My Friend-------in Turquoise colors June 23. 2017

 but decided not to post it until tomorrow. The colors just got me in a creative mood I guess. The circle image was one I have had on my desk for years, so I decided to see what I could come up with!
I added a sentiment from Gina K., and found a petite oval die that would hold the "my friend" words. A little bow was made out of some ribbon in my stash, and then I added some matching gems to tie it all together.



So glad you stopped by today.

Odorless Mineral Spirits colored these Daisies 6.23.2017

I colored this image with Odorless Mineral Spirits and a blending stump after I stamped the daisies with Memento ink.  Theresa Momber did such a beautiful job with this Stamp Set from Gina K. Designs- all these sets are fantastic!  Gina knows where to get these artists, right?
I added glitter to the flower centers to match the gold twine bow.


Thank you for visiting!

Pencils and Gamsol June .22.2017

After watching Gina K's tutorial video today on StampTV I decided to try and color  with pencils and Odor-Free Mineral Spirits- since it is what I always used instead of Gamsol brand.  It has been years since the last time, but it worked beautifully.  I only had one blending stump that I could find, so it will be on my shopping list to purchase some different sizes soon, to replenish my craft hobby.  This was definitely fun to color the image after I stamped it with Memento ink.  So glad to have the matching die to make it so easy to cut out the owl. The image was put on a piece of brown CS, that I
 Cuttle Bugged.  Put the sentiment on and was all done here.
Try this technique- you will have a blast doing it.  A fun alternative to using Copic markers.

Very happy to share this with you today!

A Daisy- Just Because 6.18.2017


I was playing around today and decided on making this card.  I used EP, Copics, sponging and a few other techniques, and stamps from Melanie's Fill It With Flowers set from Gina K. Designs.

Thurs., June 15, 2017 MOD Squad Challenge Make it Square

I love making square cards- the look of them is so intriguing, compared to the usual cards I normally make.  The one is for the Make It Square Challenge at MOD Squad.

I colored the flower ( from the Theresa Momber set, called Daisy Delight) from Gina K. Designs- with Copic markers spritzed with Rubbing Alcohol.  I added glitter to the flower center, under the Happy Birthday sentiment tag and used a 4.25 " square cardstock base. The silver base adds a little background to the flower.

Thank you for visiting today.

6.13.2017 I am back

I had a little fun playing with the new Gina K. StampTV kit called Sentimental Summer, today.  I hope to be posting a little more often now, especially since it is way too hot to head outside.  A/C and my craft room are calling me- haha.

See you soon and I want to thank you for visiting!

MOJOMonday 500 and another for Split Coast SC648---- Tuesday, June 8, 2017

I followed the #500 sketch using the Sentimental Summer stamps from Gina K. Design's kit.
I used the final sketch from MOJO Monday #500 .  So sad that the site is ending and this is her final sketch.





 

I appreciate you taking a look at my card today! I really enjoyed following all the sketches for years and years and am so sad that it is closing.  
Well, here is another one, using product from the new Sentimental Summer Kit, from Gina K. Designs, backed with Gingham paper and fussy cut flowers, and a sentiment from the All About You set.  I used the sketch SC648, from
 Split Coast Stampers, for this one.
