Having Fun With Watercolors!




Hello! Welcome to the hop!

by  Heather 




Yes, it looks like I used my  Stitches & Swirls Stamp Set for another blog hop! :) It just worked ! I focussed on the tinny flowers with the needle and thread, and the gingham envelope. I used an old Valentine pack of paper. 
I have not been home much , very busy summer. So sorry I am behind on my commenting. 

Enjoy the hop! 
God Bless

Same Stamp, Painted Three Different Ways




Only this card below is for the MIM challenge.

  
This card below is stamped and painted with shimmer watercolor paints I found at Michael’s Craft


 This last card was first heat embossed then painted with the shimmer paints. I think I like this one best.  


Hi! The first card is made for MIM. I am not happy with the results and will try again, if I find the time. I do love the technique! I dropped my stamp on the finished card but still decided to post it. 

Thanks ! 
God Bless

I am also adding this one to the Curtain Call Anniversary Challenge.

Thanks Lindsey


Welcome to Sketch # 25 . At first I thought this was going to be hard ... boy, was I wrong! So fast and easy for me. I even used some dies that were sitting on my desk.  The top flower is an inlay that I stamped.
 The design team has some wonderful inspiration for you HERE.

 Thank You for Stopping by!

I was asked to cool off!




The design team has been asked to : Cool off! I decided to use cool colors, this is Royal Velvet, not black. Also still use twine. All you have to do is use twine and Serendipity Stamps or dies on your card. 


A random winner will receive a sampler package of assorted twine from : The Twinery!  


Curtain Call is celebrating their 1st. anniversary



Hello , I hope life is treating you well!
 I wanted to make an CAS card.  I masked off my bird and then stamped the feather, added a bit of sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. I used a tiny bit of Glossy Accents to add my twine , it kept it in place very nicely.  Did you notice I cut the tail off my word die again. I love the elegant tail but need to place it close to the bird. I love how it give it another look.  
Please check out what the rest of the design team has made.

 The sale this week is buy 3 get 4th item free, through July 23

Clear Envelope Shaker



by Dawn



I placed sequins in the Clear Envelopes cut and taped, close to edge. Very simple, then I added my foam tape.
As you can see I tried the turkey first, it overlapped too much.



 Good morning! 

Weekends are always so busy for me with my large family, not too much craft time.  One reason I love MIM... it's usually the first card I make for the week just for fun!

We had three granddaughters stay with us for a few days. So much fun , swimming, crafting ( for them) S’mores by the fire pit . We even had a baby bird fly into the house when we were going out to look at the bright moon. After lots screams and the baby bird flying around,  we were able to safely get the baby bird outside. 

I liked Lisa’s stitched frame  so I did the same.

 Thanks for stopping by.

We Could All Use Some Of This!





I haven’t  played in a while , but made sure I found some time today. I so wanted to make a card for last week : White on white, but never found the time. 

The little town looks so peaceful to me!

Sorry my picture is a bit dark, and the embossing is not showing up. I would have used my very favorite Mistletoe  stamp but I think I used it twice already for Merry Mondays. You can see it HERE. I think I used green in my last three post, don’t usually do that.

Thanks for stopping by!

One more for Virginia’s Challenge!


Good morning! I missed playing along last week in Papertrey Inks MIM and I was not going to miss this week. Love this fun way to pop up your dies,  by Betsy Veldman. I will admit it took me 4 try’s to run my die through without cutting all the way through the paper......my top plate kept slipping. Love the end results!

After I checked my messages on FB, a day late, I was shocked to see that Jackie Rockwell asked me to be on the design team for her brand new: Tag You’re It Challenge. Yes, I was very excited and honored to be asked to be a part of this wonderful and talented group of designers. 



 I used my Thanks Die from Serendipity Stamps. I just snipped the tail off the k.  I heat embossed my confetti dots from Paper Source. After I make my bow I stick the tail in through the front.
