Sunflowers and smiles just seem to go together perfectly.  This card features the newly released Sunflower Stamp set.  Its just beautiful and so great to colour. I used my Derwent Coloursoft pencils and added a few white dots to the centre.  I finished it off with a few Moonbeams sequins also just released, this mix is an absolute must have.  It just adds that extra little bit of sparkle.

So here's a smile from me to you !!!

Love and Laughter,

Amazing Roses

Hello! Rachel here with some inspiration for you featuring the always lovely Splendid Roses stamp set!

I've colored up these gorgeous roses in all sorts of colors so far, but I haven't done any classic red yet! I had to remedy that with this card. I stamped the image in each corner and then colored them in with my Copics. I used R35, R37, and R39 for my reds and YG95, YG97, and YG99 for my greens. I added my ever-present gray halo around them using C00, C1, and C3. I add that halo because it really makes the image pop from the white paper and look 3 dimensional. It looks scary when you first start adding the gray, but trust me, it makes a world of difference! I finished by cutting my panel down with a Wonky Stitched rectangle die and then adding my sentiment in heat embossed gold. It's simple, but effective!

Hello everyone it's me Jessica and I wanted to share with you this card I made. I love this rose stamp set it's the Splendid Roses from Kennedy Grace Creations. I have to admit I love flower stamps I want to make every card with them lol. I have color them with a lot of different mediums but watercoloring has defiantly been challenging. So I will push through and continue to work at it. I recently got some watercolor pencils and that has been a lot easier to work with. ( I guess I'm a control freak.) But I'm happy to report that I have been enjoying watercoloring and you will defiantly see more.

Now on to the card...

I used Arches Cold press watercolor paper and then embossed the image from Splendid Roses and used my Derwent Ink Intense pencils to color. I then die cut the Scalloped background from the new Cutting Edge Scalloped Dies. I embossed the sentiment from the the new Just a Rose stamp set. Really simple I didn't want to take away from the image so I didn't add any embellishments.

Leave me a comment and let me know if you would like to see videos on me watercoloring with my new pencils I have been thinking about doing some but not sure if anyone would watch them.

Thanks a bunch for stopping by....

One Layered Card - Featuring Kennedy Grace Creations: Time To Blossom

Hey folks!

I'm back to share a card from the Kennedy Grace Creations New Release! The stamp set I used today is the Time To Blossom Stamp Set.

I really enjoyed the simplicity of this set. You could totally heat emboss this and do some fabulous watercoloring, but Copic's seems to be the way to go for me lately so that's what I did.

I started by stamping the image twice on my card panel. The only masking I did was a tiny bit on the stem. The name of the game was to keep this super simple folks.

As I said, I colored the images with Copic's. Another thing I enjoy about the Time To Blossom Stamp Set is that you could choose any colors you wanted. I chose red-violets and yellow-greens, but seriously peeps, whatever floats your boat and it will looks great!

To finish off my card, I used a added a couple of hand drawn lines to the background and I stamped a portion of a stamp that is also in the Time To Blossom Stamp Set.

That's it! Easy peasy.

Thanks so much for stopping by to see me and as always I hope you enjoyed my card today!

Until next time!

Announcing Just a Rose Stamp set

Welcome to day 3 of the designer showcase featuring Just a Rose stamp set.   I love love love this image.  Just look how many ways it can be used.  All the Glam squad did such an amazing job! 

 First we have Cammy she did the first two card you wouldn't believe me if I told you, but the embossing powder is the exact same on both of her cards.  I know right!  I would not have ever thought that at all.  But it is.  How cool is that???

 Chera did the next three cards.  She used the same stamp and but changed how she colored them and they are are same placement but look how different they are.  Just awesome!

 Monica did this beautiful blue one.  I just love the blue blooms so different and the blue is just stunning. 

We hope you have gotten some ideas that make you look at your supplies differently!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for day 4!
