Good morning crafty friends! Are you enjoying your spring? Everything is bursting with color here in north Florida. The azaleas are blooming all around with shades of pink, purple and white. We’ve been busy over the past month – planting a vegetable garden (tomatoes, peppers, lettuce and onions). We’ve also added a new weeping plum tree and two hydrangea bushes. I am looking forward to watching everything grow.
Here are two springtime cards using a lovely Petunia stamp from Creative Visions (found here) – this red rubber image comes in two different sizes.
On this first card I embossed the image in white and sprayed colorwash inks to get a bright watercolor effect. The butterfly punch is from Martha Stewart. The stitching on the white panel was done on my silhouette machine.
On the second card I take the same image and color it with prisma pencils and sponged with memento ink for the background. The background paper is basic grey and the ribbon is from May Arts.
Good morning and I hope your Easter Sunday is glorious! Here is an Easter card for you.
The image was stamped with memento tuxedo black ink and colored with prisma pencils. And embossing folder was used to add some nice texture for the frame, basic grey paper and may arts ribbon finish it off.
This image is from Creative Vision stamps – called Easter Egg in grass – and can be found here. You get two sizes of this stamp – this is the smaller of the two.
I’m just about finished with my Christmas cards – here are my latest two. I used the same stamp set for both with just a few changes.
In this first card the main image – colored with prisma pencils -is mounted on a tag created in Silhouette. Snowflakes on the blue cardstock are embossed in white. The coloring was quick and easy.
The hills are made a bit more festive by adding some Martha Stewart glitter – here is a close up
The main image and sentiment are from Papertrey, and the snowflakes are from Hero Arts.
The second card uses the same image but is mounted on a white base. I drew the hills in on the base card.
Glitter was also used here – both on the main panel as well as on the hills drawn on the base card.
Thanks for stopping by today – hope all is well!
Here is another example of stamping on colored cardstock then using prisma pencils to color in the image.
I colored the blossoms with a white pencil, then used a light and dark shade of blue over the white. Prisma pencils in Powder Blue and Copenhagen were used. I used a “spatter” stamp in white ink to add a little detail to the main panel. The sentiment is from Papertrey and was stamped and embossed in white. The pearls started out white and I used a copic marker to color them to match the blue used on the card.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Yes – another azalea card! This time in a more traditional shade of pink.
The image, from Power Poppy, was colored with prisma pencils and came out looking more like watercolors. I did watercolor the background with shades of blue, pink and green and added the grounding with a mix of watercolors and pencils. To finish I “spattered” some pink ink on the main panel and the card base.
The lower right hand corner has a letter pressed sentiment – here is a closer look:
