Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


This is my first entry for the SSS Wednesday "Anything Goes" Challenge #68.  I will be doing more cards using Penny Black products in the next day or two.

For this card, I started with navy cardstock, white heat embossed the images and then mixed in some traditional watercolors with white gouache since I was not using watercolor paper.  I love this quick and easy trick for watercoloring on dark colored cardstock!  I don't think this looks Christmasy-enough, so I'm going to re-do it and stamp snowflakes along with the white paint splatter so stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day :)

Emily's Card

My 9 year old wanted to play along with the Lawn Fawn challenge 'Calling All Critters'.  She loves all the Lawn Fawn stamps, and especially the critters... so ask me why she didn't use any Lawn Fawn stamps!?!?  LOL.  I do not know!  Anyway, here's her card for your viewing pleasure ;)

Thank you so much for letting her play along and have a great day!!

Thinking of You card

FINALLY getting back in the craft room, here's my card for the current Simon Says Stamp 'Stencil It' Challenge! 

I realized I am definitely in need of some stencils, I could only find ONE in my scrap room - the 6x6 Heidi Swapp "Lattice" stencil

I would also like to enter this card in the current Lawn Fawn challenge 'Calling All Critters!'

Just love this adorable unicorn and stars!  Thank you for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!

Simon Says Stamp's Technique Challenge

Hello there :)

I created this card for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!  The theme this week was "Love This Technique" and we were challenged to create something using a technique we love.  If I had more time, there's about 50 techniques I love, but this iron-off technique was the one that popped to my mind first :)

I stamped and colored the floral image with Peerless Water Colors, then masked it off and colored the background with a pretty blue color.  When it was dried, I put a piece of copy paper over top and ironed it gently to take the embossing off.  It was the first time I've ever tried it and I loved it as much as I thought I would! Yay for challenges~!!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Moxie Fab Tree Challenge!

I barely remember how to do a blog post it's been so long !!!!

Today's card was made just for fun, a day before I read about the Moxie Fab Tree-mendous Trees Challenge.  I used kraft and white ink on the edges because I wanted something soft and kind of rustic to go with the white felt tree.  The tiny buttons and gems were the only thing I could think of to decorate it with!  I tried to make a shadow under the banner, but I don't think I like the black since there's no black anywhere else on the card.  Hmmm...?

So this is my entry for the Tree-mendous Tree challenge, if you are interested in making a 'tree' project, be sure to stop by Moxie Fab World and enter along with me!  Thanks for stopping by :)
