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.

Coastal Cabana, Lime, Purple

Coastal Cabana, Lime, Purple

My card will be entered in the following challenges Watercooler Wednesday Challenge 172


Paper Players Sketch PP395 is another of the challenges I am entering

 

I think it is amazing that you can take two pictures of the same card and the colors turn out so different looking.  My Coastal Cabana and Lime Green do not look like the colors they are supposed to be.  The color of the cup with the plant is supposed to be Coastal Cabana but it doesn’t look even close to the stitched circle behind the Lime Stitched circle.

The base is Whisper White cardstock with a Basic Black mat embossed with the Layering Leaves TEFI. This popped on the Whisper White card base.  The Coastal Cabana and Lime Stitched circle are popped on the Layering Leaving panel.  The twine wrapped around the art panel is from the Nature’s Twine collection of twine.  I think it is a beautiful shade of purple.

I cut the art piece from the Color Me DSP and copied it to the Lime Stitched Circle.  I colored the art piece using the Coastal Cabana and Lemon Lime Stampin Pads.   The Coastal Cabana does not look like it is that color.

I did not put an inside sentiment as I have many thank you sentiments to choose from and will choose when I send it.

Kindness Makes A Difference

Kindness Makes A Difference

I didn’t realize when I made this card for a kindness done for me that it can be for three different challenges.  After I got it made, I thought I need to make some cards for challenges.  When I went to look at what the challenges were for the week, was I  ever surprised!

Flowers, ribbon, and bird for this one.

Then there is the Viva La Verve Challenge for the week.

The Third One Tic, Tac Toe Challenge 045.  Flowers, Free, Thanks

I am truly amazed at being able to do three.  For me that is unbelievable.

I started with a card base of Tranquil Tide. Then I embossed a 5 x 3-3/4 panel of Whisper White with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder.

The Tranquil Tide mat for the Share What You Love art piece is cut 3-3/4 x 3-3/4.  The art piece is cut 3-1/2 x 3-1/2. I adhered the art piece to the Tranquil Tide mat with Liquid Glue and popped it on the Whisper White embossed panel and wrapped a length of Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon around the panel and secured it on the back with tape.

I then adhered the Whisper White panel to the Tranquil Tide card base.  A greeting from the Blooming With Kindness stamp set was stamped on a Whisper White circle that had been cut using a circle die and a scalloped circle die.  The bird was stamped in Tranquil Tide ink on a scrap of Tranquil Tide cardstock and cut using the die from the Backyard Basic Thinlits Dies. The bird along with flowers that had been cut from the Share What You Love DSP was popped on the circle with the greeting.  Rhinestone embellishments were used on the flower centers, and my usual little heart was placed beside the greeting.

The inside sentiment was stamped using the Petal Palette Stamp Set on a Whisper White panel.  I off-stamped the birds once and then stamped on the panel.

That’s it for today. Visit again.  Have a blessed day!

Pink and Gold

Pink and Gold

Here it is Monday, and I hope this week is much better than last. Last Monday we had a flood at our house and it has been a mess all last week and there is still cleaning to be done to finish up all the mess that happened.  My washing machine took revenge on me and let me have it big time.  Didn’t have time for one card until yesterday and then I made one for a little fellow that has been having a hard time.

My card for today is a combination of Crazy 4 Challenges and Tic, Tac, Toe Challenge 044. I used the top row across.

I started with a Rich Razzleberry card base. I cut a mat from the Painted with Love DSP. I cut a wedge out of it by marking from corner to corner on the reverse side, so I would know how far to cut the wedge.

          On the Rich Razzleberry  wedge that shows after adhering the Painted With Love DSP, I stamped using Versa Mark the flowers from the Love What You Do stamp set, (The early release for customers runs 1 – 31 May.)  I then used the white watercolor pencil from the Watercolor Pencil packet to color the flowers.  I thought the flowers would be white, but they have come out a lilac color.  I suppose the white on top of the Rich Razzleberry turns it to that color.

       I also stamp a second flower on a scrap of Rich Razzleberry, after coloring it with the white watercolor pencil, I fussy cut it and popped it half on the Rich Razzleberry wedge and on the Painted  With Love DSP.  I added a bit of bling using the Enamel Shapes Embellishments.

The greeting is from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set, stamped on a scrap of Whisper White paper and popped on the Painted With Love DSP.

         The inside sentiment also from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set is stamped on a panel of Whisper White and adhered to the card base with liquid glue.  I stamped the flower from the Love What You Do stamp set on the panel below the sentiment using Rich Razzleberry ink.

This is the card without a bow.  I like it better I believe with a bow.  What do you think?

That’s it for today.  Hope you enjoy visiting, come again!
