Simply Wonderful Bloom & Grow...

Well guess what day it is?!  (Being in this quarantine life...does ANYONE know what day it is anymore?!  😂 Haha.)  It is Day 4 of Martin's #30daycardmakingchallenge! Yay!  So excited about this card because WATERCOLORING is the star of the show on this card...


SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my STORE!)

Colors: Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Pineapple Punch
Inks:  Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Pineapple Punch, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers:  Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Gray Granite, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper
Stamps: Bloom & Grow
Tools: Heat Tool, Aqua Painter, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Subtle Embossing Folder, Label Me Lovely Punch
AccessoriesWhite Stampin' Emboss Powder, Woven Threads Sequin Assortment, Petal Pink 1/4" Metallic-Edge Ribbon
 
So...I pretty much am just in love with this card!  I love how I used bright colors that I LOVE, but it has such a softer look when you watercolor.  I used Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, and Pineapple Punch.

But I guess I should share what the challenge is today!  Nope...you don't have to watercolor!


Just make a card using a stamp set you have never used!  SO MUCH FUN, right?!  Thanks, Martin!  This was a fun one.  Because I LOVE the stamp set that I used here, Bloom & Grow, but I have yet to use it!  That just isn't ok!  Hee.  So this challenge was perfect!

On to more details of the card:


I stamped, embossed and watercolored the flower image twice.  Then I watercolored around the images with Coastal Cabana ink.  After that all dried, I masked the floral image and splattered some Coastal Cabana ink onto the background.  Then just added the greeting!


I really love this card and want to make more!  This is the perfect one to make because it was very therapeutic to sit down and just watercolor.  😍


I hope you enjoy this card!  And give the challenge a try!  Can't wait to see what you make!

It's Guy Time!

Day 3 of the  #30daycardmakingchallenge, and it's all about the guys!  I can't say that I came up with the most masculine project, but it's simple and bold with some fun pops of color.  And I made it for my husband, and I think he will like it.  😀  So I am taking that as a win!  One note...I took a little liberty and made a tag instead of a card today.  A tag is just a one sided card, so I think it works still, right?! 


SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my STORE!)

Colors: Poppy Parade, Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, Basic Black
Inks:  Soft Sea Foam, StazOn Jet Black, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers:  Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Bermuda Bay
Stamps: Tropical Chic, Seriously the Best
Tools: Heat Tool, Hole Punch
AccessoriesWhite Stampin' Emboss Powder, Black 1/2" Satin Ribbon

I really do love the Tropical Chic Stamp Set.  It works for so many occasions! 


This was so quick and simple to make.  Just stamped the tag, and then added a strip of Bermuda Bay cardstock.  Then I just embossed the greeting on a strip of Poppy Parade cardstock and I was done!


And here is the official challenge graphic for you:


Can't wait to see what you make!

Simple Rainbow Thanks...

I am so excited!  My dear friend, over at MARTIN'S MAYHEM, has started a 30-day card making challenge!!!!  And yes...I am TOTALLY playing along!  Who is with me?!  🙋  It is going to be so much fun to have something uplifting and creative to focus on while we are all quarantined!  Then you have a cute card done that you can send someone to brighten their day!  Seems perfect, right?!  The first challenge is A Simple Thank You.  So here we go!

I used a fun stamp from Tasteful Textures Stamp Set and made a rainbow with it!  I'm sorry...I just can't stop doing "rainbow" themed things these days.  That seems to be the only color combo that comes to my mind!  Haha.  But this card is just simple stamping, splattering, and then embellishing.  It really just took me a few mins to make and is so cheery and happy!  I hope you enjoy! 

Here are a few more pics...

Thoughtful Blooms Rainbow...

AHHHHH!  I made a card today!  🙌 I have to admit...I have been STRUGGLING with all this worry/virus/shut-in/change/canceling/etc.  Motivation hasn't be the easiest for me.  BUT...I promised I would craft today, so I went to my craft room.  It just took going into my room for me to remember why I needed to do this today!  It definitely gave my heart a boost and I am excited I have a card to share with you today!!


SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my STORE!)

Colors: Melon Mambo, Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, Whisper White, Basic Black
Inks:  Melon Mambo, Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Vellum, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper
Stamps: Thoughtful Blooms, Thanks for the Laughs
Tools: Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Small Blooms Punch, Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder, Heat Tool, Aqua Painter
AccessoriesGlitter Enamel Dots, Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, White Stampin' Emboss Powder

Rainbow was the one thing that came to my mind to do.  We all need a little hope right now, right?!  And that's what rainbows are for me...a sign of hope that there is light after the storm.  💖


So how did I make this rainbow?!  Well I used this fabulous Sale-A-Bration stamp set called, Thoughtful Blooms.  I have used this stamp set A TON, but have mostly used the flowers.  This time I used this stamp:

Don't you just LOVE this stamp set!  Just a few more days to earn it FREE!!!!  Or any of the other Sale-A-Bration options!!!  Click below to check them all out!!!  Including the Small Bloom Punch that I also used on this card.  I LOVE LOVE this too!!! 😍😍😍



So I stamped the image in rainbow order...inking it up with a different color each time.  Then after, I took an Aqua Painter and colored in the image with the same color I stamped it with.  (In order ... Melon Mambo, Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape)  Then I also embossed a piece of Vellum Cardstock with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder and sewed it onto the front of the card.


I also really love this ribbon, the Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon from the 
MINI CATALOG.  Personally...I think it is the perfect touch to this card. 


And how much fun are the fun white blooms?  😀


I hope you enjoy this card!  And feel that there is a little hope that this craziness will end at some point.  Please stay safe and healthy!  Let me know if there is anything I can do for you!

Seriously The Best Blends Rainbow...

I saw a card today created by the FABULOUS Melody Hyde (over at @hammondandpenny) that had a rainbow made with Blends Markers.  Well I LOVED...
