Seahorsin' Around

Seahorses are so unique and have always intrigued me so I was so happy to see this adorable stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn. I used a tri-fold frame window card with a distress oxide ink (Chipped Sapphire and Salty Ocean) background, seahorses colored with Copics and die cut. Outside front panel was swiped with Crumb Cake (kraft color) ink for a wood look.
This is for the "Little Things" Lawn Fawnatics challenge.

Happy Bastille Day!

I have had this stamp set for years and years and never used it. I really don't even remember where it came from. This was a super simple, less than 10 minute card. I just used every stamp in the set on Old Vintage paper that I got on Amazon.

Virtual Stamp Weekend

It has been Virtual Stamp Night (week) at Splitcoast stampers with the theme of Rock Star. I only got up to the letter K (out of O) but had a great time with the challenges. This card above uses Stampin' Up!'s Up, Up, and Away with Tim Holtz sentiment and distress oxide inks.
This is also for The Library Challenge to be inspired by Jules Verne's "Five Weeks In A Balloon".

Thank you card challenge with Mark's Finest Papers stamps, SU stencil and distress oxides.

Color challenge of pink, red, and purple- Penny Black stamp with watercolor crayons and mister, sentiment unknown. 

Simon Says Stamp Gerbera Daisy background stamp colored with the requested colors of tangerine, purple, and moss.

Lawn Fawn "Duh-nuh" set for the rock 'n roll technique (on the bubbles).

To use something "sharp"- House Mouse stamp with Close To My Heart sentiment and stitching, SU retired paper.

Cloisonne Flower

I like to try working with seasonal stamp sets in ways that will extend it's use beyond that holiday. This set is called Spring Zen by The Project Bin and is a Spring/Easter set. I used the egg and embossed it in pewter and colored with Arteza brush markers. It reminded me a lot of cloisonne and the embossing is prettier in real life. Sometimes it is hard to capture the shine and depth in photographs.

Jolly St. Nick

Well, putting this Santa die together was like neurosurgery or the tiniest little jigsaw puzzle ever made. Maybe after a few I will get better.
I started with Tim Holtz distress oxide inks of Broken China and Chipped Sapphire and it looked icy so that is why I went with a winter card. Embossed this glossy panel with Sizzix 3D Snowflakes folder. Added a sentiment from Lawn Fawn (Believe in Yourself) and embellished with some Stampin' Up! rhinestone snowflake embellishments.
