Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - The Alley Way Stamps
I started by stamping the ice cream from the TAWS Slurp set all over a panel of watercolor paper. Then i used my Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers to color them in. I was going for a almost messy watercoloring look, lol, by going out of the lines here and there.

While that was drying i cut out the matching SVG file for the big Sweet, then i stamped the sentiment on it. Next i used a black sparkly marker that i've had forever to color over the sentiment.

Next i adhered my watercolor panel to a white card base, then trimmed some white card stock and added it horizontally over the panel. I added the Sweet with foam tape and last stamped Thing below it on the white stripe.

I found a water color panel that i made some time ago, i used it to match some pattern paper to. On the pattern papers i stamped single lady from the set and again on some white card stock.

I colored the skin, skirt and shoes on the white card stock lady. Then i fussy cut different parts of her outfit and adhered them on the white colored image. Next i fussy cut her out.

The Kindness You Show

I started by die cutting some Crafter's Companion Kraft Card Stock with a stitched die. On the panel i stamped the women with umbrella in black ink.

Then i used Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils to color her, also i used SN's blending solution and paper stub to blend and smooth my coloring. I just love how colorful the pencils are on Kraft!

Next i stamped the sentiment to the left of the image. Then i adhered the panel to a black card base. I decided not to add anything else, and let the focus be on the colored image!!

For You

Hello!

It's the weekend!! Yeah! I get to do a little crafting and a little Chemistry! Today i'm sharing a card featuring a Crafter's Companion die, they recently release some new Die'sire Edge'ables Christmas Collection. I'm using Christmas Carol for a non Christmas card!

I started by using the die to cut some double adhesive sheet. Then i peeled off the backing on one side and added black glitter to the top part of the music notes, then added purple for the bottom. Then i peeled off the backing off the other side and pressed it on to a white panel.

Next i wrapped some black ribbon around the panel tying it in a knot. Below the ribbon i stamped For You in black ink. The stamp is from Crafter's Companion Inspiration Magazine Issue 7.

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hello!!

Today i am participating in the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! Originally i wasn;t going to, but a couple nights ago as i was waiting for another project to dry i got an idea and quickly cranked this card out in between the other project.

My idea started with the background, i used an awesome leave stamp set by Penny Black to stamp some leafs on some watercolor paper. Then i used some distress ink and water to color the leaves. I tried to get the watercolor look, but the colors blending to well! With red and brown ink added splatters, then set it aside to dry.

Then i stamped the coffee mug from Simon Says Stamp What's Brewing on some white card stock and again on some brown polka dot pattern paper. I stamped the Sending You a Latte Thanks below the white mug. Next i trimmed the top half of the card stock.

I fussy cut the polka dot paper and adhered it over the white mug. Then i added the mug and sentiment panel with foam dots to my card base. Last i added a few brown sequins.
