May Your Day Be Filled With Sunshine–SSSC #270

SSSC270_2015may24


Hi and welcome to this week’s Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Love this sketch that Karen has for us this week!! As soon as I saw it I knew what I wanted to do!


SSSC270

I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base and stamped the sentiment from Blue Skies Ahead with Black Licorice dye ink. Next I did a watercolor wash on a piece of Ranger watercolor paper with Blueberry dye ink and a medium water color brush. I cut the edge with Stitched Basic Edges Die-namics, tied around some baker’s twine, and popped it up on foam on the base. I added a sun from Sun, Moon, & Stars Die-namics, clouds from Cloud Cover-Up Die-namics, some enamel dots, and it was DONE!

Another sentiment from Blue Skies Ahead was stamped on the inside.

Happy Birthday–C4C #287

C4C287_2015may23


Hey, there! It’s Crazy 4 Challenges time!! I’m still hosting and since this is my birthday month, and the gem is emerald, the challenge is to use green on your card or project. Any shade of green will do, as long as it’s featured predominantly. Happy Birthday to me!!

I started this card with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I stamped a piece of Sour Apple card stock with Versamark using my MISTI (love that thing!) and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, then popped it up on foam mounting tape. Next up is a strip of Sweet Tooth card stock with white embossing paste, applied through Grid Stencil, edged with Black Licorice card stock, and also popped up on foam. Next I added a couple of Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics strips—one stamped with Sheet Music Background and the other cut from Persimmon card stock. I added a Cross-Stitch Circle STAX Die-namics, cut from Black Licorice card stock, stamped with a sentiment from LJD You’re the Sweetest and Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. Finally I added an arrangement of Modern Blooms stamped on Modern Blooms Die-namics with Sour Apple dye ink, Peach Bellini dye ink, Persimmon dye ink, and Black Licorice dye ink, and finished off with some enamel dots.

A sentiment from LJD Birthday Greetings was stamped on the inside.
