All supplies and overview of the release are at the bottom of this post!

For the first card today, I used the Wonderful Wildflower set, along with the Kaleidoscope background stamp. To make the card, you will want to start by stamping the images from the set on white card stock using the Midnight ink pad. Once stamped color them with Copic markers or any other alcohol based markers of choice. Cut them out, then using black brush pen, such as Copic go over the edges to mask off the white card stock, so it would blend nicely with the black background. Set them aside.
For the background, stamp the image onto Midnight card stock with Versamark and emboss with White embossing powder. Trim down to 4" x 5 1/4".
Die cut the Hello die from white card stock and fun foam, adhere them together and apply shimmer pen. Assemble your card and you're done :)


For my second card today I used two sets: Focus on the Good and Note of Thanks. To make the card you will want to start by stamping the images from the set on white card stock using Midnight ink, next you will stamp the 2nd step images using the following inks: Limoncello, Be mine, All that jazz, Lime rickey. Die cut them using the coordinating dies. Set them aside.
Make a top folding note card using Premium white card stock and trim the bottom of the front side. Adhere Black Tie Gala paper on the back. Next, you can stamp the sentiment using Midnight ink, adhere the flowers and leaves and you are done ;)

Impression Obsession Challenge - Send a little humor

Hi stampers!
It's time for another Impression Obsession challenge. This time around it's "Send a little humor" I used the My Brain stamp for my card to add a little humor. 
Before stamping the sentiment you'll want to make your watercolor wash background, once completely dry stamp the sentiment using Versamark ink and emboss with white embossing powder. 
Ass pearls and adhere using fun foam onto white note card!

Hero Arts: Peony Congratulations

Hi stampers! 
I am back today with a card using the new Hero Arts Peonies stamp set. 
To make the card you will want to start with alcohol marker friendly white card stock. Here I used the Catherine Pooler Premium White card stock. Next, you would need some very pale ink.I used Hero Arts Soft Granite ink pad and second generation stamping to get pale impression. Next color your image using Copics or other alcohol markers and add highlights and shadows using colored pencils (I used Prismacolor). Trim the panel and set it aside. 
Stamp the sentiment from the same set on Vellum strip with Versamark and emboss with White Embossing powder
To finish off your card, you'll want to assemble it and adhere onto Blush note card. Add some pearls for more interest.

Technique Tuesday and MISTI blog hop + Giveaway

Hi everyone and happy Saturday!
I am back, with yet another flower card! But this time I am using Technique Tuesday! For my card I used the Cherry Blossom set along with the coordinating dies. I stamped the image onto dark gray Mi Tientes Canson paper using MFT Extreme black ink and colored with my Chameleon Pencils. I had my paper still in the MISTI while coloring and made sure it didn't move. Once done, I inked my stamp using VersaFine Clair Nacturne ink and stamped over it ,then embossed with Ultra Fine embossing powder. I added some details with white gel pen.

Next I die cut Beautiful twice from white card stock and adhered them together. Before I die cut the sentiment I sprayed the card stock with Sparkle shimmer spray.
On another piece of the Mi Tientes paper I stamped LIFE IS and embossed in white. I assembled my card and added some Nuvo drops in white and glitter washi to add extra interest.
VIDEO IS COMING LATER TODAY
