Piggy's and Palm Tree's

Good morning all.

This week I needed two cards, the first one is a get well card for a very sweet lady the broke her foot and needed surgery.



I thought the little piggy's were the perfect chose. I stamped the Pig in Puddle  then masked him ans stamped the new Brick Wall. They were colored with Copic markers. I stamped the Leonard the Pig Billboard and I used the Get Well Prayer to stamp the sign. Then fussy cut.

My second card was for my grandson Saturday was his 17th Birthday.


I started by sponging the circle die cut with it still in the die. then I stamped the Silhouette Palm Tree Line, them I sponged the card front with some of the same ink. The Small 1 Line Happy Birthday was stamped on a strip of white paper that was layered onto orange card stock.

Have a wonderful day,

Tropical Beauty

Hi all, I hope your week has went well. It has been raining here every day but at least it's not been as hot as past summers.



My card today has been a work in progress, I wanted to color the new Pretty Bird Odie Parrot like a sun Parrot then I added him to the color blocked background, I kept thinking it needed something more so I colored up some of the Flower Border  and fussy cut then added some Liquid Pearls to the center and attached them with foam tape. Everything was colored with Zig markers including the greeting  Just Dropping You A Line  .

Have a wonderful day,

Urban Cowgirl

Hi all, for my card today I am using the new Brick Wall.




I stamped the wall with black ink then sponged on Distress Ink in firebrick and antique photo. After I finished  sponging I thought it needed something more so I used a gray Copic to color the grout. The Lasso Cowgirl was colored with Copic markers. I cut the Better in Cowboy Boots Greeting apart. And I stamped the Cowboy Garb and cut out the boot added some twine and popped it up.

Have a great day,

Janett

Tropical Sunset

Hi all, It's been a rainy week here. So I thought a tropical sunset would cheer me up a little.


I stamped the new Silhouette Palm Tree Line then clear embossing. I colored the sky with Zig markers and a Sepectum Noir Sparkle pen It has a lot of sparkle. Then I stamped the Life is Measured Greeting. I can see I will get a lot of use out of this stamp.



Have a wonderful day,

Sandy Beach

Hi all, hope your weekend has been a blast.

For my card today I used the new Sandy Mermaid, this stamp is so cute it reminds me of my granddaughter playing on the beach.


I stamped her and colored with Copic. On the blue background I stamper the Anchor with Coco Ink and the greeting is As You Retired Greeting. The brown paper was embossed in a embossing folder then I rubbed Nuvo Mousse in Comic Brown over the top.

I took a little trip over to a beautiful garden this week, I always come home with so many ideals. So I spent Saturday working in the yard.



Have a Wonderful day,
Janett

Monochromatic Coloring


 Today I am sharing a technique that I learned from a Jennifer Mc Guire You Tube Video.  It's Monochromatic Coloring it's very simple to do but I love the effect. All you need is a white pencil a blending pencil and a Versa Mark pen. 
For added shimmer I did use a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen.


On this card I used the Lighthouse and As You Retire.


For the inside I stamped the Happiness Retirement Greeting  and the Sailboat.


On this one I used the Golf Bag and Ain't Got That Swing.



I hope you give this fun easy technique a try.

Have a Wonderful day,

Janett
