Shower of Blessings watercolor card featuring Pretty Pink Posh


Happy Monday! Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

Stopping in to share a sweet and simple water color card with you today featuring the Rainy Days and Birdie Friends stamp sets from Pretty Pink Posh.

I started with a piece of water color paper and did some ink smooshing on it using some Distress Ink. I smooshed the ink onto some acetate,misted it with water and pressed it all over my water color panel. 
I stamped the umbrella, clouds and birdies on separate water color paper and colored in using Zig real brush markers and used the coordinating die cuts to cut out and adhere onto my panel. I stamped my sentiment and adhered the panel onto  an A2 card base of  Neenah desert storm card stock.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!

Colored Pencils on Kraft featuring Mama Elephant

I've very much enjoyed using colored pencils on kraft card stock lately! I don't have it down yet but I'm still loving the way it looks.
I used the Botanical Hello stamp from Mama Elephant.

This was fairly simple to create so pretty quick and easy to explain, the coloring is the only thing that takes long:p
I started with Neenah Desert Storm card stock and cut it to an A2 card base. 
I stamped my Hello with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
I then colored in with Prisma colored pencils, to blend I used a blending ink and some baby oil. I know baby oil sounds weird while explaining crafting, if you haven't heard of that technique before, I highly suggest looking on YouTube, I liked the finished look much better but everyone has their own preference:) 
I splattered some sparkly white Tambi starry color water colors around the stamped area for some extra intrest.

That's it for my card today!
Thank you for popping by!!

Stitched Frame Thank You featuring Memory Box & PPP

Hope your all well today!
I have a floral card to share with you today, looking at my creation recently it looks like I've been loving the flowers! Perfect for spring around the corner (well far around the corner:P)

For my card I started off with fog card stock from SSS that I cut down to A2 size. I placed my Stitched Pieces die from PPP in the middle and ran it threw my die cut machine. I then used Smoke ink from SSS to stamp the smaller images in the Watching Bloom stamp set from Memory Box onto the background for a slightly darker tone on tone look. I stamped the flowers in the set on white card stock and colored in with Prisma colored pencils and fussy cut them out.
I adhered my die cut panel onto a Seaglass card base. I then adhered my cut out flowers over top and stamped my sentiment in the middle area, and to finish off my card I added some scattered sequins from PPP.

Thank you so much for stopping in today!!
Have a lovely rest of your day!!

You're Turtley Awesome featuring Paper Smooches

Hello crafty friends!
Hope your having a great day so far!

Here today to share a fun watercolor card featuring the adorable Courteous Cuties stamp set from Paper Smooches!! LOVE that turtle, he remind of the turtle from Finding Nemo.

For this card I started with a piece of water color paper and stamped my images along with the sentiment from the stamp set and colored in the images and the water background with Zig real brush markers and a water brush.
I used the Scallop Borders die from PPP on the left hand side along with some silver glitter paper and adhered onto a Lavender card stock base from SSS.
To give the card its finishing touch I added some glossy accents onto the bubbles.

That's it for my card today!
Thank you ever so much for stopping in!!

Watercolor Hello featuring Mama Elephant

Hi there crafty friends!

I have a water colored card to share with you today featuring the lovely Botanical Hello stamp set from Mama Elephant, I just adore this set! As soon as I had seen it I knew I had to have it as it would make for such easy but pretty cards!

I started with a water color paper panel and stamped my image with Versafine black ink and colored in the whole image with Zig real brush markers and a water brush. I added a little bit of grey into the hello are so that it wasn't completely white. I then added some colored sequins around the image from PPP. Before adding my panel onto a white card base I added two strips of polka dot washi tape I had on hand on each side for some added interest. 

That's it for my creation today, hope you enjoyed!
Thank you for stopping by!!
