Greeting Farm Card

Hi Everyone,
So I wasn't planning on doing this card, but after today I wanted to create something to relieve some stress.  So I started to color some new stamps I received and some stamps I haven't colored in a while.  So I made this card.

I colored this girl from the Greeting Farm Lovey Dovey Set.  Her skin is E00 & E21.  Her hair is E33, YR24, and E37.  Her clothes are RV21, BG23, BG32, BG15, and BG09.
I used the Spell Binders Nestabilities Classic Ovals LG.  I also used the Recollections background stamp to stamp the graphic piece. I found some cardstock in my stash.  I think the pink is from CTMH and the Blue is Bazzill.  Let me know what you think.

Paper Smooches Anything Goes

Hi Everyone,

Today I made this card for the Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge.

So here is the card I came up with.
I started with some masking paper cut to 4 x 5 1/4.  I used the scalloped circles dies to cut out a mask.  I added the mask to the card base.  I then took 3 colors of distress ink and added them to the scalloped circle.  I then added a little water to make the colors blend and bleed a little.  I also used distress ink to create the boarder around the mask.  I stamped the washing machine from the Squeaky Clean set on a separate piece of paper and colored it with my Copic Markers.  I used C1, C3, RG21, and BG32.  I then cut it out and added a little clear Wink of Stella to the heart.  I glued it over the scalloped circle and stamped the sentiment and it was done.  
Thanks for looking!

Paper Smooches Inspiration

Hi Everyone,

Paper Smooches is having a Picture Perfect challenge.  So the Challenge is to create a 
project based on this photo.
If you know me, you know that I love wood grain, so I found a wood grain paper in 
the Country Boutique 6x6 pad from Fancy Pants Designs.  I then painted it with
Tim Holtz Distress Paint in picket fence and broken china.  Then I added
silver embossing powder to the top.  I then took a kraft piece of cardstock and 
painted it with black soot and embossed "Hello" from the Paper Smooches
Scripty Sayings with white embossing powder.  I also added a little
piece of washi tape.  I tied it with a little bit of twine I had in my stash.  I then put
it on my card base with foam tape.  I really love the colors.  
So what do you think?  Let me know by leaving me a comment.
Thanks for looking.


Purple Birthday

Hi Everyone,
I made this card for my Aunt's Birthday.  She loves purple.
So I started with a purple card base I have had in my stash for a very long time.  I then took some watercolor paper and used my Tim Holtz Distress Paint in the color seedless preserves and my Studio Calico Huey's Bubbles Mask and dabbed the paint over the mask onto the water color paper.  After that dried I added a silver doilies from Studio Calico.  I then had a chipboard piece from Close to my Heart that I stamped with the Flower from the Card Word Puzzle stamp set by Close to my Heart.  I heat embossed that with Silver embossing powder.  I also stamped the Happy Birthday from Sweet Birthday Wishes from Jaded Blossom and heat embossed that with the same embossing powder.  I cut a banner edge on the sentiment and glued all the card together.  I hope she will like this card.
Thanks for stopping by.

Anything Goes "Get better warp speed"

Hi Everyone
Hope everyone is having a great summer.  We have been having tons of fun.  I made the card the for Paper Smooches Challenge this week.

I started with the background I took distress paint in the colors seedless preserves, black soot, mustard seed, broken china, and picket fence.  I put them on a craft mat and added a little water, then I smooshed my watercolor paper into the paints.  I did it in multiple layers to make it look like a galaxy.  
I did the same thing with the planets just eliminating the black and white.  I then embossed the sentiment from the Paper Smooches Space Cadet stamp set with VersaMark and white embossing powder.  I also stamped the cute little alien and colored him with the distress pains and a little water.  I mixed the broken china and mustard seed to make the alien green.  I added liquid glass on top of the alien to make it look like glass of him.  All the products I used are listed below.  Thanks for checking out my card.
