Happy Birthday Mary!

I love this birthday girl stamp from Unity Stamps. The "Count Your Blessings" stamp is by: Technique Junkies. It was an easy card to create. I stamped the girl onto watercolor paper, then I used my Koi watercolors and painted each color using my paintbrush (letting it dry before adding the next color) over the girl and present. Added a few star sequin up at the top.

2017 Calendar

 I made my friend Lorraine a 2017 calendar for her birthday which is this week. These sheets are all 4x6. I used all different stamp companies. Alot of them are my favorite stamps from all the years I've been stamping!

I got the frame from Kohls and I like how she can just change each month on the clip.

I hope she loves it!!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Fun Stampers Journey is collecting breast cancer cards the month of October and I made these using my 2 sets I have from Flourishes and Amuse Studio.  The stamp set from Amuse Studio can bought here. Its FREE and all you have to do is pay $3.00 shipping. What a deal!!! I think the Flourishes stamp set has retired. I'll be mailing my cards to Fun Stampers Journey this week.

PP317 Challenge - Leaf

I have made a few of these leaf cards using real leaves from my yard. It was real simple. I took a leaf and I inked the leaf using Memento Inks (Ladybug Red, Tangelo Orange, Dandelion Yellow and Bamboo Leaves Green). I put it through my Big Kick and smashed the color onto it. It came out looking a real leaf (which of course it is!). lol  I had learned this technique from another challenge a few months ago and I really like how simple it is.

So this is my card for the PP317 challenge for The Paper Players

Sentiment by:  Impression Obsession Zenspirations

I colored these postcards

I colored these postcards (found at Michael's) using my Tombow markers ....

For Jarrod's 20th birthday

Unity Sketch

I decided to enter Unity's challenge this week and this is the sketch. (Sorry for the grainy picture but I took a pic of the sketch and it didn't come out so great).

So this is what I decided to do. I wanted to use this awesome washi tape I found at Hobby Lobby. But to use this tape and have it read the correct way, I had to flip the card and this is what I came up with. All stamps by Unity Stamps. The purple cardstock and the purple ink for the sentiment are by Brutus Monroe. The purple is actually called "Aubergine". I really like that color purple!!
