Watercolor thank you

Morning. I figured I should try my hand at some water coloring again as it has been awhile. I pulled out Abundant Petals for my creation today. Stamped them in rose ink and water colored with the same ink. 


Added some leaves with a bright green ink and should of used a darker ink. Good to know for next time. Added some various ink colored splatters and then die cut with a stitched rectangle. Some designer paper to the panel and then added to the base. I also added sparkle to just the outside edge of the petals, but it is hard to see in the photo. My sentiment and voila!

Franken cute

This adorable guy is called Frankie's Pet Bat. He is printed and colored with various Copic markers. A simple black backing for the image panel.


The background is a spider web that I drew and added the die cut fence to the bottom with the sentiment. Added a die cut arrow with a button accent. Super cut fella that my nephew will love. Have a great day.

Beautiful sunflower

Happy Friday. Remember I said I pulled out my sunflowers this week? Well here is my second one for you from In Praise of Sunflowers . Stamped on white cardstock and colored with various Copic markers. I then pierced around the edge of the image panel and stamped the sentiment.


Wrapped some ribbon and lace trim around the edge of the base designer panel and then added the image panel. Tied a bow and added some enamel dots. Voila!

Quick masculine cards

Two quick masculine birthday cards for you today. My birthday stash was empty once again and I need a few for the month.  My first one is using A Godly Man that was perfect for my designer paper. Simple piercing around the base layers for this one and my birthday sentiment across the edge. 

This second one is using up some scraps of designer paper and scraps from the above card. So  twofer today. ha ha  Also did get to use "new to me" embossing folder of the elk head. I know this will be used a lot in my family cards so I finally broke down and bought it.  


Two for the price of one with using scraps today, not to shabby.  :-)  Thanks for stopping by.

Sunflower birthday's

Good morning. Dug out a few of my sunflower stamps this last week and made a few creations. This one is from Heartfelt Creations and I do believe it is retired. Some of the image is trimmed off from the circle die cut as I layered a base with scallops. 

The base has some added faux stitching to the edge along with sheer ribbon and twine wrapped around the top. Colored with various Copic markers and added to the base. Tie off a heart wood button and my birthday sentiment. Voila!

Birthday Big bloom

Happy Friday! Today is the boys first game of the season for football! We are excited as it is against the town rival. Wish us a win tonight!
My card today is using the beautiful big bloom called Chrysanthemum XL stamp. Still trying to work on my red coloring attempts.  :-)


This is a large blossom but I did trim it down a bit with the die cut to fit the front and show some designer paper behind. A few enamel dots and a little bit of sparkle. Voila!

Cheers to a lovely friend

Good morning! I pulled out My English Rose last week and created a few card with it. This is another one that I had made and I really like how it turned out. Marcy sure does know how to draw florals doesn't she. Aaaahhhhhh. 


A scrap piece of white paper from another project was sitting on the desk so I used that for the main panel. Stamped the rose a few times in a row and cut to fit the card front. Colored with various Copic markers and then added a red layer to the side panel. Attached to the card base and then my sentiment with a fish tail end. A few scattered sequins and voila! Have a wonderful day.
