Give Thanks

Happy Saturday! It's the beginning of September and that means the fall creating can begin. I love this time of year! Today's card features Give Thanks and the brand new coordinating dies.




For the wreath, I ink blended marmalade, buttercup and parsley inks onto white cardstock and splattered with gold and brown paint. Next, I stamped the leaf image with wheat ink over the background and die cut the images out. I stamped the berries with wheat onto brushed gold cardstock and die cut. Originally I left them plain, but decided to add paint splatters to them too.

I embossed the thanks sentiment with gold powder, die cut and stacked with 3 more plain die cuts to create depth. I assembled the wreath as seen, adding more paint splatters afterwards. I glued the word in place, added foam tape to the back and set aside to make the background.

The background is really easy. I die cut the panel, placed the Leaf Branch stencil over the top and inked with antique linen distress ink. I splattered with gold and brown paint and stamped the sentiment with walnut stain distress ink. I matted the panel with dark brown, put it on a white card base and attached the wreath to the front.

I'm Here for You

 

Happy Saturday! I love stencils and the new Bubbles stencil is so much fun! Plus, it's easy to mix with other stencils as you will see in today's card.



My card started with a second generation inking of the Grunge Gears stencil(take stencil off project after inking, spritz with water and lay on top of another price of cardstock). Then, I used the brand new Bubbles stencil with orchid opulence and lavender lace ink(SU!) making sure to move the stencil when I changed colors. 

The stamped the bold sentiments from Here for You with versafine claire nocturne ink directly on the panel, matted with black and attached to a white card base. The girl image is from A Little Snarky and I adore her. I colored her with Prima watercolors(#'s 20, 22, 24, 41, 10). Her multicolored shirt was a little tricky and I took it slow so it didn't bleed onto the skin. I fussy cut the image out and glued to the front.

Beach Time

Nothing quite says summer like a day at the beach. I haven't been yet this season and I really want to go after creating this card. I am wishing I was sitting in the chair soaking up the sun, sights and sounds. How about you?



I stamped the image from By the Sea with versafine clair nocturne ink on mixed media paper and cut it with a stitched rectangle die. I colored the image with prima watercolor sets Woodlands(sand ridge, cavern, pond), Terrain(vine leaf) and Tropical(hibiscus, ocean). 

Once dry, I stamped the sentiment directly on the front with black. I matted the panel with white and attached to a kraft card base. I added the sun from Melt for You after when I felt it needed a little something extra. It was nice and relaxing to sit and watercolor this image.

Cherry Much

 

 Hi everyone, I am back today sharing a sweet and easy card. I love easy cards and I love cherries too!



I began by stamping the small cherries from Summer Vibes randomly on a piece of white cardstock. I colored the cherries with alcohol markers, die cut the panel, matted with pretty in pink cardstock and attached to a white card base. 

I cut the sentiment panel with one of the dies from the Decorative Frames Die Set. Then, I stamped one of the Decorative Frames Toppers along the top. Next, I stamped the sentiment from Summer Fruits underneath and pulled an already colored image of cherries from the same set from my stash. Finally, I glued the cherries to the front of the sentiment panel, popped it up with foam tape in the center and added three small pink gems to it. 

I almost forgot, I added some sparkle to the cherries with some nuvo glitter gloss.

You are Special

Happy Saturday! I'm back with a simple and easy birthday card.



I made the background in January and pulled it from my stash for this card. I die cut the panel, added black dots with a texture stamp, and matted with green. I wrapped white string along one edge and attached to a white card base. 

I stamped the flower image, frame and sentiment with black ink and die cut out. I colored the image with watercolor brush markers and added with dots with a gel pen. This was a quick, easy card and I love all the green!
