Flower Power

For this week's Sketch challenge I chose to do something very simple just like the sketch it's self.

With this week's card I also wanted the vocal point to be the wonderful

What I love about this DSP is the endless possibilities of the coloring, sponging and coloring with the Bayer, but the list just keeps going on to the possibilities.

 I used the Stampin Blends to color the DSP.  They come in all different colors!!
   - Rich Razzleberry Light and Dark
   - Old Olive Light and Dark
   - Daffodil Delight Light and Dark
   - Bermuda Bay Light and Dark

Baby Thank You's

I made 40 of these little note card thank you's for my Nephew and his wife as a baby gift.  They are expecting twins, can't wait to find out if it is boys or girls or 1 of each!!  I am so excited for them.

I also did a little bit more crafting and made these blocks for them as a gift.  
They loved them!!

So when I started writing this post the babies had not come into the world yet.  BUT they are here NOW!!  They had 2 sweet little girls.

Butterfly Tile

Image may contain: text

For this week's challenge Stampin' Up! has a punch that looks just like this tile.  But of course the 1 thing I don't have from the catalog yet is that punch!  So I have taken a different approach to this weeks challenge.  

For this week's challenge card is a technique that I am currently doing in my Technique Class that I hold once a month.   It is called "Faux Fresco".  Thank you to Lydia Fiedler for this great technique and card.

I thought this would make a great tile!!

For the background I used Watercolor Cardstock and embossed it with the Flutter Impressions folder.  Next I took Watercolor pencils and colored as shown below.  Then took a blender pen and spread the color around.  

I then finished it off with white acrylic paint and the clear embossing powder to all the the raised areas.  I did add the Happy Birthday banner to just give the card a little something.  I didn't want to do to much to take away from the background.

Make sure that you stop by all the DOstamper's that are joining us in this weeks challenge.

Happy Stamping!
