Hello Spring.... ? Wonderful Wednesday Kraftin Kimmie Stamps

Yep - you read that right.... Hello Spring! haha! Even though we are heading into Fall, I thought these cute little critters needed some love.
All supplies are listed below

Today's card is for the Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Wonderful Wednesday Challenge so break out those stamps and play along for a chance at a prize! Be sure to head over to the blog for more information! Lots of fun stuff going on with Kraftin Kimmie Stamps ! Don't miss it  ! 

I started off creating my background with some distress oxide inks. I used Seedless Preserve, Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean. I blended them together on Bristol Smooth cardstock and then spritzed it with some water using my Tim Holtz Distress Spray bottle. I trimmed this piece down with the Blueprint 29 Die for the stitched border. I stamped the sentiment using my Misti tool and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Then layered the distressed panel onto some some white cardstock and then that with foam before adhering to my cardbase. 

Next, I stamped my images on some Neenah White Cardstock, colored them with copic markers and cut them out with my Scan N Cut. I also cut this beautiful Flower Circle from the Flower Circle Die. I added this to my card using some Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive because it has such a fine tip.

I then added my cute critters into the middle of my flower circle. 

For some finishing touches, I added the Like Magic sequin from Neat & Tangled and Black Ebony Nuvo Drops. I couldn't stop myself and added Silver Moondust Nuvo Drops to the centers of the flowers of the circle die cut. I also touched up my eyes and nose on my critters with Ebony Black & Shocking Pink Nuvo Drops. Can you tell I just love my Nuvo drops!? 

I hope you enjoyed today's card!

Boho Flowers & watercolors - Gina K Designs

I finally got a chance  to sit down and play with the Boho Flowers mini kit from Gina K Designs. This is a great card kit package. It contains everything you need to create beautiful cards. I think it took me so long to play with because the hoarder in me had a hard time cutting into any of the cardstock lol. 

I will have the supplies listed down below and I have a video for this to share as well. 

I started with stamping my butterflies from the Boho Flowers stamp set onto some Tim Holtz watercolor paper using Simon Says Stamp Clear Ink and using Gina K Designs white embossing powder. 

Next, I created the watercolor background using my Gansai Tambi watercolors. I have only just recently started playing with watercolors so I'm certainly no professional but they are a lot of fun. I wet my paper first and then applied splashes of blues and greens. I heat set that and then applied a darker color blue all over the top. Similar to how a galaxy background would be created but with different colors.

Then I added some black, pearl and white flicks of paint to the background drying each one in between so they don't mix. My sentiment I also stamped and heat embossed. The word "YOU" is stamped in Gina K Designs Black Onyx Ink and cut out with the coordinating die which I added using foam squares.

My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #346

I'm squeezing in a couple challenges and projects before I leave for a trip later this week. This post is for the sketch challenge over at My Favorite Things.

I had done some playing around with a watercolor background using Tim Holtz Watercolor cardstock and Gansai Tambi watercolor set. I'm not real experienced with watercolors so it was fun to play around with creating the galaxy.

Once the galaxy was dry, I die cut it from the Gina K Circle Small Double Stitched Die. My stitched frame border is from the My Favorite Things Single Stitched Rounded Rectangle Die. My little pirate I thought would be perfect for this and she is from the Party Like A Pirate Set. The finishing touch was adding a few drops of the Nuvo Drops - they glitter so it reminded me of stars! All supplies are listed down below.

More Spring Flowers - Simon Says Stamp

I know it's not Spring and Summer is coming to an end but I just had to play around with this stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. It has this gorgeous stitched looked to the elements.  All the supplies will be listed down below as well as a video.

I stamped a few of the larges roses with Memento Desert Sand onto Neenah Solar White cardstock. Then added some of the  daisies from this stamp set to fill in the gaps. I trimmed that piece down using Blueprint 29 die which added a nice stitched border to match my flowers.

The rose and leaves I stamped onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp clear ink and heat embossed with Simon Says Stamp white embossing powder. I ink blended abandoned coral distress ink on the rose and twisted citron and mowed lawn distress ink for the leaves. Then I fussy cut  them out (yep I know you heard me ... I fussy cut them lol)

My sentiment is from the Simple Sentiments stamp from CZDesign and I stamped that onto black cardstock with the Simon Says Stamp clear ink and heat embossed with the Simon Says Stamp White Embossing Powder. I added the flower and leaves to my card and foam mounting the sentiment. My finishing touch is adding some Nuvo Crystal Morning Dew Drops. 

I also have a video for this card so be sure to check it out so to see what I did for the inside!
