Poppies Say Hello...

Happy Friday!  Today I am popping in with a lovely clean and simple Card created for the blog...

 (ooohhhhh look at the pretty sparkles too!)
Supplies Used:
 Poppy Garden Clear Stamp Set SS4801
 Gelly Roll White Gel Pen
 Glaze Pens 10 pack
 Wink of Stella Brush Marker CLEAR
 Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad

This card was a very easy clean and simple card to create.  I started my stamping my poppies onto my cardbase and coloring in with Colored Pencils.  I then stamped just the 3 larger flowers onto separate cardstock, colored in, and fussy cut.  Once I was done I popped them up with foam adhesive on my cardbase, and added the sentiment. I also added some sparkle with a Wink of Stella pen, as I just couldn't help myself, hehehe!

Wishing You Happiness...

Hello!  This is my second post for today, so if you would like to see my home decor house rules that I made with DCWV goodies I'd love for you to stick around and scroll down! :)

Now I'm going to share a card I created, literally just this morning!  I love trying and exploring new color combos so when i saw the newest challenge at Cupcake Inspirations I just had to get crafty...

And here was my inspiration...

Isn't this color combo just gorgeous!!!  This card was super easy to create... I started by trimming my patterned paper and then trimming the center at an angle.  I then stamped my sentiment before adhering the patterned paper.   Next I diecut the butterfly, adhered the two cuts together, added some glitter to the body and tucked it right at the top corner of the sentiment.  The enamel dots were the icing on the cake, no pun intended ( ok screw it, pun was totally intended me = dork )!

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper: Amy Tan
Stamp: Clearly BeSotted
Die: Spellbinders
Enamel Dots: Teressa Collins

Have a fabulous rest of the day and hope to see you back here tomorrow!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: The Alley Way Stamps ( Gill Friend and Something's Fishy )

To create this card I started by covering a panel with Material Paper.  Then I mixed white gesso with a blue spray mist to get a light blue and rubbed this with my finger over the center of the panel.  Next I stamped the sentiment and Dolphin on separate paper, colored and fussy cut.  Finally I adhered the Dolphin with foam adhesive, and the sentiment with glue dots onto a wheel accent.  The dew drops were the icing on the cake, hehehe!

Beautiful Inside and Out... and a Sale

Hello, and Happy Monday!!!  Today I am sharing a pretty floral mixed media card here and on The Alley Way Stamps Blog...

Supplies Used:
Stamps: The Alley Way Stamps (Say It Don't Spray It, Petal Pushers, and Flower Show)
Ink: Versafine
Gellatos: Faber Castell
Gesso: Martha Stewart
Watercolor Cardstock: Ranger
Clear Sequins: V's Sweet Ideas and Pretty Pink Posh

Sometimes it just feels good to get messy, and that is just what I did with this card today.  I started by covering watercolored cardstock with White Gesso.  Once this dried I went over the background with several gellatos, sprayed with water and blended with my finger and a paper towel.  Next I covered a second piece of watercolor paper with gesso and applied blue, purple, and green gellatos, blended with my finger and allowed it to dry.  I then stamped the background panel with my sentiment several times, and stamped the floral images on the other cardstock.  I fussy cut the flowers and leaves and adhered them with a mix of foam adhesive and Tombow Mono Glue.  Finally I dripped some purple mist with a dropper along the top and let it run down.  The clear sequins were the icing on the cake.

I was also inspired by The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge: May Flowers
