You are a wonderful friend

Hi everyone,

For Day 11 of thedailymarker30day challenge @ Kathy Racoosin I have a card that I made using Prismacolor Premier colored pencils. Also including this in the Simon Says Stamp Flickrchallenge99 where the theme is coloring in honor of Kathy's 10th challenge.

I stamped the tiger lily with intense black ink and coloured it using pencils in various colours.

I added a black die cut striped background to the base of my card and adhered the tiger lily with foam tape to which I had added some stickles to the centre of the flower.

Die cut the you word from gold cardstock and stamped the sentiment in between the lines of the frame with black ink.

Added some gold heart accents and that completed my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hi everyone,

Today I have a fun shaker card to share that I created using a stencil.

I started by creating the 3 background pieces using a Neat and Tangled stencil and 3 different colours of Distress Inks and then cut the pieces the size that would fit behind each window.

I added a black piece of cardstock to my card base and attached each coloured piece behind each window. I then die cut the frame and added a piece of acetate and foam tape to created my shaker.

Small crystals and sequins were added to the shaker.

I die cut the sentiment using black cardstock and adhered that directly to my window base.

Well that's it for this card and thanks so much for stopping by.

Friends forever

Hi everyone,

I'm a little behind with thedailymarker30day colouring challenge by Kathy Racoosin but I do have a card to share which I created using Studio Katia products and distress inks for Day 5.

I started by blending my background using Worn Lipstick, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Festive Berries distress inks.

When I was finished the blending I stamped the Best Friends image over the entire panel with Extreme black ink from My Favorite Things. I then ran the panel through my diecutting machine using the Dotted Patterns: Loops die.

I then proceeded to place all the stamped images into the proper places popping some up with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of black cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Well that's it for my card and thanks so much for stopping by.

Glitter Weave

Hi everyone,

Today I have a card using Altenew's Weave Builder stencil and some Nuvo glimmer paste for an embossed effect.
Also entering this in the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge where the theme is 'Anything Goes' here and also their Flickr challenge of 'Embossing'.

Here's my card:

I first started by applying Fossilized Amber distress oxide ink to the first part of the stencil layering.
I turned the stencil and applied the second layer which was Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink.

When that was complete I laid the stencil back down so that the Peacock Feathers colour was exposed. Then I proceeded to add Nuvo glimmer paste to the stencil. Unfortunately the lovely sparkle doesn't show through in the phote. I set that aside to dry and once dry I ran the panel through my die cut machine using the Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die set.

I then moved onto creating the sentiment by diecutting it 3 times in white, turquoise and yellow cardstock and stacked the 3 pieces on top of each other and gluing them in place slightly offset from each other.

I added some sequins and a Nuvo crystal drop over the 'i".

Well that's it for my card and thanks so much for stopping by.

Hi everyone,

Well it's a beautiful warm day, the sun is shining and I've been for my power walk. Life is good. Now it's time to post a card that I made for the current Watercolor challenge at A Blog Named Hero here.

Here's my card:

I started by stamping the Hero Arts Large Open Flower stamp with white embossing powder and heat setting.

I moved onto colouring each of the little petals of the flower with 2 different colours of Peerless Watercolors and blending them with a water brush. When I was finished that I decided to die cut the flower image using a Fancy Frames Circles die from Sunny Studio Stamps which fit perfectly around my image.

I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and white heat embossed onto die cut banner. The card base was covered with an orange panel on which I also stamped the flower image randomly with Versamark ink.

Added foam tape to the flower and sentiment and applied to my card base.

I used some Little Things from Lucy's Cards to add a little sparkle.

Well that's it for my card and thanks so much for stopping by.
