TAWS March 2015 Release - Sneek Peak Day 3 AND Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hello friends!  Today i'm sharing a sneak peek of The Alley Way Stamps' March release.  This is image is from the set called Wigwam.

First i stamped the tepee image, then masked the tepee and the ground.  Next i filled in the green and blue background using Distress inks.  Then i started coloring my teepee with Copic markers.  Finally, I added the sentiment and few sequins.  Hope you like it!

The next card is for Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop
I seriously made this card in 5 minutes.  I painted 3 patches of watercolors on my card base, stamped 3 different coffee mugs, and sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black then added few sequins.  This is a coffee stamp set by Friskas i purchased at Joann's a while back (my one and only coffee set :))

As always, i appreciate all your comments.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Papertrey Ink February 2015 Blog Hop

Hello there!  I'm sharing a card made for PTI February Blog Hop.  Isn't the inspiration gorgeous?  I had so many ideas on how to make my card and that became a small issue.  I scrapped 3 cards prior to choosing this one.  I partially blamed it on making all 3 bad cards at midnight when i couldn't even see straight lol.  

On this card, i'm using the soft colors seen on the upper right corner of the inspirational image: pink, aqua, purple.  I started out with water coloring a piece of watercolor paper.  I stamped and white embossed my ferns on vellum.  This is inspired by the white pattern on the inspirational image.  I trimmed the water colored card stock, die cut my ferns and adhered on top.  To add more dimension, i only applied adhesive toward the center of the ferns, then curled the leaves up a little bit.  For the sentiment, i stamped it on a small rectangle piece of card stock and anchored it over the fern using thin foam tape.  

I hope you like it.  Thanks in advance for your wonderful comments.  Have a great day!!



I'm also submitting this card to Make It Monday #202 since i'm using anchoring on my card and the following:

Tooth Fairy

Hello, friends!  Today i'm sharing a shaker card made with Tootharina set.  I had so much fun created this card.  

First i watercolored the background using distress inks Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed.  Because the entire front of the card was shaker and there were so much sequins, so i added the foam tapes around the edges first, but only sealed the bottom edge and 2 sides.   I added sequins, glittered stars, and micro beads through the opening on the top edge then sealed it.  

Hope you like it.  Have a fabulous day!

A TAWS Flashback Hello Card

Hello friends!  Today i'm sharing a TAWS flashback card.  This is an older TAWS set called Sea Mates.  I used watercolor to create the wavy background.  I stamped and colored my fish with Copics.  Then i used Pebeo Drawing Gum to mask them before adding the blue and green distress ink background.  

The drawing gum took a while to dry.  Once it's dry, you can just rub it off.  

Here's the close up look of my fish with wet drawing gum layer...

Thanks so much for visiting.  Hope you have a wonderful day!!
