More Stencil Fun

Inspired by Debby on Simon Says Wednesday Challenge “Stencil It. ”  IMG_2737 I love the colors she used and the overall design of her card.  I used Stampin Up Crisp Cantelope and Hero Arts Butter Ball Inks on the stencil background.  and the flowers.  I realized when I was done that Debby had run her stencil through the big shot first so the design was raised and I forgot to do that.  I think it adds something so will try that next time.

First Things First

Today, before posting anymore projects or challenges, I am going to The Blog Starter to find out what I am really doing.  I thought the best way to get a blog going was to just dive in.  Not sure that was the best way to go.  There are so many things to learn.

IMG_2726Love the card I made today.

Used Gerber Daisy Die from My Favorite Things.  Made a stencil from it sponged distress ink on Vellum.  Used the wrong side.  Sponged same distress inks on white cardstock and cut daisy out.  Added Wink of Stella to Daisy.

Card #44Played around with some techniques today.  Watercolor background with flowers embossed in white.  Distress inks.  Made a Thank You card.  Tried some shrink plastic flowers to embellish.  Got one good one but need to work on it.  See card #44.

Also made a couple of Mother’s day cards using some doily dies.  Gluing these little things are still a pain.  I need to work on it.  It looks so easy.

 

Would love to start doing some challenges but have to get this blog organized first so I can learn to upload pictures etc.

May 7, 2015 Live, Love, Cards Challenge

This is a card I made awhile ago.  I used Clean Color Real Brush watercolor pens.  Love the vibrant colors.

I am so happy because I finally was successful at entering it in the Live Love Cards watercolor challenge.  I just started this blog and have no idea what I am doing.  I thought I was pretty computer “savvy” but I guess not.  I’ll get better.
