Wedding Shower Congrats

Jessie's wedding shower card

Hi friends  It’s not a secret to my friends and coworkers that I’m crazy for owls.  I had my eye on this Stampn’ Up! punch since it came out and finally broke down and bought it.  There are so many ideas on Pinterest using this punch.  When I saw this card, I knew I wanted to CASE it for a wedding shower I’m attending this Sunday.

One of my coworkers generously bought me an owl bracelet and owl stickums for my stamp room wall.

Are you crazy for owls or are you tired of this long-standing trend?

Get Well Dear Friend

Whisped Frames

Hi folks!  Did you know Pat Huntoon, owner of the Technique Junkie Newsletter bought Stamp Camp and is now called Technique Junkies Stamps.  I fell in love with this cute little bird on a flourish branch.  I coloured the stamp with Tombow markers and spritzed the stamp with water to wet the markers and then stamped out my image.  The background stamp is also from Technique Junkies Stamps.

I used the Whisped Frames technique which is what surrounds the outline of the die.  I find that this technique really enhances an image, don’t you?

I have a dear friend who is sick so I wanted to create a Get Well card for her.  I made an second card so Pat can put it on display in her trade shows.

Thanks for stopping by.

Glimmer Lace Jewellery Box

When I set out to make a jewellery box, it was difficult to decide how to decorate it.  I found this adorable flower over at Sweet and Sassy Stamps called April Daisies.  I know, daisies aren’t really this colour, but I needed my flowers to coordinate with my glimmer mist background that I made for the Technique Junkie Newsletter.

Enjoy your stamp, and happy stamping!

Black Eyed Susan

Black-Eyed Susan’s are one of my favourite flowers.  Daisies, no matter the colour, really appeal to me.

This is another in my series of watercolours, painted with Tombow markers.

Happy stamping!

Summer Cottage Time

Hello fellow stampers.  Are you familiar with Stampscapes stamps?   This time I layered the center part of my card at the highest point, and the outer edge at the highest point.

The look of this card is achieved by lightly taping down Nestabilities with two way tape.  After running my image through the Cuttlebug I gently pulled off the tape.  Whalaa, done.

Gradient Sponging

Technique Junkie Newsletter, Gradient Sponging

Hello friends.  I hope you’re having a good week.  The weather is showing signs of summer–finally, and with that my mojo is coming back.  Yipee.

I took creative liberty in using the Gradient Sponging technique from the Technique Junkie Newsletter.  When I decided on using this stamp, I decided to make it look like a sunset.  I think I’ll make more of these and add and mask a sunset.  What do you think?

Have a great week!

Layered Sunflower

Layered Die Cuts 12, finished card, MFP, Resized

Howdy friends.  Today I have a layered sunflower card to share with you.  I used Spellbinders Labels 2 to make all my layers using a monochromatic colour scheme.  My sunflower image is from Mark’s Finest Papers.  I coloured my image with Copic markers, and added twine for some interest.

I hope you have a nice weekend.  Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!
