Double D, Black And White Only

Good Morning! 



A brand new Challenge is up and running over at the Double D Challenge Blog





Here is your Inspiration Tile:

Double D, Black And White Only





Here's my card:





I was drawn to the balloons and butterflies from the Mood Board.  
Using an Embossing Folder I dry embossed my background in a Happy Birthday Motif.
The balloons were created using the Impression Obsessions Birthday Balloon die.  
I sponged a bit of Dove Grey ink on the White ones to add a bit of dimension.
I 'planted' them into the Simple Garden Pots die cut by Memory Box, adding Baker's Twine strings.  The little butterflies were cropped using a Memory Box die, Butterfly Exhibit





A Vellum strip was heat embossed using Black Embossing Powder.  
Happy Birthday sentiment by Gina K Designs, Pleasant Plurals stamp set.
Inside stamp also by GKD, Happy Spring.
Amalgam Black ink.

This card came together rather quickly.  I'm somewhat amazed when that happens lol

This card will be entered into the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, No Designer Paper.

Kindness, Just Because

Good Morning!

I'm going to say that Spring has arrived here on Cape Cod....hope I just didn't jinx myself!
The air is warmer and things seem to be greening up a bit.
YAY!

This first card will be entered into the following Challenges:

Simon Says Monday, Beautiful Blooms.
Stamping Sensations, April Showers Bring May Flowers.
Power Poppy, On The Grid.
Allsorts, Blossoms, Butterflies, Bugs.
Penny Black, Springtime.





I used the Everything's Even Rosier stamp set by Power Poppy.   
Stamped in Amalgam Black ink and colored with Copic Markers.  
Then I sliced the image up into 1" squares.  But, first I added a sheet of double sided adhesive to the back of the image.  Made it so much easier than using my large ATG Adhesive Gun.




Placed all the images onto a piece of pretty Blue card stock and then swiped my Versa Mark Ink pad all over, doused with Clear Embossing Powder and then heat set it.  
This shines so much, looks like little pretty tiles!
Of course, nearly impossible to capture in a photo.

Added a sentiment stamped in Island Indigo ink and heat embossed with Clear Powder.






My next card will be entered into the 
Challenge at Gina K Designs, Ombre Ink Blending.



This was a very simple and quick card to make.  

Using the Gina K Designs Bitty Blossoms stamp set, I stamped my floral image 
using Versa Mark ink and White Embossing Powder which I then heat set.





Using inks in;  So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, 
and Calypso Coral I created my ombre background.

I die cut my sentiment using the Simon Says Kindness die, 
which I also used my inks on to make the ombre effect.

Added some 'dew drops' using Nuvo Drops in Crystal Clear.

Quick and easy.  No added postage. lol




Thanks for stopping by.

HAPPY SPRING!!!

Double D, Watercolor

Good Morning!

This is a pretty straight forward card.  Nothing fancy, no frills.
BUT, I do love it.  
This Memory Box die cut, Row Of Poppies is one of my most favorite things to water color.  They are just perfect!
I did die cut a 2nd set of poppies in black and offset it on the back 
for a little bit of depth and dimension.






Scallop Frame is from PTI, Shakers And Sprinkles.
As you can imagine, this was a super quick card to create!
