WWC220 – Kath\’s "All About Occasions" Challenge

Happy Wednesday and thank you for stopping by.  It is All About Occasions on the Watercooler Website and Kath is our hostess this week.
Distress Ink:  wilted violet, salty ocean, twisted citron, squeezed lemonade, carved pumpkin

This is the Mother\’s Day card I made for my mother-in-law.  I embossed the  blooms and leaves from Create a Smile\’s In Bloom.  I love these large bold flowers!  Then I used distress ink (wilted violet, salty ocean, twisted citron, squeezed lemonade, carved pumpkin) on an ink blender to color each image.  I buffed and let dry. Finally, I fussy cut each image.  I really need to order the die cuts for this much used set.

Next, I stamped a background using SSS\’s Brush Stroke Messages.  I adhered the flowers and leaves using foam tape for dimension.  Last I popped on the sentiment and added SSS sequins  and Pretty Pink Posh jewels.

I am joining Simon Says Stamp\’s Wednesday \”For a Special Lady\” Challenge

Thanks for stopping by!

Bright Colorful Pattern Stamping

I have a fondness for pattern stamping, and when I received a new stamp set for Christmas, I thought this brightly colored layout would work well.  I used my new Inkblot Shop This & That stamp set along with images from SSS Hello Friends and Photoplay Thinking of You.

I started by stamping the sentiment (Ranger Letter It Birthday) with Gina K Amalgam on XPress It paper.  I then worked out from the sentiment and stamped the larger images first. Next I went in and filled in with the smaller details.  I colored with Copic markers and added three black sequins.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Addicted to Stamps Anything Goes Challenge

The Twisted Challenge  This is my first time to enter a Twisted Challenge challenge.

  • Something Old:  my beloved Copic markers
  • Something New:  my new sentiment stamp set from Ranger.  I love the big flowing script!
  • Something Gifted:  I received the cute Ink Blot Shop stamp set for Christmas last month.
  • Something Blue:  Blue is my favorite color so I\’ve colored some flowers and blueberries blue.

WWC202 – Dawn\’s Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

I made my youngest daughter an assortment of cards as a Christmas gift.  Megan is a cute blond who owns her own marketing company so I thought this image was perfect.
Visible Image Live in the Moment
The stamp set is Clover by Rubbernecker.  The sentiment is Visible Image\’s Live in the Moment which was fun to use as I won it as a prize in a challenge this summer.  Link to Yappy Birthday card

I colored Clover with Copic markers and then added three pearlescent sequins for a little interest and shine.

My card is among the artist cards for Dawn\’s Watercooler Wednesday Feminine Anything Goes Challenge.  Come take a peek and play along.

Thanks for stopping by!
