Up and Away with Watercolors!

I am always a little behind on the trends in stamping…But I am glad when I get caught up:


I finally picked up some Tim Holtz watercolor paper.  It is amazing! I can’t believe what a difference it makes when using distress inks.


I love using the gold foiled paper for the background and balloon!


The worse it looks while you are adding distress inks to the watercolor paper – the better it will be when it dries! Love that.


Shaking Chevron!

Here is one of my last cards using the chevron stencil and embossing paste!


I love this color combination and decided to make a little shaker card with this adorable baby giraffe!


Here is a closer look at the embossing paste after I added glitter.  Isn’t it just so beautiful? I love it!


Fun fact about giraffes: The age of a giraffe can be calculated from its spots. The darker the spots, the older the giraffe!

Oh Happy Day!

“Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof!” – Happy Happy Happy birthday!


I used adorable patterned paper from Lawn Fawn for this card.  I love the heart garland!


For the balloons, I applied a few different inks using my sponge daubers.  I have to admit now that I have my picture frame storage I am using a lot more of my embellishments (i.e. the white flower bling) for cards and projects. Such a great idea!

Thanks for visiting!

Tag You’re It!

I have to say…Who knew that tags could be so adorable!


I made these tags using the patterned paper from Lawn Fawn Into the Woods, and the adorable critters from Mama Elephant Up and Away stamp set.


I have to admit, I caught the Project Life bug and have been slowing putting together my photo book! I thought putting these tags on 4×6 and 3×4 cards would be so cute…




These make me so happy! Have a great weekend =)

Up and Away!

I saw on the Mama Elephant blog this adorable card that inspired me to buy this stamp set so I could make this:


Ack! It’s so cute!  I added glossy accents on the balloons and it looks super cool! More to come.
