Global Design Project #202

Hello! I'm back with another sketch challenge and another post!! This time I'm playing along with the Global Design Project sketch challenge. You can find the challenge HERE.

Another fun sketch challenge. I used one of my new favorites....Good Morning Magnolia bundle. The flower in this set is just to die for. I love coloring it!

I watercolored the flower using an aquapainter and various inks: Flower - Petal Pink, Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick; Leaves - Soft Sea Foam, Granny Apple Green and Coastal Cabana; Stem - Sahara Sand and Early Espresso. Once everything was dry, I added some splatters using my Crumb Cake marker. I really love how you can quickly add color to the flower and it looks so great.

The Coastal Cabana background piece was embossed with the Tin Tile embossing folder. I then used a strip of DSP from the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP. I also added some gold touches with Gold Glimmer paper and Gold foil sheets.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope this flower brightens your day.

TGIF Challenge #224

Hello! Happy Monday!! I am playing along with the TGIF Challenge this week. It's been a long time since I've played along with these challenges. This week is a fun sketch challenge. I love doing sketch challenges. Check out the challenge HERE.

I did something fun and used the Dino Days Bundle. Isn't this dino so cute!?! I had some googly eyes lying around so I used those too. They might be a little big for this guy but I think they make him look funny!

I stamped and die cut these images in lots of bright colors.This would be perfect for a kids birthday.

This is a short post today but this was a fun challenge. Stop by TGIF Challenges and check it out.

Have a great day!

You're Udderly Fabulous!

Hello there! Miss me?? This summer has just been flying by and I haven't been able to get into my craft room to do some card making. Sure I've had some time in the evenings some nights but lately all I want to do is just go for a swim after work and then veg out on the couch.

I have been missing crafting though and I had some time this weekend so I went downstairs and got to work! I actually found the time to make 2 cards, so I'll have something else to share this week! I feel like I go in spurts where I'm making a bunch of cards and then I'll go a month or 2 without doing anything. Let's hope I can keep this pace up and not take such a long break!

For this card, I used one of the new sets from the catalog called Over the Moon. I just love these cows. They are so cute and fun to color in. I colored them in various Stampin Blends.

The background behind the cows is watercolored with Granny Apple Green and Balmy Blue ink. After it dried, I stamped the little grass image. Isn't that so cute!? I then stamped the Buffalo Check stamp in Crumb Cake ink on to white paper, which I then embossed with the Subtle embossing folder.

To finish off the card I used the 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots in Purple Posy. I did go a little crazy and add a few of them. The reason I did that is because I ended up with 2 packages of these dots. I obviously liked them so much, I forgot that I ordered them 2 different times, ha! Ooopps! Oh well, they are very nice and I might as well use them right? instead of hoarding them.

What do you think? Have you ordered this set yet? Is it on your wishlist?

Thanks for stopping by!
