Rainbow Mom

I created a couple variations of this card - I absolutely love it! Do you?

I used Karin markers to create the watercolor background. First, I created the green at the bottom, spritzed with water and let it run a bit; then I created the rainbow at the top, spritzed with water and allowed the colors to run much further down into the green area. I stamped the TE Beautiful Blossom flowers with Gina K Obsidian ink. I added some Copic coloring to each flower then added a heavy coat of  Nuvo Shimmer (which actually made the flowers a bit white, which looks rather cool I thought).

Once the inks, watercolor and shimmer were dry, I die cut the word MOM from PTI Smokey Shadow multiple times and one time from the main panel and layered them together. I then stamped and embossed the Happy Mother's Day sentiment in VersaFine ink and clear embossing powder. I layered the panel onto PTI true black and added a scalloped white panel to the inside.

Thanks for stopping by; hope you are having a great week!

Colour Crazy - Conie Fong Art

Hi friends - hope you are doing well, staying safe and healthy!

This week we are featuring Conie Fong Art, so many cute images!! I am using the Bunnie Hearts Girl; isn't she adorable? I can think of so many uses for this image!

I enjoyed coloring with Copics and adding glossy accents to all the balloons. Seriously peeps - does ANYONE else have issues with their glossy accents bottle clogging? It was brutal covering all the balloons and I ended up with tons of bubbles. :( Bummer!

I shaded the edges with TE Sea Salt and Confetti Cake; layered on top of several pieces of designer paper as well as a couple stitched square frames.  The sentiment is from the TE Valentine Mini Strips; but I thought it worked perfectly!

Thanks for stopping by; hoping you can join us this week with anything you color - we enjoy visiting and commenting on your creations!

Take care,


Stamps:  Conie Fong Art Bunnie Hearts Girl, TE Valentine Mini Strips

MIUCB #37 - Anything Goes or Masking

Hi friends - how is April treating you...beyond kinda crazy? I still work in our office 1-2 days per week, the rest are from home and you would think that allows for more down time, but I can promise you, it does not!

There is a small chance I was hoping working from home would allow me some craft time - maybe at lunch; but once I get started working, I just keep moving ahead! I don't have a great work space, so I use a lap desk and love it, but I literally have to force myself to get up and MOVE!!!

This month at Mix It Up, we are focusing on masking...or as always, anything goes!  I hope you will take time to join us, we enjoy seeing what you are creating!

This month, I'm showing two different cards - same 'gist' of a card, just different colors. I have really loved these stamp sets (pretty postmarks and signed and sealed, from The Greetery - and the dies (postal frames and signed and sealed), you'll see the postal die coming up in several more cards I made recently.

I water colored the background - mainly just the edges and then tossed together lots of die cuts I had on my desk. When doing multi-layering stamping, I like to make LOTS of extras, makes it easy to throw together a card last minute. I stamped a different greeting on each and mounted to the base card with fun foam. These cards were 100% inspired by Betsy Veldman, owner of The Greetery.

Thanks for stopping by; be sure to stop by the Mix It Up blog to see all the design team creations, then take the time to join the fun!

LTSCB #133 - Anything Goes

It's everyone's favorite challenge - ANYTHING GOES - at Love to Scrap challenge; hope you will check out all the fun creations from the design team and then join us, we love seeing your creations!

I just love smooshing inks for a background, the background made thiscard so easy to create! The Welcome Little One die and image is from Taylored Expressions. I layered up the die cuts with 4 layers of card stock and adhered them together; you can't see, but I added clear wink of stella to the top later. The image was colored with Copics. Pretty simple, but a great baby boy card.

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a great day!
