The two new stamps are called Independence Day and 4th of July, I used both on my card. On a piece of Crafter's Companion Ultra Smooth White card stock, I stamped the 4th of July sentiment and the three firecrackers.

Next, I used a few new Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens to color the firecrackers, stars and fireworks. I used Hearthside, Gold and Teacup. It's super sparkly in person, its hard get a good picture of it!

From my stash I found some chipboard stars and I used my CR11 Spectrum Noir Marker to color them. I trimmed a piece of blue card stock and adhered it to a white card base. Then I trimmed the stamped panel and adhered it to the card. Last I added the colored stars.

Thanks for stopping by!!

I trimmed another pattern paper smaller then the white card card base and adhered it. Over it I added the stamped panel with foam tape. I also have the matching embellishments to the pattern pad and picked out a few to add to the two corners of the panel.

I stared by stamping the main image on some Crafter's Companion card stock and the sentiment just to the right of the image. Next I stamped the separate cherry blossom's three times on some scrap paper. Then I used my Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils to color everything up! I used 037, 039, 056, 058, 065, 066, 091, 095.

Next I fussy cut out the three blossoms. On the main image I cut a small slit at the bottom left of the the stamped torn edge. Then I tucked the blossoms in the slit and used some glue dots to hold them in place. I trimmed the stamped panel down a little and centered it on a black card base.

Hello You

Hi there!!

I'm stopping by with a card I made for Lawnscaping Challenge - #130 Sparkle It Up!  For my sparkle I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens for my background!!! It's a lot more sparkly in person then in my photo below, these pens pack a LOT of sparkle!!!


Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Lawn Fawn
I started by die cutting the stitched shape from watercoloring paper. With a big paint brush I added water to the shape and then I added Ocean Waves and Sage to the panel. Unintentionally I gave the Sage pen a squeeze and a big glob of sparkly ink came out on my panel. At first I was like oh &#*@, but then with a little water I spread it round and it turned out ok! I added a little Ocean Waves here and there and blended it in with the Sage. When it was all dry, I flicked water droplets over it.

While the panel was drying I stamped and colored the Starfishes and Jelly Fishes. I used Spectrum Noir markers to color them up! I used CT1, CT3, CT4, GB5, OR1, PL1, PL2, PP1, PP3, PP5. Then I fussy cut them out.

After the panel was totally dry from the water droplets I punch a whole in the top to make it into a tag. Then I stamped the Hello You sentiment in versamark and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

Then I went digging around my desk, I had some Lawn Fawn twine that came wrapped around a purchase that I was sure would match and sure enough, once I found it, it was perfect!! I cut 3 smallish lengths and thread them all through the hole at the top of the tag. Then with another longer length, tied a bow around the tails of the twine. Last I added the tag to a white card base with foam tape!

Thanks for stopping by!! I'll be back later this afternoon with a card featuring new stamps from Crafter's Companion!!

I cut the heart die from Crafter's Companion's Kraft card stock. Then I used the Hearthside Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen to color the hearts on the heart. I added the heart to my card base a little off center and trimmed of the over hang.

If you use SN markers I highly recommend Crafter's Companion Ultra Smooth White Card Stock! I've tried a couple different brands of card stock, but CC's brand really works the best!!

Once my coloring was done, I got out my scissors and did some fussy cutting!! When that was done I found some washi tape on my desk, an after Christmas on clearance purchase!! Here I decided to go with a black card base to help show off the gold washi tape!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Art Impressions

I added the washi tape across the card, then added my stamped image with foam tape. Last I stamped the sentiment in white ink at the top right corner.

Hello!!

I'm stopping in with a card today using a new stamp I picked up at scrapbook show that came through town a couple weeks ago! I picked up quite a few stamps, more then I really need, but it's nice to have all these different stamps in once place!! And of course no shipping charge!! :) I picked up a couple Penny Black stamps and my card today features the Poppy Gems stamp.
Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Penny Black
I started by stamping the poppies in brown in on watercolor card stock. Then I used some Prima Watercolors to color them, all from the Decadent Pies set.

 I tend to be heavy handed when I watercolor with real paints (verses distress markers or inks). I also have a hard time waiting for each layers to dry. You are probably thinking that's what an heat gun is for, but mine is on the other side of the room and I'm too lazy to keep getting up to blast my paper with some heat!!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Penny Black

When I was finally done messing with color, I waited awhile and then used the same colors to flick some blotches all over the panel. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Special Wishes stamp set. Last I added a few sequins and mounted the panel on a white card base.

Thanks for stopping by!!!
