30 Day Coloring Challenge day 15

Hi, I've got another project to share today. 

Even since I discovered that Hero Arts Shadow Ink does not smudge when I watercolor over it, I like using it for watercolor, I like the softer outline.  

I stamped the Hero Floral Nasturtium in Soft Granite on white card stock, masked it and stamp again to fill the panel, then watercolored.  The sentiment is stamped in same ink and clear heat embossed.

Monochrome Ornaments on a2z

Happy Friday everyone,

I am sharing a Christmas card today on a2z Scrapbooking.  June's challenge theme is Monochrome.  And that inspired me to make some monochrome ornaments.

Hop over to a2z Scrapbooking for details on my card.  I hope I've inspired you to play along.

30 Day Coloring Challenge - Day 14


I have missed a few days on the coloring challenge, my mojo took a nap!  LOL  But I've received the goodies I purchased using my Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers' Bloghop Super Sponsor prize from CAS-ual Friday, naturally I broke it out of the package and played!!  

I stamped the images from Peaceful Garden in Hero Arts Mid-Tone Shadow Ink Soft Granite, then colored with watercolor pencils then used a watering pen to blend the colors.  The sentiment is stamped in Tuxedo Black.

Digital Stamp Summer Travel Words duel on a2z

En guard!!

Those are the classic words for a duel.  Yes I am battling it out with my teamie Arlene today but in a friendly way of course.  :)  

We are both using the same Hero Arts Digital Stamp Summer Travel Words to create a project.

Here's mine, I created a CAS scrapbook page layout. 

I picked a few elements from the set for my page.  The 'Let's Go' is simply printed, cut and glued onto color card stock and trimmed.  The 'Play in the Sunshine' message I realigned to be on the same line for the banner.  For the focal point, a frame for a future photo, I copied, rotate and paste the airplanes from the 'This Way' banner to create the frame.  I am not very good at layering things, but this is a start.  And I chose card stocks and pattern papers in pale yellow, yellow and orange tones to stick with this month's challenge theme: Monochrome.  The number are die cut once on pattern paper, and a second time on black card stock, then glued together in an offset fashion.  

Now hop over to a2z Scrapbooking and check out my team mate's project.


Thanks for visiting.  I wish you a sweet day!

Christmas Cards 2018-Jun-10

Oh my I can't remember how long it's been since I made a card for my Christmas card stash?!  But that's going to change because I made one today.  I am inspired by Linda W. with this beautiful card, and I am CASEing her.

I have inherited a collection of these small cards (from my late mother-in-law).

And I wasn't sure what to do with them.  But I thought it would be great to use it for 

So here's my card:
