My Hearts Pleasure



Good morning! Today I wanted to share my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper . We have a Food & Drink theme for this challenge. Here is the inspiration

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge 146 Food & Drink

The timing for this theme couldn’t have been better as I had just received my new TIm Holtz blueprint stamps!

Here is what I created


I started with a kraft card base that I distressed the edges with walnut stain ink. The next layer is a piece of SU Cucumber Crush, also distressed with walnut stain. The top layer is a piece of kraft that I die cut using the Tim Holtz Cabinet Card die and then embossed using the Tim Holtz wood grain folder and then distressed with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain inks. Now for the fun part! I stamped the beer bottle and beer mug stamps on Bristol Smooth Vellum cardstock with Stazon black ink. I then watercolored using distress inks in Lucky Clover and Scattered Straw. Once they were dry I accented them with glossy accents and added white snow paste to the foam area on the mug. After they had set up I fussy cut them and added to my card using dimensionals. To finish I stamped the sentiment on black cardstock with Versamark and then hear embossed with white and added above the drinks using dimensionals.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂


SIP Color Challenge #24

Good morning! It’s Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper. This week it’s a color challenge

SIP Color Challenge #24

Here is what I created with these colors

Best Thoughts

I started with a Basic Black card base and then a layer of Watermelon Wonder and another layer of Basic Black.  Next I cut a layer with water color cardstock and stamped the image and sentiment in Stazon black.  I used a aqua painter brush and Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush markers.  I took the markers and scribbled some ink on my craft mat and then picked it up with my aqua brush and colored the flower.  To finish I tied a small bow using the Watermelon Wonder lace ribbon and attached right below the flower.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed my card today.  I hope you can play along with us this week for this color challenge!

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂
