Bark



Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this week's CASology challenge.  This week's cue card is bark. I knew I wanted to use my Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs stamps.  I've had them for a bit but haven't used them.  I colored this too funny guy with my Copics, I added green Nuvo to the middle of his eyes and crystal Nuvo to the badge of his collar.  Finally I added glossy accents to the rest of his eyes.  The sentiment is from Gina K's Massive Messages.  I thought it was perfect for the image!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Marbles

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this week's Mix it up Monday challenge on Stamp TV.  This week Sylvia is challenging us to play with marbles!  Funny thing, I had been thinking about doing this technique so the timing is perfect!  I used Gina's Honey Mustard and new Red Velvet.  Wow, such a gorgeous color!  I stamped the sentiment from More Massive Messages in Honey Mustard.  I watercolored the acorn from the newest Stamp TV kit with Honey Mustard and Frayed Burlap Distress ink.  Finally, the acorn and the marble background are up with fun foam.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Snow

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for the Mix it up Monday challenge on Stamp TV.  Cat's challenge is "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year", she would like us to use snow on our card.  I decided to pull out my Sentiment Holiday set and heat embossed the snowflake and star with clear embossing powder.  I then sponged Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover and Cracked Pistachio Distress inks on watercolor paper.  I spritzed a little water to blend.  The sentiment is heat embossed with silver embossing powder and I added a few sequins to finish off the card.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

so thankful

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for a few challenges.  First, I used this weeks Freshly Made Sketches, second, this weeks CASology challenge, this week's cue card is Stitch.  Finally, this weeks Mix it up Monday challenge on Stamp TV, Fair Fun.  My card doesn't look anything like a fair theme but my inspiration came from going down to the Minnesota State Fair last weekend.  We went into the Creative Arts building, it had mostly quilts, many different kinds of foods, cookies, cakes, breads, etc.  But, I found a very small display of cards!  I had no idea you could enter them!  I will keep that in mind if we ever move back!  I used my new Painted Autumn Stamp TV kit.  Love these flowers, all of them actually, they are gorgeous!
I hope you enjoy, and thanks so much for stopping by today!
