Two for Tuesday

This is the second installment of two for Tuesday where I use the same stamp or die on 2 different cards.
 This week I'm using MFT Floral Focus stamp set. 

For this first card I colored the flowers in monochromatic shades and cut it out using the coordinating die cut.  I then added a little bit of color for contrast to the card base. 

On this next card, I stamped the same image with Inkon3 fadeout ink onto watercolor paper and  used my Kuretake Gansai watercolors. 
   Enjoy your week.

Busy Weekend

Good morning and happy Monday. 
Hope you all had a great weekend.  Thankfully, I was able to spend almost the entire weekend in my craft room.  
I've been cleaning and organizing.  What a difference it makes!  I feel like I have room to breathe.

Now for some of the cards I worked on last week.

This first card I made to enter into the Simon Says Stamp Flickr group. 
It's pretty simple.  I just made the background using alcohol pearl ink on Yupo paper .  
 I cut the Mod Leaf Oval twice from 80# card stock and glued them together to add a little dimension.  I then carefully heat embossed the sentiment using white Brutus Monroe embossing powder.

During my cleaning, I re-discovered a lot of 6x6 paper packs that I have squirreled away.  I was bound and determined use it on at least one card.
I stamped and slightly modified the boot from Honey Bee Stamps Oh my Wiskers.  I colored it with Copic markers and cut it out using my Brother Scan n Cut.  I added foam tape to the colored images to add some dimension.

This last card was actually quick to put together.  I love these multi stamping sets from The Greetery.  They require no coloring, just a couple different ink colors.  The sentiment set Written in Ribbon,  is the same concept.  I stamped it once using It's a Girl light pink ink, then again with the second stamp in a darker ink.

If you have any questions, be sure to leave me a comment otherwise have a great week!

Two for Tuesday

Hello my friends
Today is Two for Tuesday

What is Two for Tuesday? For the next few Tuesdays, my posts will highlight 2 cards made with the stamp or die.


I'm starting off this series with the 

The background on this first card was made using alcohol pearl ink on vellum yupo paper.  I simply cut the design out , added a simple sentiment, and a few jewels.

Using the negative pieces of the die, I made this second card.  This took quite a bit of time to get all the pieces back in place. Once I did, I used Press and Seal to keep them all in place.  Then I just glued it to the panel colored with Kutetake Pearl watercolors. 


Thank you for stopping by.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day my friends.

Today I want to show you this adorable digital image from PolkaDoodles.  It was a free download last week. 
I had plenty of Valentine's cards so I decided to add a sentiment that could be used any time of the year.
The gnomes were colored with Copic marker and cut it out used my Brother Scan n Cut.  I ink blending the background using this stencil from Sugar Pea.   Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp in a light pink, then moved the  paper slightly to the left and stamped again with the darker pink. 

To finish off the card, I used  clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush of the large hearts 

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Welcome February

Good morning.  Today I wanted to show off a couple cards that I made this weekend.  

Again I'm using one of my favorite stamps to color for The Ton, Transformation.  The possibilities are endless with this one

On this card, I used another set from The Ton, Peony Duo, colored with Arteza Gouache.  On the background I used  Catherine Pooler Perfect Vine stencil, Distress Ink, and splatters of gold paint.  I then die cut leaves from The Greetery and My Favorite Things and highlighted them with gold Nuvo Mousse. 

Hope you have a great week.
