OMG I <3 U!


More fun from Online Card Class – Stenciled!

I penciled in the Mini Harlequin stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop with Inktense pencils and accented with a fun sentiment from Simon Says Stamp set “Only have eyes for you” and circle accents  from SSS “Thinking of you”.  I stamped the green background paper with Hero Arts “Friend Definition” stamp with Versamark ink and clear embossed.

Lots of stencil fun!

I think we’re going to fly up to the Grand Canyon tomorrow so I may have to catch up on “homework” on Monday!

Today’s card is for the Online Card Class – Stenciled. Awesome class with so many great ideas for using your stencils.
This card is a combination of sponging and stamping over the stencil.
More fun to come!

celebrate you!

For my friend’s birthday, I wanted to shower her with positive encouragement for the upcoming year. The Paper Smooches stamp set Group Hugs was so perfect! All of the wonderful positive wishes I wanted to extend were there. I couldn’t decide which one I wanted the most – – –  so I used lots of them!

I stamped the sentiments over the card stock and embossed with clear embossing powder. I masked off in stripes to ink the fun colors! I used Memto Luxe Ink in Dandelion, Pear Tart, Bahama Blue and Rose Bud.Celebrate was stamped on velum using the Paper Smooches Alphadot set (LOVE this set!!) and the YOU was a Simon Says Stamp die that I inked and embossed. I used the heart and drink to cover the glue dots behind the velum (shhhhhh).  I’d love to tell you where the cute drink came from but it has been in my stash for ages. I want to say it came from Michael’s but…..

I’m submitting this in the Paper Smooches challenge “anything goes” – click the link below and join in the fun!

Fun for a challenge on Splitcoast Stampers – to white emboss on Kraft card stock and color in with a watercolor or color wash technique.
I used the Hero Arts stamp Tall Flowers and the “awesome” sentiment is from the Incredible set from Technique Tuesday (Ali Edwards).
I colored using Inktense pencils and a water brush. I was really happy with the vibrancy of the colors.
Thanks for checking it out,
