Wishing I could make you appear - Alphabet - M

Friday September 23, 2022

Hello

It's time for a new challenge over at

The letter this challenge is
M  - for MAGIC

For my card I was so stumped.. I asked hubby.. what can I use to make a magic card.. he said do you have a top hat, a rabbit, a dove???  So that made the mush in my head start to clear and think.. So I remembered I had the Tim Holtz crazy birds accessories images and there is the hat.. I have different bunny stamps so used My favorite things cause they were smaller.. Then looking for a sentiment I found this My favorite things stamps set.. WA-LA.. I have a card idea.. thanks to hubby planting the seed. So using Kraft I stamped the MFT image. colored with copics and white gel pen. I stamped the hat and bunny and colored with copics and using the dies cut them out. I added the MFT sentiment. I am happy with this fun card.

This is my card using the Mr. Slaters parrot.. I colored with copics. I think I should of googled parrots and colors but I didn't want to be the bright reds/yellows and such but I think the softer tones are ok.. Parrots are so pretty. I added some left over diamond drills. hubby pointed out that looks like the parrots is making a mess... lol. oops .. glue has dried so they are there to stay.. I took my banner punch and using the foil from coffee cans to keep the coffee fresh till you open it.. punched 3 banners. Added the twine.  The sentiment is from Tim Holtz snarky booklet. Looks like he doesn't care with his look and Mr. Slaters look.

ANYTHING GOES/OPT. STENCIL

For my card since I got to chose the theme I thought I would do the fall garden look. I used Ranger inks and My favorite things stencil brick wall. The grass is a Simon Says stencil. I created the background and liked what I got so then I chose some silhouette looking stamps from Gina K and Simon Says and stamped along the bottom. I added the Simon Says sentiment. I love the colors and it sure made the black silhouettes stand out more.

Hello

We have a new challenge over at

Our theme for this challenge is 
BABY GIRL

I have this old stamp from Creative Cousins which I love.. Perfect for any new born.. I knew I wanted to use it so I dug through some of my paper packs and found this Pink Fresh studio piece. It's already decorated with fun splatters and a few words.. So I cut it down to the size I wanted and stamped the Creative Cousins sentiment. Under the heart area was part of the word SMILE which was dark so it really stood out... So using a Sizzix die used the other side of the paper and cut a heart. I finished with a few Diamond painting drills.

I don't do sports and my hobby is making cards, diamond painting and flowers.. so I chose flowers. I used a Hero arts stamp and using my Marvy markers inked up the stamp and then using My favorite things stitch die cut it out and the DCWV scrap. For the orange Stamping up card stock I used MFT brick stencil and Ranger ink and added a little color to give some interest. It's very light on the computer but in real it's a little darker. no much.. I stamped the sentiment . I am not sure who it's by. I used Ranger inks to give some colors.

Well digging though some Pink Fresh papers I saw this cute simple designer paper. Then saw the Stampin up ornaments and using one of the ornaments and Stampin up ink I stamped and fussy cut it out.

Thursday September 1, 2022

Hello

I am back with another new challenge today over at

Our theme this month is
BACK TO SCHOOL


For my card I used Cosmo Cricket dp.. I stamped the Club Scrap sentiment. I then stamped and using Prima watercolors painted the kids. I used the dies and added them to the card. I thought it needed more so I stamped the glasses and apple. I colored the apple with copics and added the glasses to the little boy.  I chose the sentiment because there is always so much peer pressure in school / in life to follow others and in most cases it's not for the best... but it's best to be yourself, as long as you're doing right.

with Sympathy and love - Happy Little Stampers water color

Thursday September 1, 2022

Hello

We have a new challenge over at

Our challenge is 
ANYTHING GOES - WATERCOLORED


For my watercolored project I tried the bokeh technique.. I used Prima watercolors and painted the background with various colors of green.. It dried a lot lighter.. I used a wet brush to try to lift some of the paint to give the bokeh effect. Once this was dry I used some dark paint and painted the branches.  I did the highlight with Bleed proof white on the branches and then dotted the ends of the branches to give a flower look. Once this was all dry. I stamped the Simon Says sentiment. I need to practice on the bokeh tech. but overall I like it.
