More from the road

During my 2 weeks plus visit to my Dad's home in California, I had hoped to get a little crafting done. I brought a Hero Arts Sentiment set, Inktense Pencils, a set of Alcohol Markers (Colorit-set of 50 with a cool case) and several pre-stamped panels and stamped die cuts from Betty and LaVon.

While here I purchased some Spectrum Noir Watercolor Markers (I am underwhelmed with first use...but that might be the paper will give another shot with my usual paper back home). I have a set of colored pencils that I leave here. 

My Dad and I had a shopping day in Orange County and we stopped by Stamp Fever where he picked up my tab...I was good- I picked up two stamps  -- the Daffodils by Stampendous and a cute set of cats by Gerda Steiner.

Thanks for stopping by!

Scrambling on the road

A quick post from my IPad. I was lucky enough to participate in Greta's Hero Arts Scramble last weekend.  Luckily among the pre-stamped panels I brought with me to California, I had the Hero Arts Delicate Blossom, which was part of a happy mail pkg from La Von.   Thanks so much for stopping by!

Coral and Blue

As soon as I saw this Penny Black collage stamp, I knew the first colors I would want to use would be a coral/red and an aqua blue, and definitely my copics...it was time for them to come out to play again.

The sentiment strip and butterfly are mounted above the flat panel, they are part of the original stamp, I stamped the lower portion twice so I could raise that up a bit. I admit to stealing that idea from my crafty friend Peggy...she was with me at a crafty gathering when I brought this stamp along...and she mused that it might be fun to fussy cut the butterfly. I put foam dots under the upper wings so that they almost flutter.

This is another predated post while I am on the road. Thanks much for stopping by!

Split Card

A quick post, I am visiting my Dad in California.  So this is a scheduled post incase I have no time to make and post a card while I am away.

The flower set is by Stampin Up, colored with water color pencils and the die cut for the panel is from PTI.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Thanks for stopping by!

Feel Better

A friend was ailing, so I hurried and made a card to mail as soon as I heard.  I need to have more of this kind of card on hand.  I love this set by MFT.

A few cards

I found a few card photo's that I haven't posted yet so I am going to get them done.  The first two were created while crafting with my crafty friend Peggy.  I had just discovered watercolor pencils.

 These were brusho experiments.  I wasn't fond of the panel, but when I cut it in half and made small thank you note cards...I kinda liked the messy artsy look.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I am hosting a Scramble

Today I host the Scramble over at the Hero Arts Flickr group.  My theme was to create a focus panel, then CUT it up to make a card.  Sometimes we just need to have fun and make fast cards.  I made 3 panels and turned them into these 6 cards in less than two hours.  They are bright and cheery, and perfect for a quick little note.

The scramble runs until 1:30 PM EST, here is the link to play or check out what the participants have done.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

February Card Chain Challenge

Hi there, this month I landed behind my friend Greta.  Of the options available I used embossing and used both heat and dry embossing for my card.

Somehow I couldn't bring myself to put a sentiment on the front.  The stamp is Winnie and Walters new Bed of Roses.  I couldn't resist it when it came out, fab price point and so much can be done with these lovely line drawn roses.

Thanks for stopping by!
