On a piece of watercolor paper, I white embossed my floral pattern using the Bloom Stamp Set. Then, I blended Barn DoorFossilized AmberSeedless PreservesCrushed OlivePine Needles and Broken China Distress Inks. After that, using a wet paint brush, I lifted and added colors to create texture and depth. I also added some white paint splatters. Finally, I die cut the watercolor panel with MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX to get my favorite stitching detail 🙂

To finish the card, I white embossed the sentiment from The Necessary One Stamp Set on black card stock and mounted with foam tape.

MFT & Avery Elle – Oceans of Love

Hi friends! As you can see, I’m addicted to cardmaking again! I want to share my mermaid card with you today. My inspiration comes from the Avery Elle Canopy Stamp Set.

DSCN9771-3-14-15.jpg

I have used this stamp set in different ways before and it is still my all time favorite. If you don’t have it, I highly recommend it because it is so versatile!! I used it as flowers here and turned it upside down as garden bush here. You can see the photos below. For today however, I’m using it as coral reef. This is so fun!

I first heat embossed the flowers and the sentiment in white on watercolor paper. Then, I created the background with Squeezed Lemonade, Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Dusty Concord Distress Inks. I added water droplets for the underwater feel. Once we’ve added the underwater colors, the flowers totally tricked your brain that they are corals!

I stamped out the images from MFT BB Mermazing Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Then, I colored them with Copic Markers and added highlights with white gel pen. I have listed all the colors I used below so feel free to use them as reference 🙂 Finally, I die cut them out using MFT BB Mermazing Die-namics.

To finish, I die cut the card panel with SSS Basic Rectangles Die (second largest) and mounted everything on a card base using foam tape and Scor-Tape.

That’s it for today. Thank you for stopping by! Happy crafting! 🙂

Oh Happy Day Card

Hi crafty friends! I’m popping in today to share with you my Oh Happy Day card. I was inspired by the summer colors of ocean and passion fruit cocktail. Here is my card.

DSCN9784-2-10-11

DSCN9799-10-11

I first took a piece of watercolor paper and blend Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks onto all four edges. I left the middle white but the corners darker to create more depth. I also splattered water onto the panel with a paint brush and plotted dry to make bubbles.

Then, I colored the intricate die cut with Copic markers. The colors I used are listed below. When everything was dry, I adhered the die cut onto my card with Ranger Multi Medium Matte to finish.

MFT – You’re a Treasure

Hi friends! Today I want to share with you my pirate card using MFT Party Like a Pirate Stamp Set.

DSCN9745-11

DSCN9743-1-11

I started out stamping the super cute pirates and accessories with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then, I colored them with Copic markers and added highlights with a Jelly Roll Pen. After that, I die cut them with MFT Party Like a Pirate Die-namics.

For the background, I blended Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio inks. I added water droplets and ink splatters on it. I used bigger paint brush for the water and smaller brush for the ink splatters. Then, I die cut the panel with MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. To ground the pirates, I die cut a beach using SSS Nested Circles Die and ink blend with Scattered Straw ink.

To finish, I foam mounted everything onto a white card base and added the speech bubble with white embossed sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy crafting as always! 🙂
