I had fun making these clouds for this card. As the card came together though, the clouds got hidden, but that's okay, it still turned out cute!

Have a fabulous day!

Happily Grateful

I saw a few cards recently on Pinterest that used the Bokeh Background technique. I've only made one card using that technique so I thought I'd try it again. I really had fun with it and don't be surprised if you see more of this technique in the future from me.

For my card I was inspired by THIS beautiful card that I found on Pinterest. (Yes, I know, I'm a tad addicted to Pinterest!). I really love how this card turned out!!

Have a super happy day!

You make me happy

I have almost always stayed away from color challenges or even just color inspiration in general because I thought it would be too difficult to create something. Silly, I know. Lately I've been trying to do a variety of cards and techniques instead of all the things in my comfort zone so I decided to play around with color. I love color. I really, really do! 

In looking at some current challenges I saw that The Paper Players had a color challenge this week so I decided to dive in and play along!

Here's what I came up with~

The inspiration came from a card I saw on Pinterest. Yes, I know, I have an addiction to Pinterest. :)

Thanks for stopping by!! Hope you have a wonderful day!

Today I'm continuing on my quest to use all the Sweet Sunday sketches in order, this is #24!

I've had this cute mouse from Unity forever and I don't think I've ever inked him up so I thought he'd look cute on this card. What do you think?

Have a simply fabulous day!

Stampin' Up Sunday- Floral Statements

Today I'm sharing some cards I made with the Floral Statements set. I tried lots of different coloring/ink combos and came up with five different cards. I'm not so sure that I really "love" any of them and my family all liked different ones so who knows! LOL!

Here's all the images that I ended up with~

Here's all of them turned into simple cards~

Onto each card individually~

First I tried SU Whisper White Craft ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and colored with Prisamcolor pencils. I tried to heat set the ink and left it to dry but I still ended up smudging it quite a bit. I got frustrated and didn't finish coloring it but my hubby really liked this one so I made a card out of it despite my feelings towards it. :)

Next I used VersaMark ink and white embossing powder on Crumb Cake cardstock and colored with Prismacolor pencils. I wonder if I would like it better if I had some white embossing powder that showed details a tad more...hmm..

Next I used Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake cardstock with Prismacolor pencils. I think this one has a no line feel to it.

My next one uses Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Crumb Cake cardstock colored with Prismacolor pencils. 

My last one uses Memento Tuxedo Black on Copic Xpress-It cardstock and is colored with copics.

So which one is your favorite??

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
