Today I’m playing with water colors and stamps from Unity: She & He by Joslyn Neilson, Spring & Bloom by Angie Blom, Kit of the Month June 2014 In Love With Love. I watercolored the background then Stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with clear EP. for the chevrons and sponged over them with Distress Inks by Ranger. Then I stamped each element & watercolored and applied with Matt Multimedia.

Today’s card is a little note card 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches. I used Your Special Day Medallion Labels from Just Rite Stamps.
I Stamped the frame with Versamark and heat embossed with a combination of green and 2 blue embossing powders I put together trying to achieve a light tourquois or Blue Raspberry…it did not turn out exactly like I wanted, but it is what it is as they say. Then I cut a slit below the frame and inserted ribbons for the banner.

It’s been since June 3 since I’ve made a card! I’ve been dying to get inky, so here goes! I ordered Unity’s KOTM for June 2014 called In Love With Love. Here I used the daisy & sentiment on water color paper.
I Stamped with Versamark Ink, embossed with black EP and colored with water colors. The sentiment is stamped on light pink vellum & heat embossed.

Today’s card features Itty Bitty Harrison Hedgehog by Unity Stamps.
Children love small, warm, cute cuddly animals whether its a hamster, hedgehog or even (shudder) a white rat! And I’ve noticed that it’s the DADs who encourage getting these critters! So Harrison Hedgehog is running his little wheel all over the room, making tracks in the berber carpet entertaining young and old alike!
I stamped him on white paper & colored with Copics alcohol inks. Then I sponged a light blue. Next I cut 2 circles with Spellbinders Classic Circles dies and linked with strips of blue paper to create the rungs of his cage (and of course the sides are see through plexiglass that’s why they are so clear of course, wouldn’t want him to get loose ha ha) (no really nothing covering him)

Today’s card features Unity Itty Bitty Stamps called Boots, Class and a Little Sas and So Special, XOXO,
The focal point was colored with Copics markers and cut out with Spellbinders Labels Eighteen.
Since the curly Q covered up the spur, I glued on a red star for the spur!
The final touch was the teensie red houndstooth check that was also cut with Ironwork Accents by Spellbinders. This makes me think of all the wonderful Patriotic Banners we see around Independence Day aka July 4.

For today’s card I used little branches and butterflies from Gina K Designs, Stamp TV called Hope Growsby Theresa Momber.
First I stamped on water color paper with Versamark & heat embossed with clear EP. Then I wet the paper around each branch & pooled around each with Pearlescent water colors by Artist’s Loft found at Michaels. Then I did the same with the butterflies & pooled orange watercolor around them. Finished with a light wash of light blue. Including the card base, there are a total of Nine layers of paper.

Today I am using Tufted Vintage Labels Seven Background Stamp by Just Rite Papercraft.
I started with watercolor paper & stamped my background with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Black EP. Then I sprayed with water and applied pools of Pearlescent water colors by Artist’s Loft found at Michaels in the diTamonds and around the scrolls. I stamped another piece of paper & cut out the central frame & mounted it on a piece of heavy black cardstock before mounting it on the background and watercoloring it also. The central sentiment was stamped from Your Special Day Medallion Labels which is also from Just Rite. For my envelope I used a light weight designer paper that was white on one side. I stamped the background paper onto a piece of light pink vellum and heat embossed with black EP and adhered it to the inside flap of the envelope.
