Keep Blooming

I'm back with another fun card featuring a new release from 
Sweet n Sassy stamps called: Succulents. 

For this card I stamped my succulents on Canson Mixed Media paper and colored them with my Prismacolor pencils.
To add just a bit more interest to my background, I inked my knitted embossing folder with cracked pistachio ink before adding my light green paper and running it through my cutttlebug.

Supplies and tools:
  • Succulents (Sweet n Sassy Stamps) 
  • Canson Mixed Media Paper
  • Prisamcolor Pencils
  • Knitted Embossing Folder (Richard Garay)
  • Conservatory Window Die (Sizzix) 
  • Baker's Twine
  • Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide (Ranger)

Peaceful Season

Today's card features a brand new Graciellie Design digital stamp set called "Peaceful Season."
I also incorporated digital papers from her "Rustic Winter Wishes" and "Rustic Wood" sets.

I printed my image on watercolor paper and colored it with Prismacolor pencils 
before fussy cutting around it to create a festive spray for the center of my card.

I layered my sentiment on a white background in my photo editing program. 
I then inverted the color and added a decorative frame before printing.

Autumn Blessings

I'm back with another Sweet n Sassy card! 
This one features their new release:  Autumn Splendor.
I decided to do something "outside the box" and went with some non-traditional colors.

I painted some mixed media paper with three shades of oxides (listed below),
 and then stamped my leaves over top and fussy cut them.
You can see one of those plaid stamps peeking out at the bottom of my card!
