You are the Best!

The beautiful heart on this card was made with a stamp that had been inked with distress inks and then misted before it was stamped.  I used 2 die cuts on the card, a heart from Stampin Up and the "you" die from Simon Says Stamp.  This is another card inspired by the Online Card class  that was all about watercolors for stampers.  I'm linking this up to Less is More, where the challenge this week is to use die cuts, and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog, where anything goes!

Cultivate Love

Another card inspired by the Watercolor for Cardmakers class.  This delphinium stamp was so easy to ink up using markers.  A little spritz of water and it was ready to stamp.  I'm linking this up to Less is More where the theme is "Flowers".

Watercolor Stamping

This one layer Thank You card is another one created with inspiration from the Watercolors for Card Maker class I am taking online (see previous post for more info).  I have tried so many new techniques, and revisited some I had used before.  This card was created using distress ink and lot of misting.  I love all the depth the flower has from all the layering.  The flowers  are from a Stampin' Up set called "Too Kind", and the sentiment is from the "So Very Grateful" set.

I am adding this to the 1 Layer Thank You challenge at Less is More, and linking up to the Online Card Class gallery.

Have you tried this technique?  Let me know how it worked for you!

Thanks for stopping by.

Watercolor Thanks

I took a little "blog break" and now I'm back with lots of inspiration from the Online Card Class Watercolors for Card Makers.  As soon as I read the description for this class, I knew it was perfect for me, since I love to use watercolors and distress inks on my projects.  The colored background for this card was made by stamping distress ink on an acrylic block and then misting and applying to watercolor paper.  It was one of the first techniques taught in the Online Card Class, and I love it!  I placed a Simon Says Stamp diecut with fancy handwriting over it.  It is quite large, and a perfect fit for the color blocked area.

This fits in with the Handwriting Challenge over at the Moxie Fab World. 

Thanks for stopping by, I would love to hear what you think about this technique.
