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)

Ink Blending With Sentiment Stamping Only

CAS(E) this Sketch #330
Hello! I made this card last week and it was the first time using my new  Taylored Expression Blender Brushes ( love them)!


With the exception of the sentiment this card is all ink blended.  I bought both stamps and stenciled but only used the stencils on this card and the new blending brushes .
The sentiment is from The Greetery :Simple Things Stamp Set
The stencils are : Fir & Foliage No. 1 Stencil also from the Greetery. 
I fussy cut the tree.

We were blessed to have 9 of the granddarlings over yesterday for all day and night swimming.  Its was a crazy full pool we managed to play many water volleyball games. Today will be Mass and lots of rest :)
I hope you have a blessed week ahead.

Simple Things

Hi there! I found some time in the craft room yesterday (made some time). I had forgotten how you can lose track of time just crafting , so much fun.

 I am so loving all the new stamps from the The Greetery  I am still working on mastering stamping the Robin & Wren Stamp Set. I found with the Simple Things Stamp Set that I didn't use the second step, stamping as much. I liked just using the first stamp a few times with a darker color and partial re-stamping. I did a combination of water and ink cubes for the greenery.

On the birds I used Distressed Oxide inks and on the greenery I used Altenew ink cubes.

Thanks for the visit and I hope you are all doing well.

Tag You're It #91

Hi there! I hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July if in the US!

Summer Fruits this is the challenge inspiration for #91 Hope you have some time to play along.

I used Betsys new stamp sets from the The Greetery :Just Mason Around and Lemon Blossom . The card base is from Papertrey Ink :Don't Forget to Write. Simon Says Stamps Distressed Oxide inks and 
I added glossy accents to the lemon and lime slices but didn't like it too much so I restamped, you can see the one in the back with glossy accents. I feel it took away some of the beautiful detail of the stamp.
Happy July!
