An {EMERALD FAERIE} Blessing

I've had this Emerald Faerie rubber stamp for quite some time, but I've only inked it up a few times.  I'm going to have to keep it closer at hand because I absolutely love this baby faerie!


I believe the Emerald Faerie stamps are now all digital (the shop is here) and I'm not sure where I got this "Ashee" stamp in rubber form, but I'm glad I've got it. 


I stamped the image onto a die-cut watercolor paper panel and watercolored it with Distress Inks.  I layered the panel onto a base of pattern paper and some frayed cheesecloth.

I decorated it with a handful of different flowers from {I Am Roses} -- R21-15 white roses, S3-839 green cherry blossoms, S3-151 white cherry blossoms and ZQL20-151 white leaves.  I inked some of the blossoms and the leaf with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.  I typically get all of my flowers in white for this reason... they can easily be altered to match any color scheme!


I'm linking this little baby to the following challenges:

{PAWSITIVELY PERFECT}

I was able to fit in a second crafty moment yesterday and the first thing I reached for was my Reverse Confetti collection.  I love it all...especially the {Puppy Love} set:


Who's a cute puppy?! You are! You're a cute puppy! Yes you are!

I first stamped the puppy and bowl onto watercolor paper and watercolored them with Distress Ink markers, then die-cut them with the coordinating dies.  I stamped a part of one of the sentiments that is included with the set.


I'm linking this li'l puppy to the following challenges:

{LOVE YOU ALWAYS}

I've got a quick card share today... something pink and frilly and girly and super cute! :)


I stamped one of the cuties from The Greeting Farm's retired {HOPE and GRACE} stamp set onto watercolor paper and watercolored her with Distress Ink markers.  I decorated the rest of the card with some die cuts and doodads that I had lying around.

The background polkadot paper is actually bright pink, not red as it's showing here, but it still fits in with her pinkish-red dress I think. :)


I'm linking her up to the following challenges:

{HAPPY BARKDAY, PAPER SMOOCHES!}

{PAPER SMOOCHES} is turning four this month!  I fell in love with Kim's drawings the very first time I saw them a few years ago...they are just so dang adorable.  I made a birthday card featuring some Paper Smooches goodies to help them celebrate:


This little guy is from the Birthday Buddies stamp set.  I stamped him onto watercolor paper using Distress Ink. I then water colored him using the same color Distress Ink marker.



I'm linking this card to the current {PAPER SMOOCHES SPARKS} challenge:

{FOR YOU}

I was asked recently to make a dozen invitations to a Valentine's Day party that will be happening later this month. What a great opportunity to use more of my new goodies from {REVERSE CONFETTI}!


These are just a one-layer panel, allowing the party information to be printed and adhered right to the back.  I cut the panel from white card stock using a stitched rectangle die from My Favorite Things.  From there, I cut a bunch of layers from the Reverse Confetti "Confetti Cuts" dies (all listed below).


I also die cut and stamped a rose from the Rosie Posie set from Papertrey Ink.
I stamped a couple of leaf images from the RC Fresh 'n Fruity stamp set and cut them out.
I added some enamel dots around the page for some added cuteness and it was complete!  I really like how they turned out.


I followed the current {SFYTT} challenge on the Reverse Confetti blog:

{HELLO} Card Share + Video

It's been a while since I had a new video to share in my {LET'S MAKE A CARD!} cardmaking series on YouTube, but today I've got a new card and video ready for you!


I wanted to create something that was fairly simple and quick to make, but still made a bold statement.  First, let me note that the green cardstock in the photos is much lighter in person, it just would not correct while editing.  The real color is closer to the button.

I used the Rosie Posie stamps and die set from Papertrey Ink as the main feature.  It's a double-stamping process that creates some amazing results!
