Inspired by All the Little Things #57

Oh what a lovely bunch of tulips they have for their inspiration at Inspired by All the Little Things.  I do have some tulip stamps but none of them seemed enough so I went in a totally different direction.

Using the Harleen stencil from W&W, I colored it with Distress Inks in the colors of the photo.  I stamped the EbyE sentiment on vellum so the beautiful colors could show through.

Thanks for dropping by.

CAS(E) This Sketch #222

The sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch this week could go so many ways that it was difficult to pick one. I stamped images to color while I was on vacation and never got around to it so I decided to use some of them.
The images are all from MFT's Polynesian Paradise colored with Zigs.  The sentiment is from WPlus9 embossed in white.

Instagram here I come!  I have had an account but have not posted any of my cards there.  I got a few pointers from Michele yesterday and now I'm plunging headlong into it.  I hope you will follow me and if you have an account please let me know so I can follow you.

Addicted to Stamps and More #243

It's time for another holiday card at Addicted to Stamps and More.  Most of us choose Christmas for our holiday so we have plenty of cards to mail when the season comes.  Here's mine.
The PB stamp was colored with markers, spritzed with water and stamped on watercolor paper so I could move the color around and restamp for more color if needed.  The sentiment is also from PB.

Will you choose Christmas for your holiday card?  No matter what holiday you choose we can't wait to see your card in the gallery.  Be sure to check out what the Design Team has done if you need inspiration.

 

Curtain Call - Frosting

The photo title says 'frosting' but I saw flowers and that is what I did for the challenge at Curtain Call.
I love the peachy colored cupcake on the right in the photo below.  Mine turned out a little darker but Distress Tea Dye was as close as I had to color this PB flower.  The wood panel is from Altenew stamped with Hickory Smoke DI with a water wash over it.  The sentiment is from E by E.

So glad you dropped by.  Have a wonderful day.

CASology #249

Is it warm enough for you?  Not for me.  We went to the lake Saturday to rake leaves and put in the dock (it's a community effort) and there were white caps on the lake.  I'm glad I didn't have to go into the water but the guys who did all had waders on.

Why am I telling you this?  Because the cue word at CASology this week is "Warm".   I thought of doing mittens and a scarf because that's how I was feeling but totally went a different way once I saw the sentiment on the Altenew Vintage Cups set.

The cup, flowers and sentiment are all heat embossed in gold on Bristol.  A little Zig action colored in where it was needed and I have another prayer card for a dear friend's sister who is going through aggressive chemo.

I'm also sending my card to AAA Cards.  They are asking for embossing on your card.

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope your week is off to a good start.
