Lady and Flowers - Stampendous

April means new release at Stampendous.  Which also means it's going to be a fun week over at the 
Stampendous Blog. This week you can see lots of inspiration from all of my team mates.  Lots of fun new mixed media images, House Mouse Designs®, and of course traditional Stampendous images.  

Guess what's new....DIES!!!  Yup, there are dies to go with their new release of jumbo stamps.  Here I used some of them to create a canvas with lots of colorful flowers.  
Seriously, dies include...hydrangea's, butterflies, and two different florals.  Both with 3 dies each so you can layer to your hearts content.  HOT DIGGITY DOG!!!  

here is the color palette :)

Tiddly Inks New Release

Tiddly Inks New Release is here....


Meet Zoe - Too Cute-Licious.  I wanted to create a beautiful vintage look.  To accomplish this I colored with Copic Markers first then airbrushed all over, including the image.

Once I had the colors down, texture with burlap and blending solution.  Finished by embossing with chunky white embossing powder and aged gold embossing powder from Stampendous.

The card is framed with Spellbinders Card Creators Dies.  This one is Fanciful Lattice.  It is also airbrushed and textured.

Here is the color palette :)





Stampendous Release Week Is Here!

It's time to take a little sneak peak at what's new from Stampendous!!!

Here I am sharing W132 Classic Frame with SSC1199 Loving Messages. I've paired them together with dies from Spellbinders to create a clean and elegant card.  

The fun part is I stamped the Classic Frame with Copic Marker.  It's easy....Color the stamp with a couple markers.  Here I used BV 23 and 29.  Spritz with blending solution and stamp.  It leaves a nice watermark effect.  

Ok, now don't forget to visit the Stampendous blog all week long :)

Happy Birthday Mom

Happy Birthday Mommy!!!
Thank you for being such a wonderful Mother and Friend.
I love you.

It's so great having a crafty mom who appreciates and supports what I do.  It's great having a mom who listens to me bounce ideas.  It's great having a mom that doesn't hesitate to jump in and help me move.  It's great having a mom that will sit quietly with me and just create and play.  It's AWESOME having "My Mommy"
This was a joy to color and make.  Yet another I had no plan, it just came together.  The final piece of air brushing over the entire colored image was last minute and I am so pleased with the result.

Here is a quick little step out tutorial.  You can apply this to almost any image you color :)


Here is the color palette...feel free to pin it :)
