Guest Designer - The Flower Challenge #33 [Reminder]

Hey lovely friends! Have you played at the challenge "The Flower Challenge" for the month of June. Here is a reminder card I made as a Guest Designer :) Once again I want to thank Vivian and the Flower challenge team for having me :)

I am also excited as I am sponsoring a prize for the challenge from my own Stamp line "Dee's Artsy Impressions" under the umbrella of STAMPlorations. You can find my illustrations HERE.


This month the challenge is to "Focus on Background Stamping" and like last time I decided to use another one of my Floral stamp sets "Blossom Sprays #3" to make my background. Let me show you my card...

To make the card, I took a french grey card stock and stamped the floral cluster multiple times to make my background. I then pencil colored the images, added some enamel dots with the sentiment strips. To make the look unique, I partially colored the petals in pink and white. I also used different colors of yellow to color my lily. I have also usedLittle Love Birthday Wishes and PrismaColor Pencils.

Here is another look...

I hope you liked my card, don't forget to play along with the Flower challenge. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)

STAMPlorations Spotlight - Wanderlust

Hello friends! I am up with a spotlight project over at the STAMPlorations blog. I hope I will be able to inspire you. Today I am playing with an older stamp club set "Wanderlust"  I decided to make tags that can be added to the gifts for people who love to travel or may be we can send these as a reminder to those busy with routine that there is so much more to life :) Seeing the images in this set I was inclined towards making little scenes but with a difference. Let me show you...

A little play time for me!

Hey friends! Its been a while since I played with challenges and I made this card just to get back into the fun part of being inspired and creating :) This card is the end result of just that...

Hope you will like it :) I had fun making this card. 
For this clean and simple card I was inspired by CASology Week 345 - Calm [Water signifies Calm], Addicted to CAS #161 - Dad [father is my support system], CAS Mix it up June - Ombre [plus I used masking, fuzzy cutting] and Addicted to Stamps and more #344 - CAS

I simply masked [using post-it] and inked the card panel to make my sea with sun rays and stamped, colored and fuzzy cut the images to create this calm scene. I have used Anchored Stamp set, Distress inks and Prisma Color Pencils.
Here is a closeup...

   

Hope to play along more often. Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)

STAMPlorations Clear Stickers [New Product]

Hello friends! I'm excited to share my creations using the new product line from STAMPlorations, the CLEAR STICKERS! STAMPlorations Clear Stickers are laser printed on 100% transparent and high-gloss polyester material with a permanent adhesive. The stickers also have a waterproof top coat, making them smear- and smudge-free!


I made a variety of cards using some of these stickers and let me tell you... its delightful to just stick the sentiment on top of your finished project :) I love the variety and quality of these a lot. Let me show you what I created...
I had to make a summery card for this sentiment sticker and what could be better than Popsicle :) On a watercolor panel, I stamped the Popsicle and did no line water coloring. Adhered this panel on patterned paper and stuck the sticker on top. I have used Good Things - Clear Stickers, Sweet Cravings and Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies

Those coffee cups go perfectly with this sticker. All I did was use a color palette for the cups. Masked and stamped the cups and water colored them. A splatter of white and adhering of the sticker on top.


I love water coloring, So the Christmas card had to be water colored too :) I stamped the holly in Distress inks and water colored them for some depth and details.To finish I adhered the sentiment sticker on top. I have used Merry - Clear StickersLayered Holly and Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies

For this card, I decided to use these gorgeous new Face stencils. Kept it simple by letting the beauty of the stencil shine. Followed neutral tones with pop of color with those butterflies. Sentiment sticker was stuck on white card stock and then cut to be adhered on the card. I have used New day - Clear stickers, Faces: Wistful - ARTplorations Stencil, Winged Things

For this card, I wanted to add color through the sentiments. So I inked a white card stock with different colors of inks, adhered the sticker sentiment and cut them out. On the card base I stamped the floral stamp. Did a white splatter and arranged the colorful sentiments on top. I have used New day - Clear stickers, In bloom: Classic Cala Lillies


I had fun playing with these. I think these CLEAR STICKERS are a must have :)
Hope you liked my creations too. Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)
