You make me so happy

I like this big sentiment stamp. Also this stamp set come with a lot of small sentiment. Very useful. 

I used Distress Oxide Ink to sponge the background. Today I used the whisper white cardstock to make my card. To be honest. Bristol white paper is much easier to blend, special for Distress Oxide Ink. The result is more smooth. 

I splashed the water on the paper and tap the napkin on it to dry. I embossed the "you make me so" by gold embossing powder. And I colored the tiny flowers and leaves by Prismacolor pencils.

I cut the thin stripe for year from cheer designer series pattern paper and glue it under the Happy. To finish I added the pearls on the card panel. Then mounted the panel on the thick cardbase.

Joy Ornament card

Today I got up early. I am not a morning person. But I just had a idea for a card. I really wanted to try it.

I cut a circle on a white panel that is a little smaller than a A2 cardbase. Then I used the retired Stampin Up pine bough embossing folder to make texture on the on card. And I sponged the green color on the pine branch.

I cut a red glitter circle tag and covered the circle on the panel.

I made a white snow sky on the small piece white cardstock by cold diamond glitter. I also die cut small houses on the white card stock and colored windows. I used the foam square to add houses in front snow blue sky.

Before I planned to make a shaker card. Now I changed my mind to leave it open and added the snow on the ground and roof of house. Also I tired the gold thread on the red tag hole to made an ornament.

Snowy day

My daughter really hope we will have snow this winter. Actually every year she has the same wish, but in Texas it's not dream coming true every year. So I thought I could make a snowy day forest card fro her.

I chose the heavy weight watercolor paper for background. I water washed the sky first and drew the the trees by the flat top watercolor brush. After dry, I stamped the Hero Arts layering trees (the one is on the right up corner ) over my water-colored trees to add more dimension. I also watercolor the snow bank and tree shadow. I just made a little ice under the right tree.

I just ordered this Painter's Palette stamp set. I found I really like this stamp because I can add any paint on the frame. 

Today I painted the Lovely as a tree on the watercolor paper. I used the water base marker directly color the trees on the stamp. Then I embossed all images by clear embossing powder. At this time, Misti was very useful.
