Seaside Treasures

Hello crafty friends.  I love summers in Maine and spending time at the ocean, although I feel like I don't get there enough.  Dies R Us is starting a new challenge today and the theme is "Summertime Fun".
If you put in the word "summer" in their search bar you'll find tons of dies to help you create fun summer inspired cards.

 I used Memory Box Seaside Treasures, Impression Obsession Beach Fence, Small Grass, Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Rectangles and Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass, Gathered Twigs and Antique Linen.
Pop by the Dies R Us Challenge blog and join in on the fun!  You could be the winner of a $25 gift card.

Seas The Day

I love sitting on the beach, just watching the waves and soaking up the sunshine.  This image from Penny Black "Beach Baby" is so adorable and fun to color.
 This stamp is one that I chose for my design team spot for TupeloDesigsLLC.  They have all the Penny Black stamps and at really great prices! 
   
 I colored her up using Copics and added the scenery in the background.  I used a white gel pen to mark in some waves and the surf coming up on the shore.

The sentiment is from Stampendous "Ocean Wisdom".  

I'll be adding this card to the following challenges:
Seize the Birthday ~ Beachy Birthday
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge ~ Frame It

Water Colored Floral Bouquet

Hello friends.  I've paired up Altenew's Watercolor Stripes Cover Die with Avery Elle's Floral Bouquet stamps and dies to create my first project for TupeloDesignsLLC





I started by cutting the Watercolor Stripes die out of Canson Watercolor Paper and did an ombre wash using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  I stamped the Avery Elle Flowers onto watercolor cardstock and colored them using the Ziggies.  I die cut them out using the coordinating die and set them aside to let the pieces dry.
  
Once the flowers were dry, I added some sparkle to the centers using a Nuvo Glitter Marker fromEmber Glow.  I LOVE these glitter markers!!

I mounted everything onto a piece of glitter paper from my stash and stamped the sentiment from the Floral Bouquet.

I hope you enjoyed today's project.  All the products I used are linked above to TupeloDesignsLLC.

12 Kits of Occasion ~ May

Well, here we are again at the end of another month and that means it's time for the 12 Kits of Occasion gals to post their beautiful creations using this months super adorable kit from Nancy Penir of Artful Notions.  

I had the wonderful opportunity of meeting Nancy this past March when a group of us went to the Craft House in Newton, Kansas and Nancy is a true gem at heart and incredibly talented.  All of her cards are little pieces of art and her kit this month was a tribute to her country loving heart and her "girls" titled "You're A Good Egg".







  Thank you Nancy, for such a fun-filled kit!  I had so much fun playing with all the darling images and sweet papers.

Nancy has two guest designers that are both near and dear to my heart this month so I hope you'll visit the 12 Kits of Occasion blog to see how the other gals were inspired by Nancy's fun kit.    

Thanks for stopping by!
