One Sheep Two Sheep…

These Ombre Inks are here to stay! I just adore them so much!

I used the ombre inks for the thank you sentiment and background. For the banner, I turned it into a shaker banner by using a fun sprinkle of pretty pink posh sequins.

I thought it would be funny to shake the card and see the sheep bouncing around! lol!

I love the layers of vellum and cardstock.  It just makes the card feel really special and that it’s made with love!

Hero Arts Ombre Inks!

At last…they have arrived and Yes, they were worth the wait:

These ink pads are just so awesome! As you can see they have three separate ink pad strips in one.  The best way to get a great result is to pat the stamp back and forth so that the colors blend together.  I absolutely love the results.

The color combinations are great for sentiments and background stamps!

So excited because these ink pads are perfect for Spring theme cards! =)  Happy Spring!

Stamp Your Own Succulent!

I don’t have a green thumb – so here is my solution for the few succulents that didn’t quite make it the last few weeks…

TA DA! Create your own succulents! (I have the greatest BFF in the world! She sent me this adorable succulent stamp set so I could stamp my heart away.)  I created the background using watercolors and colored the little plants with copic makers.

I love this stamp set from Hero Arts because you can mix and match all the plants and flowers to make your own little creations.  For future cards, I will try and be more bold with color plants and flowers.

I say be adventurous and try your own!

Just the ticket!

Two tickets to a great birthday!

So I’m trying out new color schemes for my cards.  I normally love all the bright happy spring colors but I have discovered a world of browns, tans, and everything in between!

This is also my first time using liquid pearls which I used to accent the birthday ticket! I really like the fact that I can make the pearls any size I want.  Very cool! More to come!
