I decided to work with one of my beloved Sweet Pea Stamps. I haven't been able to play with them in such a long time. And believe it or not, the image I used for today, I have never inked up before! Which is really terrible, because I adore this image. It's called Aloha.

Isn't this image beautiful? I loved coloring it. I used my watercolor markers and Copics. And, I stamped the image with StazOn. I have heard many times to never, ever use Copics with StazOn, but look, my friends! No bleeding! You just need to make sure that your ink is truly dry. Use a heat gun or wait a few hours.

I'll need to color this sweet duo up again soon, as I'm sure that once my daughter spies this card, she's going to want me to make one for her (she's 3).

I used my usual eclectic mix of papers and embellishments. Plus a "Lucky" banner from Inkadinkado. I used some of my favorite embossing powder (Amazing Glaze by Judi Kins) around the edges of the card to give it a watery effect. I loved putting this card together. I was so happy to participate in this "Green" hop, being a tree hugger and all! ;) 
Thank you so much for joining us and helping us celebrate Nature! Your next stop is the talented and crafty
Enjoli.  Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Christmas Package

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team will be sharing projects that fit the theme, "Dear Santa, I've Been Good!" I used the sweet Christmas Package stencil (which frankly, can be used for plenty of other occasions too!), and a scrap I had leftover from the Chevron Stencil. Check out the full tutorial below.

My Colors Cardstock: Dare Devil, Parrot

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
