Happy World Card Making Day 2016

It’s been literally ages. Forever. Too long. I made a card! I even made a little graphic to celebrate the day.

5528edae7aeb324ae4a34ce211049c15I used a really, really old set from #sweetstampshop, Out in Space. I believe I received this set when I won PaperCrafts Stamping Royalty. I’m not sure… but it just goes to show you that you don’t need the newest stamp sets to make a cute card.

just ripe.

A Stampin’ Up! set, Market Fresh, i139344Gs front and center on my card today. I must be yearning for a warm spring and some fresh fruit… just looking at this card makes me hungry for strawberries.
Watercoloring seemed to be the perfect fit for this set. Giving the strawberries that “almost” perfectly ripe look was easily done with my Zig Clean Color Markers. I used water color paper for maximum blend-a-bilitiy without overworking the paper.

Twine is making a comeback of sorts in my card making. I seem to be using it quite a bet, especially the black and white.StrawberriesCard (1 of 3) StrawberriesCard (3 of 3)Happy creating my friends,

you are lovely.

Today’s card started out as what I thought was a mistake, I hated the two yellows together. As I worked with it a bit more I became quite enamored, isn’t it funny how the creative brain works sometimes? I used Altenew’s Painted Flowers stamp set and a greeting from one of the newer sets that Michaels has put out from their color splash collection to create the image and greeting. YouAreLovelyCard (1 of 3)
The colors are from Stampin’ Up!, Daffodil Delight and Delightful Dijon. The greeting was created with Versamark ink and white embossing powder.  I picked up the sparkly circle stickers from the dollar store. YouAreLovelyCard (2 of 3)

miss you. mft sketch challenge.

Today I am visiting the design I used earlier this week, with a cat interacting with a greeting. This time I went with the latest color challenge at My Favorite Things.

I used two stamp sets from MFT: Bold Statements and I Knead You. I didnt’ use their specific inks, but I did have coordinating colors from Stampin’ UP!: Pistachio Pudding, Wild Wasabi,  and Marigold Morning. Again, my Misti played a key roll in getting everything to line-up.
