Zig watercoloring

Oh my, I do adore this massive succulent from Altenew (mega succulent) and to be completely honest? I colored it with Zig Clean Clear Brushes a L-O-N-G time ago but never finished it into a card!

I had a sweet friend having a birthday, she loves succulents, so voila, it finally made itself into a card...alright, alright, I helped make it into a card.

I used the amazing SSS This is the Life die to create the gold frame - but I swear, I can never do anything with shiny gold or silver card stock without getting smudges on it...I should have used tweezers to place it!

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a GREAT week!

Tripe Time Stamping at Mix It Up

Hi friends - welcome back to another fun challenge at the Mix It Up blog; this month it is Triple Time Stamping (or you can do anything goes, as always); seriously, so many fun options with the triple time stamping - we really hope you will join us!

It took a few tries to get this one finished; I've honestly never done triple time stamping. #truth
I know, how is that possible!?!

I LOVE this peony stamp set from Altenew; it has so many gorgeous flowers, leaves and little odds & ends you can add to your card. I stamped the leaves in varying brown colors for something different and used oxide inks for the flowers and berries; I just adore how they turned out. I matted the panels on to some Summer Sunrise card stock and mounted everything on a Raspberry Fizz card base.

Trying to catch the sparkle; might have to click on it to see

I will definitely be trying this technique again; I love how it turned out and want to try a few other options.

Pocket Full of Tags

This month at the Love to Scrap challenge blog, we are playing Shape Shift, hope you join us! I had a friend ask for a variety of things recently, so when I saw Laurie's tag set, I just HAD to CASE it - I love it so much! And I pretty much CASE'd every single piece! :D

We are sponsored this month by The Paper Shelter; please stop by and take a look at all their fabulous creations! They are also offering 3 free digis to the winner, so PLAY ALONG!!

I had recently purchased the Kaisercraft die cut set and loved the colors; and it made creating the tags so quick and easy!

I blended Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Barn door on the front of the card; for the tags I used Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, and Picked Raspberry; then I covered all that up with the die cuts. LOL!!

I used some older MFT tags that appear to no longer be available, but any tag shapes will work! I left the back side blank so any message can be included.

Thanks for stopping by; hope you can join us at Love to Scrap!
