The Flower Challenge #48.

Hello everyone: I hope all of you and your families are still doing well, do your best to stay healthy, safe and please don't forget to wear your masks.

The new theme for THE FLOWER CHALLENGE is a color one, we would love to see your cards created with PINK and BROWN in our gallery.
This is the card I created to inspire you to come and play along.

We are being sponsored this month by BUGABOO STAMPS who's generously giving a $12.00 gift code to our lucky winner, this is enough to get approximately 4 digital stamps.  They have so many beautiful and fun stamps for you to choose from, my card is made with one of them.

I printed the image on Canson Mixed Media paper and colored it with Prismacolor pencils.  I'm not very sure where the die-cut sentiment comes from, it's either from Elizabeth Craft Designs or Die Cuts & More, I apologize.
I cut the word 5 times, once with pink card stock, 4 times in black to give it dimension, it was a bit of a task to glue all 5 layers.
The frame was cut with the "Hemstitch Squares" from Spellbinders.

This is the inside.

The border is from a SU set called "Delicate Details" (2017 SAB, retired), the sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called "Sage Advise", on sale now😉
The climbing rose is from a SU set called Grace's Garden.

I hope you go and visit THE FLOWER CHALLENGE blog for more inspiration from my teammates and come and join us in the gallery.

Thank you for visiting me today.
Stay healthy and safe.

Easter Lillies.

Hello everyone: I hope all is good with you and your families, I know it's hard to do what's right, especially when the weather is so hot, wearing a mask is uncomfortable, but being attached to a respirator.....well, you know what I mean.

I've been working on creating some cards using my UFO's (Un-Finished Objects), you know? those stamped panels and layouts you kind of leave for later but never get around to finish.
I stamped two of this image, I'll make another card with a different design later.


The image is from "Stampers Best" and was stamped on watercolor paper with Stazon black ink and colored with SU re-inkers and Prismacolor pencils.
The planter is from a super old kit from "Flower Soft" (I kind of fiddle with this style for a while), the patter paper is from "The Paper Studio" (one-sided), the sentiment (Power Poppy "Natural Beauties") was stamped on a die-cut from a Spellbinders set called "Tranquil Moments", I cut it in half for the sentiment and the decoration on the corner.

The sentiment is from Power Poppy "Everything's Even Rosier", the little flower from "Natural Beauties".

I'm playing with these challenges.

More UFO's Finished.

Hello everyone: I hope all of you and your families are doing ok dealing with these difficult and painful times, we need to pray and hope things will CHANGE soon.  Please don't forget to wear your masks.
I'm sure most of you guys have a box or a drawer where you put stamped images or card layouts that maybe you weren't too happy with and thought of finishing later but never did?? Well, I have one box filled with these things and today, I'm sharing some of them. The image is the same, I think my original intention was to create some Holiday cards with it but either changed my mind or, most likely, forgotten about it. In any case, here they are.

As you can see, I used the same images changing the colors for each card.
I just love this little Snowman, the stamp doesn't have the ornaments, I just added some Gina Marie Designs enamel dots and some gold pen for the strings.
The sentiments are from a Power Poppy set called "Poinsettia", the ornaments on the inside are from a Penny Black set called "A Bright Tomorrow".
The embossing folder is called "Ornaments Hung" and it's from Darice.
The Snowman is from Inkadinkado, I couldn't get a link to work but here's the serial # if you are interested, 98379-DD.

I want to play with these challenges.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
Stay healthy, safe and please wear your masks.
