Pink and Green

I love pink and green together. The combination makes me happy and can be used in so many different ways.  My first project is soft and elegant and makes a perfect all occasion card.

KC Magnolias 
I stamped the Rubbernecker Magnolia image twice on watercolor paper with versa and embossed with gold embossing powder. Using reinkers and a brush I watercolored all the images and cut out the flowers of the second image and popped up over the main base layer.  I used a simple scalloped oval to layer the flowers and placed over a sweet piece of green designer paper.  The finishing touch was a pink organdy multi loop bow.

The second project uses the same green designer paper mixed with it’s own coordinating pink and green backside. I thought this was a darling combination for a baby card.

KC Babies 10 
I stamped the Rubbernecker Baby Elephant on watercolor paper, painted and cut out.  I popped it up over a piece of vanilla cardstock with heart punched sides that matched the border dividing the two different papers.  I added the little pink hearts to match the hearts on the elephant and finished with a sweet satin multi loop bow.

I hope you have a great week.

Catching Up!

Hello Everyone. I hope you had a great weekend.  I have several projects to share with you as I haven’t been able to post on my blog in a while.  The first three projects are made usig the new Stampavie CHA release. You can click on the photos to get a closer view.

 Gillian Roberts Happy Family

I created a little scene around this Happy Family by Gillian Roberts.  There is lots of sparkle on the greenery and grassy area but I don’t think it shows really well in the photo.  Laurence Design Oh Happy Day

The cat and flower cart image is Oh Happy Day by Laurence Design. There are several popped up flowers in the cart bouquet and I love the dotted embossed  flowers and stems matching the embossed background layer.

 KC Gillian Roberts Flower Girl

The third project is Flower Girl by Gillian Roberts.  The little girl is dressed head to toe in paper pieced designer paper.  Even her floral bouquet is pieced.

 KC Safari 3

The Mother and Cub image is by Rubbernecker. I painted a little tree and green ground background and popped up the image and then surrounded it with punched foliage.

 KC Soccer 3

The last project is from the Rubbernecker Soccer set collection.

I hope you have a great week.

Fun and Simple

Good morning!  I have been away from stamping  for a few days healing from wrist surgery.  I’m doing great and able to get my fingers inky again.  I have a few projects to share with you today.

The first project is one that I created for one of the Papertrey Anniversary challenges.  It was very simple to put together but I love how the pink house looks with the punched greenery and flowers.

 KC Boards and Beams 6

The second project uses one of Rubbernecker’s newly released Create a Garden sets.  I added a punched greenery and flowers on this project as well.  I love to use red and olive together.

 KC Create a Garden Set II

The third project was made for the Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple challenge.  I pulled out one of my favorite Stampin’ Up! sets Touch of Nature as I love the image of the bird and branch. I like the green and brown framing with the multi loop brown bow.

I won't be posting new projects for a little while as I had wrist surgery yesterday for tendonitis.  Sadly it is on my right wrist and I can't hold a paintbrush and typing with one hand is slow.  It is nothing serious but is inconvenient and very sore.  Wearing a splint is a big UGH!

I hope you have a great weekend.

Stampavie CHA Release

Have you checked out the new Spring and Summer release yet?  There are so many darling new images.  I am excited to share two of my favorite release  projects with you. Both are new Tina Wenke’s images -Sent From Above and Storybook Friends.

Tina Wenka Sent From Above

I had so much fun with this little baby image floating with its balloon. The soft  multi loop bow , flowers and foliage seemed the perfect embellishment.  Here is a closer look so you can see the sparkle on the foliage and roses.

If I could possibly pick a favorite of the new release it would be the adorable Storybook Friends.  The minute I saw the image I knew I wanted to place them sitting in a garden under a shade tree.

Tina Wenke Storybook Friends 2

Instead of painting an outdoor scene around them I decided to use the delicious designer paper as a backdrop for the scene.  I sketched and painted a tree trunk, and applied foliage for the leaves.  The bench and girls were stamped on watercolor paper, painted and cut out and popped up over the paper.  I applied  the foliage and roses to create the garden around them. Take a closer look at these adorable little girls the sparkle on the foliage and roses. Have you ever seen any sweeter faces?

I hope you are enjoying all of our CHA release posts.
