Big Floral Hugs

Welcome, today I wanted to make a card for my Sister-in-Law who is struggling with health issues.  I wanted it to be bright and cheery and spring-like…since Mother Nature is not cooperating in our neck of the woods, I had to make it happen with art.  :)

I used my big floral stamp set from Sunsational Stamps, you can find their shop Here.  I stamped it several times in VersaMark clear ink onto Ranger Watercolor Paper and heat set it with fine white embossing powder.  I then used a rainbow assortment of my Distress Oxide Inks and added them here and there.  While it was still wet I splattered a couple of the colors on by flicking a paintbrush.  I wanted it to spread a bit and look all dreamy.



I stamped Big Hug from a retired Close To My Heart set and heat set it with fine white embossing powder as well.  I cut it into a tag shape, punched a small hole in the side and added twine I colored with alcohol markers to match the coral color of one of the inks and the card base.



I layered the panel onto black cardstock, added it to the card base, popped up the sentiment with foam squares, added iridescent sequins and called it done.

Ladies First

Hi Sistas and Gentlemen!  This month is all about the ladies at Sunsational Stamps.  I used the Lotus Flower digi stamp on today's project.  I colored this beauty with alcohol markers and fussy cut it out.  I added it to an alcohol ink colored Yupo panel, as I was trying to replicate a Monet-esk background.  I had so much fun making the panel.  I dropped blue and purple alcohol inks onto the paper and added Pearl Metallic Mixative as well as blending solution.  I just kept adding a little of each until I liked the outcome.  Word of warning if you decide to do this…. do this in a WELL VENTILATED ROOM.  I didn't take the warning seriously and got super light-headed, so I will definitely heed this advice on my next round.




Please pop on over to April Challenge which is Mother's Day themed and to get your free digi stamp by following the link Here.  We cannot wait to see your inspiration!

Mermaid wishes



I have 2 cards to share with you today.
I used my SIL program to color the images and create my scenes.
I had a lot of fun with patterns on these.


This card is a file I have from the SIL store, I deleted the svg files that went with it and replaced them with the digi's

Rainbows, Beads & A Chick

Hello, I hope you are having a chirpy...I mean chipper day! Today I made another Easter card using one of the adorable images from Sunsational Stamps Hoppy Easter to Some-Bunny Special set and you can find it Here to make some-bunny a card yourself. 😉



I used this super cute chick and colored her in with alcohol markers, I have been practicing my flicking and I am happy with how the 'feathers' came out.



I made the shaker element first by making a rainbow panel using my Distress Oxide inks in a wavy wonky pattern. Then I die cut the panel using my Your Next Stamp Funky Lines Panel die...so we had all sorts of wavy, wonky colorful goodness going on.  I cut two pieces of fun foam also, to pop the panel up.  I wanted to use a rainbow of beads from Queen & Co as the shaker elements, but I wanted to segregate them to keep similar colors restricted to their area.  Because the colors were wavy, I decided to make three separate sections and put a mixture of two colors of beads together, for example; violet and blue, then blue and green, etc.  I assembled the shaker adhering it to a base of medium blue.  I felt the color choice and placement enhanced my chickie and made her pop.



Be sure and check out this months challenge, the theme is ‘Anything Goes” so enter whatever wonderful project you are working on, you can find the post and link up by clicking Here. Good luck, we can’t wait to see what you all create!

Freezin' Season!


Good morning - it's Helen here to share some Sunsational Stamps inspiration with you today.

If you live in the UK you will know exactly why I've chosen this stamp and card!  We've had a lot of snow in this country and even in the area where I live (where we very rarely get any snow) we've had two lots now.

So I've chosen to use the 'Freezin' Season' stamp set:


You can find the set here on the website.

I used the snowman outline at the top of the stamp sheet togeter with the eyes and nose to the right in the middle.  I coloured the stamped image with Promarkers and used a sentiment stamp from my stash plus papers from Craft Creations.
