forever in love with you - Alphabet challenge "A"

Friday April 9, 2021

Hello

I am the host this week over at 
So that gives me the choice of themes
So since we are starting back at the beginning of the alphabet I get 

A =  ANNIVERSARY

I chose Anniversary as the "A" word as there are anniversaries coming up since so many get married in the spring, early summer.  For my card I stamped the Simon Says sentiment and image. I then used my Shin Han watercolors and painted the images. The background looked so plain so I used Paul Ruben metallic watercolors and this pretty pink and painted the background. I added dots to the flower centers with metallic paint. I added a scrap of Quick Quote paper to the left and added a ribbon. 


 Challenges:
Dragonfly journeys - April showers bring flowers
Love to scrap #144 - spring forward
Crafting happiness #91 - sunshine / anything goes

hooray for today - Crafty Catz #546

Hello

We have a new challenge today over at 

Our theme is
ANYTHING GOES


Our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps
I am using Cupcake Kidz 

For my card I used the image Cupcake Kidz.. My hubby came in the craft room yesterday grabbed a piece of white card stock and he had the mesh from his bag of oranges and held it down to the card stock. Said do you have any spray paint.. So I grabbed my Dylusions spray and gave a couple spritz. He lifted off the orange mesh.. Wala.. we have a cool background. He was proud of it and said he wanted to see a card made using it. So since it was right there on my table I used that for the background. I took washi tape in yellow and layered it about 5 times to stop the transparent look. I colored the image with copics and fussy cut her out.  I stamped and heat embossed the Reverse Confetti and Simon Says sentiments and added to the card. I added some turquoise Nuvo drops. I went over parts of the image with Spectrum Noir sparkle brush.  Hubby loves how it came out.

Hello

It's time for a new challenge over at 

Our theme this challenge is
SLIMLINE

Ok.. I don't know if I am sold on these slimline cards yet or not.. I've only made a few. To me it's too much card. ALTHOUGH it worked for this fun Rubber Baby Buggy Bumper OLD stamp.. I love light houses and the coast. We try to get out a few times over the summer. We are only about an hour drive. I love living in SW Washington state.. Anyhow I stamped the image and using Shin Han water colors colored the image.  I found an old pre-scored slim line card base (I had a few from many years ago when I belonged to Club Scrap) I chose the yellow base as it kinda brought out the light house color. I stamped the RBBB ground mounds below the bird with gray ink and stamped the G-rated sentiment. I added this under the image and added to the base. I have this sea bird die I have no idea who it's by but grabbed some scraps and then added it to the card.  I think I would be happier with a slimmer shorter body.. oops I mean card..

Happy Birthday - Cardz 4 Guyz #268

Tuesday April 6, 2021

Hello

We have a new challenge over at 

Our theme this challenge is
USE SOMETHING NEW IN YOUR STASH


For my card my new stash is a pack of papers from Taylored Expressions called Playful patterns black and white.  I chose the star which now that it's cut down I realize it's more in a circle pattern which is driving me crazy as it looks lop sided.. But that's me.. I liked the stars because it's a guy card and they are the star guy having a birthday.. The image is an OLD red rubber Club Scrap stamp. The Happy Birthday is from the Local King.  I thought it needed a touch of color so I used a scrap of red and Stampin up punch for the heart.  I like that touch of color.

Simon Wednesday - anything goes
