Winnie and Walter Confetti....

Hey there crafty friends!  I am so happy to be joining in with the girls over at Winnie and Walter today to showcase their new set called Scenery: Bigger Bang Confetti.  I have a little watercolor creation to share with you.


To make this background panel, I took some watercolor paper and spritzed it with water a couple times.  Then I inked up one of the star burst images and then spritzed it with water too, and then started stamping.  Keeping them all lined up, created this fun polka dot panel.  You can see the fun watercolor look it has.  This was definitely fun to make.  Next, I stamped the sentiment "thanks" from the same set and cut it out. I popped it up on foam tape and then added in some rain drops for a fun effect. 


Winnie and Walter has a fabulous Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale.  Here are a few details....

Stop over to the Winnie and Walter Blog to learn more about this new Bigger Bang Confetti set and also about the upcoming sales.  So glad you could stop in today!  Hope you have a great thanksgiving!

Hey there!  Just stopping in with a card so very appropriate for today!  It's cold!  We went to sleep with our first snow and woke up with a gorgeous frost.  I decided it was time to pull out these new sets from MFT and get work!


I stamped the hat, gloves and scarf with Bubblegum and Cherry Crisp.  Then I added it to the stitched panel from the Horizontal Cover up.  I scored the background and then airbrushed in a little BG01 for a slight blueish green glow.  I stamped the sentiment with my Misti....its always perfect with that thing!  


I am off to go shoe shopping.  We are headed out with friends tonight and I need a new pair of shoes for my outfit.  Do you have any fun plans for this weekend?  Hope its a great one!

Have a great day!

A treat...

So I attempted my first periscope yesterday.  Ummm....I was shaking.  That is a nerve wracking thing to do when you are talking to air and can't edit it out.  I also had settings wrong so people who aren't following me couldn't comment.  Thankful for the many messages following telling me they enjoyed my little scope and how to change my settings for next time.  Next time?  We will see!  hehe!

So during that scope, I made this card...


This new set from MFT is called Top Dog.  I don't usually color....I'm sure you know that by now, but I figured a could blend a couple browns together for this special occasion.  You see, this card is for my friend Chari.  And did I think Chari would pop in on the Scope?  Nope didn't think of it.  So I spoiled the surprise right there on Periscope.

I took the Chunky Chevron Cover up for the background and used the little negative from the Horizontal Companion Cover Up for the sentiment.  I added in a heart die colored with the same Copic as the little bow.  The heart is from the Top Dog dies.


So that is it for this Monday morning.  I am off to the gym.  And then home to do some cleaning.  Doesn't sound super fun does it?  :)

Hope you have a fantastic Monday!  Thanks for stopping in!

Celebration Inspiration...

Good morning!  It's time for our last Group Project for the Papertrey Ink release.  Today is all about birthdays!  I have three coordinating CAS cards to share.

This first card showcases the new Scene it: Celebration dies.


First, I added in some masked watercolor in the background.  For the focal point, I added the star layer in Gold Adhesive yardstick, the ballon layer in vellum and the top layer in Hibiscus Burst, with the heat embossed sentiment.  


This next card is super easy!  I used the dies from Birthday Cheer and cut out Celebrate in Gold Adhesive.


I layered the Confetti Toss paper on a Hibiscus Burst card base to finish it off.  Very quick and simple and easy to mass produce.


And for the last card, I used the same color scheme so they could all coordinate with the Confetti Toss patterned paper.


I stamped out the middle panel and added some Aqua Mist ink blending, as well as a small panel of cardstock behind the sentiment.  I added in a row of banner tails in vellum along with a Gold Embossed sentiment.


So that is it for today! Stop back by tomorrow when we share the rest of the release.  Thanks so much for stopping in!
