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!

Watercolor Wonder

Happy Thursday! I woke up early this morning and decided before spending the morning/afternoon on the computer editing and then doing sessions this evening that I would relax and watercolor!

I have always loved watercoloring, but sometimes I end up throwing the paper in the trash half way through. LOL! It is messy... not perfect... but gorgeous!! :) This little watercolor would be a perfect example... I almost gave up on this!! LOL! I kept adding and adding and adding and just past the point of giving up was a gorgeous watercolor completed! I'm so happy I didn't give up on this one! This may just be my absolute favorite of all time!

I hope you find beauty all around you today and take a moment to breathe and enjoy something relaxing!

Have a blessed day!

Sweet Thank You

Happy Tuesday! Here is my card for today's color challenge! I've been so into watercolor lately... as a lot of us have! I decided to use the color challenge to make some beautiful flowers!! It was a lot of layering and steps, but came out beautiful in my opinion. LOL! :)

I hope you like it! Have a blessed day!

Cheers, Ashley
