Sunset Ocean Card

Hello! I wanted to actually post this yesterday - but got caught up in the fun of celebrating Thanksgiving, and that seemed more important! So...thought I'd drop by and share it today, even if it is late!

This is using another of the new releases at Unity Stamp Company - and the sale has been extended through the weekend, so you can still grab this set at a fabulous price! I had so much fun coloring it up with my Copic markers! Completely flat and and easy to mail card too!

Here is a link to all the supplies I used on this card - and even though it is a day late - I wanted to wish you a HAPPY THANKSGIVING - have a wonderful weekend!

Winnie and Walter - BIGGER Bang Confetti and SALE

Good morning! I'm joining the amazing ladies over at Winnie and Walter this morning to promote a fun limited edition stamp set that they are GIVING away during their Black Friday thru Cyber Monday sale! SOOO fun! It was a little last minute, so I didn't have as much time to play with it as I would have liked, but I have a feeling this stamp set will be coming out to play again very soon!

I created a watercolor background in a fun bold pink, then stamped random circle elements from the stamp set in white pigment ink, then stamped over in gold ink. Added some of the diamond shapes in pink SSS ink, then some of the fun sequins that I got as one of the fun freebies from Winnie and Walter in my package. Finished off by stitching that panel at the top to my card base - one of my favorite simple ways to attach a watercolor panel to a card base!

Here is all the sale info - make sure and sign up for the newsletter as well - you can find that on the side of the blog page HERE:

You Have the Biggest Heart

Good morning! So...I've been so busy posting fall and Christmas type cards, that I thought it would be fun to break out some supplies to make a completely different theme card! This would work for Valentine's Day, or any other day just because! This is a set that released earlier this year from Simon Says Stamp, and I hadn't had a chance to break out and use yet - so now seemed like a good opportunity!

I started off by making a messy watercolor background. While that dried, I colored the little girl with Copic markers, then fussy cut her out (since I don't happen to have the coordinating dies!) I heat embossed a sentiment on a strip of black cardstock, and adhered that to the watercolor paper, and added the girl with foam adhesive. I coated the heart, dress, and socks with Wink of Stella (as always, so hard to see in the photos!), then added Glossy Accents to the heart. Added a sprinkle of clear sequins, and then colored a scrap of white cardstock with the same Copics I used to color the heart (for a perfect match!) to die cut the bow and add a little strip under the sentiment.

Here are all the supplies that I used for this card - thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!
