You Are Pretty Darn Amazing

You Are Pretty Darn Amazing


Here's another card using gelato's. I actually made the background awhile ago and just set it aside waiting to be inspired to create something with it. I kept looking at it and finally decided to use an Avery Elle stamp set with a coordinating die. The stamp and die are called Simply Said:You. The three gelato colors I used are cotton candy, grape and blueberry.

I found some cardstock in my stash that matched the background to use for the die cut. It wasn't a real heavy weight cardstock so I cut it twice and adhered it together. I used Memento ink in called bahama blue. The splatters were done with the same color gelato's as the background. The white die cut is called Fancy Labels. Very simple card with bright colors!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Hello Sunshine

Hello Sunshine


I managed to get a little time in my craft room this weekend and got a few cards made. Today I'm sharing one of them.

The background for this card was created using Gelato's. I used white PaperTrey Ink cardstock that I prepped with gesso since I was going to get it wet. The colors I used are grape, tangerine and lemon.

The image and sentiment are from Hero Arts. The stamp set is called Hello Sunshine Daisies. I stamped them using my MISTI with versamark and then heat embossed with Recollections snow embossing powder. The bling is from My Mind's Eye and Doodlebug Design.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sharing A Few Cards.....

Thank You 

Today I'm sharing two cards I made last week. I was out and about this past weekend and wasn't able to get any decent photos while I had a good stream of sunlight coming in the window of my craft room.

The first card uses a Hero Arts stamp called Blooming Meadow and a stamp from a set called Handwritten Borders by Simon Says Stamp! I heat embossed both the image and the sentiment with embossing powder from Recollections called Glacier. I love this color. I used cardstock from PaperTrey Ink for the base for both cards.

The Journey

My second card uses a stamp set from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous called Phrases 2. I really love this set! I stamped the sentiment onto Ranger watercolor cardstock with clear embossing powder and then inked the paper with Tim Holtz distress inks in these colors: scattered straw, dusty concord, salty ocean, crushed olive and worn lipstick.

I keep bookmarking different challenges I want to participate in, but the week gets away from me and I don't always get a chance to sit down and create. I'm hoping to be able to get a few done this week. We'll see how far I get.........
