Celebrating Summer #6



I am back with another card from my crop. This is one of my favorites!


I used the MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge with my LJD Sea Life stamp set.


2015 Card 87 - MFT LJD Sea Life


I started by die cutting a piece of Canson Mix Media 98 lb paper with MFT Stitched Oval Stax and watercolored it with MFT Sno Cone ink on an acrylic block.  After it dried, I stamped the leafy image in MFT Sour Apple ink and the bubbles in MFT Berrylicious ink.  I then die cut the fish with the coordinating dies with MFT Sweet Tooth cardstock and stamped the images with MFT Orange Fizz and MFT After Midnight inks.  The sand dollar was stamped with SU So Saffron ink and attached to the sentiment piece which was stamped in MFT After Midnight ink.  The patterned paper is from Echo Park Splash.  The card base is MFT Berrylicious cardstock.


Here is the sketch~



Have a great night!

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.

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!
