Hello all, I hope you had a good week. DRS designs has some beautiful new Sympathy stamps that we will be showing over the next few weeks.

For my card this week I chose to use the new Condolence stamp.

I stamped it with black ink on vellum the heat embossed with clear embossing powder. This was wrapped around a card that I stamped with the Double Tall Pines and colored with Copic markers. I wrapped a gold thread around the corners and attached it to a peace of dark green card stock then a cream card.

Happy Easter one layer cards

Happy Easter

I have been enjoying making these almost one layer cards so much that I thought I would share a few more.

For my first one I used the Lily Sympathy Cross

On this one I stamped it with Memento Coco Ink and colored with Copic markers.

I inked the greeting in two parts so I could stamp it separate. This stamp is called Celebrate Easter Celebrate Christ.

On this card I used the Easter Lily and Crosses  and used Zig markers. The greeting is Blessed with Gifts Easter Greeting.

And I have one last card to share.

For this card I used the Daisy Basket and Zig markers with the Springtime Easter Greeting. I did a a strip of lace across the top to cover a mark on the paper.

These are fun easy cards to make even if they are simple.

Have a wonderful day,

Sneaky Bunny

Good Morning, can you believe that Easter is only a week away this year is moving so fast. 
Today I have a Easter card for you.

This little Sneaky Bunny Flower Pot is adorable I just love him. It was colored with Copic markers. The scalloped oval behind the image is vellum that I rub with Peony Pink Nuvo mousse.

The background paper was embossed in a embossing folder and I rubbed the pink Nuvo Mousse across the raised areas. The bottom was cut with a die and the scalloped layer is vellum with Pink Nuvo Mousse. I heat embossed the Happy Easter Everybunny with clear over black on vellum and the Pink N.M.

Have a wonderful day,

Hi all,
It's almost Easter, and the trees are starting to get there leaves. Spring is here everything is turning yellow 😀 gotta love it.

This is my Nuvo Mousse card I used it for everything on this card. I start with the background I scoped out a tiny bit from the jar and added a drop of water then with a paint brush I brushed it on the Easy Dot Background   I stamped it across the paper with all three colors not minding if they overlapped when I was finished I added more water and did splatters across the paper ( colors used Peony Pink,Aquamarine,Cornflower Blue). For the Simple Easter Bunny    I used black, Color Box Ink and clear embossing powder then I just rubbed the Nuvo Mousse across the bunny's. The New Happy Easter Everybunny was done the same way. This was the easiest card that I have ever colored.

Have a wonderful day,

The Beauty of Springtime

Hi all,
What a week it has been, we have had some terrible storms this week one night the power went off at 9:00 and didn't come back on until the next afternoon. Today is beautiful with the sun shinning so I can see all the yard work that needs to be done I think spring is finally here.

My card this week is a Easter card that is very simple.

With this new set of stamps I found myself do this almost one layer stamping. I found that I really liked the look of stamping the Image and the Greeting on the same layer and it was super simple with the use of my Misty. 

For this card I stamped the Brushed Pussy Willow twice across the bottom of the panel and then stamping the new Springtime Easter Greeting in Memento Coco Ink I used Copic to color the image. This was layered onto a Lt. Pink die cut card then onto a cream card. I just loved the simple elegant look.

Have a wonderful day,

Spring is in the air

Hi all, what a week it has been, old man winter woke up in a bad mood, from all the snow in the north and freezing temps down south. All my beautiful azalea's were starting to bloom with the promise of spring only to be frozen and now are a ugly brown. Today promises to be warmer so my hopes for spring are anew. 

So my card this week is all about spring.

I started by stamping the Ducks Decoration and coloring with Zig Clear Color markers. The daffodils are from the Daffodil Frame that I fussy cut. The white embossed It's Spring is from the Spring Bee Happy Greeting. After embossing I rubbed Mousse Peony Pink Nuvo Embellishment Mousse over the top.

For the background I used the Nuvo Embellished Mousse in Peony Pink, Aquamarine, Cornflower Blue and a stencil. So now back to dreaming of spring.

Have a wonderful day,

Over The Hill

Hi all, I hope you had a great week. Do you every wake up tired that is how I felt Saturday morning I tried everything to perk my self up then I just settled on a nap. Sometimes you just half to give in and rest. And that brings me to my card today. I felt like this a lot when my  children were little. 

I think this greeting is so funny It's called Over the Hill I stamped it with blue ink and used a cloud die to cut the image. The hill was cut free hand and I used the Easy Grass Background. I stamped the Tired Walking Woman colored her with Copic markers and fussy cut. These stamps make a funny card.

Have a great day,

A Rose By Any Other Name

Hi all, I have been wanting to try the no line coloring for a long time. So this week when I saw that the challenge over on the Power Poppy Blog was for no line coloring, I decided to give it a try.

I decided to go old school on my stamp and us this PSX stamp.

After watching a lot of You Tube videos I felt ready to give it a try. I started by stamping with Mementos cantalope I felt like the yellow would go well with the red and green colors of the rose. To color the image I used Zig Clear Color fMarkers #022 carmine red and #041 lt. green and a water brush.

After so many week of not wanting to stamp this technique as given me a push in the right direction. The word stamp in the background is from DRS designs Script Font Background  

I am going to inter this card in the Power Poppy Challenge.

Have a wonderful day,

Amazing Love

On this rainy Sunday I wanted to share with you my Amazing Love Puzzle card. This is such a fun stamp that could be used in so may different way's it would be great for kids Valentines. For my card I was experimenting with different mediums.

I started by stamping with Versa Mark and embossing with gold embossing powder the                           Amazing Love Puzzle 
I add a little color with Zig clean Color pen in a few random places. I used the Versa Mark pad along the edges and glitter embossing powder. The frame was covered with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. This was layered on to another sheet with the glitter embossing powder along the edge . On the card I used Tearific Tape and Nuvo Gilding Flakes.
I was happy with the way my card experiment turned out it's a little different for a Valentine but it very sparkly. You just never know were a experiment will take you.

Warm Hearts

Happy New Years

I hope you had the best night. And I pray this year will be better than the last.

I started my card by stamping the Penguin Snowball Blast covering it with a mask then cutting a mast for the mountains. I used Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.

Copics were used to color the rest of the image. On the Igloo I used some white Wink of Stella to tone down the blue. 

The mountains and snow areas I used a clear Spectrum Noir pen.

I really like the new half circle dies that everyone is using. I don't have one, so I put my own twist on this and created my one look. I used a straight stitch die to cut across the bottom then a circle die to cut the rest. 

I stamped the Snowy Days Frosty Nights Greeting in to parts. And cut out with a circle die. The Winter Wonder Words were stamped with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. To finish it off I added a little bling to the punched snowflakes.

Have a wonderful day,
