Sending You Buckets of Love

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a  card for the Casology Challenge this week.

Week 171 - Vehicle

The Cue Word this week is vehicle. Here is my card —



I am not really into clean and simple cards – honestly I don’t know my style yet but I like trying different ones and just being quite diverse. I definitely know that I am a modern card maker. I don’t fancy the vintage look that much.

With this card, the started with smooth white card stock from Simon Says Stamp. I masked the sky and grassy hills and colored it in with distress inks. I used Broken China for the sky and Mowed Lawn for the grassy hill. For the vehicle image, I used the Hero Arts Father’s Day set (I think it’s discontinued). There was a truck image with a heart and I loved it. I stamped additional hearts from Lawn Fawn’s Milo’s ABC to have some hearts falling of the truck. I colored the images with a combination of Copic and Spectrum Noir  markers. For the sentiment, I used a stamp from Simon Says Stamp in Versafine onyx black ink. I cut the entire panel from the My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle Stax and adhered that panel on to another white card base.

That’s it for this card. I will update this post later with the supply list.

Thanks for reading.

Happy Holidays


This card was made using the supplies from the Simon Says Stamp November 2014 card kit. This card was lifted of the RetroSketches blog. I was going to enter this for their sketch challenge, however I messed upm the dates and when I was about to enter the card, I realized that the collection period already passed. If your interested, this was the sketch I used —

Wednesday Card Day – You’re So Special

Wednesday Card Day Intro


Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card for the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge. The sketch this week is pretty straightforward and looks easy, but once you start making a project you realize that it’s not that easy than it seems. Here is this week’s sketch —



You're So Special

I immediately knew after seeing the sketch that i didn’t want to use patterned paper or washi tape to achieve the horizontal lines. So I decided to use watercolors instead. I used the Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads (please check the supply list for all the colors I used).

I decided to paint horizontal lines toward the right of the card. After painting all the colors, I stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts Truly Appreciated stamp set using Versamark ink. I covered the sentiment with the Recollections Silver Detail embossing powder.

To finish the card, I added some Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

You can watch the video here or on YouTube.


1. Strathmore 90lb Cold Press watercolor paper
2. Tim Holtz ink pads (Seedless Preserves, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Peacock Feathers.
3. Hero Arts set – Truly Appreciated
4. Versamark ink
5. Recollection Silver Fine Detail embossing powder
6. Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh

That’s it for this card. See you soon  for another another card and video.



Thanks For Being There


Hi everyone! I’m back with another homework card from the current Online Card Class – Watercolor for Cardmakers. Today’s card is a lesson from Day 3 where we looked into coloring images using watercolor. I was very inspired by Shari’s technique so I decided to try it out.

Here is my card –

Thanks For Being There

For the main circle element, I used the Quatrefoil background stamp from Stampabilities and stamped it on Strathmore Watercolor paper using VersaMark ink. I embossed it using the Hero Arts white embossing powder. I colored the different compartments with the Tim Holtz Distress inks. I swiped some on my craft mat and added a spritz of water and picked up the ink with a paint brush (please check the supply list for the complete list of colors I used). I decided to cut out the piece and make it a circle.

For the sentiment, I used the Simon Says Stamp Thanks set and stamped a sentiment. I stamped the “Thanks” on some Bazzill Candy Hearts card stock cut using the Small Banner Shapes from SSS. Then I stamped the second part of the sentiment on some vellum. I attached the panel to the front of the base.

To finish the card, I added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and Lawn Fawn. (complete color list in the supply list)

That’s it for this card. Thanks for reading. I will be back with more cards from the class.

I used brown card stock from The Paper Studio for this standard size card and layered it with kraft card stock also from The Paper Studio. For the picture, I stamped the hedgehog, tree branch, bird, and firefly from Critters in the Forest on white cardstock. After coloring and cuting, I adhered it on water color paper which I distressed with Tim Holtz distress ink in Broken China to look like a sky. I sat the 2 birds on top of the hedgehog and the hedgehog on to the branch. I stuck the firefly to look like it was flying around. I placed the blue distressed paper under the kraft card stock where I made a circle window. I stamped the sentiment “Thanks Friend” from the same critter set.

To finish the card, I drew white faux stitching lines with a Sakura white gel pen.
