Finally had some free time to do some stamping just for fun! I have a pile of this weeks' challenges printed out on my work table and I got a couple covered with these cards!
I did a little water coloring on this card. For the background, I colored on my acrylic block with Ranger Distress Markers, spritzed the block with water and then stamped it on the card stock. I die cut the piece with my new Love Note die from Reverse Confetti. I inked the Funky Flower stamps with the same Ranger Distress Markers I used for the background - spritzed the stamps with water and stamped them over the background. I added enamel dots to the centers and stamped the sentiment from Birthday Buddies by Paper Smooches in black.
My colors were chosen for the Colour Q challenge
and I water colored for Virginia's View Challenge
And the Paper Smooches challenge - Anything Goes
My 2nd card is a clean and simple birthday card using the Circus Spectacular stamp set from MFT, a chevron embossing folder and stitched mat circle die.
I used a circus theme for the Cas-ology Cue Card - Carnival
My son, Josh, and his partner, April are coming to dinner Saturday night and after church on Sunday two friends and I are having a St. Patrick's Day sale and then a card stamping workshop at church - so I've got a busy weekend!
I'll be back on Monday at 7 pm EST - at the Waltzingmouse Pajama Party - and on Tuesday - I'll be posting a new spring template from Creations by AR - hope to see you then!
