Watercolor Thanks


Hi....

Can you tell that I am loving my new watercolors by QOR ?!?
The colors are so vibrant, go on with such ease. I have been using watercolors that take several applications to achieve a desired strength in color, but these are a one coat application.
Love!!!!

Hey there and Welcome to the Falling for You Blog Hop...

I am so excited to be a part of this MEGA hop.
You are in for a real treat today as you hop along with many designers giving you ideas and inspiration for the new release at Simon Says Stamp.


Baby Party Animals as balloons!
Shined up their bellies with irRESISTible Pico Shimmer, an awesome Tiny Alphabet Background stamp, itty bitty button embossing folder and a vellum tag.

I could not stop at just one card, so.....


How about a shaker card suited for anyone?!?

There is that awesome Tiny Alphabet Background stamp again (love it) inked with Kaleidacolor Tomato Vine, a Stitched Rectangle as the shaker, sentiments and banners from the Baby Party Animals stamp set.
Of course no shaker is complete until you fill it with sequins and such.

Watercolors & Welcome


Hidey ho....

Playing today at Reverse Confetti using this sketch as inspiration:


This was an extra fun one to make as I had new goodies from Reverse Confetti AND new watercolors to play with. 
I recently received the new QOR watercolors and just look how vibrant the colors are on that background.
 LOVE!!!!!


For some added interest, I also used a bit of gold.
A drop of Delicata Golden Glitz reinker on my craft mat, touched it with a wet paint brush and dropped it onto the watercolor panel. 
"birthday" was die cut then coated with irRESISTible Pico Wedding Dress embellisher (my all time favorite)!!!!

a BIG happy


Hello, hello...

Playing in a couple of challenges today with this "happy" little creation.

So loving my Silhouette Cameo and how I can make a custom outline of any die cut. I just love how the "happy" die cut looks so striking against the eBrushed background.


I used Wausau Stardust paper for the die cut, but there is so little of it, you don't get the effect of the confetti pressed into the paper. (you can barely see bits of red on the two p's. :)

Challenges Entered:
Sparkle & Shine  -  sketch
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday  -  Make background
