Let it snow

Hello and welcome back. 
Today I've got a mix of products starting with two of the main products. The first being the beautiful Stamptember Simon Says Stamp with Pretty Pink Posh: Skiing Bear ,Bundle stamp and dies.  The second product is from Concord and 9th, the gorgeous Quilted Card front die, in their Ballet slipper cardstock. 

On the close up you can see that I've got a lot of color on my card, i used various copics to color my images from the stamp set.  The hills are from white 80lb cardstock and Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside borders dies.

I really happy how it came out and hope you like it too!

Have a beautiful day!

Altenew Educators "Alphabet Name Game" Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway

Hello and back to another blog hop with Altenew Educators and Friends! 
Wow, this hop is so amazing! Did you see what Pam did on her blog, its simply gorgeous! 

Since the challenge was to create with the first letter, I used easy peasy water coloring with embossing. I started by stamping my Inky Lily Stamp with Cool Summer Nights Oval Inks: Desert Night color. Then using the Artist Watercolors 24 Half Pan and water I added a bit of purple color. Using a small paint brush I was able to blend the colors and the ink together. Its easy peasy! I added some Pure White ink spray on top.   

Next is the beautiful Enchanted Vines 3D embossing folder, I did it on White 80 cardstock. If you look closely you will notice that bit of Deep Iris card stock to breakup all of the white. 

Finally are the finishing touches and the sentiment. I used the Sentiment Strips which is a personal fav of mine. The Cool Summer Nights enamel dots the perfect way to top any card off. 

I loved the new watercolors, in minutes I was able to give my floral a watercolor look and feel without al the fuss. I hope you like it. 

Up next is Terri and she is the queen of gorgeous things! IMHO! :)

Autumn Gold

 Hello and welcome back! Today I am sharing a card and envelope combo!

 Starting with my stamp set from Altenew: Autumn Bounty I used lots of Copics to color it in. I also used some Antique Gold embossing powders on the Kraft Envelope.

 I also used the same Antique Gold embossing powder on the the sentiment, Fall in Love!

I started by coloring in my images, pumpkin, florals and then greenery. My stuff is everywhere and I could not find my Artist Markers, before starting this project, so I did use Copics. 

Next, is selecting the cardstock. Since I already had gold, I knew adding some more would make this design pop, so I went with Navy for the background and gold for the back layer...

I hope you enjoy todays card and envelope combo!
