Celebrating Summer #5



Good morning!!


I am sharing a card I made for Freshly Made Sketches’ 200th sketch celebration.  This was a fun card to put together!


2015 Card 86 - Kraftin Kimmie Nerissa



I stamped Nerissa from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps in Ranger Archival Watering Can on Canson Mix Media 98 lb paper.  I colored her with a combination of Derwent Inktense pencils and Prima watercolor pencils and blended them with the Tim Holtz detail water brush.  Then I fussy cut her and glued her down to the wave background. The background was embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder.  The sentiment is from MFT LJD Sea Life and I added Pretty Pink Posh Sunny Days sequins to finish the card off.


Here is the sketch~

Celebrating Summer #4



I’m back!


This is one of the cards I made yesterday. It is for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge.


2015 Card 85 - MFT LJD Sea Life


I started out by watercoloring a piece of Canson Mix Media 98 lb paper using MFT Berrylicious ink on an acrylic block.  While it was drying, I cut out a few dies from the MFT LJD Sea Life set and then stamped them with the coordinating images. Once my paper was dry, I stamped an image from the Sea Life set on there using MFT Limelight hybrid ink.  The patterned papers are from Echo Park Splash and I cut the waves in the background from Berrylicious cardstock using TE Build a Scene Rolling Waves dies.


Here is the sketch~



Have a great night!

Celebrating Summer #3



So I have been a super lame blogger with my “Celebrating Summer” month…I want to share a card I made at the last crop before I start posting what I made yesterday.


This little mouse was colored with Derwent Inktense pencils and I used a sketch from Retrosketches posted that same day.  The paper is ancient Echo Park Splash.  A very easy card to create!

I will be back with another card or two later!

Celebrating Summer #2



I have lots to blog but little time lately! I am just barely getting this card in on time for Sketch 372 at Sketch Saturday.

This cutie pie mouse is Cocoa Mouse from Sweet N Sassy Stamps. He has been hanging out in my stash for years uninked.


Cocoa was colored with Derwent Inktense pencils on Tim Holtz distress watercolor paper. I cut him out with my MFT Stitched Circle Stax. The wave was cut with a wave border from Taylored Expressions. Paper is Splash by Echo Park from many summers ago.

Here is the sketch~


That’s all for now. Have a great day!
