March 2018 Release with Sweet Stamp Shop ....

Hello Everyone!! 
Hope you are all having a fantastic day so far!! 

I am stopping by today to share a couple of cards. 
I know it feels like I am taking a bit since I shared my last project...
I have a great reason <3... I knew it was time to clean and declutter my 
craft room (believe me I was putting it off as long as I could, lol ). 
I didn't realize how big of a task it would turn out to of those 
where you create a bigger mess than you started with, lol! 

Well here I am and I am still not all the way done, but the majority is done,
I am super happy with how it is coming along so far. 

For the cards I created to share with you today I used the brand new 
Sweet Stamp Shop March 2018 Release. It is available in the bundle 
package today, you can find it here if you would like to see what is included.

I was excited to play with the goodies from this release... Sweet Stamp now carries dies!! 
They have lots of fun new interactive ones and the must-haves for creating your cards!! 

I began by using Distress Inks to create the backgrounds of my cards. Can you tell I
was having lots of fun with the unicorns?! I used different color combinations to change
the look of each of the cards. 

I hope you enjoy and feel inspired to create!! 
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Praying you have a wonderful and Blessed day!

Have An Out Of This World Birthday ........

Happy Thursday everyone! 
I am so happy to be sharing another 
project that I had a blast creating this week. 
Have you had a chance to see the adorable new 
Lawn Fawn Release?  It is full of cuteness! 

For my cards today I used the brand new Beam Me Up. 
This set has the cutest aliens! 

I also had to use the Slide On Over Semi-Circles dies 
with these cards. I think they go together perfectly! 

I also used the Starry Skies, Puffy Clouds, Stitched Star Frames 
along with the Large Cross Stitched Rectangles dies set to create these. 
On my wish list is the Pivot Pop-Up die that is currently sold out. 
This is my first pivot pop up card and believe me I need the die set. 

I used Copic markers to color in my cute aliens and spaceships. 
I used BG15,34, 11, 0000 for the mint color. For the blues I used 
B28,24, 21 and a bit of B95. For the orange areas, I used YR68,07, Y35, and Y32.

I also used the You're Claw-some stamp set along with the Beam Me Up set. 
I hope you are having a wonderful week! 
Thank you so much for stopping by! 
Wishing a Blessed day!

You ARRR Amazing .........

Hello and Happy Tuesday everyone! 
I hope you are having a wonderful week so far. 
I am stopping by today to share this set of 
cards I created. 

I began with creating my background for the mermaid card first. 
I used alcohol inks to create the "ocean" background. 
I used Yupo paper and the colors of the alcohol inks 
were Patina, Pool, and Stream. 

I tried some no line coloring, using my Copic markers. 
I still need practice but I enjoyed it. For my mermaids tail 
I used BG09, 49, 78,75,72 and BG70. For the mermaids
top, I used R22, 21, 20 and R00. 

For my pirate card, I used the same BG Copic colors. 
For the green areas, I used YG17, 13, and G20. 

I hope you enjoy these fun cards! 
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by! 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day!

YAY.... I'm Back~ Woo-Hoo!!

Hello everyone!!
I am SUPER excited to be back today with another post!!
Today is release day at Sweet Stamp Shop!!
YAY !!! The bundles are available today and you can find them here.

For the first set of cards, I used the adorable raccoon 
(that is a freebie as part of today's bundle). Along with the bear
that is a freebie for January's bundle( that one is available here ).
I added flowers to the bottom of my Miss You card from
the Wear A Crown stamp set. 
I love this set so much I also used it my planner spread.
The sentiment is from the To Do Doodles stamp set.

These images are super fun and quick to color!!! 
I used Copic markers for the cards and brush markers for the planner spread.
I switch out between the Tombow brand to Zig. 
For this spread, I used the Brea Reese water-based markers in the colors Cadmium Red 
and Pink.

For the next card, I used another set that is part of this months bundle. 

 I hope you enjoy these fun cards I created to share with you!! 

I also have another watercolor card I created using another Hero Arts stamp set. 

For this card, I used Winsor&Newton watercolor markers. 
I used the colors Pale Rose, Magenta, and Mauve.
For the greens, I used Sap Green, Hooker's Green, and a bit of Yellow Ochre. 

Thank you so very much for stopping by!! 
I pray you each have a wonderful and Blessed day!!

Happy Valentine's Day .....

Hello everyone!! 
Happy Valentine's Day!! 
I wanted to stop by and share the Valentine's 
my son and I created (he is in kindergarten) for 
his class. 

I hope you are all doing awesome! 
I have been crafting... just at a much slower pace. 
I have been doing a bit of everything, 
I will be sharing photos with you as soon as I take them <3. 
I am enjoying creating with different stamps and using different
coloring mediums. I am also LOVING creating in my travel journal.
It is something I had been wanting to do for awhile. 

I do have lots of photos to share with you today. 
I have been participating in the wonderful 30 Day Coloring Challenge. 
I did not post every day, I accumulated them to share altogether. 

To begin with here are the Valentines for my son Anthony's class. 
I used my Silhouette to cut the treat bags and create the design 
for the front of them. 

For the second project, I am sharing with you 
I colored this pirate and mermaid from My Favorite Things. 

For the next card, I came across these interesting inks from
Brea Reese. 
They are glitter inks. I love the Raw Umber color and that is what I used for the flowers. 
For the blue areas, I used the 
Ultramarine Blue.
The sparkle in these is super pretty. 

I hope you enjoy these projects I created to share with you today! 
Thank you so very much for taking the time to stop by! 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day!

You're So Sweet With Lawn Fawn .......

Hi everyone!! 
Happy Wednesday! 
I am back today to share the images 
I colored for Day 3 of the coloring challenge. 

It took me a bit to decide what I would be coloring today ...
I can't tell you how long that part took me. 
I need to plan ahead if I want to get my photos taken with
the correct light, lol! 

I went with the super adorable Sweet Smiles stamp set 
from Lawn Fawn (I don't think I've used this before). 

I was inspired by the colors of the Doodlebug Sweet Things paper pad. 

I used Copics to color my images in. 
For the red areas, I used R89, R46, R27, R17, and R05 with a bit of R02. 

For my pinks, I used RV19, RV55, RV63, and RV00. 
For the mint areas, I used BG34, BG11, and BG0000. 

I then created a card and turned the little gumball machines into 
shaker tags. 

I hope you enjoy my projects for today, thank you so much for stopping by.
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day! 
GOD bless you.
