Watercolor Flower card

I made this one a while ago, but it caught my eye today.  It is definitely a favorite - clean and simple, and a pop of color.   

The Forever and Always stamp set is from Simon Says Stamp.  LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!  The flower was watercolored with Distress reinkers in Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint.  Once it was dry, the sentiment was embossed in white and dots were applied using white Enamel Accents.

Other Supplies:
Cardstock - Soft Stone - Papertrey Ink
Ink - Colorbox Dye Ink (I can't recall the color, but it is a dark gray)
Other - Corner Rounder

Another hello card

I think my favorite kind of card to make is a Hello card.  I have so many hello dies and stamps - love to experiment with them.

The background was dry embossed with a Cuttlebug folder inked with Hero Arts Shadow ink in Soft Pool.  The PTI stitched Hello was die cut from patterned paper and backed with white paper.

Other supplies:
Cardstock - Ocean Tides, Soft Stone - Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper - Hero Arts/Basic Grey - Hello Luscious

Late Summer Card Camp Homework :)

I took the awesome Online Card Classes Summer Card Camp class earlier this summer.  Unfortunately, life got crazy and I didn't get to participate much.  I did manage to make this card based on one of the sketches and color combos.

 (The light was a little bright for the first pic - wish I would have see this before dark!)

The hearts were cut out from the card front using the Lawn Fawn heart dies.  The positive die cuts were covered with Distress Paints and Glossy Accents.

Other supplies:
Cardstock - Kraft - PTI
Background stamp - Hero Arts Envelope Liner
Stamp - PTI
White Pen - Distress Picket Fence Marker
