Caught a Bug

Finally got some time to make some new cards this weekend. I spent the last month or so making over 75 cards for people so the last thing I've wanted to do lately is make some more, but I finally got the urge to do so this weekend, and what better to start with than my favorite Caught a Bug stamp from Unity.

I colored my bug with my trusty Prismacolored pencils and used some foam tape to adhere him. For whatever reason I tend to go with stripes when I use this stamp and I have no idea why, but the paper is from My Mind's Eye.

One of a Kind Birthday

I have found myself to be in "vacation mode" for about a week now, but took some time out to complete a few orders this week. The first was this birthday hat card that I stamped (the stamp is from Unity) and then watercolored and adhered with foam tape. The paper is from K&Co. It's a very simple design but the colors coordinate well together and make it bright and cheery.

I Like You a Latte

My partner-in-crime, Doreen, celebrated her birthday on Friday, so I decided to make her a coffee-themed card because there is nothing in the world she likes better. The coffee cup rubber stamp is a stamp I got from my good buddy Lynn that I colored with Prismas. The DP is all from My Mind's Eye. I stuck with a mostly brown and white combo before adding a touch of the red to pick up the hearts in the coffee cup. The sentiment and image were adhered with foam tape for some dimension.

Birthday Wishes

My scrap pile is really starting to "pile up" and when that happens, I know I have to start getting creative. Luckily I had some scrap paper that looked pretty good together and made for a colorful birthday card. The card itself is a very basic design, so I chose to add a strip of purple cardstock for the sentiment, two small purple rhinestones, and some layered flower embellies to dress it up. Simple, fun, summery card.

Pocket Full of Daisies

I had a lot of fun with this card because I got to combine painting and paper crafting. First I did a very wet yellow background on some watercolor paper and then added some blades of grass with different shades of green. Instead of painting the flowers, I hand-punched them all and added rhinestone centers. Because the image was so simple, I was able to go with a really crazy background from K&Co to pull it together. The image and flower sentiment are both adhered with foam tape.
