Shining Star

A cute little card today made using the Little Twinkle Stamp Set.

I decided to play along with the Global Design Project

I started with a card base using Night of Navy Cardstock.  I adhered a panel from the Twinkle, Twinkle DSP  cut 5-1/4 x 4. I then cut another panel from the Twinkle, Twinkle DSP 3-3/4 x 3-3/4 and popped it on top of the first DSP mat.  Before I popped the 3 -3/4 x 3-3/4 mat, I added three squares cut 1-1/2 x 1-1/2. These were popped onto the 3-3/4 mat.  I decorated each square using designs cut from a piece of the Twinkle, Twinkle DSP. These designed were adhered to the 1-1/2 squares.  I used a few of the Twinkle Adhesive Backed Sequins on each square.

I wrapped a length of the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the card and adhered it on the back with tape.  I then wrapped a length of the Petal Pink Metallic Ribbon over the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon. I made a small bow and attached it with a glue dot.

   The inside sentiment is also from the Little Twinkle Stamp Set.  I stamped a sentiment on each panel of the card.

That’s it for today.  Hope you enjoy! Visit again.

Red Tide At Sunset

Red Tide At Sunset

This is a cute little card, I think.  I like the way this little watercolor piece turned out.  I started out watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper with Merry Merlot, Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana and Pool Party.  I had no idea out it would turn out.  The first piece was not quite what I was wanting, so I tried again.  This time I cut a smaller piece and watercolored it.  After watercoloring about 3/4th of the piece, I thought “Oh that looks like a sunset at the beach with the Red Tide coming into shore.

I used the 2 inch layering square framelits to cut the piece from the Iarger piece I had watercolored.  I used a black Stampin Write Marker to draw the two birds. 

I cut a panel 4 x 5-1/4 from Whisper White cardstock and embossed using the Seaside TIEF.  I popped this on the Whisper White card base using Stampin Dimensionals.  I then popped the watercolored pieced onto the embossed panel.  The thanks greeting on the from is from the Thankful Thoughts Stamp Set.  I stamped it using Merry Merlot Stampin Pad on a scrap of the piece I had watercolored.  I drew around the stamp that the word Thanks was on and fussy cut it.  I popped it below the watercolor square.

The inside sentiment is also from the Thankful Thoughts Stamp Set. I probably should have watercolored then stamped, so since I didn’t I used my heat tool to dry the sentiment I had stamped in Black Memento Ink. I sponged the colors around the sentiment and then used an Aqua Painter to spread the ink around very carefully, so I would not mess up the sentiment.  I discovered that was a great way to watercolor, sponge the color on dry and then use water.

These are the Challenges I am playing with today:  Inkspire_me CHALLENGE #358 and CAS ON FRIDAY

That’s it for today. Visit again, there will be more another day.

Did you make it this far, if so have a blessed day and stay cool, it’s hot out there!

 

Hello- Love What You Do!

Hello- Love What You Do!

Welcome! Happy Monday,

I tried a new technique for me, I wanted to see how it looked and how it would turn out. I ended up being pleased with the results. I drew inspiration for today’s card from the Global Design Project .  I also found inspiration from WWC177-Charlotte’s Feminine “Anything Goes” Challenge.


The card base is Fresh Fig.  I have double matted using Mint Macaron and Grapefruit Grove. For the art piece I cut a piece of watercolor paper 3 x 3-3/4.  I use a stamping block ( you can see it in the picture above). I pressed it lightly on the Mint Macaron stamp pad and then stamped on the watercolor paper.  I stamped, then stamped again without re-inking. The lines on the stamping block gave even more dimension to the piece.  

I then stamp using Memento Black Ink and the Love What You Do Stamp Set to stamp the flowers on the Mint Macaron piece.  I colored the flowers using Grapefruit Grove Stampin Pad and a Blender Pen.The flowers appear to have tiny dots all through them and this is from stamping on the Mint Macaron background. I wrapped three strands of the Nature’s Twine around the card and tied a knot.

I did not put a sentiment inside, just stamped the flowers from the Love What You Do Stamp Set and colored. I left it blank except the flowers so a note could be written.

That’s all for today.  Hope you enjoyed seeing my card.

Garden Impressions/Delightful Daisy

Garden Impressions/Delightful Daisy

I am playing with two challenges today.  Color Throwdown ctd500 and  Freshly Made Sketches

 

 

Whisper White card base with a Whisper White mat.  Two corners are matted with a panel of the Garden Impressions DSP.

The art piece is stamped using the Delightful Daisy Stamp Set between the two  corners that are matted with the Garden Impression DSP. I stamped with Memento Black Ink and colored using So Saffron and Blushing Bride Stampin Inks and a Blender Pen.

The greeting on the front is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (retired).

I also matted the corners of the inside panel with the Garden Impressions DSP. The sentiment is from Verve, I believe.

 

Now that’s it for today.  Hope you enjoyed my simple and easy card.  Visit Again.
