Sending Love and Hugs!

I have been on a search for a new set of flower stamps and found this awesome from Simon Says Stamp called Sketch Ranunculus.  I love these flowers and to find a set that was named this was awesome.  I stamped the images in Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder on water color paper.  I then colored the flowers, stems and leaves using Peerless watercolor paint swatches.  I added the die cut word from Simon Says Stamp and word banner.  I added liquid pearl accents to complete the layout.  I then stamped and colored a few more in different color combinations.


Happy Anniversary Wishes!

Seems like I have been on a watercoloring technique focus.  I used the new flower set from My Favorite Things again.  I painted the flowers with Gelatos and Twinkling H2O’s.  I die cut the Happy word from Hero Arts and then added glossy accents when I attached it to the card.  I stamped the anniversary below the die cut.  A twine accent ribbon was tied to the bottom of the card.  Ready for the mail in a few days.


Pretty in Pink New Baby Card

It has been awhile since I made a card for a new baby which of course is such a happy occasion.  I used this Magenta stamp for many different cards but wanted to create something a bit different since the last time I used it.  I used Tombow markers to color the individual images.  Then I added some glitter glue accents and glossy accents to make things pop.  I like to combine a variety of different patterned papers and is a great way to use up all those small pieces left from other paper projects.  After posting this card on Instagram, I got a request from  a follower to make one for  her as well!

A Garden of Flowers!

I ordered a few new acrylic cling stamp sets last week.  I have wanted to try a bit more watercoloring with flowers and of course, I just had to buy a few more sets.  I added several different versions to my “board” on Pinterest.  Here is my first try and will continue to try different paints and layouts to create other card sketches.  A work in progress!
