Remarkable You III

This time I used the calla lilies! I stamped them once on the top layer and again on a scrap of Whisper White using Memento Ink. I roughly colored the two on the card layer but spent more time on the 2 on the scrap. I then cut the 2 on the scrap out and used Dimensionals to pop them up on the card. I used Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin' Blends to color the flowers. The sentiment is from  Daisy Delight and is stamped in Old Olive Ink. The cardstock I used is Whisper White and Basic Black.

Birthday Blooms

The cardstock is Crushed Curry, Old Olive, and Whisper White. I stamped the image with Memento ink and colored it with the new Stampin' Bends. The colors are Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, and Old Olive. The Sentiment was stamped in Old Olive and is from Daisy Delight.

I restamped and colored another.

The cardstock on this one is Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, and Whisper White. This time I didn't use Calypso Coral and didn't take the color to the edge of the petals, I used the Color Lifter to blend the color to the tips. The sentiment is from Thoughts and Prayers.

Watercooler Wednesday Challenge 143 - Gail's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Gail is the host for this weeks challenge!
I made a simple card with the Graceful Garden stamp set.
Today Stampin' Up! released Stampin' Blends new alcohol markers! I used them to color the rose from Graceful Garden
The pink marker is labeled Pink Pirouette but is much closer to Blushing Bride in my opinion. I used the regular markers to ink up the stamp with Blushing Bride on the petals and Old Olive on the stem and leaves then stamped onto Whisper White Cardstock. I colored first with the light marker the dark for the shadows and again with the light to blend.   
I stamped the sentiment from Special Celebrations with Old Olive ink and cut it out with Bunch of Banners Framelits. I sponged the edges with Blushing Bride ink and popped it up with Dimensionals. The card base is Thick Whisper White with layers of Blushing Bride and Old Olive.

Moon Baby

I  have been practicing with the new Stampin' Blends, this time with Moon Baby. Cardstock is Night of Navy, So Saffron and Whisper White. I  stamped the image with Memento ink onto Whisper White cardstock then used Night of Navy, Pool Party, Ivory, Daffodil Delight, Bronze, and Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends to color the image. I used the Lucky Stars embossing folder on the So Saffron cardstock. I felt it needed something so I added a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Watercooler Wednesday Challenge 141 - Heidi's Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Heidi is this weeks challenge host!
Cherry Cobbler and Dapper Denim are great colors for a guy card.
I used the stamp set One Wild Ride stamping it in Momento Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock. I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake Ink. I matted it with Dapper Denim and added it to a Cherry Cobbler base.  I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock twice first with Dapper Denim and again in Cherry Cobbler. I punched the first one out with the Best Badge Punch. The second one I cut out just the banner and added it to the first one. Popped it up with Dimansioals.

Watercooler Wednesday Challenge 140 - Libby's All About Birthdays Challenge

Libby is our host this week!
While cleaning up my craft room I found these unused card bases that Stampin Up retired. They fit the challenge theme so I figured I better use them up.
I used the stamp set Birthday Banners. I stamped the candle twice end to end so that I had a tall candle. I pulled my ink color from the colors on the base to stamp both candle and banner. The colors I used are Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, and Emerald Envy. I cut the banner out with the Bunch of Banners Framelits. I used Dimensionals to pop it up on the base. I used Wink of Stella on the flame. A fast and easy birthday card.

Watercooler Wednesday Challenge 139 - Kath's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

It's my turn to host this weeks challenge! 
My card might not be the typical feminine card, but I so loved the delicate lacey leaves as well as the greeting and I felt it works for this challenge.
Photographing the foil papers is hard to do!
The card base is Thick Whisper White layered with Year of Cheer Specialty DSP. I used the Envelope Punch Board to round the corners. Using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits I cut leaves from Silver and Copper Foil Paper. I stamped the sentiment from Thoughts & Prayers with Versamark on Whisper White Cardstock and heat embossed with the Copper Embossing Powder. I cut the sentiment out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and popped it up with Dimensionals.

Painted Harvest

The stamp set Painted Harvest is a popular set from the Holiday catalog. For the background, I stamped the acorn and the fern using Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede inks. I used Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape at the bottom of the card. I used Copper Foil Paper to mat the sunflower but first I used the Leaf Punch  (bundled with the Painted Harvest stamp set for a 10% saving) to punch the leaf out of the center of my square. The sunflower is stamped with Daffodil Delight, Cajon Craze and Soft Suede ink. I added the copper leaf as well as two more punched from Vellum cardstock behind the image of the sunflower

Watercooler Wednesday Challenge 136 - Gail's All About Birthdays Challenge

Gail is this weeks challenge host.
This card was so easy everything just fell into place.
Sadly the flower punches used are retired but any small flower punch you own would work. For these flowers, I use the small left over strips of Watercolor Paper that I have after cutting Watercolor Paper for other projects. I can't stand to waste such expensive paper. After wetting the strips of Watercolor Paper I drop ink onto them with an Aqua Painter. After the strips dry I punch as many flowers as I can, each with slightly different colors. I store them in containers to use whenever the mood strikes!

The Cardstock used for this card is Thick Whisper White & Peekaboo Peach. The ink is Berry Burst. I used Garden Trellis Textured Embossing Folder and the Stamp is Happy Birthday Gorgeous.

I made a second one trading the peach for Sweet Sugarplum.
