RetroSketch #111

Good Morning!

It's time for a new RetroSketch challenge, and this week's is based on this ADORABLE card by Arielle.

I decided to use it on a bit of a smaller scale!

The sentiment is from TAWS' set Bee Sweet and the little hearts are from Bee Happy, the super cute mini that comes free with a $40 purchase this month at the store.

Head on over to the RetroSketches blog for more fun inspiration using this week's sketch.

Happy Easter!!

be unique!!

Good morning!!

I'm here today with a quick share using the new TAWS bee unique and bee happy sets.
(be happy is the free with $40 purchase set this month!)

The hexagons are from Bee Happy.

To make the sentiment, I used the "bee" available in the Bee Unique set. Since I didn't use a bee image on my card,
I masked off the second "e" with washi, inked it up, removed the washi and stamped. 
It worked wonderfully!

To colour the end of the banner pink,
 I stamped the hexagon on the end trying to line up one of the points. 
It's off a little but but I think it turned out pretty good.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

more watercolour fun!

Hey there!

Now that I've tried the whole watercolour thing I am in LOVE with it.

All of my most recent pins have been watercolour in nature. :)
Using my Distress inks has worked perfectly.

For this one I used Avery Elle's new set Brushed.

I adore the font, and the brush strokes a splotches are fabulous!

BIC #51 revisited

Hey there!

Today I have a quick share, 
another card made using this month's TAWS Be Inspired Challenge photo.

Again, the polka dots took over so here's another one. :)

I cut the "love" out with my Silhouette (CK puppy love font). The rest of the sentiment is from Flower Doodles, and the birdie is from Birds of a Feather.

Storybook Clear Stamps Avery Elle Custom Panels Custom Steel Die

I have been in awe of all of the gorgeous watercolour cards that have been popping up lately and finally decided to try it out for myself.

Now, I don't have any watercolour paints, 
but I do have a LOT of Distress Inks. 
I just smooshed a bunch of different blues down on my craft mat, 
spritzed it with water,
 then grabbed a paint brush and went to town.

I stamped the stars in versamark ink and then heat embossed with clear powder.

I just love how it turned out.

Here's the blog hop order, just in case you didn't start at the beginning.
Start at Jamie and work your way down the list for some jaw-dropping inspiration!!


Thanks so much for stopping by today.
