6.25.2017 More Fine Feathers

I made this one yesterday and I was so surprised that it closely resembles the one I made when this set was first released. I didn't plan on doing that though.
 A peaceful bunch of feathers makes for a lovely card.  Agree?

Here is my previous card!

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!

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.

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.

6.7.2017 Another Sentimental Summer Card


 I colored with Copics after I stamped the image from Gina K.'s Sentimental Summer kit with Memento ink.  I added a scalloped sentiment to make this a card that fits many occasions.
The largest flower was popped up with dimensional tape for texture, after I cut it out with the matching die from this kit. I backed the main panel with some green CS to add a little color.



Thank you for stopping by today.

June 6, 2017 First Creation from the new Sentimental Summer Kit

Since my granddaughter lives in Arizona I made this one first and mailed it to her today.  It was  created,  using products from Gina K's Sentimental Summer kit that came in yesterday's mail.
There are so many stamps in this kit and should keep me very busy.

 
I colored the image with Copics and also added some additional leaves and a silk flower, to this card.

Thank you for stopping by to take a peek.

5.31.2017 Playing with the new camera

These are fake cactus that I made by painting flagstone rocks from the garden and then stamped the little white flowers from a Gina K stamp set. 
I arranged them all in a bowl of sand to decorate the table on the outdoor porch.  I did make this arrangement last summer, but I needed to take a photo with my new camera, for practice. 
No card pictures today though! I am going out to lunch with 2 of the girls I graduated from high school with so many years ago.  I am so grateful that so many of us stay in touch,  We were from the last Class to graduate, before the school closed and was torn down.    




Here is also one I took, of one of my cats.

Tues., May 30, 2017 This works for 2 Challenges

I started wanting to make a card for MojoMonday499, http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/2017/05/mojo-monday-499.html



and then I saw the requirements for Gina K.' STV17MON22

(Black and White, with 1 other color. My other color are those little red gems.  This one fits both.
 I did it, didn't I?

My new camera came today, and this is the first photo I took.  Big difference, right? Now you know why I needed a new camera.

MojoMonday 498 Sketch Challenge 5.23.2017

I used a little word stamp from Claire Brennan and Gina K Designs to inspire my sketch card here.

Here is Sketch MojoMonday 498
....and my take on it.  Thanks for visiting.

  I used GKD card stock and a silk flower and gem to make this sketch work for me. A little scoring was done to the khaki CS, for texture. The small flowers have added glitter to their centers, for additional sparkle. Picture 815.



5-23-2017 Masking Challenge for STV17MON21 for StampTV


I am thinking there will be a new camera in my future, since this one is giving me a hard time.  I apologize that this photo isn't up to what used to be great photos from me in the past.  Bear with me, for now, ok?

I used GKD stamps to make this card, and Copic markers to color the images.


Thanks for stopping by.

5.14.2017 Happy Mother's Day CELEBRATE

    I used the sketch from MOJO Monday 496, and Claire Brennan's Sweet Think stamp set from Gina K. Design's.  A folder called Swiss Dots by Cuttlebug, created the background, along with some sparkly Stickles added to the frosting, under that Copic colored cherry.  
  Enjoy your day!  I definitely will, as my children arrive!

4.17.2017 MojoMonday 493 Challenge

I played in the MojoMonday 493 with this card today.  Here is the sketch.

 I followed the sketch and used some gingham dp on top of solid green cs.  I added some daisies that I
die cut and mounted on more of the cs.  The sentiment is from the Stamp it Big set by Carolyn King and Gina K. Designs.  The touch of grosgrain ribbon in yellow to tie the whole thing together.


Thank you for visiting and I hope you had a wonderful Easter Holiday yesterday.

4.13.2017 Chalk Challenge for MOD Squad

This is the card I made for the Chalk Challenge at Gina K. Designs= MOD SQUAD Challenge.

I heat embossed the image itself and then colored it in with Chalk, on GKD cs.  This was a fun challenge and fairly new to me.  I may have done this years ago, but I really don't remember. I popped it all up an a piece of grosgrain ribbon, and added the sentiment. The image and the sentiment are from the Art from the Heart set from GKD.

Thanks for visiting!

My 1st Cottage Garden Card 4.12.2017

Using my new Gina K. Design stamp sets- Cottage Garden and also Daisy Delight by Theresa Momber has made me into a very busy stamper playing more than I thought I would.

I added a Spellbinder cut lattice piece over the flowers from Theresa's set and then I added the Cottage in front of the "fence".  It popped the design on a piece of  GKD cardstock, before adding it to my card base.  I was able to keep it a A2 size so it would still fit in the envelope.

I am happy you came by to see my latest card.  Thank you!
