Cast Every Care on Him

Hi there! Just a quick post sharing a card I made with some goodies from the Greetery! 

I altered this a bit and cut the ends off to I could find the centimes better. I added some Glossy accents to the berries and Crystal Nuvo drops to the mushrooms.

Distress Oxide Inks from Simonsays Stamps
Soft Stone paper and ink from Papertrey Ink

Barbecue Time

Tag You're It #95

Hello! Can you believe summer is almost over!
Here in California it will be warm all the way till end of October ((normally)

The cute little bunny is from my son and his fiancée  along with other crafting gifts
 he brought back from his trip to Japan. Perfect for holding a card or tag.

Well I only had one bbq stamps and its from a company not in business anymore so I decided to use this fun guy from MFT called : Recipe for Happiness. You just have to pretend the barbecue  is not on the tag but he is barbecuing :) I also used my Taylored Expressions blending brushes... that I LOVE.

The tag dies are from Poppystamps I will link below.
Cant wait to see what you create.

Peace to you all and God Bless.

Having Fun With Stand Alone Dies

 Hi there , hope you are all doing well and enjoying the end of summer. So excited for fall to come, even though it will still be a bit warm here in California. 
Before getting to work on the remodel for the weekend I had fun using the new dies from The Greetery. I had to wait for them to come back in stock and boy am I glad I did. No stamping just color any way you want, pink, red, white, etc... I used my Peerless watercolor you can do what ever you want.

 I used an older stencil( Texture Mesh) I had from Memory box and used my Distressed Oxide inks with a brush for the lower edge design. 

I posted this on my Instagram account a few days ago if you would like to learn how I did them you can go  HERE 

I can't tell you how easy and fun these flowers are to make!
I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer.
Thank you for the visit today.

Laminated Bookmark

Hi there, sorry a little late with my TYI
post today.

Simple Things Stamp Set from The Greetery.
these are watercolored and adhered to the bookmark. I went ahead and laminated the bookmark so the leaves wouldn't catch on any of the pages of a book. Then simply fussy cut around the edges.

Hope you have time to play along with us.

Best Summer Ever

photo by Lindsey

Hello ! I hope you all had a wonderful July!
I am the host for the month of July and chose this Echo Park Paper 
called : Best Summer Ever. 

 The card above was very simple to make , the sentiment is from Concord & 9th

I love this striped paper and thought it was a pretty backdrop for this Concord  & 9th  Florals Stamp set.

I used the TE ink blending brushes and some oxide inks to change the color of this popsicle then used a shimmer pen to try and make it look cold.

This one above is probably my favorite and more my style. I fussy cut the Altenew : Golden Garden stamp set, watercolored it with Zig pens. The jar is from the Greetery. Love that three step jar.

 Please stop by the 12 Kits of Occasions blog HERE to see the rest of the designers and the list of supplies in the upper tab.
I hope you have a wonderful August...fall is around the corner !!!!(kinda)
