Watercoloring or Alcohol Markers?

Hello Friend! 

So happy to have you stop by! I am wondering what your go to coloring medium is, watercolors or alcohol markers? I love coloring with both mediums and have done just that with the floral borders stamp set. 

Today's card process can be seen here:

Check out the finished cards.



This watercolor card has such soft colors. This card was cut down by 1/8 of an inch on all four sides. The Card was adhered to silver foil paper using fun foam between the layers. A few sequins finish this card off. 
The alcohol markers really pop and make this piece stand out! This, just like the watercolor panel was cut down by 1/8 of an inch on all four sides and adhered to silver foil paper with fun foam in between the layers. You can see three sequins in the lower left hand corner to finish the card off.

Get Inky

Hello Friend! 

So today's post is a challenge for you to try! I, along with the rest of the design team at H2H challenges want to see you get inky. 



What does "Get Inky" mean? Well, it means whatever you get inky means to you. Perhaps that is sponging, or ink blending,  maybe it's rock n roll stamping, or repeat stamping, whatever comes to mind when you think ink. 

I truly hope my project with the June Stamp of the Month showing off repeat stamping and ink resistance helps inspire you to join this challenge and get crafty! 

If you {heart} Close To My Heart, then this challenge blog is for you! Please read our revised rules, HERE

After you read the rules be sure to come back here and direct link* to your challenge post so we can see your artwork!

Have fun!

Every hour on the hour, I have my group of crafty friends a list of items that had to be on a layout. Then I have them an hour to complete it. Having starting points for your pages is a time saver, and a GREAT stash buster. 

All of my layouts were made using scraps from the Hillside cottage collection, and You are enough collection. Check out my workshops for each of those here and here. 

Let's see what we did:
9am challenge: 1stripe at least 1 inch wide.

10am challenge: a Scalloped border

11am challenge: A large Circle 

12pm challenge: striped paper.

1pm challenge: A banner. 

2pm challenge: Break the layout into thirds. 

3pm challenge: shapes to make a border 
4pm challenge: 3 shades of a color family
Thanks for checking out my groups virtual crop challenge!

Hey Friends,

So glad to have you stop by! Sprummer is happening where I am right now. You know, when spring is one day and summer is the next and so on... sprummer.

Layout one:
This fun collection was paired with the moments with you stamp + Thin cut set. You can see this used in different ways on each layout. 

Layout 2:
Check out those beautiful leaf die cuts. These cuts are scattered throughout the collection in clusters similar to those on layout 2.

Layout 3
My personal favorite of the 3 double layout sets... have you seen the Hillside wooden shapes yet? You can spot some of the flowers here in layout 3. Perfect accent. 

Cover layout:
