Up the Happy - Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights Challenge

This month the Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights Challenge is all about one of my favorite colors ... Aqua! Of course, I had to create a little something and enter.

Up the Happy is the stamp set I inked up for my card. I started with a white base that I die cut using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I created my balloon cluster using the masking technique and then colored them in using watercolors. I decided to dress up a few of the balloons by using my white gel pen to add stripes and dots.

To fancy up my card a little bit more, I die cut a butterfly using the coordinating Up the Happy die collection and then stamped and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. To finish, I added a few sparkly sequins and clear drops and then attached it all to my aqua card base using white dimensional foam.

So happy you popped in today. I hope your day is wonderful!

Curtain Call Challenge - Happy Birthday, Lovely

Starting off this week by joining in on my first Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. My card today is similar to THIS card I showed a few days ago, but it doesn't have quite as much stitching. I thought this would be perfect to enter into the Woven challenge.

I starting by stamping 'lovely' in a coordinating ink color that matched the thread I was going to use. In this case it was Hero Arts Butter Bar. Next came the stitching. After that was complete, I moved onto stamping my flowers and coloring them in using the Copic colors you see listed below. To fancy each of the flowers up, I used my white gel pen and added dots and stripes. I love the result of this and can see myself doing this a lot in the future. For the final touches, I added my leaves, hearts and finished off my sentiment with 'Happy Birthday'. You can find the complete list of products I used listed below.

Thanks for visiting with me today. I hope you enjoy your Monday!

A Beautiful Day To Be You

Happy Friday to you! Just popping on to share a card that I created with a few of my favorite Concord & 9th products. You can find the complete supply list below.

This card features a colorful technique that I have done a few times now and absolutely love the outcome. Just a die cut sentiment and Copic markers (or any color medium) are all you need! :)

Enjoy your day!
