Unique Watercolor Snowflake

 Happy Monday!! :-)

When I saw todays clean and simple challenge I wasn't for sure what I wanted to do other than to use the big snowflake die that I have had forever. I'm not even really sure where it came from... LOL! :) I used it to die cut cardstock and then decided instead of using the cutout I would use the negative space on the front of the card. Then I watercolored the center of the card base and layered the negative space on top! I used my aqua shimmer brush to watercolor. It is so pretty in person! So much shimmer and shine!! :) I added some of my Lucy's Falling Snow Sparkling sequins to add some more shimmer and shine!! :)

Have a blessed day!

Free for All Challenge | Love you Snow Much

Happy Friday! :)

I hope everyone is having a beautiful day! When I saw todays free for all challenge using stripes I wasn't too sure what I was going to do. LOL! :) So I decided to still go with a winter theme using the snowflakes to make stripes. Then pairing it with the stripe of patterned paper. I love this sweet little fox from the Winter Wonderland stamp set by Pretty Pink Posh!!! :-)

I hope you have a great weekend!!

Lawn Fawn | You're the Sweetest

Happy Wednesday! 

I thought I would sit down late last night after we finished our final Christmas with family and stamp a bit. The sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers was up so I went ahead and combined the sketch and color challenges for the week. :) We moved in October and a lot of my stamp supplies are still in boxes so I used what I had close to the colors in the challenge. LOL!! :) 

I used the sweet friends stamp set by Lawn Fawn! As soon as I saw this stamp set I knew I had to have it!! It is SO CUTE!!! :) 

I hope you like it and have a blessed day!

Happy New Year! 

It has been nearly a year and a half since I have posted or even sat down to make a card. Today I decided to take the time to sit down and make a card using this sweet stamp set I got from Pretty Pink Posh. It's called "Winter Wonderland" and was just too cute to pass up. Anyone that knows me knows that I LOVE moose and have an obsession with them. LOL! So as soon as I saw the set I knew I had to get it. :) 

I used my zig clean color markers with a Tonic Aqua Shimmer Pen on bristol watercolor paper to color these sweet images. :) Then I took a copic marker to make the snowflakes. This was such a quick and easy card to put together. A great thing since it has been so long since I have gotten my stamp supplies out. LOL! 

I hope you have a wonderful New Year and wish you lots of love and laughter in the new year! :) 

Lots of Hugs & Smiles,

Thanks | Stampin' Up! Blended Bloom

Happy Saturday! :)

I hope you're having a lovely weekend. I had a wedding to photograph yesterday and have one here shortly. :) I didn't have any time to stamp, but thought I would share a quick card I made a few weeks ago to say thanks to my momma for hosting Grant's 7th birthday party! :)

I used Stampin' Up's Blended Bloom stamp for this card. Oh my goodness it is still one of my favorite flower stamps ever! So big and beautiful! I used my zig clean color real brush markers to do all of the watercolor. I wanted a large "THANKS" die cut for the front of the card. I layered 5 die cuts on top of each other using matte muli-medium liquid adhesive. :) Then I took a spectrum noir glitter pen and some glossy accents to top off the die cut. :) It's so much prettier in person!

I hope you have a blessed day! I better get ready for my wedding today!

Hugs & Smiles,

Riley Popping Pumpkin color challenge and video

Happy Friday! :)

 I hope you're having a lovely day! :) I decided that I would create a fun card for the SCS color challenge at 3am this morning when my eyes couldn't take staring at the computer screen any longer editing my photography clients images. LOL! :) It was a nice relaxing 20 minutes and I even videoed me creating this card.  

I absolutely adore moose and can never get enough of them. This cute little guy is from Riley and Co. He makes me smile! I did some simple copic coloring and it was just so relaxing.  

I hope you enjoy the video! Have a blessed day!
