I used Spectrum Noir markers to color all the images, i used these colors: CG1, CG2, DG3, CT1, CT3, CT4, GB5. Then i fussy cut them out, then i used lightly curled the petals, just using my fingers, then adhered two petals and the flower center.

Next i pulled out a white card base and added the two flower stems along with the poppy bud. I cut a strip of card stock and stamped the sentiment Poppy. Then i added it to my card with foam tape. Just above the strip i added two poppy leaves, then finally adhered the poppy flower to my stem.

For my card i started with the new alpha set Great Expressions, i inked it up before i removed any of the stamps and stamped it on some watercolor paper. I thought i'd do this before i start using and moving the alpha's from their perfect lines!!

I used a couple different Distress inks to get a watercolor background. I think i'm addicted to water coloring!!! Next i stamped the super cute road runner from the new Cha Cha Cha set on watercolor paper. I used Distress Markers to color him up, then i fussy cut around him.

Then i found some dark red card stock that i cut in a strip and stamped the Beep Beep sentiment from the Cha Cha Cha set. I added both the card stock strip and the road runner to the watercolor panel, then adhered the watercolor panel to a white card base!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Hiya!!

I'm on the Art Impressions blog today with a super easy mini tag card to share with you! So i kind of like tags! Have a lot of different shapes and sizes and sometimes i like to make little cards out of the bigger tags in my stash.

It's super easy to make cards out of your dies, even the small ones! Just score a piece of card stock in half (you can use a smaller piece of card stock if your die is small). On the cutting plate lay down your die (cutting edge up) and then placed your scored card stock over the die, with the folded part just below the top of the die. Run it through the machine a couple times since it has two layers to cut through! And wa-la you now have a card in the shape of your die!

On my little tag card i stamped a new AI stamp that you can find at AC Moore called Bigger Cake. I stamped the image again on another piece of white card stock and then colored it with Copic markers.

Then i fussy cut out the lady and cake and then added her to the tag card with foam dots. I added some matching purple ribbon to the top of the tag card.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #151

Hello!

It's time for a new challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More! And its a favorite one!! Anything Goes!! I decided to play with some new to me Avery Elle stamps i got awhile back!!
Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Avery Elle
I'm using the the Avery Elle Super set and i wanted to make a more feminine card, so i found some stripe pattern paper with spring like colors. The same pattern paper pad had some pink polka dot vellum paper in it. I thought it was perfect for my feminine super card, it saved me from having to stamp the dot background in the stamp set.

I added the stripe pattern patter with vellum overlay to a white card base. Next i die cut the cityscape from grey card stock and then stamped the matching stamp in black. I used a versamark pen to add some shading to the cityscape.

Next i die cut the explosions from some other pattern papers from the pad. Then i stamped the explosion outlines and added Boom and Pow to each. I also cut the spotlight from pattern paper, stamped the outline and added the Happy Birthday sentiment. I add the cityscape, explosions and spotlight to my card with foam tape.

Today is the day for the new The Alley Way Stamps July release stamps!! Make sure you stop by The Alley Way Stamps blog for more inspiration and your chance to win the three new stamps sets!

I'm featuring the new set Oh, Splat! This is such a fun set, lots of different splats and awesome sentiments to go with them!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - The Alley Way Stamps
I started my card by cutting some watercolor paper with a stitched rectangle. I used some Spectrum Aqua Floral markers to color the splat stamps directly, then spritz a little water and stamped them on the rectangle. With a watercolor brush spread the ink from the marker around a bit more. I found that coloring the markers on rubber is better then clear, but its not impossible with clear stamps!!

Next i stamped the Splat Happens sentiment in black ink. I also found some flat neon sequins that i thought went well with the bright colors i used. I added yellow sequins to the yellow splats, green sequins to the green splats and so on.

After i added the sequins i thinking it needed something else so i added some clear Stickles to the sequin centers. This added a little sparkle i think to the card! I added the panel to a black card base.

The Alley Way Stamps - Sneak Peek #3

Hello!!

It's the last day for Sneak Peeks over at The Alley Way Stamps! Tomorrow the new stamps will be revealed!!! Yay!! Today i am sneaking the new set Old School!! So many fun options in this set!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - The Alley Way Stamps
I started with the little game pieces that look very similar to the pieces in the game Sorry. I stamped several on some watercolor paper, then colored them with distress markers. Then i fussy cut them out.

My plan was to have a small pile of the them on my card, but after i placed them on my card i look how they looked spread out a little. So then i thought they really needed fill the whole card, so i stamped, colored and fussy out a bunch more!!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - The Alley Way Stamps

When i was happy with the placement of the pieces i adhered them down to my white card base. Next i stamped the I'm Sorry sentiment on a double ended banner. When i placed the banner on my card it blended into the card too much, so i cut a strip of black card stock and adhered the banner to it. I added it to the card with foam dots.

I hope you will stop by tomorrow for The Alley Way Stamps July Blog Hop! We will revealing the new stamps and lots of inspiration!! And of course there will be a giveaway!
