I absolutely adore her style and this set is fun. I made quite a few cards and I will share those in coming weeks but today I am sharing two. Let me show you the stamps first and then my cards...

I made my first card with traditional Super Hero image in mind... red and blue and also stars :) I used Oh my Stars stencil and smooshed red Distress ink on it. I then sprayed it with water and stamped the stencil over watercolor card stock panel. I then stamped and water colored the Super Hero and added the sentiment to finish it.



I love the grungy look that I got with that stencil, what do you think? 

Now to my second card, here I captured the goodness of city scape. Only not the traditional black but an array of colorful bright Distress Oxide inks layered on top of the other to build the sky scrapers. I then fuzzy cut this. For the background I masked and ink to create a sun burst in blue ink. To make a birthday card I added embossed vellum balloons. Besides the new set I used Balloons and Banners, Skinny sentiments dies andParty time stamp set.


Hope you enjoyed my cards. Don't forget to hop along for a shot at the prizes, HERE. I will be back tomorrow with Day 2 of the release. thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me some love :)

Crafty Meraki - March 6th 2021

 Hello friends! I am back with Crafty Meraki goodness. Today I am featuring another set I illustrated for Crafty Meraki called “Floral Hugs” . I am super excited to share it here today as I have not shared it on my blog before.

So this card is pretty simple to make. It's all about coloring here :) I stamped the image in a light color ink and then used my Chalkola Watercolor Brush Pens to color this. Easy peasy! To finish I added the heat embossed sentiment strip. Here is a close up...

I simple masked around to ink this white heart on a grey card stock. Next I stamped the floral image and did no line pencil coloring. To finish I stamped the sentiment. I used Facets StencilWooded and Thank you Coffee

SPELLBINDERS - Make a Scene Collection February 2021

Hello dear friends! I feel so thrilled to be guesting with Spellbinders again. Today I am sharing the cards I created featuring the newest Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken  I made a couple of cards featuring the following products Cozy Home Scene, Wedded Bliss Scene and Filigree Fa├žade Frame Etched Dies from this collection

Let me show the cards I created :) These products are so intricate and detailed, I loved making these little scene for my cards. They can be used in many different ways but I decided to use a simple color scheme and a simple design.

For my cards, I chose off white, baby pink and warm grey card stock. I die cut various elements of these dies and put them together to build the scenes. For my home card, I made the sun burst by simple masking technique.
Here is a close up...


Unfortunately my photos did not capture the exact colors of these but I think in real life this combination looks beautiful.

I hope you were inspired by my creations. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)Don't forget to check out the new dies HERE

Crafty Meraki - February 27th 2021

Hello friends! I am back with Crafty Meraki goodness. Today I am featuring a gorgeous stamp set “Fluttering Feathers” from Crafty Meraki. This is one of the sets from "Meraki Hugs" release. You can check out all the products HERE. 

Let me show you what I made... 
So for this card I clear embossed the butterflies partially on a green card stock. I then inked over it using shades of green and blue Distress Oxide inks. I also heat embossed the butterflies on vellum with white embossing powder. I then fuzzy cut those and layered them on my panel. For the frame I used a previously released Slim line die Timeless Frame Slimline die To finish I added the heat embossed sentiment strip. Here is a close up...



Hope you like this card!
