NEW poppystamps Peony Bouquet Thinking of You Card…

Hi everyone!  Switching gears from cute to floral!  I love this new clear stamp set from poppystamps!  So pretty gold embossed and watercolored with Karin Markers, water and a paintbrush.

I stamped the poppystamps Picnic Plaid clear stamp using the Tim Holtz Travel Stamp Platform on Hobby Lobby Masters Touch watercolor card.  I love using this stamp platform for big stamps because I can leave the stamp on the lid then take just the lid/stamp to the sink to wash it after stamping!  So easy to clean up that way.

I stamped the plaid with Taylored Expressions Premium Dye Ink, first in Pink Champagne and then to get it a little pinker, I inked and stamped it again with Cupcake.  I was trying to match the Karin markers I used for watercoloring.

I heat embossed the image and sentiment with gold embossing powder. Then started coloring!

My Karin Markers (from Poland) were a gift from an amazing, dear, friend back in March. (the dreaded birthday was awesome this year) It looks like Simon Says Stamp is bringing them in but nothing in stock yet.  To see my other card I colored with them, select my Karin Markers category over on the right.  You can use any watercolors to color stamp images though and I plan to do some more with this beautiful image!

Karin Markers are Brush Pens and beautiful for Modern Brush Calligraphy!  I’ve been practicing on that when I sit down at night… pretty fun!  I’ve always enjoyed lettering but have only pursued it a couple times and never kept up with it.  Here’s hoping I do better this time.  It’s fun to do with the grandkids also.

ok – well, I’ll wrap this up and say, thanks for coming over! Hope you feel like coloring now!  I need to keep coloring/practicing! Don’t look at my coloring to close! lol

ttul,

Two Memory Box Perched Bird Die Cards…

Hi everyone…so many times we need a thinking of you card…when words aren’t enough, maybe a simple thinking of you card will help. Tragedy comes to everyone and when you can’t be there, a card is something tangible we can do.

This card is so CAS (clean and simple), truly lives up to the name and for once didn’t take any time to make!

I doubt that it even needs any explanation!  I did use a little foam mounting tape under the bird. The white die cut is glued directly to the A2 card base.

I stamped Thinking of You from the poppystamps Picnic Plaid clear stamp set in the MISTI with Archival black ink.  I’ll link everything up at the bottom of the post.

 

Then I die cut the Perched Bird again from Mixed Media card and watercolored it with Zig Real Brush Pens. The frame from the Splendid Rose Frame the same.

The sentiment this time is from the Memory Box Big and Little Words clear stamp set, stamped in the MISTI with Archival black ink.

I added some twine to doll it up a bit…

See that blue-ish vase in the picture?  My daughter was going to toss it!  I love it! lol  It’s ceramic…perfect picture prop for this card! lol

Thank you for stopping by today. Happy July!

Memory Box Small Fringed Peony, Scribble Leafy Branch Thank You Card…

HELLO!!!  Bright card today! No sunshine here today except on this card! lol

I tried using a Gel Plate for the Smooshed Background on this card.  I put drops of Distress Ink refills on the plate, spritzed it with water and then laid the piece of watercolor paper in it and smooshed!  Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint and Peacock Feathers are the colors I used.  Added spatters with the extra ink.

I die cut the NEW Memory Box Small Fringed Peony from three Bazzill Card Shoppe Cardstock colors and pieced them into a white cut. Then I die cut two more of just the white and glued them on top and liked it better.

I went in with some color pencils for some shadows on the flower petals.  Just enough colorbook therapy to make me happy!

I die cut the new Memory Box Scribble Leafy Branch Background in Bazzill Cardshoppe cardstock and the Scribble Leafy Branch Outline in White cardstock. Layered and glued them together.

I stamped and embossed the images from the new Memory Box Big and Little Words clear stamp set.  I used the MISTI and Gold Embossing Powder.

I added three Doodlebug pearls…sequins might’ve been fun too!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope your Summer is off to a great start!  Happy papercrafting!

Simon Says Stamp Sketched Flowers Card…

Hi everyone!  A floral card with a big thanks to share with you today.

I stamped this beautiful floral image from SSS Sketched Flowers clear stamp set with Archival Black ink in the MISTI on watercolor paper.

I used the most amazing markers to watercolor with!  Have you heard of the Karin Markers?  They’re from Poland. Just WOW! So cool! I was so surprised and delighted when the pkg arrived at my front door!  A birthday present for me?!  YES!  From an awesome friend!!!  😀 Best Birthday ever!!!  😀

A story I made on Instagram about them… HERE.

They are awesome markers for lettering too.  I’m still working on that… practice, practice!

I spattered and after everything was dry, I die cut the word ‘thanks’ from Altenew’s lower case alphabet set right out of the colored floral piece!  :O

That took a couple weeks for me to get up the nerve! lol  No big deal after all. haha whew!


I added mounting tape to the back of each of the letters and placed them back in after I backed the piece with black cardstock.

I’ve seen a lot of cardmakers do this and have always loved it.  So glad I finally did it!  The simple ‘with heartfelt’ is from a Memory Box clear stamp set.

Links below to what I used…

THANK you so much for stopping by and supporting my cardmaking and blogging!  I appreciate it so much!  YES, with heartfelt thanks! Have a beautiful day!  It cooled off here and I even opened the windows because the humidity is low…so unusual!  So happy about it! lol

poppystamps Poinsettia Delights and Outline Joy Card…

Hi everyone! I wish that was my truck IRL!  So cute…there’s a Christmas tree in the bed. I found that at Menards last year in their Christmas scene decoration section of the store.

The card!  This is one of the poinsettia cards that I told you last week that I had to get finished!  One more to go!  Well probably more than one but another one that is already started.

I stamped the images from this NEW poppystamps Poinsettia Delights stamp set and heat embossed them with white powder on Kraft cardstock.  Then I watercolored them with Tombow Dual Brush markers and Stampin Up’s Real Red Marker.

I die cut the NEW poppystamps Joy Outline die in woodgrain paper and black cardstock, then inked the edges of both with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I tied on this cotton cord… it’s from the grocery store!  It was so fun to buy something for stamping at the grocery store! lol

I roughed up the edges of the pattern papers with the Tim Holtz Distresser tool, then inked around with Gathered Twigs too… love that color!

This ended up being an A7 size card.  5 inches x 7 inches.

Linking to some challenges…

Hello Bluebird Birthday Card…

 

Hi everyone…it’s been a fun Summer with our kids and g-kids. This is the card I made for Cedryk who turned six in July.  He loves to fish with his dad and gpa and loves his kitties and dog and everything on wheels! lol

I had so much fun with this… I die cut the Pond Builder Set in Strathmore 400 BEST coldpress watercolor paper and watercolored the pieces with Gansai Tambi 36 color wc set.  I mixed color right on my Tonic craft mat and then spattered on the extra with my favorite brush for spattering… I’ll link it up below… it’s the round #4 in the set.

I stamped the colored images on Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock, die cut them, then colored them with Copic Sketch markers. TIP: I always die cut before I color… if you need something larger to hold on to, use a temporary adhesive and stick the cut to a larger piece of paper or cardstock.

Isn’t he just the cutest and that kitty!!!

 

It was hard to narrow down the photos for this one…this scene just made me photo happy! lol

I hope it makes you smile too!  We were having some super hot and humid days but wow, now it won’t stop raining and being humid.  Yep, I’m from Iowa, we’re always talkin’ ’bout the weather!  I don’t like to go places in the rain people! lol  I came up the front stairway last night and bam… the roof is leaking. ugh.  Water is supposed to stay outside and in ponds you know!  So I’m feeling whiny baby.  sigh

Thank goodness for cute cards!

Thanks for stopping by! Take care and see you soon…bring on the snow! haha

Waffle Flower Sandy Toes, Neat and Tangled Hello Summer Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  Switching it up completely today with a Summer birthday card.  When I saw this Waffle Flower Sandy Toes stamp set I HAD to have it cuz it’s so much like our kids boating and swimming.  Then I saw Channin’s video using this set and I was thrilled with her card and wanted to sit down and make it right away! I didn’t have the paints she used at the time and used Oxide inks instead.  Excuse to go shopping, which I did, but then life happened and I just finally finished this up with the sentiments and gluing it together yesterday. Thank you so much Channin!

How triumphant this flippin’ flip flop guy is that it’s Summer!  (I don’t like hot and humid, so just send me pictures of the fun, thank you! lol)

I painted the characters with Zig Clean Color Brush markers on watercolor paper.  Contrary to most that love painting on Bristol with these,  I prefer coldpress watercolor paper, figures huh. lol

Such fun… this card just makes a person celebrate living, you know!  I’m trying to learn…Summer is a state of mind. haha hehe

This is an A2 size card and will be a very belated birthday card.

Linking up below to what I used and thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of this fleeting Summer!  I feel like the year is dashing by at warp speed, whatever that is!  Where’s the time to feel the sand between your toes, I gotta make cards! haha
