Hope your weekend is going swimmingly! We are having low 70’s temps (and a nice breeze) this weekend and I could not be happier! It’s a welcome relief to the heat. I wish I could bottle it up. 🙂
Anywho–I have had this Bon Voyage stamp and die set on my desk for months. I finally got to it last night. 🙂 I really wanted to make some happy clouds!
I brushed on some Distress Inks to create the background. I quick Googled Sunset images and found this photo below to inspire my color choices. When I find inspiration, I usually just look at it and get to work. I use it for the jump start and don’t refer back, but I see now there is a lot more blue in this photo. 😉Photo Credit HERE.
I used my Zig Clean Color markers to watercolor this airplane on Bristol paper. You can BARELY tell it is even colored in these photos, so I guess I could have gone a notch darker? I also added some glossy accents to the plane, and those are next to invisible! Haaaa!! I was trying to keep the focus on the clouds. I’m not sure if I succeeded in the end. LOL!
I used the following Lawn Fawn sets: Bon Voyage, Chit Chat (a long time LF fave!), and Thanks a Bushel for all the happy faces!
I’m entering this in the fun over at Lawn Fawnatics! This is for this Challenge #7 HERE!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Thank you for stopping by! 🙂
Have a great week!
Happy Friday! I am back on my Friday Paper Smooches schedule this week! Last week, we were out-of-town having fun with family. But I’m getting back on track slowly this week! 🙂
If you haven’t seen it all, Paper Smooches June release is available HERE!
I made these projects I’m sharing today with the new Garden Greetings stamp set and dies. This set is fun to color! 🙂
First up, is one of my favorite cards this month–This stamp and matching die makes just the sweetest little thank you card!
The added bee slays me! 🙂 I colored these flowers with Copic markers and added Glossy Accents, letting them dry overnight. I added the image to a card panel that I reverse scored repeatedly. I finished it all off with a stitched “window” and some sparkly sequins! 🙂
This BFF below, was one of the first things I colored from this set. ❤ Some nights, you just want to color!
The cutest little bees are from the Courteous Cuties (seriously the cutest!) set, with matching dies.
I added Glossy Accents to these images as well. I think I was determined to go through a whole bottle this last month or so! LOL! 🙂
This tag die is the For You tag die. I love its squatty look! I finished off this card with some twine and stitching. 🙂
Gah, it’s all such fun!! (You can find the card I shared previously using this set HERE.) ❤
Thanks for stopping by again! Have an awesome weekend!
I need some sunshine to mail and I saw the Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights Challenge this month: Strawberry, Orange and Lemon–perfection!
Here is my card!
For this, I used two Essentials by Ellen stamps sets: Wonky Backdrops and Warm Fuzzies.I watercolored with Distress Inks: Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin and Mustard Seed. I stamped with Versamark Black ink and clear heat embossed all those. To finish it off, I added some spatters and stitching for texture.
There’s still time to jump in on this Pin-Sights Challenge! I hope to squeeze in another card using this combo–since it is a go-to fave of mine anyway. 😉
See you back here tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Tuesday! A perfect day to share a project I made using a stamp set from Technique Tuesday! It’s from a previous release, but a fave of mine! Technique Tuesday’s Fan-tastic! (That Teri Anderson makes some GOOD GOOD stuff!) 😉
I used more of my patterned paper (FTW!) to create this card. After I was done fussy cutting all the layers out, the thought popped in my head to add the blowing “ribbons”. I thought it turned out fun! This was a Father’s Day card for my hubby ❤ .
Be sure to hop over and check out the new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE! 🙂
Quick and simple today! Have a great Tuesday!
Take care- Jill 🙂
Happy Sunday! I hope your day is a great one! I still need to finish my Father’s Day cards…yikes!
I wanted to hop in and share this cutie bear card using the new Paper Smooches Kind Bear Die and the Kindness Sampler! ❤ How fantastic is this sentiment? And how true? I didn’t think ahead about photographing this one, so the white on white was not a brilliant choice in that regard. However, in person, it looks good! 🙂
I also used the Rose Frame Die and Harlequin Die (dry embossed) for the background. I think it made the perfect frame for this cutie! 🙂
I used colored cardstocks to make the bear, but I also used Copic markers to color his flower. I coated a few bits with Glossy Accents and added some stitching too.
All of the new Paper Smooches June release can be found HERE! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great rest of the weekend!! 🙂
Happy Summer! Just popping in with a couple quicker cards I made last week. It was a crazy week, but I did sneak these in and felt better! 🙂
I used my Zig Clean Color pens to watercolor these in. (Then I photographed them with Copic markers, and I think that is just funny! Shows how time crunched things got.) I finished them with some stitching and some Wink of Stella sparkle.
I can’t wait to use more of these stamps soon! SO fun! 🙂 I used Avery Elle’s The Scoop. I think this set is delightful, and would also pair awesome with their newer ice cream treat stamp set. I don’t own that one yet, but the treats smile, so I really must some day 😉 .
Yum! Happy Summer!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Friday!
Hola! I ❤ this sentiment from Neat and Tangled! 🙂
I used Neat and Tangled’s stamp set Good Vibes and their stencil Scoops, blending on Distress Inks. I then sprayed it with water to get a little movement, but apparently it wasn’t having it! Haaaa!
I wanted to get in on this month’s Little Tangles Challenge: Color Combo Challenge! Plenty of time for you to join in too! How awesome and tasty is this image below?!Yum! Happy Summer indeed!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!
