Hi there and thanks for stopping by!
I was in an auto accident yesterday so didn't get a chance to post this one.
It uses the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches
and the color combo from The Color Throwdown
This was a simple card to make with minimal stamping and lots of white space
Stamp Set: Kinda Eclectic (Stampin Up)
Sentiment: Gifts Of Kindness (Stsmpin Up)
Design paper: (Stampin Up)

Another card made for a friend going through some tough times. To make this card I started with a sheet of watercolor paper, stamped my image and embossed it with white embossing powder and then used my watercolor paints to color the image. I am also entering this one in the watercolor challenge at Crazy For CAS
Stamp: Corner Garden (Stampin Up)
Dies: Femme Frames (Mama Elephant)
White embossing powder
Made this one for a friend having a little girl and also for the Rock-A-Bye Baby challenge at CAS on Sunday.
I started out with a white card base and a stencil and sponged Pink Pirouette over it. I decided I wanted to make a shaker card and this sweet die from Papertrey Ink was a perfect choice.
Die cut: Text Block Baby ( Papertrey Ink)
Sequins: Pretty Pink Posh

My card I am sharing with you today was created with a couple challenges in mind. Today's sketch challenge on Splitcoast Stampers
and the Fusion challenge
I just used the colors from the fusion challenge since I was using a different sketch. My take on the sketch is just a little liberal but perfect for my CAS style.
To get the background behind each flower I just inked up my acrylic block and stamped. For the strip that goes across I used one of my go to sets Gorgeous Grunge.
Stamps: Peaceful Petals (Retired), Gorgeous Grunge (Sampin Up)

This one is for Melissa's challenge of Antique Embossing
This was another technique that I had never tried but is easy. To get this antique look all you do is emboss your die cut with gold embossing powder and then distress it with distress inks. I used walnut to distress mine. I also embossed a side panel and left it so you can see the difference between the two
As much as I would love to do all these challenges I am headed to bed with only completing four but four is better than none.

This one is for Lizzie's second challenge of Mock Mosaics. I colored my background stamp with Memento markers and then spritzed it with water, after stamping it on my panel I took a stencil and covered then image and painted a thin layer of gesso over it. To define the tiles more I went around the edge of each with the fine tip of the marker
