Sea Street, Cycle Celebration

There is an awesome sketch this week at Stampin' Royalty!  That was how i came up with this little card! I just bought this Sea Street set, and i really like it! it basically has almost everything you need just in the set to make all kinds of cute cards! i love how you can use many of the stamps for making your own background papers, like i did with the rope panel.  The sentiment is from Cycle Celebration, and i used my marker to color just the portion of the words that i wanted.

Painted Petals, Bloom With Hope, Birthday Card

Oh, look! i made another birthday card! haha... I do seem to go through them quite fast, and this is probably why i always make my cards birthday cards.
This is another of my Stampin' Royalty sample cards, as this weeks theme is Watercoloring!

 I made this card using the Painted Petals Stamp Set, Bloom With Hope stamp set, and the Irresistibly Yours designer series paper, that let me just tell you how much i L-O-V-E!

I started by watercoloring the Irresistibly Yours designer series paper with Soft Sky and Wisteria Winder, then also watercolored a little bit in the main image panel with Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzazz. I then stamped the stems over the watercoloring, and matted the piece on Sahara Sand. I punched the butterflies out of Soft Sky and added some pearls, then i cut a small strip of vellum and stamped Happy Birthday on it with StazOn, then directly on the back, i used straight Wisteria Wonder ink and my paintbrush and colored behind the words. I then used a strip of Whisper White to line the back, and also added white brads to each side to hold the vellum and white strip together. it also gives me a place to put the dimensionals so they wont be seen.

I layered the pieces, adding some White Satin Ribbon and some White Bakers Twine along the bottom before adhering it all to the cardbase.  This is so much more 'frilly' looking than i am used to, but i really like the way it turned out :o)

You Plus Me

Here is my card for the Embossing Challenge at Stampin' Royalty this week!

I stamped the dots on the Whisper White with Blushing Bride, then stamped again using Versamark, then embossed with Gold Embossing powder. I dry embossed the Blushing Bride circles using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. I also used the You + Me stamp in versamark to emboss the image, then punched it out and layered it on a Blushing Bride circle. I used Gold Dotted Washi Tape from the Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape set along the bottom to give it a little more visual texture, added a white ribbon and mounted the whole thing on Blushing Bride cardstock! 
It was kind of an experiment :o)  here it is!

Supplies - 

Cardstock - Blushing Bride, Whisper White
Stamps - You Plus Me
