paper. Then I used my new watercolors to bring my scene to life. Next, I took another panel of watercolor paper and created my background. After the shop images were dry, I fussy-cut and used foam tape to adhere to the background panel. Last, I stamped the sentiment (WPlus9 – Doodle Buds) in the sky area.
I am happy with the card and hope Aunt Nancy will like it.

Allsorts \”Favorite\” Challenge. Two favorites on this card: the idyllic shoppes stamps and the sentiment stamp.

Thanks for stopping by,
This card definitely has a lot going on:
- I started by stamping the Doodle Buds (by WPlus9) images, then colored with Copic Markers (V17, RV00, RV02, RV04, RV09, Y17, YG67, YG25) and finally fussy cut.
- Next I used a 2 1/2\” punch to cut out a circle near the top of some Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid plaid paper. I wanted to distress it a bit so I used some Hero Arts Moss Ink around the edges and circle.
- I put some craft foam on the back of the Perfectly Plaid panel and adhered it to a lighter green card. Next I used foam tape to add the fussy cut floral pieces.
- The sentiment is heat embossed on black card stock.
- I finished off by adding some Wink of Stella (which didn\’t photograph well) and some sequins (SSS All Hallows Eve).
I finally purchased a Gemini Junior die cut machine and I am having so much fun! I am not sure why I waited so long! Previously, I fussy cut everything. Doodle Buds by WPlus9 is one of my all time favorite stamp sets so it was in my first “die” order.
I started by stamping, coloring and die cutting three blooms. I added some white accents with a gel pen. I then used a new stamp for the ground, the stripes from Pink & Main’s pattern maker set. I used Altenew’s Green Apple ink. This is my first time using this stamp but I really like how it simulated grassy ground. Next I stamped the stems and leaves for the three floral images and colored. Then I cut the card using the largest stitched rectangle die (from My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax set 2) and added the die cut blooms.

Pile It On February Pink Challenge Always fun to enter!
I really enjoyed making this happy little card and I am so pleased you stopped by to see it!
I wanted to try a girly card in slightly non-traditional colors, in this case, oranges and lime greens. I came up with the idea of a confetti background forming a square with some pattern stamping for the focal point. I used WPlus9 Doodle Buds, Sunny Studio Tropical Paradise and SSS Beautiful Ride floral stamps. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Year 2 Birthday Turtle.
I colored the images in with Copics and then used the markers to make the confetti background. I then embellished with tiny gem stones on four of the flowers.
I hope you will stop by Watercooler Wednesdays Challenge to see what the other artists have created. This week is Feminine Anything Goes which is such a fun prompt. We would love to see your creation!

In June, I won the AAA 4th Birthday Challenge with my Yappy Birthday submission. I won a 30 pound gift card to Visible Images! AAA also asked me to be a guest designer for today\’s Challenge: AAA Cards Over The Rainbow Challenge. I was so excited that I created two different cards and liked this one the best, so I submitted it to the Challenge.
The Doodle Buds Stamp Set by WPlus9 is a favorite and I thought it would be fun to ink blend the Rainbow. I stamped the images and colored/blended with my Copic markers.
I also gave this card to my card making friend, Chris.
